Thus far

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

My first week was a success: I shrank by 0.8 lb!

Refinement--something I've done in the past: Sunday is my day of rest. I need not track anything that day. Knowing that I'll have this break makes it easier to keep up with tracking on the other days.

It felt super-good to deposit $25 in my online savings account at week's end!

Something new: I baked a spaghetti squash on Sunday & combined Trader Joe's marinara sauce with tofu cubes & extra thyme & oregano to go over it. I know some folks love pasta so much that they can't bear to substitute stringy squash for it. But I really enjoy the slightly crisp squash texture--& I love recording that I ate a whole cup of it & seeing just 42 calories on the tracker!

    Me too - I LOVE squash instead of pasta... it's one of my favorite fall and winter dishes. And yours sound super healthy with the tofu! I haven't made any tofu successfully thus far.. I need to keep trying.

How you doing, by the way? The new year treating you all right??

    So great! Good job!!! I have never tried spaghetti squash, because I'm not much of a cook, but it sounds lovely!

    Congrats!! Absolutely with you on the spaghetti squash, though I admit I don't "expect" it taste it like pasta. I expect it to be a yummy alternative.

    Sounds good! I like using my spirolizer and making noodles out of Zucchin, carrots, etc.
