I wrote this Saturday but couldn’t get it to post. I’m posting now cuz Rae asked me to…
I’ve not been losing weight. I wont talk about it much. There isn’t mush to say. I’ve been tracking my points. I didn’t exercise as much as I should have but still more than I used to. The scale just doesn’t move. I’ve almost been on weight watchers for two months! I’ve only lost five pounds. I’m just trying to breathe, stay motivated and somehow not go too overboard with candy this week…Although a funsize most things is only 2 points thus far.
I saw that Ab was struggling with fast dinners. I have a hard time with wanting to just go out to eat because it is so much faster than trying to make something. Tacos used to be my go to meal for when I didn’t have much time because it doesn’t take too long to brown meat, add seasoning and chop tomatoes. They aren’t really that healthy though. So now my answer to the fast meal situation is my slow cooker. I usually have a lot more time in the morning. My daughter doesn’t seem as needy as she does when the five o’clock hour hits. So, next week I am going to throw a bunch of chicken in the slow cooker with chicken broth and water and let it cook and dice it up. Then when I need a quick meal I can put together chicken fajitas, chicken quesidillas, Hawaiian haystacks, or chicken teriyaki easy. I also love this chilli recipe. It makes plenty for us for leftovers so I will throw this on salad for taco salad. MMM… Chili
