Back by popular demand

     Yes I'm back by popular demand... Ok maybe I wasn't demanded but I fell off from Blogging and the internet this last month! Why? My back pain and problems had gotten worst. And Christmas and my Grandmother having eye surgery the day after ment a lot of running around, in pain no less. Well it's Jan 1st so I'm starting over on my 30 day challenge. Both physical and blogging challenges!

Weightloss Wednesday: Dec 4th Blogaday

     As you may have seen in an earlier blog post. I am doing a 30 day challenge of both abs and squats. So how's it going? After three days I am sore. It being the 4th it is the rest day. I have decided that I will be keeping up with the challenge but on days I may hurt more I will be splitting the challenges into one in the morning and the other in the evening.  
     Weightloss is a big deal for me. I just lost 50lbs and due to medical reasons I gained most back. I can't workout yet 100%, so I'm going easy right now by doing these challenges. I am nervous I won't be able to complete them. But I will try.
    So what are some great ways to lose weight. Of course ask your physician if you are healthy enough to workout. We'll obviously I'm a work in progress but my advice see what kind of apps your phone has. There are many IOS and android apps that help count calories and activity.

Tasty Tuesdays: Dec 3rd

     So you may be wondering what am I gonna do for Tasty Tuesdays? Well if you didn't know I know how to cook. Also my Father owner a Restaurant when I was growing up. So yes I was always around food. Hence for my need for Weightloss Wednesday...   
     Well I'm gonna start my Tasty Tuesday with a recipe for something I've been craving: Avocado chicken salad: 

This is a healthier alternative to Chicken salad. It has less mayo and avocado for a healthy fat.

Ingredients:

2 cups shredded chicken
1 avocado
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp fresh cilantro
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt


Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20-30 minutes to let all those yummy flavors blend together. 



Serve on bread, flat bread, pita chips or any other way you like your chicken salad.

Tasty Tuesday tip: try using a crockpot for an easy way to make dinner without spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
