I like to make a fruit smoothie or protein shake for my drive to work.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Plantfusion type of powdered protein as it contains no soy, no milk products, no animal protein, no sugar!!! It's plant proteins only , uses stevia and TASTES awesome.
Today I was out of vanilla to add my fruit to, and I wasn't in the mood for chocolate.
So took a lemon flavored greek yogurt for protein and added some almond milk (1/2 c) and a cup of frozen Mango.
It was so AWESOME!!! I can't wait for my vanilla plant fusion to come in so I can try the frozen mango with it!
I think this will be my new favorite breakfast!

OMG I had the BEST time on vacation. DH and I went out dancing, walked the boardwalk, and rented bicycles! it was a blast.
view literally from our bed.
our room had a kitchen so I cooked and we ate on the Balcony most nights.
Sunday night Dinner, steak, quinoa, spinach, and beans. (and Wine!)
And Biking on the 3 mile Boardwalk.
Date Night! we headed out to dinner and a night club and danced to 1 am.
Photo taken at the club. it was ON the beach. Awesome!
The weather was better than expected, we sat on the beach and I even swam in the ocean.
We had a fantastic suite, with a Jacuzzi tub and a small kitchen and living room. I wish everyday could be as relaxing as that vacation!!!
But Back to reality!!!
I just wish we could carry over all the GREAT feelings into our everyday lives.
My issue: My DH gets moody, which I feed off of and get moody as well.
Don't get me wrong I am NOT Perfect and I have my ...dare I say it...Bitchy days!!!
But I try to talk out my feelings...which isn't really a "guy thing" so I see his silence as a assault against me sometimes. I should learn to just leave him alone when he is sulking. but I don't then we argue. *sigh*
This week however I have re-thunk my reactions and Mr. Moody showed up last night, I asked if there was something wrong he said NO. so I left it at that. he said no...ok go about my life without trying to fix it, or find out what is making him seem sulky.
This morning I got up and was all chipper and ignored the Moody part, made him a nice lunch, kissed him and said Have a fantastic day...and moved on. I didn't REact to his quietness. I just decided to take his "Nothing wrong" and go with it. Not my problem to fix if you don't want to talk about it. I asked him if he wanted a protein shake to take on the road since I was making one for myself...he said yes and I made it and left it on the kitchen table with his lunch and jumped in the shower.
I feel fantastic this morning. and no one or Nothing is going to ruin my mood!!!
I am up 3 lbs from LID, I was up 5 since returning from Vacation and have taken off 2.
Today I had a protein shake and coffee for brkfst. and made a fantastic salad with chicken on it for lunch and planned fish and spinach for dinner, no complex carbs for a few days and I will be back at mini-goal weight.
I have decided that now that I am feeling better, and haven't had back issues or knee issues for a while, I am going to rejoin my spinning class for the Winter.
I hope I can feel this fantastic everyday! and I KNOW I can continue to maintain for the next few weeks, then start losing again. I WILL continue to do GREAT with my Healthy eating plan.
Here's wishing everyone a FANTASTIC TUESDAY!

I didn't stick to the plan to the absolute letter. But I did really well. I wanted to be at 205 before my vacation. and today I am at 205.0. I feel great. I will maintain over my vacation and be on P3 for 3 weeks.
Then after the holidays I will do a round of HCG and try for my goal of 175. but I am not going to beat myself up if I am not PERFECT.
I am losing weight and feeling healthy, That's all we can ask for right?
tonight I am making zucchini soup. the recipe looks great. I can't wait to try it.
tomorrow is choir, digging out the Fall decorations and putting out the scarecrow and picking up some hay bales for the yard.
My DH is working overtime so I pretty much have the house to myself.
I hope everyone is doing fantastic. no matter what your doing...do it well.
do your best. Don't take minor slip ups as a failure.
We all slip up on our plans from time to time, the key is to keep getting back up and moving forward.
Have a fantastic weekend! Drink an extra glass of water. Smile.

It has been over a week since I updated.
I have been doing well, but not really STICKING to protocol, so I am losing like 0.02 or staying the same. I drank on Sat. so no loss, but NO GAIN so I'll take it.
Then I have been eating things like green beans, a "taste" of rice and a smidge of potatoes, and some oil with dinner.
Which isn't BAD, but deters or slows my losses.
I am down .5 lb today though.
I really just want to be at 205 before my vacation next week, (Oct 3 for 5 days) I was first shooting for Onederland. but that's not going to happen. and why beat myself up over it.
I am weighing in at 206.8 down from 226.8 at the start. I am 5'10" so it's not that bad.
I feel better, I look better in my clothes. so I am going to go into P3 on my vacation and LOVE who and where I am at!
I will shoot for Onederland when I do my next round.
Haven't decided if I want to do that in November or January. I am not even going to attempt it in December. (Christmas and my 3 year Wedding anniversary
- I won't go hog wild, but I don't want to be thinking about protocol and my weight then)
I have to say HCG Protocol has really made me rethink the way I eat, which is a GREAT thing!
I drink a ton more water than I ever have.
I think of food as fuel not a security blanket or friend.
And strawberries can be a dessert without having to be covered in sugar or whipped cream.
I actually think I look pretty awesome.
But I know I can really get to a more healthier weight, lower BMI and even more AWESOME.
And health really is the main reason I started this journey. the Awesome part is just a plus!
Together, with journaling, sparkpeople, and your encouragement, I know, I can do it!!!

Not quite ready for the cold mornings! but I will deal it is sunny and beautiful!! I had thought of ending this round this week, but since I am taking a vacation with my hubby the beginning of OCT I decided I wanted to look my absolute best and be under 200 lbs. at 5"10" I could stay around 195 and look fine. but I would really really like to get to my goal of 175 someday before I turn 50!
(which is only next year!!!)
I have decided to continue this round for 15 more days. I have a party to attend this weekend. but I KNOW I can stay on track!! I will be bringing fruit salad, and I know there will be shrimp and other protein, so I can DO THIS!!! I may bring a veggie platter too just to make it easy on myself.
I am so very excited about going to Ocean City, MD with my hubby, we have booked an AWESOME room, a suite with a balcony and a small kitchen. So I can cook us a nice dinner and we can sit out looking over the ocean. I am going to bring candles and some wine. A nice romantic time with just us. I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!! I think we even have a Jacuzzi tub in our room.
I know it won't be warm enough to lay on the beach in a bathing suit, but I still want to look thinner in my clothes, I plan on taking DH to a nightclub and boogie the night away on Saturday night.
I hope everyone is doing fantastic. I know this is the time of year that we all want to start eating comfort food...but we can have it and still stay on track!!!
