Weight Watchers

The last few weeks have felt remarkably busy.  I had an employee on vacation one week, and helped out another store a different week, so I have been working a lot of hours.  In addition, Abby's schedule is changing, and we're still adapting to that.  I don't have any chance to blog or check email in the morning anymore, which is the only time I have traditionally been on my computer.

I started Weight Watchers this week.  I am inspired by my mom, who has been doing it for about 2 months, and looks great!  She's been giving me all of her clothes that she's too small for, which is great - it means I have clothes, but I am jealous that she's too small for them.  Also, my sister has started offering me her clothes that she's too small for, too.  It really motivates me.

Yesterday, Mike called me at work and told me that he found some weight watchers recipes online that he was going to make this week.  He's being very supportive, and I love him for that.  Last night we made herb chicken piccata - which was a jazzed-up lemon-pepper chicken.  It was fairly easy and fast, and something we both decided that we liked!  While Mike was making that, I steamed some broccoli and made some white rice, flavored with the leftover chicken broth that Mike was using.  

Tonight, we're probably making Irish Stew...I will let you know more about that tomorrow.
