Weighing on my mindPosted: November 8, 2011
Tuesdays are definitely love/hate for me. I hate getting up at 4:30 am, but I love teaching spin class!
I also love getting deep tissue massage every other Tuesday. While I was on the table, my mind wandered. Oddly enough (maybe because I was really hungry) I started thinking about making a strawberry protein muffin. When I got home, I got to work!
This is what I came up with- not a bad afternoon snack
(or breakfast for some people- it definitely wouldn’t fill me up though!)
3 large frozen strawberries
2 T coconut flour
1/2 T oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 T egg whites
2 T water or almond milk
1 packet french vanilla stevia, divided
1/3 c 0% plain Greek yogurt
Thaw strawberries in the microwave in a bowl and mash with a fork, so that they are the consistency of jam. Stir the rest of the ingredients except for the yogurt and use only 1/2 of the stevia packet. Pour into a small bowl and microwave for 3 minutes, or until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix the remaining stevia with the yogurt. Slice cake in half (width-wise) and spread 1/2 of the yogurt on the bottom layer. Place the remaining cake on top of the yogurt layer and spread the remaining yogurt on top.
(This was 4 WW points)
My first WW weigh-in is tomorrow afternoon. I have to be honest- I’m very nervous! I have been pretty much “perfect” all week and have followed the program to a “T.” I have not mindlessly munched and have documented all of my foods (except for a few veggies- but they are zero points). I used 15 of my weekly points, and none of my activity points (I’d rather just not use them). So, we’ll see.
If I have a loss, I will be super happy- and super motivated to keep going. Losing weight is just something that is really hard for me, due to a number of different things. I’m really hopeful that this new journey I am on will work for me!
If I don’t have a loss, I’ll be honest- I’ll be crushed. I know that I should just keep going, but I have to say- I’ll be extremely frustrated. I really don’t think there is anything that I could have done better. So, we’ll see…
Hoping for the best!
