Monday, Monday…can’t trust that day…
Oops…Pardon me while I lapse into a Mamas and the Papas moment! We had a wonderful Father’s Day, at least I think we did, you’d have to ask Ralph. I think he’d agree. I realized however that it was almost devoid of photos. 😦
I got up and made breakfast for us. Simple…Egg sandwiches, but Ralph always enjoys them and that was the point, right? Here’s mine…
Topped with sriracha sauce. Yum… I just found a Food Network salad recipe that uses sriracha and from my calculations, I think it will be 0 Points on Weight Watchers. I’m going to give it a try this week.
My wonderful sister, Ele cooked Ralph his favorite meal for Father’s Day…Thanksgiving in June! Of course, I only took picture of my own meal, but she made turkey breast, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn and mashed potatoes. She even made biscuits. Ralph was So happy. Especially because he got custody of the leftovers!
My dinner looked like this…
Some of the Huge salad I made to add to the festivities. I cooked up 2 Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie burgers to chop up and add. With a bottled balsamic vinaigrette, it was pretty darned good.
Of course no celebration for us seems to be able to end without a trip for ice cream.
My new favorite…black raspberry…way to big and way too much and I sure didn’t need the cone too, could have had it in a cup. Regardless, it was a splurge and it will not continue!
This leads me to why I titled this post “The Week Ahead.” I didn’t have a chance to share my results from Weight Watchers on Saturday. I gained 2 and 1/2 pounds. Not good, Norman! In spite of writing everything down…and I mean everything…good or bad…it got written down, I know I was off track and a little out of control. I’ve made an important decision. I can’t have peanut butter in the house, at least not regular peanut butter. I don’t have a problem with almond butter or sunflower butter, but if there’s a jar of regular peanut butter in the house…it’s the jar, the spoon and Me! That has to stop and I think it has to go the way of all chips…it just can’t be around on a regular basis. I’ll rely on the other nut butters because I don’t find myself having the problem of mindless eating from the jar.
That said, I’m starting myself off for a good week. I need to add some more exercise into the week as well…that will help. But I have to get on track and focus on what I’m doing in ALL areas. I think I’m going to try to get back to meditation. That helped me focus before and it’s easy enough to do…I have what I need…I just have to Do it!
I’m shooting for being the perfect Weight Watchers example this week. We’ll see where that gets me. Having you all behind me is a big help and having a place to talk about it helps also. I know I can Do this!
Happy Monday!! Eat a Carrot!! 😉
