Taco Salad Night & Hungry all day

Hey loves!

Sorry this post is up SO stinkin late, I had a late night last night!

We had taco salad night and my bestie came over to eat!

Anyways I will get right to it...

Now first let me say I hit 30 lbs LOST officially on saturday!!! I think I was at 176.4!!!! Amazed I tell you!!

I did pretty good this weekend but yesterday I was ragin with emotions and cravings!! UGH I started off great but totally let PMS get the best of me.  HOWEVER I still tried to make " good" choices! LOL...you will see...

Woke up 7am, gym bag packed ready to go, however I was an hour LATE.  FAIL.

Ok breakfast was a winnerrrrr (haha) !

Blackberries, egg and cheese on english muffin with nonfat vanilla yogurt!
Lunch was good STILL!
I cant get the pic to upload on my phone so I will insert it tonight when I get home to my dear Wifi!
But it was an aldi's frozen spaghetti meal and a side salad. 
Nice, good cals...good choice.
I even had a FREE chick sandwich at Chick fila that I gave to hubs because I didnt want to mess up my eating LOL.
Ok SO then I got hungry and mad about something at the same time...hmm funny how much our feelings are tied to our eating habits.
I felt like I didnt get enough protein in lunch though, I should have had at least an egg on my salad.
SO, I went through the Mcdonald drive through! UGH!
However I ONLY got a grilled chicken snack wrap and diet coke, because lets face it, its monday and I need all the caffiene I can get.  I was suprised and happy to find it was only 1.59 for the wrap and 190 cals if you get it WITHOUT DRESSING OR CHEESE.  Which is what I did, I put a pack of ketchup on it.
THEN later at work I got snacky again for a SWEET.
I was hungry ALL the REST of the day!!!
Yall sometimes I have days where I can ignore cravings and not even GET them, not even be really hungry but some days, espically PMS ones, I get ravenous!!!
But in real Lauryn-fashion I am going to show you the good, bad and the ugly lol.
Yes that would be a peanut butter twix in my grubby little hand.  Just looking at this makes me want another one but Im not gonna!!!!!
I picked it, besides the brownies, muffins and reese STICKS in the vending machine because I could see the cals were 250.  Not great but not AWFUL either.  The other items I wanted, I couldn't see cals on...I could only imagin the calorie horror. Haha. Also this had peanut butter which I thought would be more filling.
I ate it in like 2 seconds, but whatever.
Then I drove 30 mins and got home and decided I could use an oatmeal pie, 140 cals.  Fabulous.
After all, dinner takes a while to cook, doesnt it.
DINNER was a winneeerr again.
Baked taco shell!! My friend got me this thing you put a regular tortilla in and bake in the oven and it makes a shell!!!  Mex rice and beans with cheese on them.

Then my naughty bestie insisted we get ice cream.  Yes I am going to admit this even though I dont want to and you will all think I am a fatty but I want you to know iam still CONCIOUS and trying to make good decisions.

I got a ice cream bad that was called Moooo or something. Haha.  It was cheap, 50 cent and low cal, 170.  Hubs was like 210, but I got the less calorie one!!

Well its not a victory but its better than diving head first into a big mac and some ben and jerrys.

Have a great day loves!!! See you again tonight!!!
