Mondays Are Better When You Are Off

Hey everyone!!!!! Happy Monday! I am happy cause I am off until Wednesday wooohoooooo

Fell off the Wagon...
This weekend was not my best thus far. I was home for most of it which meant a lot of boredom and mindless eating. I learned a few things...I don't mind spending 36 bucks on takeout just for me, if it means I can have 4 Slices of Thin Crust Pizza with Chicken Strips and Cinnapie (not pictured). I ended up tossing most of it away. I also learned that just because Ice Cream is on sale for 2.99 does not mean that I have to buy it. The calories are still the same even when it's on sale. And I learned that the pounds can creep up in a blink of an eye or a chew of a mouth lol.

But all was not lost...I did manage to have healthy breakfasts AND I even tried Brussel Sprouts!

First I tossed them in EVOO, Salt, and Garlic and then roasted them for about 40 minutes I had them with my left over pasta. Next time I will not use Garlic, add more salt and cook for 30 minutes. They were good but I know, they can be better...Do you have any Brussel Sprout recipes????

Today is a new day, new week, and almost a new season and I am treating it as a fresh start. I am going to set some goals..

1) Eat no more than 1500 Calories a day

2) Will not keep food in the house that I know I have no willpower over

3) I will stick to my Protein Days!

4) I will workout and try to burn 300-500 calories a day. BUT I will listen to my body!

5) No eating 2 hrs before bed time

6) I will love myself and stay positive

Today has been good, so far I had 1/2 a Banana before my workout. I did EA Active for 40 minutes and then did Turbo Jam Cardio Party and burned a total of 752 Calories 
In 1 hr and 30 minutes!!!!! For Breakfast I had Kashi Oatmeal, with 1/2 a Banana, PB, and Slivered Almonds.

I am going to read some of my old food & workout journals to refresh on what I did in the past (when I was at my lowest) and see how I can recreate that now.

Thank you for taking this journey with me and for always ALWAYS giving me the support I need! I love my fellow bloggies!!!!!
