I hate to tell you this but I have not done very well at all on the challenge this week. I started off the week okay last Friday. We took my stepdaughter to lunch for her birthday at our most favorite pizza restaurant in town and I was good. I was really, really good. No pizza...no Steak Cheese Grinder....no Jerry's special...
I chose a wonderful grilled chicken salad with no cheese and a delicious light dressing on the side. It was really good! We spent some wonderful time with her and the grandgirl, who was happy as she could be and chattering like crazy. There's nothing quite like those happy baby sounds.
By the time that Saturday afternoon rolls around, the pizza that I didn't get the day before starts calling my name. Unfortunately it was calling David's name too as the day before he got his Steak Cheese grinder and left his pizza craving unfulfilled. It's a sad day when we both are craving pizza. Off we go.....
I wish I could tell you that we chose the awesome Greek Pizza full of yummy veggies and no meat. But I can't....
It was the Italian Sausage that called our name. And it was fabulous...
Every last bite of it!
Since we are celebrating the smallest of small victories over here, we refrained from getting the extra cheese that we used to get years ago. Yay!
Since Saturday was not a day for good choices, I awoke on Sunday craving pancakes.
Friends, I don't even like pancakes. Well, that's not entirely true. It's not fair to say that I don't like them. Pancakes taste awesome but I almost never eat them because they make me feel so bad. All David needed to hear was the word pancakes Sunday morning and he was up and ready for Country Kitchen.
Instead of ordering pancakes like I could have done or the big breakfast that has it all like David normally orders, I had the two egg breakfast with whole wheat toast and just a couple of bites of David's pancakes....with real maple syrup.
So it wasn't the veggie scram with grilled homefries and dry toast....but it wasn't as bad as it could have been either. So again, I will celebrate the small victories when they happen and say once again, Yay me!
After that big breakfast, I got some exercise making the dreaded Wal-Mart trip (a workout in and of itself!) that I had been putting off and took the afternoon to enjoy this beautiful town that I live in by photographing it for Sundays in My City which I shared with you here.
This week I've been feeling a bit under the weather so I haven't taken many photos. I have had a little bug that has made me feel bad all week and the weather hasn't been so good here so I've pretty much stayed inside and rested so that it would run its course. Having said that, I have still been pretty good in making good food choices and taking my vitamins but not so good at logging food. I think this week that I'm going to try a different site to track my food and exercise. I'm just not feeling My Fitness Pal. I'm thinking about Spark People or Live Strong. I will let you know how that works for me.
I have been reading your blogs this week while I've been
Thanks for sticking with me through this very hard to write post. I hope you have had a great week and that you are making progress in meeting your goals. I hope to have more photos and recipes on here this week and to be able to share with you more small victories next Thursday.
Have a great evening!
