Did what I do best, eat my emotions

Today was one of those days I didn’t want to deal with work. I was texting my hubby about how my day was going and how annoyed I was getting. I was at one of my job sites and he texted me that he lost his job. Talk about shocked,upset and scared about what is going to happen for finances. When I arrived to another job site I walked by a vending machine and seen a snickers. So I did what I do best, eat my emotions. Then I had a meeting and ate a bite size reeses cup. I brought snacks with me for the day so I ended up eating cheese and crackers instead of all the junk food they had. I did grab some snacks to bring home for the kids. For dinner tonight hubby made a chicken sandwich and tater tots. It was delicious and wanted more but I was full and was done eating. Now I’m ready for bed, which I have been tired more lately. I have been hoping with working out that I would get more energy. I know eating better will also help get more energy. I have been waking up a lot lately with head aches and sometimes threw out my day I get head aches and want to figure out what is causing it. I know stress can play a part in it. Until next time…. Goodnight


Not alot to say….

Today was a good day, about half way through my day I was really tired all of a sudden. I just wanted to lay down and take a nap. Came home from work and hubby decided he wanted pizza made with the cauliflower crust, so that’s what we made. For some reason it didn’t smell or taste the same, but it was still good. We made the kids there pizza first then ours and by the time it was time to eat I had two slices and was full and done eating. Put the rest in the fridge, hopefully it tastes the same tomorrow. I didn’t work out today since I worked out yesterday and will work out on Thursday, who knows I might workout tomorrow as well. I need to keep going and get this weight off it wont come off by it self :). I don’t have much to write today because everything was going good and no complaints. Until next time…. Goodnight

The results are in….

Weekend has come and gone already, one week closer to leaving on our vacation. So i didnt have such a good weekend saturday i went out to eat at taco bell for lunch. Later that night we went to a friends house and when we left it was after 12. Hubby and i were hungry and were debating on if we wanted to get something to eat. In my head i was screaming hell yeah lets get some white castles. The words out of my mouth where no because we have to pass the house go down the street then tomorrow we will regret it and say, “Why did we eat white castle last night”?  So we ended up just going home and to bed. Woke up sunday morning and i told hubby that i wanted a donut. I didnt want a donut from the gas station or from the grocery store, i wanted something different and good. I was thinking mojo monkey, so i looked up the donuts they had and picked two that i wanted. Well if one wasnt there then the other would be my back up. I wanted to go but i knew if i did i would have bought my self like 2 or 3 donuts just so i could have them to eat for the next few days. Well hubby went, thank god i wouldnt be tempted to get more than one donut. Hubby came home and i couldnt wait to eat my peanut butter and jelly donut with potato chips on top. All though the donut was delicious i had gut rut from all the sugar. I was still hungry after since i just had sugar. But didnt eat anything ekse since i just had a donut. Went to my brothers house on sunday for dinner and had grilled burgers, brats, chips and dip and baked beans. Was delicious cant wait for summer so we can grill more often. Then we went to pick up our son from my mothers house and bought wendys on the way home. My daughter and i shared a meal she had chicken nuggets i had a burger and we shared the fries and drink. 

I recieved my results back from my thyroid test and eveything came back normal. Part of my was a little sad because i thought this could be my problem to not losing weight, getting pregnant and hair loss. All i would have had to do was take a pill to get it all normal again. Then the other part of me was relieved because then i dont have to take pills, but now i know i have to work out twice as hard and eat more healthier. Which is all fine with me. I have a meeting tomorrow so i decided to work out today, i will probably still work out tomorrow but we’ll see where the day takes us. Im getting the hang of working out, i feel like my body craves for me to work out which it never really has done before. By this time i would have given up and went back to my old ways but im sticking with it, im tired of my old ways. I weighed myself when i got home from swimming lessons and i lost another pound. So now i weigh 268 woo hoo feels good. For dinner tonight we made burrito bowls and mine was made with quinoa and man was it good, it seriously tasted like chipotle, very satisfying. Until next time…. Goodnight

Cauliflower pizza crust is my new bff

I didn’t work today so I was excited to sleep in. I turned off my alarm and was sleeping good, until 4:30am came around when my husband bumped me in his sleep and woke me up. That was it I was up and ready for the day😔 I really wanted to sleep in and enjoy it. Went to breakfast with my bestie,  went to Perkins then took the kids to monkey house to burn off some energy then to target. Tonight for dinner we tried something new, cauliflower pizza crust. I had it once at girls weekend when my cousin made it and I loved it have been talking about it to hubby since. I did research for it on Pinterest and found a recipe on how to make it. It seemed really complicating with the riced cauliflower, microwaving and drying. Well it wasn’t as hard as I thought it sounded. Made my first batch and while the crust was cooking man it smelled so good, like you just walked into a pizza shop. The first one was made with pizza sauce, pepperoni and Italian cheese. They family really liked it, Phew hubby and kids approved. Then I made mine I didn’t flatten it out as thin as this first and I added a cream cheese pesto for sauce, leftover chicken, tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella. All I can say is this will be made again in the house and the pizza toppings are going to get better. I started looking up recipes for different uses and found some other ways to use cauliflower and a different recipe which I will try next time for the crust. If you have been hesitant on trying the cauliflower crust try it it is so good. Also I weighed myself yesterday and I lost a pound . Yoo hoo that feels good. Until next time …. Goodnight

