Spaghetti, Super Hubby & New Sheets

Hey loves!!

I hope you all had a great Monday and are getting ready & preparing your hearts for the Christmas season!!! I am loving it!!

I was really sick last week.  Tuesday night me and hubby went to watch the Hunger Games and eat Mexican.  My parents had given us a card with a bit of money for an anniversary present and so we went on the 5.00 movie night.  We had a great night and only paid 10 bucks out of pocket I believe!  And that is because we wanted popcorn and drinks, haha.

Well that night I realized I was feeling a bit froggy in my throat and then the next morning I woke up pretty congested.  Then fever followed with lots of sneezing, running nose, and now just a bit of coughing with a congested voice.  I feel MUCH better compared to last week. 

This weekend I stayed at home and watched Christmas movies all day.  I couldn't go to church Sunday so I watched it on tv & then the internet live.  I love my church!

Hubby has been so sweet.  He has cooked and cleaned and took care of me and grocery shopped and picked up Chinese.  He even wrapped all the rest of the presents for me Sunday.  And if you ever get a pretty wrapped present from us you can thank Jacob because I suck at wrapping presents.  :)

But tonight I came home and the floors were cleaned.  The house was cleaned. Laundry was done and he had spaghetti, garlic bread & salad all ready.  Complete with an ice cold diet coke. 

He is the bestest.  Ever.
It was so good. 
But today I went to Target and got us flannel plaid Christmas sheets!!!
I came home and decorated our bedroom a little bit and plugged in a new winter scented febreeze.  They smell the best the longest!
I hope yall are doing good, I wanted to check in and let you know what I have been up to!

Hey loves!!

Sorry I didnt post last night, I was busy cuddling this little sweet baby!!!

If anything at all makes me want kids...its tht moment when I am holding a newborn !

Ah, seriously yall he is EDIBLE!!!!

This is my cousin April's baby, by the way...I know I have mentioned his shower and such on the blog...

He is just the sweetest thing ever and his nursery is beautiful!! 
He was born on the day we left for vacation last week :( So this is the first I have gotten to see him!
I took Mommy and Daddy some KFC and got myself a chicken little and it was all downhill from there.  I suck at dieting.  But I am going to spare you those details and show what I had from lunch and breakfast!
 Pretty sure I didnt eat that banana, but the oatmeal and one egg I did eat!

I had this sweet and sour chicken Healthy Choice meal and it had one really piece of burnt chicken in it, other than that it was SO good!!

So, I contacted Healthy Choice and a few hours later they sent me an email appologizing over the burnt piece but saying they would send me some coupons in the mail so I could give them another try!  So sweet of them!  It was relly delicious despite the burnt piece I had to throw away LOL.

Later on I had one of these Kashi bars which are really good!  I love the chocolate chips in them!

Well today is Hubbys company Christmas party and I am excited to meet him over there for lunch.  They always have a delicious spread, I will try to snap a pic!
Happy Friday Everyone!  What are your plans today?

The People Have Spoken...

Have I told you lately that I love you....?

Haha, I love you all!  Thank you so much for the sweet comments on yesterdays post!

It seems like everyone enjoys the food pictures so I decided to take them today!

Hubby is finally home tonight and about to fall asleep watching Christmas Vacation.  I feel like I really need to do some more online shopping too!  Are you guys done Christmas shopping?  I feel so behind this year!

Well breakfast was a good one.  I had two hard boiled eggs and Baked Apple Oatmeal.

Then for lunch I had a Healthy Choice meatloaf meal, it was really good!  I am loving the Healthy Choice meals lately they have really stepped up their game!

I had some red grapes with it too, they are so good and sweet!

Later on I made some coffee and had a serving of Whales ( dollar store gold fish )
I also had a banana!  Dang it I forgot about the banana!
Not pictured. 
And then if you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw the bottle of Carolina mustard bbq sauce that I posted earlier.  This is made by a local winery and it is SO GOOD!!!
It went perfect on this chicken!  I baked the chicken tenderloins in the oven and had a cup of rice and broccoli with some spray butter and also put a sprinkle of cheese on there. 
Today was a great day!!! 
You guys really motivate me and I really appreciate all the comments and suggestions!!

I Just Dont Know...

I don't really know what to blog about. 

I kind of miss the old format where I took pictures of my food but apparently I got to a point where I was too busy or burnt out on it. 

I was doing pretty good with my diet and exercise until a few weeks ago and this past week when we were on vacation.  I still tried to be mindful though and my eating was way different from vacations in the past. 

Sometimes I look in the mirror and think, am I ever going to like what I see?

Or will there honestly be no stopping point?

Will I always love food and laziness more than health and skinniness? 

Have I just got to the point where I honestly cannot change my diet anymore because it would really just make me that unhappy?

I love my Mexican lunch Sundays and date night Fridays with the hubby.  I love cooking something delicious for us on the stove or in the crockpot on Saturdays.  I can eat healthy about 4 days out of the week pretty effortless but the three other days I usually mess up at least one meal. 

Why is it so difficult to stay on track and within my calories?  Calorie counting is pretty much the easiest thing ever.  Especially with apps like my fitness pal, I have no excuse. 

Of course there is no giving up.  I cant see my self ever going back to getting biscuits in the morning or eating fries with lunch everyday, it is just not who I am anymore.  Sure I have fries once in a while but it is very rare. 

Just this past Sunday on the way home from vacation we stopped at a burger king and I told Jacob it had been so long since I had been to one I barely knew what they had anymore!

Every month I think, this is MY month! I have got this!  Then my hormones throw me for a loop, or family drama makes me crazy or work has my stomach in a knot or whatever else excuse falls in my lap!  I feel like I will NEVER make it out of the 170s. 

But my question is, if I do have any readers left out there, what do you want to read on this blog?  I always try to do pictures of some kind.  More of a day to day random health related update?  Or food pics or what?  Let me know what you enjoy reading.  It will help make up my mind how to start blogging again.  I really miss it.  I love hearing from you all and comments make me immensely happy!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are getting ready for Christmas, I know we are!
