Is it the cold weather? (Cold weather just makes me crave comfort food.)
Is it increased busy-ness (so many things to do!!)?
Is it the achievement of a goal, and so what's next? (I broke 200, and I'm down in the 180s, where I haven't been since I started having children. My size 16's are loose, and size 14 is probably only 1 month away.)
Is it a times-and-seasons thing? (You know, "For every thing, there is a time and a purpose under heaven...")
I'm not sure what is the reason, and maybe it's a lot of things together, but I am just so "snacky" lately. I'm counting my calories, and at the end of the day, if there's any left, I go use 'em. It used to be a challenge to see how much I could scrimp on calories. I'd be so proud that I could eat in the 2-to-3-pounds-a-week loss rate. But right now, I hardly care. I just try not to eat over my weight maintenance allowance. Is this okay? Should I just stay in this zone until the holidays are over, then hit everything hard again?
Although, I have to say, I am looking forward to Audrey's next challenge, the BIG ONE coming in the next session. My curiosity it peaked. Maybe that will give me the final push I need to get back in a more determined frame of mind.
Crustless Spinach Pizza - I don't know why, but I totally crave this every day. It's just about as easy as a sandwich, and super tasty!
2-1/2 cups chopped frozen spinach
dash of salt
1 tsp. minced garlic
3/4 to 1 oz. finely shredded parmesan (the real thing, NOT the powdery stuff in a can!)
1-1/2 to 2 oz. mozzarella cheese
1 roma tomato, chopped
Heat the spinach in the microwave. Stir in the salt and garlic. Then sprinkle on the cheeses and top with the tomatoes. Heat in the microwave until the cheeses melt. It will be hot, so you might have to let it sit for a few minutes. But I can hardly ever wait, so I eat it up hot and yummy, burning my tongue almost every time!!
