    She's totally cute and appears to be just as smart. Very photogenic. I can see a future for her in the health care industry as a medical assistant. LOL.

    We are so in the same place sister. I have been very intentionally off plan lately but the immediate gratification of the junk simply does not feel as good as I do when I take care of myself. Time to get back on track - both of us!

~ Day 12 - 14: Primal Blueprint challenge: food & exercise update ~

Sunday, April 22, 2012

...so everything was going fine until I bought the 3 Milky Way w/caramel & cookies and cream bars! emoticon... I caved, I admit it!... and I know that it is all emotional. But I offer no excuses, just resolve, to start over... tomorrow!

... as I am sitting here eating my air-popped pop corn I am planning my menu for next week and starting to do some batch cooking.

This is what's on the menu for next week:

- taco flavored taco meat served on a bed of romaine lettuce
- zucchini lasagne, loaded with veggies
- steamed red kale w/bacon

I am finishing out the 21-day challenge, but will start it all over again with the team. I have a little over a week to go, but I am modifying it starting tomorrow because I am going to do a 2 week Primal/paleo/SB kind of thing where I will not be eating any fruit or starchy veggies, including sweet potatoes, so that I can monitor more closely what I am eating.


DAY 14: 4/22: Exercise:

AM: Spinning - 20 minutes
PM: TBD

Day 13: 4/21: REST

DAY 12: 4/20: Exercise: walked home from work (1 hour, 5 mins)



Tomorrow is Mesocycle 1: Week 4, then on to Mesocycle 2!

~ Dee ... Enjoy your Sunday emoticon

    I want to eat well every day and have good intentions but don't. I am doing better with my exercise though.

    We all cave to our cravings from time to time. Not to worry! Just pick up and start anew!

    Don't let a small stray get into the way of your overall goal. You are in good company. Rejoice that you have gotten back on plan. That is what life is really all about.

Sounds like you are ready for the week! Have a good one Turk! Carol

    You look pretty good thowin' that tire around.

Way to stay with it - the off-plan incidents are just bumps in the road. I like your philosophy of just get back at it - learn what you can and let it go. We can only change the present and the future.

    Way to go Dee - those muffins used to look delicious - really no taste for them anymore, but the soup, absolutely.

Always used herbs and spices, but have found I usually double what the recipe calls for and/or add additional nowadays.

Food is tasting so much better.

Stay the course - you gotta think you are getting healthier even if the scales not moving .... yet.

    Good for you! and you know I must be coming along too cos I look at them and they don't appeal, now had I been there and sometimes even if they don't look so good I would have eaten them. I must say been doing better.

I am still amazed at you not losing with what you eat. Where are the cal numbers coming from. But you will figure it out, as I will.

Having co. sat. informal supper just 3 of hubbys sisters coming to visit. One is gluten free and I am so a reg. meal person so thinking what can I make. Was thinking a huge garden salad, and chicken breast.... or a crockpot full of fricot but that is more a cool weather meal. Fricot _ chicken and potato soup really.

So going to browse for some ideas today, would love to make something out of the ordinary.

Have a super Friday!!!
