Back from Vacation Weigh-In 7/13/14

I weighed myself once on vacation and I had gained a pound. I didn't even stay on my diet. I didn't eat as much as I use to because my stomach has shrunk some.  I weighed myself this morning and I'm down 4.8 pounds since I weighed myself on the 3rd of July. So I'm still on track amazingly.   27.2 pounds lost!!!

Weigh-in for 6/26/14

I lost 3.1 pounds this week. Almost 24 pounds lost. :clapping: Why is it that I can't tell though? I mean my pants aren't tight anymore and they are a little loose now. I haven't changed a clothing size yet though. :erm: Ugh! My own fault for getting this overweight. 
And I still haven't started exercising. Any suggestions on something fun I can do at home? :hmm:

Weigh-In for 6/19/14

I lost 2.6 pounds this week. I think some of that was from the Augmentin I've been taking.  Glad I finished the last pill today. Stupid antibiotic gave me loose stools. :-/  Anyway I still haven't started exercising. I just can't get motivated in that regard. *sigh* I think I need to find something that's fun but I can do by myself.  Any suggestions?  That's all for now. Maybe I'll think of more to say in later blog posts.

Garlic-Lime Chicken

I've made this recipe before and I loved it. I made it again last night and loved it even more.  I did double the seasonings that go on the chicken. That is reflected in the nutritional information but not in the recipe itself.

Garlic-Lime Chicken
from Random Anderson
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice
1. In a small bowl, mix together salt, black pepper, cayenne, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken breasts.
2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons garlic powder and lime juice. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce.

    Weigh-Ins for 6/5/14 AND 6/12/14

    Sorry I didn't post last week. I've been sick with a sinus infection. Anyway I didn't quit lose 2 last week or this week. Anyhow all together I've lost 18 pounds now.   I need to get off my butt and exercise. I haven't had any energy this week because I am sick. I need to lose some inches in my butt, tummy, thighs, etc.
    I also need to start making the recipes I collected last month.  I've been eating good but nothing I made myself besides salads. So my goals this week are to start exercising daily (1 mile on the treadmill for now) and cook low carb recipes.

    Thursday Weigh In for 5/22/14

    I lost a pound according to the scales. I was hoping for 2 but I can't forget I'm 41 years old now. It's not going to come off as easy as it use to come off. That's 11 pounds in 3 weeks! Anyway I need to start exercising. I did walk 1 mile on the treadmill on Monday. I meant to do it Tuesday and Wednesday but put it off. I guess my immediate goal right now is to make myself start walking a mile every day. Once that gets easy then I'll start finding other exercises to do along with it.
