Quote of the Day

There are only a few days left until my end of the month weigh in.  It feels like so much has been going on this month.  Last Thursday I turned 25 which led me to reflect on my weight loss journey and a lot of other things that have been going on with me.  I honestly feel blessed for all of the things that I have and the path that God has led me on. 


How much do you weigh?

How much do you weigh?  Seriously tell me.  I'm not trying to be funny.  I was just wondering...

Day 15 40 Pounds in 4 Months Challenge Update

20081925_effort.jpg (450×544)

Today is my first weigh in of this challenge and before actually stepping on the scale I was a bit nervous and excited. Everything so far has been going good for me.  I'm still working two jobs and doing my best to watch what I eat.  A few days ago I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a few items for my meals for this week.

Usually I sort of end up settling for a microwaveable meals but this time I decided not to purchase any in order to force myself to cook.  I cooked some some garlic roasted mash potatoes and grilled pork chops for lunch at work (I also made one of those quick and easy banana pudding but it was more of a for the family type of thing than myself) on Monday night, a grilled (George Foreman) hamburger and a cup of all natural yogurt on Tuesday, and grilled chicken breast with stir fry noodles for Wednesday night.

As I've mentioned before, when it comes to cooking I would described myself as....inexperienced.  There are some meals that I can cook for myself but to be honest I have never really had any interest  in cooking until fairly recently.

On to the results..........................................


Quick Challenge Update, Wendy's, and Other Random Thoughts

Just checking in with an update (:  Today is Day 5 and so far everything has been going well.  I have been drinking more water and moving more at work on the days when I'm not able to workout.  I have over a week until my first weigh in and I'm hoping that I will lose at least 5 pounds.

Apparently Wendy's has an age limit or weight limit on their Kid's Meals because I was interrogated a few days ago after I ordered one.  Usually I try to eat before I leave the house but I decided to grab something to eat with my mom.  Literally the girl at the register gave me a crazy look and asked me if I was serious and if I wanted the small drink that came with the meal.  It was kind of ridiculous/funny the way her demeanor changed once I explained that I was cutting calories (I know Wendy's sells salads lol) and I was going to drink water as a refill after I finished the small sweet tea. I'm actually proud of myself because I've been trying to make better choices about what I eat and usually I just drink water when I'm craving something to eat even though I'm not really hungry.

That's all for me.  Happy Labor Day and don't eat too much barbecue!
