Sorry, it’s been a while…life gets

Cray Cray sometimes!  So let’s see, I joined weight watches, I have lost 19 lbs since October…Woot Woot for me.  That is two sizes since I am only 5 ‘1, and YES that one inch is on my Medical records to there!

However, the chances of me getting even close to 100 lbs is slim and none, last time I was 35 years younger, with no kids, or hubby, all that adds weight to you 🙂

WW + kitchen toys = Delish!

HA…..I love the WW app, the bar code scanner is a life saver!

The other day I spiralized some butternut squash, and yam, zero pts, then I put them on the T-Fal grill and made hash browns out of them.  Boo freaking YAH!

Grilled up some tofu (3 oz) 2 pts and goat cheese (3oz) 3pts, in skillet, warmed up some flatbread 1pt, and nice breakfast for 6pts.

In case you are wondering, on points system I have 30 daily points and 28 weekly (oops) points.  The daily reset every day to 30, the 28 don’t, they reset weekly.

6/9….. oh Come On….

same ‘ol same ‘ol …..get up in am, do dishes, feed dog, fill in what I ate from last night, start new day…..

Yoga

breakfast – egg cheese tomato sandwich on flat bread

Lunch 1/2 – tomato soup….an not just any soup…. there was a can of the condensed stuff in the cupboard, but I added 2 tomatoes I cooked up after picking from my garden, left them chunky and then added soup with 1/2 water and 1/2 milk.   Plus  1 can greenbeans and mushrooms, however, I believe it should say “ONE mushroom sliced paper thin” because that was what it was.  So I added some real mushrooms and cooked them up.  Pretty darn good!

Dinner…. CoMe ON….are you kidding me….a steak n shake just opened so guess where we went for dinner…let’s see…. son 1 – bacon burger, fries, shake, son 2 – triple burger, fries shake, hubby – spag/chili, 2 sliders, shake – me – GARDEN freaking Salad and Diet Coke….does anyone see the problem here….my son says to me “I didn’t start eating healthy” when I grumbled about the food….sheesh…

Oh and then lets add some salt to that wound shall we, or should I say sugar!  After dinner they decided on “Nothing bundt Cake” and we all go little bundlets.  Yes I got one, but I cut it in half….I am only a human after all !!!

 

6/8 it continues….

get up in am, do dishes, feed dog, fill in what I ate from last night, start new day…..

Yoga

Walk Dog

Breakfast –  1/3 noosa yogurt (high in carbs so split in 3)

Lunch – flatbread PBJ sandwich

Vacuumed Living Room and Hall, then ran the Steam Cleaner over Lving Room and Hall

Snack – (1/2) 3 Musketers bar

Dinner – Wienerschnitzel….and before you go crazy, I had a Kraut Dog – 250 Cal and Corn Dog 23o Cal – so not the greatest in nutrients, but Low Cal 🙂

Dessert – Carrot Sticks

 

6/7….

yeah, I know, I skipped 6/6…..maybe just maybe  there is a reason for that,…..so anywho…

Got up – did dishes, fed dog,

Did Yoga, Walked Dog

Breakfast – 1/2 low carb flatbread, 1/4 avocado (spread on said bread) and one egg (cage free, veggie fed) also on bread, roll up and enjoy

Lunch – partie un – Grapefruit with granola, NOT sugar, sugar kind of defeats the whole purpose of grapefruit right?

Lunch – partie deux – 1/2 low carb flatbread, peanut butter and jelly – helps to with the snacking and sweets at once

Dinner – Lettuce wrap sandwich – avocado, cream cheese, pickles, tomato, spouts, bacon

So as I am munching my carrot sticks for dessert, my husband wants to go on a “dessert” run.  So we got to the store and come back with Double Stuff Oreo’s……OMFG….really, you have no idea how bad I wanted those cookies, but nooooooo….I was good, I got me a low carb cinnamon bun yogurt, added a teaspoon of granola and ONE (1) cookie…..it was so delish, but I stopped at one.

 

 

 

 

 

6/3 food diary/exercise log

I will try and remember to post, keeping a log helps to control what I eat….’cause people will see what I eat 😉  and I forget how long, or how many days, so I will date it, but the days will be behind the posts….sorry

Breakfast – Oatmeal made in advance – see 6/2 post

I am splitting my lunches in two to help stave off the snackies I always get

Yoga

1/2 lunch – 1 c soup – ate the rest of it….all gone now

1/2 lunch – 1/2 c cheerios with strawberries and black berries

The fruit needs to be eaten because I made it for lunches but because of the Monday holiday, made to much.

and….I forgot to enter info and know I can’t remember……%$^*!

 

 

 

6/2 – Food/Exercise & Kitchen Mash-up

So, in order to really eat right you have to admit what type of food person you are…I am a snacker…..and impatient….remember attention span of a gnat!  I have to prepare my snacks and other foods so they are quick and easy to get to.

This also helps with my kitchen-mashups….”how you ask” let me show you.

I need to eat a hearty breakfast….Oatmeal is good but BlAnD….so hmmm…let’s see what we have in the fridge….aha…..dates, pineapple, cherries….need to use them before they go bad….ok…here we go:

I made the oatmeal with water and Vanilla soy milk, while this was cooking, I chopped up all the fruit, added a little water and let it boil the fruit soft, then I mixed that in with the oatmeal and WALAH….the same tasty oatmeal as some restaurant places with no extra sugar added, good source of fiber and not to bad on carbs….plus I can eat it HOT or Cold depending on my mood.

Breakfast – 1/2 c fruited oatmeal

Lunch – Low carb wrap with – lettuce, tomato, avocado, cucumber, cheese

Exercise – 20 min of Yoga Stretches

Lunch – 1/2 c   Chicken Corn Baby Potato soup  – here is the story about this mash-up:

we bought one of those already cooked chickens from the store, but….heLLoooo, they aren’t already cut up…so YUK….I had to do it, poorly I may add…so it was so so and I had a lot of meat left over.  I also bought one of those aluminum dishes of small baby garlic potatoes to go with….yea, well,…..that was a failure also…so, you know my usual solution …make a soup out of it!

So I pulled all the meat off and put in a pot with 1/2 water 1/2 veggie broth, then added i cut up the potatoes and added them since they already had a flavoring on them, and then I added some left over corn on the cob nibblets and there you have it, a souper soup 🙂

Dinner was….no judging here, we were out looking at houses, so Micky D’s it was, but I had a GRilled Chicken Sandwich and we shared the fries

A few carrot sticks were for dessert.

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone knows what time it is right?

Back on the watching what I eat and exercise wagon!  I don’t say diet, cause they don’t work.  When I just take the time…that is the key…take the time…to do it right, the weight comes off.

So ….some of that is bullshit…..I am doing exercise – yoga – again because my back has started hurting again….when I do Yoga no pain, no Yoga…Pain.

You can find lots of youtube videos so I can do it at home for FREE…  so yea, I need go to the gym for cardio…but the Yoga is really what I needed right now 😉

So since I am going to exercise and yoga, might as well start watching what I eat as well…less weight to carry is always a good thing.

Get ready….its going to be a WiLd ride 🙂
