Week Four of the Simple Diet
Monday, February 27, 2012
Well I made it thru another week. I have to admit that I did not follow the plan. I had shakes and entrees, but I also ate other foods, nuts and dried fruit. I needed to eat the prunes
. I did get in about 60 minutes of exercise mon-fri.
Friday we went to the Oyster & Beer Fest. I ate lots of oysters they were raw and I had lots of beer. It was an overnight trip for us. We had the breakfast buffet in the hotel. Did some shopping on the way home to replenish the fruit and veggies and entrees. When I got home I made a big pot of collard greens. I used two large onions and two bulbs of garlic. I dice and add the garlic after the greens are done. That way we get all the benefits of the garlic. The greens last us a few days. I have them with my entree. Did not work out Saturday. Sunday had to work the coffee bar at church so from 7:30-10:15 on my feet walking back and forth making coffee. That was my workout. Took my morning shake with me to church. Not much appetite on Sunday so I only ate a bowl of the greens. Today I got up early had a shake, messed around on the computer for a long while (too long). I did my exercise, the 2 mile Super walk with body boost cable; I did the last 10 min of the 1st mile a second time to make it 45 minutes. Also did 20 minutes of Zumba. I then had a second shake with an apple. I have to take my mom to physical therapy. When I get back I will have a salad. I need to do laundry and some light house work....we'll see about that. Any way I plan to do better with my eating this week. I lost 1lb this last week, happy I did not gain.
