Happy Sunday!   Have you had a good day?  I hope you were a bit more productive than I’ve been.  It’s been one of those days where I have done pretty much nothing.  It was what I planned.  This WAS R&R weekend.  But I’ve also realized that slothing around doesn’t make me happy.  If anything, it has the opposite effect.  I feel like I’m missing out on life, that there is always some chore that could be done….and as a result, I’m now ending the weekend feeling a little “meh”.  Not to say the day was a complete bust….

I made a stellar, special Sunday morning brunch for us.  I saw a recipe a while ago for stuffed french toast.  I gave it some thought, and realized I could easily “healthify” it.  Sooo…I spread 2 pieces of high fibre, thin bread with fat-free cream cheese, sliced a banana, dipped the sandwich in egg white, and topped it with sugar-free syrup.  With the 3 little pieces of turkey “bacon” and papaya, breakfast clocked in at only 8 points.   Super easy, super delicious, and we’ll be making this again.

I also had a soynog latte.

I have “Buzzing Guggenheim” working again.  Today I pureed some blackberries and cherries that were frozen.  I poured the mixture onto parchment, set it buzzing, and we’ll see how long it takes before it is “fruit leather”.

Much later in the afternoon, I made egg salad (with salsa) and put it onto a small bun and topped it with a 100 calorie pack of Wholley Guacamole.

I was craving comfort food tonight, so made some whole wheat pasta with meat sauce.  I had a weight watchers baguette on the side and it was sprinkled with some parmesan cheese.  I hang my head, I didn’t measure my portion, I just served.

I also had not one but TWO glasses of white wine.

I haven’t been on track with measuring and tracking over the last few days, and that may or may be reflected at Tuesday’s weigh in.  However, I’ll fret about that if/when I need to, and we move on.

According to our news today, tomorrow is “Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year” based on “weather, debt, time since Christmas, failing new year’s resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action”.   I’ve felt a little bit “blue Monday” today even though its only Sunday – I’m looking forward to shaking this feeling off and moving into a bright and busy week ahead.  I hope none of you are Blue on Monday, and that your weeks ahead bring much joy, laughter, health and success.
