Best Turkey Burger Ever

I am going to share my recipe last night because it was absolutely amazing.

1 pound ground turkey
1 can rotel tomatoes & green chilies
4 tbsp of  Huy Fong Sriracha sauce (or as much as you want, it depends on how spicy you want it)
1 tbsp of oregano
1 tbsp of Worcestershire
Mix all together and grill and it makes the best turkey burger of your life. Then put it on a bed of mix greens and you are good to go for a delicious, healthy dinner.

Although since I cook a pound I will probably be eating it for every meal till dinner tomorrow. So next time I might just freeze what I don't need to cook.

Day 10:
Breakfast: banana
Snack: non-fat yogurt
Lunch: turkey burger (mixing in rotel tomatoes, topping with mixed greens, no bread) side of spaghetti squash and small amount of marinara sauce. It is so funny when I am eating the spaghetti squash I feel like I am cheating because it is that good. I am so glad I found this on pintrest. I see me saving a lot of calories and carbs here on out.
Snack:1/2 cup veggies and black beans with a spoonful of grilled chicken
Dinner:turkey burger and side of spaghetti squash and small amount of marinara sauce carbs.

Me Time

After a long day yesterday, nothing beats coming home, having a hot detoxing bath while sipping on some red wine with nothing but candles burning and silence. I think it is a necessity to make sure you have some "You" time everyday because it calms and gives you time to think. I need to make it more of a priority to set time aside each day to do this.

Last night I cooked the best grilled chicken I believe I have ever cooked for my lunch today. I bought grilled chicken and baked it in Huy Fong Sriracha sauce and my low fat dipping sauce which is a ranch packet and low fat sour cream (I only used 2 tablespoons). I then put  it on a bed of mixed greens and put more of the hot sauce on it as my dressing. (As you can see I love anything spicy).I am pretty excited about it :)

Day 9: (holy moly I still have had no carbs meaning, breads, rice, etc.)
Breakfast: banana & edamame
Snack: non fat yogurt
Lunch: spicy grilled chicken on a bed of mixed greens
Snack: 3o pistachios
Dinner: turkey burger (mixing in rotel tomatoes, topping with mixed greens, no bread) side of spaghetti squash and small amount of marinara sauce

The Best Thing Yet

It has been one heck of a morning. Picture this, running through the house trying to get ready, shutting my cats tale in the door, riding down the road with hair rollers in my hair, putting on makeup at stop lights and traffic on 85 like always. whew I am worn out and it is only 9:00. Maybe this will teach me to get up and not hit snooze.

Now I am very excited about what I tried for dinner last night and I am having it again for lunch. I saw on pinterest how to cook spaghetti squash, and oh my word it taste just like noodles. So spaghetti hear I come, it was so delicious. So I cooked come grilled chicken (in hot sauce like always) and then baked some spaghetti squash and then topped it all with some marinara sauce. ( I used Ragu, I heard it's the best for you).

Day 8:
Breakfast: Banana
Snack: low-fat yogurt (I normally get non-fat but I grabbed the wrong one, I checked out the label and it's not bad, but next time I will be more careful)
Lunch: grilled chicken cooked in hot sauce, spaghetti squash topped with marinara sauce
Dinner: Tuna & caggage mixed in hot sauce and low fat dressing on a bed of mixed greens
Other: 3 glasses red wine

Bridal Shower

I traveled most of the day yesterday, so today is going to be a joint entry. Yes, yesterday was a crazy, busy day. First we woke up and went to my boyfriend's cousins church in Florence, which I absolutely loved. We then went out to do a fancy, delicious lunch for my boyfriend's sisters bridal shower and then a full day of shopping. Not to mention we had little ones with us, so you can only imagine how hectic being in the mall and bed bath and beyond can be with 8 women and 2 children that all love to talk. whew. Once we got back from the shopping excursion my boyfriend and I packed up and headed home. On the drive home I quickly decided there was no way  I wanted to cook dinner so we decided to stop and eat at Ruby Tuesday along the way. Finally made it home and unloaded my car and realized I definitely wasn't going across the street to buy groceries for the week for breakfast and lunch (total lazy mode had kicked in), so I figured I would just buy breakfast and lunch in the cafe tomorrow at work. I am now kicking myself in the rear for not going to Bi-lo because for some reason the cafe is closed today. I am sitting here having a double coffee and sugar free sour mints for breakfast. Defiantly not the eggs whites I was hoping for.

Now since I began I first said I was going to cut out carbs for two weeks but I have decided to continue it my boyfriend's sister's bachelorette party which is the weekend of March 1st. Now this will be a tough struggle for me but it will definitely be worth it, especially with all the pictures that will be taken. I will also have to watch out when I do bring carbs back into my diet that I don't overindulge and gain it all back. So I have 32 days to push!

Breakfast: broccoli & low fat dip
Lunch: grilled salmon salad (salmon, lettuce, onions and a spicy low fat Thai dressing)
Dinner: Grilled chicken with light barbecue sauce, salad (edamame, lettuce, sunflower seeds, light Parmesan cheese, broccoli, balsamic vinaigrette), zucchini, spaghetti squash with little marinara sauce.
