Happy Healthy Monday

Drum roll please……. I lost 1.6 last week. I am so close to doing in a new number. My goal each month is to be in a different number. Like from 230 to 220 type thing.  So I am hoping my Wed WI will show I have cross over. I still have a ways to go to get to where I was earlier this year but slow and steady wins the race right?? 

If anyone is looking to be a guest poster and loves tv and movies please let me know. My site The TV Nook is looking for content. Great way to get track backs to your site. 

I am bummed that I will miss the twitter party tonight. My son has his Christmas program tonight starting at 7pm. If it’s not too long I might make the end of the party. 

My goals this week is to work on more exercise with my Wii and water. My water has tanked. I went from like 80oz to nada. Time to get the hydracoach back out. 

Ok have a super week and enjoy the recipe. 

While black beans are popular in Venezuela, this dish spotlights green beans. They add lovely color and texture to this savory baked egg dish that is perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Cut the warm frittata into wedges and serve with your favorite tomato sauce or white sauce.

  1. Woohoo! Good luck on the new number this week. I am pulling for you. Karma just seems wrong, if anyone YOU should not need to get the Hydracoach out given your generosity in the past. Work on getting that water in! Have a great week Karla.

  2. Mmmmm thanks for sharing that recipe! I just need evaporated milk to make it, so if I can convince kids to LEAVE THE HOUSE I can pick it up and make it for dinner. I just got a hydracoach too – it so freaking awesome!! Dig it out and have a drink with me *wink*!

    I missed most of the party last night b/c LB didn’t want to sleep. Oh, well. I laid down with her and fell asleep too. Guess I needed that 🙂

    Have a great week!

  5. I also think the recipe sounds interesting and will add the items needed that I don’t have to my next grocery shopping list. As an aside why is it almost every recipe requires something that one otherwise might not keep on hand?
