Another Wednesday Gone By

First... My results from today's weigh in:


 Today started out with an epic smoothie:

In the blender goes: spinach, banana, green apple, pineapple, oats, ground flaxseed, egg whites & coconut water. 
 
Today's coffee was meh:


 
Lunch was yummy:

Toast with avocado, cheese & tomato. 

Greek yogurt (chocolate & vanilla):

 
 

Dinner was chili.  No picture.

So, we have exactly 5 weeks until Christmas.  My goal to lose 25lbs by then may not be realistic. We're looking at over 4lbs a week. Instead, my goal is now to eat mostly clean & exercise 30 min at least 5 times a week. I'll just lose as much weight as I can!

I'm going to try to post my photos every day too 😊

The Results

Well, the results were not in my favour today.  



 It's okay.  Onward & upward. 

Today started out with a smoothie again. 


It had banana, peach, mango, strawberry, cucumber, chia seeds & coconut water.  It was yummy. 

When I finally got to lunch it was toast with spicy avocado dressing, tomato & cheese.  With baby carrots & tzatziki on the side.  Delicious!


Dinner was leftovers from yesterday. 

What wasn't pictured was the 2 little rolls I snacked on as well as the kettles chips & OMGs I consumed!  But... They were small portions at least!

Happy Thursday!

Mission: Accomplished

I reached 5000 steps today!  Goal accomplished!

I didn't actually exercise.  These steps were from being busy all day & not having a chance to sit down. 

Today started out with a yummy smoothie. 


 It has pineapple, banana, green apple, spinach, coconut water & chia seeds.  It was so very yummy. 

I didn't take time for lunch today.  I ate 2 little white dinner rolls in between making baby food & doing laundry.  

Dinner was a Pinterest recipe.  Loaded baked potato casserole.  It was just okay.  It's pretty bland.  I made some Asian salad on the side. 


I'm ready to call it a night.  Wish me luck for weigh in tomorrow!

Weekend Gone By

You know what I did today:

•cleaned the basement
•shopped for a new kitchen table
•had my first steaming hot bath in a year
•slept in
•cuddled with my baby boy

I didn't cook all weekend. We had leftover coconut chicken curry that I made Friday.


I bought a couple of new k cups this weekend.  And I love them!!


Overall, I've been making healthier choices and managing to stay away from sweets.  Last night was an exception.  I had light vanilla ice cream & made my own crackle sauce with melted coconut oil & some chocolate chips.  Holy moly was it good! Unfortunately I don't appear to have taken a photo!

I think this week's goal will be to get my water in every day.  And get my step count up to 5000.  As of now I'm only getting in about 2500 a day!!

Make it a great week!!

What I Ate Today

The smoothie returned!  Hooray!!

It was pineapple, banana, green apple, spinach & coconut water.  And it rocked my world. 

Lunch and dinner were the same as yesterday.  


 


 The only thing different was the salt & vinegar roasted almonds I made!

I confess.  There were also a few skittles.  But only a few!

Happy Thursday!  Anyone have weekend plans they care to share?  We are having our first quiet weekend since the baby arrived in May!! Woohoo!!

Oops

You know when I don't blog that I've fallen off the wagon for one reason or another.  The good news is that I'm back!

This is short because it's late & the baby is sleeping... Therefore I should be as well!

Here are some photos of today's food!  See you tomorrow!
