A recipe and I am still under the weather.

Today's report said a sore throat and congested chest and head 100% possibility and it came through, I still feel like I swallowed broken glass and have a bath towel stuck in my chest and nose, but I wanted to get a post up anyways. I stayed within my calories on Monday besides the tea in the morning with the honey and Brandy, i did not count that towards my calories but had about 100 extra at the end of the day so I am pretty close, I only drank 1 gallon of green tea plus maybe a 30oz cup of hot tea in the morning so this is effecting my keeping hydrated, but since I am pretty much just relaxing I am probably ok and I did not do anything for exercise yesterday besides walk around my yard with my daughter talking about the flowers and I ran out in the afternoon to restock my veggies supply in the house.

Chicken and veggies cooking up in the pan.

Since I am under the weather and am holding off on running until this whatever it is clears up I thought I would post a recipe, in fact I just made this about an hour ago for lunch. I started with 4oz chicken breast that I had grilled for dinner last night, I chopped it and set it aside, then into a frying pan I put some chopped up yellow onion, green bell pepper and shot of low cal cooking spray. When the onion and peppers were soft I dropped in some sweet red roasted peppers and the chopped up chicken, cooked it until the chicken was hot all the way through and then added a tiny squirt of pueblo pepper sauce that I had laying around.

Getting close, here it is before I wrapped it all up.

While that was finishing up I chopped up some tomato and lettuce and put it aside, I layed out my Lavash bread and dumped the chicken and veggies into it and added the lettuce and tomato. Then I rolled it up cut it in half and plated it with a garlic pickle wedge and the rest of the tomato chopped up as a side, of course I had green tea with it and it was pretty good if I do say so myself. Very filling and tasty and for a total of 365 calories I will make this concoction again, in fact I think this is something that Wify and my son would enjoy so I may try it out for dinner one night and se how they like it.

The finished product and a great way to spend 365 calories if ya ask me.

Just a quick post with a recipe for today, I am hoping that I will feel good enough by tomorrow to start week 3 and get this C25K thing rolling again but I am not going to push it because wify had this same thing the week before last and continued to run through some of it and did not have good results, in fact she stayed sick for more than a week and I don't plan on following in her foot steps on that one so easy does it is how it's going down. If you try the above recipe I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and remember that H2O, hydration is key to dropping the pounds in my humble opinion, Thanks for reading along.
