Tonight we went out and celebrated my moms birthday! A lot of laughs were had anddddd so was a lot of food🙈
But you see, here’s the thing...
Consistency is key on this journey and enjoying some foods you don’t eat on a regular basis is totally OKAY!
I won’t even try to make you think I’m perfect 24/7 because that is the farthest thing from the truth.
I ate so much food tonight that I had pains in my stomach (watch my stories to see what I ate).
Do I regret it? Absolutely not.
I enjoyed it and I’m moving on✌️
It Mexi-Nite over here! I like to have one 'cheat day'/ 'cheat meal' a week, and that's where I use most of my weeklies. Well, I went to a bday party today, so today was a cheat day. 🤷🏻♀️ Anyway, I usually do Saturday bc that's my weigh-in day and I can kind of gauge my week by how much I want to splurge. So tonight's dinner was 13 SP, but oh so worth it. I contemplated eating out tonight- but after the party, I figured nothing I got out would be any less in points while feeling like a splurge than what I could make at home. So here it is! Leftover baked chicken fajitas (1), 2x La Tortilla Corn Tortillas (4), 1/4c Red. fat cheese (3), & Greek yogurt (0). On the side, homemade black beans (0), with 1 serving tortilla chips (4), & 4 tbs Trader Joe's Queso (1). This was so yummy, so filling, and totally hit my craving.
One of my most favorite things to get at Trader Joe’s is the lobster ravs. They’re like eating at an Italian restaurant and you can have them with marinara, vodka or Alfredo sauces. 9sp for half the package with 2sp of Classico light Alfredo and a side of 🥦 with Everything seasoning.
Convention workouts have been looking a lot like long morning walks to coffee while exploring a new city! ☕️ This morning I chatted with the barista who said things were extra slow and offered to make me a specialty drink. It was delicious and I quickly realized it was FULL of caffeine, which I've been avoiding for weeks. I cut caffeine after realizing habit made me feel:
At first I was worried about eliminating coffee because I love it, so I went to decaf (<25g of caffeine) and now am on an every other day rotation.
☕️ After today's coffee I felt totally fine probably because I'm away from home and my office, experiencing less stressful triggers. Moral of my story, if you're feeling off or not like yourself it might be worth it to take a look at your food! Even the things we love and see as healthy might be making us feel icky!

This week's @weightwatchers meeting was all about #mealplanning . This is my meal plan for the week. For me, I meal plan when I make my grocery list. And if you swipe, you will see the other thing I do, I look to see what I have in my freezer or fridge that needs to be used and meal plan around it in an attempt to cut down on waste and save money.
Blogger recipes on the menu this week:
@laalooshrecipes Stuffed Cabbage Soup
Spaghetti Squash with @thedailydoseofpepper marinara from the freezer

Hi guys 👋 I’m back after a VERY rough few days.
I’d like to think I’m pretty honest about my bouts of anxiety/depression because I know others don’t express it and they feel alone. So I’m not embarrassed by saying sometimes I struggle. What I WAS embarrassed by is my own self sabotage, on top of the other issues.
A personal issue from last month really set it off. Something I wanted SO BAD for SO LONG was just not going to happen, at least not yet. I’m starting physical therapy on Monday for my back but in the meantime, I haven’t seen the gym in WEEKS, which is frustrating. And I’ll be honest. I’ve been drinking. A lot. Several glasses of wine every day after work and more on the weekends. Thinking it may help my mood. But it hasn’t. It’s only taken me more off course.
I don’t believe I have a problem, but it is something I need to keep in check. Alcohol is a literal depressant. Throwing it in the mix of everything was not the best idea. So for now and the foreseeable future, no alcohol. None. Wine, beer, nothing.
And I’ll be checking in every day. I can let what happened last month destroy me or I can grow from it and work on myself. Ultimately, it’s my choice. And I’ll have no one else to blame but myself if I choose wrong.
