This is What I ate Today – Friday, January 25th

Friday Favorites – Ninja Cooker Review

As I switch out my summer clothes for Fall sweaters and skirts with tights, turn off the A/C and flip on the heat and transition from jogging on the lakefront to busting out the Dance Central for the Connect, I also start to think of hearty stew and other crock-pot worthy, easy to make dishes. […]

Fall is quickly approaching and thoughts of comfort food are whirling in my head.  Hearty portions of Mac and cheese, beef stew, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, mashed potatoes and chicken pot pie* are likely in my near future.

Wednesday Weigh-in July 18th, 2012

Today’s weight 168 I’ve lost less than a lb a week if you average out my weight loss since I started dieting in February.  Not very encouraging, but at least the scale is moving in the right direction.  Cutting out down on the white flour, sugar, etc has been good, but notice how I say […]

Healthy and Low Calorie Options at McDonald’s

As much as I love Big Macs and Quarter Pounders sans the cheese, I’ve been staying away from McDonald’s for the past several years because, well, I love Big Macs and Quarter Pounders sans the cheese.  It was far easier to just avoid McDonalds than to go in on a regular basis.  I have gone […]

Weigh-in Weeks 5 – 7

  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve checked in because there hasn’t been much movement with my weight (or with me for that matter.)    The scale is starting to go my way! I’ve lost 5.6 lbs – super yay! and I’m almost out of the 180’s. What did I do different? 1.  I started […]

Weekly Weigh-in – 2012 Week 2

Well, I’m back on the right track and have taking some really big steps this week. The tracking was slow at first, but I’ve gotten into a good groove.  I took a tip from back when I did weight watchers and started counting calories in the evening — sooo since dinner is usually my biggest […]
