Cooking Day.

I baked a chicken yesterday. It's like the third Sunday in a row I've done this. This time it was because 3ft asked for it. He super loves eating chicken off the bone. I think it's a kid thing. I remember liking to. Now, I'd rather have a boneless skinless breast. I guess I must be old. Anyways, back to the chicken. When it was done I realized it was Sunday and Costco closes at 6. It was 5:30. I don't have a car during the week and needed some things, so we ditched the yummy roasted chicken and hurried to Costco.

We made it just in time but then 3ft was starving. So we got Costco hot dogs and pizza instead of eating the chicken I slaved over. It wasn't too big a deal, the chicken would save no problem and since it was getting late so we opted to eat the Costco food. 3ft ate half my hot dog and almost all the huge slice of pizza -- minus the few bites me and the hubs took and the dough Mr. Grumpybutt munched on. The best part about all of it: I didn't feel guilty. I chose to share my hot dog with 3ft because he was staring longingly at it and besides I didn't need a whole one anyways. I got full off my half and a couple bites of cheese pizza.

I also made some marinara sauce from scratch with real tomatoes (as opposed to fake? no...) with raw tomatoes I guess would be the better way to say it. I don't think I used enough tomatoes with all the other veggies I put in there because the sauce turned out really thick and orange instead of red. But the flavor was pretty delicious and as I kept the seasonings simple I can use it for a myriad of dishes. I'm planning on making a sloppy joe ratatouille later on this week with it.

So I spent most of my day yesterday cooking (and laundry). So, of course, I was in heaven (not because of the laundry -- I hate laundry). I also did my crunches, push ups, and the dreaded plank. I'm adding 5 more push ups and 25 more crunches today which will up my push ups to 60 a day and my crunches to 250. So we'll see how that goes. The crunches aren't too bad but I still hate the push ups!

We ordered pizza last weekend. I only ate one slice. *Proud* But then I ruined things by baking pecan/white chocolate chip cookies. But today, I sent 95% of them off with hubs when he went to work. I have a habit of grazing on baked goods, so now I can stick with grazing on veggies and fruit. :)

Way to go with the control!

Turkey -- you go girl on the pizza control and really who can say no to pecan white chocolate chip cookies.. a woman stronger than even I!!!

I do that too. I love to actually do the baking as well as the eating. So I just send most to work with Husband so I can't graze on them.
