Spaghetti squash rocks... and the rest of my day!

Monday, November 14, 2011

Happy Monday!

The day was slow, but the evening has been filled with successes. After getting off work, I went to the grocery store and stocked up on healthy foods. One day, I will be able to switch to 'clean' eating, but for now, I stick to low fat/calorie foods. I bought my first spaghetti squash today, came home and goggled the appropriate way to cook it. So simple and so yummy! I ended up microwaving it, adding a little olive oil, Italian bread crumbs and parmesean cheese. Holy WOW! I already have more packed for lunch tomorrow! What a great alternative and super good for you! Now, I'm questioning if I can buy more and freeze it, so I have it as an option year round!

I noticed today that I'm definitely not staying hydrated. I was doing good for so long, and then 8 glasses of water a day turned into no glasses of water a day. I noticed today that at 2pm I hadn't used the bathroom at all since I had woke up. :-/ I can only imagine not only how bad this is for me, but that it's holding me back in weight loss. Soo.. I now have my nalgene bottle filled with water, lemons and limes in the fridge ready for work tomorrow. I am going cold turkey on diet pepsi! We'll see how that goes.

Joe also came home tonight from hunting, which has a big effect on my mood. I didn't sleep well without him, and I'm so happy he's home!

I also decided today that I wanted to start blogging more. I know I'm not that exciting, but I feel like it's somewhere that I can get everything out, and no one will judge me. Hopefully tomorrow runs as smooth as today!
