I’m kind of shocked I didn’t gain, I will take a “stay”, for sure. Especially with the past week. Yesterday, I did the elliptical machine for 22 minutes. It’s the first real activity I’ve had in a week. I haven’t been eating great…I’ve been eating healthy stuff, just larger portions that I should be. I know I’m eating emotions, I’m upset about my knee and I’m stressed out. I’m eating to cope. I have looked this in the face and it will stop. I know I can do some working out, that is where I need to direct that stress now. My knee is healing, I won’t push it, but it’s time to get back to work. Reign it in. I can do it. Does anyone else hear “Eye of the Tiger”? No? Hmmm….
Last night for dinner I made Baked Coconut Shrimp.
I followed the recipe exactly, so I won’t repost it here. Whoever wrote this recipe is my hero. This will be a summer regular around these parts. Especially since I can get my hand on fresh shrimp pretty easily. I dipped them in the Spicy Apricot Sauce that I made for chicken a couple days ago. I told you that sauce would be versatile! Here’s another use! :) I’ve had a great food week!
Yesterday, I went to the farmer’s market and it’s strawberry season! I got a giant container, so I found it only fitting to have a Strawberry shortcake (my absolutely most favorite dessert) to celebrate the 1st Birthday of The Unlikely Success Story. The dessert cups I used were only 100 calories and the strawberries were so perfect they didn’t need any sugar. Perfect end to a perfect day off.
I enjoyed a terrific beach day with Kelly on Thursday.
Saturday night my husband and I enjoyed a nice evening chatting with friends under the stars.
I took care of my knee, instead of being irresponsible and pushing through it.
I cooked and shared some great food this week. :)
I didn’t get enough activity in.
I ate my emotions.
I am letting my stress level get the best of me instead of handling it in healthy ways. I stayed stressed out most of the week because of it.
Wrap it up, Tonyne
All in all, another “not so great” week. It wasn’t terrible, it could have been better, but it is what it is. Now that I’m back in the gym, even if I’m no where near running or leg presses yet, I’ll get back in the swing of things. I have faith in myself.
What are you doing this weekend? Anything fun? I am working and to top that, I’m on-call! Boo. :)
