I work this weekend and the next 5 days. Yep 7 days in a row. That will not stop my workout or meal plan. It’s a beautiful day outside so I decided to cook meals for the week on the grill. I only plan to do major cooking once this week. I love my grill. Its big and has gas. I’m grilling not barbecuing all you charcoal fanatics. You can do so much on the grill. I have a pizza, sweet potatoes, chicken and pork tenderloin on the grill now. I will do veggies when I have some room. Having a huge Samsung fridge makes it easy to cook for the week. I can store anything. Now time for me to chill in my backyard with my Kombucha and the grill. How do you get your grill on?

WIAW : What I ate Wednesday

  1. WIAW. I saw this on a few post in the food section so I thought it would be cool to share what I eat today. MMm this will be interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever shared a whole day’s menu. It usually just between me and myself and myfitnesspal.com. I don’t do the public display of my food log. That would probably be a good thing. So let’s get started. This menu was planned last night. I try to plan and get my lunch packed the night before. This keeps me from rushing out the door.

Summertime is bad for weightloss

Its Memorial Day  which means summer has begun. Most people pack on the pounds in the winter. I tend to pack them on in the summer. In the summer you get to exercise more. For me I get to party more. It seems every weekend is a party or a barbecue. If not barbecue it’s vacation. It’s hard to keep up with exercise and a challenge to eat healthy. Chips, dips, alcohol. I know there are lots of healthy choices but it’s hard! I bring my snack but a some point the mindless snacking that comes with social events kicks in! I’m not hungry. My husband says I’m bored. I don’t have an attention span for idle chatter. He plays dominoes at these events. The women sit around talk and eat. I will have to figure out my place because I spend too much time at these events not too.  I will have to plan better for the day. make sure I get my exercise in for the day, I have also started to avoid hard alcohol. It just takes to long to recover. My strategy for today is to bring my wine. Bring a healthy dish like the veggie tray and chew gum;) maybe I’ll blog, but I get accused of being anti social. That’s because I am!!!
