I forgot to post this picture yesterday from our drive home from seeing Toy Story 3.  I thought my friend Beth would enjoy it – turns out we can’t get enough cloud or sunset pics! 😀

Breakfast was delicious – I have South Beach Steve to thank for the idea of adding basil to my scrambled eggs – so good!

Lunch was another addition of “throw shit in a bag!”  Are you getting tired of that yet?  I brought a cajun sausage that I was going to wrap like a hot dog, but when I pulled it out at work it was all slimey.  🙁  I look at the package and the sell by date was May!  I know I have cleaned out my refrigerator since May!

So with my pantry/fridge/bag items, I ended up making an edamame, corn and spinach quesadilla, with cucumbers and ranch and 1/2 cup white rice with a tablespoon of Trader Joe’s thai curry sauce – eclectic?  Yes!  Filling?  Absolutely!

I had taco fiesta on the brain, and decided on fish tacos – only I cheat a bit!

extra crunchy fish sticks! 😀

I bring all the fixins to the table:

It was another stormy night . . . just above and below us!  There were tornado warnings, my mom’s town got 3 inches of rain in one hour – even the Eisenhower expressway was closed because of flooding.  My mom lives right next to the expressway and when she saw no cars on it, she thought it looked like the end of the world!

We heard thunder, had a little bit of rain, but that was it.  After dinner the sky was so beautiful!

I want to thank everyone who stopped by Al and Charlie’s blogs yesterday – what a great group of cheerleaders we have!  I put all your names in a hat (twice if you left a comment on each!).  And the winner of a copy of my brother’s book is . . .

Congrats to Debbi!  Send me an email at bdl319@gmail.com with your address and I’ll get it out to you! 😀

Alright, we need to cheer on a couple more 101 days of summer challengers that are struggling a bit.

First is Buffy who is struggling to put the cheetos down!   She’s hoping to track her food better for the rest of the week – if you could pop on over and leave a comment, I would appreciate it!

Next up is Brooke.  While she’s already lost 100 pounds, she’s lost her mojo and is trying to find it – let’s help her get back on track!

For anyone who leaves a comment for Buffy or Brooke, you’ll be entered to win a copy of my eCookbook which has 25 of my favorite recipes on BDL with nutritional info!

I have another thank you – to Linzi who picked my name when I donated to her Team in Training.  Linzi is training for a marathon and is training with the Leukemia Society – she’s a ways away from her goal though!  If you can, check out her fund raising page.   She sent my a cool coffee/smoothie cup and a very sweet note – thanks Linzi!

Don’t forget BSI this week!  Last week there were only two entries!  This week’s ingredient is bulgar wheat.  I have to be honest, I’ve never even tried it before – but I have an idea of making a vegetarian chili subbing the bulgar wheat for the ground beef.  Do you think it will work?  Allison is going vegan all month – if it works out I’ll let you know!

Stats for Wednesday:

  • 15 minute AM yoga
  • 36 minute 7 mile hill climb on bike machine
  • 5 minutes abs on balance ball
  • 1,496 calories, 165 carbs, 69 protein, 69 fat and 26 fiber

Off to do 30-day shred for the 2nd time this week – have a great Thursday! 😀
