*~Enjoy the (LC) Journey~*

So here I am, starting my journal. I couldn’t think of a good title, but “Enjoy the Journey” came into my head, so that is what I am going with for now!

The last few days (okay, weeks..) I have been slipping, but the scale hasn’t really shown it. I had Mexican TWO nights in a row this week. The second night was not my choice, but my mom and sister invited me so I obliged. The first night I had chicken fajitas without tortillas (I ate the beans, and some chips/salsa.. BAD me). Last night I had a taco salad and again, some beans, and chips and salsa. Now, I didn’t have a lot of chips, either night, but still bad choices.

My weight was up after a BBQ this weekend (margarita and potato chips... BAD again) so here is what my daily weight has done:

Monday: 139.8
Tuesday: 137.6
Wednesday: 136.4
Thursday: 135.6

Tomorrow I would LOVE to see 134. I am going to eat on track today/tonight and see what happens. Weekends are my downfall. There is ALWAYS an event, and liquor is ALWAYS involved. I have a few drinks, lose my inhibitions, and end up snacking on bad food. I can deal with some water weight from drinking, but it’s the bad food choices that I need to put a stop to. This weekend I have a bachelorette party on Saturday.. there will be drinking, but probably not a lot of eating, since we are going bar-hopping downtown. Hopefully lots of dancing to burn off more calories!

I really want to see 130 on the scale… that would be fabulous. I moved my goal down to 125 because that is really my ultimate goal. I am 5’ 2” (short) so I could go down even further. I see people on here my height with their goal weights at 110 or less and I think “geesh I am a fatty” -- but really, I am a curvy girl and I have NEVER been real thin. I like my curves. I know, I should not compare myself to others, but I still do it. SIGH.

Today I have had to eat:
B (7am): coffee, HWC & CO (one serving of each)
L (1pm): leftover fajitas (chicken, green pepper, onion) and a cheddar cheese stick

Dinner is boneless pork loin from the crockpot. I put it in this morning with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce -- I know, I know, it has real sugar -- but I pick my battles. The pork will be accompanied by a veggie of some sort, with cheese or butter. I am doing the IF/window eating too -- so I break my fast (other than coffee, hwc, co) around 12 or 1, then stop eating at 8. I REALLY think this is helping me. I will probably have coconut oil bark again tonight before my window closes, and would like to go for a walk with the pup around 830.

I will check back later to see how well I stuck to my plan -- thanks for listening to my rambling -- if anyone is out there!

Well this morning I was 135.2. Not 134, but down from Thursday, so I will take it!

Dinner was OKAY... the pork was super dry and over-cooked. I am a terrible cook. It clearly cooked too long! I had broccoli with cheese/butter, and my hubby had loaded mashed potatoes. I wasn't even tempted to have a bite!

Around 9 I had 1/2 of a CO/cocoa/EZ Sweets/pb treat. Probably about a T of coconut oil and a teaspoon or so of PB. I was afraid that I would get hungry as dinner was pretty light, but I wasn't really, surprisingly.

Food for today:
B: Coffee, HWC, CO
L: I was scrambling this morning... the plan is: cheddar cheese stick, 4 slices of turkey lunch meat, a hb egg. For snack I have 1/4 cup of almonds if I need it.

Dinner -- no clue. I need to get better at planning. I will have to come up with something and thaw some meat when I get home. We always run into this issue when we have no plans for dinner - then we end up going out. We are trying to get better!!! But it's hard. Sure wastes a lot of money going out all the time. Last month I noticed we spent over $800 between groceries and restaurants. So ridic!!!

Happy Friday to all my LCF!!

I realized that turkey lunch meat makes me wanna gag.

I don't know why. If it was on a sandwich, I would have no trouble gobbling it down. Ick that was gross. I ate those slices... but slowly.... and individually.. It was even worse dipped in mayo. Alternating bites of cheese stick was the only thing that saved me from caving and buying a salad at the cafe. Wow, that is so weird. Now it's time for the hb egg to get the taste/feeling out of my mouth.

Can't believe it's almost 1pm already - the day has been flying by!
