Hi Everyone

Hello People!!!!

Well the computer broke again... Goodness me. Its time to buy a new one I think and that's what were going to do. Yah Hoo... Can't wait. My laptop shuts down on its own at least 2 times a day and it takes about 10 to 15 attempts to get it back up again.. I shall never buy a HP  Pavilion again.. Its not even over 2 yrs old and the company wont even fix it.. Doh...

Here is a little life update.

I went to the EYE DOCTOR and guess who needed glasses? Me.. after almost 41 yrs I finally needed them. I was so excited.. I know it sounds silly but I've wanted them forever!!! I'm apparently near sighted, so I only need to wear them a little for TV and what not..

I also got a Blood pressure cuff for me to monitor my husbands blood pressure and my BP.  Happy to know that hubby's  BP is perfect and so is mine.. What a great load off my shoulders to finally be able to keep a eye on our health at home. Seeing as how my dad has his heart disease issues and now my mom and her blood pressure issues I need to stay on top of this for sure.

I also finally got new work out shoes and visited a foot Dr. Were trying the shoes and orthotics I have first before I get new ones made.

On the weight front I lost 2 lbs this Friday. So very happy I was stalled for a bit there due to my non tracking lazy ass. Chip eating candy sucking can do this to a person don't you know!!!

My little one and everyone in the house got a head cold last week but were all getting better. He will be going back to PRE-K on Monday..

That's about it for now... Hope everyone had a great Halloween..

Im Back

Hey guy's...

Sorry for the absence. My laptop hard drive got fried and I lost everything.. I did however a few weeks ago back up my pictures so at least I have those. I didn't dare blog on my iPhone since I'm  all thumbs and trying to get everything in on my phone sucks... Hubby fixed everything and now I'm back.

Things have been really stressful the last few months and at times it was a tad too much to handle. My mom went in for her lumpectomy and everything was negative. So happy for her . Her pre-op EKG showed some issues with her heart and they feel she may of had a mild heart attack. Very shocking to say the least and so upsetting. All these things make you start to think about your own health and can send a nutty girl like me into a tail spin. Anxiety has been at a all time high for me.

This year has been full of ups and downs. My dad and his open heart surgery for triple bypass, my mom's breast scare. Her heart issues now to top it off. At least everyone has come through everything ok and I'm so grateful that there ok.

My little boy has started going to Pre-K and he loves it. A huge and welcome break for this stay at home mom. I was so nervous for him and I'm sure all moms feel this way for the first day . Thank goodness this is behind us and it was a amazing transition for us.

On the weight front I'm at a stall and its all my fault . I've been half assed for a good month now and so disappointed in myself. I'm down one then up 1 its never ending. Enjoying a few to many chips and chocolate bits here and there. ARGGGG. I can't blame it on anything else. I know exactly what I need to do to get this weight off and I've been not doing it..

I've started to work out again and I'm doing the Nike App which I enjoy . You get to compete in challenges with your friends. I love a good challenge. I'm giving my self a good month to give it my all and if I'm still slow on the loss I'm headed to a doctor to see about my hormones. I think something is going on with me. I cry at the drop of a hat, I'm grumpy and everything can set me off. Not fun at all. I don't know if its from the stress of the last few months of the constant stress of worry.
I'm almost 42 people.. Yikes...

Ok that's the latest update.  I have some reviews to post on some new Weight Watcher things. Yummy.

Hope everyone is well and your all doing great .

Busy Few Weeks..

Hi Everyone...

 Mum was here for a little visit. She is going into the hospital on Friday for a lumpectomy on her breast . Not fun.. Were hoping for a good out come and all our fingers are crossed for a good result.

She came here for a little R&R before going in. It was well needed and she and I had a great visit. Nothing like mommy and granny time.

On the Weight Watchers front ...

Things are going great this week!!! I've accumulated already since my Friday weigh in over 60 Activity Points.  And its only Wednesday people!!! So happy.. I snuck on the scale this AM and I'm down 2lb. Last weeks weigh in was not great and I've been gaining one losing one.. A silly sloppy half ass effort on my part the last few weeks.  But I'm back again and its all good!

I gave up doing videos on YOUTUBE. I don't think it was a fit for me. I will just post videos on here from now on.

Well I hope everyone is doing great and all is well!!!

Smart Ones Chicken Fajitas Review

Hey Everyone ..

I have a review for you ..

Weight Watchers contacted me with some new product's to try out. I received in the mail the new Chicken Fajitas and Steak Fajitas to try out. We decided to try the Chicken one first .

As you can see on the box the Fajitas have a Points Plus value of 7. The frozen meal comes with green and red peppers. Mexican rice with beans and corn. Please remember this is a Weight Watchers product and portion control is key. :)

The meal comes with two small tortillas and yes they are pretty small but being a Weight Watcher girl I totally expected it and was fine with that. You heat these up at the very end in the microwave for 25 seconds.

Ok now onto the meat and fillings. The smell was very nice and very zippy. The red peppers and green peppers were fresh looking and the chicken was really moist. I do wish there was a little more chicken in this meal to make it a tad more equal in both tortillas. Hmmm

We put the fajitas together and they looked really nice. The tortillas held up well with all the fillings. No leaks. We were not able to fully wrap the tortillas like on the box . Remember they are really small.

Ok now onto taste.

The rice was spicy and very flavorful. The beans were cooked perfectly as well as the corn. The whole meal had a taste of taco seasoning. So if you like that flavor your going to enjoy this. I didn't add any sour cream or shredded cheese to my fajitas and I think if I did it would of made it even better. At only 7PPs you can totally add some light sour cream and even some cheese. Oh and some fresh cilantro would of been great too. 

I will get the Steak Fajitas review up just as soon as we open the box.
