Pretty much sums up my weigh in
I am still at 198ish and am kind of frustrated. I know that I have lost inches though because of the compliments, not to mention clothes that did not fit two weeks ago are quite roomy! I know I should be happy with that but I am so tired of being stuck at this weight. I promise every "diet" I try I give up at this point because the DARN scales do not budge. I am not going to give up though. as I have said many times before I do feel really good (other then being so tired whats that about?
) Anyway thank you guys for checking in sorry I do not have better news...I even waited to post my weight til this morning thinking maybe if I got on the scales today instead they would move
Cannot remember if I posted anything in your journal...the kids were all ON yesterday and I had no down time. I did read it though and WHOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO you hit your mini goal way to go girl that rocks. Who cares if you had a "free" day you did not eat anywhere near what you would have eaten before SBD (at least I know I was a human garbage disposal
) and you do work out and have been working hard I say go for it, as long as you get back on track and it does not cause cravings its all good in my opinion. Especially if this is supposed to be a new WOL ya know...who realistically can stick to it 110% all the time for infinity? Now I will probably get slammed for that but I do not care...like I say the SBD police have left me alone so far! Great job though I am so proud of you!
Hey girly hope you are having fun at your bridal shower...your big day is getting closer aren't you thrilled?Here is the Mexican Lasagna recipe...1 pound extra lean ground beef/turkey
1/2 large onion
1 large clove garlic
1/12 cups low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 jar chopped green chile peppers (4 oz)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/8 teas salt
2 1/2 cups salsa ( I use De Walle farms fr. wal-mart it has 0 sugar)
4 whole wheat tortillas (6")
1 1/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat Monterey-jack
Preheat to 350
Brown beef, set beef aside in bowl. Brown onions and garlic and then add to beef
In another bowl, combine cottage cheese, sour cream, peppers, cumin and salt (this is the cheese mixture)
Spread 1 cup of the salsa across the bottom of the baking dish (13 X 9). Arrange half of the tortillas evenly over the salsa. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the tortillas. Top with half of the ground beef. Top with 1 cup of the remaining salsa and 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat layers.
Sprinkle with mont. jack and bake uncovered about 30 minutes til heated through...if cheese browns to fast you can cover with foil til done.
I cannot believe how yummy it is. We all liked it and that NEVER happens in my house. I hope you like it! I will check in with ya'll soon to see how you are doing!
Yesterday was interesting to say the least. I went to counseling...it was good and my counselor (the one who told me about SBD) had been doing it some then quit...well she was printing off recipes and told me I looked so good she had to get serious and is now starting back on ph.1
I love compliments but cannot understand how folks think I look good when I have not lost anything in roughly 2 weeks??? Then I am off to get the boy...walk into the classromm and there are three teachers waiting for me
! Needless to say it was not a good day for my son, he is really struggling with this new medicine and truly is not himself...No need to go into detail but it was a memorable chat I had with the teachers! So we get home (its almost 5 by this point) and call the Dr. to let her know its not working and if we cannot do something one of us (me or my son) may not make it through the weekend
(Partly joking here
) anyway we are back to square one on the medicine I just wish he did not need it
not to mention the 9 month old has decided that if he is not on my hip life is over
I secretly do not mind this one cause I know one day I will look back and he will be grown!
For those of you who now live or have lived in an apartment here is a chuckle for ya! I have been in this apartment for 8 months now...even though the people upstairs have "adult relations" LOUDLY all of the time (it seems) I have NEVER complained. Most nights the baby and I pull out the sleeper sofa so that I may actually not have to hear them doing the wild thing. Now knowing that I have a baby I am also very considerate...if we happen to be in my room and the baby cries in the middle of the night (does not happen that often btw cause I was blessed with a good tempermented baby) I take him to the living room so that he will not disturb others around me. The people beside me never come outside it seems...but their son (probably 19 or 20) has taken up the electric guitar and has pretty much been playing it ALL DAY every day for about a month now. Me complain you ask? No cause hes a kid nobobdy else is really here during the day so I suck it up and hang out in my room provided its not a weekend and the sexfest is not going on upstairs. Why am I telling you this????? My 9 month old just needed a diaper change and was crying...not screaming not throwing a fit just kindof crying out while I got the diaper and wipes. Took all of 30 maybe 45 secs to change him then I washed my hands after disposing of the diaper. The entire process took less then 2 minutes. I sit back down at the computer to finish complaining to ya'll about the stall and hear a BANG BANG BANG BANG on my door. I answer it and the next door folks...yeah the ones who are TRYING to play the guitar(right now AS I TYPE) have the nerve to ask what all the screaming in my apartment was about. Excuse my language here but what the HELL???? I could not even muster up the obscenities I wanted to scream at him. I politely said there was no screaming, if you are referring to my 9 month old that you have never heard before now then yes you may have heard him crying but no screaming and I as politely as I could SLAMMED my door and came back to my computer to VENT!!!! Seriously he needs to kiss my much thinner white butt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sheesh Sorry I will probably look back on this and laugh some day but right now the baby the 7 yr old and I are gonna play hide and go seek as LOUDLY as I can.
Ok so I won't but I should I cannot wait til my lease is up...back to a house for us!
K so thanks for listening...I will post my menu later the baby is making a few noises and I do not wanna disturb anyone
