Chicken, tomato, artichoke hearts

Pin It
I found a recipe on Pinterest, but tweaked it a little bit.

The original recipe called for 6 roma tomatoes, but I only used one, and then canned tomatoes :)

What you need:

2 Large chicken breasts, cut to make 4 portions
1 can petite diced tomatoes with garlic
1 diced roma tomato
2 diced garlic cloves
1/2 can of canned artichoke hearts (not the marinated kind, and I saved the other half in the freezer for next time)
3 or 4 fresh basil leaves
Mozzarella Cheese
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 375.

In a small pan, spray with non stick spray. Mix tomatoes, garlic, and artichoke hearts, mix with a small amount of olive oil and top with salt and pepper. Place half of the mixture in the pan.

Place the uncooked chicken on top of the mixture in the pan, add salt and pepper on chicken. Top with the other half of the mixture. Cook for 30 minutes.

Place mozzarella cheese (I did not measure, I used enough to cover the pan) over the pan, and top with the basil leaves. Cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the juices run clear and the cheese starts to brown.

Bad Habits.

Pin It As you may have noticed, I have not posted a blog in quite some time. I have been struggling, pretty bad. I have been between 237lbs-240lbs for 6 weeks. At first I thought it was just a stall...and that stall would not go away, and I have been going back to bad habits.

By bad habits, I mean eating fast food (a small breakfast burrito from McDonald's or a wrap with dressing), coffee every day (not just black coffee with a simple creamer and no calorie sweetener, I mean a large 711 vanilla coffee from the machine, eating wayyyy too many carbs, not enough protein, and not tracking. I even had my first alcoholic drink--a shot of rum.

I feel like I do not have the motivation. I know it's still early in my "honeymoon phase," but I am STUCK.

When I saw my doctor the week after Thanksgiving, he said my weight was okay as long as I am still loosing (even thought I'd only lost 12lbs since the last time I saw him two months prior, and was stuck at that weight for weeks)--but I go back and see him in 6 more weeks, and I'm afraid I will still be the same weight!!!!

I really need to write out a menu for the next week, and start tracking again, but I am lazy, and unmotivated.

My foot is still messed up, I have a spur. I have not been exercising.
