Yesterday marks 100 days before the end of the year and I am joining Steve’s Hot 100 challenge for the end of the year. I’ve realized in the past week or so that I have had too many licks and tastes of things I am making, so I need to be more mindful. So what are my goals?
- Lose 10 pounds. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Yet I haven’t lost a pound since I started this blog two years ago.
- Portion control – I need to bring my scale out again – I think my 1 cup servings of pasta have gotten a bit big lately.
- More fruits and veggies! Seriously been slacking on this one lately.
- Strength train at least 3 times a week. I think I do too much cardio and not enough strength training.
Thanks Steve for putting this together again this year!
Breakfast was my spicy oats – topped with egg whites, 2 slices of really well done bacon (I actually like it almost burnt!) and swiss cheese.
I went to the gym and you would have thought I hadn’t worked out in a year! Why is it that just a few days away from working out and it’s almost like starting from scratch? The bikes were taken so I did 40 minutes on the elliptical.
Lunch was my cauliflower mac n cheese – but I subbed in broccoli for the cauliflower. With a McDonald’s side salad:
I made twice baked potatoes on the side – none of those pictures turned out, but I used this cheese from Whole Foods – did you know you can just ask them to try any cheese?
And thanks to Beth, I have a new screen saver at work!
Thanks to everyone who voted for me for the Foodbuzz Food Blog Challenge – fingers crossed I make it to the next round! 😀
Happy Friday – hopefully I have party pizza Friday tonight 😀
