The week in review

If you want a visual image of me blogging, here you go.  Laptop + latte = heaven.

It’s been a mixed week.  I’ve observed a correlation between my mood and the weather.  When it’s nice outside and I can go for a walk, I can clear my head and I feel physically and emotionally better.  When the weather is rainy or dark, I find it hard to get motivated, I am more prone to headaches, and I’m more irritable.  This is making me dread winter!  I’ve yet to decide if joining a gym and walking on a treadmill indoors will provide me with enough of the same benefits to justify the cost.  My Zumba instructor is considering adding a toning class, so that’s another option.  Basically I need to find ways to keep moving and not let the weather be an excuse to skip my workouts.

This week’s dinners included a rare vegetarian meal.  It’s one of the few my husband will eat without complaining about the lack of meat protein.  It’s spaghetti squash with vegetables & mozzarella, based on this recipe.  But in my version I reduce the oil from 2 tbsp to 2 tsp, and I use FF mozzarella.  It makes 4 huge portions at 6 PP+ each.

I skipped my weigh-in on Monday, since my kids were off school for Columbus Day and my home scale had my up 4lbs due to large doses of headache & cold medicines over the weekend.  Deja-vu, anyone? Now that the meds are out of my system, the scale is dropping again.  I am hopeful for a decent 2-week loss next Monday.

    Try the Meatless Meatballs from Trader Joe’s with that spaghetti squash. They are so good that Al will think he’s eating meat.
