Today started out with a Mocha Nut Fudge coffee

That ended up being breakfast.  

Lunch was leftover lasagna roll ups with a little extra nutritional yeast sprinkled on it. 

I made some no bake chocolate oatmeal squares and munched on one for a snack (I'll post the recipe some time!)

Dinner was baked sweet & sour chicken (found all over Pinterest).  And some veggie fried rice. Delish. 

I made a point of getting all of my water in today too. 

All in all, a successful day.  
I hope you had a great hump day!



The Results Are In!

Wednesday morning is weigh in day.  This was my 1st weigh in (aside from the initial last week) with my new scale. The results are promising. 


I've joined Jaime (from in her #birthdayburn (we're doing it on MyFitnessPal).  Originally my goal was to lose 5lbs.  I met that goal today.  My new goal is to lose 15lbs by Jaime's birthday (Nov 17 I believe? Jaime?).  

By Christmas I would like to lose 25lbs. This could be challenging come baking season!  I WILL do it though.

Today started out with a bang.  Up by 8am with the baby (he's a great sleeper), 2 loaves of cinnamon bread baked, kitchen cleaned, bottles cleaned... And bread cut up on to a plate for daddy to take to his office today.  

Somewhere after that I got tired and lazy.  I snoozed a couple of times and then binged on cheese, veggies & dip, skittles... And finally I landed on a bowl of lettuce & veggies with Mmmm sauce. 

Then my stomach got upset and I haven't eaten since!

I must plan better for tomorrow.  

Tomorrow is my first weigh in day too.  Wish me luck!

Dinner was leftovers tonight. I love leftover nights.  

I went over my calorie limit today.  But I tracked it all.  That's a start, right?


Starting Over Yet Again

Any SATC lovers out there? Maybe you'll appreciate the post title. 

Hello!  I'm back again. It feels great to be back.  I hope I still have some readers out there but I really don't know how many people blog anymore!

I've been gone for a while.  At least for a year.  You see, one year ago today I found out I was pregnant. I vowed to be healthy during pregnancy, but life happened and goals fell to the wayside. I did manage to keep my pregnancy weight gain to under 30lbs.  

I had a perfect pregnancy.  I was fortunate enough to love every minute of it.  Then, on May 29 (1 month & 1 day before my due date) my little boy decided to make his entrance early and in a whirlwind.  My water broke (surprising the crap out of me) in the middle of a very stormy night (doesn't he know mommy is afraid of storms?). He ended up arriving via emergency c section because the cord was wrapped around his torso and his heart rate was dropping with every (very painful) contraction.  He came out at 5lbs 5oz and a gorgeous full head of hair.  I only saw him briefly before he was off to the NICU and I spent 12 long hours apart from him on bed rest after the c section.  Then... I finally met and held my baby boy who I had dreamed of cuddling. 
Here I am... Meeting him and crying my eyes out (hello hormones!). My sweet boy. 

Fast forward to today. 

I can't believe it's been a year since I found out my world was changing. 

I love being a mom.  I had no idea I would love it this much.  I'm lucky to have a healthy & happy baby   So lucky.  And it doesn't hurt that he's pretty darn cute. 

Anyway... What I don't love is my post baby body.  That's why I'm here.  It's time to get back to losing weight!

I'm doing this at home & not paying anyone any money (hello mat leave income!  No top up for me... Just unemployment!  I'm tracking my calories on and reporting on everything here. 

If you're still reading... I thank you & hope you'll come back!
