Anxious for Spring

A ladybug in the house must mean it’s warming up outside. At least I hope that is what it means.  I think ladybugs are also considered to bring good luck.  At any rate, I’d never smash one.  This tiny creature was crawling on the foggy bathroom mirror one day this week.

So after a long period of maintaining the exact same weight forever, I am on a mission to drop a few pounds.  So I am going to track my food using My Fitness Pal.  I am not eating a 1200 calorie a day diet. I am trying to make sure I have a proper balance of nutrients.

I enjoyed the “On This Date” pictures so much from last February where I was following a meal plan and photographing my meals.  I need to incorporate more of that in my life.  I actually do have a meal plan for this week.  And I took a couple of pictures.

This is a “taco salad” I made using some Black Bean Tofu Hast over some lettuce, with chopped avocado, shredded cheese, and salsa on top.  It was good but could have used a bit of sour cream.

Tonight I made a stir fry.  This is a picture of it just going into the pan.

I have shrimp and a bag of Trader Joe’s stir fry veggies with a bit of sesame oil.  I added some Thai Peanut Sauce from a recipe I made and topped it with some chopped peanuts.  Served it over a half cup of brown rice.

I am making some chicken salad to eat for lunch tomorrow and again on Thursday.  And I am making eggplant lasagna for dinner tomorrow night and Thursday night.  On Wednesday Don has an appointment with the retina specialist at 11 so we will eat at Ruby Tuesday after that and that will mean a light dinner.  I have some grain-free waffles in the freezer that I’ll heat up for dinner.  That takes us until Friday, and I’ll decide later what I want to do that day.  I am happy to have the rest of the week planned.
