Winner, winner chicken (soup) dinner

Thank you all who entered. You can be quite clever. I enjoy it. I have some other questionable pictures (not of me or the babies) that I think would be fun (yet tacky) to post for your captioning. Um....I will ponder that.

So the soup winner is A Thinner Katie. If you have not checked out her blog, you should. She just hit 60 pounds lost! Woohoo!!! Inspirational. And she has 2 small children. Amazing. Not sure how you all do it.

This week has been weird to say the least. I must confess I had 3 cheat meals last weekend. Yup, 3. I ate well during the day it was just 3 dinners but then again that is a bit much. I have been in eating mode ever since. Not bad things really just like some extra baked chips here, handful of almonds there, etc.

I have discovered almonds. Yum. I used to be a nut hater. Not anymore. Especially the honey roasted almonds. Addictive.

I also have not been feeling great this week. I am still working out a ton. In fact, Monday I did 2 hours of body attack. My body has been tired ever since. I want to take a day off from work to sleep. When you teach it is not really worth a day off but I want to. I even got a big wave of nausea yesterday. I had ask the kids a few times to back away. Not enjoyable. At all.

I am thinking it is sinuses or lady troubles or a combination. Lucky me! If I still feel yucky after school I might just not workout (I cannot believe I typed that) and take a nap.

Yesterday before I worked out I had to stop at the store and buy some almonds and strawberries to eat. This is how I know I have changed. I am a fruit hater too but man I had to have some strawberries (and a few almonds). I only ate a few but after my killer workout I ate more. Didn't count those calories either. So not like me.

This week may see a huge gain on the scale. Oh well. Maybe next week I will feel like my old self. I am not disappointed in this week though. I guess you just have to deal with feeling different sometimes. This is new to me as I usually always feel the same. I look forward to the weekend and some extra sleep.

Have an enjoyable day!

Yeah, sorry you feel yucky. But I like the fruit and nut changes! Good stuff.

You do just have take these different life moods in your stride. Sounds like you are coping well. I tend to give up... and bury head in the sand!

I love almonds, especially the Blue Diamond wasabi soy ones. Just a handful is enough though. They are pretty salty.

Hope you feel better soon! I love nuts- but I can OD on them! lol I tend to say NO, but I do like that its healthy fat. I drooled at the $5 a pack strawberries yesterday- I can't see paying that amount for them! But I ended up buying blackberries $3.50 and raspberries $3.50- humm I could of had the strawberries! lol

Hope that you're feeling better soon!

Awww, I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling yucky. I hope you feel better soon!

My current nut obsession is pistachios. Delicious, relatively low calorie considering their nuts, and shelling them takes so much time that you feel like you're eating a lot more than you are.

Hmmm, not much energy, increased appetite . . . have you taken a pregnancy test?
