So I was going through old blogs and checking out my past trackers...trying to see where I went right and get some tips so I can re-create some of that success I've had over the years. One of my big problems that I've always had is my food intake once I get home. I can't seem to control how I eat once I leave work. Its like I see my kitchen and Im in sudden 'snack attack' mode. Maybe its the built up stress during the day or just the safety of being home that makes you too comfortable. Not sure but things need to change. I found these food blogs I used to do in late 2009. I've been wanting to do it recently but I know its not possible with my work schedule to snap pix and write blogs consistently. But these blogs I found..they were only dinner blogs. Light Bulb!! All I need to do is dinner blogs. It makes me accountable for what I eat at the hardest part of my day which is all I really need cuz Im doing pretty good from 9-5. So starting Monday, I start again. Going to plan some really healthy meals...go food shopping and just hope for the best. In the meantime, I have been watching what Im eating these last few days. Tracking as best as I can. If not on paper, Im definitely making mental calculations. So far a half pound loss. Not much but at least its not a gain (which is what it seems to be lately).
Okay, thats all for now. On a footnote, found this killer recipe for some "Vegan" Skor bars that I invented a few years ago. Its still chocolate but I'm really proud of how much flaxseed and soynuts I put in there. Ppl may argue that its really unhealthy but everything in moderation right? If you're interested, enjoy the treat:
Vegan Skor Bar Recipe:
1 bag Heath Chocolate chips with toffee bits
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
3/4 cup ground soy nuts (unsalted)
1/2 can fat free condensed milk
Mix this all together and bake it in an oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Once out of the oven, break a Symphony bar into pieces and place over bars...after 5 minutes, the chocolate will melt and then you can spread it around. It sounds rich but I put it in a 13x9 pan and a little goes a long way. I had 1/10 of the whole pan for about 250 calories. Plus, flaxseed has a lot of benefits so if you can sneak some in between some chocolate, all the better, right?!
