WoW ~ Week 12

by | May 21, 2008 | WoW | 3 comments

I have actually been looking forward to today since Saturday!!! My new diet is amazing — other than the fact that it totally stinks to cut out sugar!

This week, I am down another 2.5 pounds, my energy is up (thank goodness ’cause I have a ton to do!), and the cold I caught from the kids didn’t turn into bronchitis for once! If I can keep this up, I could hit my goal in less than 2 months. However, I am not really sure how the next three weeks will go since I will be traveling. I have yet to figure out what I can order at any of the fast food places… I mean really, what can you get when chicken and lettuce are not an option? “UM… let’s see, I’d like a hamburger, minus the ketchup, mustard, onion, lettuce and bun. Thanks! Oh, and can you add a tomato to that?” 😉 I guess I better plan on bringing a cooler.

I have found a new treat though!!! On Monday, when I was in town, I went into the health food store to pick up some more dates… I had really been wanting something sweet. I nearly died when the girl inside the door was offering samples of ice cream! Noooooo!!! I love ICE CREAM!!! How was I going to turn it down? I said, “Oh, no thanks, I can’t have dairy….” She said, “It is dairy free! It is made with coconut milk!” REALLY!!! I then asked, “Does it have sugar in it?” (As I picked up the container to look at the ingredients!) Nope!!! NO SUGAR!!! It was sweetened with Agave Syrup, which I can have. The very last ingredient was vanilla, darn… Oh well! The two biggies were out of the way, I was going to try some! It was heavenly, and so deliciously creamy! It is, of course, high in fat and calories… But, supposedly coconut fat is a “good for you” fat, and at this point, I DON’T CARE, this stuff is good for my morale!!! I bought 3 pints — 2 of which are already gone… and I STILL LOST WEIGHT! I can do this!

This weeks summary:

  • Week twelve progress: -2.5 pound
  • Total lost in WoW: -8 pounds

Goals for this week:

  • Make a list of foods that will be easy to eat while traveling.
  • Find a way to make Coconut Bliss at home without the vanilla! (It only has like 5 ingredients, so it shouldn’t be too hard!)

To see everyone else’s results this week, head over to Regina’s!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
