Just a quick check-in. I'm typing from my parents' old computer. I have no recipes to share: just a report that my mother has been over feeding me! Cake and ice cream 2 nights in a row. What? I'm a grown woman who could turn down cake and ice cream? Really? :P
What happens to my healthy eating when I'm away from my regular controlled environment? I hit the pause button. *sigh* Well, I'm still doing better (cake and ice cream aside) then I would have done in the past. I'm still making better choices overall and turning down somethings. Like this morning, I turned down my mother's muffin offer since I'd already eaten my bowl of cereal. That's a small victory, right? I have some ability to turn down food. Even stuff with chocolate in it. (They were banana bran chocolate chip muffins.)
I have no recipes to share, as I said, but I did buy a new, delightful looking crock pot recipe book with some healthy looking recipes to try. I'll have to input them all into the online ww recipe tracker though, as there are no nutritional values given in it. Shouldn't it be like stuff we buy in the grocery store? everything labelled? with cals, fat and fiber at least? Just sayin'!
I also have no pictures to share. I did bring my camera, but didn't think you'd want to see a picture of my large piece of chocolate cake with ice cream. Anyway, I found this old picture my dad scanned I guess. It's of my cousin, Tracey and I at my dad's old homestead on the Gaspe coast. It cracks me up because my sweet Aunt Dot was so over-protective (and guess which one of us turned out to be the wild child? irony, eh?). My cousin is COVERED in a towel, while I'm totally not and probably getting soaked. Love my mother- even though she feeds me cake!
Hope you all are having a good week! I think I regained the amount I HAD been down during this past week, but that's ok. I'll do better when I'm home again.
