I’m back!

I'm back

 

Soo…I’ve been a bit of a blog AND diet slacker these days.

But now…I’m BACK!

The last few weeks I haven’t really been keeping up with my calories in My Fitness Pal App…which only leads to the slippery slope of not eating the best foods.

And it def caught up with me!

Monday (yesterday) when I got on the scale…there was this…

282

 

You’d think after the excitement of breaking under 230 I would have had some motivation to keep it going..not backslide.

But yesterday that number was a bigger slap in the face than this….especially after I was sooo close to the 50 pound mark last week!

135

 

So yesterday I started back counting my cals:

307

308

 

As you can see from my snacks…I really need to get the munchies under control!

I’m also going to try to start back up my food diary…it REALLY helps ya’ll!

OF COURSE...breakfast is muh usual

I get emails from Hungry Girl and she is always promoting VitaTops.  I’ve always wanted to try them..but you have to get so many at one time. I finally got on there website & ordered some for the office. That’s when I saw they now offer pizza! I got a few of them to try too! They were actually pretty good!

For dinner Danny grilled some pork chops…

304

 

I actually got the measuring cup out & measured out the serving sizes (1/2 cup) of beans & potatoes. But then I only ate 1/2 of each…so I adjusted MFP.

It’s always a good idea to start measuring and weighing your portion sizes to make sure they are accurate…DON’T GUESS!

This morning the scale looked a little better!

310

Lately..I’ve been reading this book….

This Is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever): Eat More, Cheat More, Lose More–and Keep the Weight Off

I follow a blogger, Skinny Meg, who posted about it awhile back…so I downloaded the Kindle version off Amazon. I have very little time to read…so I’ve been trying to fit in time here and there. It’s actually very interesting! It pretty much confirms much of what we have all heard about food (and much of what I have always believed). But it actually goes into detail about how foods (especially sugar) effect your hormones, organs, causes cancer & ect. She breaks it down where you can understand. Some things are real eye openers!

I know I need to educate myself on what’s healthy & really try to implement it in our life. Reading this book is a good first step! She talks about how to transition into clean eating…I may try her plan & post about it.

OMG WOWZA

Baby CageWhat do you do when your baby wants some fresh air but you can’t leave the home? Place your bundle of joy in a cage shoddily attached to an open window of course.  Patented in the United States in 1922 and popular in 1930’s London, the baby cage was intended for city folk whose kids weren’t getting enough fresh air, sunshine and fractured skulls.

Holy Moly that’s crazy! I saw this on AOL News today & about wet my britches! Even though it’s a 90 year old photo…it makes me a nervous wreck!

 

The FireboxThink pulling the fire alarm is a fun prank? Not when this 1938 device, which traps your hand until the police arrive, is involved. While the invention may deter the mischievous teen, it also kills the heroic man who’s yanking the dang thing cause there’s an actual blazing inferno. Talk about taking one for the team!

Something tells me they didn’t think this one all the way through!

So right now.. I’m sitting at home.. In the dark…listening to the storm outside.

And… I’m pretty ticked that the electricity is out! That means all muh shows won’t record! Ugh!

Zoinks!

Wish I could say the numbers on the scale this morning were a surprise…but I can’t.

What a weekend I had!

It was crazy busy and on the go and my weekend eating didn’t get off to the greatest start.

I went to Ft. Worth for my sister’s B Day dinner on Friday.

20130128-194159.jpg

Saturday I went to my 3 nieces cheer competition. It was an all day affair.

20130128-194807.jpg

I can’t imagine having more than one girl and having to get them all ready!

20130128-195126.jpg

My nieces are seriously some awesome little tumblers!

20130128-195227.jpg

This is what dad’s do at cheer comps:

Craigslist. Ha!

This is what’s my niece’s dad does at cheer comps:

20130128-195455.jpg

Ha! In his defense.. There was a lot of waiting!

Fun crazy fact:

20130128-200225.jpg

This is a pic a parent on my niece’s cheer team tagged my sista in. Her grandparents and our grandparents just so happened to be good friends back in the day in TEHRAN! Isn’t it a crazy small world world?!

We got there at 11 am and I left at 6. We only left once for about an hour for lunch.

We always have fun!

Didn’t count cals this weekend bc I was out and about and it’s hard to know what the calories are when you grab random stuff.

I got back to East Texas about 8 pm & headed straight to my friend’s house to set up for her Housewarming party since it was after church on Sunday.

I didn’t get home until midnight bc we were decorating & catching up.

Sunday morning church was great & the message was awesome!

We have a great youth group at our church… I love to see them all at the alter praying.

20130128-202213.jpg

After church, Daynie & I headed to pick up the cake & grab last min stuff before we headed to the party to finish set up.

20130128-203252.jpg

The party went fab!

20130128-203521.jpg

I had a lot of decorations and party plates ect left from my sister n laws housewarming party (a lata post you can see here) so I decided to go with the same colors.

20130128-204206.jpg

I had a fabulous group of ladies help me host!

20130128-204432.jpg

20130128-204530.jpg

After the party we headed back to church where we wrapped up the video series. I figured out that there was movie made a few years back so I ordered it on Netflix and I can’t wait to watch it! Very inspiring!

So that was my weekend.. Today I’m back at the diet & watching the cals!

That scale is on thin ice! It’s lucky it moved that .2!

20130124-215248.jpg

Chick-Fil-A is not considered fast food right?

Which brings me to think skinny tip #812: always get the kids meal.

It actually wasn’t many calories.

And I totally stepped up the Betty Crocker shit with that bad ass home cooked meal in the bottom left pic.

J/K y’all! J/K.

That was dinner cooked by Granny.

Don’t be jelly.

What did you call me?

It helps me to post my food & calories… Kind of like a food diary. Plus it totally holds me accountable.

Gots muh her did y’all!

Oh happy day!

Quote for the day from this handsome guy who also got a hair cut today…

20130122-193422.jpg

Everyone on Facebook does it…

In true FB style here’s a play by play of my food inhalation for the day.

You’re welcome.

Up a little from my FORTAAAY post… But 1/2 a pound up or down is pretty normal. Up and down is the story of my life! Ha!

Today is my 1st day back on counting calories.

I really love these breakfast burritos. The hot sauce is made locally and it us now the only kind I like. Everyone who has tried it LOVES it!

20130121-180919.jpg

I don’t like too many frozen pizza varieties.. But I like these..

Snack

20130121-181157.jpg

I tried to up the water intake… Total fail.

20130121-182318.jpg

We had lots a leftovers from the weekend so that’s what we had for dinner.. And technically that is homemade.

20130121-182635.jpg

Total fail on the healthy part too. At least I didn’t eat it all…

20130121-183333.jpg

And it was a low cal kinda day.
