<-- I'm cocked & loaded and ready for Monday!!! I went grocery shopping today and got what I needed. I loaded up with lean cuisines and Healthy Choice meals. I got the Healthy Choice baked meals and I have had them before. They are very good it just sucks when they are not on sale!
Here was my shopping list: Bananas, Oat Revolution BetterOats maple and brown sugar 100 calorie instant oatmeal, medium eggs, Sara Lee 45 calories & Delightful wheat bread, 9 lemons, 5 Healthy Choice meals & 5 Lean Cuisine meals. That should last me until next time! I already have green tea, extra virgin olive oil/spray.
When I walked in the store I saw grapes that were on sale and was going to get some and then I stopped myself because for me; the less options I have at home, the better. I know grapes are good for you, I love them; I am just trying to strictly stick to one way right now. Plus it never hurts to exercise your will-power muscle! I just said to myself; "Marilyn, just get the bare minimum. You don't need the extras." - If I want at snack I will just have to be happy with toast or a banana! I'm so serious about this right now that I am getting myself excited!
Today was my first morning going without coffee. I'm still here and haven't been taken away to the looney bin so I say my day has gone pretty fine without it. I know I will probably still drink coffee through the rest of my weight-loss journey but I will only do so on the days when I know I really am going to need it. I haven't had any kind of caffeine today so that explains this headache I have. I took some ibuprofen but I think I'm going to make myself a cup of green tea. After all I am going to have to get re-acquainted with my green tea since I will be back to having it 5 times a day. It tastes like grass water (who's with me on that?) LOL BUT I suck it down because I know it's good for me. I have said this many times before, I swear by it!
<-- This is what my kitchen looks like right now. We are undergoing construction & are finally installing a new sink, faucet & countertops!! I can't wait to see the finished product. The sink in this picture is the new one we got (just seeing how it fit before we install it) - At this point in the process there is no going back! I will post a picture when it is all finished :-)
The fair is coming to town this next week/weekend. I was planning on going but I don't know if I will. That's my first week back on my stuff here and the only reason why I ever really went to the fair was for the food!!! They have a demolition derby on Saturday and I might go to that. We will see! I know getting Michael to go is like pulling teeth so I might hit it up with a friend if I do end up going.
ALSO this happened last night!!!! KIRSTIE ALLEY re-tweeted one of my before and after pictures on her Twitter! How cool is that?! It literally made my day/month/year! Her doing this motivated me BIG TIME! If you click on this picture it will take you to the link.
