Weigh Up - oops

Well I fell off the wagon for a week or so.  Not tracking, not working out.  I went to my WW meeting this past Monday and was up three pounds.  I knew I was going to be up and was actually thrilled that it wasn't the six pounds I'd already lost.  I've since been tracking my food and drinking all my water and trying some new recipes.  I realized today that I really have to plan ahead as far as meals go.  I wait too long to think about what's going to be for lunch or supper and then it's upon me, I'm starving, and I make poor decisions.  I'm going to work on planning ahead and also beginning preparing my meals before I'm actually hungry.

On Tuesday, a friend emailed me a burger recipe from Hungry Girl.  It was called Avocado Aficionado.  The picture looked so good and the only thing I had to run out to buy was the avocado so I had it that night.  I replaced the Boca vegan patty with a Jennie O turkey patty.  It was delicious!  So delicious that I had it the next night for supper again.  I love avocado so I like having another way to enjoy it other than making a big guacamole recipe and diving in.  Today for lunch I made a wrap using Mountain Bread flatbread.  So good.  Extremely thin and just 72 calories for one.  I spread half of a Laughing Cow wedge in the middle, then layered half a Gardenburger patty sliced, tomato, red onion, and avocado and rolled it up.  Again, delicious!  I love having two more things that I can add into my meals for variety.  It looked so colorful and pretty on the cutting board, I took a picture.

Next WW meeting is Monday and it would be really, really great if I lost all three pounds!
