    Good morning everyone.

    I am planning on not getting any exercise in today. I want to go to bed early tonight. I've stayed up an hour or two later than usual the past three or four days and am just really tired now.

    Lunch is chicken and mixed veggies. Breakfast was a breakfast sandwich. I'm not a big fan of them, but I haven't been getting up early enough this week to have a normal breakfast. urgh.

    Starting weight: 198 Current weight: 186

    Kali, I love, love, love asparagus! I will usually cut off the tough ends then cut the spear in thirds and kind of stirfry it with some EVOO, a little butter for flavor and of course garlic. Don't over cook it.

    Unless it it too cold outside it is wonderful on the grill - gas or charcoal. Again with the EVOO and garlic. I love all kinds of veggies on the grill or roasted in the oven. So good and so good for you.

    rachael2011 responded:
    Hi everybody. Lots of good ideas on the asparagus. Kind of makes me hungry for some!

    Breakfast was my usual: medium apple diced in oatmeal and 1 1/2C skim milk w sugar free chocolate syrup.

    Lunch was 1 1/4C cottage cheese w salsa, 15 baby carrots and a tangerine.

    Dinner will be 1C wheat pasta, diced tomatoes w garlic and 8oz chicken breast. Will have a side of cooked spinach for something green.

    I did my walk in place exercise DVD, about 30 minutes.

    Everybody have a good night!

    Hello all!!

    Had my two yogurts, about a cup of blackberries, about a cup of pistachios in the shell - don't know what that translates too. Then I had about two cups of celery, a small can of chicken and a 12 oz. can of V8. I'm thinking about some chicken tortilla soup for dinner if I feel hungry.

    I don't know what is the matter with me. I have been SO tired this week. I think I'll get my iron checked the next time I have blood drawn. Of course it seems that just about every medication I take causes 'drowsiness'. Wonderful. I haven't felt it this much for a long time. Trust me, I get plenty of sleep, usually. As a consequence I've been drinking WAY too much coffee to try to keep my head from hitting the Maybe it's the weather - it's been kind of gloomy outside the past couple of days..

    Everyone take care and be safe!!

    dinner: 1 small chick enchilada hod me made, 1 serving mixed nuts, (funny Michelle we had some same stuff tonight( 1 serving pistachios in the shell and 3/4 c, blackberries)
    I had 2 shrimp in the sauce we made at cooking school last night, and less than an oz. of pork and mixed veggies. The sodium will kill ya in these recipes.
