Long Time eh?
Well the wayward one comes home eh? Yeah i haven't updated in a while especially after my .6 pound gain this week.
I ceased taking birth control. I started not taking it last week which made me feel guilty and i doubled up to make up for the pill i missed at like 2am. Wouldn't you know the next day while having class in the library at school I got sick to my stomach and threw up in the restroom after eating an apple and drinking a cup of tea (my effort at making myself feel better). Hopefully the scale will show something because of this. I ended up getting my period two weeks early because i stopped midcycle and so im not starting my new pills until next time.
Anyways....my birthday was this past weekend. Chad took me out to dinner and I tried the best i could to stay OP. I ended up getting pasta with an olive oil sauce with shrimp spinach and tomato with a salad on the side. Lucky for me I didn't finish it. I made myself not finish it, the last thing i wanted to do is gain this week. But chad ended up buying me a cake and I stupidly ate two pieces with two big helpings of full fat chocolate ice cream. Though I was smart and started counting strictly sunday.
What really excites me is that Chad bought me a rice/veggie steamer. I have been wanting one for the longest time and I cannot wait to start steaming all different kinds of veggies.
Here are some good finds......Sunday I ate a chicken teriaki sub at subway. it was so good and didnt even need sauce! woo! I also managed to get it without cheese and it was good! (major cheese fiend here).
Also, chad and i made the best stuffed peppers on friday night.
we made them with:
red peppers, ground turkey, rice (use brown!), chipotle peppers in adobo sauce,corn, egg, salsa and monteray jack cheese (i believe they make fat free)
but anyways we browned the turkey in a fry pan and mixed it with the rice, egg, chillies and some corn and stuff it all inside the pepper and bake for about 30-45 minutes. when time is up top with salsa and cheese and bake five more minutes. totally yummy!
