Some good news this week....
First week of the change in my eating habits and the scales, this morning, showed that I had lost 3 pounds. I was very happy :-)
As a visual ... here is 3 pounds of butter out of my fridge.
Just imagine those babies melted in a pool round your feet. Not a pretty image !!
This past week, of being on my 'I'm Not On A Diet', went pretty well.
I made sure I had my daily fix of 7 servings of fruit and veges.
I ate things like shrimp in a cream sauce. However, I just had a SMALL portion and loaded up the rest of my plate with salad.
I kept myself hydrated, which tends to be a bit of a struggle with me.
I think it also helped, that I ate food that had a decent amount of fibre in it....cereals, whole wheat bread, etc.
My husband does not like whole wheat pasta, so I snuck the fibre in by using this range of pasta.
It has 6 grams of dietary fibre, calcium and it tastes just like ordinary pasta. :-)A great idea if you want to increase the amount of fibre in your family's diet and you have a hubby and kids that turn their noses up at whole wheat products. Sometimes it's good to be sneaky!!
I also found these, at the supermarket, this weekend. They taste really good and are going to be ideal for a snack at school.
Dark Chocolate Almond is my favourite !!
I'm still rather limited to what I can do, exercise wise, because of my knee. However, I have managed some walks, wearing my knee brace. I'm going to increase my distance, as my knee allows. At the moment it's sort of a speed limp. :-)
The other good news is that we got some much needed rain and snow this weekend.
The trees and bushes looked really pretty with a light dusting of snow. Unfortunately it had melted by later in the afternoon...
I just found out that a blogging friend of mine, Kat at Sunshine and Lemonade is in need of prayers and many good thoughts. Her husband Michael had an aneurysm this weekend. He has had surgery and he is now stable.
Please keep Kat, Michael and their two girls, Katie and Madalyn in your prayers and thoughts.
