I fell down. Ha! Way to go me! I was on my walk earlier and we were talking and I just went down. I am surprised it hasn’t happened sooner! There was a guy coming towards us when it happened on his bike and when he got to us he said “well that was interesting!” & I said “I bet!”
I don’t have much to say today. I weighed myself this morning to see if I working out in the evening vs. the morning gave me better results and it’s the same! So I don’t think it really matters just as long as I get it in! I also STILL have my heat rash. It sucks!
I made a stir fry today. It came out very good! It will last me 5 days which is awesome! Each serving is 1 cup and is 192 calories!! How cool is that? I had a bowl today and then that is what I’ll eat for the next 4 days in place of my lean cuisines. I didn’t use any salt because the soy sauce I used has enough sodium and I did not use butter or oil! I made all of it with my 0 calorie cooking spray!
::::MARILYN'S HEALTHY STIR FRY RECIPE::::
Makes 5 - 192 calorie; one cup servings
What you will need:
- Family Dollar brand 0 calorie cooking spray – 0 calories
- 3 cups of COOKED white instant rice - 550 calories
- 7 tablespoons of soy sauce – 70 calories
- 1 medium green pepper – 16 calories
- 1 cup pea pods (cut ends off) – 60 calories
- 1 medium bouquet of broccoli – 60 calories
- 2 cups of sliced stir fry beef – 190 calories
- 1 medium yellow onion – 44 calories
- Garlic powder
- 1/4 cup water
Directions: Get instant rice started. Spray pans with cooking spray. Take stir fry meat and cook in a separate pan on medium. You don’t want to cook it on high. You want to have a puddle of meat juice mixture. Cooking on high will make it evaporate. Season meat with pepper and garlic powder and add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Cook until done while getting veggies ready. Cut veggies up to desired size and put in pan. Add 3 tablespoons of soy sauce to veggies along with some water so they don't burn. Over a period of time you may add up to 1/4 cup of water if need be. Cook until desired crunchiness / softness. Once veggies are to your liking; add the meat and mix in. Then add the done rice and mix in the last of your soy sauce. There you go! Yummy, yummy in my tummy! Next time I want to add mushrooms!
As you know from my picture I walked today. I did the treadmill last night. I don’t think I’ll do the treadmill today. I am sore and tired! I hate it! I would do the treadmill if I hadn’t walked. I figure doing one is better than none!
Picture of stir fry. Each bowl has one cup!
Cool pictures I got from our walk today!
