Disco Rewind

I have to say Thank You to all of you!  Thank you for not thinking that my Disco Days post yesterday was totally cringe-worthy.  Thank you for all of you nice comments, I love it!  Now if I can just put my fingers on some of those old photos of me with my Donna hair…you will all be in Disco heaven with me!  When I find the pictures, I’ll tell a few stories.  Nothing creepy or Studio 54-ish…My Disco past was actually quite boring…mostly about the music and the dancing.

It’s been a busy week and not the best week in regards to food and Weight Watchers.  Since I didn’t go to my meeting last Saturday because of the Relay for Life, I’m a little anxious about what my result might be tomorrow.  Again I’m considering opting out of a weigh-in which is my choice as a Lifetime Member.  I’ll probably cave and weigh in any way.  I truly do better when I know what I’ve done, good or bad.  We’ll see.

I have been off track but I’m trying hard to get back on track.

This I think was Tuesday’s dinner in the Big Purple Bowl.  See I know I’m off track when I don’t remember what day it came from.  This was made with the very last of my salad fixings, not much romaine but lots of celery, red and green peppers, tomatoes, home-made dressing and Morningstar Farms veggie burger.  Adding all that crunch is becoming my new favorite thing to do.  Because there was so much crunch involved, it took me 45 minutes to eat this.  Less time for snacking later!

When the apples are getting a little funky…

I call this still life…Six Apples and a Pear… While I was cutting these up, a torrential rain and wind storm came up and the curtain kept whipping around smacking me in the face.  Finally had to close the window…very weird.

We know it’s time to bring out Crock-ette!!

There’s magic inside…

Added some apple pie spice, cinnamon and Splenda.  These so good and make a wonderful dessert/treat when I need it.   Good with oatmeal too.  Mmmm…sounds like breakfast!

Dinner last night…

This was delicious, made with the last of my cooking veggies… olive oil, garlic, 2 yellow squash, 3 small red frying peppers, snow peas, veggie broth, low-fat cottage cheese and spinach.  Topped with shredded cheese and sriracha sauce.  I really do need to get to the produce market today.  With the holiday weekend coming up it will be crazy there too.  I need to get out early.

So this caps off a busy, emotional week.  It’s been a good week in spite of everything. Again thanks to everyone.  This is shaping up into a busy weekend.  I have my fingers crossed for weigh in at WW tomorrow.  Maybe if I kept my fingers crossed, I wouldn’t eat things I shouldn’t.  Hmmmm….something to consider…

Happy Friday!!

    • Thanks, Cathy! If you sign up for the Morningstar Farms e-mail update they’ll send you coupons. Of course I just tried to print mine and it wouldn’t work, but it usually does. Have a great weekend!!

  2. it has been really tough to get back on track. really tough. but I’ll see you, and your foodless crossed fingers (hahaha) tomorrow morning! I want to get back to eating healthier and feeling better before summer is in full swing! I still think we can do it!!

    your veggie dinners always look delicious.

  3. Thanks to you, I’m going to stop being lazy and make salads for lunch next week. You’ve inspired me! Tonight’s our weekly grocery shopping trip, and I’m adding the ingredients to my list right now. 🙂

    Happy Friday–and thanks again!

  4. Love what you did with your old fruit! I’ll have to remember that 😉

  5. Your salad/veg/burger/cheese bowls always look so colourful and amazingly tempting! I love the sound of the apples too; I remember you mentioning it on my blog and thinking how nice it sounded.
    I wouldn’t worry about tomorrow, especially as you were exercising when you missed the last meeting 😉
