Fantastic Friday!

I'm a little tired today.  When I work evenings I don't get a lot of sleep because I am home and to bed late and then up early again to get Brayden off to school.  Usually, the girls get up at the same time or shortly after Brayden does so I don't get a chance to get back to bed.  This morning I've been kinda lounging while the girls had breakfast and watched cartoons.

I got the invite to my friend Andrea's wedding today!  I'm so excited!!  I've been looking at dresses and really like a couple. 

Aren't they pretty!  I'd like to be able to buy one now because they are on sale now but I'm going to wait until closer to the wedding so I can try them on and make sure I have one that fits nicely. 

Yesterday and today I made pancakes for breakfast.  I'm getting pretty good at it! haha 
Yesterday I was out of spray so I used a little oil.  Today I had spray.  I felt better about using the spray.  I'm going to have to make pancakes for the kids tomorrow, though.  Seeing me eat mine has made them pretty hungry for some!  I told them I'd make some on Saturday for them. 

I don't remember if I said before but I'm so excited about how the eating habits of my whole family has been changing!  It's exciting to me because I know I'm setting a good example and also a little relief that maybe I will eventually be able to make my lean and green and make the same for the rest of the family instead of making something different for them.  Remember that box of apples and oranges?  It's nearly gone!  There have been years where we have actually thrown some of the fruit away but not this year!  I'm so happy for my children to have the option to make healthy choices and actually make those healthy choices!

Last night at work I had an easy lean and green.  I used to eat this when I was on Weight Watchers.  I saw the idea on a trainers tip on The Biggest Loser. 
Green bell pepper, sliced, wrapped with turkey breast lunch meat.  I really like it!

Yesterday I had to remind myself several times that I was on a journey to weight loss and was not going to be side tracked or distracted by foods not on plan.  There was a bakery sale at work yesterday and there were so many treats all over.  I didn't even go to it!  I was pretty proud that I didn't tempt myself by going to it... and I saved money! :)  It was still a little hard though, which is kind of surprising since I haven't really felt that yet.  Thankfully, I was able to get through it.

  1. Kudo's to you for avoiding that bake sale!! Seriously, every time you are strong against those temptations, you only get stronger. And giving in is NEVER worth it. You always will feel way more disapointment and guilt than it is ever worth eating!! I've learned this by sad experience. It feels SO GOOD to lay in bed and night and know you made good food choices.

    One day at a time!! You can do this!! And it will change your family and increase your years. :)
