Good evening everyone!!! I had a really nice weekend, Friday night hubby and I had a nice pork chop salad and some wine and watched Top Chef, Saturday while he did homework I went over to my folks and did laundry and hung out with my Mom and Sadie dog (my Dad was out of town visiting his brother) My Mom and I had some nice conversations, I told her more about our dreams for getting a house and once we have a house getting a puppy and eventually having babies. My Mom is such a neat person, you guys would really like her. She and my Dad are doing the FT, she has lost 2 lbs and my Dad has lost 15 lbs :) My Mom doesn't really need to lose much her goals are similar to mine she wants to slim down and tone up. We have very similar bodies.
Today was my weigh in day that's counts and thankfully it was better than I expected, 135.5 lbs this week compared to 133 last Sunday, but during the week I was between 135-137 lbs. So all in all I gained back 2 lbs of the 3 lbs I lost after the holidays...but I am looking at it as a glass half full kinda thing rather than glass half empty. What I could have done better was eaten less carbs Superbowl Sunday because I drank red wine and ate chips and dip (I know I ate more than a serving of chips and a serving of wine) and during the week I polished off a bag of chips without thinking. I think the morale of my story is it is important to pay attention to portion size of high carb things like chips especially since they slide down so easily, I think that is a big reason I try not to keep them around. it's way to easy to eat too many before you realize what you have done. And chose between drinking red wine or eating chips or other carbs, not both at the same time.
As I said in my last post I am back on track and I am getting enough fiber in, my #2 problem is also back on track. Hubby and I have been eating a lot of flax seed muffin/bread things things that I first saw in Minichick's blog. We have been taking 1/4 c ground flax meal, 1 egg, 1/4 tsp baking powder, a small amount of melted coconut oil or butter, mixing everything in a dish and then using a spatula to spread it onto a salad plate and baking it for 2 mins. the result is a delicious flat piece of flax bread that I have been using for breakfast or snack. Sometime this week I will try to share pictures.
I hope everyone had a nice weekend, I have lots of love and appreciation for all of you :)
