 (Just in case you are wondering what those orange things are, I diced up sweet potatoes and roasted them in olive oil in the oven then when they came out I rolled them in brown sugar and cinnamon while still warm.  I know I'm suppose to be watching my sugar intake but I didn't eat that many and they were so good.)
I did my interval walking/jogging tonight.  Instead of jogging 60 seconds and then walking 90 seconds like it said for beginners on  I just jogged as far as I could and then I walked.  I ended up doing half my distance jogging.  I did really good on flat land but when I got to the hills it was just to hard but at least I pushed myself tonight.  I was really embarassed at first worrying about what people who drove by were thinking about someone my size jogging but I got over that.  They may be thinner than me but at least I'm going to be healthier.  My time tonight was 1.8 miles in 25 minutes.


  1. This meal looks great! You really only need a small amount of sugar and cinnamon so it shouldn't be too bad. They look good!!

  2. OMG, that meal looks de-lic-ious! I'm a diabetic and love carbs. I am trying to eat less of them, but it's a hard habit to break (darn it, did I just reference a Chicago song, my husband loves to sing that song, I don't love to hear it). Your portion size are great also btw.

  3. I love sweet potatoes to Wendy but usually I just bake them in the microwave and then pile on the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cooking them this way I got in my healthy oil and I only had to put alittle brown sugar and cinnamon on them.

    Thanks Debbi it was yummy and I really liked the sweet potatoes cooked this way and my kids loved them to.

    Thanks Tammy. Its hard not to eat any carbs but I have cut way back. I was a macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes kind of gal. I love the comfort foods, to bad they are all so bad for you.
