Week 31 Monday (8/11/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Migas
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         In Argentina, the miga is a type of light sandwich with typically ham and cheese. Ree’s migas use tortillas with breakfast fillings. I do think they look interesting but for some reason they just don’t call to me. I like everything in them but the tomatoes but I passed anyway. I hope you enjoy them.

Random Reflections - Bucket List

         I miss my Florida/Alabama friends and need to make it a priority to return to the South. As much as I dislike the weather and humidity, I adore the people and friends I left behind. I promised Kathy and Turk that the first trip I make after retiring will be to visit them in Alabama, and I will definitely keep that promise.

Goal:             78.1 lbs.         (100 lb. loss between 6/1/14 – 6/1/15)
                  -    6.6 lbs.         this week’s loss
                     71.5  lbs.        to go

         Wow! Two amazing weeks in a row. I lost 7.4 pounds last week and 6.6 pounds this week for a total of 14.0 pounds in two weeks.  I know it won’t last, but I am pretty darn happy right now.  Okay, only 71.5 lbs to go before next June.

Sun.                    8/3                 3,777 steps              2,391 calories burned
Mon.                   8/4               10,517 steps              2,982 calories burned
Tues.                   8/5                7,039 steps               2,771 calories burned
Wed.`                  8/6                8,516 steps               2,866 calories burned
Thurs.                 8/7               12,963 steps               3,184 calories burned

Sat.                     8/10                5,286 steps               2,509 calories burned

         A big bummer in the step department. Instead of getting at least three days of 10,000 steps, I only had two days over 10,000. Maybe next week will be better.

Wants and Wishes

         I am so frustrated with the Illinois political powers. One party is not better than the other in this state. I have never been a particularly political person, but I know that the Illinois government continues to have politicians that are only out for themselves.  I wish that we had some honest people who think of the state and its people and their needs first.
