2 x Fit n Active wraps - 200 calories
1.5 serves chicken salsa - 429 calories
28g shredded 2% cheese - 80 calories
sour cream - 60 calories
guacamole - 30 calories

Ok this is where things went a little pear shaped. The above is about 750 calories and if I had stopped there I would have been ok. BUT I ate some more guacamole, some more chicken and I went way over.

And I kind of lost count.


Oh I ate dessert after that too.

1 x Smart ones toffee sundae - 140 calories

I am estimating I consumed about 1700 calories roughly. And that's ROUGH!!

30th January:

Weigh-in day

So I haven't been posting my weigh-ins. The last one was back in November!!

I have been slowly losing since then, sticking to counting calories and getting in some exercise. I have done a couple of virtual 5k's with an online fitness group I am part of. I did one just this past Monday in honour of Australia Day.

So I weighed in this morning and got this:

So almost 6lb in 2 months. And seeming I am really close to my goal weight, that is pretty good. I have always been a slower loser which doesn't bother me at all. I don't have lose skin or anything like that.

I need to get within 2lbs of 146lb to go back to WW without paying. So I am pretty close!!

Hoping to get there by the end of February. Will be hitting the gym as much as possible!

Food Diary 28/01

I am back with food diaries!! Wooooo! Kate will be happy! ;)

I was off to the gym this morning so I just had a small breakfast:

I headed to the post office to mail off some clothes I sold (yay for losing weight and selling my bigger sizes!!) then hit up Food Lion for a few groceries. I decided to grab a couple of protein bars that I keep reading about and see how they are. My "lunch" was this:

Big News & updates

2922E92E-A514-40E7-83FE-01C643D10B67-5250-000003F7F34FE873 photo 2922E92E-A514-40E7-83FE-01C643D10B67-5250-000003F7F34FE873-1_zps699c46db.jpg

Someone got their drivers license FINALLY!!!!!

I have had a few people make snide remarks about how long it took for us to do this. Well let me just take a minute to address this. When you have never had a US drivers license, your auto insurance more than triples. So it was a financial thing for the most part. PLUS we only have 1 car and so even if I had my license, most of the time I don't have access to a car, so there was no real point.

But we finally decided it was time and I got it! I aced all the tests. I didn't get 1 question wrong in the written test and aced the driving test too. It's been so awesome being able to run to the store while Billy is asleep or go to the YMCA to work out. Which I have done a couple of times already! WOOO!!

285EEFC7-AED3-40B9-9E25-7AF10E546879-5250-000003F7EB287E9F photo 285EEFC7-AED3-40B9-9E25-7AF10E546879-5250-000003F7EB287E9F-1_zps85b75732.jpg

So I haven't updated on here in FOREVER!! So bad!! So what else is happening. Well I am slowly getting back down to my goal weight. I am now around 151lb. It's been kind of slow going with Thanksgiving & Christmas but things are back to normal and with me being able to get to the gym that will hopefully put things on full gear. I REALLY want to start going to back to Weight Watchers but I need to get down within 2lb of my goal weight, 146lb or else I have to pay, and I want to do that.

Billy has been working a lot as usual. He is on a new schedule which is good and bad. Which is also pretty normal. Ashley is good. Still loving school and being a great kid.

I am going to try to post food diaries again and other things. I also am going to start looking for some part time work too. That will be a big help.

Hope everyone is good!
