So this morning I went in weighed in at my Curves location for the contest that I am in. In all honesty I expected to gain some weight because my eating habits had NOT been good at least for 3 of the days since my last weigh in. At my job we had Parent/Teacher conferences last Thursday and also this past Monday. So on Thursday I helped myself to about 4 slices of pizza and on Monday I had Pasta...alot of it. Now mind you I had not had pasta in a few months so I think I just had a mini-melt down. What really didn't make it any better was that I had more pasta yesterday because of left overs. So yea I was bad... I also had not been to the gym in a while because I injured my left hand last Tuesday while working out during a boxing class on a punching bag. My hand is still sore. So I plan on going back to class but I know I will need to make a doctor's appt. to check out my hand to see what is up.
I still have been doing my walks so that has been keeping me steady and probably contributes to why I didn't gain as much weight as I thought I should have. When I got on the scale I had gone back up 4 pounds. I took a breath and had to remind myself that I did eat poorly and this was the result of my actions. Now the old Jasmine would have gotten defeated and thought screw this, I'm done, I'm a failure and I won't succeed. It's taken me a long time to realize that I will have setbacks from time to time, but I can't give up.
This past Sunday I didn't go on one of my nature walks because I was out with my family to celebrate my parent's 39th Anniversary out at Bristol's Seafood Grill for brunch. Afterwards my mom, sister and I went to Best Buy to look into a printer for my sister and then Plaza Frontenac for some items for my mom. So by the time we got back home at 4pm it was a wrap and I was in the house for the evening. Now later on that evening I did go back out and went to Hooters......yea like I said, an epic 6 days of not so good eating decisions.
So now I'm doing ok. I made some scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast. I made a smoothie to drink at work and brought in broccoli and some turkey meat for lunch. So I think I'm doing alright. I realized that I might need to change up my menu a lot more from time to time so I don't get bored. I think I was eating greens so much last week, I was just like UGHHH anything else even though I do enjoy them.
I have been checking out this awesome website called The Gracious Pantry that has alternative ways of making favorite recipes so that they are healthy. I have had my eye on a Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe for quite some time.....and I think it's about that time to make it. Don't need nor want another setback.
