Happy Tuesday! One day closer to Friday :-) AND Biggest Loser tonight! Woo Hoo!


So tonight I do my weekly weigh in. Not sure what to expect but it would be really awesome to get out of the 240's. That would mean at least a 1.9 pound loss. Do you think I did it? Hmm I guess we'll see.

Food has been pretty darn awesome, if I do say so myself. The weekend was, of course, full of eating out but I think I made some pretty good decisions. Saturday for lunch I had a stuffed tomato and a glass of milk. Dinner was Fragrant Chicken at this Chinese Restaurant called "Imperial Garden". It was chicken and veggies in some kind of spicy sauce, served with white rice on the side. I ate about half of the chicken/veggie concoction and only a little bit of the rice. I'm more of a brown rice type of girl. I also had water to drink of course.

Sunday I ate at a place called "The Silver Eagle" with my mom and step-dad. I ordered the chicken tenders with a side salad and water. I ate the entire salad with a little bit of bleu cheese dressing and about half of the chicken tenders. I took the other half home and ate those for dinner Sunday night.

Sunday night after the Vikings beat the Packers (big smiles!!) I whipped up 6 turkey burgers. I made 3 "cheesy horseradish" burgers and 3 "salsa stuffed" burgers. I followed both recipes using half the ingredients (since I was only making 3 of each instead of 6) and subbed low fat mayo instead of regular mayo in the salsa one and fat free shredded cheddar cheese instead of regular fat cheese in both recipes. I also added 1tbsp of my favorite horseradish to the cheesy burgers to add some flavor. I had one of the salsa ones yesterday for lunch and it was AMAZING! I spread a little avocado on top with some sautéed portabella mushrooms and a few tomato slices. TO.DIE.FOR. I had one of the cheesy burgers last night with the same toppings. That burger was delish too but next time I would probably cut the worsterschier sauce in 1/2 because I thought it was a little overpowering.

Exercise has been good I guess, I just need to get in more of it. For some reason that is still a problem for me. I went to the gym Sunday night, last night and I'll be going again tonight. I need to start making Friday and Saturday mandatory if I'm going to take off Wednesday and Thursday. Last night was abs night which is now my new favorite night because I.LOVE.THE.BOSU.BALL more than I can even express :-)

So…weird question for all you bloggers out there! Does anyone else have/had in the past a slightly lopsided body? Now let me explain what I mean by that. If you've taken a peek at my progress pictures you know I have plenty of rolls to go around. I was looking at myself in the mirror this morning admiring my rolls getting smaller and noticed that the rolls on the left side of my body seem to be slightly smaller than the rolls on my right side. Now I don’t know if that side of my body started smaller because I know fat doesn’t just sit evenly on your body but I also don’t want the cause to be that I'm unpurposely working one side harder. What are your thoughts? Do you think everything will even out eventually or do you think it's something that I'm doing causing this?

Anyways, there's some fun stuff going on in blogger world that you should definitely check out if you haven't.

1. Doug is starting a challenge for the month of November. Definitely head over to his page and check it out, it's going to be fun! And God knows we all need some extra help over the holidays.

2. Speaking of extra help Jen, a priorfatgirl and MizFit have decided to team up to pair people with others in need of motivation. Check out Jen's page to see how you can be a part of this.

Well that's all for today folks, just remember the weekend is almost here! (haha)


  1. hey girl!! no worries, spot reducing doesn't happen, so you can't lose fat on one side of your body faster from working out a certain side. This is just the way your body is losing the fat, and it will eventually even out. Keep it up!

  2. sorry i donno whats wrong with the link


    mmm burger

  3. Sounds like you're doing great girly! I'm so proud of you and the progress you've made. I need to learn a thing or two from you...

    I think you may see some lopsidedness now but as you continue to lose weight and work-out it'll even out. I wouldn't worry about it too much!!

  4. Glad things are going pretty well for you.

    Take care and best wishes.

    :-) :-).
