Getting back in control...again

Control over your eating is great! What a feeling to see food and not feel the need to have to have some of it. And then to have to try ALL of it. My monthly visitor safely behind me, all those weird, uncontrollable cravings go with it. yay!

However, the countdowns continue:
#1. Countdown to Vegas baby, woo! I leave this Thursday and plan to never come back least until Sunday when I return.
#2. Weigh-in for the $900 prize. Momma needs a new set of everything and my clothing are only getting looser by the day.  Still on that plateau and staying around the 183/184 range and I need to get down to 179 by Dec 13th (almost 2 weeks). The heat is on and I have to get thru Vegas to get to the other side - yikes!

Mostly clean eating for the next few weeks. Mostly. Tomorrow I'm going to a burger joint for dinner with a friend and plan to have the burger with the deep fried onions inside plus bottomless fries on the side. mmmmm I'll probably only be able to eat half of it but it will definitely be the DELICIOUS half. 
So of course breakfast and lunch will be VERY clean to compensate for the very messy, heavy and calorie laden dinner that I plan to consume. mmmmmm. stay tuned.

Breakfast (930am)

1/2 cup of oatmeal
1 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of vanilla
1 tsp of stevia natural sweetener

1 large boiled egg
Lunch (130pm)

Wanted something hot and delicious so I went with rare beef pho noodle soup and added tons of broccoli and chopped bok choy
Dinner (745pm) 
Craving a shrimp Caesar salad so I made one.
3 oz shrimp meat 
1 tbsp chopped garlic

1/4 cup sliced avocado
Chopped celery for the crunch
3 cups+ Romaine and mixed green lettuce

Kinda homemade dressing:
1 tbsp lite Caesar dressing
1/2 tbsp Italian dressing
1/2 lemon 
Dash of Worcestershire sauce, wasabi paste, and anchovy paste

TV Snack (8pm):
Handful of baked kettle chips
1 tbsp spinach chipotle dip

None today but I'm going to work out hard in the morning-630am I hear you calling me. Today is my rest day and although I hate rest days, tomorrow at the gym I'll be able to work out for longer and with more weights and go farther so I KNOW that resting is good for you even though it's sooo difficult sometimes to sit on your ass when you could be out at the gym!
7 glasses of water (yikes! I need to almost double this amount tomorrow)
2 cups of green tea (1 tea bag)

Happy Eating!

lol! Thanks Missy, I really enjoy making them which is great since I have to eat a lot of them. I should really start an online salad cookbook. People don't eat enough truly healthy salads out there. :)
