Risotto!

If you’re interested in what I’ve eaten today, don’t forget to check out my food diary!

The weather has been gorgeous today!

It’s only looking fabulous for the rest of the week (after a thunderstorm tonight)

Weatherweek

My life has changed a little since cohabitation began on October 29th. It was inevitable, you stop living alone and your routines change.  A and I used to have “date night” every Friday.  It was the only night we were guaranteed to see each other.  Now our Friday nights have switched to grocery shopping together and having frozen pizza for dinner (gone are the days of eating out – luckily we are doing a fab job saving money in the process).  When we were at Superstore on Friday we picked up some PC Splendido Risotto (Quattro Formaggi).  I made it for dinner tonight and it was divine!  I added a little margarine and a little shredded old cheddar to it.  AMAZING!

Of course with tonight’s beautiful weather, I had the urge to BBQ!  A took out chicken thighs for me this morning and I marinaded them in a sweet and sour sauce for a couple of hours before firing up the BBQ! I also had some spicy peas and some garlic green beans.  Here’s dinner:

Looking at the pics I feel like I could already eat another plate full.

I’m happy to report I stayed right on track today and haven’t strayed at all from my healthy food plans!

Hey again!

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted!  I don’t have any good reason for not posting.  Really it’s been a lack of things to post on and a lack of healthy food to blog about.

I met up with my cousin for lunch yesterday. She has done Bernstein’s diet numerous times.  She started at it again in January and is down 60lbs.  She told me she eats no more than 800 calories a day.  The only carbs she eats is melba toast.  She really eats mostly fruits, vegetables, tuna and chicken.  I immediately was jealous of her success, but I realized I could never live that life.  She knows a crash diet is not healthy and she knows she’ll gain weight again.

So while I’m not going to the extreme my cousin is, she did manage to inspire me.  Today, all healthy eats (see My Fitness Pal for my food diary).

Here are some photos to share…

And… some back yard photos.  I’m learning what shrubs and flowers I have and planning on adding a flower bed and more flowers.  We’re also working on getting our grass in shape!
