I just cannot do a home improvement project and manage to keep the house clean and cook.
So we ate a lot of fast food and frozen dinners last week.
But my project is done...and menus are back on.
O have been trying to lose weight...all these menus have taken their toll on my waistline. uh...you know. that, six kids and a whole lotta chocolate. : )
I tried atkins for the last couple of weeks, but I thought it was too restrictive to be realistic for me. I found myself missing veggies. who knew?
So, next week I am going to try south beach. It's a little more moderate...so this week I thought I would fill in the gap with recipes from skinnytaste.com -- I am hoping that these taste good...because they look amazing!
And seriously...going to make these:
And in the spirit of full disclosure...I fell off the sugar wagon this weekend. White Chocolate Bread Pudding at Sweetwater. 2 of Janet Cherry's freaking amazing lemon drop cookies. A little chocolate. And birthday cake.
When I fall...I fall hard.
But, even though I didn't lose any weight not eating sugar...I did feel better and I plan find a way to eliminate (most) sugar from my life. I think there is nothing wrong with the occasional treat -- but it was really more a way of life for me.
I did manage to go 3 weeks without it. That's a big deal for me. And it gives me hope.
AND... i'm 93 days without caffeine.
