Here we go again...

Hola! Casey and I made it back from our cruise, Caleb's birthday party is over, and life as I know it is back to normal... thank goodness! Bad news, I didn't wear the purple shorts on to the boat. I am okay with that though, my knee injury  has been more of set back then I thought and I wasn't doing that great on my eating plan so I kinda expected it.

While on the cruise, Casey and I had time to talk about our goals and what we want to really happen with our lives. We both want to lose weight and be healthier for whatever lies ahead of us. So I found a great site on Pinterest that has over 100 meals that are non-processed and I started making a calendar of what we would eat. When we got home, that very next day I went grocery shopping. I only bought 1 thing that was processed and that was cheese because lets face it, I am a rat and so is my kid. You only live once so I am not giving up cheese (or diet cokes for that matter)... just got to eat it in smaller portions!

Breakfast: Oatmeal - easy and I love it
Snack - Carrots
Lunch - Lettuce, tomato, 1/2 avocado, 1 cup ground turkey and 1/4 cup black beans with low fat Cesar dressing (40 calories a tbsp).
Snack - Watermelon (yummy!)
Dinner - Grilled chicken breast, 1/4 cup black beans, 1/2 cup peas and a side salad.

I have been doing really good sticking to this, heck because its the only food I have in my house! I have had some slip ups like having a fun size twix bar at work, having 2 can diet cokes instead of 1, taking small bites of Caleb's grilled cheese sandwiches (the kid is addicted). But like my friend Jamie says, I am human and I will mess up but its how do after you mess up. You should know by now the weekends are the hardest for me, but hopefully with Casey on board we can really do good this weekend.

Oh and besides me working out at the gym on my lunch, I have also started talking Caleb to the park after work everyday... we walk there! I need to get his umbrella stroller out though because I want to walk more after he plays and he is worn out. We will try that out tonight.

Okay, I have re-started so many times its getting old for me and Lord knows it has to be getting old for you too... but this time I KNOW it different. I am not going to make any goals except for to stop putting myself down (calling myself fat, etc.), to get back up and try again if I have a bad day (instead of eating bad and saying F it), and to make sure every day I get some kind of workout in (the gym, walking, ab video at home). I am trying and even if I have to restart 100 more times, it means I am still alive and I still have that initial determination down deep inside (somewhere)!

  1. I love the goal of not putting yourself down! You are not fat. You are not a failure....etc. etc. (whatever you may say to yourself) You are beautiful! You are not a quitter! You are worth the time you put into yourself!....etc. etc. etc! xoxo
