Daily Eats – Day 23

Just a few new things. Almonds, Craisins (in an attempt to kill my Hot Fudge Sunday craving. It worked….for now. For dinner Mr. Gaunt made me Collared Greens, Sausage, Lima Beans, and Eggplant. Amazing.

Gym today was super lame as ALL the cardio machines were full (I hate my gym) so we did the rowing machine. We will see if my shoulders want to fall off tomorrow. As soon as our contract is up next month we are going to try out a different gym.

Daily Eats – Day 22

We spent the whole day at my moms painting her bathroom. We all went out to Mexican, which is a gut bomb, so I had cereal for dinner…lol. Back to the gym tomorrow..yay!

Non fat Vanilla Latte. Grapefruit. Fish Tacos. Chips and Salsa. Glass of Sangria.

Dried Fig. Lunch Meat with Mustard. Special K. Coconut Juice.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, it flew by for me, but I managed to get a lot of things accomplished. I’m moderately looking forward to my new position at work this week, which is a nice change over dying of boredom.

Daily Eats – Day 19

Tomorrow is Friday. Yipee! Not because the weekend will be here soon, but because supposedly all this ice and snow is supposed to melt on Friday, with a high of 45. I’m over the snow. Sooo over it. My car is useless in the snow, Mr. Gaunt and I don’t work the same schedule, so I’ve been depending on my mom for rides. Today I took ANOTHER snow day, which sorta sucks, but did give me time to sign up for online Quick Books and get all of our business finances together, which is awesome.

Bagel Thin with 1 Egg and 1 Egg White, Mushrooms and Greens (I only ate half this as it wasnt that yummy). Non Fat Vanilla Latte. Thai Lime Cashews.

Turkey Burger with mushrooms and a little cheese on 1/2 a Bagel Thin. I used the other half under that Veggie Pattie. Sweet Potato Fries. Dried Date with Coconut.

Mr. Gaunt was really cold all day, so instead of going to the gym we went to the pool and swam laps and hung out in the hot tub. It felt like a good workout and a nice change of pace. I’m nervous about weigh in this week, so I’m going to try extra hard to eat good, small portions. 2 pounds loss is the goal!

Daily Eats- Day 18

Cup of Coffee. Non fat Greek Yogurt with Frozen Blueberries and Low Fat Granola. Grapefruit.

Lean Cuisine. Handful of Ketchup Fries. Homemade Pizza (Collard Greens, Chicken Sausage, Pesto, Mushroom, Mozzarella)

Lemon Tea. Date and Coconut bar.

Since giving up sugar (and again, only items that are specifically made to be a sweet) I find that after dinner I do like a little treat. I have been eating dried dates, which I love. I also tried dried Figgs, which are interesting but not quite as sweet. Tonight I bought these dried date bars with coconut. They were called something weird, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name, but all it is, is date and coconut. They are sweet and tropical, I’m a  fan.

I’ve also been craving hot chocolate (we are on day 3 of snow) but it definitely counts as too much sugar, so I had Lemon Tea with a little honey. Cured my need for hot chocolate and kept me warm.

Today at the gym I did cardio and legs. I was having some very sore hips this past weekend so I was giving my legs a break, but today felt pretty good.  I leave you with the cutest thing on earth.
