Keep on Truckin’

Okay how is this fair- I don’t feel like I am dieting at all! Yesterday when I took out my salad my coworker was like THAT looks delicious- did you make that?! Let me see this was AS she was eating her lean cuisine… I told her yup, just grilled up some shrimp last night, cut up all the veggies, and tada! :D She was like wow the shrimp look BEAUTIFUL. It was SO GOOD and SO FILLING and I ate it all :)

THEN I started to crotchet- by the time my lunch hour was over I was like no! I want to do more- my co-worker is a great teacher and she’s making me love crocheting even more!

I realize the yarn I bought for the baby blanket is not enough so I have to find MORE of it! CRAP CRAP CRAP- I’m going to be combing all the local walmarts for it lol. If I don’t find it I’ll probably just use this yarn for something else than make a baby blanket later.

Last night hubby made dinner- chorizo. Which is some type of sausage. He cooked it with egg and honestly I didn’t care for it too much- after we ate I said never make that again lol. I told him it was good but too fattening (which it was). I had three rolled tacos using the leftovers of my la tortilla wraps, my carbs are still very low for the day even with those wraps. I had two with chorizo and one just veggies. For the THREE freaking ounces of chorizo I ate it was FULL OF FAT! Never going to eat that again- and I won’t miss it. I took a picture but I forgot it so here’s a generic picture of what it kind of looked like:

I’m one of those wives when her hubby makes dinner, I don’t complain, he also agreed that his chorizo isn’t as good as the restaurant’s (omg how much fattier can a restaurant make it?) so he won’t make it at home again. I said only cuz of my diet would I prefer he not make it again :)

Then went online for a bit and took care of some things, then cleaned up the kitchen while hubby played the new Halo game. I told him I was watching Biggest loser at 8 and he turned it off just before that. Then I sat down and got comfortable and watched biggest loser while crotcheting, 1.5 hours in my hand was getting tired so I stopped :) My bird again was looking at what I was doing but she was scared of the ball of yarn lol. Silly butt!

At 9:15 it was so funny hubby all of a sudden gets up and then says “OMG GHOST HUNTERS” and runs into the hallway- I yell after him “It’s TUESDAY!” Ghost Hunters is on Wednesdays btw, so then he sheepishly walks back into the living room and says “nevermind” lol.

On biggest loser I won’t say much but I was very proud of everyone :) they did a great job IMO and I admire every one of them- I wish I could lose 20 lbs a week! Then it’d take me three weeks to get to goal- it’s funny but I’m too “thin” to get on that show. I doubt that they would take anyone under 240 lbs from now on, a great majority of the contestants this season are well over 300 lbs.

So besides that dinner the diet is still going well, and I haven’t been snacking, didn’t weigh in today either, I want to surprise myself Monday- so no more weigh in’s till then. Oh and TOM’s going to be here tomorrow so hopefully that doesn’t affect me too much!

Have a great day everyone!

    :lol: with the hubby and Ghost Hunters :)I’m REALLY glad SB is working so well for you :) It’s great when you just click with your diet! You should post pictures of your crocheting projects!

    I used to eat Lean Cuisines for lunch everyday. Now I make salads and soft wraps with la tortilla low carb tortillas - my calories are lower and it’s so much more filling and delicious! Those frozen meals are convenient, but nothing much more!

    Chorizo - spicy mexican sausage. Yew-ouch! I literally can not eat it. It makes me ill. I love spicy, but I think combined with the high animal fat content and it just throws my system into chaos. I can feel my stomach churning just thinking about it!!

    You are doing great! I remember the first time I realized that I was too skinny to be a contestant on BL - I was sorta bummed and totally excited at the same time! I’d love to be on that show, but I’m happy that I don’t “qualify” anymore! In fact, watching last season’s results show, it hit me that I’m about the size of most of the women’s “afters”. I’m an after (even though I’m not MY after yet) and that was an amazing moment! Probably why I love that show so much… well, one of the reasons!

    I lvoe love chorizo, but stopepd eating it for the same reason. If you have a trader joe’s enarby, look for soyrizo! http://www.elburrito.com/soyrizo.html It doesn’t taste exactly the same, but the nutritionals are better than real chorizo

    Funny about hubby. I wish men understood that when they do goofy stuff like that… it makes them even more endearing. I am tired of the posturing male!

    I’m glad that your motivation is making a comeback too and that the pounds are starting to peel off. YAY! :D

    wahoo, you go woman! What a nice post, and I agree about Biggest Loser. This is only my second season to watch but it looks like they just set the bar a lot higher for week two, a feat which will no doubt be remembered for all time. I sure do enjoy your pics, even the generic ones, and I’m feeling the same way on sausage, even when someone else buys and cooks it, thanks but uh… maybe next life? So good to be back and see you doing so well. And crocheting! yowza! Delita
