Thanks to Erin at She's a Big Star and Alex at Skinny Jean Pilgrimage for hosting! Y'all hop on over and check those gals out after you take a gander at some recipes I tried this week.
I weighed in at 156.0 this morning!!! I need to remember to always take a picture now. I'm still new at the picture-of-the-scale thing. It's an awkward thing for me to do, I always feel like I'm doing it wrong. Or I can't get the camera up in time to get a picture of it before it starts to scroll through which person I want to save that weight under. I'm getting better at it.
When I weighed in at 155.8 on NYE it was my 30 pound mark
I know my MFP badge says 29. I'm aware of that. It's because I didn't pay attention to decimals when I started trying to lose weight. I say I started at 185, but I didn't even bother to record the decimal. No clue what it was! Could've been 185.2 or 185.8. Who knows. So when I hit 155 I count it as a 30 lb loss
So in other words, today's weigh in kind of surprised me, but I'll take it. Yay!
Onto what must be my favorite subject: food!
Here's some photos of some new recipes I've tried recently:

This is a crappy picture that I forgot to take before I started chowing down. My apologies. It's red potatoes (fresh, cubed) and green beans (from a can) that were baked with some chicken tenderloins. I put Cajun seasoning on the chicken. The chicken was done before the potatoes, so I took it out of the dish and continued baking the beans/potatoes until they were done. It was way yummy. Me and the hubs both cleared our plates. I dipped it in some Dijon mustard--I love how spicy it is.
Even though my weigh in this morning was good, I still feel like this week has been a bust. Over the weekend I did not give a damn about what I ate. I didn't work out--but that's normal, I usually take the weekend off.
Then cue Monday, I didn't really eat BAD, but it wasn't fantastic. No workout.
Cue Tuesday, calorie count was fine but still no workout.
The point is not that I ate okay and didn't workout. The point is that I didn't care. Don't care. Present tense. I'm hoping it's TOM. Just a lull. Because I've been that way with the laundry and things around the house I normally love doing (yes I like to clean..or rather, I enjoy having a clean pretty home). I have just wanted to sit/lay. I was running some fever last night, so maybe I'm getting sick? I was at a normal temperature this morning though, so I don't know what's going on! Could be the weather. It's been stupid-cold in Arkansas and we had some sleet yesterday.
Maybe next week will be better, after I'm done with my little work trip.
