The most exciting thing that I have been doing is trying new recipes each week. A great website that I use weekly is Six Sisters Stuff, and it it truly extraordinary! The past two weeks we have tried nothing but new recipes every evening for supper, and so far we have not been disappointed.
We have also saved a ton of money by not going out to eat at least once a week.
I have been able to work out at least three days a week, and I have started to do the Weight Loss program on the elliptical at the gym. I guess that because I am trying to focus on making my lack of cooking and baking skills better, I have not been as focused on tracking my food... still.
My next challenge is to spend less and less on food each week. Since Tony and I have a wedding to be planning, any pennies we can save is worth it. Tonight, we are trying kale with our protein, and hopefully we like it. One day this week we are having a meatless meal, and if that goes well then next week we will try two.
Today, my little boy and I will be making zucchini walnut bread, pumpkin cookies, and finishing our lemon bars. My baking is getting better, and I at least have some sort of grasp on cooking in general. I have plateaued again, but this time, just like last time, I don't really care. I am approximately 4 lbs away from being below 200 lbs, and I feel strong. My muscles are growing. I can't wait for my arms to be smaller, and my belly. They are the only two parts that I want to look better.
Seven weeks left before I graduate. 377 days until I marry my best friend.
