Continuing on the downward (upward?) spiral & Recipe!

Bad news first: I can't stop eating. And I can't stop eating bad food! Sundays are my grocery shopping day and yesterday I did well. I bought ingredients to make Portabello Mushroom Pizza (mushroom is the dough), WW spaghetti, healthy quesadillas, & healthy breakfasts.

Items I did not buy: milk & cereal. I've known this all my life: I cannot have milk or cereal in my house. I will eat it. FAST. Also did not buy fatty snacks (cookies, ice cream, etc.).

Also, I went to the Offspring and 311 (love!) concert on Saturday. When I got there, some friends were tailgating and offered me a beer. Who am I to turn them down? I ended up having 5 that night...ugh.

I'm scared to get on the scale so I'm just not going to do it this week. I'm upping my exercise and am planning healthy meals so, hopefully (*crosses fingers*) I can drop a few lbs before I weigh in next Monday.

I put on my one pair of shorts that I own (14s) and I had muffin top! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Good news: Yesterday I decided to make a super yummy fruit salad. I had some fruit in the house that was about to go bad and bought a few types of fruit to add to it. It even has a yummy glaze on it that adds a little sweetness w/o a lot of calories.

Fruit Salad & Banana Glaze
1 banana
2 Tbsp honey
Juice from 1 lemon

Peel banana and cut into large chunks (think 1/3 chunks). Place in a shallow bowl and squeeze lemon on banana. Add honey. Mash up banana with a fork until it's a smooth, yet thick liquid. Pour into bowl before chopping fruit (I do this b/c when I chop up the apples, I throw them into the glaze immediately so they don't start to turn brown).

Salad (You can use any fruit, but this is just what I had on hand):
1 apple, chopped in chunks
2 pears, chopped in chunks
1 can of Mandarin Oranges, in light syrup, drained
1 lb. of strawberries, chopped in chunks
handful of grapes, halved

Chop up all the fruit and add to the glaze. It's yummy AND healthy.

Bad food days are over (water under the bridge) long as the good food days far outnumber. :) Fruit salad sounds delish. I have had very little if any fruits since I have been banded. (7 weeks ago) I will give yours a try!

thanks for the positivity, janice!

i would try soft fruits in your fruit salad(apples w/ skin & grape skins may not work too well w/ your band)...i can eat them for now b/c my band is wide open!
