Thanks to all that left wonderful supportive comments on my “new goals” post yesterday. It is in the moments of reading your comments that I realize how blessed I am to be a part of such a great community, and to have such wonderful friends. I have made many connections over the past year, formed friendships, and I know that I can always turn to the blog world for support. For that I thank you all, and I am very humbled to have so many great friends :)
So on to the matter at hand. I am doing very well getting back on track after the holidays. Which is such a great feeling. I have been mindful of the food choices I make, as well as getting back into the workout world. I started keeping my food journal again and tracking my activities. By doing so it easier for me to decisions that I know are the best ones. I have realized with past experience that you really do not realize what all you eat until you track it.
Happy 50th WIAW!! This is a small glimpse of how my daily food choices are going…..
- Breakfast – oats w/ peanut butter & banana slices
- Lunch – leftover chicken & sausage gumbo
- Dinner – spinach and cheese quiche w/ steamed veggies, & chicken tortilla soup (minus the tortilla)
- Snack – 1/2 small sliced apple w/ cinnamon, a scant handful of pecans, and a clementine
Not a bad day if I say so myself! I have been enjoying a small plate of fruit every night while reading or watching t.v. I didn’t realize how much I missed it until this week. Lately I have been eating leftover desserts or ice creams. So one of the things that I promised myself was to eat healthier desserts/snacks. That doesn’t mean I will not enjoy a treat from time to time. After all I have a girl’s night planned for Friday, but I have to get my sweet tooth back under control. What better way to do that than to replace refined sugar with fruits :)
Thank you Jenn for hosting a lovely party every week that allows us to express ourselves through food choices, make new friends, and get food ideas. Without you Wednesday would just be another day!!
