Checking In

imom Gets on the Scale!

I didn't set any goals for last week except cutting the wheat out of my diet, yet again. I did a pretty good job of it. For carbs I stuck with potatoes, mostly sweet potatoes which are a favorite of mine and rice. I also had corn tortillas a couple times.

I made a big pot black bean and turkey chili, which I'll post the recipe to later today or tomorrow, it's very low cal, low fat and yummy!

I didn't do any exercise last week. My tooth is healing nicely, but I came down with a bad cold that I'm fighting. My exercise goal for this week is to get back to it. I would like to walk 3 days and go to Curves 3 days! I also plan to keep the wheat out of my diet this week.

As far as this blog goes I'd like to post a couple recipes this week, or maybe just show what a typical non-wheat eating day looks for me, or both!

Man I ramble don't I?!

Oh and the really good news this week is this morning when I was putting on my jeans I noticed they felt loose. I haven't been on the scale in a few weeks, but when I got on I was down 7 lbs from last time! I'm pretty happy with that. That's a total of 12 lbs since sometime in May! I can live with that.


  1. Woot! Nothing better than when the clothing starts to feel loose!

    I'm looking forward to those recipes. Glad the tooth is finally healing and hope the cold goes away FAST!

    Did you know that the sweet potato is one of the most nutritious vegetables?!?

  2. WOOT! Skinny jeans!!

    Can't wait for the recipes....I LOVE Black Bean Chili:)

  3. Go Slim! I cant wait to get me some skinny jeans!
    Keep up the great work!
