First I just want to say
for all the encouraging, supportive comments on my blog yesterday. After reading them I thought to myself What am I doing. This is the old me, depressed eat. This is how I got into this state in the first place. I quit smoking, Paul started giving me problems, of course there were other stressors and I turned to food. I did do it again yesterday. A container of ice cream later, a 1/2 bag of skittles later and a box of Gobstoppers later,(that is all I am confessing to)
and I can see the old me trying to make a come back. I am glad I have my spark friends to say hold it. Put that nervous energy, stress, nerves, what ever you want to call it into something productive. I have made my phone calls, done what I can. So instead of sitting and crying and watching the idiot box and snacking, I am back. I wish I could tell you that my heart was into it 100% or even 50% but it isn't. If I just do it though, I am hoping that my motivation comes back. I have worked to dang hard to backslide now. In the end who would that help, would it make Paul happy or get him what he needs? NO.
This week the 2013 Winter Into Spring 5% Challenge Community is heading to Bangkok Thailand. We are taking off from the UK and it is 5,863 miles to our destination. That means in order to land our plane we have to have 5,863 exercise minutes. Our team is not doing very well. The Living the Good Life Challenge is Breakfast and Recipe. I like this challenge. You have to find a different breakfast recipe each day and of course you must eat breakfast everyday. Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It sets the tone for the day. It is an all or nothing challenge, which means you get 10 points or 0. You don't have to eat the recipe you look up, the purpose of the challenge is to broaden your horizons. My recipe for the day is Healthy, Fruity Hand Tarts Here is the link. recipes.sparkpeople.com/
The only thing I don't like is everything is 4-8 servings. I am one person. I don't want 4 servings and it is hard to make just one without wasting food. I don't think these could be frozen. I picked these because after not eating them for years, I ate 2 McDonald's apple pies. Yummy, I love those, never should have eaten them again. Now I want them everyday.
I got them out of my system once, I will do it again. 3 full days without those pies.
I will find another recipe for you tomorrow. I must confess that this is more fun that watching the idiot box. My tummy doesn't think so though.
I didn't even realize that it was St. Patrick's Day yesterday until I received some goodies. I just want to wish everyone a belated Happy St. Patrick's Day. I hope we can all find the pot of gold at the end of each of our rainbows.
