No-Weigh Friday

These weeks are disappearing faster than toilet paper in my house. It's been a great week, in addition to getting plenty of sleep, I started some new supplements to help balance my hormones and boost my energy. It seems to be working. I'm pleased with my progress in the exercise department, too. I walked the neighborhood, hiked the mountain and got in two balls-out weight lifting sessions. I'm up to 7.5 pound dumbbells on YTWL and I'm still feeling it. What's YTWL? Have a look...

I do them on a 30 degree incline bench, but the arm movements are the same. It's so much harder than it looks. Have you started doing any weight lifting?

I've been out shopping this morning, stocking the pantry for the weekend. We're off to a low country boil this evening, the wine is chilling and I just popped the corn casserole that I'm taking along in the oven. Yes, that corn casserole, the insanely delicious Paula Deen version. I did alter it slightly because it can be greasy. I halved the butter and I used light sour cream. I bought a triple cheese blend (sharp cheddar, mild cheddar and creamy jack) for the crowning glory. It's a good recipe, foolproof, a crowd-pleaser and it sits well. Do you have a favorite corn casserole recipe? I'd love to hear it!

Has World Cup fever reached your house yet?
We're all wrapped up in the fanfare and definitely looking forward to the England v. USA match tomorrow. We've got a special meal planned, smoked brisket, slow-cooked bourbon beans and a grilled salad with Georgia peaches and Stilton. We'll get the food slow-cooking in the morning and dine after the match. I know Rob will be heartbroken if England loses, but I'll be happy either way as I'm just here for the brisket. ;) *makes shifty eyes and whispers...c'mon USA*

The timer is about to go, so I'm off. Whatever you're doing this weekend, enjoy it and stay safe!

  1. What supplements are you taking? We (a few moms in the area) started a walking group and just started a blog about our journeys to getting healthy and losing the weight. We live in GA too!
