Good morning and Happy Friday!! Gotta love a three day weekend to get to the weekend that much quicker. One of my bosses is gone today, I think the other one will only be in this morning, and I’ll be able to finally get some shit off my desk. Whoop!
I made this delicious chia pudding yesterday. I stopped by Beatrix on my way to work and picked up $2 of accessories to go on top – some toasted almonds, dried cranberries, citrus and cantaloupe – so good!
I had to run an errand for work, so no Biz and Jenn show yesterday. I got out for a bit and went to the Farmers Market – bought some tomatoes to make pasta sauce this weekend. It was such a gorgeous day.
How gorgeous are these tomatoes?
My office had a luncheon for the attorneys – they ordered way too much food. I ate half of this hummus chicken wrap and brought the rest home to put on my leftover pizza I was making for dinner.
Those kefta meatballs I made were sliced and topped my pizza. However, I can’t believe I am about to say this, but I only had ONE ounce of Trader Joe’s light mozzarella cheese – cannot wait to do a TJ run this weekend. I used Alouette cucumber dill as the base of this pizza, with 2 points of my sliced kefta, the leftovers from the wrap above – romaine, spinach, tomatoes, beets, olives and a bit of feta cheese.
I drizzled with a bit of my golden tumeric sauce, and this my friends, was an epic 10 point pizza – swoon!
My skinny pizza dough is about 6 days old and it literally gets better every day its in your fridge.
So I have been at a plateau for a long time – like the first six months. Yes, I haven’t gained all my weight back, I am maintaining a many years 34 pounds off of the 70 I originally lost, but I am just going through the motions. I think I’ve been doing WW so long that I’ve just become complacent.
But here’s the thing, without WW, I’d have already gained back those 34 pounds that I’ve managed to keep off, so I have that.
For the month of June I’ll be carb cycling. I did it several years ago and I think I lost 10 pounds in a month. I’ll still be counting points (and probably calories too because I am like that!). Who knows maybe after a week I will say F this – but I know being diabetic, having lower carb days could help control my diabetes.
So I’ll keep you posted. I’ll do daily recaps of my eats and workouts. Wish me luck!
Happy Friday friends – make it a great day and don’t eat like an asshole!
