Asparagus :)

So there's a vegetable I couldn't do much with since my new plan.  Asparagus!!! That says it all for me.  I used to eat it with  hollandaise or melted cheddar cheese.  To find a healthier option I just experimented.  With only one attempt I came up with this dish.  Now I didn't do exact measurements but with healthier ingredients you just worry about over all serving size. 

1.  I steamed the asparagus till almost tender.

2.  I took some fat free Parmesan cheese, pepper, and minced garlic.  Mush it down in a separate bowl.

3.  Put asparagus in a baking dish sprayed with olive oil or pam.

4.  Drop the Parmesan cheese and garlic granules onto the asparagus.

5.  Broil the asparagus until the Parmesan cheese and garlic is a golden brown. 

6.  Eat and enjoy!!

To get ideas I looked at the Internet for different options its easier now when you know what are healthier options. 

Good luck on experimenting with foods.  I can't wait for a bigger kitchen in my own home where I can come up with some more great healthier food options!!!

Stick - to - itness!

So glad everyone is sticking with me through this difficult time for me.  If you weren't here for me I'm not sure I'd still be able to reach my goals.  Even though I seem to be in a road block with my weight loss I'm continuing and pushing through.  We all deserve the best for ourselves.  You got to do what's right for yourself.  If  your out there thinking about changing your life in anyway think on how it would work for you every day.  Don't plan on a diet with food your unhappy with because you will never be able to stay on it.  Experiment with foods you'll learn so much!!

During the difficult times....

Day after day, night after night it seems as though it's one thing after another for me.   There seems to be problem after problem.  Lately it's with my health.  When I got didscouraged before I used to go engorge myself in food and hide while doing it because I was so ashamed.  I'm glad to say I'm not taking my stresses out on food.  I've found other ways in dealing with my stresses.  Have some upcoming tests on my stomach and have been in some extreme pain.  Not just my back or hips but all over my body.  Skin, muscle, and bones.  I just don't understand it but I'm leaving it to the Lord.  Prayers are welcomed.  I can't wait for this pain and stomach problems to decrease so that I can move formward with my goals.  During the hard times I'm learning you have to stay strong.  It's hard but it's worth it!
