Cooties have hit our home :( Yesterday my husband started not feeling well. Today he is feeling worse and I am doing my best to not catch his cooties.
This morning I made him a batch of chicken noodle soup with lots of veggies. I took a bowl to work for lunch - preventative measures, I hope. It tasted fine, but I can't say it was the most attractive dish. The green veggies did not hold their color very well. I didn't use carrots because my husband is not a fan. On the upside it was a big bowl of soup for 240 calories.
Turns out he didn't care for the soup :( At least I will have plenty of soup if I do get sick. I think I will try putting a couple of servings in the freezer so it doesn't go to waste.
Weigh-in was pretty good this week. I lost 1.4 pounds. That brings my total to 32.2. I have 5 pounds until I am officially half way to my goal. I am looking forward to my progress chart being higher in the "total lost column" than the "pounds to go" column.
Today I was contemplating how much longer my 75 pound goal is going to take to achieve. Yes, I am a little bit impatient, but I do completely understand it is not an overnight process. I am looking at it from more of a curiosity perspective. If I average a pound a week I am looking at almost 10 more months. Okay, stop, I don't think I want to look at it like that - I am truly impatient.
I have averaged just under a 2 pound a week loss. I would love to keep up that pace. Ultimately, I will just do my best and let the pounds fall as they may.
A couple weeks ago I read a good post on someone's blog about mini goals. (I am kicking myself that I didn't bookmark it so I could go back to it and credit that person here - if it was you please comment so I can get back to it.) I haven't been the best about tracking my food the last few weeks. Since I have continued to lose I have been a bit lazy about tracking, but I haven't felt real good about it.
So, I am announcing my mini goal - for the "whole world" to see. Starting today until my anniversary (Sept. 25) I will track my every bite on MyFitnessPal. My current MFP goal is 1550 calories. Not only am I going to track every bite I am going to submit my food diary every night and it will say "under calorie goal."
Has anyone tried the Zoodles I am seeing all over the internet? Noodles made from zucchini. I am a little intrigued. Does anyone have the spiralizer? Recommendations?
Have a great day :)
