I've been listening to the news this morning wondering what in the world is going on with the world! There are terrible Floods in Australia, snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the deep south, birds falling out of the sky, fish dying, men, women and children being shot - I would really love it if there was some good news!
It's really cold here in Idaho, but that's normal for January. We are expecting to be in the mid 30's by the end of the week - hallelujah! This morning it was a bone chilling -8 degrees in my backyard, that's too cold for anybody! Yesterday was a beautiful day, cold, but the sun was shining and the world looked all white and blue, with a few sparkly diamonds from the snow thrown in for added beauty!
Over the holidays, I gained about 10 pounds! I'm not going to beat myself up for it . . . no I'm not! I'm just going to do something about it... :0) I got busy this morning and planned my menu for the week. Friday you will find me right back at Weight Watchers, getting back on track! And . . . I have spent 30 minutes on my elliptical today!
Monday - Crockpot roast beef with potatoes and carrots, green salad with light dressing.
Tuesday - Crockpot Minestrone Soup, (I will put left over roast beef in mine), whole wheat bread to soak up the juice!
Wednesday - Grilled chicken breast, baked potato, California blend veggies, orange fluff salad (low fat and sugar free).
Thursday - White bean chicken enchiladas (made with left over chicken), green salad
Friday - Turkey zucchini burgers with sweet potato oven fries.
Saturday - Sloppy Joe's on whole wheat thins, coleslaw (low fat)
Sunday - Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, homemade rolls, chocolate cake with fluffy frosting and ice cream! Really!
I know, these recipes don't sound like healthy, low fat, high fiber and high protein foods - but they are! Well . . . all except the chocolate cake and icecream... ;0)
I will leave you with a cute picture of Averi playing the piano for us on Christmas Eve - it was amazing, and so is she!! I think she started the concert playing every Christmas song she knew, and some that we didn't know she knew! She ended her concert with Hallelujah Chorus, it was beautiful!
Stay safe and warm and dry!
