My friend Kim gets this for her family all the time and she swears by it, so I thought I would give it a try. Soooo glad I did. For one, the small is only $18 (feeds up to 4) and I PROMISE you I could not have gone into Publix and JUST spent only $18.. Plus, I have leftovers.
Now, I couldn't leave without getting some of the loaded Chicken Salad---also soooo good. My mom makes the best chicken salad, but Mac refuses to share it--so I never get any of that.
If you're bored with what you've been fixing, stop by Kay's or visit her site at Home Plate Cooking to see her menu and daily specials for a change up. When I was stressed to the max during the water damage, I tried one of her desserts---it was like a Reese Cup pudding---it should be illegal.. I'm proud to say as much as I wanted it tonight, I didn't get it... My point is the desserts are the bomb too.
I hope everyone had a great day and your dinner was as good as mine!!!

The book I'm reading now is really good. It's call the The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler. It's about the Secret Service that served with the President, their families and other members of the cabinet. Not just current but past ones too. It's really interesting. Let's you know they are normal and crazy too!! And a little freaky at times!
The book has had mixed reviews, obviously. From statements released saying it is complete nonsense, to doubting where the information came from. I, however, have found it very interesting and am about half way through with it..
Click on the title above and check it out for yourself...

I'm currently sitting here typing this with ice on my knee because I have a torn meniscus in my right knee. It has been hurting me for a while so I finally broke down and went to the orthopedist and found out what in the world was going on. I'm glad to finally know, but to also know I pretty much brought this on myself---sucks. And how did I do that---by gaining weight. I haven't gained much, but this legs aren't getting any younger and just 10 pounds of weight is like 80 pounds on your knees. So, I've got to get at least 25 pounds off to really make my knees happy.. I knew this and the doctor said so as well, but I had to pay a co-pay to here him say it..
So, since walking is out now, my choices are a stationary bike or water aerobics. Mac said he liked the bike so he is going to start going with me to the gym and ride. I'm excited about that. And we're starting tomorrow! I've iced it and medicated it all weekend so now it's time to get moving and get the weight off. Going to add in some time with the trainer we've been using as well for some other work out ideas.
I can do this, and really have no other choice. My blood sugar also took a nose dive and is all out of whack---so no more excuses or laziness. My health comes first from now on... Keep me in your prayers and feel free to shoot me some motivation from time to time!! And I promise not to stay away as long in the future.
Who know's maybe I will do a before and after picture!!

Just wanted to share a great quote I heard today from a guest pastor at our church... God already has the solution before you even know it's a problem... I love that. Truly hit home with me.. If I can just learn to take care of myself and my family, God will handle the rest...
Be blessed everyone...

Well I've been away for some time now... So sorry friends. I've gotten so wrapped up in learning my new job that I have truly been neglecting myself. And in many areas. From how clean my house used to be, to the weight I've gained by using excuses. So change is around the corner!! I'm on my last training meeting out of town and I promised myself that change is coming when I get back home!! Starting with clean eating and exercising. Junk and pointless calories spent on wine, ritas and just crap, well they are going away for a while too.. It's time to get my groove back!! Live as happy as I'm feeling!!..
Stay tuned in and enjoy the ride with me this summer!!!

Over a month!! I'm so sorry friends!! I have been so busy the past three months that I did very little "computer fun" things at all. I had to stay focused. And it all paid off.. Starting March 24th, I will be working with Alfa Insurance in Pelham (not with my brother).... I'm so excited and so ready for a change. I have enjoyed working at UAB, but it's just time to move on.
I also can't wait to get back into a workout routine. I let all that go when I was studying for my state exam. I felt guilty if I wasn't studying!!! So my plan is to start back going to Gold's after I get off work at 5. It's right down the street so NO EXCUSES!! Then, when I get Mac up in the mornings, I plan to do Cardio Barre... Can't wait to start that program. Now that I have to wear real clothes---this body has got to change!! Cause I want some cute clothes and shoes!!!

Also while he was here, we got another sweet baby to add to our family... A Yorkshire Terrier named Oscar! My heart screams love for him!! Not to mention when him and Mya are laying together--I'm in Heaven!! I promise pictures are coming!! He is spending the day today with Aunt Marci and my nieces--I'm sure he will be pooped tonight!!
Did you make New Year's Resolutions?? I'm going to try to stick to two this year.. One, continue to get healthy and workout the most I can. Two, stick with the 52 Week Money Challenge. If I can stick with this, I will have over $1378 at the end of this year!! So what I think I'm going to do is make a money jar that once I drop the money in, I can't get into it unless I break the jar. And I'm going to bling out that jar so I don't break it! Anyone else doing it with me? The computer I'm on won't copy a link--but just go to 52 Week Money Challenge and you will find tons of printable copies. There is also a Facebook page!!
I'll post some pictures of Oscar soon!!!
