My sister asked me yesterday if I weighed in.  The answer to that?  Hell No.  While I know I’ve gained weight, there was no way I wanted to see what the number was on that scale.  My plan is actually not to weigh in again until August 1, so these next three weeks are going to be “get back to where you were mode.”

Since I got home so late from the airport Sunday night, there was no chance to go grocery shopping.  I ended up swinging by McDonald’s on my way to work and picked up some oatmeal to go with my watermelon I had leftover in my fridge.  The summer blueberry oatmeal is already gone, so I got the fruit and nut.

Breakfast comes in at 313 calories, 4.6 fat, 62 carbs, 5.3 fiber and 5 protein.  I only ate one slice of the watermelon, the rest tasted . . . moldy?


I forgot everything yesterday.  Work out clothes.  My good camera.  I ended up having to stick around for work anyway for lunch, but I have my clothes packed and ready to go today – our high today is only 82 – love it!

So guess what I had for lunch??  A Lean Cuisine!  I am sure these are Hannah’s – I found them in the door of our downstairs freezer.  I grabbed a bag of broccoli that I froze to bulk up the lunch – I cooked the broccoli separately and tossed it in 2 tablespoons of spicy thai chili sauce, then mixed that in with the lean cuisine – which was chicken fried rice.

It actually wasn’t too bad, although the chicken was a bit dry – this whole bowl comes in at 321 calories,4.3 fat, 55 carbs, 4.4 fiber and 14 protein. 

Since I ate lunch at my desk, I made out our grocery list. Tony and I had planned on going to Wool Street for dinner, then hit up the grocery store after that.  On Monday’s they have $5 burgers.  But we drove in and there wasn’t a single car in the parking lot and all the patio furniture was on one side of the patio.  Turns out they are closed on Monday’s during the summer. Sad smile

So we ended up at Wings, etc.  I wasn’t planning on getting wings, but their Monday special was .49 cent wings.  We actually think that these wings taste better than Buffalo Wild Wings.  However, I always ask for the sauce on the side – that way they stay crispy.


I ended up eating six wings and about 1/4 of my half order of fries.  Dinner came in at 698 calories, 45 fat, 19.5 carbs, 1.8 fiber and 46 protein.

I am happy to say that I am prepared food wise for the rest of the week.  I think I’ve indulged in enough bacon grease breakfasts and biscuits, although I did refrain from making sausage gravy one morning when I was in Virginia. Open-mouthed smile

I made this soup for my lunch today, which I adapted slightly.  I actually left out the mint (not a huge fan) and added spices.  I’ll post my version of the recipe tomorrow.

So today is a new day – a day to get back on track and hopefully string enough of those days together to undo some of the damage I did.

Show of hands – do you like chicken wings?  My brother and sister can’t eat any meat on the bone – what’s wrong with them?

Make it a great day! Open-mouthed smile
