Good morning! Rainy day here, but am looking forward to a relaxing day. Back on track with food and boy do I feel better! Haven't lost all I gained yet, but am making good progress. Hopefully, back to 150 by New Years.

Baking whole wheat bread this morning. I used to bake bread a lot, but stay too busy nowadays. I'm making the most of my time off from work.

Happy Friday, everyone,

R & R Bebbie I love it! Happy Friday to you too! Maintaining in the holiday is an achievement on it's own.

I try to make home made wheat bread but it,s always to heavy. Maybe you have a trick or recipe.

Talking about the weather It fell 20 inches of snow in 12 hours yesterday, and today it's a sunny winter wonderland !!!

Hi Helene, My whole wheat bread recipe actually calls for more white flour (3 Cups vs. 2 Cups) than whole wheat flour so I guess that's why it's not too heavy. Made 2 loaves and gave one to my neighbor. Had a slice toasted with 1 cup of tomato basil soup for lunch. Yummy!

I can't even imagine 20 inches of snow. Here in TN we so rarely get snow and if we do at the most it's 1 or 2 inches.

Judy, Your breakfast cereal mix sounds awesome! I'm going to try that for sure. Love all the Kashi whole grain stuff. They make a great stone ground wheat cracker - I think it's pretty healthy for a cracker. I've done well today too. You already know my lunch; breakfast was 1 C. oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts and a splash of milk. I'm at 600 cals. for the day so far, but hungry so I just made a cup of green tea. It helps.

Thanks Judy. Your recipe is similar to one that I have for a high protein bread. It is a heavy bread though and lots of cals.
I know what you mean about the temptation. That's why I gave one loaf away. Halved the other loaf and froze half just in case I wanted to get carried away. So far, so good. Had roasted squash, onions and tomatoes with a broiled chicken breast for dinner so I had a very good food day yesterday. Feeling good again!

Hi Debbie my Patriots have me hopeing for the best but I am aware that some of those teams in the playoffs are pretty good so we shall see I am gonna watch the other teams this weekend to see what they have or haven;t got ...
If My Patriots play their best I know they can win ..
even in those 3 games they lost early on they only lost by 1 or 2 points 4 points total difference in the 3 losses...
Thanks for the scale isn;t the answer all the time we do know that from experience now ..

Judy, I think the Patriots are going to be in the Super Bowl. Not so sure about my poor Packers. We will find out on Saturday!

There you are, Mia! Good to see you! I'm glad the holidays are over too. I'm not weighing myself for the month of January. I think Judy or someone suggested that here and I think it is a great idea not to be discouraged by the number on the scale.

I look forward to catching up with you and everyone on here!

Hi Mia, I think books are great to get us thinking about making better choices. I bought a few diabetic cooking books on sale. I am not diabetic but they have some good ideas with low-glycemic foods, such as using brown rice and lots of veggies, etc..

BTW, I fell off the elliptical wagon lately and I think of you and how much time you logged in on that.

I feel so lucky to have this site for support in 2013 to help me and keep me focused on my work towards my healthy lifestyle.
