To make matters worse, my husband and I now have a game. He hides the popcorn I find the popcorn. He thinks it's hysterical! HYSTERICAL! It is pretty funny, I mean who phenes for popcorn? So far I've only gone Monday without eating popcorn, it's pretty pathetic, but whatever. It's my vice. It is what it is
Work Out Summary-
Wednesday Night- 45 minutes HIIT Class
Thursday Morning- 30 minutes on the elliptical, hour long Body Sculpt aka weight lifting.
I did NOT want to get up this morning. Thankfully, I live a hot minute from the gym, aka my home away from home.
This week, I've made an effort to prepare meals from what I already had on hand in the
This time I used chopped mushrooms and an onion/ green pepper medley sauteed in two tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Margarine-
Next I added chopped boneless skinless chicken breast (three), frozen broccoli florets, and frozen peas
I had an animal of a spaghetti squash to bake. It was the biggest one I'd ever purchased, we'll be able to eat off of it for days. I was forced into purchasing the beast as it was the last one left.
I'm getting lots of questions about spaghetti squash. I purchase mine at a specialty grocery store- these are not available down at the Walmarts. Sowwys.
First slice it in half and scoop out the seeds. These bad boys are not easy to slice in half. You'll have to put your back into it, or you can do what I do and say, "Heeyyyy Honey Buns? Can I borrow some of your man strength for a few lil minutes?" He loves it when I talk to him like that. (ha!)
Preheat the oven to 350. Place the two halves down to bake for about 40 minutes. I find any longer than 40 minutes and the squash is more spaghetti squishy mush than hmmm this could pass for real spaghetti!
Remove from the oven and flip the two halves over. I wait about five to ten minutes before forking out the squash
I served the squash on the side since I knew I'd have so much left over. Maybe I'll get crazy and make spaghetti tonight, or a "skinny" Alfredo. This girl LOVES a white sauce aka the most fattening of all.
I added about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to the stir fry mixture I had going on. I estimated this to be about 300 calories give or take a few.
I'm not looking forward to my weekly weigh in tomorrow. I'm prepared not to lose, since I had so much fun, yet again, last weekend. Hopefully, this weekend will be quieter.
I've got to get serious if I'm going to reach goal by November 1. You can not out exercise/diet a bad weekend. You just can't, believe me. I've tried. It ain't working.

Have you found me on Instagram yet? @ellenoel fitness
I really love Instagram! Thank you to Kassie at Southern Girl Gets Fit, for introducing me to my new favorite time waster!
This is one of my favorite outfits this week.
I bought that skirt in 2007, this is third time I've ever worn it, since I started showing Cheetos's a ton of love around that time.
Getting your big butt into old "I seriously can't believe this fits again" cloths = "not for sale" natural high.
Wishing each and everyone of you a super productive and happy Thursday!
