What's On Your Menu For Today?

Good morning!!!!!  Can you believe I'm going to blog twice in one week?  Me either...it's probably a fluke, or the planets are perfectly aligned with the rising of the moon and the setting of the sun.  Or?  Maybe I'm getting back on track.  Yep, let's go for that last one!

Anywho, last night for dinner I made Diet Cola Chicken, which is quickly becoming a staple in my house.  It's quick, easy and tastes WONDERFUL!  I make it with 4 chicken breast halves and have 3 meals left over, which is perfect for me.  I had a side of peas with it and it was an awesome, filling meal.  I use Diet Coke, but depending on your taste and how much you want to experiment, you could probably use just about any diet soda you wanted.  I've been kicking around the idea of using Diet Orange Sunkist...I'm thinking it would taste pretty good!

Today, for lunch, I think I'm going to make Shelly's Broccoli Beef Bites, but instead of using beef, I'm going to use some deli sliced turkey and add some cheese.  Since having RNY, I've become pretty much anti-red meat.  I use ground beef occasionally to make my spaghetti sauce and I might have a hamburger when I eat out it I can't find anything else, but that's pretty rare. 

I don't have a picture of the egg bites, but if you head over to The World According To Eggface, you can find more recipes like the Broccoli Beef Bites AND a really Cool Summer Giveaway To Enter!  So, what are you waiting for?!  Go!!!!  Enter for the contest and find a new recipe to try tonight for dinner....there's a lot to pick from.  Which one are you going to try?

New Me?

Once again, I have failed to keep up on my blogging.  I know, I know, shocking, right?!  For some reason time just gets away from me and POOF!  Almost 5 months has gone by since the last time I've been here.

Not much has changed....except for my super cool new haircut!  I LOVE it!  I've noticed (and have been told) that the more weight I shed, the shorter my hair gets.  Good thing I only have about 20 more pounds left, huh?!  Cause there's not much hair left of the top of my head LOL  I like to call it my Ellen-do....it freaking ROCKS!

Me!  July, 2012

There it is....up there....that's me!  Can you believe it?!  Me either!  What a journey it has been.  There have been a lot of ups and downs, but I wouldn't have changed a thing.  In one word, it's been...Amazing.

Anywho, I really need to get back on track, get my head out of the clouds and buckle down.  I've come too far to not make this work.  I'm going to start planning ahead with my meals, shakes and exercise.  I think people call it being organized ;)

Talk About A Break!!!!

Well, well, well....Where in the heck have I been?!  I've been around, but man, have I been slacking in the blogging world.  I've been reading other blogs, just not paying any attention to my own.  I'm sorry for leaving you all in thin air, but I'm back!

I have a lot to say, but I'm pretty sure y'all don't want to hear it all, so I'll start with the highest point.  For starters, I have passed my 1 year RNY surgery anniversary.  Actually, I'm almost 18 months out!  I can't believe it!  I'm down 118 pounds total and have about 22 left to go.  Some days it's 22, other days it's 25, depending on my scale and my eating habits.  My scale and eating habits are a whole different post!  So, moving on.

For my 1 year mark, I had one of my friends do a 100 pound photo shoot...it was so much fun!  I'll post some of the pics below.  We have decided that when I hit goal, we're going to do another shoot, so I can hardly wait, Kristen did a wonderful job!  I highly recommend if you have the funds or the time to do one of these shoots.  It doesn't have to be fancy and it was a great visual motivation for me to be able to put the beginning, 6 month and 1 year pictures next to each other to see how far I have come.  So, without further ado...here are some pics!
