Weight 171 (yep, I am up!)
I did weigh myself on Thursday before our family camping trip to Jelly Stone Park and I was 167, but since I failed to post it, I am stuck with today's weight. I am sure that you noticed I had a good time, and I ate all that I want. I am going to have to work hard this week to take off those added pounds and get back into shape. Yuck! I hope that those of you out there that are trying to eat and live better are doing better than me.

Okay, so I love my Crock Pot. Nothing is easier than putting a few ingredients together in the morning and by dinner time you have a whole meal ready.
I found a website on Pinterest where you can find 5 crock pot meals that are doubled at a time with the shopping list. Wow! Nothing could be easier, right? The website name is Six Cents at http://www.six-cents.com/2012/06/crockpot-freezer-cooking-101.html. Aimee talks about how much money and time you spend when you go ahead and make double recopies at the same time. So, today I made 3 of her recipes and doubled them, so now I have 6 Freezer Crock Pot meals in my freezer (well, on 5 because I am cooking one now). It only took me about 30 minutes to prepare the six meals. I did not try the Curry Chicken because curry is a “Hard Limit” at my house. I did buy all the ingredients for the Pepper Steak, but had to put the meat in the freezer before I had time to prepare it. No problem because I will just make the double batch and freeze half of it after cooking so I just have to reheat it. I will update how the meals taste as we eat them. I personally am excited to have several meals done in so little time! Check out Aimee’s website to see more meals!

Weight: 168 :)
Wow! Finally back on the losing trend. Hopefully I can keep it up over the weekend. Weekends are hard because we live in a great neighborhood where we all like to get together and eat and drink. All the bad things when you are dieting! I just have to tell myself that I can be strong! Yeh, right! We all know how hard it is for me to stay on the wagon. Wish me luck!
On another front, I am now running and walking!
Happy Friday the 13th!

I don’t know about you, but I am always on the hunt for an easy crock-pot recipe. I especially like the ones that are also somewhat healthy. I found the crock-pot buffalo chicken lettuce wrap recipe on Pinterest and thought that it looked pretty good and I should give it a try. Wow! This one was a crowd pleaser! Different that some of my usual’s this recipe was and very tasty. If you like buffalo chicken then this is a good recipe for you. I hope that you enjoy!

I am bummed, because I am still 2 pounds up. I had a good start to the 4th holiday but I still gave in and enjoyed all the good food. It might have helped if I had worked out, but I was not feeling good on top of eating what I wanted, when I wanted. Needless to say I am going to have to really try hard this week. I really hope that by the end of this week I have some good news!
