Hello! Remember me?
I’ve been many places since you last saw me. First, I was here:
CHICAGO! Why was I there? To see family… including my favourite little guy in the whole world:
(You see me hiding behind him? I got FAAAAAAT!)
Chicago trip included some really NOT healthy food. First, we had Mexican (I had shrimp tacos, chicken & cheese chimichangas, rice & black beans… Alex had the same but also had a chicken enchilada)
I also HAD to try THIS while I was there…
I had 2 pieces. Deep dish pizza… I love you. I am a thin crust girl at heart, but this was a little taste of heaven as well. I think it’s a good thing I cannot get you in Toronto.
The trip included plenty of cuddles and playing on the “farm yard” with my nephew (this boy is ALL ABOUT tractors!!).
Haha. He’s a clown.
When we returned from Chicago I spent 1 day by myself (Chicklet and my parrot were at my parents’ house while I was away)… I had a facial and massage (heaven). Afterwards I went to my parents’ house to stay there for a week while THEY went to Chicago to see the above cutie (their one and only grandchild).
Before we got back, we made a stop at a grocery store around the corner from my sister’s house in Illinois
I only grabbed a few things there. Overall, I was really disappointed I couldn’t find the new Larabar flavours ANYWHERE!!
So, now I’m back and working on getting back on track. I returned to the gym today for the first time in almost 3 weeks! I just did 30min of cardio. I didn’t want to go at all, but was really glad once I was there.
I have to get back into the habit of taking pictures of all of my food… I did grab one picture today!
Oh… and another one. MINI LARABARS from the States!
So… I’m ashamed to admit I’ve gained a HELLUVA lot of weight in the past year. My scale reached an all time high after vacation.
1. Gym 5 days a week
2. Track every day (hello iPhone app!)
3. Yoga in the AM (before work)
4. Finally try the 30 day shred (when do I fit it in though??)
I’m going to play around with my points. I did much better over a year ago when I ate a few points less than I was supposed to a few days a week.
Here’s what I ate today…
BF: banana (2), pb (2)
Snack: strawberries (2)
Lunch: salad with 1/4c chick peas (1), 1/2c ff cottage cheese (1), bunch o’ veggies (0), 3tbsp ff italian dressing (0)… Source Exotik yogurt (1), apple wedges with cinnamon (1)
Snack: green grapes (1), mini Larabar (2)
Dinner: flatout wrap (1), 2 wedges laughing cow cheese (2), light marble cheese (2), protein bar (3) – yes, random dinner. Didn’t know what I wanted!!
Tomorrow is weigh in. I’m starting fresh and counting last week (week back from vacation) as my first weigh in. I turn 32 years old in November. I plan to lose 32lbs by then!
Wish me luck!!
