171.4! Scale’s going in the right direction. I am really pleased with this. I think I might be in the groove.
Not much to report. Its been a busy few days. Thursday we had the Spiritual Formation Salon that got cancelled due to snow the week before. It was a wonderful gathering of women sharing their spiritual journeys with each other. And my chicken taco soup was a winner. It was a combination of different things I had seen on the web. Just threw the chicken in the crockpot and cooked it for 8 hours. Oh heck, I’ll post the recipe over on the other blog. It was really really simple and very tasty.
Friday was work, another difficult day. The dad of the baby I was taking care of brought in a homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookie for me at the end of the day. And you better believe I ate that.
Then Saturday I spoke at a women’s luncheon at my church about my trip to Africa. Surprisingly, I was very relaxed about it, and I was super happy that they had a salad potluck! Very pleased with myself that I took 4 bites of dessert and then pushed the plate very far away from myself. I really enjoyed talking about my trip again, and what it meant to me. It reminded me that I never finished writing about the trip on this blog. I might do one more blog entry because I do have a lot of really great pictures to share.
I am getting ready for a little trip to see my BFF (who is doing W.W.) so we have talked about how we are going to stay on the straight and narrow this time. She eats a little differently than me, so I am going to take a cooler bag with some of my favorite lunch and breakfast stuff in it. Dinner we do the same, and we will definitely have some popcorn in the evening (she is the best popcorn maker in the world) and we will probably have frozen yogurt one day. I am really looking forward to this trip.
Not a whole lot more to say tonight, so I’ll just share some pictures. I have to work tomorrow, and then leave early Tuesday morning, so Noah is already at ‘camp.’ He LOVES it there. I was sad to leave him, but he didn’t give me a backward glance.
Sophie and Monk are enjoying a little quiet time!
Here’s some of the food from this week. Made a batch of my fried rice. It really does well as leftovers. It was really good with the broccoli in it.
Tonkght’s salad–romaine lettuce, shredded carrots and zucchini, and raisins and sunflower seeds. Some avocado would have been a nice addition.
Over and out. Have a great week! I know I will.
