A Purrfect Day!
For the first time in a looong time, I am able to report a (mostly) perfect on-program day! I did so well, resisted so much temptation, that I am sharing my Sparkpeople nutrition report with you:
As you can see, I did have a beer and a bit of "white stuff," but I was still under my calorie range. Early in the day, I'd decided to cancel Pizza Night, not feeling strong enough to resist the ewwwy gooey bready cheesiness, and opted to make vegetarian chili for the family. I baked them a batch of Kenny Rogers' corn muffins which, if you're never had them believe me, are the best corn muffins on the planet! I ate one. That's it. Just one. If that's not a NSV I don't know what is! For myself I sauteed some shrimp and steamed broccoli and along with that muffin, I was full & satisfied. Another NSV: I didn't eat a bite after 7 pm. That may not make any difference in the weight loss department but I myself hate to go to bed on a full stomach. I feel bloated and out of control when I indulge in that late night feasting.
I felt really good about myself this morning when I woke up and had nothing to feel guilty about (well, diet-wise anyway..wink..) and could start my day knowing that I hadn't failed, wasn't starting over once again. I know, it's only one day, but that's all we can focus on, right?
And considering how my morning started out, I'll take all the good stuff I can get!
As for the rest of the day, I'm determined to keep this streak going, hope to share another (nearly) perfect report with you tomorrow. Since Patrick expressed an interest in tonight's planned dinner recipe, I took a picture from the magazine to share...I doubt that mine will look quite as pretty but we'll see!
Have a Beauty-Full Day,
