Short but Sweet!

This will be a short post. I don't really have too much to say today. We have been super busy at work but I guess that's good!

This will also be a sweet post! Why? (Don't worry, you will never have to hear about this again!). Because the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup the other night! The parade and rally is today. It starts at about 10:30 a.m. I work very close to the parade route (they will pass us at one point) and all I can hear from my office is cheering and horns honking! It will make for a very distracting work day! I would love to be out there but I'm an adult with responsibilities! Sigh! I could take an early lunch and see part of it, I'm sure but I don't think I will go.

Here is a photo from 2001 on a family vacation at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. It's my father and nephew posing with the Stanley Cup!

Now I'm trying to figure out this maintenance thing. It's kind of hard when you have a "losing" mode in your head and now you are able to eat more! You start out with giving yourself 4 extra points for two weeks and see how that goes with your weight. Then adjust as necessary.

I actually wouldn't be opposed to losing about 5 more pounds. But I'm trying maintenance to see how that goes and hopefully I can stop paying for weight watchers! I need to work on the toning aspect more now. My tummy has flab galore!

One last note, I grilled corn on the cob yesterday. Do any of you grill corn on the cob? It was so good! I read an article that said you can do it two ways. 1 way is if you want the corn steamed, soak it in the husks for about 1 hour then grill it in the husks. #2 way, which is my method was, if you just want the grill taste but not have it steamed, remove the husks (do not soak the corn) and just grill about 10 mins each side.

Now the corn is round so I was unsure what 10 mins each side was! I did leave it 10 mins on the first side but after that I kind of flipped it every so often for a total of 25 mins. Delicious! I didn't put anything on it while grilling it, but I would be interested to hear if you have some sort butter or mix that you put on the corn prior to grilling it.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I hope I have a great weigh in!


  1. I LOVE grilled corn. yum!

  2. I have not grilled corn but someone just told me they grill it and then put fresh lime juice and salt on it. That sounds so good.

  3. Mmmm, that does sound good Tami!
