My sweet tooth is acting up. Probably the cookies I’ve eaten lately. I don’t want to eat a bunch of junk. We have candy in the house for the boys to eat on Movie night. But I’m trying to stay out of it. Glad I’ve got some slightly healthier, lower calorie sweets. But I should try to stick to one a day to start with.

Katie and I celebrate with food. We went to Red Lobster with Christmas gift cards. I’m not a fan but Katie loves it.  I figured I don’t often get the chance to have lobster or crab legs so I should enjoy it. I’ve tried to refrain from a big supper in hopes that I’ll even out before I weigh in tomorrow.  I’m glad I enjoyed my seafood, because tomorrow is Meatless Monday!!!

Yes, just ten minutes. Better than nothing right? Also, I decided to weigh myself this evening and I weigh the same as Monday morning.  I know I am just supposed to weigh in the morning and not evening, but I got curious.  I was surprised and a bit disappointed. I feel like I’ve been eating better this week.  We’ll see what happens over the weekend.

1/8/15 “Snacky”

Breakfast
WaterCoffee
2 Egg omelet with ham, cheese and peppers

Lunch
Salad
Beef Stew with potatoes, carrots, celery, and some lima beans2 rolls with butter
Coffee

Dinner
Salad
Leftover bean tostadas
Chicken Nachos (Both with Daniel Plan sauce)Coffee (Yeah, 3 I know.  It’s been a cold day)

Exercise: NONE Like I said, its cold.

I’m starting to get snacky.  I want something to munch on. I have the popchips but I’m trying not to get to “in” to them.  They may not be worth the hype.  I’d go for trail mix but with Connor’s nut allergy I don’t like such things in the house.  My orange water and stivia has been a huge help in my drinking.  The orange and stivia flavors go really well together.  It’s sweet, but not high in calories, and I’m drinking lots more water.

My next challenge is going to be getting more sleep. No coffee in the evenings will help this. But I’ve been learning more about the need for proper sleep and how not having it can stress the body and hinder weight loss.  So, as I type this at 11:40 pm, I think my first goal will be a 11 pm curfew – and work from there.  Sweet Dreams!
