Tuesday in Review

It's not going to be a good weigh-in this week.

First, lots of food to taste at work yesterday, so I had a lot of calories I didn't need.

Second, I skipped lunch so I think my body just started holding on to everything I was eating hoping I'd feed it more later.

Third, I haven't felt well these past two days. It stormed Sunday night and again last night, and though I love sleeping through storms, it's hard to sleep through thunder that throws you out of your bed and sets off 5 or 6 car alarms. Lack of sleep = lack of feeling well.

So fourth, I haven't worked out since Monday morning. I'm really hoping for a good workout tonight if I can power through the icky feeling.

Dinner last night was great! I made a couscous loaf with some pan-seared eggplant slices, and though I enjoyed making it and it was yummy, I will never make it again. It made way too much (more than a single girl can eat), it isn't stellar enough (nutrition-wise) for all the work, and I'd like to think I can make something just as yummy much faster.
Here's the recipe in case you're interested: Couscous Loaf With Feta, Eggplant and Onion

Until the next post!

  1. Time to refocus on your nutrition!! You can do it!

  2. Don't give up - hope you feel better!

  3. The good thing is that you have managed to have some loss every week. I would really try to limit your starches if you want to see some major losses. I love the couscous too, but what about cutting out those starches for one week and seeing how you do? A lean steak with lots of brocolli, snow peas and olive oil will fill you up and not be carb heavy. A great snack to try is Greek yogurt with blueberries. Los of protein and fairly low carb. It's about being satisfied on the best, most nutritious food possible.
