Sometimes we forget.......
How really GOOD cooking healthy can taste! YUM!
I marinated chicken breasts in Wishbone's Bountiful dressing (Tuscan Romano Basil) overnight and grilled them on my George Foreman grill. Then I diced up zucchini, summer squash and cherry tomatoes and sauteed them with olive oil spray and added fresh basil towards the end. It was VERY delicious! :) This huge and filling meal was around 300 calories! Yippeee!
I've been a bad girl lately, eating anything and everything my fat little heart desires and it's time to shape up. Mentally and physically. I lost weight last year and felt so good about myself. (I followed the Weight Watchers Core plan)
When I gain weight, I'm crabby (because nothing fits and I'm embarrassed to go anywhere) and I just don't feel well physically either. I'm going to mow my lawn tonight which is a great work out! It takes me over an hour and according to my heart rate monitor that I faithfully used last year, it burns about 400 calories. No more sitting around doing nothing and wishing for a miracle.
"If it is to be it is up to me!"
20 lbs....that's it. I can do this!
Ok, I've been sketching with one of my gel pens lately and it's kind of fun to see how messy it can get. They're very wet so they smudge! The first time it smudged, I said 'ohhhhhhhh crap' and then I played with it and now I love it! ha It's fun to see just how funky a sketch can become!
Here are just a couple.
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, here are some fun summer photos of my grandchildren that I snagged from their Mommy's facebook :)
This is Nora on what must have been an exhausting car trip! Or should I say 'Snora'? hehe
This is what Nora does when the game gets a little slow for the kids in the outfield! One must keep themself occupied, right?
This is Cutler going down the water slide. Click on this to enlarge and see the priceless expression when his little bum hits that cold water! ha
My oldest granddaughter, Cailee, playing softball.
And here she is again, having a little fun in the water herself!
Wishing you all a great week!
