Pumpkin, Greek Yogurt, Cool Whip and teddy grahams...

Oh how I love thee! LOL

Okay, I've been hooked on greek yogurt with fresh peaches or pears and some sort of nut and honey or maple syrup for some time now. It's been my breakfast of choice, delicious I tell you! Delicious! And then, starbucks had to remind me that it's that season again for the pumpkin spice latte... Ahhh how I love the flavor of pumpkin, but not the calories in my latte! So.... I decided to try mixing pumpkin in my greek yogurt, OMG!! It's delicious with nuts OR with graham crackers (teddy grahams?) and topped with a bit of cool whip, I'd say it's a healthy pumpkin "pie." Delicious!!!

I'm alive and well

It has been waaaay too long since I posted. What has happened? We got settled in to the new house and then life went crazy at work. I was working 60 hour weeks, combine that with a 40 minute drive each way and trying to fit in at least 3- 1 hour workouts, I didn't have much time for anything other than coming home, having dinner and getting to bed.

I'm on vacation this week and then next week I start at my new job - same company, new position! Yay for the promotion I've been working hard to get!!

So excited!!! In the weight loss world - I'm at a plateau. Crazy hours and stress do not help and just when I thought I was going to be nicely in the green zone, nooooope. I need a fill... bad...... So I have an appointment to get one October 5th! yay!! Go me. I can make it until then, I know i can!!

Over all though I'm in the 170s so that's not bad. I got down to 172 then I've hovered between 172 and 175 i think. I've been avoiding the scale like it's the plague! LOL

Workouts are going well and I'm seeing a chiropractor that is just AWESOME!!! He's teamed up with my personal trainer so it's fantastic!

Well off to get some food. Breakfast was greek yogurt with a drizzle of maple syrup and topped with dried cherries and sliced almonds. Then I had a (gasp) Non-fat white chocolate mocha after my workout while I was grocery shopping. Time for some chicken and baked sweet potatoe fries!
