I'm Going to Share More Recipes

Saturday, October 08, 2011

I cook a lot! I love batch cooking because as a single girl, it means I can eat elaborate meals and not feel bad about wasting food. Buying a bunch of cilantro so I can use a tablespoon of it in one dish? No way! I've been a vegetarian for seven years, and I work hard to keep it interesting and not become one of those people who relies on garden salads and french fries.

So, on that note, I'm going to try to share more of my cooking with you!

I have just added a recipe to SparkRecipes. I cooked a pot of Curried Coconut and Chickpea soup last night, and I'll eat the four portions over the next four days (starting with dinner today). If you'd like to try this very simple vegetarian soup, check out the recipe at:

I'm Thankful for...

... teeny-tiny pants!

I went shopping today for new winter boots and decided to try on some jeans at Old Navy. I'm kind of relying on Old Navy jeans through my weight loss as they're so cheap that I don't feel bad buying a pair and shrinking out of them a month later. (I only do this with one pair at a time- I'm not that wasteful!)

I needed the SIZE TWO!


Yeah, Old Navy has a size one AND a size zero, so it's not like it's the smallest size in the store, but that was pretty cool!

I didn't end up buying them because they only had them in really trashy washes (faded creases all across the pelvic area... no thanks!), but I'll bet that by the time I go shopping again (not a big hobby of mine) I'll be down to the size one! Hopefully they'll have something dark and simple in a size one (short)!

    congrats on fitting into a smaller size! I have the hardest time finding jeans without "stuff" all over them (whiskering, fading, etc.)!

I Just Ate a Pack of Twizzlers (Well, Nibs)

Thursday, October 06, 2011

And I don't care!

I've been eating at the low end of my range all week and I wanted some licorice! I've already eaten (in some form) bananas, tomatoes, carrots, shallots, onions, garlic, pears, spinach and bell peppers today. One pack of licorice is not going to kill me. And my weekly average will still be in the very safe zone (even if these pushed me 50 calories over my recommended daily limit).

It's all about balance.

And candy.

    I agree, sometimes you really do just need it! Besides, you didn't gain it all in a day, you won't lose it all in a day, and one tiny slip up won't kill you so long as the rest of the time you're on the straight and narrow!

Good job on not letting it blow your momentum too much.

Monday Night Workouts

Monday, October 03, 2011

I always dread Monday night workouts... thinking I won't be able to do it, thinking I should stay home, wondering how I'll survive ninety minutes...

And then when it's over, I think, "Hey, that wasn't so hard! And now I've got six days until I have to do it again!"

It's not that bad!

    We both got through it. I believe if I start the week off on a good note then it will end on a good note. Let's get these Monday nite workouts in.

Why Be CONSISTENT Using Spark? See My Weight Graph!

Saturday, October 01, 2011

It's an evil, evil bow-tie of fat!

Clearly I let my success get the best of me and got super-lazy and just stopped tracking entirely.

But I'm back in the swing of things now, one pound away from my lowest weigh-in last year!