step 1: Thyroid test and ultra sound

Was a busy morning I had to get my daughter up with me so I could drop her off at day care. I made breakfast for three, lunch and snacks for me and coffee for myself. Out the door stopped to get gas and washer fluid then dropped my daughter off. Went to work and was there early which was nice After work I came home and worked out with the hubby took a shower and went to my doc appointment. I had an ultra sound done on my thyroid since they are a little swollen and to see if there are any nodules. I’m a little nervous but happy to be getting this done all at the same time. I’m happy because this could be some of the cause to my problems and it’s a simple fix, take pills. Im nervous because if it’s not my thyroid then there are other steps I have to take to deal with my problems. I will definatly keep you updated. My goal for this week is going pretty good today I added cinnamon to my coffee. I’m experimenting to see what I like and how to cut out all that creamer. Until next time …. Good night

I miss all my creamer

Was up early today to get to work to drive so I packed my breakfast and lunch so when I arrived back at center I could warm everything up before heading out. I made almond joe oatmeal today delicious and sloppy joes with quinoa and green beans. Well I forgot the bun for sloppy joes so I just mixed the quinoa and meat all together, why not it’s going to the same area😀. For dinner tonight we made turkey tacos and I wanted to use lettuce as my shell well I ended up buying the wrong lettuce. So I filled up my shell with lettuce tomatoes little bit of meat, cheese, sour cream and salsa. Had black beans and Mexican rice in the side. Wanted another taco so I pretty much just made a salad on my plate and ate it that way without the shell😔. I did feel good today since I didn’t have so much processed food in my body. Then hubby and I shared a salted caramel cupcake I think I got my sweet fix for awhile. One thing I struggle with is I don’t bring snacks with me to work, so like today between my meals I was so hungry. When I got home a had cheese and crackers 6 each that tied me over until dinner time. But now that it’s bed time I’m hungry. I have to wait until morning to eat. Also for my goal on cutting creamer down this morning I put vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of creamer and 1 teaspoon of sugar that was it. It wasn’t bad but I sure do miss all my creamer. Until next time…. Good night

Lonnng weekend

So I haven’t wrote anything since my last post so I will recap and keep it short. So I ate at Panera bread for lunch and Chili’s for dinner on Friday with the kids. Chipotle on Saturday with my daughter (We shared a bowl and a bag of chips), Chili’s again on Sunday with the hubby for lunch and Subway on Monday on our way to get the kids. I know that’s a lot of eating out,I agree with you and I think I somewhat figured out why I tend to eat out so much. So I do a menu for every week and go grocery shopping for the week. So since money was a little tight in the pockets last week we didn’t have much choices in our house for meals until we got paid on Friday. Then when Friday came around I didn’t feel like grocery shopping and putting together a menu. Which trying to put a menu together that is appeasing to the kids and hubby is a little difficult. It’s also difficult when your starting out trying to look for good clean healthy eating recipes, it gets tough. But anyway the weekend kept going and I kept pushing off on grocery shopping and menu planning, I did try to put a menu together on Saturday but I was getting annoyed with not finding anything and everything looking and being the same recipes I gave up. That’s when I decided to go to Chipotle with my daughter to kept dinner. Then Sunday came dropped the kids off with my mom and on our way home stopped at Chili’s. Since Sunday was Valentines day we decided to stay home cook dinner and watch movies. Hubby made T- Bone steak with hollandaise sauce, twice baked potatoes, green beans, Texas toast and a Cesar salad. Also we had a bottle of Moscato, and we went to nadias cakes to pick up dessert which were cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries with Moscato inside, mmmmm delicious. Monday before we picked up the kids I was determined to get my menu and grocery shopping done which I accomplished. That’s when I realized that if I don’t have a menu for clean healthy eating I derail and get crazy on going out to eat and not carrying what I put in my mouth and body, I just want food and good food at that. Also I only do menu planning for dinner I really just wing breakfast and lunch so those are the next things I’m concentrating on. I did find some really good oatmeal recipes on Pinterest. I tried one this morning the one I tried was a german chocolate oatmeal. I have to say I was really impressed and highly enjoyed it. Also I did not add any sugar to it, I got my sweetness from the ingredients that where in the oatmeal. I will defiantly being doing this more often. Also I have a cup of coffee every morning during the week day and I bring it with me in my mug to work, I don’t like the taste of coffee so I put about 1/4 cup of flavored creamer in my coffee so I don’t taste it. So I wanted to make a change and try to figure out different ways to make my coffee taste good without all the added sugars. I bought a new creamer its made by silk?, but its a coconut vanilla milk. So this morning in my coffee I did 2tablespoons of that then 1 teaspoon of sugar and it wasn’t bad. Not what I’m use to but will get use to it. For dinner tonight we made lemon chicken quinoa for me, rice for the rest of family and green beans. I’m really trying to incorporate more vegetables into my menu then just meat and starch. Whether the family wants them or not they will be on my plate. Last thing I went to my doc appointment yesterday about my thyroid, when she touched my neck she said it was a little swollen so I’m getting a ultra sound done to it to make sure there aren’t any nodules on them. This is another stop in my direction to a healthy me. My goal for this week is to not put so much creamer in my coffee. eeekkk that’s going to be tough but I’m up for the challenge. Until next time…. Goodnight
