Day 2 (Week 8)

Hey everyone, didn't get to post last night because my hubby wanted to watch movies and he was using the computer for work.  We really need a new desktop computer.  We wanna setup an office at home for our business so I would like to do soon if we can set aside enough money.  My hubby has several potential jobs to get started but the rain keeps getting in the way.  I hope things start to take off for our business and that would just be a huge dream come true. : )

Anyways, back to the BFC.  This week I have been trying to eat super duper healthy because I am soooooo close to being under 200 and I don't remember when the last time that was.  : ) Several years ago at least.  I have been trying to eat lots of fish and veggies at night.  I try to make breakfast my biggest carb meal this week.  The weekend is where it will be hard because I think I am visiting my grandmother again.  She wants me to take her on a couple errands so hopefully I can have the will power to eat right when I go to lunch with her.  I think I will be able to do it because the goal I am shooting for this week.  So far, because I have been weighing myself each day since Monday's weigh in and I am as of this morning 203.8.  So thats down 2.6 lbs since Monday. :)  If I keep going at this rate then I hope Monday will be an awesome loss for the week.  I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Let me share a recipe with you of two ways I have prepared my fish dinners this week that have been super duper delicious and super easy. 


Baked Salmon With Garlic and Fresh Dill Aioli

In this I didn't use dill, but instead used Mrs. Dash salt free seasoning and I didn't use the white wine.  I just used mayo, mrs. dash, lime juice, and garlic minced  SUPER YUMMMMMMMMMM!!!

Ruby Tuesday's New Orleans Seafood - Copycat

Very simple and great way to eat tilapia! =)

What I ate:  Tuesday

Breakfast:  3 eggs scrambled, 3 slices of bacon, high fiber tortilla (by Ole), 1/4 cup queso fresco and 1 tbsp. crema

Lunch:  Nature Own sugar free bread, I made a sandwich using this bread with chicken deli meat, cheese, mayo and mustard

Dinner:  Tilapia (Ruby's Tueday style)  see recipe above and approx. 2 cups of broccoli 

One bit of my hubby's bread for dessert (like one teeny weeney bite)  Just for taste because it kills me to watch him eat things I want.  I wish he would diet with me.  His belly could stand to shrink a bit, lol!!!  When he sees how skinny I am going to get I bet he will get jealous and be like I am going to eat like you too.  hehe!! Well see how that goes.



  1. Way to go Lindsay! I will keep my fingers crossed that your weigh in will go as you want it too. Ask your Grandmother to HELP you stick to your goals when you go to lunch with her. I'm sure she loves you and will want to help you meet your goals.
    Fingers crossed and wishing you the very best!

  2. Hi, I hope the rain goes away and your hubby gets all those jobs. You are doing so good - just keep it up and yo will be under 200 by monday. Both of those fish dishes sounds great. I love fish - but hubby never wants it, so I have to eat it when he works nights.
    Have a great day.

  3. Thank you Helen and Rosalie!! :)

    I am praying the rain stops and the jobs come through. I don't get excited about the jobs until they are actually started because in the past people have changed there minds and my hopes have been let down. So I just try to rely on God's guidance to take me and my hubby in the right path. :)

    Thank you always to everyone for there comments and motivation.
