I lost 2.4 lbs. this week! Yay! Finally a loss again. I weighed in at 213.2.
I have to say, I just hate seeing that number. I will be happy when it’s below 210 again and even happier when I see numbers I’ve never seen before! Onederland, anyone? I am glad that my clothes fit better and I feel less bloated though.
I have to be very careful not to let the fact that I’m not at my lowest discourage me. Now that I am feeling back to myself and no PMS or TOM issues, I should be good to go…for a few more weeks!
Plus, I’m getting back in to exercise and I can already see the benefits of that.
For breakfast, I ate Cheerios with strawberries, blueberries, and skim milk.
While working, I sipped on an Almond Joy iced latte with skim.
On my break, I ate mini Triscuits and Greek yogurt spinach dip.
I got off of work from job #1 early, so I had more time to work on Job #2. I got started right away.
I stopped at a lemonade stand and bought a glass.
For lunch, I ate egg salad (1 egg, 1 white, and Miracle Whip), in a whole wheat Salad Pocket.
I also had a side of kale chips. Nom Nom.
And still felt hungry, so I ate a Carb Balance tortilla with FF roast beef and thin sliced swiss.
I finished it up with a sugar cookie from the lemonade stand.
I thought about eating the other cookie but decided that would be just terrible to eat hubby’s cookie. haha
I must say that I am loving my new camera. Some of these pictures really bring out such detail. I don’t take a ton of time taking my food pics, so they’re not spectacular, but I do love my camera!
Tomorrow is payday, so I got to pick up my checks from job #2. Whoohoo!! I’m always amazed at getting money for doing something I love.
Job #1 on the other hand, I’m always amazed it isn’t more money… because I’m certainly not making enough to have to deal with some of the people I have to deal with!!
And then I got back to work again. This time with a cup of strong coffee in hand. The mug was a thrift shop find—sweet!
Ahhhh…been a while since I had hot coffee! I promptly spilled my second cup all over the carpet in the living room. Thankfully, the carpet is slightly lighter than the coffee color and you can’t see it after cleaning it up.
So I called today a work day and a “no pool” day. I thought it was going to rain. But it didn’t. Oh well, I got a lot of work done! I have to work a long day at Job #1 tomorrow, so that’ll take the stress level down a notch since I have most everything completed for job #2.
For a snack, I ate some pistachios.
For supper, I made sandwich thin pizzas with Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles and turkey.
I also made a side salad with lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese crumbles topped with BBQ sauce and light ranch.
The color in the tomatoes is just gorgeous. Just packed full of nutrients I am sure!! I love garden tomatoes! Thanks to my in-laws!!
I finished it up with my cheesecake concoction. When I perfect this recipe, I will share. I haven’t posted recipes in a LONG time!
That puts me at having 2 points left for the day. Another good day!
Hubby and I have our last swimming lesson tonight. That will be my exercise for the day. I’m not sure what swim stroke I will learn. I feel like I’ve gotten enough out of the five lessons and I don’t need any more. Hubby will sign up for more lessons.
Hmmm…maybe I can find a class to take!
