Today I did absolutely nothing but cook! Earlier I made the easy Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo. Tonight for dinner I made a roast chicken stuffed with fresh red apples and onion.. around the chicken I roasted Yukon Gold potatoes and more fresh red apples! YUM! It was delicious & very tender!
:) I am having a hard time not baking pies, cakes, cookies etc. I love to bake but I can't eat those things. I love, love pie! I am missing pie! Isn't that sad? I love food! Today is day # 19 of my healthy lifestyle change. It has not been easy. I write everything down in my food journal, and this can be quite annoying... But, I am doing it! Lots of egg whites, fresh veggies, fresh fruits, chicken breast, fish, salads! No butter, oil, cheese, meat, sweets, cokes, & NO FAST FOOD! I think this is a record.... 19 days without butter.. I need to start a group for people like me, Butter addicts anonymous! :):) LOL
I weighed Monday morning ! I lost 5 lbs. I went from 204 to 199! Yeah!!! Total is 10 lbs! My scales haven't seen below 200 in a while!! WOOHOO! It feels really good! I am feeling better and I don't feel so irritated and tired! I have a lot more energy and I am sure my daughter is thankful for Mommy to be a little more energetic! I am not only doing this for me, but for my family! They are my life, my loves and I want to be the best I can be for them:)
Thank you all for checking on me and reading my blog! I love hearing from you all:) If you have any special requests for recipes, please feel free to email me!
