So I do this little trick sometimes to get more water in.  I found this on the Weight Watchers boards when I was doing the program.  You get a pitcher and fill it halfway with ice, put two tea bags in and then fill the rest with ice. Pour water until it fills the top of the pitcher and then wait.  In about an hour or so, you have water with a slight flavor.  I need to drink more water and plan to get some after this post.


Also, make sure to set a kitchen towel underneath because it sweats a lot!

I was getting hungry and it was still a few hours until dinner so I had an apple with super chunky pb and a cup of chocolate soy milk (can’t help it I’m addicted!) and I read a little of this book.  It is a book on different uses for the things already in your home such as cleaners, stuff to get gum out of hair, how to get blood out of clothes with Coca Cola, etc.  It’s pretty neat and was on sale at Barnes and NobleDSC_0146

DSC_0147I marinated these turkey burgers (the ground turkey was from Aldi) for about 10 minutes with a little salt and pepper.DSC_0150

DSC_0152DSC_0153DSC_0154We grilled them and then grilled the pineapple towards the end.  I served it with pineapple slices on the side and one on the actual burger with a whole wheat bun from the Harris Teeter. My camera just died so it will be charging for a while. 

Brandon sprayed some grub worm killer in our yard tonight because they are out in full force and are nasty.  Their disgusting guts are all in our garage.  Hopefully this will do the trick.  I am going to shower and watch tv/maybe read/probably play on the computer more.  Have a good night!

Monday wish it was Sunday

Back to the grind.

This morning started off with a Clif Chocolate Brownie granola bar and a banana.  It was good until close to the end and it got to be a little too much chocolate.  The banana was delicious. I have started to buy my bananas on Sundays now because when I bought them on Fridays they went bad by the next Friday.  So Sunday-Friday is a good plan.  I will just plan to do my grocery shopping on Sundays now instead of going once on Friday and then back for bananas on Sunday.

Anywho, my stitches are healing nicely, but the itching that comes with the healing process has started. ugh.  It’s like when you have chicken pox and you can only scratch the area around because you don’t want to leave a scar.  I really wanna be like this guy: http://manginamonologues.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/bear-scratching.jpg

For lunch I had:

  • light string cheese
  • leftover Olive Garden
  • Oikos yogurt with honey on the bottom mmmmmmm!
  • 100 calorie pack of cheese and crackers

Tonight was good ole hamburgers on the grill, with 93/7 lean ground beef bought at the Teeter.  I put a little chili sauce, garlic salt, garlic powder, s & p, and chili powder. 



The grill master! hahah


Served with TJ’s wedge potatoes. These are the best fries if you are watching your weight and don’t want a lot of grease!!! MMM!  We are about out of ketchup and that is one thing I cannot live without!!

We might eat a popsicle later.  I am trying to go light on desserts since we went out for icecream Sunday night after Olive Garden. Ugh! I feel like a fatty.  Gotta eat better this week. 

Off to hang out with my hubby and this cutie:
