I was thankful i lost .6 lb this week not much but better than nothing ! Went to the flea market today and got a box of 20 love inspired books for 3 dollars ! Drawed my picture of dennis the menace praying ! Had a good week hope to stay on track next week ! Don't give up you can do this with the Lord's help !
Well looking back over this week i made some wise choices ! Still eating out more than i like but dh really enjoys it ! Yesterday we got grocerys and went to subway ! I had him to thirds his forrest ham sandwich and got some chips to go with it . They were 210 calories but all natural sun chips . First time i have ever had them wasn't worth the calories to me . To have it to do over again i would have got a parfait but i didn't think at the time ! We basically go to subway -wendys -dairy queen or burger king anyone got healthier suggestions ? I usually eat a kids meal and bring most of the fries home for the 3 dogs and 2 birds ! At wendy's i would eat the chilli but it is to spicy for me ! I usually eat a chicken wrap at wendys i am burnt out on salads plus they are alot of calories ! Have a great weekend ! I thank God i am doing my 5 minutes of chair exercises again ! Not much but everything helps !
Went to the grocery today ! We usually try to keep our grocery bill @ 50 dollars or under . This week i bought some waffle fries. A family size bag was 2.69 and 1 cup of them are 160 calories Also go sweet potato fries in the waffle cut . They have 130 calories a cup !DH likes onion rings and fried potatoes ! I do to but can't lose weight like that ! Once in a while i bake 2 potatoes in microwave till done then put alittle oil in iron skillet slice and brown them ! I got some fish fillets vankamp for 90 calories a fillet ! The juice healthy choice in grape i got last week i divided it into 4 empty bottles i saved and filled them with water . That way i got 4 times my money and hardly no calories and i am getting at least 64 oz of water in aday with alittle flavor to it ! I got 3 lbs of hamburger this week and i will add over half onion to it some 35 calorie bread broke up egg whites out of 2 eggs salt pepper and a large can of tomato soup mix that all up and make patties out of it 5 per lb put them in cheap sandwich bags then still all them in a freezer bag ! We call it fried meat loaf ! It's lower in calories and makes your meat go farther ! Doing pretty good staying on track with my food but wish we didn't eat out in fast foods so much ! I am working on a plan for that . Usually i eat a kids meal and bring home most of the fries to my 3 dogs and 2 birds ! Anybody got any ideas i am always looking for recipes and tricks of the trade here on spark !
Wow i can't believe i am actually enjoying the fruit box i bought at wal-mart ! I am going to get to go to a family gathering this saturday and will get to see some of my nieces and nefews i haven't seen for over 40 years ! I have tried to connect with family but i had 3 brothers and i was the only girl ! After mom and dad died the 3 boys stuck together but didn't include me ! One lives 50 miles from us and i have tried inviting myself to his house but he always says he's not sure he's gonna be home ? But he got saved awhile back and he's the one having a cook out so pray all goes well ! I found out along time ago you can't make them love you ! The rest of my family most of the partys they had alcohol and didn't invite me because of drinking it in front of me ? I am thankful for my church family and my spark family tho and won't let anyone take my happiness away ! LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT IF IT GIVES YOU LEMONS MAKE LEMONADE ! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK WITH THE LORDS HELP YOU CAN DO THIS MY FRIENDS !
Tried to get by without buying grocerys this week needed to use the money for other things but we needed to much so maybe next week ! I bought a 3 lb box of fruit melody in the fruit department that had all kinds of fruit cut up in it ! It was 5.88 but will last all week ! Also bought special k cracker chips 27 if them is 110 calories ! Bought some shredded lettuce so i can add our green onions and some tomato for an extra side with my dinner ! Still got some beets from the health food store they are 10 calories each and i usually eat 3 for a side for dinner. They last along time like that . I can them to but ran out ! Last night dh and i picked up dd and a pizza and went out to the lake and ate ! First time this year but really enjoyed it . Didn't know donotos pizza was 340 calories a slice for pepperoni tho . We got a large one i can't eat most pizza because the sauce burns my mouth but i can donotos so i am going to see if i can get it in thin crust and save calories ! on Mondays we have 1/2 price sale here ! Makes it nice ! Last week i ate lousy most of the week was gone alot didn't get to cook meals at home and ate to much fast food ! Hope to do better this week ! Have a great week !DON'T GIVE UP ! IF I CAN HELP YOU IN ANYWAY I AM HERE !
