Friday -- YEAH!! I'm so thrilled again it's Friday -- that means sleeping in, funny that's what I get excited about..ha ha. I can stay up late and sleep in! :)

This week I've really been trying to dig into why I overeat. Really question - WHY? And you know what? I have the HARDEST time figuring it out!! I don't know why. No clue! Is this why I'm not successful in losing weight? Maybe a piece of the puzzle? Why IS FOOD SO IMPORTANT to me? If I overeat or eat something I shouldn't have I question the why's and it's strange I have no idea...none! Odd...

Anyhow I have been pretty good this week with the exception of having some candy on Wednesday!! We are going to start planning our meals more -- well dinner anyhow -- I already do my breakfast and lunch. Since the husband is committed to changes this will help as the night time has been the challenge for me lately...and with him on board it should be easier to change that.

I made Hamburger Stoganoff last night and it was soooo good!! It came out to be 8 points per serving w/ a serving of whole wheat noodles. Also had a side of veggies. I don't have nutrition info (it's at home) but should be easy to figure out if you want to!

Hamburger Stroganoff
serves 4
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 onion chopped (I used a generous amt of onion flakes)
Sliced mushrooms (I left this out, but some like them! Don't remember how many)
1/2 cup beef stock
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 Tablespoon flour
1 Cup Lite Sour cream

Brown ground beef, onions and mushrooms. Drain fat and sprinkle beef w/flour and mix together. Add beef stock and tomato paste. Continue to cookover low heat until thick (or until noodles or rice are done!). Take off heat and add sour cream. Serve over noodles or rice!

Well my goal is to stay on track for the weekend and with the husband on board should be easier to tackle. We are making a menu for the week together this weekend and hitting the grocery!

Have a great weekend!!
