The past couple of days I have had a grilled pork loin fillet for dinner (pictured left) - It turned out amazing! This particular day I had grilled a green pepper to go with it - All together it was only 225 calories! It felt way more indulgent than that. I will definitely be a repeat offender of this meal. I had only bought a pack with 2 loins in it so the next day I had grilled up the other loin with some cucumber salad that I whipped together. I have posted about the salad before but to save you some back tracking it's just cucumbers and onions sliced up thin, seasoned with dill, cracked pepper & mixed with a little bit of ranch dressing. I let it sit in the fridge for about an hour before eating. It's very good, low calorie and refreshing!
Tonight for dinner I finally tried that parsnip I bought. It was ok, I know I can prepare it a lot better but I ended up slicing it circle wise and baking it in the oven with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. I ate them with 2 eggs that I pan fried with my olive oil spray. I wasn't feeling too creative today.
I was doing so good with my lemon water and I completely forgot to do it this morning before work! I totally spaced it off but I managed to get my coffee made lol - I don't think I can ever give up coffee, I love it so much! I still have yet to get back into the green tea. One step at a time I guess but hopefully sooner than later my lemon water will be such a part of my morning routine that I won't forget, I'll just get it done without having to think about it.
I have been doing very well with self-discipline. Trust me, there was a big part of me that wanted to go get cheese curds today but I didn't! Now if someone where to put them out in front of me, I'm sure that would be a different story - lol
This weekend I know I am going to be bad. Saturday Michael and I are going out and I plan to have a few drinks. I have already made up my mind that Saturday will be my cheat day. Nothing too crazy, just cheating with liquid calories and possibly a meal in moderation!
It has been a great first week of seriously being back on track. I am actually looking forward to weighing in tomorrow. I hope to be at least 1 pound down. I have been behaving! Even when I went out for lunch on Wednesday with my co-workers I got a small side salad and chicken noodle soup. That is the hardest part for me when trying to be healthier is when I am at a restaurant and have to choose something besides a hamburger, fries, etc... In my mind, if I can't indulge, why go out to eat? I don't know, maybe it's just me but either way I'm proud of myself!
I will blog at you guys tomorrow to let you know how my weigh in went! Until then have a good rest of your day :-)
I have a bunch of fortune cookies left over from our wedding (they were part of our favor bags) so I have been opening one up everyday. This was my fortune the other night!
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
