Saying No to Nachos

Friday, January 28, 2011

They had nachos in the cafeteria today. They last time they had them was back in December. That day, the woman that works the cash register asked me if something was wrong because I had been eating so much lately. My first instinct was to tell her I was pregnant but I quickly decided against that, shrugged my shoulders, and went and ate my 5 pounds of nachos in peace at my desk. Kind of sad.

I kept it together today and opted for the salad bar. That doesn’t mean I didn’t have my low points this week. I managed to eat an entire bag of Goldfish crackers while gulping down about 4 Black and Tans on Friday. I didn’t feel too bad since I ran 5 miles on Saturday and then again on Sunday. I hit another low point on Monday though, when I shoved 4 pieces of cold pizza in my face that was sitting in the lunch room at work. Really sad.

Other than that I did really well and worked out everyday this week. I’m happy to report that the scale read 161.6 this morning. That’s a total weight loss of 6.4 pounds and the month isn’t even over yet! I have to say, having this blog to keep me accountable is really doing the trick. Counting the calories and doing the extra work at the gym really yields positive results. Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta.

I made stuffed peppers this week that were absolutely delicious and under 300 calories. Here is the recipe:

You could totally sub tofu or even beans to make it vegetarian.
