Weekend was neither super nor completely horrible. I ate like a person not trying to lose weight, but also who isn't a complete glutton. Yesterday we stayed inside all day as it was too cold to take the kids out to do anything (in the teens and super windy- ick!). I ate too many fruit snacks yesterday after making the mistake of buying them for Spencer. I just can't resist them and I don't even know why. But, at least they're low-fat and pretty low calorie...
today I'm GOING TO THE GYM NO MATTER WHAT. My cold is mostly gone aside from being a bit congested and having a gross taste in my mouth... both of which will probably fade by mid-morning. Seems my symptoms are always worse when I wake up and at night. And I've really been neglectful of my plan, and two weeks is a long enough break. I'm getting back into th gym and I'm going to kick butt.
I made a yummy pasta dish for lunch with whole wheat rotini, pesto sauce, chicken, broccoli, mushrooms, and sundried tomatoes. I know the pasta is about 200 calories, and the pesto is probably kind of high too, but other than that it's a pretty healthy dish. I like the fact that the pesto really only clings to the broccoli, it's so thin it doesn't hold well on the noodles- so I get the taste but when I'm finished eating there's a ton of sauce left on the plate. I'm sure that helps reduce calories, lol.
Anyway, because my lunch is pretty big and filling, I'm sticking to mostly veggies for snacks today. And I will get back into counting calories, which I've been slacking in doing.
We're most likely visiting family at the end of March (over Easter weekend)- I'd like to lose 10 or 15 lbs by then. Ideally- 10 or 15 in addition to the 3 or 4 I've lost (since I gained a pound or two back), but, total would still be nice if I can't get to that 20 pound goal.
Before I go off to work- haircut pictures!
