It's Friiiiiday! Today's good mood brought to you by the letter C. Coffee!
Coffee makes the world a better place.
Not much going on over here, other than thanking Baby Jesus that it's almost the weekend. I am finally jumping on the Elle Noel no-carb band wagon starting this Saturday. Need to stock up on my Think Thin's or this girl is gonna be hangry come 2pm every day. Think Thin's are a "safe food" because they are gluten free. I'll always love my Luna Bars but I'm interested to see how/if they effect my weight loss.
I have been embracing salads lately too, thanks to Miss Megan and after three days, I stopped dreading them lol...I do need to get more creative though. Any ideads? PLEASE SEND ME YOUR SALAD IDEAS! A few of this week's eats:
Grilled chicken, lettuce (of course), red onion, purple cabbage, carrots, boiled & chopped eggwhites, mushrooms and 1 1/2 tbsp. light southwest ranch dressing
Lunch out with the hubs yesterday (he will kill me for calling him the hubs), grilled shrimp, egg whites, tomatoes, lettuce and a little bit of cheese. Both bowls were ginormous even though they look tiny.
Next week I will throw in a taco salad with ground turkey, lettuce, tomato, red onion and salsa for dressing, but I still need ideas so I don't get burnt out. Send 'em my way homegirls! (yes, I just said that. I'm on a roll today)
I tried to do the bagged salad thing like Megan but the ones at the grocery store I go to were lookin' sad and wilted.
I've also added more fruit and veggies as snacks and not as many processed foods. I can tell I am losing inches even though I haven't lost weight in the past two weeks. AND I can tell my skin is clearing up big time. I can definitely work on drinking more water, but all in all I am doing pretty good.
Tomorrow is run number 2 with the Soul Sistas I run with. Four miles! I'm gonna make those four miles my bitch! (Okay I am just talking a huge game.) I hope to run a full 5k atleast, like I did last week. Getting stronger. Come on half marathon! Here's a picture, for your viewing pleasure, of my "cold weather once a year" Louisiana running gear:
(husband, if you are reading this, yes I stole your Air Force hat and long sleeve LSU shirt to run. I am sure he stopped reading this after I called him "the hubs" though, so I should be off the hook)
Stay tuned for a HUGE announcement next week. It involves one red bikini. That's all I'm sayin'. Once Leigh Ann and I iron out all the details, big things will start happening, and you all will benefit too:) Can't wait to share!
