Super Easy Chicken

Who doesn't like a great recipe with the words "Super Easy" in them? This has been a long time favorite of my family's and I can't believe it's been so long since I've made it.

The  best part of this don't have to cook anything!!!  Okay, well technically you have to cook the chicken (I don't advise eating raw poultry), but the secret is in the crockpot. ;)

Just another day...

So I don't have a ton to say tonight. Today was decent food wise. I hopped on the scale this morning and it was back up again, no surprise. BUT I did get 7 hours of sleep, it was nice. Tonight I also tried out a "new" dish. Blech. I actually made this casserole back in January and it had been hiding the freezer. So this morning I had Adam pull it out so it could unthaw.

Vitalicious Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to review products from Vitalicious. The makers of the original 100 calorie snack food that's healthy for you. I had seen these "VitaTops" on several blogs and websites recently and was really curious as to what they were all about. Now I know...

Weigh Me Monday

Good Morning! Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend. Ours was interesting...

Since the hubby works overnights we didn't make it to Sunrise Services. We did attend regular services and following that we helped the kids with an Easter egg hunt. That was fun. We took some family pictures (read: My Mom tried to use my camera and well, she did the best she could with what she had to work with). Then we ran to the grocery store because I just knew we wouldn't be eating before 3pm. I bought two pounds of strawberries; my hubby and I split almost a pound for a snack.

I'm baaaccckkkk

Well, after having two days worth of computer issues, I'm back. Just wanted to give an update on Mr. Pinky. Still not looking pretty. It started to feel better...until I kicked my husbands trash can beside the bed last night.

Things Are Not Looking Promising...

I'm dreading this next weigh in... I hopped on the scale this morning/afternoon and well, sadly it was up THREE POUNDS.

My sleep, no exercise, and um you remember those cookies? The FOUR DOZEN we made, yeah they disappeared in two days time. And I'm pretty sure the kids only had 5, maybe. So that means either my husband or I ate them. Guess I should be woman enough to admit that after finding my strength yesterday I lost it over night.

I Just Did It

Seriously! The picture of the cookies in the last post? I totally passed them up. I opened the container, tried to grab two of them but I couldn't. That's 160 calories of yummy baked goodness...that's not so healthy.

I totally closed the lid, turned around and plucked out a wedge of laughing cow, 9 pita bites, a stick of weight watchers cheese, and a cup of banana-berrie smoothie. Yes, it's a total of 340 calories of all of that...but this food is much better than two measly little cookies.

Strength...I think I just found it.

Really? Has it been that long?

Funny thing, I just had a reader point out that it's been FIVE WEEKS since I've had a "back slide." I'm beside myself giddy about that.

So I guess to even things out I had three Toll House Eater Cookies tonight...a planned splurge! I couldn't disappoint my baby girl. After all she made these especially for me. I don't even really know how to describe "what's working for me" or how it's working for me, but I think I'm going to give it a shot.

Weigh Me Monday

I have not been to bed. I've been up over 24 hours...I'm starting to get sleepy, but I've got stuff to do today. I'm hoping that I can *finally* get my sleep pattern back on a normal track. But every time I do it gets derailed and I'm right back where I started.

Food wise, even with the bizarre hours, I've done really well. So let's check the scale for this week, shall we?

So without giving too much information away, I received a fabulous sample in the mail to review for the blog. It's for a product I've seen around on various blogs and I FINALLY get to try it out. So there will be an in depth review coming soon. Happy Dance, Happy Dance, Happy Dance.

In other news, what a night I had last night. I, for whatever reason, could not sleep. I finally crashed at 7:30 this morning. My hubby, God bless him, let me sleep until 2pm when he had to go to bed. So needless to say at 9:35pm I'm not feeling too sleepy and I've only managed to squander away 1,100 calories. I'm going to do my darnedest to squeeze a few more in before I hit the sack, when ever that will be.

I did get some shopping in this evening and boy did I sweat my butt off. Phew. Well I think that's all the info in my brain for now. Till next time.

Citrus Chicken & Rice

I'm a chicken & beef gal. Born and raised on meat. I lived on a farm; raised, named and slaughtered our own animals. No matter how hard I tried I cannot get away from my yummy meat.

HOWEVER, the biggest change has been that I strictly eat boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and at least 93% lean ground beef.

Being that I was raised on fried taters and, well basically every meal included fried this or that with a side of bread & butter. I knew this is not how I wanted my children to live.

I did some research?

Last night I was on the prowl for a virtual weight loss do-hickey (yes, us MO hicks use that term). I wanted to see where I was, where I am, and where I want to be...visually.  Most of the simulators I found are no longer functioning. I did find a tool that let me adjust the weight, save the pic, and therefore gave me the desired affect I was after.

So let me introduce my Visual Me Project:

My Prize Pack and Mandarin Turkey Salad

I swear it feels like I've been trying to write this post for days now. It's just been so gorgeous that I've been working on my photography with the gorgeous out doors and playing with the kids. So I apologize if it seems I've neglected updating, but my kids and my new found energy are coming first these days.

So to start I'd like to share with you the amazing Weight Watchers Prize Pack I won from Scale Junkie a few weeks ago.

Let's Talk

You know I felt really great posting my food diary each night. I felt like it held me accountable to someone, though I'm not sure who that is exactly. So after I completed my 21 day challenge I sort of dropped off the Earth.

Hearty Rice Skillet

My hubby surprised me yesterday and made a meatless lunch. He found the Hearty Rice Skillet in one of our many cookbooks. It was different for me, as we don't have many meatless dishes; which I am looking to change.


I've never had a real-live mango until yesterday. It was yummy?

Weigh Me Monday

There is no hiding how excited I was to get on the scale this morning. There's no hiding my disappointment that the scale didn't drop further than it did previously this week. :(

Homemade Taco Salad Shell

If you haven't checked out my review on Eating Well's Tex-Mex Taco Salad I suggest you do so. It's a really great recipe.

Now, usually when I make this dish I eat Tostito's Multi-grain chips with it. They're good, however you don't get very many for the amount of calories in one serving. Also, a few days ago another blog I follow did this same thing, but for the life of me I cannot find the post. :(

21 Days | Day 21

Hmmm...what happened to yesterday's entry? Didn't I log it? I thought I did?

Oh wait, I was sitting in front of a toasty fire pit, surrounded by friends, and without electronics. It was an amazing night full of laughter. So, yesterday was great food wise, I even backed away from temptations when my best friend offered me Peanut Butter Chocolate Bugles, and Smores. So I did really good, not to mention I took baby girl on a bike ride and we played at the park.

21 Days | Day 19

I am very proud of myself today...very proud! I snuck a peak at the scale because quite frankly I'm obsessed at this point. And as long as I'm not depressing myself w/ the scale I have no problem's hopping on.

21 Days | Day 18 ~ What Happened?

So, um yeah. I didn't post my food diary for yesterday, but I had good reason. I was asleep. Yes, me, the queen of going to bed at 3am went to bed at NINE last night. Forgive me? Okay.
