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.
Ok…enough of my ramblings. The Golden Globes are on!!! Time to check out what everyone is wearing!!!!!
