Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things TC is thinking about today
  1. I need to find some lean cuts of beef to integrate into my diet
  2. I need to buy some ground turkey or chicken
  3. I need to remember this is a lifestyle change not a temporary change and unless I plan on eating chicken every day for the rest of my life, I need to get some variety.
  4. I need to remember that my health needs to come first, if I am sick then I shouldn't feel guilty about not exercising, I am not being lazy, I am getting better
  5. I wish it would stop raining and get sunny. I really don't like dreary dull days like this.
  6. I need to get my butt in gear and get the spare room ready for my best friend who is coming to visit today.
  7. I am thrilled she is coming. She has lost 70 lbs and I am so amazed by her.
  8. She is struggling right now with motivation to continue and not lose her way. I would like to help her with that while she is here
  9. I would like to come up with some fun diet recipes to share with her while she is here. Some things to give her ideas.
  10. Maybe in motivating her, I can motivate me too.
  11. I hope I get better before she leaves. I have a guest pass to my gym and I would love to bring her one day so she can check it out.
  12. I wonder what effect caffiene has on my weight loss, I know I drink entirely too much coffee. I mean really too much. I drink about 1 to 1 1/2 pots of coffee a day. All by myself.
  13. I am grateful that I have my blog friends to help me keep on track. You guys Rock! thank you.

i have heard that caffeine isn't a good thing for dieters. I can't cut it out of my diet, though I totally understand.

You can't do everything right. You're doing your best and it's going well. Keep it up. :-)
My TT is about online books/cd/dvd stores.

You're doing great, keep it up! It's definitely a lifestyle change, just keep working at it and remember you can't be perfect every day.

Hope you and your friend have a great visit :)

Not sure if you have tired this recipe before, but since you mentioned that you wanted something other then chicken, go to and look up the recipe for Juan Carlos Turkey Saugage Chili, i never use the saugage, I substitue ground beef. It is super yummy and really low cal. Just two points, one drain the excess liquid from the beef and use extra onions, also the long you let it simmer the better it tastes. I have a couple of other good recipes so email me anytime.

That sounds wonderful. We were discussing maybe chili tonight so I am going to check out that recipe.

Any other recipes you have that you love, I would love to have. I love trying new recipes.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
