8th Week BFC Day 5

Hello friends, hubby and I can't sleep so we are up early (5:30) what is wrong with us??? We both but in a full week at work.  I have truly been working my butt off at my job. Yesterday they orientated me in a new area and I was very nervous, but things went fine everyone is very nice and helpful.  My tummy has been hurting all week, I have a nervous tummy hopefully as I get more comfortable I will feel better.

 Well, I did much better with my food at work yesterday, I stayed away from the pretzels and nutella! Yay!!! Nutella is sooo yummy, but very belly bad, in 2 Tbs it has 21g sugar. I used to eat it out of the jar with a spoon.... craziness. Work food was good, but  hubby and I went out for dinner and I drank too much. Hubby asked if I was gonna share with y'all how bad I was, and at first I said no....but I changed my mind. Because I am not just doing the bfc as a diet to lose the 10-15 lbs I want, I am trying to make this a lifestyle.  Today I am back on the wagon, I have forgiven myself and I'm moving on. Hubby and I talked this morning and we decided that the next time we go out for drinks/dinner we are going to make a plan before hand and stick to it. I think that is a good plan, because if you don't have a plan after several drinks you just want to keep the party going and keep drinking.

Breakfast: tuna sandwich with 2 slices Ezekiel 4:9 bread, 1/2can tuna with mayo, black coffee.

Lunch: stir-fry with chicken, portobello mushroom, 2/3c edamame, napa cabbage, baby bok choy, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds. I mixed the stir-fry into a salad with romaine and arugula. I have decided I don't really like arugula that much and won't buy it very often, and I won't mix stir-fry into a salad again, it looked and tasted weird. I ate half of my stir-fry salad for lunch and a hard boiled egg.

Snack: rest of salad, the rest of the can of tuna, 1 hard boiled egg, black coffee.

Dinner& Drinks: 1 glass red wine before dinner, 2 Irish coffee's without sugar with dinner, 2 beers after dinner, a grilled cheese sandwich on sour dough with lobster in the grilled cheese, fries, 2 bites hubbys tacos.
I think I went waaayyy over my carbs with drinks, bread and fries...but I don't think my sugar was to bad.

Anyway, today is a new day and I have forgiven myself and I'm moving on. I think hubby and I are going to have a nice weekend together. We have to go grocery shopping and I plan on getting plenty of belly friendly snacks to have at work so I don't cave to the nutella...or pig out on potluck food at work. Hubby has some bday money and we are going to go buy him some clothes, I don't even remember the last time we bought him anything that wasn't work clothes and he needs/deserves some new clothes badly. I hope everyone has a nice Saturday, and I want to thank all of you who have blogs for the inspiration/encouragement you give me as you share your triumphs and struggles.


  1. Good morning Miss Katie!! Yes, it is good to have a plan when dining out. I know myself if I am not prepared I can totally cave to things I shouldnt have and adding alcohol to it brings down inhibitions and then its a yum-fest! Been there, done that. Glad to hear you are forgiving and moving on. We are human and that happens. We just cant let it happen all the time or we will be spinning in neutral.
    Have a fun day with your hubby today shopping!

  2. Hi Katie, One of the problems for me in the beginning was going out. I tried to no do that very often for the first few months.
    Also any type of alcohol is bad and very fattening. I know you are both young and probably like to party. I try to only drink maybe a glass of red wine once in a great while now.
    We have to give up a lot of things to be on The Belly Fat Cure.
    Don't worry about the dinner..You didn't eat bad. Today is another day, so go have fun with hubby. You're doing great! :-)

  3. Hi Katie, I just started following you blog. I have been on the BFC for almost 7 months now you can check out my blog too if you want. I really like how you can be honest what you ate. When I was a member at WW I could never be honest what I nobody could tell I was cheating since I never lost any weight. But with the BFC it has been different, I have no desire to cheat. Happy Weekend!
