New Kicks!

Hello all. I hope everyone had a nice weekend and a good start to the week. My weekend was OK. I shopped a lot. I didn’t really find much in the way of clothes though. I don’t know if it’s just a bad time or I was bloated but nothing seemed to fit right. I didn’t lose any weight last week so I think that sort of bummed me out because I really am aiming for that 75 pounds. I know that’s greedy so I won’t complain any more about that, I just felt a little disappointed that I didn’t lose. Usually, when I don’t lose, I know why...this time was a little confusing...so I immediately started evaluating why I might not have lost. Anyway, it’s fine. I will get there soon enough. It’s also really good news that I didn’t gain any weight. It was funny because I weighed and I was up .2 (which I don’t really consider a gain) so I used the bathroom and tried again and I was up a little more. I tried weighing a few times on Saturday and every time I did, I was heavier so eventually I just said forget it and decided I would wait until next week and try again.

So, aside from the shopping and the scale time I spent this weekend, it was pretty good. I ate two great cheat meals, hung out with friends and family AND my mom bought me some new shoes...



I desperately needed a new pair and I finally found some. It took me forever to find some that fit and had support. I have VERY wide feet and I have no arches. I don’t just have flat feet, my ankles go inward when I walk so it’s important that I have good shoes. I have also lost weight in my feet so it is not easy for me to find shoes. It took A LOT of time...just ask my Dad. It also takes me awhile to break a new pair of shoes in and it’s a very painful process. My feet hurt pretty bad walking yesterday but hopefully it won’t take them long to stretch a little and for my feet to adjust to them. So...thanks again Mom!

After I walked yesterday afternoon, I came home and made my recipe...



It was Turkey Bacon Biscuits and Macaroni & Cheese. Weight Watchers has a ton of different recipes for mac & cheese because it’s a comfort food and we never want to give those up. I chose this one because it used Dijon mustard and I have some of that in my fridge that I need to get rid of. The problem with any pasta dish is that you get less and it is always more in points than you want to spend. That little bowl of macaroni and cheese was 5 points. Luckily, I had a lot of points left for dinner so I could get seconds but as always, I like to maximize the amount of food I get. The biscuits were awesome. They were easy to make and very tasty. They were also only 2 points per biscuit. I will definitely be making those again.

Anyway, I really enjoy cooking and I think this recipe thing has shown me a lot of ways to make filling foods. I also watch a ton of Food Network so I’ve learned a lot about how to improvise without recipes and come up with my own things. Ok-that was pretty much all I had. Have a wonderful night!

“Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
I'm ok, I'm alright
Ain't gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord! Somebody to Love-Queen
