Fridays weigh in was….drum roll please…..189.3!!!!!! Mega whooo hoooos happening that morning and then I started questioning it and of course questioned my husband if he rigged the scale……after he gave me the your crazy look he denied having anything to do with the wonderful number on the scale its just been so long since I saw that eight I was terrified it wasnt real soooo when my son woke up I told him to weigh himself..you see he is trying to gain weight for football so he knows exactly what he weighs well the scale for him showed two pounds gained…omg its true all my diligence and working out is really paying off and I am thrilled!!! This just makes me even stronger in my resolve and even more committed to my goals.
My new lower number on the scale was the best birthday present ever and I am proud to say that instead of having a free for all weekend I enjoyed my birthday dinner but didnt overdue and I worked out every day….tonight I made a Zucchini casserole for my daughter and myself and baked ziti for the boys….
This is the recipe for the zucchini, its from skinnytaste which is a great spot for fantastic recipes, this is the link: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2008/07/zucchini-casserole-25-pts.html
A great recipe for zucchini lovers! Makes a great side dish. I am always looking for great recipes for zucchini since I have so many in my garden. I used one large zucchini to make this recipe. It is best to use a 9 x 12 casserole dish.
