Weight Loss Goals

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Just for the record..I'm doing better. I did OK yesterday besides having Spanish rice but I did a lot better than I have been.

As I type this, I am eating a ground turkey burger on a whole wheat bun with real mayo, mustard, ketchup and a tomato slice, and I am drinking water.  Yeah, I kinda forgot I shouldn't be having mayo, so I need to keep that in mind for next time. I'm eating slower again, taking my time and not scarfing my food down.

Tonight for dinner I am thinking about having chicken/turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread...and if I can get to a store and look for those "pop chips" things, then those to go with it. Or possibly a grilled turkey cutlet with natural (no salt or sugar) green beans. :)

I'm feeling pretty good. I know I can stick to this.

My sister made something else for lunch, and I made sure to make my own meal. I need to take control over what I eat, so I am! I've got the food, I've got the mentality...now to stick with it!

I'm alive, and I am back

I have been away a while, I know!

I've also been doing horribly as far as my diet goes.

I stopped babysitting, and I didn't think it would be so hard to eat healthy being at home, but it's harder than I thought. I live with my sister and her family, and what they buy/eat, is basically what I eat since I really don't have the money to buy my own food. They don't eat healthy, and most of the time eat out.

So, needless to say, I've been eating like shit, eating out, eating fried foods, not exercising worth a crap. I know I gained a few pounds back and I am JUMPING BACK ON THE WAGON before I gain it ALL back!!

So, I applied for food stamps and I got them. I went grocery shopping and got nothing but "healthy" foods. Last time, I completely cut out breads... so I'm gonna try now to have only whole wheat breads and see how I do.

I'll share my grocery list here so if anything sounds off or something just let me know! I don't know if I'll be updating daily like I used to but I would at least like to update again weekly... I've got to get myself in gear again! I totally let it all go and I feel like crap about it.

Here is my grocery list:

Bag of Boneless/skinless chicken breasts
2 rolls ground turkey
2 rolls taco seasoned ground turkey
Box of 6 ground turkey patties
4 ground turkey cutlets
Ground turkey hot dogs
chicken and Turkey sandwich meat
Whole wheat bread
Whole wheat hamburger and hot dog buns
Bag of Salad
Ranch dressing
Unsalted/Non-Shelled peanuts
Simply Jif peanut butter
Tortilla's (will get whole wheat later)

I've got to get a couple of Mrs.Dash seasonings and I should be good for a little while. :) The only "unhealthy" things I got were lunchables, cookies and some ice cream for my nieces. I didn't get ANYTHING unhealthy for me. Not even a "ohhh, well I will just have this every now and then" type of snack.  There are a few more items I need that aren't meal items but stuff to snack on, so if anybody has any good, healthy snack idea's (besides peanuts or peanut butter/banana/honey tortilla roll ups) Let me know! :)

Oh, and I want to send a big *HUG* to Kim. She constantly kept in contact trying to figure out what was going on with me, why I wasn't blogging and trying to motivate me. It helped, girl, thank you! I really appreciate it more than you know! I'm sorry I slipped up there but I am back in action!!
