I am still here....

Hey girls!! I am still here, just been so super busy with my friend that I haven't had time to do much of anything else.  I am still maintaining my weight, but I know I have been bad about blogging lately.  I hope after this weekend everything will get to normal again.  We found a potential good car, I hope for her.  We gotta take a mechanic friend to go look in a little while to check under the hood.  I have been helping her and her kids going to school and picking up for daycare everyday and helping go to the store etc etc.  I been running around a lot and when I get a free moment I just wanna relax and I don't think about blogging.  Especially about foods right now.  I just don't want anyone to think I gave up or forget about me.  I miss you gals!!  I haven't even got a chance to read a lot of your blogs lately either.  : (

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!  Finally its been warm enough to swim in our pool, so I might try to take a dip in the pool today.

Week 17 --- I can't focus :(

Well here it is week 17 of the Belly Fat cure and I am not happy with my eats this past week.  I eat good for breakfast and lunch and fail at dinner time.  I haven't been to proud of myself this last week and I can blame it on things being different in my house, but I know the real reason.  It is just me being lazy and giving up.  But I don't wanna give up, I felt so much healthier and more energetic when I ate healthy.  I have been feeling depressed and can't get out of my funky mood.  I am trying really hard for the sake of myself and diet.  I feel depressed for my friend and her situation.  I know its hard for her.  I feel sad for my hubby who I guess isn't happy with the difference in the house, yet I feel kinda happy for having my friend around.  She helps me cook and clean while I am working and I enjoy our talks and fun things with the kids.  It does stress me a little bit, but I don't mind really.  I use more energy up now then normally, but I do it because I would do anything for a friend or family in need.  Anyways, I am also a little depressed about my hubby's job and his idea of spending vs. saving.  He basically doesn't save anything at all.  He wants to watch the HBO pay per view fights, hang out drinking with his friends.  He wants to live the fun life instead of the responsible life.  My husband is like a child I guess you could say haha!! He is 33 going on 16 or whatever you wanna say.  Just gets on my last nerve.

Thank for listening to the venting.  I promise I will stop trying to complain.  It just like this is my diary and it helps me get it all out.

Week 16 Trying to stick to it

Well today I followed my diet pretty well until dinner time.  I have been feeling sorta tired and a bit stressed lately.  I couldn't wake up this morning for some reason.  Coffee didn't even help.  I was just in a brain fog all day.

Today I ate:
B- Egg Mcmuffin
L- Salad with turkey and cheese using romaine and iceberg lettuce mixed with a small packet of ranch (BFC safe)
D- Rotisserie chicken with a side of macaroni and cheese (probably should have chose a veggie instead)  I was just tired and drained so I didn't cook, just ate what was easiest.

Its going to take a little while to get into a routine now that things have sorta changed.  Not a routine with eating, just with the daily tasks.  Like my schedule is a little different and waking up earlier and having several things to do when I get home sorta makes me exhausted and then I choose not the best options.  I seem to have lost weight last week, but not enough to make me happy.  I am going to try to be more strict in the future here with this eating.  I don't need to let anything get in the way.  I know you all are always saying the same thing too.  Its just I feel tired and a bit sad lately.  I am trying to get out of my funk and pep up a bit.

Wish me luck!!

I am back in action! :)

Hello everyone!  Finally I am back in action!  Sorry I had to take a week off from blogging.  I had an emergency with a best friend of mine.  I don't need to go into the details of her private life, but what happened was major.  It was sad and I feel for her.  Lets just say her boyfriend/fiance was not the person she thought after four years of being together and a sudden 360 happened in her life.  She has two young kids so she had to move out suddenly.She now lives with me until she can get things situated in a new fresh start of her life.  Yesterday she found a job, so I am excited for her for that.  I know she was so happy to get a job after looking for months and months.  My life got rearranged a bit, but I would do anything for my dear friend because I know in return she would do the same for me.  I like having my friend around, it makes it fun for all our crazy conversations we have.  hehe!! We share some great laughs together.  I don't mind helping her with her kids either, I just know I lost a little quiet time in the house, but to see them all happy makes it worth it. : )  I have been waking up a little earlier then normal to take them to school because I live just outside of their school district where they use to live, but what is the since to change schools with only 3 weeks left.  So I volunteered to drive them.  Anyways enough about that.  Just wanted to fill you all in on where I had been.

I missed reading blogs and posting everyday.  I missed my friends! : )  But now I am back to posting.  I didn't eat perfectly, I will not lie, but I think I ate very low calorie because I have been so busy lately...I hardly had time to eat for meals and just haven't been in the mood to eat like normal.  But one positive note, no weight gain.  I actually lost 1 lbs.  I have been at 197.8 forever!!  Now I am down to 196.4 which is not much loss, but its something.  Now I am getting back into the swing of things and trying to eat as good as possible.  There are now bad snacks in the house to tempt me because kids love those snacks so the will power test will be in play for me big time now.

 Wish me luck!!  Missed you all!! I will get back to posting now on all your blogs too, sorry I haven't gotten to post much this week, just haven't had time to read everyone's blog.  :(

Today my eating includes:
B:  Egg, sausage mcmuffin with coffee
L:  Salad with lite ranch, turkey, cheese, and a little crouton
D:  Spaghetti bfc portion style and side salad or a veggie
