I know what I have to do . . .

by spiceaholic on February 13, 2012

It is definitely much easier and more fun to gain weight than to lose it.  I was doing fine up until a couple weeks ago — rejoined Weight Watchers, was tracking my food, making better choices.  And then, I’m not sure what happened but I sure as hell wasn’t tracking my food and not making good choices.

And so now I’m paying the price.

Even though I get bored with doing daily eats posts, they really do help me stay on track.  So I guess I should quit fighting it and just do them as much as I can.  Plus it seems like some of you like seeing my daily eats!

Here’s today’s eats:

Protein shake to start the morning off.

Blueberry oatmeal with fresh blueberries and cinnamon.

Rotini and meatballs with some fresh spinach.  Last year I bought some Nutrisystem food to get me through tax season and I still have a couple boxes of it to get through.  It’s good for convenience, but I get too bored eating all the food all the time.

Cocoa almonds! I love these.

Blood orange –  not as sweet as I was hoping.

Cheesy pizza bites — still working my way through some of the Medifast stuff I ordered.  These aren’t bad for when the salty crunchy munchies hit.

I hit up Whole Foods on the way home (not something I do a lot) to pick up some stuff for dinner tomorrow night and decided to pay the olive bar a visit.  Had a few olives while I made dinner.

Some really good rosemary olive oil bread from Whole Foods.  I’ve already got a good idea for a sandwich using this bread.  In the meantime, I’ll keep enjoying thin slices here and there.

It was nice knowing what I was going to make for dinner!  I baked some salmon and roasted some new potatoes, then made a Dijon-dill sauce and steamed some broccoli.  I’ll post the recipe for the sauce in a separate post.   Not bad at all considering I was making it up as I went!

That’s it for today!

**Good news!  I’m up to 30% in the Alexia Foods “Reinvent a Classic” Fry Challenge!  I’m still solidly in 2nd place, but if we can keep closing the gap over the next 6 weeks there’s still a chance I could win!  Please keep voting!**
