Weekend Report #4

WAHOOOO!! I lost two pounds this week. Oh yeah. My one pound streak has been broken. Bring on the extra pound lost, baby! Oh yeah!! (I'm doing the cabbage patch and squealing -- just so you all know) So that makes it 58.3 pounds lost since the end of May. And I'm 7 lbs away from hitting my Christmas goal! Oh yeah! I think I'm going to make it -- lose 65 total pounds by Christmas.

I've been busy in the kitchen. I don't have any pictures but I will come Thanksgiving of all the stuff I've been baking and putting together.

I've made 4 mini loaves of marbled chocolate banana bread (which you've all seen), 4 mini loaves of regular banana bread, a pumpkin roll filled with marshmallow cheesecake frosting (picture a ginormous pumpkin ho ho filled with marshmallow cheesecake and you'll know what I'm talking about), gingerbread cookies, and I just got done throwing together a Spiced Eggnog (nonalcoholic, of course but that could easily be changed). I'm waiting for the eggnog to set up and get cold, but it tasted pretty amazing when I licked the saucepan I made it in. The best part is it's half the calories and fat of the store bough variety. I'm thinking it tastes better too.

I licked the bowl I made the marshmallow cheesecake frosting in last night as well as dipped an Oreo in it. So because of that, I jogged last night for 30 minutes to make up for the extra calories. Other than that little taste of heaven (I didn't even eat the whole cookie, 3ft came along and ganked half of it), I did pretty good food wise this weekend.

3 days til Thanksgiving. Next up on my baking list is Herb and Cheese Challah bread.

So excited for you!! You go with your weight lost self. :) And, major points for not bopping 3ft on the head after he ganked your Oreo. I'm not sure I have that kind of control...
