Am I ready for some football?

Well, today is my little brother Justin's 16th birthday. WOW! I feel OLD! I am 8 years older than him! So he is a JV football player in highschool. One of the stars of the football team really. He and my other brother, Danny (17) have played football since they were toddlers so they are both really good. Anyway, I am not much for sports. I never have been. My idea of an interesting sport is ice skating. My mom and stepdad are die-hard football fans. Every Sunday they BBQ and watch football all day long. I am sorry but to me, that is B for boring. (no offense to you sports fans) All my brother wants from me for his bday is to come to his football game tonight and to make him dirt cake for this weekend. So I think I can handle that. I will get pictures tonight and put them up tomorrow!!! :) I did go grocery shopping last night and spent way too much money. But I got plenty of healthy foods to cook so that's a plus. I ended up eating a Michael Angelo's vegetable lasagna last night. The individual serving has cheese, squash, zuchinni, carrotts, brocolli and cauliflower. VERY good and only about 350 calories. Not too bad for an entire meal. I also baked banana nut muffins last night and had one right out of the oven for dessert (120 calories). I stayed under my calorie target by 500 calories so I went ahead and lost those pesky 2lbs I gained the other day. But I am still stuck at 182.4lbs. It seems like I have been at that exact weight a hundred times. If I gain a little and then lose again it will be that weight! FREAKY! I can't wait to break out of the 180's for good. Once I am out I will never go back again like I did last time. I WON'T!!!!!

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Hot green tea, vanilla cm powder, and 1 splenda. Blueberry greek yogurt and 2 tbsp of walnuts
Lunch: Hartz chicken but I was really good and ordered a baked chicken breast, skin removed (ate 1/3 of it), corn (about 3 tbsp), cabbage (about 3 tbsp). the meal came with a roll and I literally ate a tiny pinch off of it, barely one bite, and then gave it away. We also had banana pudding but it was yukky so I didn't eat but one tiny bite of it.
Snack: a tangerine and a few smokehouse jalapeno almonds
Dinner: a small salad with romaine lettuce, 1/2 avocado, 1 small roma tomato, and 2 tbsp ranch dressing. 1/2 cup of baked beans and angus beef sausage. YUMMY...can't wait for dinner!
Dessert: probably a banana nut muffin (maybe)

I won't be able to work out AGAIN tonight (seems like I have an excuse every day) because I have to go home and cook dinner and then get up to my bro's game. But I think I might do some runs up and down the bleachers throughout it just to burn up some calories. hehehe We will see tomorrow if I had a loss at all.
*Fingers crossed*

P.S. I hope I am not boring everyone with my daily menu. I know that when I read blogs I love it when people post what they eat every day. It's interesting to see what people who are losing consistently are eating. I hope that I fall into the "losing consistently" category soon!


  1. Not boring - especially if it works for you! I love you being here daily!

  2. I have excuses for not working out too. Maybe we could swap some so they will be more original?!


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
