The FitDay website was down for at least a couple hours today. I was so glad when I was able to log on! I really needed to post for accountability.
Debbie how was your anniversary celebration? I want to know what celebratory meal you enjoyed since you had a well-earned pass to eat whatever you wanted.
Jenai, wow, girl, you did it! Cheese ravioli with sauce and ground beef at 489 calories! Well done! Soup's on! OMG, the broth tastes soooo good. My black soybean substitute for the lentils still has a few hours to get as tender as I like. I checked and the beans are absorbing the flavor of that yummy broth. DH likes my idea of dividing the soup in half and putting fresh baby spinach in one half and cooked kale with it's juices in the other half. I saw the picture of the soup--thanks for that.
Nyda, remember to look at each day as a clean slate and a fresh start. I'm so sorry--I understand the depression is such a common problem and that many people do gravitate toward food. My little sister does that. OMG, depression AND migraines! My heart goes out to you! Well, you certainly did have a very nutritious and yummy supper last night.Remember to give yourself credit for all your accomplishments. You did great on water, lots of logging and posting, and getting in 9000 steps yesterday.
OK, so this morning I made myself exercise before allowing myself on the computer. It wasn't a whole lot--but I promised 5 minutes last night and accomplished 10. Probaby could have done more, but I did get my heart rate up. I'll make a mini-promise of adding one minute per day and see if I can do more. Baby steps, I know, but that's how I roll sometimes. I may even try to get in another 10 minute exercise session later on today.
I'm experimenting in the kitchen still. In addition to cooking the soup today, I just baked a loaf of homemade low carb zucchini bread with zucchini from DH's garden. I'm trying to adapt a full carb recipe. Looks pretty still in the glass baking dish and my son is looking forward to trying it--I didn't tell him it's low carb--might scare him from trying it. LOL
Tomorrow I'll be experimenting with low carbing a peach crisp recipe because both DH and I bought more peaches yesterday after both of us failed to notice we still had several in the fridge. DH also bought blueberries, not noticing we had a pint in the fridge, so I'll toss maybe a cup of those in with the peaches. (Can you tell our fridge is overstocked?) Instead of the mixture of flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter on top, I'm going to try vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, butter, and ground almonds. We shall see...
I'll share the baked goods recipes if they come out well.
