My Birthday Eve!!

Today...even though it's Monday, I am feeling Fantastic! I feel like I really had a great weekend and made some really healthy choices. My pants even feel a little bigger this morning! I think I'm planning on a little shopping trip this Saturday so we'll see how those size 9/10 fit! I wish that all stores had universal sizing! It's so one store I could be a 9/10 easily but next door I could be a 10/12. (I avoid these stores at all cost, I know it's just a number but still...)

So last night hubby and I went out and bought a George Foreman Grill I am so excited to use it. I'm going to grill up some chicken tonight to make a chicken wrap for tomorrow's lunch. So bring on the Grill recipes please!!!! Everyone who has one swears by it and it takes out all of the fat and grease. I think that wraps would be great in it too...make them crunchy and warm. So who's got one and what do you use it for?!?!

Tomorrow is the big BIRTHDAY!!! I am planning on staying on track but I also will not let a birthday go by where I don't blow out a candle. I don't have anything planned as of yet and hubby is being VERY secretive about what is going on tomorrow night so we'll see. Besides, birthday cake is 0 points as long as it has your name on it right?!?!?

Today's Menu...

1 WW English Muffin - 1
1 Tbsp of low fat Cream Cheese - 0.5
1 tsp of Sugar Free Smucker's Jam - 0.5

  1. I think your own birthday cake works out to about -7 points. Depends on the cake really :) It only happens once a year, so enjoy it and then start to focus on your goals again. You will see nice results.


  2. Great on the Foreman grill.. I have one.. and I use quite a bit! Grilled veggies are so easy..Zucchini..asparagus.. are very good! (add a little lemon juice)I can't believe you are 24.. just seems like yesterday... you had those adorable pigtails!!!!

  3. Happy Birthday, again!!!!

    Have a wonderful day.

  5. Happy Birthday Carolyn :)

    Love Scott

  6. Happy Birthday!

    One tip I have for your grill, watch out for anything with a sweeter sauce, like if you want to make grilled chicken with bbq sauce, the sweet sauces can burn really easily if you aren't careful.

  7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROLYN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.

    Have a great day, sweetheart!!
