Diet Plan: The shopping list

So I can stand to have the same things for breakfast and lunch. I'm all about quick and easy for those meals. So I do typically eat the same things.
1 cup cornflakes, 1/2 cup milk, half a banana.

Lunch: 2 cups salad greens, one tomato, quarter of a medium onion, 2 TB ranch. I use the real stuff. Tastes better. and half a can of chicken noodle soup.

Dinner: I am a basic kinda gal. A meat/protein, 2 Veggies, and a starch.

So here's my list:

2 boxed cornflakes
2 gallons milk
3 bags salad
4 cans chicken noodle soup
6 meats
12 veggies
6 starches.
There you have it. All meats are baked or broiled, or now that it's getting warmer, grilled. Why not 7? We ALWAYS get pizza on friday nights. it's a treat for the kids, and a break for me. But I limit myself to 1 slice with a salad. Or maybe two if me and bike are getting along fairly well that day, LOL

Weight loss update

Still no budge on the scales, but I did lose inches. That's what matters most.

an inch on my chest band, 1 3/4 inches on my waist and 2 1/2 inches on my hips. That's definately a "stand still" I'll take.

The dress I'm trying to get into!

It's by Alfred Angelo and the price is just as gorgeous as the dress. Seriously. It's so below my budget. I need to order it no later than December of this year, so that leaves me with 9 months to get to my goal size. Initially, I was going to order in July, but I'll give myself a few more months.

Great weigh loss this week

I weigh in on Wednesdays. Typically not on other days because I don't want to stress my self with day to day fluctuations. The only time I weigh on and off day is when I've over eaten the day before and need to know how to make up for it.

So, today, I step on the scale. I'm very surprised to see it tell me that I have lost 4.4 pounds this week.

I'm ecstatic this morning. Everyone is asleep here, so i can't jump and holler, but I'm happy. Tonight is suppose to be mine and Brian's date night. Not sure what we're doing. We can't decide on anything,.

Well, I'm off to make my rounds in cyber-ville, and then to start my day.

Take Care!

A snow Day

The kids just got out of school because it's snowing. It's the south, so it's not "that bad" but down here we shut down for everything.
I'm sitting here enjoying a break at the computer with my frappe'. I didn't use the sugar today and saved me some calories. Actually, I forgot to use the sugar, didn't omit it on purpose. It's JUST AS GOOD!

So I've been imformed that people don't want to read my dietary journal unless it's interesting stuff, so we won't do that today. (Thanks, honey!)

Yesterday, Gabe (the nine year old) bet me that I couldn't walk eight miles at once. He bet me "dollar for mile, I bet you can walk eight miles. Loser pays". So my competitvity came out and I shook the childs hand and said, "I bet I can, boy. It's on. It's on like Donkey Cong". So, assuming the snow isn't too bad, and it isn't too cold, we'll be hitting the pavement tonight. Too cold? we'll do it tomorrow. Poor kid doesn't realize I'm training to do 26 on my birthday in 4 months :-) I'll keep that to myself. He might surprise me, LOL.

Last night, I put in 45 minutes on the bike while I watched Law and Order. Love that show. I was into the show so much that I didn't realize I had rode that much. My precious children broke my odometer on there, so I don't know how fast or how "far" I rode, but I will be getting another one later on. My first ten pound goal is an mp3 player. My old one broke, or died, should say. It won't hold a charge anymore. So when I reach my first ten pound goal, I will be getting a new one. This time, I'm getting one just like Gabe's. It's just a cheap $15 one from Dollar General. But it's survived baseball practice, football practice, the floor board of my car, and needless to add a nine year old in general. I'm sure it will be perfect for me. No more $100 mp3s for me.
My second ten pound goal reward is a new odometer for the bike. After that, I don't know. Although I mentioned to B about putting the amount of my weight loss in dollars into an envelope and when I reach my goal (just over 50 pounds total) buying me a new "COOL" outfit. I never buy new clothes. I'm a goodwill shopper through and through. I've never paid more than $3 for a pair of jeans. That's sad, but true.

anyway, I've got some work to do, so I must go, but take care, my blogger family.
