Raise your hands if you are addicted to Pinterest!  Thumbs up  So much stuff on there its kind of ridiculous.  I’ve had this pin of detox water pinned for a while.  I mean what’s the point of having a pin if you don’t use it? (which reminds me I should meal plan off my recipe board!).

detox water

I made it the night before, and drank two large glasses before going to work.  I had planned on bringing it to work, but I forgot it, but I drank more last night, and I am on my third glass of water and it isn’t even 7:30 in the morning yet.  It is so light and refreshing, just a hint of mint.  The star is actually the cucumber – I’ve never had cucumber water before but this is going to be my summer drinking water for sure.  Have you ever had cucumber water before?

Breakfast was an egg white breakfast panini.  2 ounces of my bread, 1/2 cup of cooked egg whites, 1 ounce of deli roast beef, a slice of sharp cheddar and a handful of . . . cilantro.  My office knives suck ass (need to buy a couple good ones to keep there), so the presentation isn’t the prettiest.

One of my co-workers is a cilantro fanatic.  He told me that he makes english muffin egg sammies with cilantro, and I have to admit, cilantro and eggs go really well together!  (Jenn, look away from the cilantro! – go check Jenn out – she’s lost 40 pounds and is on her way to becoming a certified personal trainer – totally inspiring!)

So I had my quarterly diabetes appointment yesterday.  Ahem, well, I guess I somehow missed my January appointment because the last time I went was in September.  According to their records, I was up 7 pounds since September.  Granted a lot of that could be what I wore then vs. what I wore yesterday, but still. 

It’s time to get my game face on people.  My next appointment is in September, and my goal is to lose 20 pounds by then.  It’s only 5 pounds a month.  Maybe if I put down a couple glasses of wine and be more selective with my cheese eating habits, I’ll get there.

Louise and I are going to challenge each other this month.  She rides her exercise bike.  I plan on moving 100 miles this month, whether it be running, walking biking or swimming.  Does anyone else want to jump on the challenge wagon??  Just leave me a comment of what your May goal is, and I’ll keep tabs on you throughout the month for support and cheerleading!

Let’s make it fun . . .for everyone who completes their goal, you’ll be put in a drawing for a case of my grilled fruit salsa!  A mix of cherry, pineapple and my traditional baja fresh salsa – made to your heat level.

Lunch was leftover chicken fried rice, and on the side was three mini eggrolls.  There is a Japanese grocery store next to my doctors office, so I stopped in for a few minutes.  I’ll have to take a picture of the box, because the egg rolls were really good – just 10 minutes in the toaster oven and 3 were 98 calories!

I got home from work and Tony was enjoying a cigar.  We sat outside chatting for a while when our neighbor came over to hang out.  Out came the wine and we ended up sitting outside for an hour and a half!  Pinot Grigio is our summer wine. Open-mouthed smile

I didn’t start cooking dinner until nearly 7:30.  It was quick and simple though – steak, corn on the cob and grilled zucchini.  We enjoyed sitting on our front deck and grilled on the gas grill.  So nice outside last night!

We left all our windows open last night and when I walked out of the bedroom I got instantly frozen – it is only 42 degrees this morning!  But the sun is shining, I’ve got wonton quiches in the oven (recipe will be posted tomorrow) and I’ve got my game face on.

Make it a great day!
