On the way home I had to stop by the grocery store. Valentine candy on clearance everywhere!!! I saw a box of dark chocolates and picked it up. Looked it over. Thought about it then put it in my basket. While shopping I kept thinking, "I know I will not stop at one and these things are loaded with empty calories." So before I left I went back to the motherload of chocolate and left my box. I don't really need them. Plus I have my dark chocolate drizzled strawberries at home. Win! Disaster averted.
Dinner came from America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook (one of my faves): Chicken Enchiladas.

Rachel had her cake decorating class. She learned how to make some sugar flowers out of royal icing last night. I'm a proud momma so I have to brag a minute: the teacher said she is a natural at this. :D Rachel wants to work in a bakery when she grows up and makes cakes like on Ace of Cakes. She has already assembled a portfolio and interviewed a baker as part of her career class that she takes. At 15 I didn't have my life in order that much! I really am proud of my little girl (who isn't so little anymore).
Here are some of her edible creations from last night:
All of the flowers harden and can be placed on anything.
I had planned to go for a run yesterday but Chuck and I were both tired so we postponed it until Wednesday night. Instead I did strength training: biceps, abs, back. I was able to lift some heavier weights on a few of the exercises so I guess I'm getting a little stronger. That's a good feeling. Call me Xena Warrior Woman. LOL
Today my mom is coming to spend the night. We both have a doctor appointment tomorrow to check up on our insulin resistance, etc. I'm a little nervous because I hate needles. I've passed out before and hit my head on a sink when they've taken blood. Seriously.
Hope you all have a wonderful day. I'm a little giddy because I get to meet Anne and go see Wicked this weekend. The countdown has begun!
