Steak and Chicken Kabobs

The night that I signed up for Weight Watchers I was hanging out at a friend’s house. She was making steak and chicken kabobs for dinner and man they were one of the best meals I had had in a while. She always cooks good food though. And she definitely eats healthier than I do. So it was no surprise that when I entered the recipe in the Weight Watchers app the point value was low.

You know what that means? I stole her dish and made it for myself! lol

WW Week 5 Cont’d

I don’t know how people come up with menus for families each and every week. It’s just me. I typically just need to prepare two meals a week. I eat one for lunch and have the other for dinner. And yet sometimes it is so difficult to figure out what I want to eat. More so when you are trying to make those meals healthy. Whereas families need to come up with 5+ meals and sometimes have to feed picky eaters. I just don’t know how they do it.

Penne w/ Pea and Spinach Pesto and Asparagus

I’ve been trying to make this meal for a couple weeks now. I started to purchase the ingredients the day my sister convinced me to not finish my grocery shopping and join her and our Mom for dinner. I’m glad that I met them, the steak was fabulous!, but it messed with my dinner plans for the week. The following week I got back on track and purchased everything that was needed. But then I never prepared the dish.

KC Sweet 16

I try to run in at least one race each year. Some years I will do quite a bit. Two years ago I ran in roughly 8 races. Some years I only run in a couple such as last year. This year I decided I would only run in the KC Sweet 16 Series. The series consisted of 4 races that were 4 miles each thus 16. As you already know, I ran in the Plaza 10K a couple of weeks ago as a favor for a friend. I’ve also registered for the first ever Longview 5K coming up in November. So my 4 race year has turned in to a 6 race year. It happens! lol
