Positive Spin

I decided to take a couple more days to regroup and think about everything.  After reading Tina’s post this morning about having a positive attitude, and “fake it until you make it”  I realized that it’s something I need to give a try.  My life is fabulous, I have an amazing family, and a fantastic fiancé (that feels so weird to type, and even weirder to say, after 4 and ½ years of calling him my boyfriend it feels weird calling Andrew anything else), and such a great group of friends.   So what if I skipped some meals last week, like so many of you said in the comments, it’s okay to mess up, as long as you realize it and move on.  I beat myself up and you guys helped me move past it.
Yesterday  Rose left a comment and invited me to email her to chat more about everything.  After just a couple emails back and forth I felt better.  She gave me such obvious advice I felt stupid for not thinking of it on my own.  It’s still amazes me that the blogging community is so supportive, I get comments that make me smile, and make me think.  Rose did not have to offer to talk to me through email but she did, and put a lot of things into perspective for me.  So thank you Rose for all your help yesterday and this morning!
I finally restocked my fridge and pantry, also thanks to Rose.  I won her contest a little over a month ago and she sent me $50 dollars in gift cards to Shop Rite.  I bought so much fresh produce and other essentials and wound up only spending $17 of my own money!!

For breakfast today I had a vanilla Chobani with a crushed up Luna bar.  I am going to try to refrain from eating to many bars for now, because I’m eating them way to much.  But I have to say this combo was fantastic, like a cookies and cream Ice cream cup.  Yum.

Here’s the bar all crumbled in:

For lunch I had an easy but favorite meal.  I was looking for my Arnold’s sandwich thins last night at the store, but they didn’t have any instead I found Pepperidge Farms “Deli Flats”  pretty much the same thing, and dare I say I liked them a little better?  I’ll need to do a side by side comparison in the future.  I had an open faced pb sandwich with apple slices on top.  This might taste better to me then a banana and pb sandwich.

Around 3 my tummy started to growl so I had a peach.  My first one of the season!  It wasn’t quite ripe enough yet but it definitely was delicious!

I came home from work and got changed to go out to dinner with my family and Andrew.  My sister graduated yesterday!!!!  I’m so happy and excited for her, and I definitely shed a few tears at the graduation yesterday, I’m so proud of my little sister!  Before I left I just had to break out the pickles I bought yesterday.  They’re Baaaack!

My mom wanted us all to go out to dinner and I offered to pay since my parents have taken us out so much lately.  We decided to hit up Applebees.  I got the Fiesta Lime Chicken but apparently I had a little trouble reading the menu.  It said:

Grilled chicken drizzled with zesty lime sauce, topped with Mexi-ranch and Jack-cheddar, and served with crisp tortilla strips, seasoned rice, and pico de gallo.

For some reason I completely didn’t see the Mexi-Ranch in the description and thought it was just going to have fresh squeezed lime juice on it.  It tasted pretty good, although I am not at all a fan of ranch dressing of any kind.  This totally skewed what I would have estimated the calorie count at.  I ate just a few of the tortilla strips, ate about 1/2 the chicken and 1/2 the rice.  It was tasty but definitely something I would completely modify if I got again, sub in some steamed broccoli for the rice, and tell them to leave off the mexi-ranch and cheese.

Thanks again for all the support these past few weeks!  I hope you all have a fabulous night!
