Nothing yet. I had my appointment yesterday and he did his thing and order an ultrasound today. If they find anything the doctor is suppose to call tonight or tomorrow am. He’s not expecting blood clots but because of family history checked that out. He’s not sure what it might be, maybe just left over from my injury but shouldn’t be effecting me like it is. He’s not sure and I think because he’s not sure after this test comes back and if it shows nothing is just going to wait and see if it heals itself. He told me if nothing shows up to go ahead and get back into whatever routine I can handle and just push myself to tolerance.
I so need to get back into a regular exercise routine. I so need to get back into my diet routine. I so need to lose the last of my weight that I’ve been hanging on to for the past 4 months. I looked back and other then quitting eating so I could make Allan’s last challenge and hitting my goal (which in turn backed fired and came back in just a short time) I haven’t done anything real right. Oh I lose a pound or two here and there, I gain a pound here and there. I know what I have to do and I’m going to. I’ve been way to wishy washy. Now I can’t say I haven’t been doing good changing shape because that I have been. It’s just the scale that isn’t changing much. But I want both, the size and the scale. I love washing my clothes and hanging them up and thinking, that’s me now. I love putting on Jim’s jeans and stuffing the cat in the waist band with me. I loved putting on Mike’s jeans and even though they didn’t close I could zip them up. I love seeing people I haven’t in a while and they gasp and say I look great. So even though the scale isn’t moving I am. But now (if God willing and the doctor says) I can go back to the gym and the pool and get that scale to move those last bunch of pounds away.
Today I made the coolest, best tasting, not fattening chicken nuggets today. It’s 120 calories per serving,8 carbs, 5 fats and 13 proteins (using myfitnesspal recipe calculator). With a mixed salad of all kinds of goodness this was the perfect supper and under 300 calories.
Baked Chicken Nuggets
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut up about 1 pound of boneless, skinless, chicken into 1-inch pieces. I usually use chicken breasts, but you could also use thighs.
Put 2 cups of cornflakes between two layers of plastic wrap and fold up the edges. Then use a rolling pin and crush the cornflakes.
In a bowl, mix together the corn flakes, 1 TB flour, 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper.
Beat 1 egg with 1 TB water.
Dip the nuggets in the egg mixture, then roll in the crumbs.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Recipe serves 6.
My grandma is back from Florida. I still find it amazing that at 95 years old she took 2 flights to get there from here, spent a week visiting family and friends and then flew those two flights back home. She got home yesterday and tomorrow I’m going to go and visit. I missed her so much.
So that’s that for now my friends. I hope you’re having a great week. Blessings to you all and boy do we have blessing to feel good about.
