Well on my way...again...

Hello my fellow bloggers/followers! How have you been? Sorry I haven't posted in a few has been crazy always! I have been doing well on plan for the past week, so that is good news! is so easy, yet so hard for me to just FOLLOW THE PLAN! I don't know what my problem is sometimes! :-)

Tonight I made Spaghetti Squash for the first time...and guess what? I'm in love!! I made it instead of pasta, and topped it with homemade meatballs and sauce. ( not homemade sauce though...haha...I'm not that good! ) Honestly, I could barely tell I wasn't eating pasta, and it's good for you, and 0 points for a cup! Can you believe it? All you do is take a spaghetti squash, cut it in half, and cook them face down on a cookie sheet at 375 for about 45-55 minutes. Once it is done, remove the seeds, and scrape the insides out with a fork into your bowl. It looks just like spaghetti, and tastes just as good! I can't believe I didn't find out about this earlier! I have a feeling it is going to be a staple dinner now!

( I didn't take a picture of mine...but this is pretty much what it looked like! YUMMY! )

Another thing that I was pretty excited about today, was I had a $2.00 off 1 Healthy Choice Frozen Meal coupon, so I made 25 copies of it! I got 25 frozen meals for $6.00!!! I was so excited! I like them even better than the Smart Ones frozen meals, and I was so happy to get them for so cheap!

Overall, a good day today! I'm hoping to be down a good bit on Thursday...I was up 4 pounds last week from my past few weeks of doing bad! YOWZERS!!! Hopefully I will lose most of that, if not all of that, this coming week! Have a great rest of the weekend!

Granola Bar - 2 points

I will have to share the recipe for the Chocolate Melting Cake! It is from "Deceptively Delicious" and it is YUMMY!!!!! I had it last night while watching The Biggest Loser! Did any of you watch it last night? Man, I was crying...I can tell it's going to be an emotional season. I can barely look at the lady who lost her family without crying! Can you even imagine? Exp 2 week postpartum? You are so emotionally unstable already! Wow...I hope she goes all the way...she is so inspiring! Just the fact that she is choosing to go on in life, and not crawl into a hole and die, ( like i probably would ) is amazing! Love her!
I'm really hoping to be at my lifetime weight by October 1st, as my dad and I are taking a trip to NYC to see the Mets play the Astros! We are going to be able to get in the stadium before the gates open, and meet the players, take pics etc! It's a long story, which I sure you all don't want to hear! ;-) Anyway, I'm sure I'll be in pics, and ones like that, you show everybody, and I don't want to look FAT! I have to work super hard these next couple of weeks! See ya tomorrow!

Honesty is the best policy

I'm so sorry I haven't been posting. I'm sure I have let a lot of you down! In all honesty, I've have done horrible since my last post. I've gone away 3 times since then for the weekend, played and done photography at weddings, and have had 3 parties. All of which, revolved around food, of course. I have probably gained like 5-6 pounds. Isn't that gross? I'm so sick with myself. My main problem? I haven't been tracking. I haven't been excersizing, and I've been so busy, that I've missed 4 of the last 5 meetings. Life has just been overwhelming, and sadly, I have given in to all the temptations that were involved. Life happens.

To the best of my ability, I am going to try to start posting daily again. Maybe not pictures of my food every day, but at least a food log. That really helped me before, being accountable to you all and reading your encouraging comments. Please hang in there with me. It really does help....even if I am never an encouragment to you! LOL...all I ever post about is how bad I do! :-)

So, that is all I have to say. Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes. All I can do is keep on keeping on, and starting fresh again. I WILL be back tomorrow night with a post about how my day went, and maybe a new recipe soon too. Hang with me...will ya?
