I'm sorry! I've been focusing on my weight loss A LOT & neglecting everything else! I do put makeup on & do my hair each day but I don't do anything exciting! I want to bring you into what's going on with my weight loss! Tomorrow will be 4 weeks & I feel happy, in control & more than anything I'm motivated! These 4 weeks have NOT been easy. I've struggled with trying not to binge & making healthier choices.
This blog post is about what I eat on a regular basis & what I'm working towards. So I'll start with all the goods!
First off, if you like desserts & ice cream, you have to try Skinny Cow products. They are delicious. The ice cream is so good that even Dustin loves them! I usually pick up the Cookies & Cream Truffle bars & the Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches. They range from about 120-150 calories, but they are the perfect treat for after dinner!
I eat pre-packaged meals about twice a week. I try to stay under 300 calories & then I include a piece of fruit. I love Smart Ones, but they are expensive so i usually grab what is on sale. Lean Cuisine had a sale 5/$10 which is a steal because Smart ones are almost $3 each! I love the Key Lime Pie dessert cups, Macaroni & Cheese & Lasagna Florentine from Weight Watchers. They are all so good! I picked Lean Cuisine this time (which I haven't tried, but I've heard great things about!).I love fruit! Winter sucks because fresh produce is expensive & usually crap quality. However, the store had strawberries buy one, get one. I grabbed four packages (I cut the other 2 packages up & split them into tupperware for lunches!) I also picked up raspberries which are my favorite! They were on sale for $2.99 (these sell for $5 sometimes!). You can't beat fresh fruit, it fills you up & tastes awesome!
More fruit! I am hooked on Cutie's Clementines! They are small enough to throw in my purse, easy to peel & sweet! I get a case a week, they are expensive but so worth it. I eat about 2-3 a day, mostly with breakfast or for a snack to hold me over when I'm starving!
And this is one of my favorite things to cook (and eat!)! This is homemade Spicy Vegetable Soup. I use canned diced tomatoes (no salt added) & reduced sodium chicken broth, I allow them to simmer with a few spices ( Mrs. Dash, cayenne pepper, parsley, black pepper & garlic powder) then I add fresh onions, garlic, green beans, celery, carrots & cabbage. I cook for about 20 minutes & then enjoy! You can change it up too! Sometimes I add sweet corn or asparagus, whatever is in my fridge. You can keep the cayenne out if you don't want it spicy. I make it in small batches & then take it to work. It is so much healthier than processed soups!
keep your fingers crossed that my weigh in is down tomorrow!
Have a great night!!
