GRADUATED from Nurse Practitioner school this May and am working here in Ruston at Dr Belue's office. Come see me :-)
So Im back now and have decided to use this media outlet as a way to keep up with my next big adventure, a half marathon. Im headed to Memphis in December for the St Jude marathon weekend. Jackie, John, Dad, and several others will be on Team Jake again this year. Jackie is running the FULL marathon (I would just die) and the rest of us humans (cause marathoners are not) will be doing the half. Ill keep yall updated on training, what im eating (with new found love of casseroles and anything that can be cooked in one dish), and life in general. Hope youll check back often!

These are the guys at the tailgate, no other good pics. sorry...
My husband really did put together a great tailgate. A bit redneck, but fun. We had a TV strapped to a tree, an antenna, and grill. Of coure, the tech rug had to be bought...without my knowing how much it cost I might add!
Ruston Tractor hosts the beef up your taigate each week. I need a good beef recipe! Please send some tailgate friendly beef things that will knock the socks off the judges!

So, this weekend and all our fun plans are mine by myself! I do have my first test Monday, so Im sure Ill get some great studying in. However, I will not miss the Tech home game. Its the first one of the season. Got some great plans with some great people and cant wait!
Is it bad that Im just a little pissed at him???? He left today saying, "just tell me to have a great trip." The nerve of him! He needs to tell me to have a great anniversary (by myself). So honey, have a GREAT trip (insert sarcasm).
If anyone is going to be in town, hollar at me! would love lunch and dinner dates...
disclaimer-i really do love my husband, i dont love that he left me on such an important weekend, tech, anniversary, my first test...would have been nice to have some spousal support. Ive vented, i feel better...

wait for it...
are you rady???
141! Thats it.
I know I say Im loosely following weight watchers, but in reality, my eating has gotten a ton better. lean protein, veggies, fiber, etc...
What is wrong. I know I work a lot of nights, but I take my food, I have completely cut out diet coke, I only drink water and tea, and occasionaly a gatorade.
I try to run 3 days a week, but my schedule of flip flopping back and forth between nights and days, in no particular order, I know does not help. I truly only get to do it about 2 days a week.
I guess from now on, when I set my alarm for 5 am and snooze until 518 am, I will instead get up and do my p90x ab video. Maybe that will set in motion some weight loss.
I will also have to cut out (or down) my wine intake. I dont have near as much as I used to, but when we go out to eat, I love a glass (or 2) of red wine. Mel, no more porch nights unless we are drinking water!!! ha!
I vow to myself never to get fat again! I am going to lose these last 11 pounds if it kills me!
any doc friend (who I seriously doubt is reading this) want to write me some addipex??????
Hope every one has a great weekend, Im goin to munch on some carrots...

6 whole wheat tortillas
1 pound cooked chicken breasts diced
1.5 cups fat free sour cream (you cant tell its fat free after its cooked!)
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 can rotel drained (or not, however you like it)
4 oz can green chilles
some taco seasoning, how ever much you like
cumin, salt, pepper (how ever much you like)
1 cup low fat cheese
lay 3 tortillas in the bottom of casserole dish
mix everything else together
put half of it on top of tortillas and put three more tortillas on top of that
put the rest of the "mixture" on top of that and top with a little more cheese
bake at 350 for 30-45 min covered with foil until hot and bubbly
it was really good. the real recipe served 12, so i halved it. you could even add whatever else you like
I served with guac and salsa. (the wholey guacamole brand makes 100 cal packs that are really good). also added garden salad with ff catalina dressing.
6 points per serving
i know we eat early, always have, always will...
John even liked it...
