I lost 3 pounds this last week and my man stayed the same. I am SOOO close to "Onederland" I can almost taste it.... feels like it's taking so long to get there but it will be so SAWEET when I do!! I loved the "learning list" that Sam came up with over at Believe in yourself... the main two being: 1. Believe that you can do it. 2. Don't Stop.
Okay.... I think those two things will be my new Mantra!!
Believe that you can do it, and Don't Stop!!
And I tell ya... this week, for the first time in 24 weeks, I felt a little food deprived. I let myself, for a time, feel sorry that I'm not eating out and having fancy breakfasts at IHOP or having more fun lunches with friends and for a day or two, I felt a little pity party.
BUT that's OVER now because I feel SO much better than I ever did!! Goodbye to all that is old and negative and sorrowing... and HELLO to my new healthy, happy, positive future!!
We've been doing a lot more on the BBQ this summer. Here is some chicken we did with some friends and this time, I just used Walden Farms BBQ sauce and it was simple and yummy! My daughter made that big salad... doesn't it look fresh and good?
I made cauliflower pizza again... yum! (see recipe in a previous post) And here is a taco salad where I just put my taco meat (lean ground beef & ground turkey breast with a little taco seasoning and tomato sauce) on a bed of lettuce with some veggies and sprinkled a little Walden Farms Ranch dressing on top. I did this same thing again with a little less meat, and added some low fat cheese. I enjoyed it!
Here I added my Orange Sauce to my chicken and then put it on top of my sauteed zucchini and mushrooms. And, we are loving the Kale chips. Here is the Kale all cut with a little olive oil on them and sea salt, ready for the oven (at 350 degree for approx. 15 min.)... they come out so tasty and with a crunch that kind of melts in your mouth!
Here is to another week of BELIEVING THAT WE CAN DO IT, and NOT STOPPING!!!
