I have also joined my husband and daughter in biking. I'm just getting started. My hubby bought me a Trek for Christmas and I feel confident riding it. I hope to be out riding the trails once the weather warms up.
This year is all about getting healthy, fit, and staying motivated. What are you focusing on in 2015?

Both recipes called for taco seasoning so I made that as well.
I don't think I'll ever brown chicken for tacos again. Making it in the slow cooker was so easy. The taco seasoning was great. The Texas Trash Dip was simple and delicious. There wasn't any left. We had 8 people eat dinner here last night and everyone enjoyed the meal.
These recipes will be added to the meals that I made on a regular basis. I'm also going to make the taco seasoning from now on as well. It was simple and better than the packets.
I pinned a bunch of recipes tonight so I'll have some more new things to try next week. I'll review another dish soon.
Happy pinning and cooking!

I've been a bad blogger, but will try to improve.
Once again I am having surgery. About 4 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Morton's Neuroma in my left foot. I have a tumor on the main nerve between my third and forth toes. We tried a cortisone injection and a post-op shoe with no relief. The pain is actually getting worse. On Thursday morning I will have outpatient surgery to remove it. I have complete faith in my orthopedic since he did both of my daughter's ankle surgeries. I was doing so good walking and exercising before this. I can't wait to get back to it.
As surgery approaches I'm feeling that pre-surgery funk hit. I've done what I can around the house. Gabe and Liberty have been a huge help. I've planned easy meals and even froze leftover chicken casserole and spaghetti last week to help them. I just feel blah. There's things I would love to get done, but by the end of the day it really hurts to walk.
When I planned surgery I didn't even think about it being Father's Day or our friends' baby shower this weekend. All I wanted was to end the pain and be in better shape by the end of the month for Gabe's college graduation.
Hopefully all will go well and maybe I can still attend the baby shower, I'll just have to have my foot up.
Surgery #8, please be good to me.

Is it just me or did this month fly by? We were so busy I rarely sat in front of the computer or picked up my tablet. Social media happened from the phone.
The 2nd week of the military diet was our last. It kick started our metabolisms like I hoped, but we were both irritable. Not a good thing to be.
We've had a few weeks of not eating right and minimal exercise. All of that changes Monday. I'd love an excuse to get a new swim sit this year.
Our amazing Miss Liberty turned 11 this month. We had a fantastic family day filled with great food, Oz, the Great and Powerful, cupcakes, and Build-A-Bear. She had a sleep over with 6 friends and there was no drama.
The tenant is due to move Saturday. I'm excited to change the locks on that house and get someone new in it. I swear if they don't move this weekend I am not responsible for my actions.

This is going to be our 2nd round of The Military Diet or 3 Day Diet Monday-Wednesday. Last week Gabe lost 4 pounds and I lost 2 pounds. We ate fairly well Thursday though today plus I worked out. I managed to lose 1 more pound. It's making meal planning easy.

Lunch: tuna, eggs, crackers, cheese, peanuts, rice cakes, chicken, toast, veggies, soup
Sunday-we went to Picklefish for pizza
Monday-chicken, green beans, apple, banana, vanilla ice cream
Tuesday-turkey dogs, spinach, carrots, banana, vanilla ice cream
Wednesday-tuna or chicken, banana, vanilla ice cream
Thursday-whole wheat pasta and vodka sauce
Friday-red beans and rice
Saturday-Papa Murphy's for Liberty's slumber party
We're going to exercise while on the plan this week since it's not our first go around.
