Oops…

So apparently when I fall off the wagon I fall pretty hard. First it was a week of no blogging, and then it was a week of no blogging and not eating very healthy. Definitely not my proudest moment, but I think I am in a good place to start back up and stay on track. Before that I’ll give a little rundown of what exactly happened during the past two weeks.

Week 7

This was a good week! I followed my meal plans, ate what I was supposed to and worked out. I just didn’t write anything about it. I even took pictures with the intention of blogging. Oops. I am going to blame it on pre-spring break excitement and stress.

Week 8

This is where all hell broke loose. I went home, which means I don’t have control of everything I am eating. It wasn’t all bad. I had some cauliflower and chicken. But I also had breakfast sandwiches (bread) and pasta (eek). And then I got sick, so I had a few days of not much eating, which probably helped. But then I went to Boston. I think it is just impossible to stick to any diet when I am away. How do I not eat a big bowl of clam chowder in a bread bowl? I don’t. I eat that, and a lobster roll and a wood fired pizza. I got a lot of bad stuff out of my system, so hopefully I will be good for a while.

I am off to a good start today, and worked out, so things are looking up. Here’s to heading in to month 3 with some hope.

Week 6: Day 3

Feb. 24, 2015

Another decently solid day. I wore a dress today that I tried on last year at this time and couldn’t wear because I didn’t think it fit. Guess what, today it fit! I wore it, and I wore it proud. I think that was the first time I was able to tangibly see the progress I had made. Here’s to hoping it happens again and wearing my belt another hole smaller.

Breakfast

A new breakfast! This doesn’t happen very often, so I had to share a picture. I made a banana, peanut butter quesadilla. My inspiration came from this recipe. I used one tortilla shell folded in half, peanut butter and one banana and it was very filling. I probably wouldn’t have been able to eat more if I wanted to. I heated each side for a couple of minutes in a skillet and ended up with this gooey, crispy, hot heaven. And you can probably guess what I am going to say next, the best part was how easy it was. It probably took a max of 5 minutes to make.

Lunch

Kinda boring, but it got me through the rest of the day. Just some leftover tune with carrots and ranch. So. Sick. Of. Tuna.

Dinner

So with my boyfriend’s parents being in town I had to brave the dreaded restaurant menu for dinner. All of those wonderful pasta dishes staring back at me but unable to indulge in any. Luckily, I did have a kick-ass wedge salad that I will need to go back for. It consisted of a nice big wedge of iceberg, bacon, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, blue cheese and homemade ranch dressing. It was divine and filling. I did cheat a bit and have a slice of bread with the restaurant’s marinara, oil, garlic dipping concoction. It was sitting right in front of me and was still steaming. How do I pass up steaming bread? The answer: I don’t. I do however feel good about the salad I ate despite my desire to eat everything else on the menu.
