Hi, Beach Beauties!
Looks like you had a busy weekend! Me, too...but missed chatting with everyone. Weekends are so busy...I rarely get time to get on the computer.
Glad that mostly everyone is feeling better. Hope that trend continues! Being sick in the winter is kind of fun...but getting under covers in the hot summer is not exactly a blast.
Feel better soon!
Kiko, sounds like you are on the right track! That lemon couscous chicken is amazing. Enjoy it!
Ruth, as always, I admire your wonderful green thumbs (you must have at least two!) Hope the whole spa experience wasn't too much for Lucy! Have you ever posted pics of Lucy and Hershey? I'd love to see them!
Ellis, I'm so glad you got some "medicinal herbs"
for your dad. Hope they help with the pain as much as they are said to. Bless you for keeping your sense of humor!
Jenn, do not despair! Payday is coming!
I think you should head to Phase 2 to help with some of these doldrums. If you need to go back to phase 1, you can, but it will be so much easier when you are surrounded by good choices! I totally agree with whomever said that it sucks to have good food be so expensive when the lousy choices are super expensive.
Little Chick: Good for you on staying OP in spite of being so darn sick! I still cannot believe how much you get done before I am even awake!
DH and I went to see Harry Potter on Friday. I was afraid that we wouldn't get tickets, so persuaded him to stop by the movie theater before going to dinner. A friend from my last class stopped by me in line and asked if we wanted a free ticket for the show starting in forty minutes. We were able to buy another, so ended up going to that show. Talking about being set up for failure! I was so hungry and decided not to bring nuts, for whatever hairbrained reason...so there I was, dreaming of popcorn and hungry. But I stood my ground and did not get any.
yay for self control!
: I was thrilled to make it. I enjoyed the movie immensely, but could not believe that we had 30 mins or more of previews and commercials. Wow!
Saturday I slept in until 3:00 in the afternoon. I think I was tired! Ran and got some plants at the nursery, and then made a dinner of filet mignon, salad, tomatoes with pesto, roasted garlic and olive oil couscous, and then dark chocolate covered strawberries, which we had with coffee (with hazelnut syrup) while playing Pente, a truly addictive game. It was a very nice evening! On Sunday we went to church, then had leftovers for lunch. We drove out to Lowe's and picked up the basement windows and some landscaping plants. Put those in along with the other plants I picked up on Sat. and then did grocery shopping and bed. Busy, busy!
Having a Cooking Light recipe for dinner with eggplant and WW pasta. Sounds yummy! Probably going to do premade chicken salad and make some lowfat coleslaw for lunch. I'm not getting enough veggies and I can feel it!
Still at 290, but it's my TOM, so I hope it'll jump down after. I did 28 mins on the elliptical this a.m. and about 7 mins of weights for my arms. Got a late start to the gym so didn't get to do as much exercise as I wanted.
