OMG my prayers have been answered! Isn’t it funny when you feel God closes a door he opens a window? My window is wide open and I’m feeling good! I feel like things can’t get better right now *knock on wood* The weight seems to be coming off, the South Beach isn’t too bad to follow, I’m feeling good about myself, I have a wonderful husband, AND I got my BIKE RACK ADAPTER IN! OMG YES IT CAME IT CAME!! I was so excited lol. I’ve also got a wonderful mother who is coming home November 18th, I’ve got my beautiful sister who I love, and my brother who is coming over this weekend (I haven’t seen him for like a month) and so on. I’m very thankful for all I have 🙂 Okay I’ll stop gushing before you guys barf on your screens lol.
I wanted to go bike riding YESTERDAY but we had a client come over for two hours- it’s a small job but money is money! Before she came over I made a YUMMY dinner, thin slices of steak marinated in worchestire sauce and onions. Grilled that on a flat-top and then made roasted vegetables on the side which included onions, green beans, asparagus, and zucchini 🙂 Then I also made a large greek salad from the South Beach book- it actually came out very good. Everyone said dinner is delicious and I’ve got some leftover grilled veggies for dinner tonight! I coated the veggies in olive oil and put some salt, some pepper, and then some garlic and onion powder and roasted at 450 for 25 minutes- DEELISH!
My hubby rolls his eyes when I take my pictures but I just ignore him- he doesn’t understand how much this blog and you guys mean to me- I’ve said it before I’ll say it again! Without you guys I would have given up by now and been bigger than 235. 🙁 I am also thankful for all of you- for telling it like it is, for being supportive, and so on! I love you guys! *BIG HUG* You are all inspirational to me 🙂
Last night I also made my lunch for today, I got 1/4 pound of shrimp, coated it in garlic and onion powder, grilled them up and put them in a small baggie. Then chopped up all the veggies, put the wet components in seperate baggies and stuck it all in one container. I also boiled an egg for my breakfast- yesterday was a bad breakfast day cuz my cheese somehow spoiled! I took one bite then spit it out it was so bad 🙁 So I had an ounce of cashews for breakfast, not the best breakfast… but I had nothing else. I did actually eat a few bites of my lunch to tide me over as well. But I’m all set for today! 😀 I don’t mind working a bit harder to make a hearty lunch for myself. I prefer this any day to a lean cuisine!
I also feel good not going online as much at night- it’s funny cuz I am a moderator of a forum and I just quickly pop in for half an hour, look around, take care of any private messages and abuse reports, then leave. The admin says I’m doing great so it works for me!
Yesterday I found crocheting for dummies and omg I learned so much! I wasn’t holding the needle properly, I wasn’t holding the yarn properly, and so on. I made a really long chain and am going to show it to my coworker tomorrow- get some input from her then I’ll start my first piece- I promise to show it to you guys when I am done 🙂 I think I’ll make one coaster then move on to dish rags/towels. Then my blanket! My hubby wants to keep the blanket for OUR baby- but that probably won’t be for a little while- I’d like to enjoy being thin for a little while! Broccoli was fascinated with my crocheting, just sat there ON MY HEAD and watched the needle and yarn go, got on my chest and kept watching, it’s adorable, it’s like your child watching you do something in awe like “what ya doing mama?” lol. Course then she wanted to PLAY with the yarn which is a big no-no! But then she was content to go hang out with her BOYFRIEND till I said bedtime- at which they both whined to me- I swear- like children who don’t want to go to bed :p
As for my sister and her bf- they are back together. Apparently he came over the night before last and he was crying and she was crying and so on. When I got home he came out and was like hey what’s up and of course he doesn’t know I know anything so I was nice to him BUT I could TOTALLY tell he’d been crying cuz his eyes were puffy. I know my sister loves him, I can’t say 100% he is cheating since I got it from a secondary source- he swears up and down he didn’t. BUT I hope if he did he’s learned his lesson and will never do it again. Unfortunately this is my sister’s relationship and I can’t do anything, if they work out their issues great for them- but if they don’t I hope she leaves.
Here is yesterday’s eating- I don’t like to waste food so I finished up the squash bake, it’s probably better for phase 2 but I think it’s passable to finish up 🙂
Have a good day everyone!
