day 44, 148 lbs

Yet again, another delay. I blame my hubby. He had the weekend off and we ended up having loads of adventures. Ah, well, it was fun. c:

Thursday I ended up throwing a salad together for lunch. Baby spinach, oil and vinegar, feta, pine nuts, tomatos, and salami. Yuuuuum. I went and picked apples for an hour and brought a few dozen to my women’s group. I had an apple and was almost overwhelmed by the sweetness. Wow. So damn good. I had a slice of my flognarde as well.

day 32, 149 lbs

What a week! I am utterly exhausted. My mum and little sister flew in on the 15th for a quick vacation. My mum and I have never been especially close, but it was nice to have her over. My little sister is SUPER tall now! She’s 10 and almost five foot. It’s insane.

On Wednesday, I ate a lot of pork rinds and munched on nuts. I made a chicken dish for dinner, which was quite yummy. Thursday, we stayed at home and tried to (rather unsuccessfully) beat the heat. I made spaghetti squash alfredo with cheap beef. Friday we went to Poulsbo and Silver City for dinner. I had the steak… nomnomnom. Saturday we went back to Point No Point and spent the whole day there. We had leftovers primarily for dinner.

Sunday was grilling day! I made my super awesome delicious burgers. My home-girl made an AMAZING cabbage dish thing that kicked all of the asses. So good. I almost got my sister to try some… but she’s extremely fussy, so it didn’t work. :[

Monday, we went to Scenic Beach with Pooch! Lots and lots of fun. We went out to dinner that evening with hubby at Bremerton Bar and Grill. I ate another steak, but it was delicious so I was happy. Nomnomnom!

Tuesday was our big trip to Seattle! We started the day at EMP. We played instruments, wandered the exhibits, and ventured down to the Sci-Fi Museum. My little sister loves Star Trek, and she was really excited to see the Captain’s Chair. They had a little Portal exhibit, too! It was very cute.

After EMP we went to the Space Needle for lunch. I had some salmon and spinach and salad, then a good portion of the crab/lobster salad my mum ordered. After that we went to Chihuly’s Garden and Glass museum.

HOLY.

FUCKING.

SHIT.

That place is DOPE. MIND BLOWINGLY AWESOME. I was just awe-struck. Wow.

WOW. FUCK SHIT. DAMN.

Anywho. We went to Lush and I got some Cynthia Sylvia Stout and Retread for myself. Going to order some nice gifts for my mum and sister online, since I didn’t want to ship them via luggage. We went home later that evening and had leftover burgers and cabbage. Yummmm.

I drove them to the Airport on Wednesday and had a salad on the ferry. Ten bucks for a salad and a water! What a fucking rip off. I was too hungry to wait, though. :[

I weighed myself for the first time in weeks this morning and was very excited to see 149. Finally! I haven’t really been counting calories and logging my meals the last few days, but I intend to get right back on that. :] Vacation is over! Back to work!

day twenty four, 151 lbs

Nearly a week has gone by since I even thought about my blog .Whoops! I got super, err, busy. Right. Busy.

…okay, I’m just lazy. So, recap time! Whee!

Friday night I had a gal-pal over for dinner and a movie. I made Sour Cream Pork Chops with grilled zucchini and onions. They turned out awesome! Sour Cream is such a useful, delicious item. It is probably my go-to for quick and easy dinners now. I had another one of my cupcakes, because I am a bad girl. ;D Then we went and saw The Dark Knight Rises. Gal-pal hadn’t seen it yet and we couldn’t have that. The movie was probably even better the second go round, to be honest. Probably because I didn’t have to pee through the last hour and a half.

day nineteen, 153 lbs

What a wonderful few days it has been! Tuesday night, hubby and I went to his mums place for dinner. It was very nice, not having to cook and having such a wonderful meal. I went over on my calories, sure, but it was an absolutely lovely meal and evening. Momma made spaghetti and red sauce for hubby and the others and a divine Caesar Salad (no croutons!) for me. I had some mozzarella and salami with it and it was delightful. The fresh bread was so tempting… but I stayed strong! I kept chanting in my brain “carbs are gross, carbs are gross”. Eventually I will start to believe this!

