Im back

I haven’t written in a while. Things have been more than the usual crazy. So many things going on. So many prayers sent. None answered. But I keep telling myself to have faith. That’s all I can do now. I don’t know all the details, but I know my family needs prayers.

As hard as this week will be, I’m ready for it. I used up all my excuses and pity last week. This week I’m putting my happy face back on. You know, the one that hides the pain and sadness so well. Should be interesting to see what the therapist has to say this week. Speaking of doctors, this week I see my hematologist too. Next week I have my Liver Clinic appt. And I really home my regular Dr. is there.

I also fell off the exercise train. Fell off and run over by is more like it. But it’s a new week and I’m jumping back on. I did stick to my cooking at home goal. Yay me. It felt good to know what I was making each day. I watched my serving sized and didn’t have any second servings. I did get a little chocolate happy which is quite odd because Im not a big chocolate person. We did grocery shopping today and I am set for the week. Lots of veggies and only a few processed things. I’m juts not ready to make my own hamburger buns yet.
I don’t know what I am making each day, because Ill be cooking around my Drs appointments. But here's what we are having.

Chicken strips and fries. By making these from scratch I will be cutting out about 300mg of sodium. The calorie count does go down but only by a little.

Sloppy Joes. This is another thing I started making at home. The boys love this stuff but there is no more Manwich here. Again the calories don’t go down a whole bunch, but the sodium about 300mg again! The recipe I have calls for ketchup and tomato paste, so I will use the no sodium kinds.

Chicken Roll ups are a fajita of sorts. Boneless Skinless thighs with bell peppers, seasoned and wrapped in a tortilla. Good stuff. I skip the tortilla because if I don’t then I want cheese on it and that plus the tortilla is a little to much sodium and calories for me.

Pork Tenderloin. Yes I know it was on my menu last week, but we ended up with leftovers one night, so I have carried this over to this week. Not sure if I will stick with the same recipe or not, but yeah.

I love short weeks. Especially when both my boys are sick. Stupid weather. Anthony got soaked when they were leaving Monster Jam last weekend and my this morning, both boys are coughing and congested. Should make for a fun week. I guess I better get to cooking. I started this post last night, fell asleep, wrote a little more this morning, went to get Ant from school, and now I’m tired of writing.
