Wow! I just have not been in a blogging mood. What's up with that? Well... here's the thing. I have to balance blogging with digi-scrappin' and sometimes (okay - most of the time) scrappin' wins! :) I just love the release of being creative!
Anyhow! I had this great post typed up (from my phone) on Tuesday night and then I totally forgot to post it yesterday. Then I go to do it this morning and guess what? It's not here! So I'm starting fresh!
My 'diet' per say has taken a turn for the better in the last couple of days. I finally got to do a good grocery run so I am pretty much sticking to the Atkins diet - well, kind of loosely. I'm not really 'counting' carbs - I've just cut them out for the most part. Only Splenda in my coffee (which is the norm anyways) and the only carbs I'm eating are pretty much vegetables. I did buy some tortillas the other day that are 5 net carbs for one and I tear them in half and use for a roll-up with turkey and a slice of cheese with a smidge of no-carb mayo! It's definitely one of my favorite snacks! The other is olives. I've had a whole little jar in like 3 days - but I'd rather over do it on olives than eat a whole peanut butter and jelly sandwich with my boys! While I'm making them sandwiches - I snack on the olives to keep me from even licking the knife and then wanting to make myself one! lol Hey! It works for me! And I think that's the key for me in this journey - to find what is going to work that I can stick with rather than even what's going to see the most results. Does that make sense?
I can tell you that right after this I'm going to set up a post with even some pics of what I've been eating... so maybe come back and check it out later this week! :)
I kinda hate that I have no pics for this post - its not very often that that happens! Wait - I'll share this one... nope - it must still be on my phone. Oh well! It was just going to be a big ol' glass of water! 'Cause that has been one of my best friends too! Yesterday I didn't drink as much because we were out playing in the snow and by the evening I was feeling like I 'had' to have some! It was kinda cool because usually I'm not a big water drinker! But I've been doing super good - having coffee in the morning and then water all day!
Okay - I won't keep you forever. Now to the kinda cool part of the post... my weight loss so far. Now I started at 213 on the 1st and haven't really been weighing myself since then because I wasn't doing so good I thought but when I weighed myself yesterday morning...
It said 208! Yay! Down 5 lbs! I'll take that! Of course last week was 'that time of the month' so that probably helped the numbers look better but anyways - its enough to keep me motivated for this week - that's for sure! :) I can't wait to see next week after sticking to Atkins (mostly) for a whole week! It should be good!
Alright - thats enough from me for now! I get long winded when I haven't 'released' in a while. I was supposed to fix that with the Bloggy Dare to blog every day. Oops! Hey - its a time of a million changes for me right now - I gotta figure out how to schedule it all out! :)
Til next time! Stay strong and focus on YOU!
