Sorry for the absence...I've been busy at work, at cooking, and at working out.
Brent had to work this weekend--which I'm used to, but was still kind of a bummer. So, I went for a beach walk by myself.
As you can see, the beach was pretty deserted. Except for this guy...
He was the size of a basketball. Probably the largest jelly fish I've ever seen. And yes, I did poke him with a stick (naturally).
Soon after I discovered the largest jellyfish ever, the fog began rolling in. This is a really weird phenomenon at any time of day, but especially at 2:00 in the afternoon on the beach. I couldn't see more than 20 feet ahead or behind me, so I called it a day.
I'm sure you would like some recipes. Well, I have one to give you. It's quiche. And it's delicious.
To lighten the recipe, I used 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, instead of 4 eggs. I also used reduced fat cheese. And, I cheated and used already cooked bacon. I sauteed my onion in 1 tsp olive oil instead of bacon grease.
Servings: 8; 7 points/serving
I also burned/dried out made BBQ in the crock pot this week. It wasn't so good...
I am about to go run "Week 5 Day 3" of C25K...wish me luck.
The last few times I have gone down to run there has been a 10-ish yro girl in there with her mom. She likes to get on the treadmill next to me and attempt to race me/run with me. It's pretty obnoxious.
And we're also usually watching Phineas and Ferb or Hannah Montana at the time.
I didn't make any of the recipes I posted last week.
Brent worked two nights...the other nights we ate "cheap" meals out.
I weighed last Monday and the scale was up 6 (SIX!!!!) pounds...I know it's water (or most of it), but it was still pretty discouraging.
SO. This week's dinners are going to be a bit of a "weightloss bootcamp". Meaning I'm not going to be "cooking" anything worthy of blogging about (aka english muffin pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and lean cuisines).
My apologies for no recipes--skim back through the last three weeks or peruse Pinterest for some ideas.
I switched from the running plan I was following to the Couch25K app--which I've had forever, but never completed.
That way I don't have to keep up in my brain (that is just-trying-to-keep-my-lungs-going-so-I-don't-pass-out) how many running intervals I have done. It counts for you and *dings* when it's time to run or walk.
Brent and I have been looking at houses/lots, trying to figure out what we can afford (and can't) and how much more $$$ we need to save for a down payment. We would really like to build, as I am REALLY picky about home interiors--shocking, right?
We would also like to be on some form of water--bay, canal, inlet, estuary....
Here are a few plans we like....think tin roofs, water views, and scrubby Florida oaks and wild magnolias...
