I am sitting here - ate my breakfast and drinking my morning coffee and finished checking my email and stuff and thought I would write a post before I start my day of packing a little. I got some new Sweetleaf Stevia drops yesterday at Sprouts in cinnamon flavor. Very good.
If you don't know me that well, I just want to say that I am always honest and truthful about my weight and the food I eat. I never pretend to be someone I am not. I want you to know that I am a REAL person that got very lucky in finding the right thing to help me become the person I always should have been.
Lately I have been going through a lot of stress and my hormones going wacky from the almost-menopause (I thought anyways). It stopped for 2 and 1//2 months in the beginning of this year and then came back every month and now its back after only 3 weeks. That might be also why my weight went up. This morning it went down 1 lb and is at 152.
I think the main thing I've learned now is to not let that discourage me. I'm not sure if the men's weight jumps around like ours does, but mine jumps up and down 5 lbs in a heartbeat. So once you get to your ideal weight, give yourself a 5 lb window to go between and never go over that.
Yes I still weigh myself every night and every morning. I know its kind of kookey but if you were as big as me for as long as I was and then manage to find the miracle (which is only food - right?) you would get kind of OCD about the scale too. I just NEED to make sure that what I ate that day was not too much or the wrong types of foods.
I can NEVER let ME gain that back and get back to the OLD me.

My breakfast yesterday morning, was a muffin with a few blueberries inside and my homemade coconut butter on top, and turkey bacon.
When I got back I made another batch of the cauliflower tortillas. This time I put a little bit of shredded parmesan cheese, garlic, red pepper, italian spices to give them a bit more flavor.
My snack was 2 of those Almond-butter-omg-cookies
I did manage to get a walk in between the rain with my furry girls.
Berry-cheesecake-desert one for each of us with some RediWhip on top of course.
He keeps saying I have to make my stuff sweeter - I keep saying I make them the way I like them cause I am the one eating 98% of them - SO.... Eat it and like it or Don't. Its pretty simple.
OK well - I gotta go. Have a nice day.
