Working for the Weekend

I haven't stepped on my scale in weeks. This morning I got it out and to my surprise, I'd lost the 3lbs. I gained over the holiday. I'd still like to lose 10 more, but this is a start. My whole agenda is not necessarily to lose weight, but to be healthier.

This week was my first week of trying to eat better. I bought some Fage Greek yogurt at Whole Foods and it was AMAZING. I tried the strawberry one and it was very filling and delicious. It was better than Yoplait. I heard that the plain Fage yogurt was good and that you could add some whey protein to it to make it flavorful. I might have to try that.

I also got caught up on "The Biggest Loser" and I am dying to make Curtis Stone's Chicken Caccitore recipe. It sounded so yummy and healthy. I can't wait to make it this weekend and post it on Cookbook Jungle. How I wish Curtis Stone lived in my kitchen!

So, after I posted about my sweet tooth, this container of chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate covered raisins and dark chocolate pieces with sprinkles appeared. Sprinkles and chocolate are my weakness. When I go for ice cream, my cup looks like something a 5-year-old would order. I've already eaten 4 of the chocolate covered raisins. Eeek! Someone take this away or remove my sweet tooth immediately. (I'd better not say that too loudly. We once had an employee who pulled her tooth with a pair of pliers at work. Ugh!)

When I got to work this morning, one of my co-workers gave me a $25 Logan's Roadhouse gift certificate just because. He found them at his house. Not a bad way to start off the morning!

And I have to tell you about Knox this morning. I literally had to drag him out of the bed this morning. He was looking at me like, "Woman, don't you know that I am sleeping". This happens a lot. But, Fred and I took him in the den, placed him on the couch and wrapped a blanket on top of him. He was asleep within a minute. Must be nice to sleep while your mom and dad head off to work.

I am so happy that it's Friday! We're celebrating my mom's birthday tonight since she and my dad will be in Miami on her real birthday. Lucky!

I have to get caught up on my Tivo this weekend. It's 85% full. Oops!

Happy Friday!

Yeah, I lost 3lbs too. So funny. We can race to 10, LOL kidding.

Bella is the same way in the morning. I turn the bedroom light on and she gives us death glare like 'woman I'm sleeping!'

I wish I liked yogurt! I want to like it, but i just dont like the texture. bummer. I dont like milk either, so I have to take calcium supplements.
AND CONGRATS on the 3 pounds. That is AWESOME! :)
