Starting the week out right!

Yummy bfast sammie!!
Nature's Own honey wheat, 2 eggs, 1 slice of WW colby jack cheese and chia seeds. Morningstar Farms veggie bacon on the side. YUM!

I like making lunches/dinners for the week on Sunday afternoons. I cooked up one package of Perdue Perfect Portions chicken breasts, and while doing that, made some steel cut oats in the crock pot. (Leading to today's menu)
Bfast: Overnight oatmeal w/ a glass of milk
Lunch: chicken breast w/ canned peas and carrots
Dinner: Not sure yet...doing Zumba after work so will be eating later. Dinner may be a green smoothie.
Well, lunch is over.

Today I had a small victory though. I said NO to homemade butter pecan pound cake! I came back to my desk and had a WW mini bar instead. If you are near a WW center and love dessert as much as I do, pick some up...they're a lifesaver for me!

Tonight is Zumba night. Do you Zumba? I'm hopelessly addicted!

Chat more later!

Back On Track....(AGAIN)

Back on track. How many times have I said that in the past? Too many to count. I AM, however, back on track and want to work hard to make this last push to lose the rest of my weight. It's a LONG and HARD journey, but it will all be worth it in the end.

I've seen a recipe floating around on the WW boards forever for crockpot beef tips. I finally gave them a try and it's delish!! The actual recipe I used was Her recipes are awesome so give them a try! I served my beef tips over no yolk egg noodles. YUMMO!

If only I could get my DH to try them...he hates mushrooms and refuses to pick them out and enjoy the beef tips and wonderful gravy. Oh well, more for me...LOL!

More later!

Downhill Spiral...

Life has been super busy the last couple weeks! I went to the NC State Fair on Friday for the first time, probably, in over a decade! I did really well with eating while there (considering). I had an italian sausage with peppers and onions. I only ate 2/3 of it. I was told that I HAD to try Al's Fries, as they were "famous" in these parts, although I'd never heard of them. We hunted down the booth, and I ordered a small, which was much larger than a large order anywhere else. I must be honest, I wasn't that impressed. I only ate 1/2 of my order. Moving on to the roased corn on the cob...DELISH!! I wish I'd only eaten the corn and gave up the rest of it. Man, that corn was good!! That's it!! No more fair food, no deep fried anything!

Then I came home, and it went to heck in a handbasket! I really wanted some ice cream, so stopped to get myself a cone while killing time before a candle party Friday night. When I got to the party, my girlfriend's boyfriend made a slammin' spicy dip, so in my mouth it jumps with a ton of chips too. BOO. There were also some mini brownies that somehow got onto my plate. Oh well, moving on.

Saturday morning I did the Autism 5K with some of my WW buddies. That was great!! But I had another party (31 this time) and guess what?! Another bowl of spicy goodness with a ton more chips...and banana pudding! GEEZ! I found that I had no self control over the weekend and I know I will be UP on the scale this week.

Oh, and let's not forget the World's Finest candy bars that I'm hustling for my cousin's twin girls. Yes, I've gotten into those too. WTH?! I've got to get recommitted and refocused.

Well, I guess I better get to work since that's what they pay me for! Chat with you later!

Happy Sunday!

Hello from work! I had to come in b/c one of my clerks is on vacation and the other's father is sick. I won't be able to post pics of my food today from here (12 hr shift) but here's the breakdown.

Bfast-Jimmy Dean sausage patties, WW Harvest Berries & Cream, skim milk

Snack-Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt, Kashi granola bar

Lunch- WW Smart Ones Ziti with Meatballs and Cheese

Dinner-undecided, but maybe turkey kielbasa and quinoa

Water, lots of water!!

Yesterday was a great day! I spent part of the day doing a 5K with my friend Rosie (who I met on the WW message boards).

I stayed with her Friday night, met her beautiful two daughters, and made a new puppy friend, Holly. People, if you are on WW you really should utilize the message boards. I've made many friendships there, and find much support as well as motiviation.
Off the soap box, and back to work!!
