Writing Again

I'm back. I think. Work has been overly stressful from some changes in our staffing.  I took it out on my refrigerator and my blog. I stopped paying attention to what I was eating. I also stopped writing it down. I stopped writing here completely! My mom even noticed that I haven't updated here recently. I haven't even been here to check on my stats or comments. Today was the first day I was here to check on the blog. Actually, I haven't even been keeping up with my blogging friends. I have no idea what they are doing these days.

So I'm back to updating. It is a new year coming up in just a few days right?  I'm going to keep writing about my struggles and successes. About different recipes and workouts. I just need to keep writing!

Today I'm going to write about the great cup my mom bought me for Christmas. 
Copco.com
My mom bought me a Copco Stir and Sip cup from Joanne Fabrics.  They were on sale I guess. She's been walking around with one of these cups for the past couple of months and said they are popular among her coworkers.

Ive seen these sort of cups all over the place recently. My mom says it's because it is easier to drink out of a straw then tip the cup up to your mouth. I didnt really believe her.  But I heard it again from a friend who doesn't like the cold water up by her face.

So I filled the cup today with some water. And I drank two fillings of 24oz this morning alone. Wow that was easy! I almost think drinking out of a straw is just so absent minded that it's beyond easy.  Do you have a cup with a straw that you drink out of to get your daily water intake?

The Grill Pan

I apologize to ye faithful readers that keep coming here to see if I updated my blog. I am sorry I haven't been too on top of it lately. It's more like I haven't been very motivated to actually write anything. So tonight, I write about my grill pan and tomorrow night, you get a recap of No TV Wednesday (Which is quickly becoming a tradition in my house). Maybe on Friday you'll get a review my husband's and mine adventure of joining a gym last weekend. Oh so much to write about...

But now on to my grill pan.  I love my grill pan. I love it so much I often forget that it is in my cupboard. How lame is that? I actually forgot about my grill pan. A grill pan is essentially like any other fry pan except it has ridges and groves to give your meat/vegetables the grill lines. Now, I can guarantee your food will be delicious but I can not say the same for your food having that smokey charcoal smell or taste.

 I made chicken breasts for salad lastnight for dinner. Don't they look delicious? I only used some olive oil and spices to marinate the meat. My grill pan can also be used in the oven.

So if you're looking for something a little different for cooking, look for a grill pan.
