It's what we should tell ourselves each day.
Having a day of splurging or taking a day off from exercise is NOT quitting.
HOWEVER, allowing one bad behavior to repeat itself over and over again...
well, looks like you're headed toward QUITTING
But don't.
If you find yourself spiraling out of control, time to change things up.  
Obviously something going on in your life is causing you to go through moments of doubt and those feelings are probably causing you to lose focus on your goals and what you'd like to accomplish.  Am I right?  

Write down goals and priorities, the reasons you started this journey in the first place! 
Write down and think about what you want out of your life...  
Do you want to lose weight?  
Do you want to be healthy?  
Do you want to stop gaining and losing those same 10lbs?  
If you answer yes, then REFUSE TO QUIT.   

Recipes of the week:

                      Move It Momma's Cheesy Enchiladas
You'll Need:
Mission carb balance small, fajita size tortillas
1 can diced tomatoes with chiles
1 can black beans
1 can FF refried black beans
chili powder
1 cup skim milk
1 tbs all purpose flour
1 tbs margarine or butter

Saute butter and milk in a pan on med-high heat until simmering, add flour.  Allow mixture to thicken and turn off heat.  Allow to cool.
In separate dish, mix black beans-drained and refried black beans, stir until combined and add 1/2 tsp of each cumin and chili powder, stir.  Set aside.  
Dump half can of the tomatoes with green chiles to the milk mixture on stove with heat OFF.  Stir, set aside. 
Fill each tortilla with bean mixture, then a little LF cheese blend.  Lay in sprayed Pyrex dish.  Once all tortillas are prepared, pour milk and tomato mixture onto tortillas and then sprinkle with a little more cheese.  I added 1/4 cup to the top.  Bake at 400 for 35 minutes or until bubbly.  I allow to cook a while longer to get extra crispy on edges :)  HUGE family favorite and add less chiles if your children cannot tolerate a little spice!  

                     NAAN pizza variation:
You'll Need:
NAAN bread-I have whole wheat TJ brand

steamed broccoli and cauliflower 
turkey pepperonis
