Mr. Clean's Twin Sister...

Sunday, July 01, 2012

ugh... my hair is falling out. I guess there isn't much I can do about it. I am just thankful I have a lot of hair!

It is a new month. My weight loss goal for the month is 10 pounds. I think that is very doable. It will take some hard work, but with careful diet and exercise, I think I can do it.

I am going to be the offical blogger for the Library... I will post the links once the blog is up and running, and I hope everyone reads it!

I am stopping at Subway for dinner. I want the lunch bag the kid's meal comes in. So, I am going to get a kid's meal. I figure I will get chocolate milk and give it to my boyfriend, apple slices for me... and for the sandwich I will get ham w/ cheese, tomato and yellow mustard on wheat bread. I might get white bread since the wheat bread is just brown white bread any way. I most likely won't eat the bread... but one never knows. I don't have any issues digesting bread, pasta, rice.... but, I just really want the BRAVE lunch bag that goes along with it

I think that is all for now

Lazy Person's lunch (photo)

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I didn't really feel like cooking today and making an elaborate lunch. So, using my handy-dandy Laptop Lunch kit, I was able to construct a cute, healthy lunch with minimal effort.

Healthy Choice Lunch Steamers Honey Balsamic Chicken
Cottage cheese - Jello desert
Carrots w/ greek ranch dip

Viola! I won't be able to eat all of this at one sitting, and I already have some tuna at work in the fridge to add for another meal. I eat 2 meals + a snack at work. For my snack I usually have some pretzels and a string cheese.

I really don't like to eat frozen dinners out of their container. It doesn't seem like real food if I do that. I always transfer it to something else to make it seem more like a meal. I spoke with my RD about eating frozen dinners, and she said that while I shouldn't eat them every day, there is no reason why I can't have them here and there. We talked about convenience factors, and she agreed that as long as I am not eating them for every meal, they are fine. I really like Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine. Smart Ones are ok, but not as good. Plus, I also usually get 2 meals out of one regular sized dinner.

When it comes down to it, anyone that has followed my blogs, knows I like to cook my own food 90% of the time. Sometimes, I just don't feel like it....

I think that is all for now!

    I find my Mom eats more of her meals on wheels when I plate them (and season some of the more bland dishes). Some how it does seem more a meal that way.

    I like to make my own frozen dinners. That way I can avoid the massive amounts of sodium and chemicals in pre-packaged meals. They are convenient when I have to travel.

    I use frozen foods on occasion, including foods I cooked and froze myself. To me the key is having plenty of veggies, which I usually have to provide. They are the balance to the denser foods, which are everywhere. You can go a long way on moderate portions of convenience foods, if you are under time constraints, until you are ready for more participation. Very smart way to supplement your cooking!

50 Pounds Down... clown!

Monday, June 25, 2012

When I stepped on the scale this morning, I have officially lost 50 pounds (well, a little over that). I am so happy! I am now only 8 pounds away from my first goal of 200 pounds.

I was so happy. In fact, I can't stop smiling. I never, ever thought I would lose this much weight! WLS was the best thing I have ever done for my health.

I decided today to wrap my change in preparation for my first goal reward. I have decided to purchase a FitBit. They are $99, and in change I had $85, so that is awesome.

Tonight at work was TJ's birthday. They had Pizza Hut Pizza and Breadsticks (my fave - well, the breadsticks, not the pizza) Milkshakes and Cheesecake. I am the one that purchased the cheesecake. I didn't eat anything. I brought my own lunch. I can honestly say, I didn't miss it. I didn't even care about the food. I wasn't tempted even for just a bite of cheesecake.

I think that is all for now!

  Good for you!! What a awesome motivator for me today. Thank you and kudos for turning down cheesecake. I found that I need to cut my fat intake ( after tracking my daily food ) Cheesecake would have definitely been a fat problem for me and my sweet tooth. But you did ... emoticon

Junk Food Night and Work Drama (photo & recipe)

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I decided since I was home alone on a Sunday night, I would have a Junk Food Night. On the menu... Chicken Pizza and Stawberry Banana Soft Serve

Chicken Pizza
1 boneless chicken breast pounded out thin
1 oz of part skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons of pizza sauce
* any additional toppings you want*

- Cook chicken breast in skillet until done, allow to cool as this will be your crust.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Add sauce and topping to chicken and bake at 350 until cheese is melted.

Strawberry Banana Soft Serve
1 medium banana frozen
2 small strawberries
- blend together until smooth using a food processor. Transfer to a dish and freeze for several hours.

So, I am so sick of work drama. I wish everyone could get along and quit backstabbing each other. That would make me a very happy girl.

I think that is all for now

    That sounds great. I hate drama, it can ruin a good day or an entire work setting/environment.
