So I had a blood draw on Wednesday. Got the results back on Thursday. Not too bad. My liver levels have gone down by 50% since last time and are only 8 points higher than 'normal'. My overall cholesterol is a little high but not enough to be... Read more

I haven't logged into spark people for quite some time. I got my wisdom teeth extracted on the 20th. I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and ended up with a terrible headache that lasted for days and then I got dehydrated. Not to mention, ... Read more

I'm on a roll. Last night's dinner wasn't good and neither was this evening's. I made Greek Pasta and Shrimp. I think it would have been good had I not accidentally used "Chili Ready" canned tomatoes. ... Read more

I made Philly chicken sandwiches for dinner. They weren't good and I ended up with digestive issues. About 9 o'clock I went to the basement to do a load of laundry and found that our sink had backed up. What a mess. So my husband and I spent... Read more

Our weather is crazy! I had to bust out a long sleeved shirt. It is 63 degrees and there is a rather brisk breeze. It is cloudy. I'm waiting for the rain. And it is August. Isn't it supposed to be 90 degrees and humid? So, since it is... Read more

I just did a weigh in and I have lost 14 pounds thus far. I thought to myself, 14 pounds isn't a lot especially considering how much further you have to go. And I realized that I needed to change my perspective. 14 pounds is the combine... Read more

For dinner this evening I made a spark recipe. Easy Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms. My husband requested stroganoff so I set out to find something similar that would be healthier and easier to make than my usual version of beef stroganoff. Wh... Read more
I had a hard time meal planning this week.
Saturday, July 27, 2013      0 comments

Meal planning was difficult this week. I had a tough time finding recipes that everyone in my family would eat. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. They aren't extremely picky but they don't make things easy. At least they like veggies! ... Read more
