Food and monthly cravings

Well, it is getting to be 'that' time of the month for me so I'm a bit worried about my eating and exercising suffering. I didn't end up doing a workout at all today and the food thing? You'll see in a sec...

Anyway, it is what it is. I'm starting to feel more relaxed about the whole weight loss process taking as long as it takes. I think the biggest key will be not giving up. Just day by day doing as good as I can THAT day.

Here's how I did today:

Breakfast...Whole wheat english muffin with egg white and salsa. Yummy!

Lunch...Tuna, tomatoes, and cucumbers on wrap with banana and more cucumbers on the side.

Snack: Fiber bar (trying not to eat this everyday, but so yummy and filling!) and apple slices.

I had to drop the kiddo off at church and decided to run into the store for snack stockpile for PMS this week. This is what happens when you shop alone while you have PMS:
I know! I'm weak, what can I say? :)

I had a small plate of whole wheat pasta with melted Velveeta and lemon pepper. It was a side dish for the rest of the family and I needed to sample it! ;)

Dinner: Lean Cuisine panini sandwich with a side salad. I usually try to have a side salad with most meals and I try to fill half my plate with the salad to leave less room for the other food! I don't go for many fixin's in my salad, just baby romaine, salad dressing, and Parmesan cheese.

Doesn't look much like the picture on the box, does it? It really is pretty good though.

It's still early so I have no idea if I'll snack tonight (but I'm pretty sure I will) so this probably isn't the end...but it's all you get for now! I hope you all don't mind all the pictures, by the way. I've always really enjoyed blogs that have a ton of pictures (and I LOVE weight loss blogs that picture their food!) but I know that isn't every one's taste.

I'll no doubt eventually grow tired of it, so hang in there! :)


  1. You're getting better with that camera, Miss. Today's meals looked less fuzzy than yesterday's;0)

  2. Mmmm. Your dinner looks really good. I know what you mean about getting use to weight loss taking some time. Loosing one or two pounds (or less) can really get me down and make me feel like giving up, but if I had started a year ago and stuck to it I would be at goal by now! So hang in there. I am with ya! :) We can do it no matter how long it takes.
