Thursday we closed on our house! It was a wonderful process and we were super excited to start renovations to make it "ours". We got a lot of cleaning and prepping for the painting process done this weekend. So far so good.... just a few hiccups with my father trying to be too involved. I know he means well but he is trying to dictate what hubby-to-be and I should do and how to do it. There were a couple of fights that ensued but I hope that he finally understands that this is OUR house and that we will do it as we want, not as he wants.

I had no time to food blog this past weekend... but I was able to go to Bootcamp and Zumba this weekend!!!

Today I was back to work... but thankfully for only 3 days before once again having a 4 day weekend!!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!

I need to focus today on getting caught up at work, on my school work, and relaxing myself. I think a serious sweat session and bubble bath are in order for tonight!!!!!

Now on to today's food blog:


Chobani Pomegranate Greek Yogurt mixed w/ .5 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Egg w/ Shredded Cheese on two Slices of Trader Joe's Soft 10 Grain Bread

... I are 45g of Protein w. my breakfast!!!!!

Morning Pick-Me Up:

Medium Dunkin Donuts Iced Gingerbread Coffee w/ Milk


Salad topped with Peppers, Onions, Carrots, Sunflower Seeds, Croutons, Tomatoes, Olives, Feta, Egg Whites, Cucumbers, and Kraft Vinaigrette and a Cup of Vegetarian Garden Veggie Soup!

Mid-Afternoon Snack:

1 Orange

**Picture to Come**
1/2 Cup Brown Rice with Cauliflower and Broccoli mixed w/ Garlic and Soy Sauce

Calories: 1,108
Carbs: 138g
Fat: 37g
Protein: 66g
Sodium: 2,176mg

I ate poorly this past weekend out on convenience. We were at our new house that is 100% empty... so we ordered take-out each day. I also think I ate 4 donuts over the last 4 days.... WHOOPS! I did still lose .8# over this last week which is a plus!!!!!

But.... I was nauseous and light-headed last night. I think it was a result of poor food, lack of greens, and minimal protein. Today I am back on reduced carbs and added proteins!!!!!!

    congrats girl!! =) When Chris and I bought our house it was such a wonderful, exciting, stressful time! But well worth it in the end! One word of advice...if your hubby-to-be is as inexpereinced as mine with some of the "handy" stuff...don't let him near any saws. Yeah...that was fun. haha.

    also great job with your eating plans! I am working on upping my protein as well.

    hope it all continues going well! keep us updated!
