I also wanted to quickly share what I made for dinner tonight. I tried Jamie's Zucchini Turkey Burgers ( recipe in Featured Recipes) and they came out SO good! Here is a photo pre- cooking.

This is one yam, sliced into "french fries" and then I stuck them on a foil lined baking pan. I drizzled 2 tbsp of olive oil and added salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and all spice. I didn't measure- I just did an even dusting of each. I stuck them in the oven for about 25 minutes and they came out great. They were on the softer side (in comparison to real french fries) I'm assuming because they aren't actually fried, but it's definitely a comparable alternative!
Lastly, I just want to document that my goal (short term... my long term goals are listed in one of my first posts) over the next two months is to hit the gym 6 days a week, and <<gasp>> not drink more than 1-2 drinks, once a week. ( I would love to say NO drinking for 8 weeks, but I'm trying to be realistic here...) This is going to be a challenge because I LOVE having a glass of wine with dinner or a beer at the pool on a sunny AZ day, but I think it will be worth it. We have a week long trip to San Diego planned in exactly 8 weeks, and I can't wait to see how much I can tone up by then! Do you have long and short term goals? I would love to hear!
