Weigh In

As promised, a weigh-in: 186 pounds this morning. I have some water retention going on from driving 10 hours in the last 2 days, so I should see a new low in a few days. I had a nice trip with the kiddos! Here's what I did for meals:

I switched to 4 Medifast meals and 2 regular low carb meals for those days. Saturday, we stopped for lunch in a restaurant and I had a large green salad topped with grilled chicken, and had blue cheese dressing on the side. I always do that; when I dip my fork into the dressing and then stab the salad, I use far less dressing on the whole salad... about 2T max. (I mentioned these meals in a post yesterday but lemme recap!) Dinner was a 6oz Fillet Mignon and instead of a baked potato, I asked for 2 veggies: steamed Broccoli with fresh shaved Parmesan cheese on top, and sauteed green beans. It was delicious and filling. Then Sunday for breakfast I had a nice big Egg Beater omelet filled with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, and ham. The coffee (with Splenda and half & half) was divine. Dinner was a FAIL but a reasonable fail; my son had a diner in mind he wanted to try. They DID have grilled chicken and canned veggies but that had zero appeal for me. So I ordered the taco salad. Oh it was so yummy! It was not greasy either, and I used salsa for dressing. I really enjoyed this but the FAIL part was eating half of the deep fried shell! It was delish, but not healthy. After I got it I thought, next time I will definitely ask for the taco salad WITHOUT the shell bowl!

I have been so busy all week that I have not even tracked my weight or exercise at all. I am still walking a mile a day during the week (taking my daughter to school), and am working on getting the exercise room decluttered so I can set up my bike and weights in there. My goal is to have it done in a week. We'll see!

So I am just trucking along, doing my thing and not stressing (nice change of pace). I may do another post this afternoon; I have a lot of stuff rattling around in my head! I'd love to hit my 100 Pounds Gone weight this month. It'll be close! I think I can do it!
