Friday - WOWEE!

I'm soooooooooo happy it's Friday. Oh man what a week!!! My stepdaughter is going to her first dance this weekend, she's a freshman and going to homecoming. I'm excited! We are going out tonight to look for a dress......she is a VERY picky shopper so I'm sure it will take awhile. But I'm excited.....I sure hope we find something tonight rather than run around the day of looking for a dress. She just got asked to go earlier this week...hence the rush! Ok yesterday -- I was HUNGRY today, wow was I ever. I was starving by dinner even w/ eating the beef jerky in the afternoon! I'm kind of mad at myself as my points are high -- but that's what flex is for right?? :) I have GOT to get to the grocery this weekend...I did pick up some fruit on a quick run to the store last night -- but I have no veggies. I have my list and next week lunches/snacks planned so should be good to go. :)

Here is my food:

My day Wednesday

Well as you can see below my day started out well but then - well we had a disaster at dinner. My husband does most the dinner cooking. He gets home usually 3-4pm every day. I don't get home until about 6:30pm (and I leave before him in the am -- jealous! ha) Plus he LOVES to cook! He has been trying to cook more healthy but sometimes he just doesn't -- like last night. He was making fried chicken strips with a new recipe for the breading...he wanted me taste one that he just finished cooking -- and OMG it tasted like some sort of cleaning product, I said did you put Ajax on this?? HA He said no there is baking powder mixed in with the flour. He said it can't be that bad...he tasted it and immediately spit it out -- then my stepdaughter said oh well I bet if you dip it in ranch it won't be that next thing I know she's over the sink spitting it out too! HA HA!! I looked at the recipe and it was 1tsp baking power to 1 CUP of flour. Well he used prob 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup baking powder! ha So a trip to KFC to get some chicken happend!! We ate our sides we made at home with the chicken!! But a funny story to always remember -- we all were laughing like crazy about this!

One problem I have is I never know what we are going to be having for dinner. I thought about starting my points at dinner -- but I just don't like that...I tried it and it feels odd to me. So I know I can manage by watching portion sizes and we usually have a veggie or/and salad at dinner and those are low points. Normally what he cooks isn't too bad...and I am going to start cooking more dinners to help bring some more healthy meals to the table. So going to work on that. Anyhow am going to be using Roni's table to track my food, I don't promise this every day on here but will try to do often! Thanks Roni for this, it's awesome!! Also she offers it using Twitter too! Which I'm taking advantage of as I can just text my food and I have a log!! Since last night I didn't enter food points when I texted it I can't use that table but did create this one using her table generator, check it out, it's cool!!

PS -- I'm Christy49rs on Twitter!!

D Day

Ok today is the day! I go weigh in tonight!! I'm SOOO ready to get back officially!!

I'm not so sure about posting my food every day as it's tough enough to do it for WW -- but we'll see how it goes. I'll try. :)

I know the weigh in will be rough..and I'm embarrassed...but oh well, your only a failure if you quit! :)

Work has been kicking my butt lately and I need to learn how to manage that AND stay on track. Usually when I'm super stressed at work -- I eat and want to grab whatever is quick and easy and not worry about being healthy or good for me. I need to come up with a plan on how to tackle that. I do bring my lunch each day -- but sometimes I just have to GET OUT and end up at a drive thru, or no time to think about dinner -- however usually the husband cooks so I don't have to think about it. So guess I have NO excuses huh? :)

Anyhow be back tomorrow!
