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 38, 149

And it took me five days to update again. Ridiculous! I really need to get my act together.

Quick recap! Late on Friday, my husband and our Afganistan-returnee buddy went to Trapper’s sushi. This was a HUGE test of will power for me. I love sushi very dearly, and while sashimi is *good*, it doesn’t hold a candle to a proper roll.

But the low-carb gods smiled on me. Junior, a super special awesome broski chef, made me low-carb handrolls. I have no idea what the calorie counts were like–probably high, since they were filled with everything delicious. But I didn’t get sick, so I figure I did well. :] Now I can eat delicious things and not be yearning to cheat.
Saturday, hubby had duty and our buddy went to stay with family. I did chores and chatted with one of my besties. I didn’t really get *that* much cleaning done… I’m not much of a housewife, to be honest. Hubby is always trying to get me to do dishes as I’m cooking and I do alright… until after we eat. I’m like “ugh, I don’t want to clean the serving dishes or plates…” and then I banish them to the sink, where I pretend they don’t exist until morning. It drives him crazy. I just hate doing dishes. >.>

I had bacon and eggs for breakfast, because I was lazy. Dinner was some cheap steak done in butter with zucchini strips.

day 33, 149 lbs

Back to trying to, mostly, update every day. Right! Okay! 😀

Yesterday was a very peculiar day. I picked up hubby from work at 6:30 am and grabbed his friend. We went out to breakfast, where I ate an omelette the size of a small house and three pieces of bacon. I can’t make omelettes, so it is always a treat when I get one. I’m not a bad cook, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do the flippy part. I’ve followed Jacques Pépin’s instructions, but every time I try they turn into crappy scrambled eggs. Ah, well, I just need to practise more. I guess.

I finished my playthrough on Dragon Age 2 with my hubby-clone-Hawke. My first complete male playthrough ever! Go me! 😀 Admittedly, it was much easier to commit when hubby wanted to see his doppleganger kick some ass. Also, the voice actor wasn’t terribad!

I had my remaining leftover burgers for lunch and then proceeded to fall asleep until this morning. I was completely beat. Hubby was a bit upset with me. He gets out of work and I spend all day snoring away… oops.

 

So, after a thirteen hour sleep, a nice shower and cuddles with Pooch, I made breakie! Breakfast was scrambled eggs and spinach, with a big shake of coffee and protein powder. 60g of protein in the shake, baby! OM NOM NOM.

 

I haven’t had lunch yet, still super full from breakfast, but I will probably have delicious animal flesh for dinner. Nomnomnom.

 

In other news, I now fit super comfortably into my size 7 jeans. This means I am down 2 pant sizes, and down to only two pairs of jeans that fit. I am trying to reach a 4 by the time school starts. I have until September 24th! Maybe I will take my measurements again next week. I am trying to avoid measuring myself daily, because it is awkward and I am lazy and it is a bit depressing. Also, I need a proper measuring tape. Trying to measure yourself with thread, then translate that accurately to a rigid measure is… difficult, to say the least.

I need to work on drinking WAY more water and taking photographs again. And maybe in another month, I’ll be able to take a progress photo… I *do* have befores, but I took them down about five minutes after posting them. Maybe when I have something awesome to compare them to, I’ll be able to post them…

 

Until next time. Happy eating!

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.
