Thoughts too small for their own blog post...

I have a bunch of weird random things running through my head.

  • Currently watching The Voice and I LOVE it!!! So much more than American Idol. Plus Blake isn't too bad to look at either :)
  • With the hubby working so hard, there's a number of things I've had to do around the house that I would call less than glamorous. Such as, unclogging the toilet. I've never had a clog that a few plunges couldn't fix. Well, let me tell you. Nothing makes me panic worse than watching that murky water rise to the top of the bowl and praying that nothing seeps over. YUCK! Thank you mom for recommending the best drain cleaner. I fixed it, all on my own! {Sorry, TMI}
  • Also, laughing at the fact that James wondered out loud if maybe Swampy lived in that nasty water. He plays waaayyy too much Where's My Water!
  • Baseball signups are this weekend....Woo Hoo! I was beginning to hate all the free time I've had lately ;)
  • I had a steak and cheese Subway sandwich tonight with jalapenos. I've been adding crushed red pepper to everything lately. The hotter, the better. I don't know what's wrong with me.
  • I'm very thankful for my friends. Every single one of you! Even though I don't see you for a couple of months, or talk by text most of the time, I know you all have my back. And, something can be said for that.
  • I'm also super thankful for my hubby. Our situation isn't the easiest right now, distance is our biggest factor {not theoretical, he's seriously like 500 miles away}. But, I know this is a season of life that we have to go through to get to where we want to be. No pain, no gain, right?
  • I'm also loving my little man. He's so super sweet. He was the biggest cuddle bug last night. For a 10 year old boy to still love to give hugs and be sweet is crazy to me. But, I soak up every moment because one day, it won't be cool anymore.
  • James bought me Lindor Truffles for Valentine's Day. I never knew chocolate could taste sooo good!
  • I ran over a squirrel today...on work property. Smooth move...
  • I've been on a dieting hiatus this week. I had a kid free weekend and I needed to eat pizza and drink wine. Then I needed some chocolate and Mexican food. I think I have satisfied every craving, so I plan to start up again tomorrow.
Well, that's what's going on with me lately. Love~

It takes a special girl... love a boy who puts snakes on his Valentine's box! He always keeps me guessing that's for sure!

Happy V-Day!

Snow Day!

We got our first snow of the year today! To me, it was the perfect snow. Pretty at first, but gone the same day LOL. James hung out with my momma today and make his Valentine's Day goodie box and made out his Valentines. He also made this cute little snowman!

Here's to hoping for school tomorrow!

Wednesday Weigh In and Chicken Tortilla Soup

I've done the Elliptical a couple times this week for about 10-15 minutes week. I'm ready for warmer weather!

Ummm.what diet? This week wasn't very good for me. Well, it was good up until Saturday. My hubby was home so Saturday we had lunch at Logan's, then I made chili for dinner {at his request}. Then Sunday, we celebrated my grandma's 82nd birthday! We had roast and carrots/potatoes--my favorite meal ever! Monday night, James played his last basketball game at 9 pm!! It was sooo ridiculous, but before hand we ate Mexican food. It was absolutely delicious!

Weekly weight loss:
To my surprise, I lost .2 lbs this week. Definitely better than I thought!

Cooking more meals at home and making smarter choices while eating out.

My hubby being home! LOL No, I love to see him of course, but man he knows how to eat and eat well. Steak, potatoes, brownies, all that great food that you shouldn't eat!

Weekly Snapshot:
Tonight, I made Chicken Tortilla Soup. This is my new favorite soup and the lime makes it out of this world!!

Here's how I made it:

2 chicken breasts boiled and shredded
1 can black beans rinsed
1 can corn
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 cans chicken broth
1 small onion
1-2 jalapenos
2 tablespoons minced garlic
4 corn tortillas cut into small strips
1 avocado
1-2 limes

Start by sauteing your onion, pepper, and garlic in a large pot. Once brown, add your diced tomatoes, chicken broth, shredded chicken, corn and black beans. Let simmer about 20-30 minutes. Add tortilla strips and simmer another 10 minutes or so. Serve with lime and sliced avocado. I used about 1/2 a key lime on my small bowl of soup and O.M.G I am IN LOVE! Ok, I'll stop talking now...

Why is it...

...that I can diet all week and lose 1 pound. Then I decide to eat a Big Mac and fries and lose 2 pounds the next morning?? True Story!!!

Maybe that's the key to success :)

Wednesday Weigh In (1 day late...oops)

unless you count grocery shopping and running up and down the stairs, then it's no bueno. I just haven't had any energy this week. I went to bed at 9 pm 2 nights this week. That's crazy for me! Plus, I bought an elliptical this week. I have spent about 10 minutes on it this week :)

Doing pretty well. I'm trying to scale back on the frozen dinners. I think I've only eaten a couple this week. Cooking at home is sooo much better for you!

Weekly weight loss:
I lost .8 lbs this week. So almost a pound! I'll take a small loss over a gain any week!

Adding fresh, healthier foods to my diet!

Exercise again, there are not enough hours in the day!

Weekly Snapshot:
Meet my new BFF, she's a b!tc4!! And, James will demonstrate how she works...
