OK, I am sorry for not posting yesterday.  I was kinda a busy day for me with no help that I am use to in the evenings.  My husband had to start work early today so instead of leaving the house at 3:30 AM this morning, he just stayed in the city last night.  I guess that's one of the downfalls of living in a small town and working in the city, but we made it through the evening just the kidlets and I.  With that being said, I didn't make no fancy supper cause I knew the kids wouldn't eat what I had planned so I thought I would save the recipe for another day.  Instead we had Octopus's and seaweed.  No, it was not the real stuff!!! (Like hell, I would eat either of those! And I wouldn't make my kids either, if they want to try else where they can go right ahead, but those 2 things are on my don't buy list!)  The octopuses where hot dogs cut in half and then one end cut in quarters and boil them (I am not a fan of hot dogs boiled so I skipped these!) and the sea weed was spaghetti cooked and I added some green food coloring to the water to make it look kinda like the real stuff.  My kids thought this was one of the greatest meals ever. 

So I was thinking yesterday about my blog (should have been writing, I know....I am sorry!).  I think I might start posting my recipes only once a week instead of daily.  Looking over my own blog I think it would just make it easier for the reader and myself.  I will still try and post my daily meals, but some time on the weekend I will write a full post of all the recipes I used.  If there is ever something one of you comes across and would like the recipe sooner, please feel free to contact me at and I will be more then happy to send it your way. 

Now, one more thing before I head off for a while.  My work outs yesterday...... When I got up yesterday morning I didn't want to do a work out, I wasn't going either.  Then I came to my computer and started reading my blogs I follow daily.  Well they surely inspired me and instead of finishing the read then, I went and got changed into my work out clothes and did 45 minutes on the Wii Fit.  After the work out was done, I did come and finish reading every ones posting!!!!! So I just want to thank you all for the inspiration, whether you know it or not, reading your blogs helps me alot.  Now for my evening work out, again I wasn't really planning on working out last night but I got some inspiration from a T.V. show this time.  I started watching I Use To Be Fat , on MTV.  Wow, its the first time I have seen it, I am not one to watch MTV a whole lot, seems how my TV is on kids shows all day long and then in the evening I seem to be to busy to watch much else.  Anyways, back to my point here.  This show is about young teens tyring to lose weight, from what I have gathered from the 2 shows I watched last night is that they have about 100 days with a trainer and they work their ass off to lose the weight.  They are taught how to eat correctly, how to deal with emotions and how to exercise right.  So after watching about 25 minutes of the first show, I felt the need to exercise.  I was thinking what I could do so I was still able to watch the rest of this show.  So I broke out the Wii fit balance board, my runners, and my pedometer, and decided I was doing to keep doing step ups till the end of the show.  And that's what I did.  I know these step ups aren't as high as some exercise ones but still after 10 minutes I was ready to give up, but I pushed my way through it and kept going till the end, a whole 35  minutes and a hell of a lot of sweat.  When I took off my pedometer I was surprised to see I did well over 4000 steps, actually it was 4684.  I was thinking maybe 500, but nope I was wrong.  I guess when I got into the rhythm of the steps and the show at the same time, I kinda forgot about how much I was really doing.  All I know is that I was excited when I seen that big number.

  4. I have recently started watching that show too and I'm liking it! Those weight loss shows are great motivators.

  5. I love your octopus dinner i think i will have to use that one day!!!
    well done on getting up and exercising. it does make it easier when you have something to watch that's why i love my gym (the treadmills and bikes have tv connected)
    i know that your step is adequate now but do you know you can get extensions for your board to make it taller.

  6. I bought a Wii Fit this evening. Hopefully someone will hook it up for me so I can use it tomorrow evening. I had stopped at the store with the intentions of getting a tredmill but couldn't tell that much about them so I just got the Fit stuff for our Wii.
