This morning I had a delicious cup of coffee–courtesy of Lori over at Finding Radiance! Hand-roasted by Lori, if you can believe it. And it came in a beautiful shiny copper bag with a personalized label–so professional! Thank you so much, Lori. It was really great. And I thought all night about what I wanted to have for breakfast with my new coffee, and I decided I would try Lori’s protein pancakes–double yumm!! That was the first time I tried her recipe, and it was great. The ingredients are similar to the Hungry Girl blueberry pancakes that I like so much, but Lori’s recipe is SO much easier. I topped them with some sliced fresh strawberries. Next I will try Lori’s blueberry sauce. Sorry, I ate the pancakes before I remembered to take a picture of them. But here is a picture of the coffee!
Unfortunately, my eating has been a little over the top today. I kept eating when I was full, and that really drives me nuts. But I’ll just pick right up where I left off. Actually, I just did the math, and I’ve only eaten about 1750 calories today. I’m going to have broccoli for dinner, and maybe a little yogurt and strawberries, and call it a night! I think I’m worried about eating too much on my vacation that is coming up (so I eat too much because I am worried about eating too much???)
I did get to go to the gym today, and really pushed myself on the weights, and got in a good swim too. I don’t think I’ll get too many more swims this year. I’m not so crazy about swimming that I will do it in the cold. But it will be fun to have different activities for different seasons. I am already enjoying running/walking with the doggies. Now if it would just rain a little bit to make it less dusty.
I am thinking that I will just set my goal to maintain this current weight through the end of my vacation, and that will be a victory in itself. Starting with my brother’s visit last week, and until I come home from my friend’s on the 24th, October is pretty much shot. Fortunately the people around me are getting used to the way I like to eat, so I am pretty good for breakfast and lunch. And if I can just control myself at dinner (and dessert/snacking) I will be good to go. At this point in my journey, it is never the ‘fault’ of the people around me. It is always my own decision to overeat.
I’m off to work tomorrow, so I’m afraid I’ll be pretty much absent for a couple of weeks. I’ll probably be able to check in and comment on your blogs once in a while. Be good and eat well while I am gone!
