Struggle continues

I might need someone to search me out when I don't blog. This is usually an indication that things are not going well. I continue to struggle with finding my balance but I am a fighter and I refuse to let this win. Here are a few pictures of some of the "better" thing I ate. I had a delicious yogurt and fruit one day for a snack.
It was so nice on Thursday that I ate outside on the back patio. I had a pear and swiss cheese salad and a side salad. I had never really had a fruit sandwich before but it was quite good. Pear, mustard and swiss cheese.

After my strength training and cardio I ran to trader joes. It was almost 5 before I headed home so I snack on this bar on my way. I didn't want to be starving when I arrived home. I nice delicious little snack.

Dinner Thursday night was a delicious tofu stir fry over brown rice. Quite tasty. After this meal is when things went bad and I have struggle for two days now.

I wanted to make sure I shared this sandwich that I had yesterday. I had it in my mind that I was not going to like it but yet again I was So surprised. I loved it and would have it again. I don't have the recipe in front of me but it had chopped up garbanzo beans, red pepper, green onion, celery, lime juice and Old Bay seasoning. I bought a whole wheat roll and empty out the the bread and left the shell. (less bread that way and more room for the filling) I have to remember this one because I really enjoyed it. I had some difficult before this meal because my husband adnd dod I decided to do the grocery shopping. We didn't get home until 1:30 and I was starving. While preparing this meal I snacked on guiltless corn chips and hummus. (not a bad choice but it is extra calories non the less)

We went to my son's last track meet and came home and yet again I was starving. While preparing this meal I started snacking, peanuts, almonds and TLC crackers. I didn't care for this diner. It was zucchini fritters on top of lettuce with dressing. I don't know if I should have added more flour or what because they were still mushy inside. Next time I will pull out the cauliflower fritters I have in the freezer.
So here it is Saturday morning and my weight is up to 150.5 so I am ready to get back on track. I strength trained early this morning (7:00) and did 30 minutes of the elliptical. I brought to protein muffins I had in the freezer for breakfast. I have all my meals planned for the day. My goal is to do no snacking just meals. I know I can get my weight back quickly if I stick to it.
I am excited to try two new meals today and will share them with you.
Does anyone want to hunt me down when I am not blogging? I can tell you I am mostly like struggling if I am not blogging! Thank you so much for you support! Here is to a new great day!

Ok, Kathi! I'll be your "stay on track" stalker!!! I promise to stalk your blog when I see you haven't posted;)

Yummy eats and I know you'll be back to where you want to be. You have worked long and hard; this bout of snacking is just a blip on the radar screen :]

btw, those dark chocolate covered almonds are on my 'NEVER BUY AGAIN' list! Toooooo tempting *sigh* but oh so good !
