Oh, what a day! I'll touch on it a bit at the end of this post.
Today is weight-loss check-in day. I should start by saying that I gained 1-1/2 pounds while I was in Washington DC. I didn't limit myself and ate anything that I wanted to knowing that I would have to face the music when I got home. Well, I've since lost one pound, with a half of a pound to go to get back to where I left off prior to going on vacation. I already told you in my first post that I am a yo-yo dieter and I am true to my words! *hangs head in shame*
Today's recipe is called Mexican Burgers
1/3-1/2 cup of salsa
cilantro, a couple of teaspoons or so
Monterey jack cheese w/jalapeno peppers
hamburger buns or rolls, split and toasted
Combine avocado, salsa and cilantro and set aside. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Grill or broil chicken until no longer pink in center.
Before removing chicken from the grill, place a slice of cheese on top until slightly melted. Place lettuce onto the bottom of the rolls, top with chicken and avocado mixture. Serve.
Now onto the subject that I first made mention of. Let me warn you, if you are squeamish about bodily functions, read no further. Remember, you've been warned!
Today has been a stinky day. In fact, this past weekend was stinky too. I'm tired from the stress of worrying about my cat, Mouse. The poor dear was suffering from constipation. At least that is what we are hoping it was and nothing more serious. He's been growling since late Friday and we believe it's because he's had a tummy ache. He'd make his way to his litter box, try for several moments without much success. Mousie hasn't been drinking enough water and hasn't been eating as much as he usually does. I guess when you're constipated, you just don't feel like it. I called the Vet and he placed Mouse on a laxative in hopes that it would take care of the problem. Nothing budged. The Vet asked me to bring Mouse in today for an enema. That did nothing. He then had to resort to a manual extraction and was able to remove 4-5 inches of compacted "stuff". Then another enema. The enema did nothing again. I have him home now and I have to keep my eye on him and continue giving him the laxative for a couple more days. I'm hoping for the best. At least he's stopped growling for the time being.
Anyway, sorry for the long story. It's only a little after 5:30pm and I'm exhausted and ready for bed. I'm hoping for a better day tomorrow.
