Weekly WI and Beef, it’s what’s for dinner

Morning!  Not only did I have to get up for WW today, but I also had my yearly eye exam.  Being diabetic has it’s challenges, and one of the things I don’t take lightly is my eye health.  Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness.

What’s sad is that people who don’t control their diabetes now, may feel fine, but damage is being done and by the time they show signs of retinopathy, it’s usually too late.  Happy to say my eyes are perfectly healthy – even though I can’t see – my prescription for my contacts is -6.5!  I’ve had glasses since I was 10.

So drum roll please. . .

Granted, that’s for 2 weeks, but I’ll take it. 😀  I never want to see a 16_ on my weight again!

I had yesterday off – I took the day off because I thought I was having lunch with this lovely lady, but I had the wrong date – so next Friday we will be having lunch. 😀  So after Hannah got done with school we met for lunch, and then we went thrifting.  You never know what you are going to see!

I didn’t end up getting anything though – but Thursday at the Economy Shop I found some glass containers for my pantry – love the tall spaghetti one – it cost $3, the others cost $2 each.

It was such a gorgeous day yesterday – sunny and 80 degrees – perfect grilling weather.  We picked up a beef rump roast and had rosemary potatoes on the side.  For rare meat, take the meat off the grill at 125 degrees, let it stand 15 minutes before cutting it – perfect every time. 😀  Here’s the sky just as I began to grill.

I did rosemary potatos in a skillet – it cooked on the top rack while the meat was cooking, and then when I took the meat off, I put it on the lower level to crisp up:

My plate:

Enjoy your Saturday!  And go wish Amanda luck – she’s running the Chicago marathon for the first time tomorrow – go girl!  Hope it doesn’t get too hot – I think it’s supposed to be in the upper 70’s tomorrow.  I know you’ll do great!

  3. Whoooooooooooooooooooop! Yayyyy on the way in Biz! You rock 🙂 Glad you had fun with Hannah. That hat is awesome haha. Enjoy your weekend

  4. I think I’ve seen that doll in my nightmares!!!

    Love the pasta in the glass containers – makes it look so appealing!

    Have a wonderful weekend – oh, and congrats on the W.I.! 🙂

  5. Congrats on the loss! I bet being in the 150’s feels great!

    I love the glass containers for pasta. I need to get my pantry organized like that!

  6. AHHH I can’t believe you put on that hat! I got head lice in the 4th grade and now I’m totally skeeved about putting my head in random places. Ryan’s bff bought a thrift store couch and I wouldn’t scoot all the way back. I also get weirded out at movie theaters. Now I feel itchy. You are brave Biz. Congrats on the loss!

  7. Woo hoo!!! Under 160! congrats, you should be proud.

  8. I’m pretty sure that doll wants to murder me in my sleep. I felt so good when I finally shed the 16_s for good (I hope!). Now, I’m clawing my way out of the 15_s, but it’s taking forever.

  9. Good for you Biz, you look slim and trim in those pics! That doll has to go though,but I love the rat book, what a great gag gift! (for a rat!)
    Your potatoes look awesome, wish we were having grilling weather here in WA state!
    Have a good weekend!! 🙂

  10. Sorry, but you should’ve bought the coat. That’s HAWT! giggle No, really I like it and it looks warm. Nice thrift store.

    Congratulations on an awesome loss. You are doing this – and that is great!

    I wish we could find cheap beef. We were going to have hamburgers last night, but not at 5 dollars pound. Sigh. Prices are ridiculous anymore.

  11. Congrats Biz! That’s awesome!!

  12. Weighting For 50

    Woo Hoo Vat!!! Way to go on that stellar weigh in!! You didn’t buy that hat????? I don’t get that…it’s so fashion forward. HA!! Have a fantastic weekend.

  13. Awesome weigh in! Congratulations!! Oh how I ache to be in the 150s. I’m so close. I need to get my butt in gear. You have inspired me.

    Love your thrift store pics. What a fun time. I am going to have to check out some thrift stores to see if I can find some glass containers. I have a couple and I love them. Now that I buy more from the bulk bins they would come in handy.

    Hope you’re having a great weekend.

  14. Ok I have to say that I bet you are a BLAST to go thrift store shopping with. I almost shot water out of my nose when I saw the rat owner’s manual!!!!!!!! hahaha

  15. You are so smart to keep your diabetes under control. I know a diabetic man who had his foot amputated because he couldn’t manage his health. My diabetic cousin was losing his eyesight and couldn’t see very well anymore because he didn’t manage his health, when he ended his own life. So it is very serious and a good thing for you to raise awareness about.

    🙂 Marion

  16. Nice loss, Biz!!! That’s wonderful 🙂

  17. Biz, you should have bought that coat! It looked great on you! Very glam.

  18. Great job on your weigh in Biz. I know the effort you put in to it. You look great – it’s paying off. Congrats!
