Sorry it’s been so long…

So it’s been 67 days since I got married.  My weight was 152 pounds and I was so happy.  I had lost 30 pounds in 10 months with a lot of hard work.  So here I am 67 days later and 5 pounds heavier :-(

And I know why…

I have stopped exercising, I started to eat late at night again, and I haven’t been tracking what I’m eating.

So my new years resolution is to start it all over again, I mean I’m down 25 pounds from last Jan when I started working at being healthy, I just need to get back into the mindset and I would really really like to feel comfortable in a bathing suit this year and maybe even wear a bikini for the first time in my life!

So i love the library!  I think it’s one of the best places you can go.  I love searching for books, most don’t keep my attention and I never read them.  But they do have magazines and movies you can take out too!  When I went to the library the other day I found this book, Cook this Not that.
This book is awesome.  It’s full of anything you would crave from a restaurant like applebees or Fridays, and makes the recipe in a lower calorie, more healthy way!  It has a picture on every page and lists the calories and difference from the restaurant’s calories which are pretty ridiculous and gross if you think about it.
I really suggest you grab the book and take a look at it.  WARNING- the pictures will make you want the food

Before and after.
So I weighed myself today and it told me that I gained 2.2 pounds… I don’t really see how that is possible because I excersized and ate right unless something was just off last week when it said I lost weight… I don’t know, I felt aggravated because I worked hard and ate right and uh it’s just frustrating, but then I think at how far I have come and I made a before and after for myself to motivate myself and show myself that I have come so far and I can do it!  I just hate my stomach, I have always had a stomach and I have never worn a bikini, I would love to just not look pregnant for once.  So I’m going to keep working hard and pushing myself and I know I will get there one day! :-)

Low Calorie Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients:


Directions:


I was looking for something to make for dinner last night since I was actually home to cook.  I got the idea to make a low calorie chicken pot pie.  The one you buy in the store are super high in calories and fat so I took a recipe I found and made it my own.

Nutritional Info (this is just for the filling, you need to add 156.5 calories to the total meal if you use the puff pastry or add calories for whatever else you may use)
