Bread is calling to me....

Today has been very successful so far. It started bright and early at 5:30a.m. with my kiddos waking up. ;-)

I made a green smoothie with fresh strawberries, 2 bananas and spinach, however my box of spinach went almost all bad over the weekend. =( I just bought it on Thursday, but it was so bad I had to pick out the good leaves and there weren't that many so the smoothie was fairly watery. My kids still drank it down, and I had probably 15-20 ounces.

I did my Jillian video; it wasn't as hard as I was expecting and I even used my 3lb weights. WOOT!

Then we took a walk to the park and played for an hour and walked back. For lunch I had a chicken breast with BBQ sauce. We all took a nap and when I woke up I was STARVING. Everything BREAD sounded sooooo good. I thought about making a homemade loaf for dinner tonight. I thought about the leftover pizza in the fridge. I thought about the Cheetos in the cupboard. I thought about the banana bread on the counter. All things bread were calling my name; no, they were YELLING my name!

I got up and made the kids some apple slices with caramel sauce and had 1/4 of an apple myself--sans caramel. Then I ate an orange. Then I came on here. =)

I'm still feeling pretty hungry so I think I'll go eat another chicken breast because I do not want to eat bread! Why? Because I did gain a pound today on my weigh in. =( I'm at 167. But, honestly, I wasn't sad to see that number. I was glad it wasn't higher and I *know* it will come off with the hard work and healthy eating I have planned.

So, so far so good today! Let's keep this ball rolling!


  1. Way to avoid the carb monster! You didn't mention anything about drinking some water...I keep hearing that when you are "hungry", just drink a glass of water to make sure is isn't feelings of hunger...if the hunger returns, then eat something you were doing!

    Great job.

  2. Yep, keep the ball rolling RA! Good job having filling, healthy food on hand so you don't resort to those Cheetos! I'm glad you guys had a good weekend. Any luck finding a house?

  3. Woot! Way to go!

    I hate when my spinach goes bad. I always buy a big ol' box of organic baby spinach at Sams & sometimes it will last nearly 2 weeks, other times it seems more like 2 days & it starts to give off that know the one. :(

    Hope you have a great week!

  4. Hi Ruth Anne!! That smoothie sounds delish!!
