Spaghetti and meat sauce ( turkey) and Parmesan herb zucchini My strategy didn’t work. Lost the Workweek Hustle, but by a lot less than last week. Friday. Last day. Now a weekend to recover Know what I accomplished besides 2nd place? Giving myself plantar fasciitis all over again. Maybe it would have been worth it if I took 1st Place, or lost a couple of pounds.

My heart feels heavy and broken. Just 70 miles north of me, 17 families are living a new reality without their loved ones. And how do I tell my 13 year old that already has anxiety issues, “it’s ok.You’re safe at school?” Can’t do it. Have to go with the Trust-in-God route, which just didn’t work. Spending some time with her today. (3 comments) My day yesterday. Tried my best to not stop moving.

I have not won the Workweek Hustle so far this year. I’m very happy 😊 Food find of the day...great coupon at BJs. Six pre-portioned packs only cost me $3.59. Today, I woke up feeling like this...every part of my body just hurts. Back, knees, legs, ankles. But I walked 2 miles anyway. Not as fast as usual, but I did it. I got this today! Better than average week for me. Dinner...chicken kabob, asparagus, and half a baked potato. (1 comments) Baked buffalo chicken drumsticks (1 comments) Easter dinner a day early since I am working tomorrow...Happy Easter and Passover friends! (1 comments) Seed granola Plant-based meal #1.

Radishes dressed for the Roast..., Greek turkey burgers for dinner tonight...packed with spinach, red onion, and feta cheese Eat food that rots (eventually), cooked by a person (not a company) and nothing that has a commercial. Simple. Blueberry protein waffle topped with fruit. Not exactly diet food, but at least it was cooked by a person (me). Cornbread jalapeño waffle and pulled pork. Tomorrow I will have salad for dinner. Made these Fudge Babies from the Chocolate Covered Katie website. So amazing! Dates, nuts, cocoa powder, vanilla extract. They’re called Fudge Babies. I call them Amaze-balls! Told you tonight would be salad night, topped with a oven baked Panko breaded chicken thigh, yogurt dressing. Cracked me up! Happy Wednesday, Sparkers! Say whaaat? Found this at Aldi. Much healthier dessert option...good for fruit dipping (3 comments) Dinner tonight...fried rice with ham, stir fry with bok choy, snap peas, water chestnuts and chili paste. Skipped the rice. Added shrimp to my food that rots. LOL Nothing earth-shattering. A pork loin chop, broccoli, and mashed potatoes. Yes, potatoes. I’m Polish...mashed potatoes course thru my veins. LOL. 2 eggs, one white with green onions and feta. 8 shrimp. Going lower carb for a week to see if I can drop a pound. That would be nice. 1/2 cup pasta mixed with zucchini noodles, 1/2 a sausage, part skim ricotta 1/2 angel hair pasta, 1/2 zoodles. Only 1/2 a sausage, and 2 tbs. of part skim ricotta. (3 comments) 5 baked honey garlic chicken wings, and roasted cauliflower. I had shrimp and eggs for breakfast. 😉 Apparently, this is totally inappropriate and yet hilarious at 3 am when you can’t sleep. Come to Mamma...eggs and oven baked parmesan zucchini for breakfast today SparkPeople censored me. Again! This is funny. Whoever is watching the posts at 3 am needs to get a sense of humor. (5 comments) Out of eggs, so I had a sesame ginger salad with shrimp. Good choice! Also need to get to the store. Sliced London broil with onions and mashed cauliflower Someone on here made sweet potato nachos and my head nearly exploded.
