I have done really well this week.  I have been counting my calories and have worked out everyday for the past 9 days.  Last night we were very overwhelmed and had to hit a drive-thru but I got the chicken fajita pita from Jack in the Box, no fries! 

I know that tomorrow is going to be a major cheat day cause it's my son's b-day party.  I feel really good though so I don't want to blow it too much!

I haven't lost a pound yet but my pants are feeling a little less snug....

Alright! I'm ready to set my goals (yes, it's Friday night, I am aware...)

My goals for this week are simple! Eat breakfast at home every day, and bring my lunch to work every day. I'm going grocery shopping tonight, and will probably pick up some "healthy" cereal and almond milk for breakfast, as well as smoothie stuff. I'll make a green salad for lunch for maybe 3 days, and then maybe a grain salad of some sort, or a soup! Oh, and KALE CHIPS! So yummy, so yummy.

Well, I'm pretty pleased with my first week. I've written down everything that's gone into my mouth and just from being a little bit aware of that I've lost 2 lbs. So my next goal is to start walking which for me is a chore. (there! I've said it). Also bought some cauliflower that I need to find a recipe for that DH will eat also. (I can't eat garlic. Well, I can it's just that the consequences aren't very pleasant and I love garlic.)

I've been doing good all week with tracking my food. I'm finding I'm low on protein most days (newly vegetarian, it was kind of to be expected) so I need to start seeking out some foods that are higher in protein. Also, we need to get a scale...

Tonight I'm eating farfalle pasta with roasted cauliflower, cannelini beans, olives, anchovies, parsley, and a little bit of parmesan. Not the most veg-heavy meal, but not all that unhealthy. I'm planning on making kale chips for later when I sit down to watch a movie.

Went for a short walk with the dog this afternoon... will try and do another later this evening.

I'm making these salmon patties for dinner! I added some lemon zest and cayenne pepper as well as cooked minced red onion with minced celery to add in (and reduced the fat a bit). I desperately need to get veggies from the store, but I'm making baked onion rings from here on Craftster as well as a bit of salad and some sad looking broccoli I would like to use up.

I made the onion rings after reading your post and they were fantastic!! They felt so much healthier since they weren't full of gross oil.

I've been doing great drinking more water and eating a small breakfast this week. I feel a lot less tired at night and I feel like I'm getting more done. YAY!

Oh Heck! Fell off the wagon. I was dying for a hamburger so I made hamburgers and fried onion rings (heck). Now I know where I got the urge for the onion rings. I need to get my oven fixed so I can just bake them. I made a salad with it but no other carbs. Oh well. Gotta make up for it.

I did good this weekend! Yay! I'm going to make a smoothie for breakfast tomorrow, and I have salad stuff ready to go for lunch, and soup ready to go for dinner.

Saturday was a bad day due to my son's birthday party.  I stayed away from the cake but I snacked a bit more than I wanted to.

Last night we had beef tacos that I made in the crock pot.  They were SO good.  Not many veggies but I didn't eat any chips and salsa.

This week for lunch I will be having quinoa, grilled chicken, and steamed veggies.  YUM!
