Pick Up...Dust Yourself Off

So as I said, yesterday was a rough one. How rough? See for yourself.


Yes, you see that right, I was 809 calories in the red yesterday, according to My Fitness Pal. Why? Because I ate my feelings in the form of Red Robin. I knew I was doing it, and I knew that I was going to feel guilty for not choosing one of the healthy options they have, but I did it anyway. I was having a rough day mentally and emotionally, and I did it.

But today is a new day. And I had a healthy eating plan, culminating in Greek stuffed peppers - orzo, feta, chickpeas. Delicious, right?

So pretty!
 Negative. Too much oregano and too much red wine vinegar combined to make me feel like I was licking a cologne bottle not that I've ever done that. Ick. So scrap that and we're having pita pizzas. An old Weight Watchers standby, but it got the job done. And I'm under calories for today, so I'm happy with it. Although I'm starting to feel like I'm in a funk about traditional "healthy" food. I need to find something amazingly delicious and decadent feeling, but that will still allow me to stay on track. 

Any suggestions? I'm a fan of SkinnyTaste - I need to check and see what Gina has. But does anyone have any other recommendations?


  1. I love Skinnytaste too! I really like Ellie Krieger, who is on the food network. She has a cookbook that is comfort food made healthy and it's really good! I also bought a few other cookbooks with healthier recipes that include calorie counts. I'll send you a few links to the cookbooks!

  2. I have made a few of Ellie's recipes too. Chicken and brie over spinach (if it has brie, I'm in!) and Salmon Florentine that was published in Self magazine. Love them both! Please send the links over - I'm always looking for new recipes to try!
