Regrets, I’ve Had a Few

You know that meme that says something like “no one ever regrets a run or a workout.” Well, I’m experiencing what may be the reciprocal of that. Lately I ALWAYS regret when I eat crap. Always. Yet I still sometimes do it.

This past weekend I went a little nuts with the chocolate chip cookies and chips. I snacked my way through 3 days and then unlike this photo I regretted every bite.


I didn’t feel guilty or mad at myself for eating what I ate. I wanted it so I ate it. There’s nothing to feel guilty about.

My regret, however, was in the physical, not mental realm. My gut simply couldn’t handle it. I felt miserable and I’m still dealing with the consequences.  My body simply doesn’t handle junk the way it used to or maybe I’m just more in tune than I notice?  I don’t know, but I do know I don’t like it.

So this morning I decided to give myself a little kick in the pants, keep a food journal for some accountability and make the best choices I could. Here’s how my day shook out.



I called it my lets-kick-today’s-butt breakfast. It was a hash made with:

  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1 leftover baked potato
  • 6 large Brussels sprouts
  • 2 eggs

All topped with hot sauce, of course!


I brought leftovers to work.


That’s pork loin with roasted Brussels sprouts and potatoes with a side of kale-broccoli salad with beets. I also had some baby carrots that I forgot to photogragh.


I ended up coming home much later than expected but I didn’t let that stop me. I cooked up a storm!

And I’m not going to lie… I crushed it!

Pork chop dinner

I used my favorite pork marinade but used onion instead of garlic and then decided to cook them, which was a wonderful addition!

Right now? 

My stomach is a little empty. I’m thinking I may make a quick version of this smoothie with just a banana, almond butter and cocoa powder. It’s a yummy dessert of sorts. Then again I’m feeling lazy so I may just grab the fruit salad out of the fridge.

I really wish I had more energy to post on GreenLiteBites like I used to because pushing myself in the kitchen always helps inspire me, but I just don’t have the energy right now.

I did have enough energy to sneak in some game time with the family tonight,  which was nice.

And I’m going to sneak in at least 5 minutes of guitar practice before bed.

Oh! And I started running again! Nothing to write home about but a mile on Saturday, a mile on Sunday and almost 2 on Monday. Hey, it’s a start! I’m all about the #wycwyc right now.
