Haven't had anything to eat. Feeling ok today. Wasn't feeling very good yesterday, but feel a little better today just sad now because of the cat. I have had my coffee this morning and also some freeze dried fruit. That's about all I have been able to Handle as of yet and we are coming up on lunch. So we shall see if I can sport some lunch or not.

Here we go! Day after valentines day and didn't do to bad! I can totally feeli t though in my joints! But yesterday was a special day so I'm ok with it! We are on our way to pick up our new bed and smoker in tri cities. I have my coffee with me and not sure how much I will have to eat today because of how I feel with all the gluten I ate yesterday! 

Almost forgot to blog what I had today... Wasn't feeling all that well. Had a 1/2 a ham wrap because we were on the move and I needed something to eat. Wasn't all that good but it filled the small little void I had.

For dinner I made some sautéed cabbage with onions and bacon. And drank lots and lots of water.

My hubby is sick! Throwing up sick... I hate when he's sick because he's such a baby about it. And for some reason, he never knows why he's sick, why he's throwing up, or way he hurts. It's like he doesn know his body or how it feels and that drives me crazy!! When I get sick, I can usually tell you. It's because I have the flu, a cold, I ate something bad, etc. not him!!

Going to go on with my day and go to work because I can't be around him like this! Having my coffee this morning!

Some pistachios for snack. Not to hungry for lunch but have been snacking on raisins. :) more water.

Dinner was a little bit of chicken and 3 bacon wrapped asparagus ... Yumm!!! Still not hungry!

February 11th, 2014

It's the hubby's birthday! Which means a nice dinner of sushi tonight. Which means, eating oh so good today! 

Yesterday wasn't as bad as I thought. Maybe it was the working out or the broccoli with dinner, but I actually dropped weight! Thank goodness!

5 pounds till I hit that first goal. Started out as 22 pounds to the first goal on January 1st so I'm getting close! 17 pounds gone and 5 to go! These last few weeks have been a. Slow progress, but they have been a progress. I am fitting back into my size 10 jeans. And that feels great! 

Getting ready to pour my coffee for breakfast and grab a banana.  Had a orange as well

Pistachios and strawberries for snack.

Lunch was some left over London broil and just a little bit of almond milk yogurt. A few more pistachios.

Had sushi for dinner. Although I did good and ordered sashimi I did have a little bit of rice, but didn't over gorge myself with it! And had 2 glasses of wine with dinner as well.

February 10th, 2014

Bad morning! Only food wise though! I must of been craving some awful sugar! Started out with my black coffee and banana, had a little bit of trail mix and a almond granola bar, but then had a brownie that was in the staff room! Time for lots of water!

Strawberries for snack time
Broccoli slaw with balsamic for lunch

After 3 brownies today!!!! I drank a ton of water and had a little bit of steak and broccoli for dinner!

Kickboxing killed me! I could feel it in my joints that I wasn't right. I blame it on the gluten and sugar in the brownies! And of course now I have bad gas!!

New day tomorrow!

I hope I have gotten all the bad food out of my system. I wasn't hungry for hardly anything at all yesterday, but knew I needed to fuel myself with something, so it was fruit, veggies or a larabar. I'm having my coffee this morning but not sure if I'm hungry yet. May just wait a little while and have a banana and see how that does. I do have my workout tonight, so I'm looking forward to that. I needed to get myself back in the gym and it's starting today off. 1 day with th personal trainer, 1 day with kickboxing class and 1 day on my own. Maybe I should run the blooms day :) we'll see. That's not until May!!

Super Bowl Sunday! That means lots of friends, big game, commercials and food! Lots of food.... Some of it bad food.... So I hit the gym this morning to do my workout. I'm ding part by taking a fruit and veggie platter to our friends house so I know there is going to be munchies for me along with an awesome strawberries and spinach salad that I have been dying to make and try!

February 1st, 2014

Here we go! Starting a new month out! I'm ready! Didn't gain a pound after last nights great treat/cheat! :) I'm excited about that, but I'm back to the grind of all that I can do to get this weight off. I think my treat/chest is going to be valentines day this month!

Morning coffee is in hand. 

Went to the local health food store and found some chia seed pudding.. Chia seeds, banana and coconut milk. Had to get it and try it... Not to bad! :) that was my snack! :)

I did pretty good tonight with dinner! Nic choose where we ate. Rock Top Grilli s where we went. So of course he gets his fish and chips. I wanted a hot dinner and not a cold salad. So I had them do their California chicken burger minus the bun and the cheese and instead of steak fries, grilled veggies. It was good! I did have a glass of red wine with dinner and also snuck a couple of Nic's fries when he was finished eating! All in all a good night, lots of walking in heels and standing for pictures and that kind of thing. My feet hurt but I'll live! I avoided the root ever floats they had to munch on and the kettle and candied corn they were offering as refreshments. Stuck to my bottle of water.

Tomorrow is Super Bowl and we are headed over to a friends house for the festivities. I have decided to bring along a platter of fruits. And veggies and a salmon to have smoked. I think I will be able to stick to some good clean eating while there. :)
