WOW- gals! Good things humming along here.
Lori- I am SO proud of you! I know you have to be feeling so darn great. You are doing it so good. I agree with BLUE- Chico has some really nice things that LAST. Girl- GET SOME CLOTHES!!
Blue- I am so excited for you! When I came across that riced Cali it so worked for me. I have tried making it several ways- but the best is just put it in the microwave and add it at the last minute.
Your dinner sounded wonderful. I have tried the plain/ and the one with peas and carrots. The difference is 1-2 carbs. Also - I prefer this brand to even TJ, Kroger, no comparison.
As far as - guess whats bad/good for you know. I hold none of that with a grain of salt. These are the same entities that brainwashed the public to believe that low fat was the way to go.
I have ordered the book - for 3 bucks off amazon. Got a couple more coming! THANKS! Keep ya posted.
Leeann- and HERE IT COMES- wedding plans! I was just waiting! Yea!!!!!!!! So excited for you and your family. I know this is premature....... but then comes the grand babies
It seems like yesterday that we were shopping for DD dress! She tried on so many. She was a lovely bride- gorgeous in fact! So will your DD be! Believe it or not I didn't cry. I gained a son! The only time I did sorta get emotional was during the Father daughter dance. I was watching her become the woman she is today. And what a awesome one she is.
I know that your kids are going to be the same. Our parenting skills are similar. I was as invested as you are currently. It really does pay off!
Details Details- did you find a place?
KMOM- I was 6/5 yesterday. I picked up some GREAT water.
So glad you are having such a good time with your family. Has it been awhile since you have seen them?
TRIG- MISSED-- I know you are having fun! Rain, sleet or shine- ya got your toes in the sand, and ribeye on the grill.
BLUE- you are so right- that nasty scale can kiss my smaller tush! I am getting back into some clothes I have not been able to wear for over a year. I just feel better, lighter, more energy than I have in several years. Again- I had no idea how "sick" I was. Fear of surgery just shut me down. Now fully healed- I think, or pretty darn close- I feel amazing!
I love being on the other side. You gals were also so helpful to get me here!
But I got here- nothing left to do now but Thrive
I am ready for some sunshine! - I did get a walk in last night and was chewed up by those pesky skeeters. It is just SO humid and wet and warm- those bugs are just thriving as well! But not ready to hide inside. It just comes with summer. I love summer! Just ready for the sun!
Need to do the usual - domestic goddess stuff this morning, brought a little work home (not much) to finish up, and will stop over to my moms this afternoon for an hour or so. I picked up a tee shirt and mug for her and her husband for watching Bella while I was gone. Plus I want to lay eyes on her. Have not seen her since she has been outta the hospital.
I am thinking Riced Cali tonight with chicken strips oven fried MEME style with a dipping something I will whip up. I will get chicken tenders- and coat them in egg wash roll them in pork rinds/spices- yum!
I am finding that if I cook up to much at once I am wasting half down the drain- so I need to sorta just cook for a day or so and shop little bits more often. Tired of tossing meat/ food away because I make a lot and can't eat it fast enough.
Truth be told I really don't / won't eat meat that has been cooked and refrozen. BLECH.....
My Bella is lying at my feet- my coffee is gone, finished speaking with my daily conversation with the DS- now I guess I need to get moving!
I want to find some sorta active meet up- or class- something I can do a couple times a week that I pay for (I will show up then)- To get me slowly back into the staying moving and active. So I will look into that today.
I pick up the kids tomorrow at the airport- in the afternoon. I will bring them back here feed them and send them on their way. They will be exhausted- 30 hour flight. And 2PM my time is like 2 am their time- it will be a huge jet lag. So it will be interesting to see what they want to do. I will make a pot of something simple- make soup- or BBQ Pork.
Ok all today I am totally on plan! And going to move and get some fresh water.
