Weekend was BUSY! Along with everything else, my Sunday Food Prep was completed, and this week's proteins include crockpot-shredded chicken, grilled beef (london broil), and ground beef (lean). Veggies: spaghetti squash, snow peas, tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, zucchini & yellow squash. Fruits: watermelon, apples, bananas, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries (though those disappeared with my middle-child shortly after my arrival home, lol). Grains: A batch of brown rice mixed with tomatoes, black beans and Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle provided last night's carb, along with some fab leftovers. Dinner last night also included steamed zucchini/yellow squash, and terrific oven baked chicken doused in chopped green chilies. Yum! I also got my bread baked, and tried out a recipe for 100 calorie cupcakes. I'll get that posted asap, because the cupcakes were awesome! Frosting was "meh", but the cupcakes were very good.

Food today is all on track, though I'll have to skip my second snack (it'll actually be my dinner). I've got physical therapy followed by Tab's full-body-conditioning class. I've also got my knee doctor appt tomorrow.

I'm wigging out a bit over the lack of activity. I have my class tonight after therapy, but that will probably just be upper body for me :-(   I'd really love to do yoga in the morning, but will see how it goes at therapy. I have to keep fighting myself to NOT drop my calories. I floated dangerously low last week, so this week have to make a concerted effort to stay above 1200, and closer to 1400/day. The answer to inactivity is not to starve myself. Yeesh.  You'd think I wouldn't struggle with that mindset after all this time, but there it is.
