Well my usual morning protein shake turned out crappy this morning, not sure what the problem was, I think it was lack of fruit so it turned out tasting like chocolate ice milk - ICK, so disappointed but I'm not letting that ruin my day. I am rather hungry since I tossed the shake in the sink.
So hmmm, look over there on the counter.... someone brought in bagels. I am really hungry so I talked myself into having a bagel. It's ok really, you can have one with some light cream cheese, it's ok. So, I just finished a bagel and boy was it yummy and it's not going to wreck the rest of my day's eating plan, so I am glad I let myself have one. Every now and then, it's OK, really.... it's taken me a long time to get to the point of "OK" and I'm happy I can say "OK" every now and then.
Not much of anything planned for the weekend, except a run in the morning and a yoga class, but this lady of leisure will find something constructive to do, no couch potato weekend for me, been there, done that, and over it. Hope everyone has a fun filled weekend.

This week has been filled with a whole lot of NOTHING. I've been feeling miserable (TOM), and let me say TOM never really bothers me, except about once every six months or so, but this time around, holy ham, I'm just sapped. Suffering horrible cramps, bloated to the extreme (feel and look like a blowfish - ok, that's a tad exaggerated), feels like I've put on 50 pounds since last week, feeling totally miserable, yep, I'm whining cuz I have been sooooo miserable this week. And the mood swings and irritability are over the top (that is not an exaggeration, just ask anyone who has been within 5 feet of me this week, they can totally attest to my pleasant nature, definitely sarcasm here)
I have to admit I have not done a thing, no exercise, nothing. And it's really getting to me, this week, so far, seems like it's all I can do to drag myself out of bed in the mornings, go to work, only to come home from work and put on my jammies and just sit on the couch. What is wrong with me? Totally not my style.
Goal for today is to do SOMETHING, just a little something fitness wise, I just have physically felt bad, but will do my best tonight to do it anyway. I have been staying within the calorie range, actually a tad under since I really have not had an appetite this week. WOW, I'm just falling to pieces, but at least I'm not eating bad foods or overeating.
Sheesh, I feel better now with this confessional to myself and to all my SP buddies: I've just been a lazy couch potato all week.

One of my goals each month is to make a new recipe - this month I tried SPARK Paleo Chicken Enchiladas. Last night I had a house full of guinea pigs to try out the new recipe. Three out of five voted THUMBS DOWN !!! But Sis and I agreed it was ok, but the sauce could have used a little help, the spices were just right, but too runny. The sauce was made up of chicken broth and tomato sauce with a tad of cumin and chili powder, poured over grilled chicken breast and cauliflower.
I thought it was pretty good, the sauce just needed to be thicker but it had a great flavor. I really wish I knew how to cook, I could have doctored the sauce up, but since I only cook by following a recipe I'm at a real disadvantage, I'm obviously not kitchen savvy. I have plenty of leftovers since three out of five people are picky-pants. Looks like I'm going to be eating chicken enchiladas for a couple of days (lunch, dinner, snack, etc.) because I don't waste food, perhaps I might freeze it in individual servings for future lunches for me.
So I will try to add something to it tonight, any suggestions to help a hopeless cook?

Well my wonderful busy weekend I had planned got totally rearranged, so it was mostly a DUD, but a few highlights...
Went to school with daughter on Friday, that was fun and we skipped out a few minutes early for a girlie shopping trip. Must have been my lucky day, I finally found a pair of jeans that fit and was on clearance for five bucks, woo hoo, that never happens to me. And my daughter and I got matching dresses for five bucks too.
No long run on Saturday, but did attend the runner's safety program. Will share details tomorrow from that. Very informative. Went to my granddaughter's basketball game, then out to lunch with daughter and her BF. (Decided against Mexican - way too many calories, opted for a healthier choice - kids meal at Cracker Barrel, grilled ckn and veggies) Then hubby and I came home and ended up taking a two hour nap, WOW, guess I'm getting old. Then we spend the evening baking and watching a movie.
Sunday, no hot yoga, I slept late and then after being up for two hours, fell back asleep on couch with my daughter. Big family dinner and watched The Social Network, pretty good movie, then finished the lazy day out with yet another movie, daughter and I stayed up to watch Titanic for the millionth time.
It was a L A Z Y weekend, I must have really needed to catch up on my sleep. But back at it today, gonna be great weather for an afternoon run, gonna take advantage of that since it's going to be cold again tomorrow. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and are ready to get back to work today.
