Damn garlic rolls.
Despite the fact that I journaled all my food last week, much of my weekend involved leftover pizza and garlic rolls, leaving me with a case of wheat bloat and a couple extra pounds.
Turns out, a pizza and garlic roll-based diet and I don't work well together.
Yesterday I jumped back on track and started the new year off early. My new routine is to wake up, slug down a glass of Emergen-C and go for a walk. So my day begins with one glass of water down and 3 miles in.
And when I get back I down 2 more glasses of water and make sure I'm 4 glasses in by noon.
I'm also doing a better job at meal planning, making sure to have a meal or snack every 2 to 3 hours and also making sure my meals are balanced and my snacks are 100 to 200 calories.
Two days in and I already dropped a pound despite my raging PMS.
Wednesday is New Year's Day and the only thing I'm resolving is to be the best possible version of me.
And if you're in need of a New Year's Eve appetizer that's easy and kinda silly looking, here's one I made up -- Seaweed Cheese Cigars!
I used GimMe roasted seaweed snacks and Laughing Cow Light wedges. I stuck with the original flavor of the Laughing Cow cheese so as not to compete with the sesame flavor of the seaweed snacks.
It's super easy -- take two sheets of seaweed, spread half of the wedge of Laughing Cow on each sheet, roll tightly and you're done.
And as you can imagine, each cigar is quite the caloric bargain -- only 20 calories.
Enjoy your New Year's Eve and I'll see you next year! :)
