Well hello there...
I know I skipped yesterdays post. I just did not feel like it. I have been feeling lost lately and have not been having much to say.
Yesterday I cleaned all day and had a few friends over last night. I drank a lot of wine. I have no idea how many calories I drank in wine and I don't think I want to know. I also have been slacking with my green tea. I only had a cup yesterday. Today I still have yet to drink any but I will at least get 2 cups in before the day is over. It's not the 5 like I normally drink but I just haven't been feeling the tea thing lately. Tomorrow I will get my 5 in.
This weekend like the rest I have slacked. I didn't workout yesterday and I still have yet to work out today. This morning I had 2 eggs and wheat toast for breakfast. I made Michael some bacon and I had 3 pieces. For lunch I made a wheat pita bread pizza. I made one for the first time yesterday and they are so good! (picture above) Each pizza is about 290 calories depending on your toppings. I have been making mine with a tablespoon of pizza sauce, onion, mushroom, spinach, green pepper, tomato and slice of provolone to top it off. I cook them at 375 for about 15 minutes. They are filling and I LOVE pizza so it is a win/win for me. I am excited to start experimenting with different kinds. A little bit ago I made banana ice cream. A friend had told me about it some time ago and I recently saw it on TV. I pureed 11 bananas and added 3 tablespoons of peanut butter, chopped peanuts and vanilla flavoring. It made a lot! I have 3 containers FULL in my freezer. I still have yet to try it. I hope it's good! I will let you guys know tomorrow.
On another note I have found that trying to be someone you are not is exhausting! With this journey I have recently gone through a "lost" phase. I didn't know how to act, how to be or who I was. I went through a period where I was second guessing myself and was trying to do whatever I could do to feel like I "fit in". How I was feeling words can't really describe but what matters now is that I see things clearly and am going to just be me. I was so focused on what others thought of me that it had interfered with my life, the people in it and my weight loss journey. I now realize that I need to let go of that people pleasing attitude and that if no one were to like me; that's their problem, not mine.
....ONWARD TO TOMORROW!
