Weekend Confessions

Wow, it's been so long since I last blogged. I mean, two whole days! Did ya miss me? ;)

Friday was a great day! I went on a beautiful hike with Sam from Believe in Yourself, I ate well, (Forgot to take pictures, though I did snap one of dinner.) and I managed to enter a few recipes into the computer for my Aunt (which was my daily goal.) I just didn't really feel like blogging, you know?

Here is a picture of my dinner. I didn't want to cook or go out so I sent Russ to the Ethiopian Restaurant for take out. Its hard to tell what everything is, but there are lentils, beets, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, collard greens, beef, and an egg all on a sourdoughie, spongy piece of injira. Even for dinner I didn't eat much of the beef, and I didn't touch the egg. It just didn't sound good. Have my tastes changed that much in a month?

Yesterday (Saturday) SUCKED! I did nothing productive all day. I just read and watched Doctor Who.(Which I am loving, BTW)

And I ate. Boy did I eat. All day. It seems like I was at the fridge every hour or so scrounging. Looking back on it, most of my snacks were healthyish. I had lots of grapes and half a bag of baby carrots, some fat free Greek yogurt, a soy milk and banana smoothie. My meals weren't too bad either as I ate my leftovers for breakfast AND lunch (I know, but it was just so yummy I couldn't wait), and dinner was one piece of "pizza" and a sprout salad with garbanzo beans. I just ate WAY too much. I felt bloated and stuffed by the time I went to bed. I felt all oogie this morning, too. I guess my munching wouldn't have felt so bad except for the fact that I didn't do anything yesterday. The only exercise I got was going to the kitchen and opening the fridge. I feel bad that I wasted such a beautiful day, too. I could blame my husband...he played WoW all day...but it would have been easy to get him off his butt and out with me to do something fun together. It's just sometimes I just need that extra push, you know?

Lesson learned: Lazy Saturdays = Bad. I'm really going to work on the getting up and out bit on the weekends! No more wasted days!!! No more ooginess in the mornings! Oh! And no more Ghiradelli Caramel Chocolate Squares right before bed.

(Lucky for me, the scale did not reflect my indiscretion. Here is for a clean eating Sunday!)


  1. I have the same problem. My husband and I are both gamers. (Him moreso though) its actually come to the point where I have had to say things like "you must have a fat girl fetish, or you'd get my arse moving" etc etc, but now we are doing much better. I just say hey I want to do something and he gets up and we do it.

  2. We all have those days. Enjoy it for what it was, and move forward girl. Focus on all the great things you did do during the week! You're doing great!! :)

  3. Lazy days always make me feel so guilty! Never USED to be that way ... but before most all of my days were lazy. Crazy how these changes seem to be really making a difference, huh?

  4. Chin up and only LOOK forward. You don't need to feel bad about taking time for

  5. Good job on the hike!!! Celebrate that you made healthy snack choices and take this weekend's lessons and take them into next weekend where you'll move around some right? all the best, Ana!!!

    P.S. I don't make the egg salad sandwich I buy it at this one place where they make the best :) (pardon my late reply)

    Your daily goals are such a huge motivator for me. Can I borrow a leaf and try them? I'd like to see myself drink more water as opposed to cranberry and I think your daily/weekly goals might just be the way to go :)

    All the best in the new week!!!
