Mmmmm, I'm glad it's Friday. I haven't posted for a whole week. I've thought about it a couple of times, but it felt like a burden. I decided that I don't want to talk about food anymore. I will discuss recipes and such, but not, "oh, I ate this bad thing". So, if that is the kind of blog you're looking for, this won't be it.

I haven't been running much this past week - my knees were SO sore. I also ended up with shin splints one day. I decided that I had put off getting new shoes long enough. So, off I went. I'm really happy with the service I got at the store. And no, I didn't go to the Running Room. I ended up with Nike shoes. They not only feel like a little piece of heaven on my feet, but they are pretty.

I met with my personal trainer yesterday. Another great workout. I'm really surprised at how much I enjoy it. $$ well spent I think. My next step is to concentrate on going one other time on my own. I haven't done that. Why do I feel so intimidated at the thought of doing that?

So, about my new recipe book. OMG!!! We have had 4 recipes so far, and my family has loved them all! I'm not going to re-type them all, cause I'm lazy, but if you e-mail me ( I will happily send you a pdf of the recipe. But, seriously, the joy of this book is in the grocery list that comes with it for each week. Friggen genious!

The recipes tried so far are:
  • Sweet & Tangy Chicken with Rice and California Veggies
  • Beef Enchilada Casserole with Tomato-Avocado Salad (daughter loved, loved, loved the salad)
  • Teriyaki Chicken Toss with Spaghettini Pasta
  • Lean Meatballs in Mushroom Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Veggies.

Tonight we eat the last of the 1st week of recipes: Glazed Pork Chops with Rice & Baby Carrots. I can't wait for that one.

Each recipe is for 4-6 people, so we've had left overs from every meal, which I've frozen for lunches in the next week. All of the recipes are easy-peasy.

My puppy got his schnauzer cut this week. He looks so different, and still so cute! Today, at doggy daycare they are having Santa come in for pictures. He is, of course, going to have his done. Husband informed me today that we've turned into "dog people" - all I will say is that I have resisted the urge to buy him little dress up clothes!

Have a healthy day bloggers!
