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...
One of the many (I was told I was not allowed to make anymore as of 9:00pm last night) resolutions I made for this new year is to (once again) count my weight watchers points AND track them...AND exercise.
I know you are all shocked, as not many people make resolutions to lose weight and eat healthier, but I'm ok being the only one.
So, I've decided to plan meals on Sundays...go to the store...and list them here for you to see.
AND...and with Weight Watchers points values!
I know, you're thinking it's your lucky day...well, it is.You are welcome.
I won't have things listed by days--just a few recipes that I'll be making during the week.
Without further adieu, here are the items I will be making this week.
