Rough Patch

So Yesterday was a pretty simple day for me since its a Monday and I don’t really eat much on those days thanks to Field Hockey. I did finish day 6 of insanity yesterday and can’t believe I made it a whole week and still enjoy it haha! I ended up playing 3 games of field hockey last night and got an amazing workout in. I stopped a lot of goals and even score 4 myself THANK YOU VERY MUCH lol. When you play against Division 1 BU players you have to step up your game so you don’t look like an old fougie haha. I held my own and they even gave me some compliments! Thanks young whippersnappers for making a girl feel good.

Today has been a really rough day emotionally for me on this journey and yes I know I’ve only been on it for a week now (full force) and I was hoping to see some kind of improvement here. Something even an pound of weight loss but nope I actually gained 3 lbs. Maybe its from a little muscle gain from the insanity workouts or maybe its not I don’t know but it certainly has sent me into a woe is me day today. I’ve done everything right and stayed very focus and determined to make sure I don’t cheat myself and I feel like some how I have let myself down that I have done something wrong. Like I said its been a rough day today and I know that it will get better but sometimes you just need a down day to kick yourself back into gear and push forward. I’m so thankful for my amazing support of friends who have sent me messages to let me know to keep on trucking and push through the downs. Having that support system is the best thing I could ever ask for! I love them and couldn’t get through this without them! So thank you to all my amazing friends and family for trying to make me feel better ❤

So this is a recipe I’ve had for a long time and I love it because its so simple, healthy and filling for me. A whole head of cauliflower and 30 minutes and you have yourself a tasty meal! 0 WW points mind you!

Ingredients:
1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp olive oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all spices together in a small bowl or cup.
Drizzle olive oil all over cauliflower florets and sprinkle with spice mix. Toss together and lay out on a baking sheet.
Roast spicy cauliflower for 25-30 minutes, turn halfway through cooking time.

DINNER

So for dinner was a Crock Pot Balsamic Pork Roast. Sides of Sweet Potato and Green beans and mushrooms! It came out awesome and I will certainly make it again. I need to next time thicken the broth it was in so that it can go over top to add more flavor when it was on the plate. I may add a couple more spices to it too to give it a better kick but if you aren’t one for spicy then stick to the original recipe and you will love it I just know it! 9point WW meal.

  1. Don’t beat yourself up over a gain. You will find out what works for you and what does not. It’s all a process. … A pretty aggravating process at times, but so rewarding once you start to see the results. Also, those recipes look delicious!
