Weight Be Gone!

Hi Everyone!  This is my Weight Be Gone Thursday for me.  If you'd like to follow me in my journey you are welcome.  If you'd like to share your own journey feel free to sign my linky below, and I'll come visit you or if you have a great diet recipe that would be appreciated very much. Thank you.  The reason I've started my journey is I had a rude awakening to the reality of life in that I'm not getting any younger, and if I still wanted to lead a fun, and  happy life I had to make  some serious changes. 

First of all, so sorry I'm so late. but here goes anyway!  Okay, it's been a few weeks, and  when I was on vacation got lots of walking in, so hopefully I tightened up some of this flab!  So I weighed in on my own scale so who knows if that's accurate, but I'm hoping so and I weighed in at 250 so I'm holding steady.  Yep, right on the head.  Today being as my granddaughter is staying with me for the week & helping me around the house going to cut this one short & sweet.  Any recipes to share or tell me how you're diet is going if you're on one feel free to share in a comment or sign my linky and I'll come & visit & whoever else wants too!  Thanks!!!

A quick recipe from  Is this not cool or what!?!

Teriyaki and Pineapple Chicken - Lactose Free
Servings: 4

  • 1/4 cup low sodium teriyaki sauce (or 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce with 2 tbsp brown sugar)
  • 1 20-ounce can pineapple rings, plus 1/3 cup juice from the can
  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  1. Whisk teriyaki sauce (or soy sauce, brown sugar) and the 1/3 cup pineapple juice in a large bowl. Add pineapple rings and chicken and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high, or oven to 400°F.
  3. Remove the chicken and pineapple from the marinade and pat dry; reserve the marinade. Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken and pineapple until the chicken is cooked through and the pineapple is marked, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Whisk the reserved marinade and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking, until reduced and thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve the chicken and pineapple drizzled with the sauce.

Review of and Sanford Brands Office Products

These find products you can have to at

So, let me tell you what they are & then I'll show you.  First of all we have: 

Well, instead of writing about these products I decided to do a vlog so you can actually see for yourself what you would be buying.  As I said in the film number one, the Paper Mater InkJoy 700 RT Ballpoint Pen, first of all I had to wrestle with my husband for it because he tried it and all he could say was "smooooooooooth" if you catch my drift.  My granddaughter who is over helping me with some late Spring cleaning...  she loves the highlighters because of the iridescent glow, and "they don't smell".

These are the types of products are good for the home or office.  I personally take care of our household finances as far as balancing our books and paying the bills.  I usually use a  permanent marker when I know this item will be needed when tax time comes around, and I totally hated when I wrote something in pen and then I'd go to highlight it, and it would smudge, and I'd have to start all over again. grrrrrrrr  My husband is a truck driver, and delivers auto parts so he's always looking for reliable pens that writes smoothly and most of all dependable, and what better product to give those students in the family.  I believe the key would here is dependable/reliable.  We don't need pens that only write on certain material or pens that skip or even rip the paper.  These pens are smooth and very easy to write with.  When I would sign my name to an important document whether it be one of my transcriptions or a check or even my income tax papers that I signed not that long ago the Paper Mate Inkjoy 700 RT Ballpoint Pen is the one I want in my purse, and for the hubby the Sharpie Premium Pen for his work shirts so those Bills of Lading get wrote up without any skipping or smudged, and the highlighters he can take one of those and highlight that product that was missing from the load or the one they gave back.  Much more professional indeed.

What's not to like about these office supplies?
These office supplies are purely professional and not your dollar store toys or your average ballpoint pen!
