Just Say NO To Tex-Mex!

My husband called me this afternoon and informed me that we were going out on date night…. This would be day 3 of eating Tex-Mex!

Wednesday night – Casa Ole’

Thursday night – Gringo’s

Friday night – Pappasito’s

Backing up to Thursday

Started out with a banana and peanut butter – 1

**90 minutes of cardio mixing up elliptical, running, walking inclines, and the stair climber**

Frozen yogurt – 3

Zone Bar – 5

Protein Waffle W/ Strawberries – 5

Met up at Gringo’s with some family that I haven’t seen in forever!! Fajita Chicken Salad W/Salsa

Snacked on saltine crackers while watching the Biggest Loser on the dvr… smart huh?



Banana and peanut butter before heading to the gym…

**1 Hour Muscle Blast Class**

Sugar cookies upon arrival …. another smart move!  :/

Turkey chili (no beans) over spinach with salsa/cheese – 5

Protein waffle with pear – 5

Date night at Pappasito’s – ate more than my share of chips and salsa….

I was full by the time my meal was served… i ate one bite and packaged it up for tomorrow… fajita chicken salad with salsa

With all of the chips and salsa lately, I feel gross. I came across this picture from this week last year and had to compare it to now… I need to see things like this to help me remember WHY I need to do better. I don’t want to start sliding into old habits. It’s crazy that it’s still a constant battle… I wish it was easier!! :)

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    A big difference from last year. You’ll get back on track next week- and be happy that you can still enjoy some “crazy” days/weeks of eating and then start a new week. BTW- my Dad (in his 70’s) had some minor surgery a few months ago and now he’s lost his sense of smell AND all taste! That would be a great way to lose weight for the REST of your life if you couldn’t taste anything- BUT- that’s no way to live!
