Empty Fridge

May 12, 2009 at 8:25 pm 21 comments

I guess I thought I had more food in there then we did we currently have yogurt, eggs, blackberries, and some bread as well as some condiments.  I have no fresh produce and it’s making me nuts!  We leave Friday so I’m guessing we’re going to be digging in the freezers for meals for the next 2 nights.

For breakfast I planned on having cereal and yogurt, well I totally forgot the yogurt.  I also had no money to get milk from the vending machine.  So my breakfast was dry cereal.  As you can imagine this did not do a good job of filling me up.

Lunch was part of cleaning out the fridge,  my parents actually left for vacation a few days ago so I’m doing my part in cleaning their fridge out as well.  They had a stuffed bread last week for dinner, it was stuffed with sauce, cheese, and chicken breast.  It was delicious and I was totally satisfied from this meal.

For dinner I had an opened jar of sauce I had to use before we left, I also had some cleaning to do so I made a super quick dinner of whole wheat angel hair pasta, and meatless meatballs.

Delicious simple dinner in between chores.

I’m pretty much all packed for vacation minus the things I use daily.  I’m shocked because typically I am such a last minute packer, it feels good knowing I have at least one thing out of the way. 

I haven’t mentioned my weight loss on the blog since the first week when I lost 4.5 lbs.  Well since then I have lost a total of 25lbs.  I still have some more weight to lose though so I hate buying clothes knowing I hope to get smaller, unfortunately I only have one bathing suit from a couple years ago that fits so I will have to go shopping for a few more tomorrow.  Yuck I hate bathing suit shopping!

I got a couple comments yesterday about my lack of snacking.  I have never been a snacker.  I will occasionally snack and I do post those snacks or at least write here that I did.  I do sometimes take bites of Andrew’s food and don’t take a picture of it or write about it on here but we’re talking about bites.  Before I started the blog my eating was all over the place, some days I would only eat dinner so I think my body is still getting used to the idea of eating 3 normal meals a day.  I think I’m getting enough calories without snacking during the day but I’m going to start doing some calorie counts and make sure I’m where I should be without them.


I hope you all have a great night but Andrew just got home and Monday and Tuesdays we don’t get to spend much time together so I’m going to go talk to him until bed time!  Have a fabulous night!

    I’m a huge fan of delicious simple spaghetti for dinner. Congrats on 25lbs! That’s roughly how much I lost last year and I know how hard it is. Good luck shopping!

    Congrats on the weight loss, that’s AWSOME! It’s totally ok to buy a few things now…you don’t want to walk around in clothes that are falling off! You’ll be amazed at how many more people will notice your loss when you have clothes that fit…at least that’s how it was for me.

    I have to go bathing suit shopping this weekend EWW haha.

    i have NEVER heard of stuffed bread before! did you make that yourself?

  • 17. thelongweigh  |  May 13, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Congratulations on the weight loss! That’s awesome! i know exactly how you feel not wanting to buy clothes yet! You should definitely buy yourself at least one outfit that fits right and you feel good in though! I will buy a lot of thigns at cheap stores like Ross or Target so that I am not too sad when they dont fit anymore!!

  • 18. CurlyTop  |  May 14, 2009 at 12:57 am
