Week 5, Day 29; Re-weigh-in and a good day to you sir

Thursday, March 24, 2011

So I lied yesterday and did actually change the ticker to reflect 155. Might at well stay honest right? And of course this morning when I stepped back on the scale it read 154. I hate you TOM. But thanks for taking that pound back, I appreciate that.

This morning's breakfast was delectable. I had my whole oats with 1 tbsp flax and 1 splenda, and topped it with a tbsp slivered almonds and 6 perfect, dark red, sliced strawberries. I made sure to show it to everyone so they could be jealous. With my morning coffee included we are still talking under 300 calories. (Score!)

I feel good today. It must have something to do with all the motivating spark blogs I have been reading. I realize that my #1 job is to take care of me. Hell, if it is my only "real" job then I better be really freaking good at it. I am not letting excuses get the best of me. Also, summer is coming and I know slim&fit me is WAY hotter than excuses-for-being-overweight me. Also, that b*tch is lazy.

Last night I made asparagus fries. I got the recipe from my sister.
pre-heat oven to 400.
prep asparagus.
sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder
15 min each side.
voila! asparagus fries.
(I use non stick spray to get the flavors to stick.)

I ate a lot of them. No regrets. And no, my pee doesn't smell or look funny today.

    I don't eat a lot of asparagus, but I am going out and buying some. Just to try your recipe! I like your sense of humour and you are doing great!

    I'll have to try that recipe. You're one of the lucky ones. I love asparagus but the pee odor is horrible.

    I like that you are looking at this journey as a "real job" and deciding that you need to be freaking good at it. Good outlook - I think I'll adopt that idea. Also - the asparagus sounds so yummy! I heard that there's only a certain percentage of the population that can smell it in their pee. Unfortunately I'm one of them. :(

    I doubt that they're as healthy as something that you make yourself, but I can nom through those "just green beans" buckets like nobody's business, even on days when I don't want to eat my veggies.

    Glad you're doing well!

    Ok i'll bite why would your pee smell or look funny after what you ate? Congrats on learning to take care of you because if you don't who will. Keep up the good work and try weighing in only once a week. I have a hard time doing that as well.
