I wanted to share a picture of what I tried for dinner tonight. We were planning to have chicken fajitas, and normally I marinate the chicken in the oil/water/seasoning mixture, then pour all of that into the pan to cook, and top it with cheddar, sour cream, and salsa in a fajita size or soft taco size flour tortilla. Today I decided to step out of my comfort zone and change it up quite a bit. Tonight I marinated the chicken in water/seasonings, and then cooked the chicken and peppers and onions in olive oil. I used lettuce leaves as my shell, and topped them with fresh salsa, plain Greek yogurt, and less than 1/2 serving of 2% Mexican cheese blend. It was SO good! I am just stinkin' excited about how good these were! (Please excuse my 1990's dishes...I've had them since I was 16, and I just can't bear to part with them! My mom bought me 16 (yes sixteen---you read that right) place settings of this Corelle Forever Yours pattern, and it stayed in my hope chest from 1990-ish until 1998 when I got married!)
Anyway, I am still hopeful, and normally I've already kind of fallen off the wagon by this stage. I feel like my energy will increase when my body gets used to these changes. Speaking of changes, today I got on my bike, with the babies in the trailer and rode up and down my street a couple times (just to make sure I wouldn't drop dead or crash into something-it's been so long!) I also went for a walk tonight, because I hadn't gotten in my walk this morning. I even jogged a few yards here and there (because it was dark, and I was sure noone would see me...ha!) I know I just need to keep going and listening to my cheerleader!
