What I ate Wednesday

It's time for what I ate Wednesday! As I explained a couple posts back, I've lost quite a bit of weight since have my second son and I've just decided to document and talk about it. So the last time I made an entry was before christmas and before my family went on a vacation, a cruise, and a weekend trip to miami. Let me tell you something about key west....key west cupcakes and mattheessens are the delicious but so bad for you lol...anyways I gave in big time to those two treats and went out and drank with friends that had a mini vacation there with us...alcohol is terrible for ya but sometimes it's a hard thing to stay away from lol. Let me also tell you something about cruises....there is food available 24/7 and 85% of it is too amazing to stay away from! I did use the beautiful gym on board 3 out of the 7 days we were on the ship and I ran 3.1 miles everyone of those days I went in addition I also swam and did loads of activities everyday. Even still, I managed to gain 6 pounds! My husband ate more than I did and never exercised and lost a pound! Miami was full of good food too! UGH! So now it is Jan 23....3 weeks later and I am back to 141 lbs...womp womp...I believe I was at 137 the last time I wrote, but anyways not too too bad. I have been exercising a bit and I have been trying to stay under my calorie intake for the day. Last week was bad...I exercised everyday but also went over my calories everyday and this week I have stayed under but havent exercised least not enough to even bother entering it into myfitnesspal (my username is meighantosten btw!) My husband is on night duty this week and it has thrown my schedule out of wack...Im also insanely busy with miscellaneous errands and appointments all week so it's been a bad workout week for me.'s what I ate today!

Okay ya'll, I know it has been way too long! I am sorry for the hiatus! As some of you know that subscribe to my youtube channel ( or follow my twitter (@meighantosten), my husband came home from a 6 month deployment in december! 2 weeks after he came home we headed down to key west and had some fun with friends and family. After Key West we went on a 7 day cruise that was amazing!! Much needed vacation with all of my close immediate family. =] We spent new years in Miami, and are just now slowing down. So as you can see, The Tosten Family was busy!

We are now adjusting to life with my husband home and trying to get back on a normal schedule all while attempting to stick to our resolutions! Which, by the way, involve saving money. I never realized how hard it would be to save money when you love having friends around and staying busy! We are surrounded by bad influences and we absolutely love to have people over, and we spend a lot of money doing those things. We have decided that we'd like to go on another cruise, make a trip to Pennsylvania, go to disney again this year, and stay at the wilderness lodge for a few days before my husband deploys again. All of those things are quite pricey so the savings begins now if we are going to get to do any of those things!

What were some of your resolutions? Have you stuck to them? What are some things that make sticking to them challenging?

Over the next month I am going to put the time and effort into my youtube and blog. I will be doing a video on my eating habits and workout habits, a monthly favorites video at the end of this month, and my husband and I will be getting back into our fam vlogs and cooking vids!

Thanks for sticking around while I was MIA! See you/talk to you soon!

Meighan ^_^
