Hot for Hunky Husbands Challenge-Weigh In #2

Howdy y'all.

I know Jordan and I are supposed to weigh in on Saturdays, but I will not have access to a computer tomorrow, so I thought I'd do a weigh in today instead.


We're doing the Look Hot for Our Hunky Husband's Challenge!!!
Look out now!

My first weigh in, last week, to kick off this little shin dig was: 152.2

My current weight is: 149.8

Total loss for the week is: 2.4 lbs


I want to thank clean/real eating, no booze, and getting my soon to be shrinking pooper outside and to the gym, to run/walk for this lovely accomplishment. I owe it all to you! *Bow*

I plan on doing a buttload of hiking and walking this weekend and am even going to hit up the gym again on Sun. So the numbers should keep going down, down, downtown!

On another note, I had a major melt down yesterday where I just felt like smooshed dog poo and was craving chocolate like a strung out hooker craves the crack pipe. It was not pretty.
I did not buy the Milky Way Of Death, or trudge down the V-Day candy aisle, or hang upside down with my mouth agape under the chocolate ice cream machine.

I took some amazing advice from my sista from anotha motha Angie and went to the nut aisle. You know I love me some nuts. That come off the tree, you dirty birds, not the other kind.

Anyway, I bought these per her suggestion:

And yes, I am making out with them because I now love them more than all the sprinkle covered cake donuts in the world. Don't hate.

Angie: There are no words to express my gratitude to you for enlightening me to this little gem packed away in the pretty green container. I will forever be in your dept.

Here's the nutrition, in case you were wanting it:
OK, not the best picture. Just google it.

Kinda high in cals and fat, but their nuts people. NUTS. Not M&Ms or Reece's Pieces. They are good for you.

Next on my list is to find these:

I think I just had a foodgasm.

OK, gotta go.

Peace out my homies!!

**UPDATE** Just found a recipe to make my own cocoa roasted almonds HERE. Looks easy and I am totally trying this on Sun. (Because y'all know that little container that I bought will NOT last the weekend.)


  1. Boy are we alike...I loves me some dark chocolate almonds and now I have a new quest...those chocolate mint ones...good grief, you're a bad influence on my checkbook!!!

  2. 2.4 lbs and under 150! You Rock! I just hope my trip to the gym last night helped enough. Can't wait to show off our hot bods at our V-Day dinner. We will have to take pics.

  3. I just recently found those myself, love them. I am going to have to font the mint ones!!!! There are also cinnamon roasted Emrald almonds that are equally amazing!

    Congrats on the loss of "lb's"!

  4. That is a great loss! I now MUST try those nuts. I love all nuts, even the tree kind :-)

  5. I HATE that nuts are so freaking expensive. Why is that? Only you could look stunning making out with nuts.

  6. YAY!! You are doing great! I love that you are doing so well with the clean eating. If I did that I would have to give up microwave popcorn, huh? :)

  7. Whomp whomp...great loss darlin'. I'm so proud of you!!

  8. Great job on your loss! Those almonds look amazing, now you have me craving them!

  9. Bahahahaha! Luhuvvvv the makeout pic with the nuts! I'm dying to try the mint chocolate ones!!! Fooducate gave them a "B" but like you said they're nuts....and we're human nuts, we gotta have some chocolate in our lives sometime!!!

  10. Congrats on the loss!! Out of curiosity, how tall are you?

    And i looooove those cocoa almonds. OhmyLord, heaven in a (plastic) can.

  11. I see those almonds and have always wondered if they taste like a bad swiss miss mix - apparently not! Going on my grocery list!

    And WOOT!! on the 2.4 lbs - way to go!

  12. I can't have those almonds in my house. I like them TOO much. No portion control. Okay, that's not true. I carefully measure out a portion. Eat it. But then I carefully measure out another portion:(

  13. Great job this week! Your hubby is definitely going to be droppin' those drawers when he sees how hot you look on V-day! :)


I love hearing from y'all, so leave a comment!
