Couple Days In...

I still feel fat. However, I've been keeping up with the eating good. Last night when I got home I decided to make myself a grilled cheese. Now before you roll your eyes and say, "I thought she JUST said she was eating good"...slow your role. The bread was whole wheat. I used this stuff called Smart balance (Light), which i'm still not sure exactly what it is. Some type of buttery spread. Looks like butter. Smells like butter. I couldn't really tell ya if it tastes like butter because I'm not inclined to eating butter out of the tub, but it did the trick with the grilled cheese, so it works for me. And I used weight watchers cheese. Now normally when I throw some cheese of the grilled sort on the George, I keep all the supplies out because I know I will be wanting to make another, and possibly another after that. So as soon as I buttered up my brown bread, yum (sarcasm) and took the cheese out of the package, I packed everything up and put it all away. For a lazy ass like myself, not having easy access to the supplies is reason enough for me to not make another. And I actually didn't! And I suppose I was semi-satisfied with only having one.

Tonight, sad to say, I actually called my parents to tell them what I had made myself for dinner because I was so proud. I feel like such a Suzy home-maker when I cook. Doesn't even matter what it is. If I apply heat to an edible substance I feel like I'm the next Emeril. I made myself a grilled chicken breast (on Georgie boy of course) and broccoli. Although I put way too much water in with the broccoli and I literally had to shake the water out of it before putting it on my plate, I'd say it came out decent! I use paper plates for no reason other than that I don't want to actually have to LOAD my dishwasher, God forbid. So once I finished my meal, I realized that the ghetto crap plate had completely dissolved on the bottom because of all the water from the broccoli. So I basically ate a meal straight off my counter top. Awesome. Couldn't tell you the last time I cleaned it.

I have lost 2 pounds so far. I suppose that's pretty good for only 3 days. I'm a results girl though, and that's always been my problem. If I can't drop 20 pounds in a week and I don't have ripped abs by day three then I usually give up because what I'm doing OBVIOUSLY isn't working. So here's to being patient and changing to a healthier life style! Not gonna try to pretend I didn't day dream about alfredo sauce today though. Wish me luck for the weekend! Lots of drinking ahead of me. Guess maybe I should start working out (aka moving) to try to balance some of this out!
