Losing the Baby Fat: Thursday’s Meals

losingthebabyfat weight loss update

I know it’s almost over, but “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

We had a great day aside from most of us being sick again. I need to get to the store and pick up some homeopathic medicines, which we are mostly out of. I know we have some homeopathic cough medicine somewhere in a box, but I haven’t come across it. Each day we’re unpacking a little more, and we’re surprised and thrilled when we find things we’ve been missing. :)

Anyway, here’s what my meals looked like today:

Breakfast: waffles and hash browns

Snack: coffee, juice (carrot, apple, pear), crackers — Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I do drink coffee and juice at the same time. It’s not uncommon for me to have both juice and coffee at the table during a mealtime. ;)

Lunch: potato leek soup, toasted bread n’ butter, and  juice (carrot, apple, pear)

Snack: popcorn, coffee, and a few chips

Dinner: potato leek soup (It was so good, we had it for lunch AND dinner. :) There isn’t any left.)

Dessert: cupcake (My daughter made these from scratch with help from her little brother, and they turned out to be delicious. I had to show some restraint, because I could have totally eaten more than one.)

Late Night Snack: tea (while I occasionally have my husband add rice milk to my tea – since he is the one that usually makes it for me – I normally have it with nothing in it…plain with no sugar or sweeteners)

What did you eat today?

    Sandra, the potato leek soup looks delicious. So do the cupcakes your daughter made. I like how she decorated them with the X and O, very nice.

    Today we made some chocolate covered brownie balls. They are so good but very addictive. I was glad to pass some along to my tax lady tonight when we saw here. She love chocolate and since I am trying to lose weight I thought it was best I didn’t keep all of them in the house.

    I hope you and your family have a very nice Valentine’s Day.

      Hi Shelly! Thank you for the compliment on the soup! I can’t wait to make it again.

      And good idea to share the brownie balls with your tax lady! It’s sooo tempting to grab sweets when they’re readily available, so it’s better to share or have others in your family eat them before the temptation hits. :)

    So I almost bought a big ol’ thing of carrot juice yesterday… but I feel like that’s something I have to work up to. Maybe I should try one of these carrot juices with other fruits that you keep drinking.

    • Sandra says:

      Hi Sarah! Well, to be honest, I don’t drink straight carrot juice that often. :) I drank it while I was staying at my mom’s house because of the unhealthy foods we were eating.

      If I were you, I’d mix about half carrot + half of some other variety of juice that has fruit in it. Drinking straight carrot juice is just like you’re drinking a carrot. :) I definitely prefer it with even just a little bit of fruit.

      Way to go on getting that juice, though! It’s a start!

Thanks so much for stopping by The Sensible Mom! Your input is greatly appreciated.
