My Ring Fits

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

So, today, I tried on my ring today that my Grandma Snoots gave me for my 16th birthday and it fit!

I haven't been able to wear this ring for 10 years or more.

It looks so pretty on my finger

Progress

Monday, July 23, 2012

I weighed in today at 198.6. I couldn't be more happy! I only have 60 pounds more to go! I know it sounds like a lot, but I already have 60 behind me, and I know with hard work and dedication, I will be able to reach that goal!

Caffeine!!

Friday, July 20, 2012

So... I am not *supposed* to have caffeine. I had a relapse. I had some caffeine. First last Monday at Bingo, then last night, and then again tonight. Keep in mind, I didn't have all that much. Let me tell you... holy crap! I imagine that is what snorting a line of coke would be like. I don't know if not having had any since the night before my surgery or the fact that my body absorbs things differently now has anything to do with it, but it felt like I was riding the white pony if you know what I mean! The good news is, I didn't fall asleep at my desk!

In other news, my boyfriend and I went out to lunch today. We went to Chipotle. That place is like heaven to me. I am so in love with their mild salsa. I could just eat a bowl of that. I got the burrito bowl again. I tell them light on the rice, steak, a double scoop of salsa and some cheese. I divide it into four portions.

Tomorrow night, my boyfriend and I are going to go to the Altoona Curve game. He wants to eat at the game, but I think I am just going to eat at home, then sneak a healthy snack in my purse into the game. I may just get a water.

I think that is all

    Wow, I'm glad you shared this. I really miss my coffee. I used to polish off a lot of it, since I gave it up while under the influence of anesthesia and pain meds, I decided that I should take advantage of my Non-caffeinated state and not start the habit back up. you've given me a good visual of another reason to not take in caffeine. I get hyper enough in my natural state.

Awesome Dinner and Random Thoughts (Photo & Recipe included)

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

I spent the majority of my day at the library volunteering. It was really nice. I really feel like I am doing something positive there.

I made an awesome dinner.
Italian chicken
Chef Meg's Zucchini Ribbons with Lemony Bread Crumbs
Watermelon


I used thin boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned with Good Season's Italian Dressing mix

ors.html


I used it like a rub and seasoned both sides of the chicken and baked for appx 35 mins at 375.

It was FANTASTIC!

It was also pretty decent, but a little bland. I think next time I am going to add some more seasoning.

For desert, I had fresh cut watermelon.

I know from the pic above, the serving looks huge, but it really wasn't. There was 2 oz of chicken, 1/2 cup each of the watermelon and the zucchini stuff.

I went out to take the outgoing mail to the box and water my plants around 10 this morning. Oh my WOW is it hot out there. I hate this kind of weather. I did get my first cherry tomato from my plant. It was pretty awesome. My herbs seem to be doing ok, except my chives. I don't think they like the heat all that well.

I think that is all for now
