Future Hot Mamas…

Well, Christmas is over, and New Year’s isn’t really an indulgent holiday for me, so I have been doing some hunting around the web for diet advice, tips, tricks, etc…I plan on doing the weight watchers for the most part, but I have come across some great tools no matter what method you choose!

If you’re having trouble deciding which program to follow, check out Diet Television. I found this link on one of my favorite new (to me) blogs, Buzz Off. You pick the preferences you want in a diet, and it gives you 5 options to choose from! From there, I checked out the SELF Diet Club-it’s free if you subscribe to self, which I decided I needed to 🙂 , and has all kinds of charts, meal planners, exercise counters…

I also found a link to Hungry Girl, an amazingly cool site where the “hungry girl” has tips, ideas, polls and even a game called “Whack-a-snack”.

One of my favorite healthy meals is Chicken marinated in Italian Dressing, a little parmesan, and grilled with a bit of Paula Deen’s house seasoning (1/2c salt, 1/4c garlic powder, 1/4c pepper), brown rice and veggies. Sooo yummy. We’ll probably have that at least once or twice a week. Any more and DH will protest 😀 . I usually make a little extra chicken and put it on a salad the next day. It’s also great on a half of a baked potato with a little lowfat ranch dressing or salsa….

Ok, I have made myself hungry…The Great Hot Mama project begins January 5th! See this post over at Mom-o-Matic for details and the list of participants!

    I’ll have to give that a try!
