Hello Everyone!  I think it must be the busy time of the year for everyone, I know it has been for me.  I am keeping up with the blogs but find it hard to post.  This is partly because I haven't been working on the BFC that hard lately.  By this I mean I stick to the plan but haven't done anything new or innovative with it.  No new recipes or tips I'm afraid.  My days have been pretty much like this:

Breakfast:  Minute muffin made with maple flavoring, few walnuts & cocoa nibs with a little cream cheese on top. Two cups of regular coffee with stevia & cream.  Sometimes I make an omelet instead of the muffin and sometimes I add link sausage as a side to the omelet.

Lunch:  Usually a salad with leftover chicken or roast beef lunch meat & cheese on top with my homemade garlic/Parmesan dressing.  If I don't make a salad then I eat the seed crackers with fresh mozzarella.

Afternoon snack:  A cup of decaff coffee with cream & stevia 

Dinner:  What ever protein I'm cooking and then two side veggies.  Last night I made chicken with a homemade Marsala sauce, broccoli and cauliflower with garlic puree.

After dinner:  One cup of decaff coffee with stevia & cream

That's really it.  I tend to do the same thing everyday and just really dinner is my main variety.  I've basically cut out snacks and if I get hungry I use the decaff coffee to get me through.   Looking over this I realize I probably drink too much coffee, but only two cups are regular and the rest are decaff.  The cream might add too many calories, but I feel it is better than extra snacks.

Other than that I haven't had much time to incorporate exercise into my plan yet.  This new puppy is keeping me WAY too busy.  Maybe I can count running her up and down our backyard to wear her out as exercise, lol!   I forgot how much time a puppy takes.  Our last dog, Marley, was already four months old when we got him and for some reason, just those four months, made things much easier.   Mabel is starting to settle into some routines now and most nights even sleeps through the night in her crate - thank goodness.   Marley and Mabel are starting to become good friends although Marley has to be pretty patient and put up with a lot of puppy playfulness!

My oldest son, the one that just got the job, is counting down the days until he moves out with his friend into their own apartment.  He wants to move out by the end of June.  I wish he would wait until the end of summer so that he would have more money saved, and more job security and all that jazz.  But...,his friend has been working longer and is ready to move out and is really pushing my son to go.   All I can do is cross my fingers and hope it works out for him and let him find his own way.

That's it for this time.  My weight has maintained at 163lbs and I hope I can start concentrating on weight loss again because I would really like to lose another 10lbs  before our vacation at the end of July.  Doesn't seem like much, but at this stage of the game losing 10lbs is hard!  Hope everyone else is doing well as we move closer to summer!
