A veiw of the pretty snow)
Last night on my way home from work I noticed that I kept trying to talk myself into skipping the gym. I'm not sure why I am so resistant to working out. I knew it was only going to be for 30 mins and once I was there I'd be glad I had gone, but something in my brain just kept telling me to stay home. Michelle had texted me when I was pulling in asking if I wanted to go to the movies later so I told her I'd go work out now and text her when I was done so we could go. Then I was ready to go. I knew if I didn't work out I'd really feel guilty about going to the movies. So I did it. As much as I tried talking myself out of it, I got my 30 mins of cardio in! When I got home I made my dinner and waited for Michelle to call but the snow storm had started so we both decided it was better to just stay in. So instead I made a smoothie for my brother and I, and it was sooo good! And only 2 WW points for the whole thing.
(don't mind the random cup it is in, it's my parents. Don't ask lol)
The past two days I was having problems with feeling hungry all day. I didn't have a big breakfast either day, and I had lunch rather early (10:30 both days). So today I had apple cinnamon oatmeal and I made sure to drink tons of water. I also waited until a little later to eat lunch. I did snack throughout the day, but I had planned it ahead of time. I made sure to have lots of fruits and veggies with me.
When I got up this morning everything was covered in snow!!! We had gotten about 9 inches over night. I don't really mind snow, but I am ready for spring, as is everyone I am sure. I made it to work without any major issues. But once I arrived at work is when I had some issues.
As I was getting everything pulled up at work on my computer a woman I work with came by with this beautiful chocolate chip cheesecake!!! She said she had heard it was national cheese cake day or something like that and decided to make it to share. Who the hell knew there was a national day for cheesecake (not that it doesn't deserve one!)? Well It looked amazing! But I knew I couldn't blow it before I even started working so I passed, and heated up my oatmeal for breakfast. That cheesecake stared at me the rest of the day! I had text my brother Tony about it and included the picture. His response was "It has poop in it" That was so funny to me! So I had my oatmeal and half way through the morning I had some veggies to munch on. We had vegetable soup for lunch and it was really good. But as I was sitting there eating it this appeared:
That would be chocolate cake with marshmallow icing (I LOVE MARSHMALLOW ANYTHING!!!) with candy pieces on top!!! Another girl at work had made it for someone’s birthday and they sent a piece up to me. I once again decided that second I was not eating that! So I "donated" it. I gave it to one of the guys I work with and he appreciated my donation.
Tonight I am going to try a few new recipes. Thanks to Pinterest I will be making spaghetti squash, and topping it with a homemade spaghetti sauce and for a side dish I will be making cheesy cauliflower garlic bread. I really hope it turns out well because it is unbelievably low in WW points and everyone who has made it on the site said it was amazing. So we shall see. I will be sure to post some pictures of it tomorrow, good or bad lol.
