What I am is TIRED of CHICKEN

I have no sticky left in me. For a person who has always been so tenacious and determined, not to mention a control freak; what has happened to me?

I have really great "why's" for losing weight. I am entering my pros, which means all the benefits to become leaner and healthier. It's only been 6 days since I started and man do I want to quit.
I like lists but taking all the ingredients over to the computer to enter the foods I eat takes a long time. Then once it's entered I can't change the serving size. Bother.

I don't like dry white meat. I don't like just egg whites. I am a bit of a spoiled brat in that if food doesn't taste good to me I'd rather not eat it. This is a fat lady in a pout.

The percentage goals of fat, carbs, protein, aren't that easy to meet. I never do get the calories right. I am always way under the right amount. You might think that's good but no it will probably slow me down. After my first few days of activity my hips are so seized up that they only feel better in bed. Just weight bearing is bad.

Alrighty then so what is going on for the bright side of life?

Oh no! Take it easy on yourself! You will get there! I love to scramble my egg whites with spinach or broccoli and/or fresh basil...Makes them yummy!! You can do it!

You know, we aren't quite as young as Janie, either! I need to lose more weight than you, I'm sure--but I know I have to be in the right frame of mind to do it--and right now, I am not. I'll try and cut back ---but I'm not ready for Boot Camp! Take care--and don't push yourself to the breaking point.

It's not boot camp. It's the course on line. It's probably easier on boot camp because there are more people talking to each other. My hips and feet are so bad I can bear weight.
I have too lose weight or buy a walker, and then a wheelchair and then the nursing home.
That is my breaking point!

Take some chicken breasts, pound lightly to thin out between wax paper sheets, brush some olive oil on both sides of the breasts, season with sea salt and pepper, grill on a stove top pan or grill for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Dice an onion and mushrooms and saute in a wee bit of oil in pan until onions are soft and top your grilled chicken with them. The meat will not be dry.

Oh man! It does sound like a lot of work. I'm sure it will all be worth it! Keep up the good work, and make sure you are getting plenty of sleep. :)
