Roast Lamb

Lamb lamb lamb...

I could eat lamb forever. I first got a taste for it in England. My husband wanted to try the local grocery stores instead of the base one. He brought home a pre-seasoned lamb roast with mint and some funky rice. Mmmm. So we're having roast leg of lamb with um stuff. Okay, with cous cous for me and rice for the wimps and veggies or salad. Probably salad. We've got three bags. I know, you all really care about my meals...

So I am avoiding the scale. My spacey trainer said it's best if I don't go near it. I, of course, went near it, and I am finally losing weight. At first, I gained, but it was because I was gaining muscle and losing fat. So I LOOK thinner, but now I finally am seeing the weight loss. I didn't do any of my cardio this week because my sons were sick. I'm not going to worry about it though, because I worked out Monday, am working out tomorrow and Friday, and can get at least two cardios in tomorrow and Friday. Also, housework counts for something. Besides, and this is important, DIET counts toward 80 percent of your success in losing weight. So eating right is by far the most important part of getting trimmer. I want to go to 125. My trainer set me at 132. He wants me to hit that. I am ambitious, apparently. I can do this by sticking to a 1500 calorie day. 1200 is too low and bad. 1550 good. 1551 bad. 1450 good. 1449 bad. Okay dude. I get it. Oh and I can't just eat one meal a day or two and call it good. I have to eat breakfast.

Breakfast. What is breakfast? In high school, breakfast was a cupcake and coca cola. Mmmm. In my first year of college, it was um, same, but with diet coke. IMPROVEMENT.... In the military it was coffee. Post-military, coffee. Post-military job, coffee unless it was wednesday, and then it was coffee and doughnut. Stay at home mom? Back to coffee. So breakfast is hard. Right now, I can do a granola bar and a fruit and um, coffee. I occasionally get to slip in a bowl of cereal or something. I'm not good at breakfast. It's hard to eat that early!

Next week's big meal: New England Boiled Dinner
I'm from New England, and we never ate this. But hey, first time for everything. I'm doing it for St. Pattie's Day. I, every once in a while, decide to try doing the whole brisket and cabbage thing. And every year, it blows. But hey, I'm nothing if not persistent...

Husbandly whine:
Him: I want to play my X-box.
Her: You can't. (not because i'm the big meanie, thank you)
Him: I waaaant to.
Her: You said you can't do family game night *we haven't actually STARTED this yet, we're trying to* because you had too much homework. *He's getting a degree, shhhh, most people at his work thinks he already has one...
Him: I can play tonight and suffer tomorrow.
Her: No, because I'm not going to mom's night out so you can do your work because you're so overloaded, PLUS we're supposed to do game night
Him: WAAAHHHH
Her: Life sucks, oh we're having lamb...
