Happy Monday!

I was down half a pound this morning, which makes me happy! Slowly but surely, I'm getting there.

The weekend was busy but good. We only did a day trip on Saturday, so that was a LOT of driving, but we made some excellent contacts. One man in particular who is going to help us find a house to rent.

I also did well with my eating. Not 100% free of grains and dairy, but pretty darn good. In the last 5 days I've only had the following grains/dairy:

A latte on Saturday. Yeah, a lot of milk but I didn't finish it and it was only 12oz.
One slice of pizza.
Half cup of ice cream.
A couple croutons and some caesar dressing.

Not too bad, for me. My problem is this... NUTS. I have taken to snacking on them since they are an "ok" food for me to eat. But they are really high in fat, and they go down easy, which can really add up. SO I am reigning myself in with those.

I also confiscated a menu from Applebee's. We ate there Friday night; I had the Paradise Chicken salad and it's really good. Anyway, I may have been influenced by the Bahama Mama and Jamaican Freeze I had, but I totally stole the drinks and desserts menu. Why, you ask?


Ha ha, I felt like such a rebel, because I'm totally going to post the whole thing on the web so the world can see how ridiculously high in calories the food is. And I feel even more like an SSSS (super stealthy sneaky spy) because they tried to hide it in the DESSERTS menu, way in the back.

Anyway, we had a great weekend. On Sunday I woke up to a cute note from my husband on the mirror, complete with a picture of us from our wedding. On the 28th of this month we'll have been married 6 years. =)

My kiddos are hungry and so am I, so I'm off to make breakfast. Have a great week, everyone!


  1. I got married on the 28th too...December though. Glad your weekend went well and that the eating is in check! Your 1/2 pound loss proves it. I've been thinking about you and praying for you as you go through the steps of picking and moving and then resettling.

  2. You are doing so great in the midst of all this turmoil!

  3. Oh my gosh, it's in the DESSERT menu?? I've looked everywhere for their calorie content especially, and can't find it. I'm going to check it out next time. Hmmmmm....

  4. Congrats on your loss. I am HAPPY for you :)
