Two hours of exercise yesterday, and I lose just .4 I woke up early today, and went in search of low carb shiritaki noodles. I had been reading of them, and had to go to 3 places before I found them. Of course they have soy, which offsets my Coumadin, so I can't have them. I did get some asparagus ( not canned ), and will have some celery my brother bought too. One new vegetable, and I don't eat much celery, which will add to my fiber intake.

I just finished breakfast, another mushroom scramble. Lunch/Dinner is chicken, tomatoes, and onion, cooked in olive oil. I bought lighter olive oil, and it doesn't have as much flavor, which is a good thing. I have spices for flavor. I have to go to the gym to walk, and then I plan to read, and nap till the Pistons game starts, and will watch some of the Pro Bowl later tonight.

Tomorrow is supposed to be 43 ( 5 C ), so nice and warm. I can walk outdoors! Today, it is still below freezing though.. 12 right now. So I am going to huddle in the warmth of my apartment, and spend the day relaxing. As soon as I get back from the gym.

Hope it is warmer where you are. Have a great Sunday. I did see the sun.

    I left a link on your page about the konjac fibre noodles. I prefer them.

Do you eat peanut butter? Peanut butter on celery is amazing!

Lightly boil your asparagus and top it with buttery fried eggs, that will also be so good!

    I like to cook celery in the pressure cooker with carrots, cabbage (I dont' remember if thats a no-no on coumadin.) and either beef or pork. You just put 1 cup of fluid in the bottom (could be broth or water), and fasten the lid on, turn the heat on low, wait for it to start steaming, and put a timer on for about an hour. Then you take it off the heat and wait for it to stop steaming. Be sure not to burn yourself. Its really great with butter on top.

Great job on the weight loss. You are almost to your goal, so things always slow down.

    I tried the soy ones and didn't much like them. There's another kind, though, the original type, that uses a yam called konjac. Been meaning to track them down for a while. Maybe you can find an Asian market somewhere in your vicinity that sells them. The soy-based ones only come wet-packed, but the konjac type has both a wet and a dry version:


Hoping for sun around here too. My driveway needs melted. (That's a bit of Pittsburghese for you! As in: "This shirt needs ironed." "This pot needs washed." Of course, you pronounce "ironed" as "arrned" and "washed" is either "warshed" or "whooshed". LOL!)

    Don't worry about the slow progess opn the bathroom scale. Just keep doing what you know is right. " Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. " (Gal. 6:9) You didn't put on weight overnight, nor will it all come off overnight! God bless you on your journey to a healthy lifestyle.
