South Beach Diet -- Day 11

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Another good day. I went to my co-worker's Pampered Chef party tonight and had a great time. I didn't even go off my diet! They made some chicken fajitas, bean dip, and some kind of cheesy dip. There were lots of crackers, tortillas, and they also made a molten lava brownie thing with ice cream on top, and some little lemon tartlets. I just had a scoop of the chicken fajitas (with no wrap), and a scoop of the bean dip and a scoop of the cheese dip (small scoops, and no crackers.) I didn't have any desserts, even though my co-worker came and HELD HER DANG PLATE OF MOLTEN LAVA BROWNIE WITH ICE CREAM UNDER MY FACE AS I WAS LOOKING AT MY CATALOG!!! I could have killed her. I had a good time tonight. It has been years since I went out by myself and did something fun with a group of women. I even saw a woman there that used to be a parent in my classroom years and years ago, and we laughed and talked. I like when conversations are easy with new people. I just had a good time tonight, and that makes me happy. I'm so proud of myself that I didn't go off my diet. I wasn't even tempted. Yes, everything looked and smelled amazing, but I really didn't even want to go off my diet. I know how badly I want to accomplish my goal(s) and I know how HARD I'm working out in my Jillian says in one of those workouts, "Don't undo all this hard work by eating badly." I really want to succeed, so I'm ready to do whatever it takes.

So,'s today's rundown:


Day 11


Breakfast: two scrambled egg whites.

Lunch: leftover "fried" cabbage with turkey sausage, and leftover SBD "surprise mashed potatoes" (the steamed/pureed cauliflower).

Dinner: Pampered Chef chicken fajitas (with chicken breast, green pepper, onion, lime zest, and seasoning. No tortilla wraps), a dab of sour cream and shredded cheddar... small spoonful each of bean dip and cheese dip.

Snacks: peanuts, cashews, string cheese.

Activity: Jillian Michaels Blast Fat Boost Metabolism.


I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday. We were invited to an event at my parents-in-laws home this weekend, but Husband called and said we weren't going to make it because Daughter and I have both been sick this week. He said we each missed work and school, so we're just going to lay low. I'm feeling much better, but I was really starting to dread the encounters, after the stressful situation from last month. Husband said since it took us (mostly me) three full weeks to recover from that, that he didn't want us (mostly me) to get all stressed out and upset again. Sometimes I want to strangle that man, but other times he is just so sweet and considerate. He wasn't crazy about the idea of going, believe me...but knowing he didn't want me to be all upset again is just sweet. I guess maybe he really does think of me sometimes *wink.*

Ahhh, bed. Time for some TV and relaxing. This is my favorite part of the whole day.

    lol I did the exact same thing at the baby shower I went to. I got a small scoop of everything just to taste it, awesome job avoiding the brownie ice I'm tasting it just typing it. I don't know if I would have been able to resist, so great job!
    emoticon stay on track!!

    Think we all could do that... strangle one moment and hug the next. Just make sure the hugs are more then the strangles. lol
