MIA again: 92 Days Left

Sorry I have been MIA...

I promise I have still been working out. I kicked my booty last night. I am about to go on a bike ride right now.

I have not weighed myself (mostly because my monthly friend has left me feeling HUGE lately!) but I intend on weighing myself VERY soon.

I promise I will be better about posting!

Take care until next time,

I have been DREADING writing in this blog because I honestly feel kind of ashamed.

When I was taking care of myself, I got all the way down to 138 (making that a 12 pound weight loss). My jeans were starting to get loose. I had lots of energy. I LOVED it.

Just the other day I noticed that my jeans were getting tighter. I definitely did the whole "I just washed and dried them so they must have shrunk" excuse. I didn't want to believe that I had put the weight back on.

Well, I finally weighed myself... and my fear became a reality. I have put back on 9 pounds. Yes, I am back up to 147. The scale is going in the wrong direction considering I am getting married in 3 months.

It was really hard to write this post today. I remember feeling SO proud of losing the weight, and now that is taken away with the pounds I have put on.

I get married in 103 days guys. I need to get serious about taking care of myself.

I want to feel sexy for my hubby on our wedding day/ night/ honeymoon. Scratch that. I WILL feel sexy.

This is it guys... who is in it with me?!

Making Progress

You guys will be so proud!!! I ate really well today. I had a salad for lunch (with cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, hard boiled egg, lettuce, and LIGHT dressing. It was delish and filled me up quite nicely.

Then, for dinner, I had fruit salad and half of a quesadilla. It was really small so it was not much cheese. I had lots of fruit though.

I am still addicted to Diet Coke. Is it really THAT bad for me!? Ugh... that will be a hard habit to break.

I am going to start something new on Fridays that I think a lot of people will like. I am going to call it Fast Food Fridays. Then, we can all learn that if you HAVE to go to a fast food restaurant you can eat within reason. I will exhibit one fast food restaurant per week and I will discuss the possible "healthier" options on the menu! You like?! I hope so.

P.S. I am STILL working on the comments thing. Don't hate me cuz I can't get it to work! :)

Give it to me straight...

... Just HOW bad are Taco Bell's Grilled Chicken Burritos for me?!

I was weak and needed food VERY quick today because I was on my way to my niece's graduation from high school. In order to prevent passing out, I went to Taco Bell. I purchased a grilled chicken burrito.

Seemed like a pretty smart purchase...

390 Calories, 13 grams of fat, 49 grams of carbs, and 19 grams of protein later...

No, it wasn't HORRIBLE... but it sure as heck isn't the best thing for me!

Tomorrow is a new day... AND it is FRIDAY! What could be better than that?!

I hope you all enjoy your friday!!! :)

Take care until next time,
