Countdown To Valentine's- Operation 129 lbs

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I've got one month to go until my birthday (which is just 2 days after Valentine's Day). I've been in a funk lately. Time to pull myself OUT and get back on track. I haven't exercised in over a week!!!

This was my breakfast today: Steel cut oats with added egg whites, pumpkin, banana, and prune...

And here was my dinner: Turkey Meatball Soup (a modified version of this recipe I found on Muscle and Fitness Hers www.muscleandfitnesshers

    egg whites in oatmeal? How do you do that? do you mix it in with cold, uncooked oatmeal or add it while cooking? Your talk of soup has my mouth watering. it is supposed to get really really cold tonight, so I might just go home and make up a batch. There was a black bean soup that looked super-easy on here the other day... emoticon

    This time of year even the most dedicated tend to take a break. I think it is healthy and needed to give our minds and body a break. Once we get back into it, our bodies and minds will quickly get back in shape and enjoy getting back into the routines. So don't be hard on yourself, you have made extremely great strides in health and fitness and you inspire so many of us. God bless

    That dinner looks wonderful!

I miss the egg whites in my oatmeal, but they definitely don't agree with my chemistry.

  We all get in a funk sometimes. It's great that you're attacking it now though. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move forward. You can do it!

    I see lots if ppl that add egg whites to their oatmeal. How do you do it? Cook them first or pour them in while oatmeal is cooking
