A New Me- Happy Easter!

Yesterday's Menu

Breakfast- Yogurt probiotic drink

Lunch- Salami and cheeses

Dinner- Lettuce wrapped cheeseburger

Today's Menu

Breakfast- Skipped breakfast this morning

Lunch- 12 Spicy chicken wings

Dinner- I made Sriracha chicken thighs and roasted acorn squash. The chicken was just okay and I kinda burnt my squash, I wouldn't call dinner a total fail though because we did manage to it eat it.

As of Wednesday morning I am still only down 10 pounds! How frustrating, I will try again this week. I signed up to go to the gym with Chris yesterday now I just need to get myself there.

Today was Penelope's Easter hat parade at school, it was so cute watching the kiddos show off their hats. After the parade they performed some songs for the parents. She had a blast at school today eating Easter treats and hunting for eggs. Tomorrow we are heading to Grandma's to celebrate with family.

Chris and Penelope worked so hard on her hat and I didn't get a good photo. :(

May you all have a blessed Easter!

 I just received an email that I won Lille Punkin's Giving the Gift of Gentle Clean Giveaway. Yay for me! I won a cleaning caddy kit filled with Olay hand lotion, Swiffer Wet Jet, gloves, and Pampers Wipes. I will gift the wipes to my cousin who still has a little one in diapers and the rest will be used by me.

Have you won anything lately?

A New Me- Blackened Tilapia and Tartar Sauce

Today's Menu

Breakfast- An omelet filled with chorizo, jack cheese and jalapenos and topped with guacamole and sour cream.

Lunch- Not hungry!

Snack- I was falling asleep and needed a pick me up so I had an iced mocha. It didn't work!

Dinner- Blackened Tilapia, with broccoli, some lumpias and tartar sauce.


The lumpias were from frozen and only 10 carbs for 8 little rolls, I ate 5 because they are sooo good. Here is my simple tartar sauce recipe:

1 cup of mayonnaise
3 tbs. chopped dill pickles (Chris likes his tartar sauce pickle-y.)
1/2 tbs. onion powder
2 tbs. lemon juice
Cajun seasoning to taste

A New Me

Today's Menu

Breakfast- 1 Egg over easy, 2 strips of bacon and a strawberry

Lunch- Chris and I snacked on Porkitos and spiced Gouda cheese. What are porkitos? They are prosciutto crisps, I got the super easy recipe from my Nom Nom Paleo cookbook.


These are crispy, salty and delicious. Chris even claims they taste better then potato chips, I don't know about all that but they are a healthier substitute! We ate them like crackers with some spicy Gouda cheese. Chris says it's his new favorite snack.


Snack- Green olives

Dinner- I made chicken Caesar salads

Dessert- 1 Spicy bloody Mary. ;)
