Hello everyone, happy Sunday :) This past week hubby and I have been very good on the food side of things. We decided that after super bowl we were going to be more disciplined and stop making so many excuses for what we do. I have found that the weekends can do more damage to me than the week, because on the weekends we often go out for dinner or just drinks and appetizers. Have you ever noticed that often appetizers are pretty carby? It seems that flat breads, or toasts for dip or fried things are popular. This weekend hubby and I stayed home and drank tea instead of wine while we caught up on  Top Chef and Dexter. I love this season of Top Chef  this season they are in Seattle and it's fun to see them go places that hubby and I have been. My only complaint about Top Chef is Padma, I can't stand her I find her condescending and annoying. I am pulling for Brooke to win it all.

I am afraid my computer might be dead (right now I'm on hubbys) I asked hubby to take it to a computer wiz at work to see if he can fix it, but hubby thinks the hard drive is fried :( Very frustrating, but it might be good for me to have limited computer access for awhile I know I waste a lot of time just playing around.

Well, I guess that's all for now it's time to get up and be productive.  Have a wonderful Sunday :)

Hello girls, sorry I haven't written in awhile I have tried several times to post but I kept hitting a wall. First of all is everyone excited for super bowl tomorrow? My hubby is and he is pulling for the Ravens I hope they win so he wins some money from his office football pool. One of my co-workers is having a party which is perfect because she lives three houses down from us. I am going to try a  recipe I saw on Ree Drummond's Pioneer Woman during the holiday season. You take a club cracker top it with a spoon full of parmesan, and then wrap it with half a slice of bacon and bake it on a low temp for about two hours. I know it's not very bfc friendly but it looks like a great dish to take to a party.

During last years super bowl hubby and I put in an offer on our house. The house was in short sale so it felt like it took forever but now that we are here it was worth the wait. Our first house is in a better neighborhood than we thought for our price range, we are super blessed. Hubby is still in school and working part time. I am so thankful that I have a husband who is such a hard worker, I have to remind myself of that when I am feeling sorry for myself for having to do pretty much all the house chores by myself.

This February marks the second year of doing the bfc and having this blog. In the past two years hubby and I have gone through phases of being really good and not very good with the bfc. I can honestly tell you that we both feel and look much better when we are being really good. The bfc has changed how I look and think about carbs and sugar and fake sugar. Starting Monday hubby and I are going to be a little more strict with our diet we are going to do the fast track awhile. We have found that after the holidays we like to shake things up and for us after the super bowl is just the best time to cut back. I personally have found it helpful to be realistic about when is a good time to shake things up.

About a week and a half ago I celebrated my 30th birthday, it was a great day my Mom and I got pedicures together, I had a massage and the family came over to my folks house for some Mexican food. Hubby made a huge bowl of guacamole and I pretty ate as much of it as I could shove in my mouth. We also had margaritas made with refine margarita mix that I got at world market for $8.99. I remember Amber had a post awhile back about the refine mojito mix. The refine mixes are made with stevia instead of sugar, everyone thought it was good and I think it would be worth buying again. Last week my weight was up due to the combination of too many chips and margaritas, but I'm not worried. We got back on the wagon of being good and hubby took the rest of the chips to work.

Refine Margarita MixI guess that is pretty much all for now I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend :)
