Dare I say it?!

I am actually really enjoying exercise these days. I used to find it extremely annoying when these skinny women would say that "love to work out". Love would be a really strong word, but I am learning to harness exercise as a valuable stress relief. I also enjoy the feeling I get after a good workout, I feel so refreshed and energized. Don't get me wrong, I may still cry during my step aerobics and swear under my breath while jogging. I am just trying to think differently about exercise.

Right now I am at a weird place. I had gotten into a really good pattern and was working out every morning before work. Then I had my surgery and now I am very limited to what I can do. It would be so easy to not exercise at all. I guess I just need to keep at it and just do my walking. Something is better then nothing right?!

On to another topic... I LOVE taco salad. Last night I made some ground turkey taco meat and mixed it with black beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes on top of a big ole pile of lettuce and... HEAVEN! Mexican food is by far my favorite and has been one of the most difficult things to satisfy. This worked great and was so easy too. Yumm-o, it will surely become a standard meal as long as I can eat it.

OOOO I love mexican food too! I think you can make good choices and still get the fix. I have found that I can eat crispy tacos (beef or chicken) with no problem and I ususally cut the cheese to lower the fat. I also have found these tostada shells that are baked that are way way low in calories and fat. They are made by mission and are freakin awesome for that crunch fix.
