A Mixed Bag

Thanks to everyone for all the support after my last entry, it is great to know that all my cyber friends are rooting for me. I did not go to weigh-in today as we went on a shopping trip to a nearby town and got back to late. I will go the the meeting tomorrow night and will post my results for the week then.

I went to the gym 6 out of 7 days this week, I only took off Saturday. Usually I am not the type to exercise everyday but I am still loving it so I might as well go while I feel so motivated. Next week my friend and I are going to go before work in the mornings. I am a little leery of this as I have never been much of a morning person but I'll give it a try.
I treated myself to some new running shoes today, they are so pretty that I have to take a picture. I used them tonight on my 3rd day of the C25K week one (AGAIN!!!) and they were so comfortable! I have done week one 4 times now, never feeling ready to move on to week 2. Tonight went really well though and I will start week 2 on Friday. Here is a picture of my new beauties.

Thanks Janet for the carrot cake recipe, It turned out fantastic and my DH said it was better than the one I used to make. We had it for dessert yesterday after a delicious dinner of chicken breast stuffed with spinach, mushrooms and feta. For a side I roasted squash. A low point and filling meal!

That chicken and carrot cake looks really yummy. I'd love to have the recipes! :)

The shoes are really cute and the recipe looks wonderful as well.

Your dinners look good! Would you mind giving me the recipe for the stuffed chicken? I'd like to try it =)

Good for you getting in 6 days! Love the new shoes, very pretty!
Good luck starting week 2!

Purdy shoes. :) yeah for your commitment to exercise! I'm going to have to firm up my routine now, too- since bootcamp has ended.

so glad the carrot cake worked out. It looks delish! (as does the chicken and squash) :)

I just sauteed some finely diced mushrooms and onions in a little olive oil. Added chipolte pepper, and salt and then dumped in a bunch of spinach and tossed until wilted. Then I added a couple tablespoons of feta cheese.

I pounded the chicken breasts really thinly, spread on the spinach mixture, rolled up the chicken and secured with toothpicks. I cooked them on the indoor grill and they were delicious!
