It's Friday! The Sun is shining, I'm going to a HUGE book sale on my lunch (in search of weight loss motivational or fitness books) I always find those books so motivational to read. AND I'm going to Mexicali Rosa's for supper (my favorite Mexican restaurant) How better could my life be right now? Even though I'm only allowed to have chicken and vegetables at Mexicali's (and basically that's what I've been eating EVERYDAY for lunch AND supper) I'm pretty confident that it will taste 10 times better there! There are only 2 downfalls: ++

1. I can only order water. No Diet Coke, no Strawberry Daiquiri (they have the BEST in town), just water. But I should be ok with that. Its the next downfall that is the challenge.

2. At Mexi's as soon as you sit down, you are presented with a huge basket of fresh baked tortilla chips and the BEST homemade salsa anyone has ever tasted. This is the hard part. BUT I have decided to preplan. Even though I can't have the fresh tortilla chips, and I'll have to sit there and smile while everyone, including my hubby stuffs their face with the crunchy greasy goodness, I have come up with a plan. I'm going to ask for my own side of homemade salsa with my meal. That way I can still have a taste of it without going crazy. I'll just dip my veggies and/or chicken in it! It really is too good to pass up. Plus I am allowed to have unlimited salsa on my plan! So I really think I am setting myself up for success here!

On the upswing...I FEEL great today. I feel thin and hot and sexy and girly and confident and great! I know that my body is reacting well to this new meal plan. I can't just feel it, even when I am walking and I must say it feels WONDERFUL!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!


  1. OMG, OMG, OMG....I LOVE MEXICALI ROSA'S!!!! We don't have one where I live, but this summer, when I visit my sister in Ottawa, I will be visiting there. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their cheese enchiladas!!!! I must say - I truely admire you for even making a plan going to that restaurant - I would totally be taking a break from healthy eating!!! Good for you!!!

  2. Hi Carolyn! We don't have a Mexicali here in my city in western Canada, but it sure sounds good! I think you've got a great plan to have the salsa on the side with your meal, then you're not totally deprived. I also have been trying to comment for the last couple of days but for some reason can't get through on your blog (???) but I think you're a brave girl for trying out this 6 week food plan and it's just what you need to shake things up. Oh, and I TOTALLY understand the alluring factor that those damn Timbits have! ;)

    Take care and have a great weekend,

  3. Good for you for planning ahead. That is half the battle right there! I would ask for my own side and just eat it with a spoon while everyone else munches chips...but that's just me! LOL

    hoping to hear good things about your weigh in tomorrow. glad you are feeling skinny and hot and sexy and all that stuff, too.

    It makes it easier to stick to your resolve on those hard days when you are feeling good about yourself.

  4. Good for you for planning ahead...Mexican is always the toughest it seems like especially those chips..they are dangerous but I think with your attitude and planning ahead Im sure you did wonderful!
