Here we go again....

Well...tomorrow is the day I get back in the swing of things...I am actually really excited! I loved the feeling of eating good and feeling less bloated and less tired...I made a nice dinner tonight. Ham, scalloped potatoes, yams and green beans...and we have enough ham to eat sandwiches all week for lunch.

I can tell you though I am REALLY not looking forward to getting on the scale tomorrow...I know that I have gained some weight back. I know that it may not be pretty but the good thing is I am starting to move in the right direction! I have lunches packed for tomorrow and I am watching Desperate Housewives and then I will be hitting the sack!

I am also trying something new tomorrow. I have always wanted to try hummus but was too chicken because it sounded gross. I bought some tomato & basil hummus to try with my baby carrots as a snack for tomorrow....we will see how it goes. I was also able to find the Light version of the babybel cheese that I love so much! We went to BJ's today and I got lots of things for lunches. Yogurt, fig newtons, baby carrots, baby cucumbers and some grape tomatoes...OH YEAH and I made a pasta salad from a Taste of Home Comfort food diet cookbook. It has grape tomatoes, turkey pepperoni, green onions and the sauce had parmesan cheese, rice wine vinegar, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cornstarch and water...I had a bite and it was so good but it wasn't quite chilled yet so it will probably be alot better when its super cold. The serving size is 1 cup. I will post the recipe later and the nutrition info later:)

Anyway so please wish me luck...I am really happy that I am getting back into that my schedule has calmed down some. See you all tomorrow with the weigh in update....later friends!


  1. I didn't like hummus at first either. It does sound gross, but I got the Sambas (I think) kind from Costco and I love it with carrots or bell peppers. It's also good with triskets. Good luck! :)

  2. Good Luck with your fresh start, there are a lot of us getting on the same bus. Here's to a great ride;o)
