All Good Things

All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
Morarji Desai

Growing up, I can remember my grandpa always tell me that "if it were easy, everyone would do it", and I would have to say this quote is pretty much encompassing the same sentiment. I think we go through life, some of us look for the easy road, the easy way out, but then there are others of us who take the road less traveled, because we know it will get us somewhere so much better. And that's how I kinda look at the whole weight loss journey. There are so many quick fix diets, diets where you will lose 50lbs quickly, but how healthy are they? How much do you learn? Probably not very much. I'm sure everyone here at some point, at some time has at least thought about doing a crash diet, or taking pills, or something similar, but now most of us are on the right track. I know the road I'm taking isn't necessarily the easy one, it's filled with pot holes, big hills, and steep inclines, and it may never end, but at least I'm learning some along the way...and enjoying the ride :)

Nothing really new to report around here, just the same old stuff. Yesterday was a good OP day. I made my Mexican Pork Stew yesterday for dinner, and I made it extremely spicy...accidentally. I love the spicy stuff though, so only if it's making my nose run is it hot enough, and this most certainly did! But I was OP, stayed with in my points, got to the gym, so I pretty successful day. Today is going well, and I don't forsee any problems. I am having Sweet n' Spicy Chicken for dinner, and I'm going home to a quiet house, as the roomie is leaving for 6 days to dog-sit. So I'm very excited. I love a quiet house.

Anyone else watch the Biggest Loser? I never got into this show until this season. I always avoided it, but I decided to tivo it one time, now i'm hook. What an addiction. If there is anyone that watches it, which team are you pulling for?

Anyways, I really gotta get back to work, but I hope everyone is have a great day!

I can't help looking at blog entries at some sites and kinda think..."Hmmm...that's not going to end well!" We've been there and seen that gimmicks just aren't going to work.

Wow! Those sounds like awesome recipes. I'm trying out the WW tamale casserole this weekend for 'family dinner' at home with Max. If it's good, I'll share the recipe.

Did you say reality TV? I'm an addict.

I'm bummed, I was rooting for Bette Sue and Alli.

Not sure if I've ever commented here, but I have been lurking for a while.

I am a total fan of BL!! I've seen every show. How can you not be amazed to watch the transformation that these people make in their lives and bodies??? I was bummed to see Bette-Sue go, she cracked me up. Not sure yet who I'm rooting for on this one.

I missed it on Tues! I can't believe it! I got he rundown though from girls at work! That's too bad that they sent ome the pink team. I didn't like them at first but now I was kind of pulling for them!

The recipes look great! You are alwasy trying something in the kitchen. Where do you find the time?

Yay, recipes!

I really enjoy the Biggest Loser. But I have to DVR it ... the product placement and huge number of commercials makes my head explode.

I don't have a favorite team. I'm a bad person, since I root AGAINST people, not for them. Well, that's not completely true - I'd like the orange team to stick around since I find them so entertaining.
