I love it!

I miss my BLOG!!

next week is spring break, which means I will have some time to get things accomplished, including some interesting posts!

One semi-interesting project going on in my life is that I'm trying to lose 6 pounds by my birthday (may 1st)! That way I would be in a lower decade!! I'm optimistic, and have been really watching what I'm eating! I feel great, and i love it!

Today, for example, I had a chocolate peanut butter protein shake for breakfast, it filled me up so well!

ingredients for protein shake: 1 cup nonfat milk, 3 cups spinach, 1 to 2 servings chocolate protein powder, 4 tbsps sugar free chocolate syrup, 1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter...yum! Next time I'll try to remember adding flax meal! Plus the added spinach has no taste, so you can just feel great that it is in there!! I love it!

A Copycat version of Wendy's Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

My salad included Spring mix lettuce, Craisins, blue cheese, raspberry vinaigrette, grilled chicken breast (gotta love the George Foreman!).
Plus a slice of homemade whole wheat bread! Did I tell you I got a bread machine? I've been using it soo much! I love it, best appliance in my kitchen!

For dinner I'll be having some savory oats! Have you ever tried oats with cheese and veggies? You should, I love it! Mix up some oats with milk,an egg, cheese, and seasoning, add veggies, microwave and yum yum! Lottsa protein, whole grains, veggie power, etc!!

I got that picture from one of my favorite bloggers, Caitlin. , I look at her blog everyday, I love it!

Talk to you guys sooner rather than later I hope!

the milkshake thing is so interesting! it's crazy that the spinach has no effect on the taste, but I have heard that before I think.

I really wanted to get a bread machine...even if chad wouldn't eat any of it, I would. Bread is my favorite food..how terrible! haha
