Back at it …

Back in April I posted about how I needed to lose weight and become healthy.  Well, I had good intentions but, I’m sad to say, I’m still overweight.

Since that post I have lost 11 pounds which is okay but I need to buckle down and lose the rest of these lbs.

I’ve decided to set “mini goals” (instead of one big one) so that I feel like I’m actually accomplishing something.  My first “mini goal” is to lose six pounds in the next couple weeks.  I think this goal is very doable and I’m excited to get this done!

Yesterday I ate the following:



I’ve never been much of a breakfast person.  I know all the “diet genius” people say you have to start your day with a good breakfast in order to lose weight but it just doesn’t work for me.

So instead of a big breakfast I had a Grande Peppermint Latte with Skim Milk at Starbucks:

I find the milk keeps me full until lunch and it’s a great way for me to get calcium.



This meal was not at all healthy and not very interesting.

I had a large bottle of water and half a bag of Cheez-its:

I know I need to eat a better lunch especially when I don’t eat breakfast.  I should probably keep some healthy snacks around for those times I’m to busy to grab a good lunch.



I wanted something fast for dinner so I made Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce:

It was good, fast and filling!


I need to incorporate more water and protein in my meals.


What kind of healthy snacks do you keep around for quick eats?

    11 pounds is still a big deal, girl! Slow and steady is the best way- just keep at it!

    Healthy snacks? Um. Well. I do pretzels and carrots (not at the same time). And often, my pretzels include being dipped in peanut butter. You said you needed more protein, right? 😉
