Small wins

Sunday, March 23, 2014

So after a few days of eating not-so-well, I was kind of feeling down. I stepped on the scale this morning, expecting to see a little flux, but alas - I'd lost half a pound. Enough to reset my mood!

Then I made some awesome soup with turkey sausage and a ton of vegis. When I ran it through the calculator, it yielded 116 calories per serving! I have a hard time with serving size, that was at 8 servings but I'm pretty sure the pot will feed more than 8 bowls. I love when I can have a large serving of something with no guilt!

Next I had to go pick up a bridesmaid dress for a friend's wedding this fall. We tried on styles in January - which sucked. Any plus size gal probably knows the selection of styles on hand are limited in larger sizes. They had measured me at a 24, and I waited a while to order. I had already lost 10 pounds, so I ordered a 22 (against their advice). Well when I tried it on today, it was loose! I was able to zip the dress myself even. Kind of makes me nervous about the alterations later, but still felt great!

Lastly, went to supper with a girlfriend tonight at Perkins. I ordered off their fit menu, had whole grain blueberry pancakes with chicken-apple sausage and scrambled eggs (to which I added spinach and one slice of dry, wheat toast). It was DELICIOUS, I was full but not sickingly so, and I stayed within my range.

I also did a whopping 12 minutes on the devil-stairstepper today. Getting better at least. One day, maybe I'll lose the prefix on that one ;)

    I would love to know what and how you made your soup. When you get a chance would you mind visiting my SparkPage or SparkMailing me with a sort of recipe. Sometimes it's all about quantity!
    emoticon on the loose dress!! Try not to worry about the alterations, it'll be worth it. Think of how much you spend on trigger food or drinks and maybe set that money aside to help with the alterations.
    12 minute on devil-stairstepper is so emoticon !!!
