I am loving the below mentioned Bob Harper's Skinny rules and even with some cheating my husband and I have lost some weight! He is down 10lbs and I am down 8.5lbs! Yay! It is no where as hard as I thought it would be and we are full continually. (except before bed which is part of the plan.)  :) I am missing sugar though! He wants no sugar.  Including artificial sweeteners. Those desires can be dealt with on our splurge time luckily.  
Loves!

This year we are considering following Bob Harper's skinny rules.  Have all ya'all tried it? The book is fascinating so far! I am feeling bombarded by 100's of theory's and ideas some out and out contradicting each other.  I want to find something I can do for life and helps me to be healthy and fit. Especially if that includes losing some weight. The things I am reading so far make sense to me anyway.

 Also for new years resolutions I chose to 
1. take things day by day more and be in the moment more

2. All of the family will have the opportunity to learn to play the piano. How you ask? From my dear mentor/friend Ms Merrilee Webb and her program. Click here to read more. I for one will be participating!! (so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

3. Continue to exercise 5 days a week

4. Commit to become closer to my Lord and Savior.

5. Fix the food issues...see above... 

What are your goals? Do you believe in resolutions? 

 LOVES for ME!!

Cheese Stick Sandwich


Cheese stick Sandwich (a guilty pleasure)
This sandwich is so good! It is a naughty little thing that should not be eaten by anyone who is concerned about their calorie intake but by those who want something so good its bad.  LOL! it tastes very much like a cheese stick which explains the name. 
Makes 4 sandwiches

INGREDIENTS
1 package of 8 slices of frozen garlic bread
8 slices of provolone
your favorite marinara sauce (I just used canned spaghetti sauce)

Allow garlic bread to thaw. Place 4 pieces in a warm fry pan/skillet. Add 2 slices of provolone cheese onto each of the 4 pieces of bread in your pan.  Add remaining 4 pieces of garlic bread to the top of the cheese.  Grill sandwich until golden and then flip to brown the second side. Dip sandwiches in marinara sauce to eat.
