Week 50 Monday (12/22/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Sausage, Potato, and Kale Soup        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This soup sounds interesting, because I love sausage. I also love potato soup so the two of them together should be great. The kale, of course, makes this a definite no for me. This soup has a lot of kale, and I hoped it would have a creamy base, but it is not creamy at all. Of course, that probably makes it a healthier soup. Enjoy everyone!

Why Weight?

       My goal for the next two weeks is to stay within five pounds of my lowest weight loss so far. I selected five pounds because I have heard that number always used about holiday gains. The real reason I selected five is because I think I can lose that within two weeks of counting and exercising. 

Wants and Wishes

This is my first official day of vacation, and I am filling it up with tasks. I am enjoying spending the time with the girls and being able to relax.

          I wish everyone who reads this blog, a magical, memorable Christmas Week.
