Struggle Bus- Ashley Week 4

I am still riding the struggle bus on the weekends. I do well during the week, but when I’m being social it’s harder to say no. Early in the week I walked by a coworker’s lunch that smelled delicious. Really, it was just a frozen meal. It was some sort of pot-pie, and I decided I was going to find a vegan recipe. I went on pinterest, found the recipe, and made a huge batch that night. I froze some, and ate the rest throughout the week for dinner. In sticking with my style, I didn’t buy a fresh onion, fresh carrots, etc. I bought the frozen veggies and turned them into the potpie. That worked great because the only vegetable that was missing was the potato and I wanted to control how much potato was in there. For the huge batch there was less than half a potato, and next time I will skip it entirely. I didn’t bother making the vegan crust, as it included oil and vegan butter. I just skipped it and honestly didn’t miss it at all. I spent some time “cleaning up” the recipe. There is no point in sharing the recipe, as it is nowhere close to what I actually made. It just searved as a starting point. I used almond flour instead of regular, cut out all the oil, and added in a lot of lima beans. I think with adding the lima beans, they gave a similar effect to the potatos, but are more nutrient dense than a potato.
Weightloss: I’m down half a pound this week and things are still fitting better. I love my jeans again!
Goals:GO TO THE GYM! I always say I’m going to, but I’m bad about actually getting there. I also try to go to dance classes with my co-workers, but if they have something come up I never go alone. There is no reason for me not to go! The classes are free!
Help hold me accountable. I am hoping to have a much better report next week!
