It's all about the calories

I won't talk too much about the last few days. Let's just say there was a dinner at Charcoal Pit for my husband's b-day, a dinner at Friendly's - just because. Another dinner out Saturday when we lost power for several hours. Suffice it to say I haven't lost any weight this past week.

This morning I weighed 140.5 lbs. Today was a good day! Watched Most Eligible Dallas while finishing 3 miles on the treadmill this morning. I had some interesting food choices, but overall, I moved more and ate less.

Breakfast - yogurt and a banana
Lunch - Chocolate covered almonds and a chocolate chip cookie. I know, it all started out with a trip to the cafe for a diet coke - they were giving away cookies with every purchase. I do NOT turn down free sweets. And for some reason the chocolate covered almonds seemed like the perfect compliment to the cookie. I had packed my lunch, but I knew this would tide me over.
Late Afternoon snack - apple, 1/2 tomato with a tiny slab of fresh mozzerella, a tiny bowl of whole wheat pasta with a pesto sauce. (this was part of what was supposed to be my lunch that I decided to eat around 4pm as I was pretty hungry).
Dinner - 1C portion of my crock pot concoction - Pork tenderloin, diced tomatoes, white kidney beans, brown rice and taco seasoning. Low cal, tasty and good for you (minus the sodium from the seasoning - but that's part of what makes it good!)

According to my fitness pal app, if today were like today, I'd weigh 135.5 lbs in 5 weeks.

I just need to put about 100 of these days together. That's the hard part.


  1. What fitness app do you use? Keep up the good work. I am right there with you on this dilemma. If it is in the house I will eat it & hubby keeps bring home 1/2 gallons of my favorite ice cream.

  2. I LOVE - costs about $10/month. is a close second and is free. That's the one I'm currently using.
