'scuse me, I forgot (chicken & dentist)

Monday, October 08, 2012

Success Journal
1. Didn't eat the apple pie in the lunch room
2. ate 24 almonds instead
3. seeing the dentist today

I left the tandoori chicken at the dog park yesterday after the potluck. I asked DS13 to bring it, but I guess he didn't hear me. So someone else picked it up and told me on facebook.

Tandoori Chicken

I do a easier version of this, mixing dry tandoori spice with 0% Greek yogurt, until it's a nice pink, then putting bite size pieces of chicken breast in to marinade overnight. Skewer the chicken and grill until done. The marinade makes it very tender.

Yes, I know it's not officially kosher, but I've done extensive research and found that chickens don't give milk, so I feel quite alright with eating them together.


I was planning on getting my 60 min cardio with Turbokick at 4, but then remembered my dental apt at 4:30, so I'll be flexible & go to Zumba at 6 instead.


A friend at work asked me to go to a beer tasting with her. And although I would like to do more socializing, I really don't like beer much and besides, I'm avoiding alcohol because it interferes with my weight loss. I know that other people may be able to have alcohol & still lose weight, but I can't. So, like she's telling me that if I want friends, I have to meet people halfway. But, I don't want to compromise on this. sorry.

    That chicken sounds delicious!!

I would not want to go beer tasting either. Maybe you could come up with something you would both enjoy.

    Compromise doesn't mean succumbing to one of your triggers. Suggest coffee.

    Great job on resisting the apple pie!

I agree, what kind of friend says that stuff? I think she just really wants someone to go with her.

    Hee hee..."extensive research." Thanks for the giggle.
The chicken looks delic!
I agree with ADARKARA...find a new (read: real) friend. There's lotsa great people out there and some (*gasp*) don't like beer either. I wouldn't sweat it...and good for you for sticking to your guns!

    So she essentially said "you must drink this stuff you don't even like or I won't be your friend".

Ridiculous, find a new friend. Real friends don't force you to do things you don't like to do.

Chicken looks delicious!
