That's a weight loss of 1.0 lbs this week. I know my goal was to be under 150 but at the rate I seem to be losing I should be there by next Friday.
I really have settled into the BFC way of eating (lifestyle) and love all the food choices that I have each day. Honestly, I really enjoy lunch time now because I am stocked up with lots of meats, cheeses, veggies, hummus, nuts, seeds, olives, rice cakes, pita bread, english muffins, eggs, almond butter, and some other items and I just mix and match to stay within the recommended 5/2 guideline per meal.
With that said, here is what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: My morning shake; green tea
Snack: 3 Low-sugar/low carb cookies
I tinkered with a No-Bake Cookie recipe and made a peanut butter, chocolate, coconut one that I really liked. I used Spirutein Vanilla Protien Powder to sweeten then and then only needed to add 1 tsp. of stevia. When I ate them, I topped them with a small amount of Redi-Whip. I thought they were yummy. I'll post a picture and the recipe next week.
Lunch: Roast beef, provolone cheese, salami, hummus with celery and crackers, blackberries
Dinner: Low-carb meatballs with zucchini ribbons and alfredo sauce
I got the idea from this post of Amber's and made this meatball recipe. However, rather than using 1/2 beef, and 1/2 pork, I used 2 lbs of ground beef (about 907 grams) beacuse that's all I had.
My husband and I are headed out of town today to celebrate our 16th Wedding Anniversary. My parents are watching our kids. We live about an hour from Denver so that's where we're going. This is only the 3rd time that we've been away for a night since we got married. It's not like my parents, my in-laws, and my sister, haven't offered. It's just that, with having 5 kids, the majority of the time I was either pregnant, or nursing, and that made getting away a little harder. Love the time we get to spend together - just the two of us.
I'll leave you with some of my favorite pictures from our Wedding Day - June 1st, 1996:
|I wore my mother's wedding dress and truly felt like a princess all day!|
|Me and my girls (my cousin, her daughter, my lifelong friend, and my sister)|
|Me and my family|
|Look at that handsome guy!!|
|The guys (Mike, his brother, two of his good friends, and his father)|

I always love reminiscing and looking at these. See ya'll on Monday ~ Have a great weekend!! :)
