Frustrated doesn't even begin to describe how I am feeling this morning. I am frustrated with myself. Yea, I did eat Chinese food on Sunday and I know that causes a gain but that was 3 days ago. I'm also not really being honest with myself. I'm snacking too much on Toll House Italian Herb Flat Crisps and Philidelphia Cream Cheese Honey Pecan. I know that's the culprit. I know I'm not paying attention to the serving sizes and I'm just diving in. A binge? Perhaps. I eat and I don't think about it and next thing you know practically the whole bag is gone and all the cream cheese.
So yea, I am getting rid of that stuff today. I can't have it in the house at all apparently.
And the scale shows it this morning. I'm up 2.8.
So, not much to do from here but to move on and try to do better. I'm aggravated but all directed at myself.
I'm always so jealous of Anna's beautiful and scenic walks! This is what I have to work with when I am on my street. These were taken this morning.

I decided to make a Pumpkin Spice Protein shake this morning and it came out great!
I modified it a wee bit but originally I got it from Katie's Runs for Cookies Recipes blog and this is what I did:
Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake
1/4 cup of canned pumpkin
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp french vanilla Torani syrup
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
10 ice cubes
Last Saturday before tennis, I got Chris to take a pic of me to commemorate the fact that I actually had to wear a jacket to tennis but then I remembered that I had taken a previous pic in the same jacket several months before. After some digging through my pictures I finally found it.
Y'all know how much I've been frustrated with the scale and the lack of movement lately. (for the last year!) but I have to say when I saw the comparison I was SHOCKED. I don't feel that much different than the first pic and honestly I still see myself that way (and when I was even heavier than that also). But let this be a lesson to everyone (myself included) that even though the scale isn't moving, you are still making progress.
The pic on the left, that exact day (March 26, 2014) I weighed 189.2. Saturday morning (October 4, 2014 - and the pic on the right), I weighed in at 187.6.
