Your old page? Yeah, I noticed the privacy bar tree over hubby's face too, haha! I've showed his face on here before, so whatever, but it just worked out that way. I can barely recognize myself in the old picture, I guess I always looked thin in my head. :| 1962 days ago

You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a QUICK FIRE boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, havled horizontally and thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 large bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water
12 to 16 Boston lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)
1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a larch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat. Add half the chicken; cook, stirring constantly, until opaque throughout, 2-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.
2. Add the remaining tablespoon oil to the pan, along with the onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until the onion is tender and golden, about 4 minutes (reduce the heat if browning too quickly).
3. Reduce the heat to medium; add the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes to the pan; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.
4. Stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch mixture; remove from the heat. Add the chicken and any accumulated juices; toss to coat. Serve in lettuce cups.

Dude, I know exactly what you mean about being emotionally ready! I felt like I had enough to focus on with learning how to be a wife without worrying about spending time on exercise, and enough about learning how to cook a whole meal every night to worry about cooking a healthy one. Yah. And I know it may be different now with bebe on the way since losing weight is not really a good thing, but I've done all the steps and stages thus far and it really takes you through them slowly and thoroughly. It's really been exactly what I needed. You can start over at stage one and it sends you emails about what you're supposed to be focusing on. 2691 days ago
