26 Days Out

Yay, for Mondays!  Time to make a fresh list of to-do’s and get busy!

I had a wonderful Easter yesterday with my Mom’s side of the family.  We headed over there for an afternoon meal.  I made that brownie/cream cheese/strawberry dessert again to take over there along with my Tupperware of chicken and green beans.  Everyone was so supportive and genuinely interested in what I was doing and how everything was going.  It was all so positive. 

My sister had everyone over to her place that evening for more desserts and to see my nephews have their Easter celebration from the Easter bunny.  I enjoyed looking at all the yummy treats!


My sister had peanut butter M&M’s, my FAVORITE girl scout cookies, cupcakes, other people had brought cakes and cookies, my dessert from earlier was there along with a cheesecake from my Mom’s, oh, and not to mention all the Easter candy for the boys!!  I stuck a big fat wad of gum in my mouth and let it all go!  Soon enough I will have those treats!  Justin was upset that I didn’t bring him a cupcake.  Honestly, all those sweets were off-limits in my mind.  I didn’t even think about taking one home!  I have a habit of thinking of Justin and I as one, so whatever I can’t have, he can’t have.  Not true in this case, he wanted a cupcake darn it!

I rested yesterday from any working out.  It was a pretty busy day and I was tired all day so I needed the rest.  Back at it today!

My other Meals from yesterday were:

Meal #1: Grapefruit and Egg Whites

Time to get busy!

  4. Thank you, Justin! I love being your wife!

    Mrs. Britton and Git it Girl, thank you for the nice comments! I am glad you are enjoying all the food pics! Roasted veggies are my favorite way to eat veggies and the easiest way to prepare them! I throw frozen veggies on a cookie sheet sprayed with pam, I spray the veggies with Pam, sprinkle with salt and cook at 400 for 30-35 minutes for the broccoli and brussel sprouts and 20-25 for the green beans. So yummy and super easy!

  5. Great job staying strong! It's hard but once you get through it, you know it was worth it. AND awesome for everyone being so supportive!!
