Hannah had this song on her iPod (I actually almost typed eyepod!) while we were driving to lunch on Sunday.  This was the song that they played at the end of the last episode of Jon & Kate + 8.   I liked the acoustic version though.  I loved the lyrics!

This is the moment
It’s on the line
Which way you gonna fall?
In the middle between
Wrong and right
But you know after all

It’s your life
What you gonna do?
The world is watching you
Every day the choices you make
Say what you are and who
Your heart beats for
It’s an open door
It’s your life

Are you who you always said you would be?
With a sinking feeling in your chest
Always waiting for someone else to fix you
Tell me when did you forget

To live the way that you believe
This is your opportunity
To let your life be one that lights the way


I read Jen’s post yesterday.  I loved how at the end of her post she said “2010 is the Year of Jen!”  Well any long time readers will know that last year I declared 2009 as mine and since I don’t have a rhyming name like Jen, I decided that 2010 is WHEN! I know I have push myself harder to get to where I want to be.   And it’s not even a particular weight I am striving for – its to feel and be healthy so I can be around for my family.  While the weight is slow to leave, I know the RD’s and fellow diabetics will appreciate this number!

That's my 14 day average!!

How cool is that?  I think Pubsgal and Foodie will be happy with those numbers too! 😀

Breakfast was completely insulin worthy!  My friend Mel made me chocolate chip scones from Cooking Light Magazine – holy cow these were amazing Mel!!  I love scones – the first scone I ever had was at Starbucks, and it was their cinnamon chip one – I dipped this bad boy into my coffee and it was so good!  Thanks Mel!  On the side I had a kiwi and a fiber one peach yogurt.  Not a huge fan of the yogurt – I am so used to Greek yogurt that this was overly sweet – I ended up eating a few spoonfuls.

Lunch was wonton soup from the wontons I made out of leftover Chinese food!   There is no real recipe to this, I just kept throwing things into the mix:  2 cups low sodium chicken broth, broccoli, radish, dried red chilis, spinach, carrots, sliced jalapeno and 8 of the wontons.  And even though the broth looks like dirty dish water – it was nice and spicy!

the perfect bite!

Dinner was pork chops, scalloped potatoes and green beans – I was the only one who had sauerkraut – no one else in my family likes it.  I love it so much I can basically eat it out of the can!  I thought Allison would get a kick out of my seasoning for my pork chop!

Buffalo pork chops!

My pork chop weighed in at 12 ounces!  So I only at 1/3 of it, 1/2 cup scalloped potatoes, green beans, and not pictured was a cup of sauerkraut. 😀

On tap for lunch today is a vegetarian Mexican lasagna – something even Marissa can make!   The best part is that 1/4 of this casserole is only 295 calories!  You’ll have to come back tomorrow for the recipe.  Also on tap for dinner is Shrimp Scampi with homemade spinach pasta – hope it works out!  This is the finished product:


So while I struggle to make good choices, I am going to make today a good day – one day at a time.  You can’t move forward looking in the rear view mirror.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to make this amazing grilled cheese sandwich with short ribs (sans the onions!) from the cover of Bon Appetit I got in the mail yesterday!  Look at all that melty cheese! 😀
