Day 28: Eat Well and Drink Your Water
After all the flying around, FlyLady adds the extra step of menu planning and asking ourselves “What is for dinner?” I tend to menu plan each weekend and set out what I would like to eat beforehand with the use of tools such as Allrecipes.com. There are many quick dishes I can prepare beforehand for the week. Writing it down and having lists of ingredients makes this task easier. FlyLady also wants for us to drink enough water which is great in this hot weather. I tend to vary my water consumption from plain mineral water to sparkling. I drink enough throughout the day and I try not to overdo the caffeinated drinks including iced tea.
So far, I’ve found the FlyLady useful. I’ve been applying it my own way. I’ve been slow and consistent about it. In fact, these Babysteps have taken me month to get to work for me. I’ve set my routines for my needs. The way I see it is that FlyLady provides a great template or recipe to get things done. Even a great recipe, you might need to tweak to suit your needs. How many times have I eliminated an ingredient or substituted for something else? It is the same with FlyLady. The routines are there. The importance is to follow them your way.
Now, off I go to plan my fajita dinner.
Chicken Fajita Recipe
Original recipe makes 5 servings
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- In a medium bowl, combine Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, chili powder, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Place chicken in sauce, and turn once to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate for several hours.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add chicken strips to the pan, and saute for 5 minutes. Add the onion and green pepper, and saute another 3 minutes. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with lemon juice.
Remember to eat well and drink your water!
