Nummy Num....

That's how I describe my dinner last night, and tonight dinner too! Stir Fry! It was soo good and easy peasy to make! I don't like any meat in it (shrimp, chicken...etc..) so it's just a veggie stir fry, but was it ever tasty! Basically you just chop up as many vegetables that you like, and saute them, stir in some low calorie stir fry sauce and serve over brown rice. I didn't blog this weekend because I was embarrassed! Randy went hunting for 4 days, so while he was gone I got Reegan and I Triple O's for dinner. That entailed a hamburger and onion rings for me! The first really bad thing I've had in 5 weeks. I had been craving it every single day since I started this diet, and I finally caved. When I used to get the exact same meal I would eat the whole thing with no problem, and could still eat more afterwards. This time, I could barely finish it! I was soo full! And guess what?!? It wasn't worth it. It wasn't nearly as good as I remembered, and I felt yucky afterwards. Not to mention the waste of money that it was! Seriously, for me and Reegan our bill was $13. I could have bought a cute new top for that price! What a disappointment! So, back to the stir fry. Not only is it cheap, it is very healthy and I felt great afterwards. I am making Randy baked mac and cheese for dinner (one of my favourites) so I better get to choppin' on my veggies and make my stir fry before the mac and cheese starts calling my name!

Oh, one more thing....the 5k race I signed up for is coming up! Like really really soon...Saturday to be exact. As in 5 days away! I'm freaking out. I don't know what I'm so worried about. I know it isn't going to kill me. I just really hope I can do the whole thing without walking. Eeeek!


  1. You can do it Laura! I think the whole energy of being at the race will keep you motivated. Let's just hope for nice weather- that always helps. I am certain you are going to be so stinkin' proud of yourself after. And brag away!
    Hey, your stir-fry would probably be good wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla, too!

  2. Thanks Frances! I think it's supposed to rain on Saturday, but that's ok, I have a rain cover for the stroller, and that's all that matters! I think the stir fry would be really good in a wrap! Thanks for the tip!!

  3. You can do the 5K - easy peasy! I'm glad you stopped by my blog so I can see what you are up to!

    I find it so interesting when I read about people's experiences with food they used to love, but when they've been away from for a while and eat them again, find they don't love them anymore! YAY to healthy food winning the wars.

    I have a problem stir frying because my stove top just doesn't get very hot! Maybe I need a wok.
