I made the Tex Mex Calzone from the Spark Recipes (search under cuisine: mexican). I don't cook often and no experience with using dough. It turned out great though and was extremely filling! Of course, the kid decided it looked "different" so he wouldn't eat it and Randy's hunting. So I ate and appreciated it alone. :-p Well I take that back, the cat enjoyed watching me.
I think I will use the idea of baking stuff within the crust in the future, but switch it up by putting chicken and some other vegetables (broccoli maybe or artichoke) inside.
I baked some sugar cookies with Cameron. They have left the house smelling so good. Too bad for my taste buds that I refuse to eat them.
I've been rewarding myself for every 5lbs lost. I've been back and forth over work out dvd, workout long sleeved shirt amongst other things. Today it hit me that I wanted to sign up for sparkcoach! So I purchased a 3 month subscription. I don't think my motivation is at all lacking however, the holidays are coming up, and this is the time of year that always disrupts my weight loss efforts.
Things I was proud of today:
-Planning my meals ahead today. By doing this, I was able to reach all my recommended nutrition values and eat the minimum amount of calories!
-Planning ahead for possible loss of motivation/temptation from holidays.
My mantra is: Its only two days, its only two days. I can make it through two days. I don't eat like crap usually so why would I eat like crap the other days?! (I've been saying this to myself while meditating during walking, ever since Halloween. By the holidays I hope to have it stuck in my brain).
Things I'm thankful for today:
-The good weather. I got to go out twice already and still plan on one more.
-Whiskers. Just when I start to feel lonely, he pops up to remind me that is silly.
-The 5% weight loss challenge for pushing me.
