Nothing Could Have Tasted Better

Last night my mother and father-in-law stopped by!

They came just in time for dessert and brought with them two ice cold coffee's from McDonalds. I don't know if they know it, but the best in-law award goes to them! Nothing could have tasted better at that very moment. It was warm last night (85 degrees) and those iced coffee's really hit the spot!

On Sunday, I made some mini-goals for the week. It's now Tuesday and I'm happy to say, so far, so good!

~ Mini-Goals: May 20th - May 24th ~

1. Drink 8 cups of water a day (2/5 days done!)
2. Get 7-8 hours of sleep each day (2/5 day done!)
3. Eat within my nutritional ranges as provided by Sparkpeople.com (2/5 days done!)
4. Exercise at least three times this week (1/3 days done!)


I'm proud for staying within my nutritional ranges today. It was definitely a challenge! I worked over today at work and didn't get home until 7:30 p.m. I was starving by that time and wanted to eat everything in sight. I refrained, however, and made myself a couple BLT's for dinner.

I must have been hungry, or maybe I was tired; I bet it was a little of both because I forgot to add the lettuce to my "BLT" before taking this picture and before eating both sandwiches in a matter of two minutes. Since I choose to eat two sandwiches, dinner ended up being about 540 calories. Considering I was too busy at work today to even think about food, that was a good amount of calories to compensate for the date. Let me rephrase that... I had less time to think about food at work; of course I still thought about it!

What did you have for dinner, tonight?

Are you a fan of BLT's? (I love them, even more so when I remember the lettuce!)


  1. I love BLT's! Glad you had a good day. Sounds like you have some awesome in-laws.

  2. Just came across your blog and have been looking over your page, great job so far :)! I will be looking on here every day now, you are an inspiration!

    I have recently gained some weight and am trying to get back on track with healthy eating and exercise and I find that reading your blog helps me!

    Thank you and keep up the good work!
