Project 365: Week 46

Project 365 button designed by http://richgift.blogspot.com

Well, it's been about three weeks since I last managed to post any pictures.  Had a lot going on schoolwise, healthwise, jobwise, marriagewise...actually it's been so "wise" around here that I'd really like to crawl under a rock!  More on that in another post should my brain decide it wants to come back online...

Here are some pictures:

On the good side, the diet has continued to work.  I hit 40 pounds gone this week (20 more to go).  In the interest of trying new things, this is tonight's vegetable of choice:

I am attempting to roast (and eat!) Brussels sprouts.  I have never had them before and seriously Googled "how do Brussels sprouts taste?".  Who knows?  Roasted Brussels sprouts could be my new best friend or they may be a disaster.  Tune in and find out!

Something that I know *has* to taste worse than Brussels sprouts ever could:

Yuck!  How may years has this stuff been around?  And why has no one ever thought to make it taste any better??  I have something trying to gain a foothold and I can't afford to miss work or class so I have been downing this stuff along with a steroid shot from my doc and a Z-pak.  All hail medicinal chemistry!!

Finally, I have new (smaller size!) sleep pants.  The SU bought them.  Think he was trying to make a commentary?

Update:  Roasted Brussels sprouts are...actually pretty good!


  1. hahaha, love me some Grumpy! ... i take nyquil gel caps now so i don't have to taste that nastyness...much better for me.
    Add some fried, crumbled bacon to those brussel sprouts, and mix in a tablespoon of maple syrup...it'll change your world, hahahah!

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss, what an accomplishment. It truly is one of the hardest things to do.

    I love Brussels sprouts. I have a recipe that calls for bacon and dried cranberries, but then I guess Brussels sprouts are good for until you add the bacon....

    Good luck with the continued healthy eating...

  3. I love brussel sprouts too, but my family doesn't. Little do they know I am trying a new recipe for thanksgiving that includes turnips...shhhhh..don't tell 'em!!!

  4. This is hilarious - we were just talking about brussels sprouts on facebook yesterday. My response was: little cabbages - blech! But you know, I don't think I've ever even TRIED a brussels sprout. Now that's just discriminatory behavior on my part - condemning an innocent vegetable based on its appearance.

    I'm really proud of your hard work. I have NOT been working very hard. Sigh.

  5. brussel sprouts, yum! How did you like them?
