Slowly but surely.

Well, the cookies are still attacking me, but my desire for them is waning quite a bit. Right now my main craving is for Peanut M&Ms. I have some cashews I have for my crunchy bits. So far the last couple days (outside of the cookies) have been very good healthy eating days. I even tried a new recipe for Turkey Spinach enchiladas!
My husband enjoyed them just as much as I did and he has requested I put it on the list of "usuals"... along with my lasagna and other such good things.
During my period this week, weight shot up to 221! I hate being a girl. But today, 217.5. So i'm down roughly a pound from my last week's weigh in and have gotten rid of the bloat from my period. So maybe i'm doing something right?? I'll be more convinced later when my weight is under 210. Maybe If I can finally get down to 210 or lower, and it keeps going down, I can tell the doc to bugger off! I'm still irritated at him for claiming i'm not doing enough. I wasn't even obsessing over the cookies yet! what a jerk! (speaking of.. i need to call for my blood test results.)
Spark Coach seems to help somewhat. At least it helps me focus and gets me to track better. I have been keeping a notebook with notes from my Spark Coach days and trying to put in my meal plans for the day as well. I am thinking about a calendar to put on the fridge for meal plans, but dealing with my mother-in-law and the kitchen is not going to be fun. She'll state it's a great idea and then bash me for putting something on the fridge. Bad enough she's whining i'm cleaning the pans by hand... I can't win with her. Sucks and it's stupid! Just like I don't cook on the correct burner, no matter what i'm making. hah.
I really want to find pumpkin!! I want to make pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie and pumpkin STUFF!! No pumpkins to be found around here right now
And Halloween is my favourite time of year! wooohoo! But Halloween is not that popular in England. So, my husband will try to track down some pumpkins for me later in the month... and hopefully I'll get to have my "Thanksgiving" dinner in a month and half too!
I've been asked to make a Thanksgiving dinner. Once i get my cargo, I have some good weight watcher recipes from various times for Thanksgiving to use! So I look forward to making them.
anyways... sort of good and doing better. let's hope it stays that way. Preferably without cookies haunting me! I will do an hour on the elliptical for cookie punishment... and general workout business. First, a quiz to do for school! THEN workout.
