Hey guys. Not much is going on with me. Thought I'd say something...it's been a few days since I posted.
My weight is still the same - but I'm starting to see some definition in my calves from the stairs that I do everyday at work. This week I'm doing three sets of six flights. Whew. I'm not as out of breath as I used to be - I can get up four or five flights without breathing too heavily. the last flight or two are always the hardest - but two weeks ago I was struggling with just four flights. NSV!
I wish I could use the less expensive Costco ones but I have to have the NO SALT variety. Wonderful brand is the only one I have found. At our local market they're $12.99/lb and at Stop and Shop $8.99, so I was really happy to see the Christmas Tree Special for $5.99.
I'm still working on the rainbow. Today I had:
Orange - peach
Red - apple, tomato, red onion
Green - arugula, broccoli, scallion, cucumber, avocado
Yellow - corn
Blue - blueberries
White - dates
At least I have that part down. It's so much easier and more fun to add healthy foods than to cut portions, unfortunately.
Yes Kathy it is more fun to add healthy foods than to cut portions I am a foodie too I find myself eating too much healthy food every now and then so portions do matter not as much though as other types of foods I couldn't find the salt free pistachios so I bought a small packet of lightly salted normally 5.99 on sale for 3.99 Hugs Judy
