Woo Hoo Wednesday!!

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I am feeling sooooo much better emoticon. Wasn't going to do my weigh in and measurements since still TOM but I couldn't stand it, just had too!!!

I REACHED A GOAL!!! I am finally in the 140's!!!! I lost 2.6lbs (would have been just .6 had I not gained those evil lbs back) but I am in the 140's for the first time in 4 yrs (since I was near the end of my pregnancy with Bubbie.

I took my monthly measurements today to! Those were great!

Waist shrunk 0.5 in
Hips shrunk 1.0 in
Thighs shrunk 0.5 in
Calfs shrunk 0.5 in

No change in my upper arm again so need to work a little more on that "wiggly" wave!!! lol

Today its going to be a beautiful partly sunny day in the mid 60's (with some wind, but I'll take it!) I finished that ACC project last night (she had to extend it since her instructions weren't clear and she would respond to the class over last week). Today is going to be a great day!

Woke up at 5am doubled over with stomach pains. Trying to feel better but don't think I will make my classes today. Poor Evie for feeling this way Saturday! emoticon

    You are having a rough time. Thankfully we have not been sick at all - it is just flu rather than gastric. Laura is so very stuffed up, hot one minute freezing next, aching, headache, very bad cough. I just have sore throat again. Hoping it won't get worse. I need to teach!!
Do hope you are all better soon. Thanks for looking in on my feed. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good Morning!

Sunday, March 04, 2012

Evie is feeling so much better. She started feeling better early yesterday afternoon. Last night she lost another tooth. This is her 6th tooth lost! Bubbie had a good time at sports class. They just played Tball. Which he is really good at for 3! He caught a ball. He will only throw overhand (which he has a great arm and not just saying that because I am Mom either!!!) He is going to be my pro pitcher or quarterback someday!!

Evie is going to make it to her bowling party today. FUN FUN FUN

Well have a great day Friends! emoticon

Warm and Spicy Banana Waffles/Evie Sick again

Saturday, March 03, 2012

These were great! Me and Evie both love them. Waiting on Bubbie to get home to try them. The only problem is the waffle iron. I bought a cheaper one and it stinks. Gonna try and make them on my griddle next time. They kept sticking even with canola oil.

The last 2 days I have cut myself with my new knives 3 times and today cut tip of my finger cleaning the blade of food processor. Who knew cooking such healthy foods from scratch could be so painful!!! emoticon

Didn't get to Zumba today since Evie has another stomach bug. I can't beleive this, she has never been sick so many times! But she is eating right now and says its helping. Maybe she will be able to make her friends bday party at the bowling alley tomorrow. Bubbie got to go to his sport class with Grandma. He is learning floor hockey and tball today. Its so cute! He loves it!! They did basketball and kickball last week.

Have a great Saturday!

    They sound delish! But, be careful with the cutlery (though, been there, done that)!

3 more SP cookbook recipes made tonight

Friday, March 02, 2012

1. Baked Chicken tenders: these were ok. I didn't care too much for the panko. My son loved it my daughter didn't like the panko either so she brushed off as much as she could and ate that.

2. Roasted Red Potatoes with Garlic Herb Oil: these were good, next time will use more garlic. Only used 1 clove thinking it maybe too garlicky. Will use 3 next time!

3. Spicy yogurt sauce: This was really good. Left the seeds in the chipolte peppers to make it spicy. The spicier the better!

I will be making the warm and spicy banana waffles in the morning before Zumba!

Think I may skip my cardio workout today. A little tired and still have to do some homework. I will make up for it on my normal day off-Sunday!

Good night all! emoticon
