Well, after not feeling that great for a few days, my appetite came back...oh did it ever come back! Thursday and Friday were NOT good days, eating wise. I was STARVING, and of course I happened to be places that had really "good" food. I just wish I could do perfect all the time, I really do. I would have been 40 pounds lighter, 3 months ago! As hard as it is for me to "do good" on the weekends, I NEED to get back on plan today! I can't let 2 more days go by with eating like this, or else I will MAJORLY regret it when I weigh in on Monday. Pray that I can just forget about the past two days and just move forward...will you? Have a great weekend!

How was everyone's Easter? Sorry I haven't posted in a few days...I've been pretty busy! I weighed myself this morning for my weekly weigh in and I was 206.5! That is 4.5 pounds since last Monday! NOW...the catch is, I haven't felt 100% the past few days, so I have been eating way less, and having some stomach issues, so I KNOW that contributed to such a loss! Nonetheless, I can't help but be happy about it! I'm not even going to post my food from today, because I didn't even eat close to my points for the day. I am feeling better today, but I want to give my body one more day before I go back to eating normal! :-) I must say that I was happy that this "sickness" came this weekend...I thought for sure I would do horrible with Easter....I made cheesy lasangna, bread, salad and we had lemon meringue pie! I only had a couple bites of dinner, one slice of bread, and no dessert! It worked out good! :-) :-) How did you all do with all the Easter temptations?

So, my husband asked me to make him brownies to bring to work this morning, and I made the mistake of taking a tiny lick of the batter....which turned into me licking the bowl afterwards! Obviously I didn't know how many PP it was, so I just guessed. Luckily my husband had to bring them to work, so I didn't get to eat any! :-)
Cheerios with banana - 5 PP
Brownie batter - 6 PP
Slice of Muenster cheese - 3 PP
Yogurt/Chocolate chips/strawberries - 6 PP
Velveeta Vegetable soup - 4 PP
10 crackers - 5 PP
3 mini Snickers - 4 PP
100 calorie pack of Oreo Thin Crisps - 3 PP
Hot Chocolate - 0 PP
So overall, even with my brownie batter situation, I think I did good. Even if I went over my points a little bit, there is always the flex points, so I am ok! I do want to save the majority of them for Easter Sunday though! :-) Hope you had a great day!

I will start off by posting my food diary for today!
Cheerios w/banana - 6 PP
Cheese stick - 1 PP
1/2 cup yogurt, 30 chocolate chips, strawberries - 4 PP ( more about this later )
30 chocolate chips - 2 PP
Smart Ones Macaroni and Cheese - 6 PP
Granola Bar - 2 PP
Slice of Cheese - 3 PP
3 crackers/2 slices of cheese - 3 PP
1/2 cup FF ice cream with 3 mini Snickers - 6 PP
I've been eating Smart Ones for dinner every night, if you haven't noticed! I have been working every day lately from 1pm to 7pm, so I've been having to bring frozen meals. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to be home and make something homemade for dinner.
Ok, so thanks to my life-long friend, Jenna, I tried the most amazing snack today! I chopped up a bunch of strawberries up, and mixed them in 1/2 cup of FF vanilla yogurt, and sprinkled 30 chocolate chips on it. I pretty much died and went to heaven. It was SO delicious, and healthy for a dessert! I'm thinking it's going to be a staple now in my house! Try it out and let me know what you think!
Off to watch Biggest Loser now! Goodnight!

Ok...so I came to some realizations today.
1.) I will not be able to keep doing my title's "Day 1, Day 2, etc". I know I will lose track, and have to look up where I left off, and what if I don't post a day? Do I skip a number? Bad idea.
2.) Taking pictures of everything I eat is just not going to happen. I have 3 kids under 5 and I am lucky that I get to look at the food myself before throwing it down my throat and moving on to doing something for the kids. Again, it was a great thought, but just not realistic.
3.) I am not going to be able to post on weekends. I will commit to posting M-F, but weekends are just crazy with my husband home, us running everywhere, etc. Plus, my husband works evenings M-F, so on Saturday and Sunday night, I don't want to be spending all this time on the computer when he is home.
So, with all that being said, lol, I am going to continue to post every weekday what I eat, and my weigh in each Monday. I love being accountable to you all! I hope this blog grows and I get many more followers so I have even more people to have to confess to! :-)
Today I weighed in, and was down 4 pounds! I debated telling everyone what I weighed, but I realized that it doesn't really matter. Last Monday I weighed in at 215 and this morning I was 211. I was pretty happy about it too, seeing that I always tend to eat more on the weekends! Yeah for me! :-)
Here is today's food log:
1 cup MultiGrain Cheerios with a banana - 5 PP
1 cheese stick - 1 PP
1 slice of Munster cheese - 3 PP
1 granola bar - 2 PP
2 slices of ham with 1 slice of Provolone cheese - 5 PP
44 pistachios - 5 PP
3 Fudge Stripes cookies - 4 PP
Smart Ones Alfredo with broccoli - 6 PP
Smart Ones ice cream sundae - 4 PP
That's about how it went! I'm exhausted tonight because my daughter was up last night sick, so I am headed to bed! "See" ya tomorrow!

Sorry about all the estimations today...lol..."handfuls" of things. I didn't have my points calculator and I was gone all day. I think I did an ok job with it though. I'm just hoping that I can do good tomorrow and Sunday! Weekends are always really tough for me for some reason! How do you keep yourself on track during the weekends??
Funny story before I close...last night I had a dream that I ate a HUGE chocolate bunny! The whole time I was SO mad at myself that I was blowing my diet! I woke up and was so happy that it was just a dream and I didn't really consume all those calories! HA! I tell you...trying to lose weight consumes my life! :-)

Hello to my 2 followers! ;-) I had a great weekend, with a lot, I mean A LOT of food, so I was very ready to start my "diet" today. I don't like calling it a "diet" only because I will probably be doing it the rest of my life! Here is what my day looked like:
Breakfast - 1 cup of Cheerios with lots of strawberries, and 1 cup milk
Lunch - 2 TB peanut butter and a banana on a wrap
Snack - Granola bar and Diet Coke
Snack - 49 pistachios :-)
Dinner - Turkey Subway sub and bag of Baked Lays
I have to tell you, even on Day One...I struggled! I woke up to leftover delicious chocolate cake from my birthday that was calling my name, my mom brought malted milk eggs into work ( my favorite ) and I had tons of my amazing alfredo left over that I would have GLADLY eaten! I stayed strong though! One day down....364 to go! LOL! See you tomorrow!

Alright, so I am turning 26 in 3 days, and have been really struggling to lose my "baby" weight from my 7 month old, so I decided to challenge myself and try something new! I decided that I would TRY my best, starting Monday, to post every day until I turn 27, and try to lose 40 pounds this next year. I really need encouragement and help....so feel free to follow my blog and leave comments, or suggestions! I will also be taking a picture of myself on the 11th of every month....but I won't post the first one until I have a better one to compare it to! LOL! Hopefully I can lose the 40 pounds BEFORE a year, but I don't want to set myself up for failure either! I am trying my hardest to follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program, just for reference sake! Well, I have a busy weekend, so I will be back on Monday!!
