October Fix Day 1

I'm back in it!  Last month didn't work well (see my previous post) but I'm still down 40 pounds overall!!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  Today I'm not working out (I have a dentist appointment and i don't want my kiddos in childcare that long

Breakfast was a fried egg and 2 strips of turkey bacon (cut in half thats why it looks like 4)  and a grilled tomato.

I have a dental school appointment today so I've put dinner in the crock pot.  Its one onion, one carrot, 4 radishes, 5 garlic cloves, and some split peas with 2 bone in thighs (they're cheaper than breasts) I put it in the crock pot for about 8 hours on low.

 In the mean time lunch was a diced up tomato, a diced up pickle and greens tossed with a can of Tuna (and some pickle juice for dressing)

Here's dinner all cooked .  The chicken was a little dry (and the peas completely dissipated)  but for not having to cook with a couple of clingy babys after a dental appointment it was pretty darn good.  For measuring i just measured out one green container of the cooked veggies and all the drippings I wanted (i only added about half a cup of water to the crock pot), so all the liquid is from the chicken an veggies, so i count is as included in the calorie count :-) 

Dessert/post dinner snack was an apple with some peanut butter... i know its way more than I'm supposed to have on the plan, but I didn't use any blue containers and its natural, so i'm counting it as a "fat". I was raised seeing it as a protein and am having a hard time switching it in my mind.

I'm still kindof hungry so I may have a banana half or something later, but we'll see :-)

Thanks for reading and keeping me accountable

September Failure

Ok, so I'm finally getting around to updating this, I started doing the 21 Day fix last month, but I was tired of doing daily posts, so I tried doing just a weekly post... well you can see how well that worked.... About 10 days in i realized i hadn't posted at all and my motivation totally just plopped out.  I didn't start eating like i used to, but i wasn't trying very hard.  I would sneak fruit roll ups and i ate ALOT of peanut butter, with apples, but still way more than the teaspoon i'm supposed to have on the plan.  I was still working out, but my diet wasn't great.  I'm still making progress.  As of yesterday I'm officially down 40 Pounds!  Woo Hoo.  I'm back to it for real today. but I'm going to put that in a separate post
