Manic Monday!

Connecticut is digging out from Irene. I didn't realize how much damage there was to the trees and things until I went out this morning. We have a bunch of trees down around my condo, branches are EVERYWHERE. Being a homecare nurse I was driving down some streets in the Himalayas (not literally) and found there were a lot of down power lines and huge branches I had to avoid. 500,000 (47%) of the state is still without power. We actually lost power once around 3am last night. I heard everything click off and the power was gone...it came back around 5, thank goodness! I would not have been able to get my car out of the garage if not for the power coming back!! I believe CL&P probably shut off the grid in Windsor to restore power to some people in the area.

I can't believe it's already Monday!! I swear time is flying. Weigh-in is fast approaching and I'm cautiously optomistic. I need to lose at least 1.6 pound to achieve my Labor Day goal (FINGERS CROSSED). I've been doing a lot of exercise lately. Unfortuantely no yoga DVD yet, I have not purchased a DVD player yet. I think it'll be my reward if I achieve my labor day goal!!!

Tonight I'm making my BBQ Pulled Pork Wraps for dinner! I have been craving one all week so I figure why not? It's a healthy JC friendly meal and satisfies my craving for barbeque at the same time. Note: I'm also planning on making these on labor day. Possibly going to my mother's house and I was thinking this would be a great addition/alternative to the normal hamburger/hotdog fare!! And extremely easy to prep. Just cut all the veg in advance, you just toss the cheese on (heat if you wish), you can have the pulled pork heating on the stove OR even put it in a crock pot and let people add their own meat. I, of course, would measure mine out! :D Easy peasy!

Working on some new fall recipes to share that are JC and diet friendly. Starting September 1st I am going to post a recipe a day that is healthy and delicious!!!! GET EXCITED! Tell all your friends!!! :D It's going to be awesome.

Happy Monday!
