think thin thursday

Is there already a "Think Thin Thursday" going around?
I don't know. But if there isn't, I'm starting one.

A couple weeks ago I said that I was turning the way we eat around.
Better foods all around. I don't care if I have to downgrade other hings.
So I started this week.
I'm down one pound exactly as of today.
Keep in min I was in Florida on vacation Thursday to Sunday,
so I'm pretty sure that didn't help matters a whole lot.
I did stick to fish, chicken, and veggies...
but then I also had froyo and all kinds of snacks on that long car ride.
(By the way, we were completely out of her minds for taking
two small children on a 9 hour drive and only staying 2 days in between.
Never, EVER will we do that again if we can help it!)

For breakfast, I've been having a bagel with a little bit of cream cheese,
or oatmeal, and fruit.

For lunch I've been packing a healthy sandwich (whole grain bread,
lean meats, no mayo & just mustard) with fruit or veggies.
I usually take a pack of crackers and a yogurt or something to snack on, because it seems like I get nauseated at the beginning of the treatment if I don't.
For supper, it's been lean meats, fat free cheeses and sour cream, whole grains, veggies.
But I could still definitely cook healthier things --
I'm just trying to use what we have.

LOTS of water, which is good to flush the chemo ou of my system too.

It seems like the weight is easier to lose on the weeks I don't have chemo.
Maybe it's just me, I don't know.

I don't have any pictures to share today
but as soon as I get up the nerve to post some with my super short hair,
 I will share.
It'll do me good.

If you have any recipes you'd like to share, I'd be happy to try them out.
One of my favorite bloggers shares "skinny" recipes
She's lost a lot of weight over the past couple years
and she's a great inspiration.
Mama Laughlin is hilarious to boot!
