4NOS

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Boss61 threw out the gauntlet a challenge..Only a few of us bit on it.. if you read my previous blog.. no desserts, no seconds, no cheating, no excuses!! 4 NOS!

Today is going to be near 90 with that 100% humidity.. with no desserts, fresh fruit is on the agenda big-time.. I am going out the door here , early to avoid trying to breathe through wet cotton.. that is how it feels here in this weather..

This weekend is the "River Roar" a power boat race on the river a couple miles from here.. The boats go upriver for a few miles and turn around and go upriver out to Lake Huron,, at speeds in the hundreds of mph! We can hear their engines here, indoors with the windows closed and tv and A/C on!!

I am being good, no deserts, only iced tea, salad, fruit and eggs.
I WILL WIN THIS 4NOS CHALLENGE!

    That's quite a challenge. Congrats with your progress.

I hope they don't mince up any fish in the river.

Sorry I can't join your challenge. I only have one nose.

Wow!! It was 86 degrees, 100% humidity and we went out in the morning to trim our hedges.. Thank my Creator for iced green tea!! I have decided to make green tea popsicles.. they are not a dessert, nor a second helping,, just a frozen calorie-free drink. That is not cheating..
I did find my baking soda,, boiled some go-to eggs.. The soda changes eh pH of the water, making the eggs peel easily.

Okay Mark,, it was kind of hard the first night,, we will see today. I drink over a gallon of iced green tea a day so that fills me up. Going to boil some eggs now,, if I still have some baking soda left.

    I drink a lot of ice tea myself. I drink a mix of regular black tea with some constant comment tea, and cinnamon stick tea. It's quite refreshing. Do you think the green tea help with your weight loss or that it makes a difference?Why do you need baking soda to boil eggs?

I got some great snacks form my Spark friends yesterday,, I usually do keep boiled eggs in a zippyloc bag, but I have ot monitor my cholesterol, so I limit ot usually just egg whites.. I will take the egg and the orange offered..Anything I just have ot undress to eat is great. Turning a knob on the stove or having to open a drawer for a knife to cut something is actual cooking,, I might as well get a cook book out and cook!

I love my Cheerios and oatmeal.. they keep my cholesterol numbers down and I supplement with a cheese stick.
Today was a quarter of a Glucerna bar.

Nachos supreme with ground sirloin, fat free frijoles`, diced green pepper and onion are a treat for me, with unsalted chips..

I really love the produce we get at the market in the summer months,, Hopefully we should be getting something local in a month or so..

* Me too. If what I'm doing involves giving up fruit for a time, I will start it in mid-september. I love spring and summer fruits.

I am very hungry right now, looked in teh fridge for something to just grab, nothing easy or healthy jumped out at me(truth be told, if it DID jump, hunger would be the least of my problems) so now i sit here waiting for an idea to magically jump into my brain to prepare something nutritious and quick,, multi grain cheerios, smart balance fat free milk and a banana.
OR soup.. okay be back later, Let the Hunger games begin!!

    LINDA, you will have to be better prepared for the hungries.

Make some "GO-TO" foods so when you walk in the door hungry. You can get something good instead of a nutrient starved kids cereal. DEBS has the great idea, just follow her example[le. It sounds soooo DELISH.
