Wacky Wednesday!

Hi everyone!!

This week has sort of flown by. I've been so busy I've hardly been able to find a minute to breathe. I've been doing really well with tracking though, hooray! I did splurge a little bit on Sunday when I went out to dinner with the girls and we went to see Pitch Perfect (hilarious movie, btw). But I got right back on track and kept plugging along. I can already feel a difference in my clothes and they're becoming looser, which is good. I peeked at the scale this morning and I did NOT like the number. I need to really focus and work to get back to where I was and lower! But I'm feeling more motivated!

Eating has been good. I had baked potatoes in the fridge for an easy dinner and I bought some more to cook today. I love grabbing one out of the fridge and dressing it up with carmelized onion and some reduced fat cheddar! It's a really easy, quick dinner for me! I also have been making taco salad with turkey meat, which I have some of leftover. And I love doing this sort of fajita bowl thing with shredded lettuce, a perfect portion chicken breast, peppers, onions which I season with a tiny bit of taco seasoning and then I put light sour cream and a 100 calorie pack of guacamole. It's like a mexican restaurant opened up in my house! Love it! And if I'm missing calories or need to amp up the protein, I put in a sprinkle of cheddar too!

So for now I'm staying on track, feeling good. Today is my day off so my mother stayed over last night and we're going to head off to Target and shop our hearts out! Plus I need some more fresh veggies! Yum yum! Things are going well! Hope they are with you too, lovies! <3

Sunday Funday!

Hi all!

It's been a really great weekend so far! I've been doing pretty well with tracking my food this week and staying on track! Tonight I'm going out to dinner with some friends and then we're going to see the movie Pitch Perfect! It looks HILARIOUS, I can't wait! I've also already been on the Outback Steakhouse website and decided on what I'm having. I decided on the Filet & Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie with grilled asparagus, which fits perfectly into my plan for today.

This morning I got up around 7 (this is the latest I've been able to sleep in for quite some time!), had a nice cup of coffee while I read my paper and then I made myself a healthy egg mug! I don't know what's going on this weekend but I felt like Connecticut was deserted. Yesterday my mom called me up and asked if I wanted to do some shopping with her so we went out and hit Target and I got some produce at Stop and Shop. Instead of it being PACKED (as it usually is on a Saturday at 10) there were only a few people in Target! Same thing at stop and shop! Usually it's hell trying to get things accomplished on a Saturday around here...people must be on vacation or something!!

And speaking of vacations, I've been planning a Girl's Weekend with my sister. Nov 2-4 I'll be in Philadelphia hanging out and having a great time! We already signed up for a ghost tour, which looks to be amazing! And hey, we are going to take a nice long walk and enjoy our time around the city! It's going to be great!

Lots of fun things are coming up, I'm not going to let work stress or anything derail me! I hope everyone is having an amazing, blessed Sunday.

Yes, I am still alive...

Although recently it's sort of felt like I died. It's been so stressful on me lately. Work, family and friends, and other pressure on me has been piling up! Then my computer crashed...dead hard drive, ugh. I had HP send out a new one and I actually installed it myself. I also had a horrible migraine that knocked me on my ass for almost a week. Eating has been pretty bad lately although over the last week I've been tracking again and starting to get things back in order.

I don't really know what's going on with me lately. I am falling back into old patterns with the "I Don't really care what I eat" attitude. Could have to do with stress (I'm a notorious stress eater)! I'm trying day by day to get myself back in order and man, I need to do it! My scrubs are getting tight, so are my clothes...I just don't like this at all!!! So I'm back, I'm blogging. And I need to be accountable!!

I have been cooking healthy things and keeping them in the house. One of my FAVORITES has been Thee Cheese Tortellini and Mushrom Soup! I've been making this and eating it and it's been amazing. I also add a big package of baby spinach and that really makes it for me! I've also been doing baked potatoes with low fat sour cream/onions/cheese. Today I had a Veggie Delight from subway for lunch since I was running like crazy. This morning I had to be at my first patient by 7am which meant I had to leave my house by 6:30am! When I got up it was sooo dark and rainy, I needed a coffee and I was out of the house by 6:15am. That makes for a REALLY long day, I'll tell you! I'm fighting a headache right now and I know its a combo of stress and such. I'm also drinking a TON of water, filling up my cup and working on hydration too. This is my time, I need to succeed! And this week, so far so good!

I hope you all are well, I've missed you and I'm terribly sorry to neglect you so! <333
