3.5 days left until Goal Date/MiniGoal Weight. 4 pounds to go. I think I can do it! I have worked out every day this week, and my precious Aunt Flo came to visit yesterday (TOM, .) Would it be to much information to tell you how it started (my period that is)....hmmmm...probably.....
Okay, so here is what happened! Tracey usually sits in our big, wide, comfy arm chair. Everynight, I go over to him, stand there, blink my eyes. He moves the pillows around and sits right in the middle of the chair. I straddle him and sit on his lap, he wraps his arms around me, and I tuck my head in "my nook". Which is somewhere between his neck and chest. This is an innocent, rarely naughty move. It is just a moment we take to connect and be quiet. ANYWAYS, I stood up last night after our hug and uh-oh! You can connect the dots, but I didnt KNOW it was that time of the month, and we realized it by looking at Tracey's shorts. Nuff said? Good story for Cosmo's embarrassing period story articles.
MY POINT IS.....my period usually lasts three days. So it should be gone by weigh in day. Possibly taking some water weight with it? huh? Yeah? You feeling me?
Also, we went to bootcamp Monday, and did Jillian's 30 day shred Tuesday and Wednesday night. WOO, good workout! Tracey is doing it with me, bless his heart (that's what you say down in the south when you are about to say something less than flattering). He tries. But boys aren't accustomed to aerobic classes and hoping around. He can for sure do the strength part of it....the hopping and twisting part is more of a challenge. Bless his heart.
I made meatloaf last night using a new recipe. It actually called for the meatloaf to be made in cupcake pans (12 cupcakes)!!! What a cute and great idea. Guess what!? Amy has no cupcake pans. So, I just made it in a normal pan. Here is the recipe:
1lb ground beef
1 package Stove Top Stuffing (it calls for the chicken flavor)
1 cup water
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup bbq sauce
Mix it all up and bake that sucker at 375 until the internal temp is 160 degrees.
If you didnt want to do BBQ and garlic powder, you could use salsa and chili powder, marinara sauce and Italian seasoning. Play around with it.
Also, I make some mean Taco Soup. Have I shared the recipe before?
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can pinto beans
1 can chili beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans (drained, rinsed)
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning
2 packages Taco Seasoning
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
Brown beef and onion. Put in big pot. Add everything else. Bring to boil, let simmer for at least an hour (you could make this in a crock pot also). All those beans add up to a good amount of sodium, but it makes A LOT, so you can put them in little bowls and freeze them for a take to work or quick lunch kinda thing!
