18th Week BFC Day 7

Good morning everyone!!! Today is looking like it will be another great day. I've already done pilates and zumba while hubby is sleeping and now I am making some coffee. Yesterday was such a nice and relaxing day, I went to walmart in the morning and got random things I needed. I bought some ghirardelli intense dark midnight reverie 86% cacao that came individually wrapped, perfect for keeping on the go snacks. 4 pieces have 5g of sugar, but 1-2 is perfect and I think 4 would actually be too much.

After we took our nephew home we went for a walk in the park it was so fun to see what is in bloom now we are going to try to go every week to enjoy the park. I feel so blessed to be where I am now, this time last year I was getting ready to have some hardware taken out of my knee because it had worked it's way out of the bone and was digging into my thigh which made it hard to go for walks. Now I am hardware free and I am building strength back in my knee and hips. When we got home hubby had an appt so I went and sat in the park across the street listened to my ipod and did some journaling. Having a safe place to get your feelings out is so wonderful and I feel refreshed and focused.

We had smart and delicious burritos for dinner and then we walked to the store for a bottle of cab sav. The smart and delicious tortillas have totally grown on me, they make such quick breakfast's, lunch's and dinner's. I love quick, healthy meals especially now that I often get off of work after 6:30.

How are you all doing? How is May going? Are you staying on the wagon, or has the busyness of life gotten in the way? Life will always be busy, and taking the path of poor food choices will always be easiest. If you have fallen off get back on and try again. Make small realistic changes to help get you to where you want to be. Don't give up!!!


  1. Katie, how do you get your hubby to always go on walks with you?? Mine never will. Well, maybe if his but was on fire.. LOL.
    I am doing really good with food, you know me - hardly every cheat. I really love those tortillas also.
    Have a great day :-)

  2. May is really zooming by. I take it a meal at a time. More than that makes me feel like maybe I won't be able to keep on keeping on. I try to keep my meals really simple, and if I make a poor choice, I do my best to make my next choice a better one. And, like you Katie, I am so grateful for everyone who blogs and a little help from my friends, it makes all the difference for me. (()) to you.

  3. Thanks for all the words of inspiration! So you are saying if I eat a few more of those tortilla's I will get used to them? Hmmmm:)
    I am so proud of you for your good exercise routine. I know it would make a big difference for me. 3x a week isn't enough right now!
