Nothing much to report! This week went well except for a bit of over eating yesterday. I made soda bread for the first time and we ended up eating half of it in one day! Oh well. I just had salad for lunch and an apple for dinner, so I didn't go over my calorie limit. No damage done! It was great, except it wasn't completely cooked. Still a bit soft in the middle even though I cooked it for another 10 minutes. The oven must be cold. I put it on 200 degrees like the recipe said, but it still wasn't hot enough. It was a bit heavy, too. I made it out 100% whole wheat flour, so I guess that's why. The recipe said that you cannot make it completely out of whole wheat flour, because it makes it too heavy to rise properly. Half whole wheat and half white flour is the way to go if you want the whole wheat taste. I only had the whole wheat stuff, so I used that. But it still tasted great! I love making bread and I think I will try to make some every weekend! Next week I will use the left over whole wheat flour and make a traditional loaf out of yeast. I will cook it at 220 degrees for an extra 5-10 minutes and see how it goes! I didn't work up the courage to buy scales and weigh myself this week, though! Next week, maybe! I did lose some weight according to the gym scales and my jeans are still loose, so things are going well.
I think the medication is working, but I still have fear of weighing myself. Oh well. I don't have to weigh myself, I guess. I will track my progress through how my clothes fit and by weighing myself on the gym scales for the time being. Since things are going so well, I decided to reward myself with a huge pile of pancakes tomorrow morning!
Until next week! Bye!
