You basically just keep track of your calories. To start you put in your weight and height and how much you want to lose a week (I think 2 pounds is the top) and it tells you how many calories to eat. Pretty simple.
So I've gone from eating half a box of Girl Scout cookies plus a day to around 1300 calories. Yeah Me!
I was a total bitch last night and this morning. It had nothing to do with my husband trying to finish our taxes and him getting frustrated about something I did (put in the medical we paid out in deductions to see if it would make a difference-it didn't) and he couldn't figure out how to undo and then this and that. Oh and trying to help Trevor find something right at bedtime.
I'm telling you, it's just too much to handle while you are having the cookie withdrawals.
I ended up screaming something not very nice and going to bed. Then I had to get up 12 more times to help him some more. It wasn't pretty.
So I got up this morning and damn, still in a crabby mood! Poor Trevor got yelled at to hurry up for the bus over and over. I'm definitely making myself get up earlier tomorrow. It's not fair that the poor kid gets yelled at to hurry up every morning when I should just wake him up earlier. Ahhh if only Mommy was a morning person.
In other news, here's a few things I made
Shepard's Pie Lightened Up, this is a really nice website. This recipe was easy to follow, didn't take too long and was only 290 calories for a pretty large piece. I had the leftovers for lunch today and it was good reheated too. I think it would be a little bit better with just a little more tomato something or other.
I also cooked up a batch of veggie soup. This is a Weight Watcher's recipe. I've made it a bunch of times. It's pretty filling. One recipe is 6 servings so I divided it up so it would be easy to take to work. It's 61 calories a serving. Not too bad.
This recipe we had tonight. Easy Garlic Chicken. It said to put it in a 500 degree oven. I thought that would be too hot for my glass baking dish so I used the metal one. When I took it out it was all bubbling up. I think I cooked it an extra ten minutes because it didn't look done enough before that. I thought this recipe was "ok" nothing to write home about. I think it would be better with a little soy sauce on it.
That pan should be fun to clean though, don't you think?
Add some redneck dipping sauce and it's delicious :)Pin It
