RFSC Wk 5 and GFCTC Wk 3 update and other stuff


I am sad.  There has been no weight lost this week.  I don’t know what is going on with that.  I have been eating clean, but the scale isn’t supporting me.  I can blame it on only getting in two exercise sessions this week.  Things just came up this week that didn’t allow me to get it in.  There was a massage, rain, an unexpected visit from my mom, drug testing for my new job (I start it on Monday) and just all around business this week.  The only other thing I can think of is that my portion size must be too big.  I am eating a lot of nuts.  I know they have a lot of calories so that could be to blame.  A big portion of the snacks in this new eating plan involve nuts of some sort.  So, with that being said I am going to work on scaling down the portions and being more mindful of how many nuts I eat.  I am also going to get in more exercise this week.  I want to see a good loss on the scale at the end of the week. 

On to happier things.  We went to a local amusement park this weekend.  We played some mini golf.  It was the kids first time and I captured a couple of pictures of them.  It was pretty cute.  We made it through about half the holes before the kids got cranky. 


We went on a couple of rides, did the batting cages and played some arcade games.  It was nice to get out and have some fun. 

Last night I caught my kids actually sitting next to each other in my sons room watching tv. 


This last picture is just because my daughter looks so cute in it. 


Have a great week everyone.

  4. Such cute photos of your kids :)

    I used to snack a lot on nuts, but not only can those calories add up, but I found that the salt in them was really bloating me up! Now I just stick to a handful of raw almonds, pecans, or cashews and even then, rarely.

    Good luck with your new job, and with reaching your week 6 goals :)

    1. All the nuts I eat are raw so it's not the salt, but they still have a lot of calories.
