I know, I know I didn't post last week. I just came back from my WW weekly weigh in and thought I better sit down right now and post before time gets away again.
Two weeks ago I was down 1.1 lbs. Today I was up the 1.1 lbs. I was on a roll but ended up making some horrible choices this week. My dad became ill and had to be hospitalized. As you know, I am not good at dealing with stress and food. He is feeling better. I was thrown right out of my routine. I really have to work on dealing with this because let's face it, life happens.
One good thing did come out of this week. I realized (even though I should have know before) how badly some food choices affect the way you feel. On Thursday I had more bread than I have had in a long time. Before we left for the hospital I had 2 (yes 2) pieces of toast and a boiled egg and 2 cups of coffee. For mid morning coffee we also had a cookie. At lunch, we ended up at a diner and we had chicken salad sandwiches (yes, 2 more pieces of bread) and onion rings, along with another 2 cups of coffee. My dinner was not much better. Not only was I coffeed out, but I felt absolutely horrible and bloated by the end of the day. There is no way I want to feel like this again.
So, Friday morning before I went to the hospital I made the time to workout to the Ripped in 30 DVD and I prepared my food for the day. One of my new favourite breakfasts is peameal bacon (Canadian bacon) with blueberries. The bacon is lean and is 1 WW points plus each. Also, I prepared food to bring to the hospital because I knew the cafeteria would not offer many healthy choices. I brought a boiled egg, fresh cucumbers and a peach. When my mom and I went down for lunch, I just ended up buying a coffee. She was so worried that I would not have enough. I felt so much better than the day before. On the way home, I picked up Swiss Chalet quarter white chicken and salad. All in all, I learned a lesson this week. I just have to remember how horrible I felt and make better choices.
This summer I have not posted any of my garden updates I'm sure you have really missed them :-)
Our tomatoes and cucumbers have been really pitiful this year. They are barely growing at all. However, I did manage to pick some beans the other day. Not a lot but enough for us.
