I go back to work tomorrow after an idyllic long weekend at home. Today I have re-committed to shedding another 20 pounds this year. Then I will have reached my stretch goal!
I am happily back on plan following the intermittent holiday treats. I must say I am very pleased that I have maintained my weight even with the off plan days. I am looking forward to jump starting the shedding phase again so I plan to go heavy on the lean proteins and fresh veges for the upcoming week. To help that along, I am roasting a turkey, even as I type. This will give us lots of lean protein with minimal fuss over the week. I love cooking a turkey. Tonight we will eat turkey and roasted winter veges. Tomorrow night will be leftover turkey and salad. Tuesday will be leftover turkey stir fry with veges. Wednesday will be leftover turkey in an egg white omelet. The next weekend I will make a pot of turkey and bean soup to keep us going the following week! Lots of yummy healthy meals with very little fuss!
Yesterday I went to the White House/Black Market store and bought a darling pair of jeans (size 8 thank you) that are embellished with tons of crystals over the front pockets. They are super fun, fit like a glove and will be fun to wear as soon as they are hemmed!
Desire, dedication and discipline are working like a charm! Renewed for 2010!
