This Week's All Things Healthier Lifestyle

Oppppssss.....I totally missed last week. Sorry about that! How am I supposed to rely on you guys for support & encouragement if I don't tell ya what's going on.
The Weigh-In
So you see what happened there???? As of yesterday, I have logged in to My Fitness Pal for 275 days in a row. That's some serious commitment to weight loss, shaping up, & toning it, right?
I am down 34 lbs in that 275 days. I have been looking at the same number on the scale for a long time now. I am not as concerned with the number on the scale as much any more as I am with shaping up & toning it (my tummy that is). So on April 3, I decided to start measuring my waist, which I so wish I would have started doing this sooner cause now I'm all curious to see how far I've really come. From April 3 to today, I've lost 7 inches!!!! EXCITING!!!!!!!
The Food
Say hello to my little friend.
Okay, not little & not my friend!
I LOVE food. Here is where my problem happens when it comes to the healthier lifestyle. My only saving grace in this area is that I am awesome at portion control.
Here is just a sampling to represent how I have eaten in the last 2 weeks:

This is what my plate looks like whenever we have a Fish dinner.

Our last Fish dinner (not this past week, but the last), I had this for dessert. We don't always do dessert for our Fish dinners.

The Lenny's Club on Kaiser is yummy & under 500 calories. I'm able to eat this & skip the chips.
We went to Sugar Farm Catfish in the Barn....& I had dessert.
I made these Crescent Cinnamon Rolls this past Saturday for breakfast.
This was the girls at Olympic on Mother's Day. Usually when we go there, I have Salad, Grilled Chicken Pita, & Fries. I eat all of my salad & only 1/2 of everything else.

My steak dinner on Mother's Day.

We had dessert on Mother's Day, Crème Brulee. was yummy, but that's dessert twice within the same week. I must not do that!

At Five Guys Burgers and Fries on Monday, I was able to make a pretty healthy decision: Bunless Burger! I also only ate the fries you see plus 4 more, & that was it!

 Tuesday for lunch, I had the Thai Chicken Salad at Issy's. We also had fried pickle app, but I only ate one. I also only ate 1/2 this salad & saved the rest for another day.
 The Workout

I am doing okish with my workouts.....
Try to do my nice long walks to the Post Office....but I haven't gotten as many of these in as I have needed to.

Starting this past Monday, I am back to parking in the Post Office parking lot & walk all the way to that tan building on the corner up there.

  1. Damn! All that food is making me SO hungry ahaha.

  2. You are my hero for staying on track at Five Guys! I go there planning to do well & end up inhaling those fries. Ugh. Found your blog through Meg's linkup! :)

  3. Way to go with your portion control! I am so bad with that. I see fries and dive face first into them. :)


Thank you SO much for checking out my post. I will try my hardest to reply back to everyone that comments.
