Tuesday April 28th

I'm going to add my picture to this post later since I'm on my laptop right now. So I weighed myself this morning and there's been no change. But I feel skinnier. So whatever that means. My goal today is to chop up a lot of veggies to have on hand for all different things and to do 20 mkinutes of cardio...

Someone asked why I drink apple juice. Mostly it's because I'm craving sugar in a big way and it's better than drinking a coke. I pretty much only have it with breakfast. There is something in me that has a hard time drinking water with my breakfast.

Breakfast
Pancakes (1/4 inch thick and about 4 inches across)

Maple syrup

2 cups apple juice



Lunch

3/4 cups meatloaf

1/2 cup yams

1 cup cauliflower

1/8 cup corn



Snack

Carrot sticks with homemade dip (1/2 cup mayo, 1/4 cup olive oil, juice from half a lemon and 8 cloves garlic crushed, recipe from thetwosisters.com)



Dinner

Cowboy food (scrampled eggs with all beef hot dogs, mushroom and onions

1/2 in thick slice of white toast with butter



2 cookies



(we are really short on fruit right now and I'm missing it a lot. Can't wait for payday!)

Hey! We have something we call "Cowboy Chow," too. It's ground beef, onion, garlic, green peppers, corn (opt.) and a can of pork n' beans. This sounds outrageously disgusting, but it's actually yummy! We have it with baking powder biscuits -- when I was little, my mom called it "Beef, Beans and Biscuits," but I renamed it "Cowboy Chow" when my kids were little.

Because, as mothers know, a rose by any other name doesn't smell as sweet.

Hi,
A friend told me to check out your blog.
It's great that you're making conscious choices to make healthy eating a priority in your life. Sometimes it can be like trying to fix a problem without the right tools. I would really encourage you to see a nutritionist. They are so helpful when it comes to tips and tricks that translate to better health. Sometimes we make choices that we think are healthy, but in fact are sabotoging our best efforts.
Your family doctor should be able to help set it up if you're interested.

Hey Girl. I love checking your blog. You sure are an aspiring person. Wowsers. You rock by the way. You probably feel skinner because your body isn't bloated for all the suger and stuff. The bloating is the first thing to go before the weight does. lol. Most people don't really realize how bloated they can get from sugar and extra fats. lol. I should know!! Keep up the good work. You look great. :)
