Yesterday I had my first weigh-in since returning to the dieting/bloggin world a week ago (going to try and weigh in every Tuesday) and it wasn't bad I guess but I was hoping for more, but aren't we always? So I am down -1.4 lbs this first week back. It is depressing to think I had already lost this weight earlier this year, 5 more lbs for my all-time low so far...I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

I was craving some protein this morning so I had an omelet with 1 egg, some egg whites, 2 slices bacon, spinach and little shredded cheese (sorry about orange plate!):

Later...dang!!!! I had some VERY good grilled chicken for lunch and was so hoongry I forgot to take a picture. Trust me, it was some good protein. I also had a couple of Nabisco Fig Newtons to take care of some need for a sweet.

It continues to be hot and humid here. I will be glad when it is time to make soup. I love all different types of soup but the thought of it right now is blech with this heat. It is hard to believe fall is just a few weeks away. That is my favorite time of year.

Haven't been smiling alot lately, here is a picture of my youngest niece, she always makes me smile--


  1. I love summer, but when it climbs over 85 degrees I enjoy it most from a swimming pool, and if I don't have a swimming pool available I just get cranky!

    Your niece is cute!

  2. I was long addicted to junk food which caused a lot of extra pounds. I knew that in order to lose weight I had to change my eating habits and lifestyle. I started going to the gym. I must say, it was very hard at the beginning since I was not accustomed to doing any sports from my childhood. I strongly needed some additional force to kick me off the sofa each time. I was thinking of some energy drinks, but finally decided to go the natural way. Moreover, I have found plenty of advices on how to increase your energy and endurance here
    Following a number of tips during a month, I have already felt the results! Now I am much more energized in the gym. I’ve started losing my pounds and keep working on healthier nutrition.
