Day 6 of The Spark Solution

Slept in today to get some more rest. Had the left over breakfast cookie instead of the recommended biscuits and gravy with sausage. I donít care for sausage or gravy no matter how itís fixed. Did 35 minutes of my Biggest Loser Walk with dumbbells and medicine ball dvd then stretched. Made the curried tuna salad sandwich for lunch again, since I didnít have the ingredients I needed for the Greek meatballs. Went roller skating for 2 hours this afternoon.

Made the macaroni and cheese for supper. I have never made it from scratch before. I have no intentions of doing it again. I thought it would have a really strong flavor, since it had onions, garlic, mustard, and hot sauce, but cardboard probably has more flavor. It was extremely bland with a grainy texture due to the bread crumbs. Blech. No one else would eat it, so Iím stuck with the left overs. After dinner we did our mile walk around the neighborhood. Thank goodness I get an evening snack!

I still felt weak most of the day, but a lot better than yesterday. Maybe another good nightís sleep and Iíll be back to normalÖhopefully.

Overall, another successful day.

    I totally hear you about the mac and cheese tasting like cardboard or worse. my own mac and cheese recipe is over the top with flavor and is incredibly low cal. Here it is and if you ever choose to try it let me know on this blog.
Mac and Cheese with Dill Pickles
2 cups skim milk cheese
3 tbsp. cheese whiz
1can tuna in water
3/4 cup whole wheat macaroni cooked in boiling water for 5 mins.
6 large dill pickles or equivalent smaller ones cut up into little chunks
How to
Heat the sk. milk in microwave for about 10 mins. with the cheese whiz in it. Stir so the cheese whiz is mixed well. Add the tuna after cutting it up in the can. Don't forget to drain off the water and give it to the dog or cat. Add the macaroni and dill pickle chunks. Stir and in an oven proof container bake it at about 350 degrees for at least an hr. If you have lots of time bake it at a lower temp for longer as the milk tends to look curdled though it is not. Oh I forgot sprinkle about a 1/4 tsp. of pepper into it. This is my go to comfort food and I eat about a third at a time. Tasty!!!!
There are 360 cal. in one third of this recipe

  Great cartoon!

Hope you're feeling like yourself by tomorrow. You are accomplishing for someone who isn't feeling terrific.

Canned diced tomatoes had new life to macaroni and cheese, if the macaroni seems dry add the appropriate amount of juice from the tomatoes to moisten.

    I gotta say if I ate all those items in one day the scale would be up 5 lbs !! Mac n cheese always puts weight on me. Good luck with it.

    Great to hear it was a successful day, even though the food didn't taste good at all. If I don't like something, I just can't eat it, you are stronger willed than I, for sure!

I hope you have a beautiful Sunday, my friend!
