Here I am!

    Back and more committed then ever. Not only to weight loss but about feeling better about myself in general, which lately I've realized isn't just about my weight it's about me. I'm going to walk on my treadmill today when the baby goes for a nap. I don't think I'm ready to go back to jogging just yet, but I'm feeling leaps and bounds better then a few days ago.

     I have been craving chocolate like a mad woman. I have also been eating some, but sticking with the motto moderation is key. I had a piece of chocolate cake but fit it into my calories and last night I had a fudge brownie which put me over by 9 calories but I'm willing to live with it. I've planned my meals until Sunday and it might be sad but I am excited for all of them. Tonight is (surprise, surprise) a recipe from Skinny Taste. Caramelized onion, pepper and zucchini frittata, with green beans and dempsters rosemary and olive oil bread. It might seem like a weird combo but I'm still unable to eat some foods. I tried eating salad yesterday and the chewing just made it impossible I almost cried.

     I bought some portabello mushrooms at the grocery store yesterday. Adrian said I should pick one vegetable I've never cooked with a try a new recipe so I'm thinking some kind of stuffed mushroom. I'll have to do some searching in my cook books because I think my Hungry Girl cook book has a recipe that uses one instead of a hamburger patty, I'm not quite sure. If any one has suggestions, I'm open!!

     I semi-cheated today and WI, I guess it's not really cheating since I never chose a specific day to WI again. The scale is most definitely heading back in the right direction though. Today is the 9th so I guess I'll make official WI on the 15th and the 30th. I'll probably stick with those permanently. I feel less pressure when I weigh myself every 2 weeks or so. So, hopefully that gives me enough time to get back to where I was (162 forever, right?!) or maybe if I'm really lucky something even lower.

      It's a beautiful day today! If I don't get to walk while the baby is asleep then maybe we'll go out for one in the real world a little later!
