Cravings and Such.

Well... I am pregnant. 7 weeks to be exact and have been feeling under the weather all week. I hate this morning sickness which lasts all day. I've done all that the online help says. Ginger Ale, Ginger Snaps, Peppermint candies, saltine crackers, Fresca, and they only work while I'm consuming them.. with the exception of Fresca.. that was a horrible lie! Ugh!

Today though, well actually since last night, I've been craving something. Cilantro Lime Vinegrette(sp?) dressing. Its to be found on Cafe Rio's salads. Oh my goodness, that just sounds so good, with extra pico de gallo, guacamole, lime, no rice, no beans and extra pork barbacoa on the side! Isn't your mouth just melting? Mine is!!! The downside to this wonderful meal.. is well, today is Sunday and the nearest open Cafe Rio is in Park City. So here I sit, DYING, while other people are eating what is the ONLY thing that will make this world right.. today. haha... yes, I know, it's just a temporary fix.. tomorrow I might be onto something else.

I first food aversion is sushi. Just typing that word was hard. And the odd thing was a week and a half ago I was eating it like it was going out of style. I love fish.. especially if someone were to cook in in butter... oh my yummyness!!! :) No wait... the butter might be spoiling this for me.

Anyways.. thats what's going on here. :) Let's talk soon, okay?

Well Frick!

Let's see if this works, cause I in my brilliance just erased my whole entire blog, posts and everything!

I hate being computer illiterate! grrr!!



"I did a bad bad thing."

All day long that one line of that song has been stuck in my head. "I did a bad bad thing." What thing, you ask? Well, I let BJ make breakfast.. aaaaaand, I ate it! :( If I weren't trying to lose weight, this post would be non existent, but I am, so it is! As you know, I get 24 points of food to eat a day and if I plan my day right, I can eat a lot of yummy stuff! Today is NOT one of those days!

BJ made sausage fried rice with cheese.. yeah, it was as good as it sounds. Well, my serving of it cost me 15 points!!! Thats right, 15! No, I'm not kidding and yes that is a lot of points. I've kinda been in starvation mode today because of it. Well, not really, but I sure wish I hadn't of done that especially since it cost me eating my home made salsa(and chips!). Oh well, lesson of the day, don't let BJ cook for me, even though he means well!!!

Everyday is a fight for me to re teach myself new eating habits, but days like today seem to throw my hard work out the window. But I am a LOSER and will continue to be and lose this weight!

1.6lbs and going strong!

I just got back from Weight Watcher's and I lost 1.6lbs this week. Which puts my total weight loss at 14lbs!(Well, maybe 13 point something, lol). While listening to the teacher at this meeting, who speaks really really loudly, I thought how fun it'd be to be a ww teacher. Be in charge of a class a few times a week with fellow like minded people.

I think I'd be good at it. But I'm not skinny enough to apply. I think they want someone who has reached their weight loss goal.. and I'm about 21lbs away from that.

So for breakfast, doesn't fried eggs, sausage and toast with butter and jelly sound good? Mmmmm! Well, I can't have that, exactly. I mean I can have egg whites... maybe a piece or two of sausage and then lite toast, easy on the butter and hold the jelly. Though that doesnt sound as good.

Or there's always cheerios with honey and skim milk. Also, not as yummy.

Ok, off to the kitchen... talk soon.

Grandma's Banana Bread Recipie

3 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Mashed Bananas
1 Cup Oil
3 Eggs
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
1Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tsp Cinnamon

Mix dry together, then add everything else. Pour in well greased pans, bake for 350 degrees for one hour. Makes two loaves.

Ok, so this recipie is really yummy!! I LOVE it! After work tonight I started this because my bro in law was coming over and I knew that he and BJ would devour it. I knew as I was making it that I couldn't have any because I didn't have enough points left and my weigh in is tomorrow.
Yes, that's right, I am on Weight Watcher's. Its simple really, I need to lose weight and they are a system that works. Anyways after making the bread, then slicing it and serving it up, I escaped down to the basement to not be tempted. Then a question popped into my head... "How many points are each slice?" Which lead me with this breakdown...

3 Cups Flour- 31.5 points
2 Cups Sugar- 31 points
2 Cups bananas(well i used 3 bananas, that seemed like enough)- 6 points
1 Cup Oil- 57 points
3 Eggs- 6 points
(everything else had 0 pts)

Which makes the total for two loaves 131.5 points. Per loaf is 65.75 points. Granted I don't intend to eat a whole loaf, let alone two, but lets say I sliced a loaf into 10 pieces, that would be 6.5 pts per slice. Then you have to add the points for butter, because everyone knows a freshly baked slice of bread requires butter, and then a glass of milk to wash it all down. SO, for that few minutes of heaven I would have consumed 11.5 points. And I'm allotted only 24 per day.

Tomorrow starts a new week for me, so I might indulge with a slice, maybe sans butter, but I'd have to weigh the odds. Bottom line, that's a LOT of points for anything to eat. I mean, I could have a full meal consisting of pork stirfry, rice, ice cream and a diet dr. pepper for a lot LESS that that one slice of banana bread, good as it is.

As Weight Watcher's says, "I am a loser!" I am going to lose this weight and keep it off. And all the yummy banana bread in the world isn't gonna stop me.

Until next time!

Where have you been?

Hey folks. Well, I must say if you're not on Facebook(Shannon and Michele), what are you waiting for? I upload pictures and videos there. We can chat there if we're lucky enough to be on there at the same time. :) I'm just DONE with uploading new pictures here and facebook and myspace. SOOOOOOOOOOO, what I'm saying is... this will be my last upload on here for a while because I am lazy. :) Too lazy to constantly update this thing. You guys all rock cause you update it all the time and change your background and whatnot. But I'm just over it. Anywho.. I love you all! Here are some recent pictures.
