Gracie thanks for telling us about the grilled chicken from Aldi's..I bought a pack but haven't eaten it yet. I looked for the salsa but didn't see it...where is it located in your Aldi's? I know they sometimes carry different items but I wanted to see if I missed it..

It's in the refrigerated section before the meats. They have different kinds - my favorite is the sweet onion salsa. I had the medium and it's spicy! I love the grilled chicken nuggets - super easy for a quick meal.

Have a great on plan day Gracie!..

Me too! It has drastically cut my weekly grocery spending down. I was easily spending over a hundred a week on food..now I can go there and get a lot of items for way under that.

Yesterday was a good on-plan day but I feel like I'm retaining water. My guess is the heat. The scale was wonky today, I'm either down 1 or 1.4 lbs Either way, down is down I need to focus on more water today to flush my system. I also need to get to the grocery store - I'm out of good supplies!!! I don't seem to have any time because of work and football/cheerleading

Lots to do today - everyone have a great day!

Good morning Scale is slowly moving in the right direction. I am down -9.0 lbs so far - that's after 9 VLCDs including my non-protocol Saturday. I'm again very close to the 180's Friday night is a girls night out with a bunch of us gals that have kids all around the same age. My bestie is going as well as about 10 other moms. We are heading to a local bar that is having either a DJ or karaoke (yuck). It should be a good time. Saturday my DS has his first football scrimmage - praying he does okay and stays safe. I'm always scared during football season.

My menu yesterday was pretty simple. I had cottage cheese for lunch and a grilled chicken salad for dinner. Easy peasy. Not sure about today - I'm not hungry yet so I'm just drinking my coffee.

Hope y'all have a great day!

Hey peeps. I had to take my DS to the doctor today because he had an incident at football last night. He started getting black spots in his left eye and couldn't see. I was so scared! The doctor said he's in perfect health and thinks it was dehydration/heat/sleep/food all combined. So we are on strict orders for good rest, lots of Gatorade, and carbs before practice. I'm so grateful it wasn't anything serious.

Today the scale STS as yesterday. I guess that's better than a gain. I was stressed last night after he was having his vision problems too. I was doing good today until my DD brought me down a homemade donut that she made all by herself in her little donut maker. I didn't want to make her feel awful and I ate it. It was just a little mini one It was birthday cake flavor Hoping the scale doesn't punish me tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Oh that's scary, glad he's okay. My youngest want to play football and I'm too scared to let him LOL. I hope he have an uneventful and successful season. Aww, how could you turn down your baby's donut...too cute.

My DS has been playing since he was 7 years old. I loved watching him play when he was that little!!! They are like little bobblehead dolls on the field. Their big helmets outweigh their little bodies You have to remember that the kids they are playing are the same age/weight as them. At least in our league we have weight limits. Don't be scared! It's a lot of fun and they have very good equipment now to protect them DS was QB for a few years and now they've moved him to running back because he's the fastest on the team. I would rather have him at QB because the running backs get tackled the most

Oh, and the donut was yummy I printed out your post yesterday and then she came downstairs with the donut. I realized how important it was to her for me to eat the donut she made. She could care less what I weigh - she loves me no matter what!!!

I've been struggling the past 2 days. I'm still down 9 lbs. but I haven't been following my plan. I'm exhausted - I work all day then go up to the field every night for 2+ hours. Then I come home and have to bathe my little one, make dinner, and then get the kids to bed. I haven't been sleeping well either I need to get a good night's rest!!! Tonight is girl's night out but I feel like I was run over by a truck

too funny...LOL! You're right, I may break down and let him play. He's not begging so I've been able to conveniently forget That's why I posted it, it's so true about time being short and we may never get some of these moments again....like your daughter thinking and caring enough to give you her precious donut. How can you say no...no 'diet' is worth seeing disappointment in their eyes...ever. I wish we could begin to see ourselves the way others see us. You're right, they could care less about how much we weigh and even less about a number on the scale. WE place value in this..and nothing is wrong about doing it to feel better about ourselve and be more healthy but knowing that fine line of where to place it is key.

Your schedule has my head spinning...you're doing so much and to concentrate on Omaha naturally comes second. Maybe take an interruption if it's too much for you now? I know you're suppose to only do it after 21 days but I do question some of the information from the original plan... You have to take care of you..or you will become sick. Are you up for hanging out if you're too tired? Hope you feel better.
