*Finally* back down to 156.  And it’s that day!!  You know, that day I love so much.  Cussin’ Friday!  It’s going to be a good day.  Chiropractor visit, and of course I get to see KO tonight.  Yippee!  Oh and the icing on the cake – it’s a three day weekend.

I made another cake for work last night almost completely screwed it up, but not quite.  Note to self:  that container that you thought was powdered sugar was self rising flour.  How stupid is that.  I was exhausted last night, that’s my only excuse.  So I made a pineapple pound cake with what was supposed to be pineapple glaze, but the glaze is what I used the self rising flour in.  I tossed the glaze (thank goodness I tasted it – my reputation is on the line!), and threw together a basic glaze.  I was not happy at all that it was not exactly what I had in mind.  But worse things could happen.

My food:  chicken/apple sausages for breakfast.  Turkey, briscuit, and green beans for lunch.  A piece of quiche for dinner.

Off to seize this Friday – hugs and love!

Oh dear God I made it through one more day of this week.  Thank you.  I managed to get ALOT of work done despite the fact that I seemed to be hitting roadblocks every step of the way, every step of the day.  How, you might ask yourself, did I manage to fumble my way through the day?  That’s a very *good* question!  And of course I have a very good answer.  And this is how it goes…

 Assume a meditation pose frequently throughout the day, thumb to middle finger, hands resting on crossed knees. Eyes closed. Breathe in, breathe out. Chant: Oooohhhhmmmmmmmm gettin’ paid.

And that, my dears, is the secret to conquering the work day.  Yes, indeedy. 

My food:  chicken/provolone sausages for breakfast.  Fajita salad for lunch with green salsa.  For dinner I made my man  delicious  ham sandwiches with pesto, havarti, tomatoes, and lettuce, accompanied by broccoli salad.  Dessert was berries with whipped cream sweetened with stevia. 

I have to come up with a nickname for my man….thinking….thinking….hottie?  He is a hottie but that’s not it…thinking….thinking…K.O., I think that’s beyond perfect.  For Knock Out.  As in out of the park baby!  From now on he shall be referenced on my blog as K.O.


Have a blessed day xoxo

I did stick to low carb yesterday – but with my mood (I’m feeling a little off this week, not tremendously so, but off none-the-less) I suspect I’m coming up on my TOM.  But I’m not positive on this because my last one was so bizarre.  Time will tell.

My food:  chicken/provolone sausages for lunch.  Salad with shrimp, scallops, and crab for lunch.  For dinner I made the most incredible redfish on the half shell.  I seasoned it up with cajun seasoning and baked it in the oven, and then topped it with a creamy seafood sauce, and served it steamed spinach.  I took one bite and I swear I saw the face of the Virgin Mary.  YUM!!

Not feeling this week – work is stressful.  I’m visualizing, right now, putting it in a bubble and blowing it away.  All the issues and tasks and projects float away from me and dissipate in the breeze.  Ahhh, better.  Today I will leap tall buildings with a single bound.

My food was NOT low carb, today I will do better.  Breakfast – chicken/provolone sausages.  Lunch was delicious pho, YUM!  Dinner was 1/2 turkey sandwich.  And that’s that.

Hugs to you peeps!

I’ll take that pound!!!  I’m seriously happy it’s not more.  That pound will come right off with a lo carb day or two.  Today I’m going to back to restricting myself – it was a wonderful few days of indulgence.  But the butt stops here.

Trying to bolster myself for work today, I have a little damage control to take care of.  Completely seperate from the damage control I did last Monday *sigh*.  Oh well.  It’ll be ok.

My meals:  huevos rancheros with refried bean and tortillas.  No lunch, I was so freaking full from breakfast.  I had a couple of lemon cakes (those little one bite cakes) from Costco, while I made yet another cake for work (this time it was chocolate mint cake, it looks delish).  Then one piece of pizza.  I jumped into the deep end my peeps!

Have a beautiful, blessed Monday.

Ok my peeps, I have to admit that’s it’s getting more challenging for me to post every day.  I will do better.  The main reason it’s been a struggle lately is because, suddenly, unexpectedly, I HAVE A LIIIIFFFEE!!!  And when I say that I mean I’m distracted from my routine in the most wonderful way.  Of course relating back to my new man.  I did have a chat with him over the weekend – he had lost 50 pounds last year and and I not only told him I had too, but how I did.  Which is no surprise to you, because you know by know I’m an open book.  Now I don’t have to feel embarrassed to tell him I have to post on my diet blog 😀 I will post every day.  I will post every day.  I will post every day.  Even if it’s boring trivial posts lol.

I’m giddy from my weekend – I had so much fun on my date last night.  We went to *the best* steak restaurant and then to the symphony.  It was the first time I’ve been to the Majestic Theatre and it was…completely…and thoroughly…majestic.  I was like a 5 year old, looking around, up and down in wonderment, except for the smoking hot dress and big boobs.  And what a handsome, sweet man I was with.  It was a joy to hang onto his arm.   If it sounds like I’m smitten with him, it’s because I am.  Completely.  After the symphony we went *back* to the steak place and had coffee, dessert, and a big fat cigar. 

Yes, I love cigars.  Imagine that.

I have no idea where I’m at with my weight.  It’s probably not good.  But it’s okay!  I’ll weigh in tomorrow morning and face the facts.  I have splurged this weekend.  I had carbs for dinner last night (crostini with cream cheese and candied jalapenos, squash casserole topped with crackers, 1/2 of a dinner roll, and a few bites of this amazing mocha creme brulee), and then again for breakfast this morning (huevos rancheros with refried beans.  And tortillas).  My guilty confession.  Ok, maybe it’s not so guilty.  It was all intentional.

 I hope your weekend has been as amazing as mine, love and hugs!  xoxo

Yes, more splurging yesterday.  Ah well 🙂  My day at work was incredibly busy but was nicely broken up by a lunch date with my man – it was a nice interlude between the crazy morning and crazy afternoon.  It helped me through the day to say the least.  Also another good thing that happened to me yesterday, completely unexpected – the person that I want to hire into my department told me they are going to ACCEPT the job – this is after unbelievable roadblocks, delays, etc.  I had given up on him accepting the position, and would have been completely disheartened over it.  I know he is the right person for the job (plus I desperately need help).  All I needed was the universe to make it happen, and it did.  Ask and you shall receive.

My meals yesterday:  the usual chicken/apple sausages for breakfast.  Lunch was tomato basil soup and a salad (no protein and boy did my blood sugar drop mid-afternoon).  Dinner was chips and salsa, and 1/2 an order of nachos.  And margaritas.  I had dinner with my soon-to-be work partner-in-crime to discuss his concerns on accepting the job.  So it turned out to be an informal celebration of sorts!  Woo hoo!

Sweet Thursday, and sweet Friday follows.  Gotta love that!  xxoo
