So this week, I weighed in early @ WW because I will be busy tomorrow. I lost 4.6 pounds. Normally I would be over the moon. I guess I just expected more. You know watching the Biggest Loser...I want double digits every week. Yes. I know it is not healthy. Yes. I know it all. But that is what I wish would happen.
In reality, I am 14 pounds lighter than I was 2 weeks ago and it is amazing how your body really embraces the difference. You move a little quicker, you have more energy. Just 14 pounds made a difference. I will take it.
So...As I started off saying...Challenge Accepted...guess I should mention what it is.
This week I picked up a basket of fruit and vegetables from an organization called Growing Power www.growingpower.org/
which really encourages healthy food within communities that may not have access to it.
Well, I am not sure if I have ever stated this, but I hate veggies. There are some that I will eat, but I am not always happy about it. I know that fruits and veg are an important part of just staying healthy in general. So I thought, invest in an organization that was really making change and challenge myself to find ways to add more things I need into my daily routine.
So in the basket there were:
Kale (I am pretty sure)
and an unknown squash.
I have been searching for recipes....but I will hopefully have multiple updates on how I used the veggies. If anyone knows how to use micro greens or the unknown squash...please let me know.
