No Carb Fajita aka Lettuce Wrap


I am proud to say, I actually shed 5 lbs total.  For me in a week, that is not too  bad at all.   I have no idea how I did it because I got stuck taking the kids from one place to another.  I do wish I had more time to exercise but I did find that if I pushed The Son around in the stroller for at least an hour it burned a good 200+ calories.  Lets just say, I went shopping a lot.  I also spent a lot of money this week too.  What could I say I was tempted.  The Husband has been surprised I haven’t cheated yet.  He even walks around the house with cookies…Tease.  It also doesn’t help that I read food blogs.  It is never ending torment but I can’t help myself.  I love food even if I can’t eat any of it.
This is the other recipe from my post from the other day.  I found some skirt steak and all I wanted was fajitas.  But since I was can’t eat any carbs, I improved and decided to use romaine lettuce.  It wasn’t too bad.  I just wish I was able to eat some salsa and sour cream.  The sacrifices just to be healthy.

How do you get any physical activity with kids?
