Not much new here but I am trying to stay dedicated to posting, commenting and to myself.

It's been a pretty quiet weekend so far. I dug out all my tax stuff yesterday and started sorting. UGH! That is always stressful but I made a good dent.

Hubby went with me for my hike (which is something I am starting to crave, weird!) We went for an hour at a slower pace due to his pain. It was good as he had been down for the last week with some sort of virus and the fresh cold snowy air I am sure did him some good. I managed to make it more of a workout for me as he took his time climbing our driveway (which has a 1000' elevation change from bottom to top) I went ahead the 1/4 mile and circled back to do it again with him. I'm a bit sore today!

I've been doing great on the eating, water and hiking. My scale has moved three ounces down. F*%$! Whatever! I'm doing what I know how to do. It will happen, fingers crossed!

Made some fish last night that was yummy.
I foil lined a baking sheet and then sliced a lemon in real thin rings. Laid the lemon on the foil, placed Tilapia on the lemon. I seasoned to top of the fish with a little low sodium old bay and black pepper. Then I poured about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of boiling water around the fish, covered tightly with foil and baked at 400 for about 12 - 15 min. It was really moist, had a lemon flavor and I think each fillet is under 100 calories and 23g protein (as I recall)

I'm going to return to my Taxes now. =/


  1. The fish sounds yummy. think I may have to make fish for dinner. Yum.

    Good luck on the taxes... did mine last week and we owe big time. UGH.

  2. David does them...He usually starts before all of the paperwork is in and then we get into a big fight as he blames my income for causing us to pay more (i would be more than willing to quit my job :P)...anyway this year for some reason he is avoiding the job...not sure why? but ill take it.

    Good luck with your slog and SNOW! I cannot wait to see the backside of this Winter.

  3. Yum on the fish and YAY on the hike. Keep it up, girl!

  4. That fish sounds awesome, and good luck with your taxes!

  5. Taxes are no fun! But I hope at least that you get some money back! As for the fist - it sounds WONDERFUL! Makes me want to make some for dinner. Good for you for craving exercise. Its always so great once you're doing it, isn't it?

  6. I am definitely going to try your recipie.. sounds delish.. and um Jen.. can you come and do my taxes!!! I am a tax virgin!!

  7. 1000' elevation change on your driveway? Wow! Hiking that would be a pretty good work out!

    I'm looking forward to meeting you!
