its not quite pay day yet..but, i just had to share the news…
i’ve dropped 10 lbs. apparently money IS a great motivator. only sad part is the first 5lbs don’t count and steve currently owes me 50$ but, i’m hoping if things keep going as well as they have been..i can drop at least another lb or two by friday..i’m not holding my breath though.
here’s what i’ve been doing that’s been helping out quite a bit. no carbs (breads or pastas) after 12pm. no fruits after 4pm and a small serving of protein and as many veggies as i like at dinner time. i eat a 2-3 hours BEFORE i go to bed. i’ve also been eating more nuts..cashews,almonds,peanuts to help get in a little more protein. because i’ve basically quit eating meat. i eat eggs or fish. i can’t stand chicken or red meat of any kind. and i never really liked pork to start with. i can’t say i miss any of these things.
i tried the chocolate mousse recipe i posted and i was pleasantly surprised. its pretty effing tasty. i also got this pomegranate tea that i really love right now. i’m usually not into the pomegranate hype but this stuff is amazing! *sips* also i’ve been drinking soooo much water its crazy. i swear i pee almost every 10 minutes. which is horrible when i’m at work, because i have to do the mission impossible (theme song included) so my boss doesn’t see me running to the potty every so often.
so, yeah, things are going great..and i couldn’t be more excited about the loss of my fat..good-bye fat..its been swell but the swelling’s gone down..hopefully for good!
cereal with skim milk for breakfast..
peanut butter banana smoothie for lunch and a wee bit of melon
had the rest of my salad from yesterday, lettuce, two eggs (hard boiled),avocado,cherry tomatoes,cucumber, shredded cheddar and yogurt ranch dressing for dinner.
factor in some green tea, lots of water and exercise and you’ve got yourself a healthy girl =)
I tried to eat blueberry oatmeal for breakfast..still don’t like blueberries..but i tried and that’s what counts.
i did work out today, abs, cardio, and a bit of strength. so far my foot has not given me any problems for a while..so i call that a plus.
this weight loss challenge so far is going pretty well..

it seems to get harder and harder for me to find anything i want to eat lately..i don’t have much of an appetite at all..on the plus side i haven’t felt the need to stuff my face with sweets..but on the other hand i should be eating atleast another 200 calories a day..so, if you guys have any really neat recipes or what not or know any great sites that have great health food please feel free to send me links..
