Day 3: The Fresh Diet

As you may have read on yesterday’s post, one of my readers commented that this seems like too little calories . . . especially since I am still nursing. I have to say I agree. I was told that this would be 1800 calories, but the dishes are marked 1200 – 1400. So today I supplemented and I am much fuller and happier tonight for it.

I was also excited to get on the Wii Fit and hear I had lost 4 lbs. It says your body can swing up to 2 lbs. different in the same day due to digestion, etc. But even if I’m just down 2 lbs. I’ll be happy with that.


Goat Cheese, Baby Spinach & Sun-Dried Tomato Omelet with Seven Grain Toast

This meal wasn’t bad at all. The egg dried out a bit when reheated and I did add a touch of butter to the bread again. The only negative with this meal was that I was still quite hungry after finishing. I added a banana . . . and sh! maybe a handful of peanut M’n’Ms.


Chicken Caesar Salad with Grape Tomato, Romaine Lettuce, Whole Wheat Croutons & Sun Dried Tomato with Caesar Dressing.

Another really good salad. This one did come with chicken, although the flavor bothered me. My solution was to stick this chicken in with the tequila lime glaze that was part of the chicken skewer.


Chicken Skewer with Tequila Lime Glaze

Not so much a skewer as some chunks of chicken with a side of glaze, but this glaze was great and I enjoyed this with my lunch salad.


Butterscotch Chip Cookies

Still hungry after my lunch and my snack, I decided it was a good time for dessert. This cookie was much like a sugar cookie sprinkled with miniature butterscotch pieces, but it was good and I would have eaten more if I had any more. Instead I might have grabbed another handful of peanut M’n’Ms.


Lean Turkey Meatballs with Fresh Marinara Sauce with Spaghetti Squash in Fresh Basil Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomato Couscous

Everything in this meal was tasty, but it honestly all fit on a saucer! I inhaled it and then still needed the snack I didn’t eat yesterday.

Artichoke Bottoms Filled with Creamy Cauliflower

The problem was . . . the snack was not my cup of tea. Loved the mashed cauliflower yesterday, but didn’t love the artichokes today . . . and unfortunately the cauliflower inside them tasted like artichoke. I couldn’t finish this so it didn’t help fill me up.

As a last resort, I had my husband make me one of the quesadillas he was making. It wasn’t too unhealthy we did use flour tortillas, but we used Pam to sautee the onions and the chicken was smoked on the smoker in the backyard. He heated everything up in the microwave and then browned it – without any butter – on the griddle. Finally, I was full!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
