Chicken & Feta Tabbouleh + Wiffle Ball

It’s almost Friday :)!!!

I ended up eating lunch at my desk today I had to work on the my boot camp schedule for the next 8 weeks. I hope that all this planning dies down soon, I love being organized but this girl needs a break!

I have declared Thursdays as “Leftover Lunch Day”. The teriyaki chicken even tasted better today then  last night!

After work I headed straight to the gym and did a wonderful 45 minute circuit training workout from “Making the Cut” Jillian is a BEAST!

As soon as I got home I went straight to the kitchen all sweaty and all, I wanted to make sure I had time to make dinner. I have been waiting all week to make this new recipe I found in my Cooking Light Magazine.

I have been dying to try Bulgur Wheat and I finally found a recipe that looked super tasty,  Chicken & Feta Tabbouleh :).

I snacked on a few wonderful Toasted Almond Kashi Crackers while I cooked.

After dinner we rushed off to meet up with our Thursday night crew for a game of Wiffle Ball!!

Such a fun night and to top of it off I have a fun surprise for you all….I got a new camera( well new to me).

monday 054

All that patience that I have had waiting to buy a new camera has paid off!!! A couple weeks ago my friend Jess told me that she was buying a new camera, I told her when she did I would be willing to buy her old one. Well she bought her new one sooner then I thought she would and she sold me this beautiful Canon PowerShot SD300 for only $50!!! WOW I feel so blessed :)

monday 042

I used to have a Canon PowerShot, so now I just have to play with it a little more to figure out the best settings. We also have a Canon Rebel, that’s how I can take such nice pictures at home!

Alright friends I have yet another early morning tomorrow. I am going to run 3-4 miles before boot camp in the morning, so that means I have to be up at 5am!!!

Nite Nite

P.S. I almost caved into FroYo tonight but I resisted!! Only one more day of NO SWEETS!!!

That dish you made for dinner does look so colorful. YUM! Glad to see that you enjoyed Wiffle Ball. When i worked up at a camp one summer the staff would go out and play that game every night. It was so much fun.

Yay for $50.00 camera! That is such a good deal! You are a smartie!

Good job for resisting sweets tonight--I am going to be on a "no sweets week" starting Sunday. You inspired me. I realized how many sweets I eat a day/week and need to cut back a little--so next week will be a test. :) Thanks for the inspiration, doll!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
