I had a really bad weekend in the eating department. I was really hard on myself about it. I'm a little obsessed with My Fitness Pal and I was embarrassed about every single item I logged. But for some crazy reason I couldn't stop eating. I think I just needed to do all that pigging out to get it out of my system. Sunday we ordered pizza and I over indulged knowing Monday it was back to the 1200 calorie + exercise lifestyle.
Today on the dinner menu was beef fajitas. I had to make it slim and trim, but still delicious.
So this is what I did....
I filled an 80 calorie tortilla with 1/8th of a cup of re-fried beans. I like my fajitas light on the meat anyway so 3 little slivers of beef was perfect for me. I topped the tortillas with tons of sauted onions and bell peppers and salsa too. I topped the whole fajita with a few sprinkles of cheese before I devoured two fajitas. Typically I would have had sour cream and guacamole and a few chips too, but I'm paying for a rough weekend and I have the food diary to prove it.
I had a goal in December of 2011. My goal was to lose 10 pounds. I did that last year. I did it slowly, but comfortably and I lost the weight and then decided I wanted to lose 5 more pounds because I new I could. Between packing up our Texas home, traveling here and living in our new environment I have gained about 4 pounds back.
I now want to lose 9 pounds to be at my new goal weight. I think I can tackle the 4 pounds, but the last 5 may be tough. I have to do this. I want to do this for myself. I don't feel like I need to impress anyone, but I know what my body is capable of and I know I would feel great at my goal weight!
I do love to cook and eat, so my motto is everything in moderation. If you have any great low calorie meals you love please share with me!
