A headstart on a resolution

Honestly, I did not intend to become yet another person trying to lose weight in 2008. Been there, done that. I’ve already been down that road, many times, and actually weigh a lot less than I did for most of my life. So I didn’t think my resolutions this year would be to lose weight. But unfortunately, the holiday season did not really agree with me. I swear, I tried to be good. I thought I could maintain my comfortable weight by continuing my workouts (check!) while letting myself indulge a bit in holiday goodness. I swear, I didn’t go totally crazy! But I must have overdone it, because I’m left with a closet of ill-fitting clothes. So the day after Christmas, I went right back to Sparkpeople. Exercise is not enough, I need to count my calories and keep them low. So healthy food it is! Feel free to leave negative comments whenever you catch me eating something I shouldn’t from now on.

Tonight, I made a variation on my Pumpkin Black Bean burritos. I made them casserole-style in my tapas pans for perfect portions and good presentation. I divided the filling mixture among two servings instead of 3, and added a bit of water to thin it out. I layered this with two 6″ corn tortillas and added some salsa on top. This is a very flavorful and filling dish, for under 400 calories.

    Sadly, I know how you feel. My pants are clinging tightly to my waistline, as I type this.I’m going to try and post healthier recipes in January, but we’ll see how long that lasts.

    I have the exact opposite resolution (I need to GAIN weight), but I still understand your struggle – good luck!! In the meantime, the pumpkin-black-bean burritos sounds quite delicious!!
