Im shopping on the internet and find that every single band I like only carry youth sizes for thier T-shirts! WTF.... Who the hell can fit youth sizes, they are tiny. To fit a youth large (which is the largest size they carry) Im gonna have to be at my goal weight. I have a few youth size Large T-shirts and they are tight as crap on me :-( .... it really sucks that these bands only cater to people that are 12 - 16 years old and have no boobs or hips when most of the dudes in the bands are my age or older in the first place.... you would think they would know that other people listen to them besides teenagers. Even the mens sizes are in youth! My little brother who is 19 and at a healthy weight would have problems fitting into youth sizes.
Im a 28 year old mother of 2 with a big cheast and big hips and no matter how much weight I lose thats not gonna change. I geuss I am stuck shopping in the granny section of the store where band tshirts dont exsist.
grrr. It annoys me.

This morning hubby was very sweet and made me breakfast. :-) He got annoyed at me because I kept throwing my two cents in while he cooked but everything turned out awesome and we had a great morning.
Breakfast: 2 eggs over easy, 2 light & fluffy pancakes, strawberry sauce, 1 jimmy dean fully cooked turkey sausage
(I decorated this shot with my mothers day cards :-) )
After breakfast we went to kholes because I had a 5 dollar off and 15% off coupon. I got a few new workout tops that were on sale and ended up only paying like 4 dollars for them after the coupon. Hubby also bought me a sports watch for my mothers day present. It wasent a surprise but I got to pick the one with the features I wanted... a daily alarm so I dont forget to take my vitamins and other pills, intraval timers so I can time my walking/jogging intraval workouts, stop watch and of course the time and date. Its a really nice watch although I wish it had of come in pink.
We came home and had lunch
Lunch: light all beef hot dog w/ wheat bun, onions, mustard, ketcup & relish.... 1 1/2 servings of sweet potato fries..... 1/2 apple
Hubby was really great and watched the kids while I did my workout. I did my 30 minutes of walk/jogging. Doing 2 minutes of jogging and then 1 minute of walking. Then when I was cooling down from doing that I was having such a good time I desided to just power walk for another 30 minutes. It was beautiful outside and I borrowed my sisters Ipod so I was really just enjoying being out there in my own little world.
When I got in I had this...
Snack: 2 wasa wheat crackers & spinach dip
Later I got ready to go out to dinner. Hubby desided to take me out for mothers day... I have really been craving sea food so we went to this place close to us that we had never tried before. I dressed up and noticed that the dress I wore for valentines day fits me much better now :-) and when I was trying on jewelry I came accross a bracelet that I bought when I weighed 310lbs (my heaveist) Its amazing to see how it fits now because when I bought it, it was tight on my wrist... If you can beleive that. wow!!!
Dinner was great... We split everything and did not eat the baked potatoes but I still ended up eating like 800 and something calories... because I did eat a few things that were fried. Mostly everything was broiled or steamed though. A really good dinner. Im super full though... not use to eating so much and that was alot of crab legs.... again I did not eat all of this, it was split lol. I also had maybe a drop of the butter, not much.
By the end of dinner I was wishing I had worn something a little less dressy because eating crab legs in a dress that you dont want to get all arfed up is not easy.
I had a great mothers day... although a little high in calories. I will make it up durring the week though, with great eating and a butt load of exercise.

Well I think I did pretty good yesterday. I did not track my calories and even though I could do it now, I reeeealy dont feel like it so Im not gonna. I feel like I most likely did not go over my calories though, there was nothing extravigant that I ate yesterday so I think I came out ok.
Breakfast: old fashioned oatmeal w/ 1 tbls brown sugar, 1 tbls smart balance margarine, a dash of cinnimon & 1 tbls raisins
Snack: sams club samples - 1 peice angel food cake, 1 peice herb encrusted tilapia, 1 peice chicken courdon blu.
(I did really good at sams club because they had cookies and chocolate and pizza and other really really good stuff and I passed right by it. I only tasted the stuff that I reeally wanted)
Snack: 1/2 banana (my son aiden wanted a banana after we got home from the store, I peeled it for him and he took one bite and said... Im done.... I told him that he was gonna eat at least half of it since he asked for it... I ate the other half even though I really wasent that hungry)
Lunch: Turkey on Thomas' everything bagel thin with 1/2 tbls light mayo & 1/2 tbls honey dijon mustard, lettuce & tomato......... 1/2 serving sun chips
Dinner: Broccoli, tomato pesto & bacon bit quiche..... asparagus & cheese sauce..... flatbread with tomato peso & mozzarella cheese
Snack: Chocolate cupcake & 1/2 cup 1% milk
(Ok turns out every snackcake in the snack cake isle has hydrogenated oil in them... WTF.... so I look in the deli section and they have snack cakes that have a sell by date for the end of this month (instead of the end of this year) and they dont have any in them.... they are 200 calories though so I couldent get any more low calorie snack cakes...... turns out it was totaly worth the extra calories. OMG this was the best chocolate cup cake ever!!! Much Much better than the crappy mrs freshlys snack cake I had a few days ago. If your keeping your calories in check most of the day a 200 calorie treat is not gonna kill you so I went ahead and spluged a bit. I was totaly satisified afterward and dident want to snack anymore the rest of the night.)
