Definitely Changing

Last week I did two things that I never would've done in the past, and liked it.

I made grilled salmon and asparagus for dinner one night, oh and rice that didn't finish in time this particularly rushed evening. Since I didn't need/want it that was fine with me.

I also chose to make turkey burgers for my husband to grill for me when we had a barbecue with friends on Saturday. He was grilling hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone else. And I chose to have it on a 100% whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mustard, with only one deviled egg (that I made with half lite mayo and half regular) and nothing else to eat.

The best part?

I was totally happy with my choices. I did not feel like I was depriving myself. Both of those never-would've-eaten-in-the-past meals were tasty and enjoyable for me.

Yes, I also made chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans one night, but I made room for my small portion in my calorie budget for that day. So, even that decision was fine and I was happy with my choice.

Yes, I'm definitely changing and so very grateful for it!


  1. Small changes add up big over time!

  2. You chose all the right things and you chose to be happy with the food you ate! Love that Leah! I hope you have a great week.

  3. I recently tried grilled asparagus -- it was very good. For years I didn't like asparagus because I had only tried canned.
