Care to join me?
I was just at my sister Carrot Jello's site. She has bells and whistles, color and fun. I got nothin. So enjoy her as a treat from me. It's her blog birthday so pop in and wish her well.
HUGE PROBLEM - I got muffin tops. Christmas was hard on me... I am at my upper Echelon...I passed out when I looked at the scale so, if you are in the same boat here is what I am going to do about it.
This morning - 4 miles, walked 2 ran 2. I am experiencing double knee trouble but I am not going to be discouraged, walking is great, just takes longer, I got up earlier.
For Breakfast I got the brown rice out of the rice cooker and added milk cinnamon and sugar, deeelicious and it filled me up nicely. After breakfast I made my lunch along with my husband's and children. I made a beautiful chicken wrap on a spinach tortilla with corn, salsa, tomatoes, cabbage, black beans and brown rice, and a bit of sour cream. I just ate half, and am saving the second half for two hours from now.
I have a SERIOUS obstacle to face tonight and it is called Olive Garden gift certificates. We were given $150 to take the family out. It is my mothers birthday so it is party time, don't tell Carrot, she isn't invited;) I was always my mothers favoirte and I would like to keep it that way. I went online and planned out what I am going to order, picked the entree with the healthy sign and am determined to stick to the plan. I have already decided that the dessert (oh yes there will be dessert) I am going to order will be shared with my husband and 2 year old.
I, with countless zillions of women know how to lose weight. I have gained and lost the equivalent of a small nation in the past - so, onward and thinward... Let go you evil holiday pounds! I am not afraid of you...I'm ready! "if ye are prepared ye shall not fear." (D&C 38: 30 )
