Menu- Week of August 1

Last week, we really enjoyed the new recipe we tried of the Chicken Chili. The original recipe called for turkey, but I just put it all in the crockpot with a package of frozen chicken and it was some kind of good.

Also, the homemade pizza rolls were good, but maybe a little too time consuming of cutting and prepping it all up for it to just taste like pizza. I’d rather have a frozen pizza. ha!

This week we are having:

Monday: some yummy chicken breasts wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese, peppers and mushrooms that I picked up ready to cook at Braum’s. I have never really shopped at Braums for food (but I LOVE their ice cream!) but they had a neat selection of things. We will have a side salad.

Tuesday: Healthy Spicy Honey-Glazed Chicken with green beans. New recipe for us.

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Lime Chicken Tacos

Thursday: Monterrey Spaghetti. New recipe for us. I am going to halve this recipe.

Friday: Korean BBQ Beef Lettuce Wraps. We like these alot.


Man oh Man!

Ya’ll this has to be the best Friday I’ve had in a long time!

Why you ask?

-I got to work at 8 and was in a quick meeting, then I got to go help deliver a car to a customer and that kept me away from my desk until almost 11! Yeah for fieldtrips! I went with Janet, who is the most delightfully sweet lady, who happens to be a salesperson here at the dealership. It was fun to talk to the customer (I hardly ever get to do that), and also fun to get away from my desk!

-A vendor called to tell me they were bringing me “something special” this afternoon. I love surprises (and gifts!)

-My mom and cousins will be back tonight (they went to Branson after our little visit Tuesday evening) and we are hitting up my favorite boutique after work (so mom can check it out!) and then we are going to CHUCK E CHEESE! Ah! The 5 year old inside me is screaming! I can’t wait to eat pizza and play ski-ball and hit the gopher into the hole (you know what game I’m talking about, right?) I might even just give good old Chuck a hug too!

Man oh man this is a great day! Hope you are having a fun Friday! 🙂

Enjoy your weekend!


Weight Loss Wednesday a Day Late

Well I really don’t need to be blogging this because I have no change to report this week.

I really can’t complain too much as I’ve been lackadaisical on my diet.

This past weekend we pigged out at Shorty Small’s, went wine tasting, and I had lots of tea (tea=caffeine which makes you retain water and not show weight loss).

So while I want to be mad that I haven’t lost, I can only be mad at myself for not being diligent in my food plan.

I also didn’t do the weight class on Tuesday at mom, Nancy and Caitlyn came to Zumba with me….so I am down a workout for the week.

Well, its ok, I suppose. Just gotta forget the excuse of “its summer! eat what you want!” and be a good little dieter. 🙂

Hoping for a good report next week!

Current status: 18 pounds to lose!


Weight Loss Wednesday…Coming Soon
