As much as I'm an advocate for planning ahead, stuff happens. Yesterday was a TERRIBLE day for many-a-reason. I had too much on my figurative plate and was trying not to put too much on my literal one. I nearly broke in to tears when I found out we forgot to turn the crock pot on, and that meant dinner wouldn't be done until 10 pm. 'Lets order a pizza!' I blurted. My always loving husband said, 'What about Taco Bell? They have some better selections then pizza, but I'll leave that decision up to you.' So with a little encouragement from the hubs, I chose a couple things off the Taco Bell Diet menu. Like their website says, I ate better. Lets face it, not the best- but given the circumstances, I ate better than a pizza, and for that I'm proud of myself.
Another reason I'm pleased with myself today is because I hopped on the scale this morning to see a loss of 4 pounds! I am very happy about that! So that's 4 pounds down, 93 to go. I try not to look at the big picture too often, need to set mini goals. Lets do a lil' goal right now. To get down to pre-preggers weight. I'm only 37 pounds away from that. Ah, now doesn't that sound not as overwhelming???
Here's my discovery of the day: Nutella. I've heard of stuff, had never tried it. Read about it recently in one of my cheapie magazine finds, and decided to give it a shot. Now there's a lot of debate as to whether or not Nutella is a healthy snack. I personally haven't done any scientific studies or anything, but I will tell you one thing - it's delicious. Put the serving size amount on a piece of whole wheat bread, or top some fruit and I'm in snack heaven. It's actually very similar to peanut butter. Only tastier. It's made with hazelnuts and provides some proteins. So in the 'battle of the spreads' its team Nutella for me!
