It has been a good week not a great week just good. I have eaten a little better but I haven't been pigging out on junk food other than the Jack In The Box Oreo Shake oh boy that thing was great for PMS. I am such an emotional eater and sometimes it isn't till after I have eaten that I think about it. I have tried the stopping and waiting and I still do it most of the time.
I have not been exercising like I should but doing a lot more walking. I do better if I try not concentrate on the me too much and just keep busy and active. Does that make since?
I just took an Intentional Creation Assessment test and got the results. This is through Og Mandino . I had a discussion with one of their mentors and in the assessment I found out I am too judgmental of myself and want perfection from me and hold back from doing things if there is a chance I might fail or look follish. Hmmm..... Man it was right. So many times in my life I have been scared of doing something that I might not be able to do and avoided it. Time to change that thinking and progress. I think this is part of what holds me back. I work out for a while see a little progress and get a few comments of how I am looking good and then nothing for a while and I give up. This is going to be a challange for me to overcome.
This week assignment for the Etreme Makeover: Me Edition is:
Share with us a healthy recipe:
This recipe is not one I made up but one that a friend Janel made me one day for lunch when she became my mentor in fitness. The funny thing is I am not a big tuna fan but this is good I learned it is all in the kind of tuna you use.
Tropical Tuna Sandwich
1 can (6oz) Bumble Bee Tuna in water, drained.
2 Tbsp. or less of Miracle Whip Free
1 Tbsp. crushed pineapple, drained
2 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish (or not)
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 slices whole-wheat bread
In a mixing bowl, combine tuna, Miracle Whip, pineapple, relish, mustard and cinnamon; mix well.
Spread a portion of tuna mixture on 2 slicws of bread. Top with remaining slices of bread.
Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place sandwiches in the pan and cook over medium heat for about 2 or 3 minutes on each side, until the sandwiches are warm and the bread is slightly browned.
Slice tuna sandwiches in half, serve and enjoy.
Like I said I am not a big fish fan unless it is coated, fried and there is a lot of dipping sauce but this sanwich is really good. Don't judge until you try it!
Working on the thinking change and add more exercise to my day for the rest of this week.
Tonight the Biggest Loser is on so I will be watching this. Have a great night!
