First, delish dinner.
I made some tofu as per this recipe - www.dailygarnish.com/2012/03/crispy-
It was yummy. There was only juuuuuust enough of the spice mix to cover my tofu, so I would make more next time.
The tofu was cut up and served over brown rice. To that I added bokchoy microwaved with some teriyaki sauce. THEN I added my secret weapon.
It comes in a bottle that looks like this. And it is amazing! It added so much flavour to my dinner. I had to put the bottle down and walk away, coz I was having it off the spoon.
Anyways, it was amazing, however I am aware you probably had to be there.
I've been doing some more shrinking. These jeans didn't button when I got them a few weeks ago. They were $15, I took a risk and got the only size left, which was a 14 (usually a 16)). While I don't believe in buying clothes to shrink into, I do believe in bargin shopping! Today I was feeling low about my less than stunning weigh in for the month and thought I would see if these jeans fit yet. I certainly couldn't feel any worse! AND THEY BUTTONED! Not only that, but I can SIT DOWN IN THEM!
Suck on that, scale!
There is still a little cake shelf (it is bigger than a muffin top, and it's where I keep my cake! Name that comedian!) but they fit! Hopefully they will look better in the coming weeks.
Edited to add this side by side. 5kg lost and 6.3kg lost

Weight lost Ė 600g Ė I canít believe I have worked so hard and only lost just over a pound! (This morning I weighed in at 81.1)
Total weight lost: 6.3kg
Lowest weight: 81.0
Exercise minutes - 1010 minutes Ė Goal met!!
Days exercised - 19-20/31
Average workout time - 52 minutes
5+ a day: Most days I met this goal. I forgot to track some days, but it looks like I got 3-5 servings almost everyday, and some days I got 6 servings! I like this goal and am going to continue it next month!
My weight goal was to break 80kg. Well, didnít do that! That is now my goal for next month.
I would be lying if I said I wasnít disappointed at my lack of weight loss. 600g is not much at all. My clothes are fitting better, which is nice, but we all like that pretty number on a scale! Also, if I see another board post about ONLY losing 1lb in a week I'ma punch someone. Try losing a pound a month, then talk to me about how unmotivating your results are. Seriously.
April goals tomorrow!

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
1010 fitness ninutes as of this afternoon! Wooooohoooo! Might be moving Sunday weights to tomorrow so I can spend Sunday with the boyfriend, so I may get another 40 minutes in before the end of the month!
5k run, feeling strong and happy. Thanks, strength training! Now I actually enjoy running!
There is a mega (OK medium) hill (OK, slope) on my running route and I usually stop at the bottom and walk up or run halfway and give up. Today I ran up the WHOLE DAMN THING! Can I get a whoop whoop! Sure, I stopped at the top to catch my breath, so what? I just took it slow and steady, to the beat of Sweat by Snoop Dogg. Seriously, great slower paced song!
It's Friday! Which is good, because the emoticon shows how I looked when the kids left this afternoon. Miss Bubble needed some quiet time.
I have started to play music in class, during writing and art time, and to give the kids a timer for tasks (eg, they have until the end of the song to clean up and be seated on the mat). This was a goal for the term!
The sun was out and it was warm today. Apparently we are getting a storm after the weekend, so I am enjoying the weather while it lasts, hence the run!
Tomorrow is my monthly wrap up, stay tuned and hope that the scale decides to drop 1.1kg overnight!

My kids made me this to say sorry for having lots of telling offs lately. There was a card inside, signed by all the kids, saying that they hoped this would show me that they were sorry and would try harder to be good and have less telling offs. They are such cool kids, they just do silly things sometimes, as children tend to do!
How sweet is that!
