Weigh Day v. AWESOME

Monday, April 25, 2011


Goodbye 170s, hello 160s!!! I have never been this small (6th grade maybe?). 20 more pounds until goal- hooooray! Now if only i can convince myself that i don't want any leftover Easter/birthday (bf just turned 23!) goodies......

Had to share - fire roasted vegetable soup & grilled chicken wrap. Add McAlisters sweet tea (which i haven't had since the beg. of my pregnancy) and you've got one deeelish supper!

I love McAlisters. They have so many healthy options and its a really fun atmosphere. Where do you guys like to eat out when on a" calorie budget"?

Moms who work out are seriously super heroes as far as im concerned (actually ALL moms are- but working-out-moms are like super SUPER heroes). With laundry, dishes, feedings, diaper changes, cleaning, snuggles, and all the other mommy duties, where is the time to work out?! I know that's such a cliche excuse, but really. When do you fit it in????

Add homework to that list and it makes for one busy super hero. Luckily bfing helps me burn some bonus calories, but i still hope i can learn how to balance everything and start exercising on the regular again.

Any tips from seasoned mamas out there? How do you fit in those fitness minutes, and what kind of exercises do you do (im thinking along the lines of fast and effective)?


Hope you're week is starting off right! If not, don't worry- tomorrow is a new day, a blank canvas, a fresh start!

Weigh Day

Monday, April 4, 2011

Finally-a little drop! I was in Supermom mode all weekend.... i got a ton of stuff done & I think keeping busy helped me stay on track a little better. It was prob one of the best weekends food wise that I've had thus far.

Lets hope all that gettin stuff done business carries over into the work week. Happy Monday!

Review: Jamba Strawberry Lemonade Swirl bars

Sunday, April 3, 2011

It's such a hot day here today.... 86! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40s... sheesh. Anyway, I decided to try one of these new Jamba bars we got at the store on Friday (we don't have a Jamba Juice here, but they have them in OKC and I loved to get smoothies there when I lived there!).


TALK. ABOUT. DELISH. They're really creamy - not icy at all - and not too sour or too sweet. They're like a mix between a strawberry smoothie and sherbert icecream. I can't believe these things are only 70 calories!

(I couldn't even wait to take the picture before I took a little taste. ha!)

Definitely recommend!
