Monday! And NTTC'S Giveaway!

For those of you who don't follow No Thanks to Cake you're in for a real treat! Kelly is a Jenny Craig soul sister who's a total inspiration! She's 15 pounds away from her goal of losing 91 pounds...and she looks fantastic! She has a giveaway for a Weight Watcher's cookbook. And hey, who couldn't use a new cookbook to spice things up? I sure could...I'm struggling with my goal of finding two new recipes to make for this week! Have to find something new and exciting and fun! If only it were that simple! Check out the link to the giveaway here: http://nothankstocake.blogspot.com/2012/01/my-favorite-cookbooks-and-giveaway.html Do it! What have you got to lose...besides weight? And we all want that!

Last night I made more bad eating choices and my stomach was not feeling good. I do not eat out very often and a whole weekend of it made for a very upset tummy. This morning I was very nauseous and I couldn't eat. I drank some water and went along my day...and by lunch time, I was starving. I made a Jenny Craig chicken marsala and it really hit the spot! I'm planning on some hummus for snack, and then a boca chick'n patty for dinner...it's the last one in the box. OH NO! I definitely need to get some more!! And I'm trying to stay on the lower end of my calorie range today and tomorrow but I'm expecting a gain on Wednesday. But I'm not stressing about it...I had a great birthday weekend, there's ups and downs to every weight, and I'm back on track now! WOO!

Goals are going well. Still haven't been able to get any time to read a book but I have been doing my deep breathing and tracking my food on Sparkpeople. Wearing my pedometer today as well and getting very close to 2 miles. So far it hasn't been a terrible Monday. It's a bit grey and cold and we're expecting ice (please no!) but nothing major.

Happy Monday all and I hope it's a great one!
