Tonight I came home and made myself a delicious meal. A BLT on light bread, with fat free mayo and low sodium bacon, roasted asparagus and tomatoes and cucumber with fat free feta. Don't forget the water either. I'm sure some people might look at my little meal and think "What's the big deal?". Well let me tell you that it's a big deal to me. Mostly because I am not a cook, I don't really enjoy cooking and have spent most of my life avoiding it. However, lately I've really began to take pride in my meals. It's not that they're amazing tasting intricate dishes that only a foodie could appreciate, it's more that they're healthy and I made them myself. I really take great pride in this. Yesterday I even made some mango salsa, grilled some pork chops and roasted some sweet potatoes. I must say I am rather proud of myself at the moment. :) Also I'm super in love with BLT's right now. I wish I had remembered to buy an avocado so I could have added a bit of that. Mmmmm....heaven!

This really isn't a post about love I just suddenly had that song stuck in my head, gotta love the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's been kind of rough going lately. After my great 4.2 lbs loss, I had a 1.4 lbs gain. I really think it was all water because I was down on Saturday then went out Sat. night and had bbq on Sunday. By the time Tuesday rolled around I think I was still a lil dehydrated or at least thats what I keep telling myself. Ha! I skipped WW this week because my brother and cousin were in town and I was at my Grama's every night eating crap. I realize that those weeks are the times it's best to go to meetings and weigh in but I just didn't want to have to face the scale. Yes, I'm a coward at times but who isn't? This week I've definitely been half assing it but I'm glad to say that this morning I stepped on the scale and I'm down. This put me in a great mood. Directly after that I lost a $1.25 to the washing machine which put a slight damper on my mood however, I went to the grocery store after that and only spent $40. That in its self is enough for me to be super happy. Its a beautiful day outside which is only adding to my delightful mood this morning. Also yesterday I spent the day at the pool and managed to get slightly burnt. While it's not exactly comfortable I know it'll turn into a nice golden tan. Everyone knows that tan fat looks better than white fat. Hooray!!!!
