Coffee and Crumpets

Good Morning Everyone!

I had a really good weekend. I had the pleasure of having my husband home the entire weekend, and we didn't have ANY plans. You have to understand; this is rare. VERY rare. So it was so nice to just *be* together and putz around the house, doing little projects. We had a really great Father's Day.

I thought FOR SURE I was going to be up a lot today. I really didn't curb my eating at all yesterday. I made an omelet with sweet baby peppers, pastrami, cheese, and egg whites and I also made some toast out of Challah bread I had made earlier in the week. I smothered the Challah with butter and honey and enjoyed it with my coffee... with full fat, full sugar creamer. Then later we went out as a family and Josh took me to this specialty coffee house.

Oh my stars and stripes, they made their coffees with chocolate syrup. They looked at me like I had just sprouted 7 heads when I asked if they had sugar free white chocolate flavoring. It was like a specialty chocolate place and they used full on liquid chocolate in their drinks. It was like drinking melted chocolate with a bit of coffee mixed in. It was very good, but SOOO sweet. I didn't finish it all.

Then I snacked on some trail mix and we had chinese for dinner. SO, needless to say after all that food, I thought I'd be fasting today for sure. But, to my surprise, this is what the scale showed me this morning:

And the reason I was so shocked to see this number (besides the obvious copious amount of calories I consumed yesterday) was that on Saturday I was up to 156.2. So I actually LOST weight from the day before.

Anywho, the diet has definitely taken a back seat to my health right now, and I'm just very glad to be maintaining so well. I go to Arizona this week, and I start my next round of HCG drops on Monday (or maybe Saturday, if they get here in time) as well.

I will NOT be binging like I did last time. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat what I like, but I won't be going out of my way to eat insane amounts of calories like last time. It bugs me to no end that I could be 2 pounds lighter if I hadn't gained them during my binge days. Besides, I am almost up 2 pounds from my ending weight, so that counts, right? ;-)

I'm not sure if I'm going to lug my laptop with me to AZ, so I may or may not be posting. I leave tomorrow to take my kids back to my family as they are going to care for them while I'm away until Josh can get off work and take over.

I'll catch ya on the flipside!

Oh, and for the record... I've never had a crumpet before. I just like the word. :-D


  1. Well, you have obviously lost serious weight to be maintaining like you are. Great results RA. Have a great trip!

  2. Glad you had such a good, relaxing weekend!! :) Ours was crazy... we're reminding ourselves not to over-schedule again. ;)

    Oh, no! I forgot your 5 questions last week when I was doing them!! :)

    Well, better late than never. :)

    1. What is one (or more) of your favorite movies?

    2. Tell me about your house/apartment. Do you rent, own, what? Do you have a "dream home" or even just a "next home" in mind for when it's time to move on? :)

    3. What is your biggest struggle as a mom right now?

    4. When you need a moment of quiet, what is a good toy or activity that entertains your kids at their ages right now? Or do you have to get a babysitter to have a moment of quiet? :)

    5. Speaking of babysitters, do you ever get them, and if so, what do you do during? A date? Or something else? :)

  3. I've had crumpet before... I wasn't impressed.

    Good job on the weight maintenance! I'm glad to hear you had a good weekend.
