 Not a big tuna person but found this recipe on Spark People, going to give it a try in place of beef one of these days (I think...)

We survived another night of hell with the weather. I can't remember when I have ever seen it lightning for hours and hours straight. We have had about 9 inches of rain in 2 days. Nuts. Anyhoo...I hope everyone is safe and having a good week. I am trying to keep the food demon at bay, he has been clawing to get out since I ate more than I should this past weekend. Funny how just a little bit of straying causes me to want to EAT everything and anything.

Here is the menu for today--
Breakfast: 1 EggMcMuffin and coffee   8  points
Lunch: tuna salad sandwich on whole wheat, lettuce, carrot sticks, 9 pork rinds, small apple, unsweet tea 10 points
Dinner: ?:

I am doing 30 minutes most days on the elliptical. I vary my levels and feel like I am getting a good work out. Going to start upping the time by 5 minutes and my goal for May is to be on it for an hour each work-out. I can't report a loss for April, I have lost 2 pounds in the last 2 months. There is a part of me that wants to scream and cry, but there is the other part of me that sees I am eating healthy foods, no soda with sugar, lots of water and LOTS of exercise and I am proud of that. I continue the fight!


  1. Yum! I just got your comment about kale and romaine in green smoothies. It does taste different. I have found that it is better if I make a smoothie in advance and put it in the fridge, it calms the texture of the harder leay greens down! My smoothie that I am having for dinner has kale and I made it this morning and poped it in the fridge so that it is smoother!


  2. Yo Go Girl !! ..LoL You're doing great ! Progress is progress no matter how the rate. Just keep the positive attitude.
    Luv, Nik

  3. Thanks for sharing! I was just wondering what else you could do with canned tuna, other then the old tuna sandwich. I love canned tuna :)

    You rock!
