Welcome back! It has been a crazy busy week here. We are getting ready for popcorn sales for Little Man’s cub scouts, plus a camping trip a week away. I have a vendor show for my Dove Chocolate Discoveries business on Saturday and Little Miss is home sick today. Never a dull moment in our house!
This week went a little better on the exercise- I think the field trip we went on last Friday helped out a lot. I probably walked about 2 miles that day before it rained. I do not have a step tracker so I am just guestimating. I also used the elliptical a bit more this week. I did find some work out sessions on Amazon Prime so this week I plan on trying those starting tonight!
The food wise is another topic. I ate like crap. Which is why today’s picture is me telling my stomach to shut up! So Friday- I had some time to kill before I went to the school for the field trip. Clearly that meant I needed a bacon egg and cheese bagel sandwich from McD’s with a medium Caramel Frappe. My son made our lunch which was PB&J, some apples and some Chips. I was still hungry so while I waited for them I got a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a Dr. Pepper from Runza. Yep- totally need those carbs! HA! Really the rest of the week wasn’t to terrible for Breakfast I would mostly just have toast if anything, I did have a bowl of cheerios with banana in it. Lunch was left overs as usual- except for Monday- I was out and about so I stopped at Sonic for a chicken sandwich, tater tots and a Lg Cherry Limeade. (again killed my diet). I did have a healthy meal plan worked out and grocery shopping done. But my kids probably threw it away because I can’t find it! So here was our dinners for the week-
Sunday- Left Overs
Monday- Chicken fingers and baked beans
Tuesday- Biscuits and Gravy (it was in the 50’s and drizzling so perfect comfort food)
Wednesday- Pizza (it was just my son and I since Little Miss is sick)
Today I think we will have grilled cheese and tomato soup (another chilly dreary day so more comfort food).
Even though I did not eat the greatest I am down to 188 lbs! So I did lose a pound! This week I am going to focus on continuing the exercise and trying to motivate myself- but also eating better. I noticed I snack a lot when we are running around everywhere and when I am stressed (I broke open a bag of PURE DARK Peppermint Rounds last night). So need to work on that or find healthier options for snacking since my stomach thinks I need to eat when bored.
So topic question of the week: Are you a snacker when you are bored or stressed? What are some of the things you do instead of snacking or what are some of your favorite healthy snacks?
