My coworker has been eating salads, so we've been splitting an avocado for 3 days this week :)Skipped my 290 cal bagel and cream cheese for this 290 cal spinach, feta, and egg white wrap. Partly because it's been a solid, consistent week, but mostly because if I eat another bagel with cream cheese this week, I'm gonna scream!!! Lol still on track 👍Proud of myself! Since I didn't do a slow cooker recipe today, I was really stressed about getting home from work, cooking a healthy dinner, and fitting in a workout. Decided on a ~12 min. Sparkpeople video, and I was able to burn calories and take a shower while my salmon, asparagus, and roasted potato dinner cooked!Salmon, asparagus, and roasted potatoes.Morning snack: cara cara orange and 1 oz. almondsArriving on the 20th!My fav place to shop regardless of size.

I swear these aren't paid promos :') - I'm just so appreciative of their size selections and model shapes & sizes. Even if you're not interested in the clothes or the prices are too high, it's a GREAT confidence boost to browse the pics. Office snacks! If anyone brings in something tempting for the group to share, I usually grab a piece of fruit instead so I can still munch on something while we chat.Really happy with my numbers today!Didn't get my 10K steps, but still a great day.Went a few hundred calories over yesterday, but today I stayed in the low-range of my goals, and got plenty of exercise! 1 step back, 2 steps forward!

Vegan pono chili with side salad from Umeke Market with my reusable to-go container and utensils.Yum! Almost forgot to take a picture before drinking it all.

Wasn't sure how it all would taste, but turned out great!Played some lawn games and picnicked today for sunset. Ate a little too much, but it was all fruits and veggies :)It's been a while since I have felt comfortable in my trusty pencil skirt, even ignoring that it's been too cold to wear anything but pants. Almost back to onderland. Slow and steady, but still a reminder not to lapse again in the future, cause this is hard work!Prepped a breakfast scramble the week! Ground turkey, onion, garlic, eggs, red bell pepper, spinach, and spices!#BeforeAndAfter small difference, but sorta there. Starting weight was 221 on December 27, but I didnt take any pictures then.My go-to breakfast place was out of their tofu scramble, so I scrambled over to Subway for this 6-inch egg and cheese with mayo, spinach, tomatoes, and onions for 520 cals.

Hoping it heals quickly, as I'm supposed to play 2 league matches next weekend and walking to work is my main mode of transportation. Here's to the bus this week, and thanks to my lovely bf for doting on me today while I stick to the R.I.C.E plan... rest, ice, compression, and elevation. :/ On a happier note, here's a great pic from ocean kayaking for 4 hours yesterday.Aloooooha!
