It's all good...good...good!

Good weigh in
I'ts nice to be back in my routine and have a positive attitude again. For some reason during the holidays I let myself get into a funk and slack on my calorie counting and workouts. I gained about 10 lbs and was back up to 157. The past few weeks I have really been keeping up with my goals and as of today's weigh in I am back down to 150.2

You can tell I'm doing pretty good because it was my birthday last week and I was really proud of myself for sticking to only one cupcake!
My fav  homemade vegan chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting! I wish I didn't spill cocoa powder on my shirt lol! 

Good Read
I was at a used bookstore with my boyfriend the other day and I found this memoir. So far I am only 44 pages in. I can already tell I am going to finish it because the author is so relatable, honest, and funny! He delves into some touchy subjects a lot of people are not willing to talk about. I don't think people realize how psychological losing weight can be. Usually I'm more of a fiction reader but lately I have been interested in memoirs about weight loss.....huh wonder why?? Lol!

Good Eats 
Today's dinner was multi-grain spaghetti with sauteed zucchini  mushroom and tempeh in garlic and basil spaghetti sauce (635 calories and 47 grams of protein). O' yeah and smothered in nutritional yeast! I put about 4 tablespoons on my pasta instead of cheese . The nutty "Cheesy" taste has grown on me to the point where I load it on. 4 tablespoons adds like 160 extra calories but its low fat and high protein. By high protein I mean like 8 grams per tablespoon!

  1. I like that idea of adding the zuchinni on top of my spaghetti. We are seriously lacking veggies over here.
