I've been doing well on my keep on track commitment. Working on using my new nutribullet blender to whiz up the veggies and fruits I would otherwise have an issue digesting. Every morning I drink a mix of greens (all kinds now), protein powder, no fat greek yogurt, berries and a bit of water. That lasts me most days till dinner. I can work a long day at work and not really feel hungry till I get home.
Dinners have been very good, with variants of fillings for soft corn tortillas. Rice, beans, meat, cheese and lots of greens and onions. It's very filling and long lasting. I don't get hungry in the morning until I've been up for a couple of hours. I'll drink my blended breakfast drink then and am good for quite a while.
I'm still wavering on a flare and hernia issues, one day the hernias are bad, the next my joints are shot. So, I got only a few days of good mileage on walking. I'm looking forward to more walks and longer ones this week. I did a major clean out of the garage yesterday - more today to do plus regular housework and get ready for another week of work.
So, down to 241 today. The 13 pounds I gained on the bp med change is coming off, 7 more pounds to go. Slowly but surely.
