For my third week I lost 2 lbs. I am happy with it considering the week I had. I was in a horrible car accident this past Friday and I amazingly stayed on plan except for not drinking enough water. Yippee! The person who ran into my car apparently claimed she blacked out and ran a red light and smashed right into my car at an intersection. There is no more car. It was completely totalled. Thankfully I have no broken bones just pain in my neck, knee, and tummy. Well, I shouldn't say JUST, it hurts, it hurts a lot, but it will take time for me to be back to how I was. It is unfortunate we have to pay for others mistakes. It isn't fair not one bit, but that is life. She should not have been driving but life happens and I have to move on but I need to vent. What really sucks about it is that my hubby is coming home next Friday from Afghan for his leave and now he is going to see me all bruised up and in pain. That is not how I wanted him to see me because I do not want him to worry about me but to focus on himself over in the sand box. We have a cruise planned, theme parks we wanted to go to and a lot of other things we wanted to do while he is on his leave for 2 weeks, but I guess I will have to see what the doctor says. I am still so happy that I get to see him soon! That is what keeps me going and I can't wait until we see each other again. Counting the days... 9 days!
This is the front of the car but a side view. Pretty much the front is gone.
As for the recipe I tried... I got it from Cody's Blog New Beautiful Me. She has a lot of creative meals that I can't wait to try. Go check out her blog if you are on the Medifast Program. This one happened to be the one that was on top of my list. I love love love grilled cheese but I am not really fond of tomato soup. It was good but not something I will have often. I think I will try a different creamy soup to change up the taste, maybe cream of broccoli? If you love tomato soup then you will love this. I actually have a hard time getting all my lean down in one sitting so mixing my lean with my meal makes it easier for me to get it all in. Great idea Cody!
