Perfectly Boring.

Perfect is Boring tank from OMB // hat is from Canton // Shorts Kenneth Cole from Marshalls

We had a very laid back weekend, I didn't have to fix my hair once #winning My Mom happened to have Friday night off {She's a captioner for television and works odd hours} so we all went out to dinner, Olive Garden.


I picked the tilapia and shrimp with broccoli, 12f/12c/52p awesome macros and tasted really good, OG is one of my top picks when we go out to eat, so many options that are not full of fat. One meal out can blow my daily fats, which is why I don't like to do it a lot.


I like to save my fats for 9pm summer fro-yo with the family, yes, that's Nutella on top. We don't always eat ice cream at night, but when we do we do it right.


Saturday I had to do a bunch of stuff for OMB in the morning, then Madison had her first game of summer indoor, she ran her little heart out and scored twice! I love nothing more than watching her play a game I love. Aiden enjoyed the plasic wall so he could be eye level with all the action!


We needed some items from the grocery store, so we decided to go to Whole Foods while we were close by, ugh. They are just so expensive, I can't, and then I realized after we got home that I bought chicken thighs and not breasts, 20 bucks worth. 


Madison lost 2 teeth, she's entering that super awkward phase with half baby teeth and half adult teeth that are too big for her mouth, but at least she keeps it symmetrical by losing on each side.


The Bald One has learned to feed himself, guess my job's over. That eyebrow of his just cracks me up!


Sunday I slept in until 7, it's also weigh in day and I broke into the 140's which is exciting, but the scale really doesn't do it for me much anymore. I want to see it in the mirror, I've been double killing my legs trying to see some progress, but sometimes I think it's harder for ME to see cause I'm looking everyday! 


My Select Protein (Snickerdoodle)came in and it's so delish, like maybe my favorite protein ever! I had breakfast with all the ponies who seem to permanently live on my kitchen table.


I promised Madison I would take her swimming, so I dedicated a few hours after breakfast to OMB, then we gathered up our friends and spent the afternoon by the pool. I have to put my phone away because I have a hard time not responding to emails or questions right then if I see it. We had a blast, the relaxation was much needed!


Oliver up after mowing for a quick dip and dinner, after we ate I snuck out and went home to meal prep a few things before they all got there.


I think eating a ton of carbs early in the day is beneficial to me, I lost weight for one and I also stay full so much longer. On the weekends I also have a super hard time getting in all my water, so I made sure I kept my bubba with me and drank up - maybe that helped too.

I"m gonna choke down that chicken thigh meat for lunch, hopefully it's better than I imagine.

  1. Congrats on the 140s! I agree with the comment we don't see it because we are always looking. I went swimming with friends this weekend and someone said they noticed a significant difference in my waist. I was pumped, what a compliment! (Even though I don't see it.) I love to eat carbs earlier in the day. I completely agree. It def is how my body works the best. Keep on killing it Meg!

  2. Freeze the thighs and use for soups in the fall maybe?

  3. Are they boneless skinless thighs? If so, I have the best recipe : http://www.oatmealwithafork.com/2012/09/14/3-ingredient-apple-juice-chicken/ So good you will want to lick your plate.

  4. Yep, I use the thighs in the crockpot prep, like a salsa chicken for shredded chicken for the week.
    I can't stand thighs, but Hubs prefers it. blech.

  5. Chicken thighs can be SOOO delicious - like better than breasts. Here's two pretty easy recipes I like: http://sodelushious.com/make/tuscan-grilled-brick-chicken/

  6. I know you have probably posted this somewhere before but I can't seem to find it. Do you use a pancake mix or have a recipe of your own?

  7. I hear ya on eating out and having the Fats be soooo high. I really struggle with that and if I have to, I prefer to eat lunch or breakfast out so I can adjust dinner accordingly. If I eat all day and have dinner out, sometimes I'm screwed!!! Your pancakes makes me so jealous. One of these days I'm either going to drive all the way to TX or buy the ingredients and make them myself!!! Swooooon! Keep Rockin' It!

  10. Love reading your blog and your weight loss success story. I HATE chix thighs.. My Whole Foods every Tuesday has the ground chuck and chix breast on sale for 2.99 a lb. That's the day I stock up. It's worth it though.

    1. I added more almond milk to the snickerdoodle concoction but I used the coconut flour base and not the pancake mix.
