Black Bean Soup and Changes are coming!

Easiest Black Bean Soup Ever
2 cans Back Beans
1 cup salsa (I used Peach Salsa)
1 can Chicken Broth
Blend one can of drained and rinsed Black beans with salsa and Chicken Broth. Rinse the other can of Black Beans and add the the blended beans mixture. Heat, add a dollop of Sour Cream and enjoy. Very low in points. One cups was only 2.5 points.

Recess is over.

I am not trying to kid anyone, I have tried to eat healthy and exercise more. I have succeeded much of the time, but I have not made this my top priority. It really has been relatively easy for me, so now I am ready to kick it up a notch. Recess is over, I am ready to get serious, lose some pounds and step out of my comfort zone. Not knowing exactly what direction this will lead me into makes me very uncomfortable, but it's gonna be worth it. I want to surprise myself, I want to do things I thought I couldn't do. I want to do things, I don't like to do, and I want to learn to like those things. I have a list, not sure I want to post my list yet, I am sure my list will change, some things I will keep, some I will ditch, but one thing is for sure and for certain..... Things are about to change.

Change #1 Exercise before work. That means getting up earlier. I can do this!

Stay tuned more changes to come....

No! I am not holding my husband captive.

But I am sure he will say I am. Today is "day one" of his healthy eating journey. I will not blog about his journey, but I am sure his will affect me. We have tried this before, and not with good results. I have high hopes this time though, I am no longer trying to entice my husband on yet another diet, but I am going to give him the tools to eat healthier. It all starts with Weight Watchers of course, but more than that, I want him to see the benefits of this lifestyle. He is ready to do this, and I am ready to help ( I think). I really want this to be a good experience, since it will be a "for the rest of our lives thing" and I am preparing myself for not being his jailer. I am sure he will be happy about that. For me the hard part will be not making him my project, and not allowing his success or lack of success to affect my emotions. So on day one I called him to see how he was doing. It appears he is just fine, he ate his lunch I had prepared for him, for breakfast, and he said he would hunt something up when he got home, (insert eye roll here) then laugh. I am afraid this will be one long journey....
