Fruit and the Flu (but not together)

One nice thing about working at Costco is I get to see all the yummy food go by that I need to buy! I get a free membership for working there and I was in DIRE need of fruit. I had been working all closing shifts so I never had time to buy anything so yesterday Mr. Gaunt and I went in before I worked to get a few things, like fruit which I can not live without. I eat it all day long, in my cereal, as snack, as desert too. I cut it up and make fruit salads, I send it with Mr. Gaunt in his lunch, we eat a ton of fruit! And Costco has great prices on bulk fruit, the only thing I didn’t get was the cantaloupe because they only come in a three pack and I just don’t think I can eat that much, but I did get…




Today I have the day off and Im suppose to go up to Westminster to my meeting to weigh in at nine. First off I have some sort of awful stomach bug (the kind where you stomach rumbles all day long and your chuging Pepto) and it sucks because the thought of eating makes me want to yak! I also am mid-period so I just can imagine weigh in going very well, things are all wonky inside. But even if I only lose .8lbs that will hit my 40lbs lost which is cool with me. I just want this bug to GET OUT OF ME! I hate being sick…grrr.

Another Goal Met!

yay-773135.jpgWell its July 20th! If you look at my goals today I had hoped to loose 27lbs, so even though I’m getting ready to leave tonight for Washington I made a quick trip up to Westminster for my meeting and weigh in….the results….?

27.8 lbs lost!!!!!!!!

Woo hoo Woo hoo! (=

So pleased with myself and now I’m going to have a GREAT vacation!

And if you need some motivation while I’m gone Im not a fan of Miss. Cirus but this song always motivates me in my weight loss. And Ill be back in a week with pictures galore!

Meeting Topic: Adding Fruits and Veggies


In meeting tonight we talked about how July is Fruits and Veggies month. We were all given the goal of adding 3 fruits or vegetables to every meal, and having 5 servings daily. I do pretty well eating the fruit. I definitely eat at least two if not three servings of fruit every day. Mornings start off with FF Plain Vanilla Yogurt mixed with Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal and cut up strawberries and blueberries.  I then will often have a snack of banana, peach or more berries mid day. Especially since fruit is in season (and cheap at Target Super Stores!) right now. Veggie on the other hand are a mixed bag. We buy lots and lots of mixed frozen vegetables, anything from the Asian mix to the Italian mix to the summer blends. Fresh veggies in our house usually just consist of Lettuce, onion, tomato, cucumbers, and baby carrots. Id love to do more zucchini and squash on the grill (we don’t have an outdoor grill but we do have a cook-top attachment like this that’s nice for steaks and veggies. Anyways I’m hoping to  really step up to the challenge and kick my veggie intake into high gear.

This week weight wise went pretty good. Lost 2.6lbs which puts me 4.2 lbs away from my goal for July 20th! my flight on the 20th is at 8pm so I’m hoping to get to a morning meeting to do a weigh in. I’m thinking I may go look for some new clothes this weekend. I really need some Capri’s and some cut summer tops that aren’t tanks and T’s, something a little nicer. Id also love some more skirts and dresses because they tend to last longer during weight loss. I also need to find a new cute dress for Manda’s wedding. Anyways I may wait until the weekend before I leave to make sure I’m the right size.
