What a fun word huh? Scrumpdillyicious. Yes, that is what the new Spark recipe that I made last night was. If you like soup, try the Spinach and Tortellini Soup. Made by Sparkpeople user MEGULS. It was a simple recipe that required no chopping and big fuss. Anyone could make it!
I went to weight watchers. My week of journaling and menu planning worked. I lost 4.2 lbs. Something that I have not done in forever. I feel strong and motivated and on a ROLL!
Woo Hoo For me. I think it worked so well that I will do the same thing this week! To do this means that I have to make good choices.
Last night I cooked a crock pot dinner. It was a coke roast that my family loves. I did not want to eat it because it is a high calorie dinner. So I planned in advance to make the Spinach tortellini soup for me to eat. All week long the family ate Spark meals, and low cal delights, so last night was Pot Roast and Grand Rolls. We had my father in law and his best friend, My daughters, one boyfriend and Dana and I. A nice table of 8. Dana was he Host with the most. Everyone wanted my soup. It was so good. And everyone enjoyed each others company. Many good stories were shared. It was a really nice meal and evening.
I left the table and felt full, and not deprived one bit. And we all know that the key to a successful life change is not to feel deprived.
I am off to look up new recipes, hit the gym and the store. Maybe not in that order, but it will all get done today. I may opt to work out while watching the Patriots play. We will see.
Do you ever cook something different for yourself than you do for your family? Do you have any good recipes to share, let me know, I am putting my grocery list together!
Here is to a strong week for us all!
