Still able to maintain my obsession for losing weight. I really enjoy reading other people's blogs so those of you who read mine, I probably read yours too! I didn't have a great diet day yesterday, but so far today, I have maintained. I have more trouble with it later in the day though. Had a nice lunch at Wendy's--one of their salads. The website says the salad comes in at 770 calories and I just don't accept that I ate that much! So I broke it down into components and it was more like 400. After all, I only ate one pack of dressing--minus 110 calories. There is some assagio cheese, but it's not a lot, and the chicken was fried, plus there were a few croutons, but still---770 calories when the primary ingredient is romaine lettuce?
I need to come up with a tasty dinner dish that the whole family will like. I made a roasted chicken the other day that was a big hit. I wanted to use the leftovers for another dish, but my daughter wolfed them all down! I made some soup a few nights ago that everyone seemed to like too. I am trying to use up everything in my kitchen and not constantly buy new stuff. I don't have that many protein options, but I do have some cauliflower and zucchini that needs eating.
We were trying to relocate to Qatar the last several weeks and we really thought it was going to happen, but now, due to a lack of communication we don't believe we are going after all. Now we are getting it together to possibly relocate somewhere in 2013. Being unemployed sucks! I'm lucky my husband has a pretty good job and we aren't at the bottom of the barrel, but it would be nice if I could find something too that was worth getting out of the house for. Recent activities in DC have had ripple effects in my Navy town and there is great unemployment. I'm not the only one suffering and that's a comfort. I wish the democrats and republicans could work together for the benefit of American citizens and quit being so partisan--their lack of activity really affects people!
