Spaghetti squash rocks... and the rest of my day!
Monday, November 14, 2011
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!
