Treat Yourself!

Today was crazy at work...I kept getting calls about emergencies with my patients, I barely had a second to stop and breathe, and I was sorely tempted to stop for fast food today. Blame TOM but I have been absolutely DYING dying for chicken nuggets. When I finally stopped to have lunch, I realized I had a cheesy potatoes with chicken...wow! It really satisfied my craving. I, of course, added my usual allotment of hot sauce and really enjoyed! Thankfully I didn't give into my craving and stuck to plan, TAKE THAT CRAVINGS!

I had my last visit which ended at 4:30pm and I was not too far from the grocery store. Since I'm running low on lettuce and mushrooms (been obsessed with them lately). I also had pick up more fruit --pineapple, oranges, and some raspberries! Mushrooms, green pepper, red and vidalia onion, romaine, arugula, and...a special treat that I HAD to share!!

Over the last couple weeks since starting JC, I've been looking for ways to get some extra fluids. Well I've been obsessed with seltzer. I bought Polar Banana seltzers because they were on sale...THEY TASTE EXACTLY LIKE BANANA LAFFY TAFFY. I kid you not! The delicious taste of candy with NO CALORIES! I am savoring every delicious sip! I also got a pina colada one and I'll let you know how it is. Seriously, this is such a treat! I'm so excited.

Which makes up for the fact that I almost DIED tonight. I was coming out of the grocery store and I walked into a GIANT thunderstorm. As I was running to my car, lightning slammed into a jeep about 25 feet from me...it was one of the scariest things I've ever seen. Needless to say I ran the 50 yard dash in record time--pretty sure I'm eligible for the Olympics now. Now I'm home, sipping on my delicious seltzer and enjoyed a traditional lasagna for dinner. Lemon cooler cookies for dessert, I can't wait :D

Have a great evening! WI is two days away! FINGERS CROSSED!


  1. Goooooooood luck! tomorrow is also my weigh in day :)

  2. Sounds like you are doing GREAT on the plan! Way to fight those cravings. Since it's TOM for you, don't get flustered if the scale is up. It's just water. If it's down, that's a bigger bonus, because it should be down that much more by the next WI. I love your blog. Thanks for inspiring me to create a blog! I love it!

  3. Kate your to cute! I LOVE the Cheesy Pot and ckn! That is my all time fav lunch. I buy 2 a week but I think I am gonna do 3 because ugh so good.
    Good for you not giving into those chicken nugets temtations. Stupid fast food you know they make it so easiely available for people its so hard. I have to admit I haven't had a burger craving yet but I rly do crave buffalo ckn wrap with blue cheese dressing. Ugh! MMMMM so good.
    Good luck with your weight in mine is friday morn.

  4. Thanks everyone! Excited/nervous for tomorrow, praying for a loss!

    Jill - Have you thought about taking a chicken sandwich and throwing away the bun and using a wrap instead? What I would do is use the chicken and some hot sauce, like in No Thanks for Cake's recipe and put it in a wrap with cucumber, tomato, lettuce, I'd put in some thinly sliced jalapeno and then topping with a JC ranch packet or fat free bleu cheese??? This would be a perfect way to kill that craving while staying on plan!
