It's a snowy afternoon here in Chicago so I got to go home early. I am sitting here watching one of my favorite feel good movies "Fried Green Tomatoes," it always take me back to some of my hot summers in Alabama. It sure would be okay to have some of the warmth here now to melt some of the snow.....UGH!
Driving home wasn't bad but I don't want to think about tomorrow commute......I pray you all have a wonderful Tuesday & get some fitness in.. Hubs shoveled & snow blew snow so I am going to take a nap right now.
I know the title maybe a little exaggerated but what I meant was that I didn't cook dinner today. I know I misled you a little bit but I made this chicken piccata from the frozen section from Walmart. I also made rice to go along with. Hubs & my son both asked for seconds. It was only a little over $6 but I think it was great because they had extras.
So I guess tomorrow I will be making baking or frying something. The reason for the frozen meal was that I had to got home late from church & then made a BIG breakfast for hubs, son, daughter & grandson. I made pancakes, grits, bacon, sausage pork & turkey, potatoes & scrambled eggs. After cooking all that I need a rest. I am so sleepy right now & I think I need to got o bed right now!
I mean I have to admit I love sparkpoints and today I hit it BIG! I got 25points on the wheel & then I got 25 for being on the site for the past 25days! My total points for today is 204points! Come on do the happy dance with me...
Today, I walked but I need to hit the weights. They are good for my heart & yours too. So make sure you don't bypass weight training...
Good Day Sparkfam! It has been a wonderful Sunday here in Chicago. The weather was beautiful, made it to my Thirst Quenchers Class at church but there were a few detours but made it nonetheless. Church was off the hook but I am still feeling the fire burn. I pray you all are enjoying your weekend but it has to come to an end.....but guess what? Stay tuned cause there will be another coming up oh in about 5 days....lol
We are on our way out to dinner to the www.wildfire.com which is in Oak Brook. I already baked chicken & made baked macaroni & cheese with bacon. That will be our back up with some baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon & butter. YUMMY! I am holding out for a dinner prepared by someone else....
So what are you guys doing or did exciting over the weekend?
It's been a minute but I do want you guys to know all is well with me. I have been logging but I can't seem to blog if I use the privacy feature that I have on google. Anywho, I pray all is well with you guys & I am just enjoying the calm yesterday the winds whipped at high speed. Had my hair whipped all around my face & you know I don't wear hats unless its in the low 20s or teens but I should've had one on yesterday. Paper is everywhere, I had a ladies meeting for the Jewels in His Crown group at our church's corporate office. I really enjoy myself & the theme of course was sweets. I bought, Kimberley's triple chocolate & red velvet cupcakes. The pic is shown below. Let me tell you I didn't taste them last night but today is my good friend & co-workers b'day so I bought them again. I tried & it was dreamy, do I want another one? NO! Not at 370 calories & 180calories from fat. HELLO!! UGH!! See my title. lol
So tonight will be 20mins of step aerobics, 30mins of weights & maybe if I am good then I can have 30mins on the dreadmill.....UGH! HELP!
I am so enjoy February & the fast for 21days for spiritual reasons really taught me how to really put foods into their place. You eat to live not the live to eat. Yes we can have indulgences but also have to be mindful of how much & when we do indulge.
