Day 26

I decided to post the days happenings a little early this time around. it was an average Saturday and dinner at mom in laws is on for tomorrow. I don't know what she is making yet, we have to decide and call her in the morning with a shopping list :) any Ideas?

We made a Salsa chicken dish in the crock pot for dinner tonight and made rice and beans to go with it, it was pretty good and I will likely make it again, I read that its a weight watchers recipe and I may post it up on here later. I came in under calories for the day so I am glad for that, and the chicken was a good change from all of the roasted chicken we have been eating. I still feel good and not undernourished, actually feel like I am eating too much but it is only 1500 cals so I know I am good. I drank a ton of water and green tea today and I am trying to cut the crystal light back a bit.

I did get on the scale again this morning. man I gotta stop that. still in a downward motion so I am happy for that. I do miss riding the bike so I will ride tomorrow as I am feeling a bit better from this morning. I also want to thank everyone for their comments, the support is appreciated, I noticed a couple new names leaving them :) with that, I give you the menu..

Random bike picture, its an Italjet Griffon 650, I have been looking at lots of bikes lately and wify has agreed to let me get a bike as a reward when I hit my goal weight.

Grand total of 1476 calories for the day, I do think I am starting to eat later and later in the evening just to make up the calories, so I think I need to figure something out for that, I am up until 11:00pm most nights so from 8 to 11 is 3 hours so not too bad but still I feel its too late. I have a feeling that the meal at mom in laws will be calorie heavy again, last time was roast pork with all the trimmings. I will check this in the am and your assignment for the night/morning is to give me a recipe or idea for mom in law! lol Thanks for reading and tune in same bat time same bat channel next time kids!

As Ever


  1. Is it too late to take a pork tenderloin or a turkey breast to the smoke shop to have it smoked? That is such an easy way to take food to a get-together. We do that a lot. Other than that...I can suggest sweet potatoes as a side dish. They are very filling, and only 90 calories per 100 grams (which I found that even a small one is around 200 grams, but you end up throwing away the skin, which is about 60 grams!) Throw a tiny bit of brown sugar and cinnamon on there, and maybe a splash of lemon or orange juice, and it's like dessert! So good, if you ask me. And, I have to reccomend my friend Joanie's recipe for turkey meatloaf. It was super easy to make, and really good. My husband even liked it, who is a self-proclaimed "picky eater" and is nauseated by the words "meat" and "loaf" combined together. He had 3 servings because he liked it so much! I was very surprised. Anyway, I'd love to share that recipe with you if you are interested.
    Sorry I can't come up with more than that for now!
    You did great on your calories today! Have a great Sunday, and good luck with counting calories at the in-laws'!!

  2. Mr Meatball... that is so funny you, Robyn and myself are all looking and trying new food/recipes. I have a website I like to find recipes on -- but be careful they have all types -- the reason I like this site though is because they list the calorie AND serving size.
    I hope it helps.
