Attempt at following my own rules
I chopped the French shallots then cooked them in butter. I added some white wine and let it reduce. Added some cream, salt and pepper and let it boil. The fettuccine were ready by then so I put some in the pan, added some Reggiano Parmigiano (parmesan), stirred it and served it. I could smell the yumminess!
Then I woke up! So frustrating! Lucky for me I don’t have any cream and parmesan here because I would be eating my dream right now for breakfast loll
Just a question, do you dream about yummy food too or it’s only me?
How did I do with my 4 rules yesterday?
1- Going to bed and turn the laptop off at a reasonable time : midnight
I went to bed at 10h30 pm, turn off the laptop at 12h30 and closed my eyes at 12h45. Not what I said it should be but a great improvement for me. This morning I felt good and rested and as I got up to pack the recycling and bring it at the road (in a rush before the recycling truck gets here) I thought it was so nice outside. I decided to shuffle the patio because it snowed a lot yesterday and I was full of energy! I feel so much better today.
2-Do a work out everyday
I did the bicycle island on the Wii until my legs were shaking and did an uncoordinated step after loll. Not as long as usual but more intense and better than nothing loll
3-Track my food
I did track my food for the whole day and ended up 300 calories over my goal. But I am still down 0.1 kilo from yesterday. So maybe as someone told me I am not eating enough but my goal is set for only 1 pound a week so it is a bit confusing. More confusing than that for the time I haven’t been tracking and that I ate cookies and ice cream and not working out I was loosing everyday. The further I am in my journey the more confuse I get! I know that my week wasn’t a healthy week even if I lost one pound anyway, and it’s why I wasn’t happy with myself because of wrong food choices and lack of exercise. I am not JUST in the journey for the weight. It a health journey but of course being at a healthy weight counts but not if it means that I don’t take proper care of myself. Do I make any sense at all?
4- Only have 1 treat a day
I had a cookie. I also manage to have ONLY a spoon full of that yummy banana cream pie ice cream. After supper I decided to make bread. I usually take the bread machine but I just felt like making it myself yesterday. So my daughter made a raisin and cinnamon one and since I felt creative I made a custard and coconut one. When husband got here we all had to taste it because we could smell it in the whole house. Daughter was so happy with hers! Mine was delicious too! So I can say that I had more than treat but at least I logged everything and didn’t go into denial!
