I finally did it! I made the decision to ban the ice cream from my house. From now on if we want ice cream we will have to go out to eat it. This is the only way to keep myself from binging on it right now. It's sad but I this is really what I need to do.
On Monday I started back at Bootcamp. It was a tough workout but I did it. I was so proud of myself when I was done. It was one of those workouts where I couldn't catch my breath the entire time. I'm going back tonight for another session. I wanted to go this morning but couldn't get out of bed on time. As much as I dislike exercising I do like the amount of calories I am burning during these workouts. That is what is keeping me going.
Last night I went to a Pampered Chef Party. I love Pampered Chef! I don't know if any of you are as much of a fan of it as I am. The Stoneware is awesome! The consultant made a wonderful Ham, broccoli and cheese Calzone. It was amazing. She also made a delicious cake in the microwave. Then the host made a Enchilada pizza on her pizza stone. It was such a fun night and it reminded me of my love for cooking and Pampered Chef. I actually purchased some of their spices. I can't wait to get them and make some grilled chicken. The spices sound wonderful!
I'm sure you can figure out that with all of that fattening food that I ate too much. I had way too much cake and pretty much everything else. I hadn't eaten much yesterday just because I wasn't very hungry and then when I smelled food I felt absolutely ravenous. It was horrible! I think I ate more then anyone else at the party. I really need to get my act together. I really should have eaten dinner before I went. Then I wouldn't have been as hungry when I smelled the food. It is a lot harder to resist when you are starving.
I do have another great Smoothie Recipe to share. I have had it for breakfast the last two days and I love it!
