Sunday Stuff


I gave in to a few cravings yesterday but I think I didn't go too crazy. And I am back on the wagon and trying to do things right. Today so far I have eat a couple of bites of lean pork and a banana and my lifesaver . . . coffee. I am making chicken stew for supper. I LOVE that. I was giving Notsosnowwhite the recipe yesterday and it sounded so good, I had to make it for us too. LOL

I discovered something about my wedding rings that made me smile. I used to have size 11 rings that were too small and I wore them on a necklace on my neck. Now, I wear my husband's size 9 ring and my wedding rings are 2 sizes too big! I never thought I would lose weight in my hands. Wow.

I have a couple of questions:
  1. How often do you use oil in your cooking? Do you use it at all? Do you use PAM instead?---I use PAM and I almost never use oil.
  2. Do you eat breakfast? If you do what do you eat?--I have been eating breakfast weekdays. Weekends are a bit more hit and miss. I usually make myself a couple of eggs with veggies and some coffee. But I change it up once in a while by experimenting with different things I can do to oatmeal.






And here are some things I am thinking of adding to every post.

  • Today I am thankful for . . . .
  • Today I successfully . . .
  • Today I will not . . .

So, Today I am thankful for bananas. I had some given to me and I have been really enjoying them. They fill me up, they taste a little sweet and they add so much flavor to my smoothies and my oatmeal.

Today I successfully cleaned up the living room. When I got up this morning, Little Princess had been up for an hour and had kinda trashed the living room. So I made her a waffle and oatmeal and then while she was eating, I cleaned up the mess.

Today I will not use the weekend as an excuse to go off my diet. Today is a new day and I will eat on plan even if it is harder when everyone is here.

I agree...coffee is a lifesaver. Good job getting back on track before you REALLY did fall. You are just doing so excellent.
As to your questions, I normally use PAM unless the recipe specifically needs the oil. I try to eat breakfast every morning but sometimes only get coffee in. I'm working on that.

Bodie is doing a little better but not eating much. I would be the most horrible paranoid parent. I guess it's good for now that I only have a dog to spoil the crap out of.

I am thankful for....all your support you've given me these past few months.
I will not...use this weekend as an excuse to overeat either.
I forgot the other one. I commit to staying in points every day this coming week. Was that one?

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Well done for getting "back on the wagon" straight away. You are going well.

I LOVE bananas.

I only use olive oil spray.

I always eat breakfast. Mostly AllBran and skim milk with sultanas sprinkled in and 2 wholegrain toast with light cream cheese spread and marmalade and a black tea.

I had quit coffee for a few years since I had started having the nosebleeds but have slowly started adding about a half cup back and I love it all over again..lol Yes, it is a lifesaver!

I do use Pam Olive Oil spray but I also use Olive Oil some cooking for the heatlh benefits. I just don't go overboard.

Yes, I eat breakfast every day. I don't eat it until I am up for about 2 hours though. I used to eat egg wraps, but now eat low fat turkey wraps!

And yes, I have a free day on Saturday or I would quit the whole thing..lol But that doesn't work for everyone.. :-)

hugs,
April

Coffee, gift from the gods!!!
I use PAM when it's stuff for me. A lot of the stuff that the DH loves has oil and I use that for his stuff. I also try to eat a bowl of Special K most mornings for breakfast.


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
