Short and sweet

First of all- you guys must try the Slow-cooked Salsa Chicken. I, for one, don't really get the idea of slow cooking- is it supposed to taste better? Is it SUPPOSED to be convenient, because how is that convenient? Your food has to cook for 6 hours- can anyone keep me from feeling stupid and explain? Either way- I love it! First time I've used my little baby. The chicken was OH so tender and the salsa, taco seasoning and mushroom soup was an awesome, delicious combo. How can something so healthy (besides being high on the sodium side) be so good? I almost feel guilty- I DO feel guilty. In my mind, my ass needs to be eating fish and chicken 24/7. It's all mental.

I'm tired today. Staying up late watching stupid TV and being back in the gym has caught up with me on this Wednesday evening. I decided that as much as I wanted to and needed to, cardio was OUT of the question after work. I took to my lovely at-home weights and worked on my biceps, triceps, abs and back. I figured as long as I can fit in cardio 4X this week I'm happy. Only because it's my first week back- otherwise, yet again, I'd feel the guilt within.

Current Anthro obsession: These babies. Budding T-Strap Shoes. (Check them out on Kim over at Anthroholic.)

They are UH-mazing! Unfortunately SOLD OUT online- even called customer service and no luck finding them in stores anywhere. I guess I Ebay stalk or hope that they miraculously appear in my closet. Blah. They are DARLING! I just love fashion pieces that make a statement without being TOO overdone. To me these scream- "I'm a glam bitch."

Tomorrow I want to re-post and entry I did at the start of my blog of time line photos from my weight-loss journey. My weight goes up and down (lately mostly UP!!), but I thank God all the time that I'm 5'10 and when I gain weight, I gain it evenly.

Until tomorrow :-)

Hot shoes and tights!! Hubba hubba! I think the slow cooker is supposed to be convenient as you can put it on in the morning and when you come home from work dinner is cooked. That's the theory, anyways!

Those shoes are AWESOME! Love the tights too! Good luck finding 'em! :)

Yep....slow cooker is supposed to be great b/c of the whole: "put it in the pot and forget it" thing. Kel loves hers and uses it all the time. :)

I just found your blog! Love it!

I absolutely love those shoes AND the tights!! As for the crockpot.. I love using my crockpot! It is so nice to throw ingredients in there in the morning and then be able to come home and have dinner waiting!!

New follower here :-) You asked if I was a XO because of my owl layout, and no I'm not. My sister is a freshman AXO at the University of Kansas and I was secretly rooting for XO at the beginning because then I could vicariously live through their owl mascot, hehe ;-) Owls are just a new obsession of mine...

Can't wait to read more of you, hope you're having a great evening!

I have been following your blog for about a week now, and I am really loving it. I enjoy reading about someone else trying to get themselves back into the great physical shape they once were in! I too, got side tracked in my fitness regime.

Have you considered posting an OOTD? From reading, I think we are similar height/weight and I would be interested to see how you put all the cute finds you blog about together.

Keep up the fun blogging!
