Sorry I have been busy!!

Hey girls, sorry I have been so busy lately.  School work, working, doing mine and my hubby's own business stuff, cooking dinners, etc.  I never find time to write on this blog anymore.  I haven't even got a chance to barely read anyone elses.  I am sorry guys that I have been so absent.  I am trying to eat as best as I can during these busy times.  I have found that I need it to be super duper simple.  So I was at the grocery store last night and I went through all the Michelena lite, smart ones, and lean cuisines that are under two carbs and under 5g of sugars.  I found a lot of yummy ones' so I got lunches for work this week.  Breakfast, I still need to think of how to make it fast because I don't even have time to make eggs.  I like boiled eggs but not for breakfast.  Any ideas?  Dinner is the one meal I usually have time to cook.  Last night I made one of the best dinners ever.  Pollo en Fricasse. MMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!  I highly recommend it if you haven't tried it.  Just have to make it BFC friendly which I actually didn't check to see if it was.  But I didn't put anything too bad in it.  Anyways if anyone can pass along quick ideas for meals that work for them, that would be super awesome!!

Have a great day girls!! BFC POWER!!

Monday...just another one of those days

Well hello everyone!!  How was your weekends?  Hope they were well.  Mine was fantastic.  I went to the Women of Faith conference with my mom and my friend and her mom.  I recommend it highly if it ever comes in a city near you.  I think there were approx. 10,000 women there.  It was full of singing, laughs, and even tears, but I loved every minute of it.  I ate fairly well, but they did provide lunch both days of the conference so I ate what they provided.  

Today I ate Egg Mcmuffin for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch and pork chops with a little rice and peas for dinner.  I of course could have done with out the rice. : )  I left my HCG drops in the car Saturday so apparently per that diet, it says the drops become ineffective once left in high temps.  I would imagine it being in the mid 90s for the weekend, it was even hotter in the car.  I was pretty pissed off since I paid $35 for the bottle of drops, but maybe that was telling me that I should just do the good old regular BFC eating.  I don't know why I always try to lose weight faster.  I guess I just want it to magically come off.  I did well on the HCG diet, I lost about 6 lbs. in just 3 days, but I don't want to spend more on drops just to forget them in the car again on accident.  That gets to expensive.  So I pulled out my old BFC menu and I am back to it.  

School classes start Monday and I am excited and nervous.  I already got my syllabuses for the first two classes so I am getting in order and need to get a new computer this week.  Because my laptop has about had it.  The charger doesn't like to work right and of course a few other buttons on this thing.  I have been shopping around and I really like the Gateway All in One computer.  Anyone else gotten a new computer recently that they like and could recommend?

Well good luck everyone!!

Day 1 Back on track

Well ladies I weighed myself this morning and it says 2 lbs. lost.  I think...  I got a regular scale and not a digital one this time because my digital ones' keep breaking.  Maybe that is a sign lol!!  Nah probably not, but I just bought a $10 good old fashioned scale instead of the $50 digital one's.  Trying to save money. Anywayssss.... ;)

What else is new for me?  Not much....hubby has been busy working working working which is good.  Getting lots of jobs so that is awesome.  People of course are slow to pay when their jobs are finished though which sucks big time.  Either that or they want 30 days to pay if they are a business.  Us being a small business, that makes it hard but if we don't allow the time then that business will go somewhere that does.  So ya know sometimes you gotta bare with it. 

I have had a little bit of a hard time starting back, but I will get on the wagon again eventually and not have any issues I hope.  I felt very exhausted yesterday and had a headache from the new eating plan again.  I will get use to it.  Maybe it was just because it was another bored out of my mind day at work.  Its busy one week here at the office then its dead as a doornail other days.  But as of August 22nd., I will have more to do with my time since I am returning to school to complete my Bachelor's.  I am finishing a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies focusing on business and social science since that is what the four years of college that I have already taken transfer.  If all goes as planned, I will be able to graduate in July 2012. : )  I only have about 10 classes to take and I am taking four fall semester at Liberty Univ. which is in VA, but I am doing the distance learning.  Wish me luck!! Hope I am still smart, lol!! Its been like 6 years since I have been in college.  Wow didn't realize its been that long til just thought about it now.  But I wanna complete this before having babies. :)  I plan this to be a busy year.  Diet, College, then planning babies!! hehe!!  Lots to accomplish. 

Yesterday I ate:

Egg scrambled and bacon for breakfast
Grilled Italian chicken breast and romaine salad with chopped tomato for lunch
4 medium strawberries chopped up with a little truvia sprinkled on top
Stir fry chicken breast with onions, broccoli and a slice of tomato
I did have some pringles and crackers mixed in for dessert because I was starving from not being use to the new eating quite yet.  I will get there though. : )

Im back!!

Hey everyone!  I am back finally...sorry I was away so long.  I had a very busy summer.  My nieces were with me and my hubby and well lets just say we were running running running.  But last week they returned home with their mom in Puerto Rico to start school this week.  It was wonderful to have them, but I did fail on the diet quite a bit while they were around.  But as of this past weekend I started back on my healthy lifestyle.  Luckily I only gained about 7 lbs. over the summer so that should fall right back off, probably even this week. 

I miss you girls!  Sorry I feel off the wagon for a while.  I know I shouldn't have, because I would probably be nearing my goal by now if not already.  Bummer, but hey it's my fault and no one elses.

Look forward to reading your blogs again : )
