It's been a while since I've posted a Weight Watchers update. As of yesterday's weigh in, I'm down 16.4 pounds. I'm currently obsessed with getting jeans that fit. The droopy drawers look is funny, but not very attractive. (Can someone tell that to all the guys who wear their pants around their asses and have boxers showing?) Not all days are easy to stay on plan. Last week I tried the Simply Filling Technique for 3 days. Friday was lunch at the restaurant run by a local cooking school. I planned ahead, because I knew I wanted the pork schnitzel with braised red cabbage and the chocolate mousse for dessert. Worth every bite. By the way, it's a serious bargain too. $10 for a 3 course meal. Check out cooking schools in your area and find out if they have a teaching restaurant.
On the recipe front, I made buttermilk roast chicken last night. I read about it over at Running Off The Reeses. It looked good, it smelled good, it tasted like regular roast chicken. So, I won't be posting it, but check out Smitten Kitchen if it sounds awesomesauce to you.
Finally, I've made a concious decision not to run the Hot Chocolate 15k this weekend. I'm not making any excuses. I'm not up with my mileage, and we have a lot going on. I'll still do some races this year, but I'm focused on other things right now. My mother in law's illness has made The Aussie and I to start to focus on new priorities.
