Oy as a testament to me being down 14 lbs my pants almost fell off when I was walking dogs at work. I'm out of holes on my belt so I need to punch more holes and I really need to shop for new pants. Think I'm going to check out salvation army or get some cheap at Walmart for now since I'm hoping not to have to wear them for long.

Fran, have you tried spaghetti squash as a substitute for pasta? So yummy when it's made right.

Congrats! If you're going to have your pants fall off randomly, at least losing 14 lbs is a good reason for it!

Pants falling off is simultaneously the best/worst LOL.


I went straight to the gym from work today - had to get gas in my car and go to the chiropractor and the gym is less than a mile from the chiro, so it made no sense to drive all the way home and then go back. As a result I actually used the gym locker room for something besides going pee. I saw myself in my workout clothes in a mirror BESIDES the mirror at home.
I was actually feeling really good until I was doing bicep curls and looked at myself in the mirror from the SIDE to check my form, saw my butt, and was like "Oh. $*(@. That's right." hahahaha.


Anyway, lifted heavy today. Also did some crazy core work including a hanging crunch. I didn't even think I could do that. I mean really, I was side-eying my trainer when he was setting it up, like HA that's what you think.
Feel like a badass.
Going to be crazy sore tomorrow.

What about quinoa pasta? I saw it at Wegmans the other day. Same fun pasta shapes, except made from quinoa, lol. I didn't end up buying any because all of the ones I looked at also contained corn, but it might be something to look into.

Quinoa pasta is delicious. It is the only pasta we allow in the house. Lol

Last week was a bit rough. Getting to be "that time" so no news on the weightloss front and it made me tired and lazy so other than my arse busting fit club class I did NOTHING and I was a bad girl on the weekend and had Chick Fil A complete with waffle fries AND went to a birthday party and had cake lol.

Tonight is fit club again so I need to really work it and get back on track.

Second the recommendation for spaghetti squash, although they seem to be out of season right now

I use a julienne slicer to slice up squash and zucchini for now.

I haven't touched any kinds of grains so far, and don't plan to in the near future, but I might seriously give that quinoa pasta a try at some point down the road. Thanks for posting that!!!

Does the squash and zucchini taste the same as the spaghetti squash? I really like the way it tastes!
