Renewed Soul: Congrats on 48 pounds lost. I am going to try some upper body work on alternate days to walking. My arms need to be tightened up.

Keep it simple. Keep it real.

I had my supper on my plate and checked it with fit day. I removed half the starch and half the meat. I am not hungry but not full either. A nice pot of tea should help with that I want to be at 173 by August 1.

LOW CARB FLAX MEAL BANANA MUFFINS

Only 3.8 net carbs per muffin!!! (remember to minus the fiber to get an accurate net carbohydrate count)
These low carb banana flax bread muffins are versatile and delicious! You can omit the banana and just use banana extract to make them even more low carb! Substitute berries or apples instead of the bananas.



Minutes to Prepare: 15

Minutes to Cook: 20

Number of Servings: 12



Ingredients

2 cups flax meal- packed slightly
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons stevia
4 eggs beaten
1/4-1/2 cup water
1/3 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a medium bowl combine the flax meal, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar and salt
3. Make a well in the dry mix and add in the beaten eggs, water and olive oil or melted coconut oil
4. Stir together the wet and dry ingredients
(it looks wetter than most muffin recipes so don't be worried! AND they are quite brown from the flax meal)
5. Pour the batter into a greased muffin pan
6. Bake at 350į for 20-25 mins (mine only took 20)
7. Cool on your counter and then enjoy!

Serving Size: 12 muffins

Hey guys - I like how last week I checked in on Monday and said, I'm going to set different goals this week because I need to switch it up! and then never came back. Whoops.

I have had a stressful week, and it's only Tuesday. Ah well, these things happen. I ran 8 miles on Sunday. Ate a bunch of crap yesterday. I'm really struggling with my blood sugars these last couple of months, and it's kind of taking it's toll mentally. Actually, it makes me want to eat comfort food, which is the last thing my body needs right now. Blerch

Anywho, I'm trying to get my head out of my a**. I'll stop by again soon. My goal is to figure out what's wrong with my blood sugars. Or at at least if I can't figure it out, don't make it worse by eating stuff that will only make my blood sugars more truculent.

I had a fantastic week last week so I am not expecting much this week. My clothes are fitting better. I am looking forward to getting some new used clothes this fall. About $50.00 will get me a whole new wardrobe.
