A bad weekend and getting back on track

Can I have a redo for this past 3 day weekend?

To say that it has been stressful and emotionally draining would be an understatement. Not how I wanted this weekend to work out at all. Especially with the fact that this feeling has now carried over to today. Our two year anniversary of all days. And just to top it off...because of someone crossing a line that should have never been crossed, I decided to take out my frustrations. Mine just happened to be about pointless stuff that wasn't a big deal. Go me.

Then there was the eating. It wasn't pretty. I knew I was going to splurge with The Melting Pot, but the splurging didn't stop there. Sunday was awful. I didn't eat in the morning or afternoon. When I finally did eat I went straight for the greasy food. Can we say stress eater? Yeah.

Yesterday was a better day on the food front, but not perfect. I still went over my points and I am feeling it today. In fact, I just pulled my lazy little butt out of bed. Now I have to find a way to salvage this day and fill it back up with the joy that I felt two years ago when I married Nate.

So now...to come up with a meal plan that will get me back on track, but also be enjoyable for a nice dinner.

To end this on a happier note...what are some of your favorite recipes?


  1. Aww, sorry to hear about your bad weekend. Best thing to do is just pick your chin up and start new! Monday was our two year anniversary also! The blog post in my reader just before yours was this one for lemon chicken. It looks amazing. And healthy too. Made with olive oil and baked. I might give it a try tomorrow :)


    Hope you feel better!

  2. I'm about to start meal-planning again as well. I did it last year and loved it ... I don't know why I quit! I love anything I can make in a crock pot. Definitely keeps me from getting home, feeling lazy and ordering a pizza.

  3. Last night I made this. I added one chicken breast, curry powder, garam masala, and some ground red pepper. It was delish!
