Citrus Grilled Chicken Breasts

Boy oh boy!  The first week of the year!  Everyone is trying to keep up with their resolutions.  That’s why I just set mini goals for myself.  Today’s goal was to get on the treadmill.  I didn’t make it on the treadmill, but I did take Kona out for a walk.  She had not been on a walk with me in over 8 weeks.  We only walked the loop around my neighborhood. 9/10 of a mile, but  half of it is up hill.  So I am proud of myself.  I also kept within my PP yesterday and today.

I was inspired to make this grilled citrus chicken from one I saw on Bon Appetit.  It was grilled on a BBQ and their chicken was bone-in and skin-on.

Mine was outstanding.

How are your mini goals working for you so far this year?  I have a few long-term goals too.  Like a certain pair of pants that I am wanting to fit into again.  Or the fact that I am attending Fitbloggin in June and want those pants to fit my then.  Right now I am not focusing on the 1 or 2 pound losses or gains.  I will at some point, but just not right now.

Have a great day!
