I again this week gained a pound. So 192.
I am pretty sure it was due to yesterday (Saturday).
Yesterday was one of those days where I never left the house…or my sweat pants. It was too easy to say “yes” when Cort suggested McDonald’s for lunch and then Taco Bell for dinner.
I should be glad that only added one pound, yes? So today? I am munching a salad while I type this.
Side note: The Halloween candy is gone. No more temptations there.
Also, for anyone keeping track, I only have to teach 10 more night classes before I get my evenings back…and hopefully my booty gets on the treadmill and/or to the gym. I am WAY looking forward to this!
I really, REALLY love teaching at the community college (actually wish that could be my “real” job), but it’s just taking too much time away from my family and my health. So I am taking next semester off.
This week will be interesting for McFatty. I teach two night this week and I have Parent/Teacher Conferences the other two nights. I will either lose massive amounts of weight or gain it. It is also my “lady week”. So we would be looking at a trainwreck of a post next week.
Because my week is going to be so crazy, we won’t get any nights to sit down as a family for any meals. However, I still planned a meal that we can all eat all week long that is healthier, say, than this:
Tonight I will be making my mom’s BBQ recipe so that we can have that on buns all week for lunches and dinner.
My mom’s BBQ:
In a big electric frying pan:
I use two pounds of burger, browned with salt, pepper, and a bit of chopped yellow onion.
Then add 2 cans of chicken gumbo soup and two cans of tomato soup
Add about a cup of ketchup and a couple teaspoons of mustard
Simmer for a few minutes.
I serve on wheat buns.
We also stocked the fridge with fresh fruit and the pantry with canned veggies that we rinse and serve to Eddie. Cortney bought the monster can of yams because that is the only veggie we know Eddie will eat every time it’s served to him. Weird? Probably.
Anyway, we will see how this week goes.
