Well it’s almost Tuesday now. I am finally done with my blogging internship so I can get back to focusing on my site again. Boy that Kelly McCausey sure teaches you a ton of stuff. I am so thankful for the opportunity.  If anyone followed my love for TV on her site, Family TV Addicts, please know that I will not stop blogging for my love of TV. I hope to either continue there, if Kelly lets me, or start a site of my own. I think I found my passion.

Weight wise goes, my passion is still lost. There are 3 gals here at work doing WW so I hope I can hook up with them to keep me going. We will see how that goes. I am still new here and don’t want to step on any toes.  All I know is I have to do something.  My homework for tonight is to find 5 new recipes to try that are weight friendly then make my grocery list to go tomorrow.

I hope you all have a good day. Here is a recipe for you.

  7. Wow – that recipe looks AMAZING! as for your passion, I’m no expert by any stretch so take my advice with a grain of salt, but there’s a really corny saying but I SWEAR it works: ready for it? NO REALLY READY FOR IT? OK:

    Act as if…

    that’s it. Act as if you have your passion back what would you be doing? Act as if… so simple that it’s amazing but totally works. Good luck and keep your chin up 🙂
