More jalapeño pepper problems…

So it’s a summer rain down pour here in CO.  My Love is out networking for one of his businesses.  I am not doing a whole lot.  I’m pretty much useless today due to my migraine hang over.  The day after a LONG bout with a miserable, 3 day long migraine I’m dumb.  I’m more forgetful than usual.  I’m more clumsy than usual.  I’m rendered stupid for hopefully only one day.

One thing I DID do is hit up the grocery store to get things for UnCivilized Caveman’s Jalapeño Dijon Chicken.  It is THE BOMB DOT COM!!!!!!!!!!  If you want something delicious, find him on FaceBook.  Amazing recipes that are Paleo!!  So there’s 4 jalapeños diced in the marinade.  I know to be careful when cutting and cleaning the peppers but geez, I was not expecting to be wheezing, eyes burning, coughing, and sneezing…that is a bit much!  I’m still a rookie sometimes in the kitchen.  And on a dumb day.  

I haven’t worked out much this past week with all of this migraine nonsense.  I’m hoping the next upcoming week will be more productive.  It’s also a Date Day Week!!!  Good stuff all around!  Sunday My Love is off so we can go to a friend’s wedding.  Then only 2 shifts at the casino then we’re off: Michigan to see the family!  So exciting, a getaway is exactly what we need!  

In other exciting news, I’m up to 21 followers!!!

 Thanks you so much!!  I’m a bad ass, I know!  Next I’m going to try to figure out how to get my people to comment…

Eaters remorse

So My Love is working days for a few days from home. It’s his “weekend” from the casino. I go and open my big mouth and want “healthy Mexican”. So Urban Spoon has always found us some great food. I foolishly pick one, and we go.
It looked a bit shabby from outside…not to be confused with shabby sheik. We have been being really good and it was okay to go out for a bite. We walked in and should’ve walked right back out. So we sit, and there are no specials, no fun drink menu, nothing to hint at anything but a lack luster lunch. Our food arrives and it was blah blah blah. There was no one but us in the whole place and now we know why. It was a very very bad use of a cheat. Hence my Eaters Remorse. Now I’ll have to work extra hard in my workout later.
Disappointing for sure!!
Have you done that?
It’s such a bummer!!

Currently, we’re awesome!


Good evening!! Since my last post I’ve hit 7 out of 9 days working out and 1 of the 2 I missed, I took as a rest day.  My Love and I are really kicking some serious booty!  Our 10 day AdvoCare Herbal Cleanse is done tomorrow, so on Wednesday morning we’ll do our weigh ins.  I’m doing well with everything.  I feel all fresh and renewed!  It’s a great kick off to our new healthy beings.  We’re facing a huge undertaking to get to where we want to be fitness and weight wise…but that’s why I’m here: to share our journey.  

We’re going to MI at the end of the month and we’d like to be in a good place with our diet and workout schedule, so we’re working very hard and we’re enjoying the journey for sure!  We’re a great pair, we’re best friends and madly in love.  We’re each other’s accountability partner.  It’s amazing!  I am a very lucky lady!!

We’ve set the date for My Love’s 2 week notice at his full time job…we’re nervous but trying to make it happen.  18 weeks!!  All of our other things will be so much easier to do with some more time freedom.  Of course you need the income too, so money making is front and center with us right now.  Stay motived and head down working!!!  

I’m loving everything right now: I’m putting in some hours with the vacation club and I’ve made my chicken list.  I’m tackling that this week…..NO EXCUSES  I’m such a chicken!   Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!  

So I’m going to try to do my posts at a different time because no one is seeing me at midnight MT on Sunday…not that I think 10 on a Monday night is different…I’ll work on it.  

Thanks for reading!!! 

Does anyone have a favorite healthy recipe?  And, here’s a random pepper picture from my trip to New England in my parents garden.Image
