Finally Settled In

Yep, you read that right kids..  I moved to my parents' house on January 16th, and I'm finally settled in.   It took a while, but all in all everything is going well with that, and my personal life. 

My eating on the other hand...EEEKK!!  That my friends, is a goddamn TRAINWRECK!  But, I'm guessing that's to be expected, yes??   I'll tell you one thing though, I never realized how much blogging actually kept me accountable, so guess what...  you can expect to see a few blogs a week from me.  I need something to keep me accountable again.

My last post here I was around 231-229 lbs.  Ive managed to maintain that weight all this time, so I guess things could be worse.

I traveled to Cleveland Ohio on Thursday, and I tell you what, there was NO holding back when it came to food, or alcohol for that matter.  But, I'm somewhat happy to report that this morning, I was 229, even with the Chocolate Dipped Cone from Dairy Queen I had for dinner on my way home from the airport last night.

Also - back to Weigh in Wednesday's, so I'll expect you to tell me to remove my from my ass if I slip up.  Thanks!

With that being said.. let's talk soup.

As you all know, I LOVE soup.  I love making it even more than I love eating it. Okay, well maybe that's a lie, HA!!

Since I'm at my parents' house now, I don't make my own soups anymore.  Mostly because I don't have my own kitchen. It's already hectic enough when we have 3 separate meals cooking for dinner, and both my mom and I making our weekly lunches at the same time.

So, I started using these.

 You can find these soups everywhere.   I've found them at WalMart, and locally at both Schnuck's and Dierberg's.  They're $3 a bag, and they come in tons of varieties.   Most of them are around 90-100 calories per cup, and each bag is 8 cups.  I usually eat 2 cups at a time, so $3 for 4 days worth of lunches is a hell of  deal if you ask me.

The Chicken Enchilada was just alright, kinda bland actually, but the rest of them are very very good!   They also make a pretty good chili, but you'll have to add meat, or it's not quite as filling.  

On the stove now for lunches this week, but not pictured, is the creamy broccoli cheddar which is also, 90 calories per cup and VERY good.

Anyway, now that you know I'm alive and haven't gained ALL of my weight back, I look forward to blogging again, and hopefully you look forward to reading them again.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

As always, thanks for reading!
