I am titling this post with a phrase that my friend Donna uses a lot – – have to keep it moving! I haven’t posted in several days – – bad me. Sometimes life gets in the way of living, if you know what I mean. But I am still sticking with the diet although I have decided not to weigh in every day, or at least post my weight daily. My friend Megan suggested that perhaps I should weigh myself weekly and that will probably suit me better since my weight has been all over the board. Honestly, lose a pound one day, gain a pound, lose almost three pounds, gain two back. It’s bizarre.
As much as I dislike grocery shopping in general, Saturday was not terribly bad for me – – despite getting a late start and hitting the road at the absolute hottest part of the day. What was I thinking? Anyhow, no cookies or sugary treats managed to find their way into my cart. I did, however, grab a box of Skinny Cow ice cream because hey, a girl’s gotta have something. (I did rationalize this because Skinny Cow is fat free and if I’m going to give up Dr. Pepper and Mr. Pibb, I need my ice cream.) The produce department with the vegetables and fresh herbs eyed me warily because, frankly, we’ve never been properly introduced before. I even bought some fresh fish (tilapia) and the plan is to have that tonight for dinner.
I made an amazing spaghetti sauce from scratch on Sunday. DE-licious doesn’t begin to cover it. I am going to post the recipe, taken from Sherry Brescia’s cookbook, under a separate post if you are game to try it. Not only does it taste (and smell) wonderful but it’s full of natural ingredients and is healthy to boot.
I have created a new page for this site for recipes and I hope to post some good ones. If you have one – – or more than one! – – please feel free to share it with me. There is no such thing as too many good recipes.
I hope everyone is enjoying these last days of August and summer. Fall (and the new t.v. season) is right around the corner. Is anyone watching Hotel Hell? I caught an episode this past Monday because I love Gordon Ramsey. Strange, I know, but I love his ballsy personality and his accent is to die for. I used to watch Hotel Inspector off BBC America and loved it. I wish it was still on. I do catch Hotel Impossible on the Travel Network. I enjoy it. And no, I do not work in the hotel or hospitality industry but am obviously fascinated by shows that deal with them. I love Tabatha Coffey’s reality show on Bravo. When does that come back on? I also DVR’d Copper, a new show on BBC America. Is anyone watching? It takes place in New York in 1864. It’s very dark and dirty and gritty and so far, I’m hooked. I definitely get drawn into shows easily – – one episode and I’m looking to set the season pass on the DVR. And of course Grimm. I love Grimm. I love Monroe from Grimm. I haven’t watched Monday’s episode yet. Hubby had overnight duty last night so we should be watching tonight. I’m sure it’s a good one!
Have a fantastic day!
