Well its a gloomy Monday morning over here. Its gotta happen sometimes - right? I am feeling exactly like the weather. There are a lot of BAD vibes in this house lately. Hubby has been working too much OT and gets cranky about this place and well-about everything.
You have to understand that for 20 years we have always lived in our own home and now because of circumstances, we are renting this tiny place. I Keep telling him to try and appreciate what we DO have, but he's not hearin it - at all.
Last week we had a inspection done on the Short-Sale house and there is some work to do, but not that much really in comparison to other homes we looked at. So now we wait to see if the bank will extend the close date which was supposed to be the 10th - Wednesday!! Seriously don't see how that could ever happen - too soon. So we will see what happens.
Yesterday (Sunday) I made some pancakes that were so good. My sister, Lisa saw something on Pintrest and forwarded it to me and I tweaked it of course and it came out awesome.
Pumpkin-Protein-chocolate chip pancakes.
1/4 c pumpkin puree
a big tbsp of my homemade almond butter
1 scoop of MRM whey vanilla protein powder
pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla extract
*a little unsweetened coconut flakes
*handful of hersheys unsweetened chocolate chips
Mix all together and fry on med-low heat in small pan using coconut oil spray.
eat with Nauture's Hollow on top
Makes 2 large pancakes s/c= 2/1 each
I ate 1 Sunday and 1 this morning.
My lunch yesterday was 2 slices of my healthy bread with spinach and tuna with mayo and feta cheese.
The furry girls and I went for a walk. Hubby came along was in such a pissy mood - just ruined it for us.
Dinner I just ate some tequila-lime wings and broccoli and brussel sprouts. For desert I ate a cheesecake muffin with Natures Hollow on top.
So what have I learned from the past 3 years??
That even if I am in a bad mood and feel like over eating, I always seem to eat the healthy stuff. Before I would have eaten a bowl of frosted flakes or ice cream or pretty much what ever I wanted. As I look back on yesterday where I thought I did bad, I really didn't do that bad at all. Just the popcorn I shouldn't have eaten which gave me an extra carb so I had 2 carbs with lunch and usually only have 1.
For me, another thing I have learned is to always have some BFC healthy sweet-treats made and ready for me to eat. I think I will always have a bad sweet tooth and need to be prepared so I will never be tempted to eat the wrong things.
Thanks for listening to me today and have a great day.
