Bad blogger

Ok, ok, ok… So the past 2 weeks I’ve neglected the blog… So SUE me!
However I have still been keeping on track and was down .4 last week (not much, but better than nothing), and down 1.2 this week.
I did a little happy dance when I got off the scale – which is the exact OPPOSITE of what I am used to doing!
In other news…
I discovered this kale salad in the pinterest (yes… “the”… deal with it). It’s called the Better Than Trader Joe’s Kale Salad & it is TASTAY!!! I ate it for lunch almost everyday this week & got my best work bitchachas hooked too:). As the website says, it’s shockingly delicious, and crazy easy! GO MAKE THE SALAD!!!
Ok, off to a bridal shower… I’m slightly nervous about staying on track – with wine & snacks etc. we’ll see how thi all shakes down… Wish me luck!

-1.6

Woop-woop!
Week one done & I’m down 1.6! My goal is about a pound per week – I’m trying to go slow and steady… I know fast has not worked in the past (hey… That rhymed:)
So what a way to wake up a Saturday morning!

Yummy yogurt!

Holy delicious yogurt Batman!!!
Ok, so 230 calories for yogurt is definitely on the high side… But this was my dessert tonight and I cannot even begin to describe it’s yumminess! Totally worth it.
It’s coconut low-fat yogurt (I heart just about anything with coconut), with a sidecar of toasted almonds & dark chocolate!!!
Chocolate!!!!!!
Yuuuuuuummmm…
Definitely needed this after a day of meetings that made me want to stick pencils in my eyes & gave me a migraine:/
Hope you all had a good Tuesday!
And seriously – go try this friggin yogurt. For realz!

884

So that’s where I am again! I have 884 calories left that I am supposed to eat & it is 9PM!!! Wtf??? I know I have things to eat in the kitchen, but I am TRYING to make healthy choices… Stupid oreos calling my name…
We’re double stuuuffffff…
And chocolatelyyyyyy…
Come and eat uuusssss…….
Only problem is, I know I won’t be able to stop when I should – I will eat half (possibly the whole) bag and then I’d be back at square one.
Bad idea.
Although I did make a trip to one of our local all natural food stores and picks up some fun stuff to try – one item I ate for dinner that I was a big Dan of was a broccoli and cheese frittata by cedar lane.
Tast-tay!
Also found a specialty store that sells every kind of flour, bean, extract, dried fruit, spice, etc. you can think of! Now that is MY kind of shopping!!
Unfortunately being a BG I don’t love to clothes shop – a frustrating endeavor for women of all sizes, but being plus size and petite with small hips – fughedaboudit……
Ok – off to the kitchen to see if I can find a snack and not ruin myself.
It’s been 3 days since I’ve had any pop! (that’s soda to any of you not from this area;)

What to eat…

20130322-230735.jpg

So yesterday and today I have struggled to figure out what exactly to “spend” my calories on for the day. The myfitnesspal app gave me all these calories & I haven’t been able to eat them all…
This sounds so stupid to me – I’m sure before yesterday I was eating double (or more) the calories they recommend. And once I get used to counting my calories again & go grocery shopping, I hopefully will not have this problem!
In non-related news, we (the boy & I) have been working behind the scenes on the musical at school this week & tomorrow is closing night! Was able to stay on track even with eating at odd hours:).
Ok, back to trolling the pinterest for yummy looking healthy (vegetarian) recipes… Help:).
