Back to business. To be honest, I didn't weigh in last week. I haven't been feeling my best, I don't know if I hit a plateau, but my heart wasn't fully in it. I didn't eat as well as I should have, and I was worried about my foot again, I even googled stress fracture symptoms. It's so weird, some days it feels totally fine, other days I'll wake up and it's bugging me. Jill wrote the other day how she found out that she should be running on her bad heel, in order to strengthen the muscles of her foot. Which I find interesting. Why is it that I feel sore after I haven't been active for a couple of days, but once I'm back at it, I feel fine? Is it because I'm using my muscles, and not losing them?
At any rate, I'm back on the salads, no more chocolate. I love salads, but I really dislike making them. Usually I look at what's in the fridge, and throw it all in a bowl, like this one, which was a bagged romaine mix, tossed with "rainbow mix" from Wegmans, which is a mix of shredded red cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots, I added a little cheddar, and slices of roasted chicken. It was really good, but I would rather have had the pizza bagel I made Eliza for her lunch. What do you add to your salads? I'm in a bit of a salad rut.
Weighed in this morning, and I thought the scale would have read higher than it did, so I was happy. Since we started this challenge, I'm down four pounds total, with ups and downs along the way. I have two weeks to drop those last six....so we'll see how that goes : )
This week's factoid is courtesy of Kathie Lee and Hoda....they had a segment this week on losing belly bloat. The guest said one way to avoid it, is by being careful about when you eat fruit, you should always eat it on an empty stomach, like at breakfast or as a snack. Because of the natural sugars, fruit is digested quickly. But if you eat it after a regular meal, the sugars get trapped in your belly behind the other foods, the sugar ferments, turns to gas, and your belly pops out. Gross.
Hope everyone has been faring well in your busy lives, have a great week : )
