I’m not going to lie. I thought I did fairly well this weekend. I didn’t eat desserts at 2 of the 3 Thanksgiving meals. I didn’t snack. I had 2 glasses of wine all weekend.
The scale told me today that I really did indulge too much. I guess I could lie to myself, but the scale won’t lie to me.
I honestly don’t know where I went wrong. But I was pretty upset today. Luckily, I didn’t reach for a cookie. I ate healthy.
Breakfast was some pumpkin oats (which, were really to die for):
- 1/4c oats
- 1/4c egg whites
- 1/4c pumpkin
- 1tbsp chia seeds
- 1tsp pumpkin pie spice
I mixed them all up & cooked them in the microwave. While it was still hot I added 1tbsp natural PB. It tasted a lot better than it looked.
Lunch was a smoothie.
- 1/2 small frozen banana
- 1/2c frozen strawberries
- unsweetened almond breeze
- chocolate Amazing Grass
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
