So I’ve ventured onto the path of getting healthy. I blogged about my “attempts” to get healthy over the past year and a half and seeing as I’ve gained 18 pounds over the past 2 years, it’s clearly gone well. That said, I’m going to clain this for the hundredth time, I’ve finally started getting healthy. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’m serious.
So I’ve given up fast food and caffeine these past 72 hours and I can’t tell if my body is dying or running better than ever.

See, that was tweeted on the 20th and I’m still going strong (most days). I think what has made the biggest difference is I started tracking what I eat with the My Fitness Pal app on my phone. I’ve managed to track each day for the past two weeks. I don’t feel like I’m getting any skinnier, but I assume it takes longer than two weeks to lose what took 2 years to gain. That’s not to say that doesn’t keep me from getting depressed about it, but that’s what I’m telling myself.
The best part about getting healthy is I’m finally cooking again. If you follow me on Instagram you saw the FANtastic meal Carl and I grilled over the weekend. We made BBQ chicken wings, lemon pepper zucchini, cucumber salad and cantaloupe. So. Good.
Zucchini is the way to my heart. (As is most desserts, fast food and generally anything edible.) I started out following this recipe from The Pioneer Woman, but quickly realized we don’t have a good lemon zester. So like 90% of the recipes I attempt, I made most of it up. Surprisingly it ended up well. This is recipe goes on my list of favorites, not just for flavor, but because it’s nearly impossible to mess up.
There you have it! Super yummy grilled lemon pepper zucchini. Like I said, the best part of this recipe is you really can just throw in what you want. Either way it’s going to turn out ok. What have you cooked on the grill recently?
