So far, so good! I am getting pretty serious with this again. Yesterday after work I went grocery shopping and picked up a bunch of better choices. I am stocked up with bananas, carrots, green peppers, fish, pork, asparagus, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, lemons and a parsnip! I remember being really little and my Mom frying parsnips up in a pan but I can't remember if I like them or not. From what I hear it is a mix between a potato and a carrot. On the health factor, I am not sure how good they are for you but I just got one to try. I have NO idea how to cook it! I don't want to pan fry with butter because well duh, lol - I have gotten many ideas though on how to prepare it. I don't have enough to make anything spectacular but I think I will slice the one I have up and bake it in the oven with olive oil and spices. I also got a huge bag of carrots. Michael hates almost every vegetable but said he can eat a carrot and the dogs LOVE them for treats so I told him we all need to start eating better, one carrot at a time!
We got a new Infrared Charbroil grill from my parents for our wedding and we love it! I can't wait to make many meals on it. I wanted to get some chicken when I was at the store yesterday but they didn't have the kind I wanted so I got some lean boneless pork loins to try grilling. Our stove does not exist for the rest of the summer, ha-ha. I can't wait to try grilling asparagus and other vegetables! We had a grill but it was charcoal, I never grilled veggies on that because I don't think I would enjoy the charcoal taste on a veggie.
I am going to weigh-in on Friday, hoping to at least be 1 pound down. I am full steam ahead! I am going to do a basement workout after I post this, it has been a while! I have today off which is nice to get all my things in order. I would go for a walk but it has been raining on and off. I wish this weather would warm up! We have had a funky summer.
Yesterday I was running late in the morning for work so I did not drink my lemon water but I did this morning! For lunch and dinner I had half of a sub from subway. I got it on 9 grain honey oat bread and thought I'd try avocado on it but I did not like it. Any pre-processed avocado spread that can be left out without getting brown freaks me out, in the end I wish I never would have added it on my sub. It didn't taste right to me! Who knows what crap is in it to keep it fresh. But that also goes for 99% of anything nowadays! I am not sure what I am going to have for lunch or dinner today. I think I might have a grilled pork loin with some veggies!
I got about 4 inches cut off my hair last week! You can't even notice, lol - But it feels so much better, got all that dead weight cut off! I wish it were that easy when it comes to losing weight "oh I just need 4 inches trimmed off my belly, thanks!"