She made a wonderful keto cheesecake dessert for me. The jam preserve definitely has too much sugar, but it was a nice treat. She gave me the left over ones, so at least I can scrape the blackberry jam off the top and enjoy them at home. Mmmm, cream cheese…. yum!

I went over my limit again on Wednesday, but I was absolutely ravenous. Not sure where this hunger came from, but I was only over by like… 200 calories at least. For breakfast I had bacon, fried eggs, and some protein powder in my coffee. I nibbled on some celery and peanut butter on the side, as well. Yum!  Read the rest of this entry

day sixteen, 152 lbs

Hi friends! What a wonderful Tuesday!Quick recap, Sunday night was pretty amazing. You’d have to live under a rock not to know about Curiosity landing. I stayed up and watched the livestream from NASA and JPL and had a whale of a time. Hubby and puppy even sat with me during the seven minutes of terror. My poor heart was racing like crazy, just waiting for the news. I have always a love for learning, especially the planets. I blame Sailor Moon. Hubby and I started cheering when we got the news that Curiosity was safe and we eagerly waited, hoping against hope for pictures. I definitely cried a bit when I saw the thumbnails. Wow. Wow. It was so surreal, knowing that those pixels are from the surface of another planet. I was hoping for some Prothean ruins. A girl can dream, right?

Monday was EVENTFUL! Hubby had duty, so I was taking him to work in the wee hours of the morning (okay okay… seven am.) since we only have the one car right now. We chatted about adopting another doggie and decided we want to go look at the local humane societies and rescues this week. Hubby grew up with three Red Nose Pitbulls and he has wanted one of his own for years.

I was initially a little reluctant about having a pit. I’ve had cats my whole life and I was never much of a dog person. Plus, I was only vaguely aware of Pitbulls being “vicious” and wasn’t keen on them. But hubby encouraged me to look into it and told me all about growing up with his dogs. I’m a little nervous, but Pooch has definitely warmed me up to the idea. Pooch is *very* rambunctious and it can be difficult keeping up with him, especially when I have chores to do. A little sister might be just what he needs. I can see how having a buddy to play with would be really nice, especially once I start going to school. :]

Anyways, I dropped hubby off and headed home, running through my day in my head. Then some idiot decided to try and murder me. This van decided that, despite having a completely open right lane, the left lane was superior. The problem was, I was right next him, in the way. “What a bother” he must have thought, as he merged anyways. Luckily I slammed on the brakes and the car behind me was far enough away to brake themselves. I swerved a few times, and eventually got my car under control.

Holy. Shit. Balls. I was so angry and scared and surprised that I burst into equal parts tears and expletives.

day twelve, 153 lbs!!

153!!! I know it is mostly water weight but it is SO EXCITING!! I squealed like a dying pig when I saw that on my scale  this morning. 140, you are so close! Soon my driver’s license won’t be such a lie! Hooray!

So today has been a pretty awesome day! I made a Cream Cheese Pancake today! Oh my goodness was this amazing. I’ve never liked pancakes. They were always too heavy and turned my stomach. But this… this was a delight. Did it fall apart as I tried to flip it? Yes. Was it the most delicious pancake I had ever eaten? Absofuckinlutely. It tasted like fat angels making love on my tongue.

No photograph, I’m afraid, because it definitely didn’t look pretty. I need to work on my flipping technique. More butter in the pan beforehand, I think.

 

Lunch was leftover Eggplant Lasagna and some Baken-ets Hot’n’Spicy Pork Rinds.

Holy. Shit.

 

I had never eaten pork rinds before. I can’t believe I’ve gone 21 years without this amazing snack in my diet. It is fluffy and light and so fucking flavorful. It has the perfect amount of heat, forcing me to drink more water and leaving my lips tingling. Wow. Just… wow.

 

Tonight hubby and his mates are doing Friday Night Magic, so I’m going to go play the fuck out of some scrabble. I will probably get my butt handed to me. Home-girl is a scrabble MACHINE. And apparently we are having liver! Ooh la la!

Until tomorrow! Happy eating!
