We also played a game of disc gold today which ROCKED! It was such a beautiful day! Life is just so much more enjoyable while working toward a goal. :)
Tomorrow is my long day at school (930am - 740pm) as well as another long day for JT, so we've got a few challenges but we'll be ok. (we'll pack a healthy lunch and snacks.)
Dinner tonight was pretty good and quite easy to make (something I may be able to do in the future to give JT a break from cooking - for those of you who know me this is proof this recipe is VERY easy!)
Grill Chicken Breast with Avocado Corn Salsa
- 1 ear corn, roasted
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
Cut the kernels off the cob and mix together with all the remaining ingredients. Keep covered and refrigerated.
The recipe for salsa should not be made a day in advance, as the avocado will turn brown.
Preheat grill or broiler.
Season chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper. Brush with lemon juice. Grill 10 to 15 minutes total on a hot grill, turning 3 times. Serve with Avocado Corn Salsa.
I totally forgot to take my measurements yet this week so I will do that tomorrow at some point so I can track that progress along with everything else. From past weight loss adventures I know sometimes you lose inches before weight :) So I definitely need something tangible like that to look for. I think that is the main difference between men and women. I absolutely need to see results to feel like what I am doing is worthwhile. (Usually) For the first time with this journey though, how I FEEL is reward enough to know I should continue on this path. I'd still like the measurements though, just in case I have a down day!
This blog has been such an outlet. When I am getting ready to make decisions I know I have all of you to answer to and it really motivates me to make the right ones. Thank you so much for your support! See you tomorrow!
