Throwback Thursday: Another Moving Day

May 29, 2014

Read more about my Grand Junction roadtrip and see the full slideshow (just realized most of the photos were taken with my T-Mobile Dash!) I can't believe it's been seven years since I decided I wanted to camp in Zion. We passed right by it on this trip and I realized Utah was only a day away.

Throwback Thursday: Wedding Reception Kiss

I couldn't find one of myself that I liked, but I did find this one of my daughter and nephew that is just adorable. I'm not sure if they would feel the same way about each other today.

Menu Plan Monday: Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

May 12, 2014

To get in mah belly, apparently. In looking for variety and ease this week, most of my meals call for chicken. Lunch again this week will be either tuna avocado salad or leftovers.

Monday: Stuffed sweet potatoes (with turkey bacon)

Tuesday: Pecan Crusted Chicken (or Steak Salad if the heat is too much)
Wednesday: Zucchini Parmesan
Friday: Blackened Chicken with zoodles and avocado cream sauce

So, what are you eating this week?

Taken on an epic road trip with Jes back in 2007. I'm not sure which one of us was holding the camera to be honest...

Wordless Wednesday: Waking up Happy

Menu Plan Monday: Let's Get Back To Clean Eating

May 6, 2014
The last few weeks (months?) I have been lazy and fell back into some old habits. The result, I've gained back some of my hard-lost weight, I feel weak and tired all the time, and I crave carbs like nobody's business. To the point where I resorted to eating a piece of (Orowheat Honey Wheat Berry) bread dry. No butter (apple or otherwise), and once with chocolate coconut frosting on top. I mean, who does that????

You don't even want to know how much chocolate I have eaten in moments of emotional stress, or boredom. It doesn't help that the office candy lady now sits right next to me ...

This week I have endeavored to eat more healthily and get back on the mostly paleo diet that has been working wonders for me (losing weight with minimal high impact exercise? Sign me up!). Dinner menu is below, IP had some input, and the Teen is back in town so I'll have to adjust how much I cook for the next three months.

My lunches for the week will either be leftovers or Tuna Avocado Salad.

And yes, I started playing Ingress again.

Sunday: tried and true Beef and Bean Chili Verde (this time with white kidney beans, which kind of freaked IP out until she tasted it).

Monday: It's Cinco de Mayo!!! Mole and Spanish Rice (recipe forthcoming, though I seem to say that every year)...

Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Soup
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Grilled Citrus Chicken Thighs with Strawberry Avocado Salad
Friday: Chicken Tandoori

It's really hot in LA. We aren't having much of a spring, so today's "Casual Friday" at work I broke out the shorts and cute floral crochet flats. See better shots at ...

Throwback Thursday: Becoming a Mother

May 1, 2014
20 years ago this week I gave birth to this kid here:

At 13 he was already a charmer and looker

And he finishes finals today, sophomore year in college. Damn, how the time flies
