Well, I guess I do a little, because I'm definitely making progress. Despite what we'll refer to as "the Pizza Hut Incident." Yesterday I was eating lunch with a few people I don't normally sit with, and woman says "you look like you've really dropped some pounds." To which I replied, "31, baby! PA-POW!" and accidentally spit out a piece of lettuce. Oops. But it's been really nice to have people notice. One of my friends actually told me that, not only am I looking a little smaller, but I have a "healthy glow" about me. That was a first, and completely unexpected. I mentioned it to BF and he was like "Oh my god! You do!!" And the pants I'm wearing today are pretty loose. I kept having to hitch them up on the way inside from the car.
We leave for Philadelphia on Tuesday 5/21 and I am sooo excited! That's where Charles grew up and his cousin is getting married there on Friday 5/24. I get to be away from St. Louis (and work) for a week, which should be glorious. And I love weddings!!
I made a bunch of curry chicken salad last night and it turned out so great I just had to share:
- 3 chicken breasts, cooked (I cut mine into 1-inch chunks and boiled them in water, then drained and shredded
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/3 cup (approximately) plain greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp of light mayo or miracle whip
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
If you make this, you might wanna go a little at a time with the curry powder, since that's what I did and I have no clue how much that wound up being! I'm estimating at 1/2 tsp but honestly it might have been more. The crunch from the walnuts/celery and the sweet, chewy raisins & cranberries are perfect in this.
Oh yeah, one last thing...I don't know if I can trust my scale! Yesterday it randomly said I weighed 302, which I KNOW can't be true, since I just weighed in Sunday at 311. It's an EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat scale...does anyone else have one of these, and have you had issues with it?? It also sometimes gives 2 very different consecutive weights, and it's done this since I first got it. It'll say 311, I'll step off and get right back on and it'll say 322. ????????
