This week I am just trying to keep logging my food and exercise and get used to this whole new way of being accountable. I am trying really hard to not focus on the scale.

I want to change my daily habits to reflect healthy living in everything I do. I hope to enjoy the process.

Well, I'm taking a break this week from working out because my husband is switching to nights, and I want to be here to take care of him since change is especially hard on his MS. BUT! I DID try out a new healthy recipe and it was quite a hit with us. Even my husband liked it and he usually hates anything with vegetables in it. So, here's what I've tried in the last week that's worked for us (all of these can be found on sparkrecipes.com):

Dinner #1:

Baked summer vegetables
Skinny Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Mom's Meatloaf

Dinner #2:

Low Fat Sweet and Sour Chicken

Dessert (which has lasted all week since we only eat 1 piece at a time):

The Perfect LOW FAT Pumpkin Pie

I hope you guys find as much success with these as I had. I feel it's necessary to also add that I'm terrible with cooking, but even I got these to turn out terrifically! emoticon

nope, i used good old Mrs T's frozen potato and cheese ones, but they're so good you might think they were just made. i'd love to make more foods completely from scratch, but i'd need a visit from the kitchen fairy to give me my dream counters and tools, lol. mabee one day after i win the lotto or inherit millions from so mysterious grand-uncle who was always fond of me... emoticon

later today i'm going to use my resistance band to work on my upper body. i'm doing two upper body sessions and one core session this week.

today i made piroggis (sp?) with sautéed mushrooms and onions. they are low in calories (180 for three peroggies) and used olive oil to cook the veggies. they are super filling and taste great. it's 34g of carbs for one serving so be careful not to go crazy with them. but my hunny loved them and wants me to cook them again, lol. i'll be sure to let you know about my curry when i make that too.

Tracy, Thanks for letting me know how to use applesauce instead of oil. I had no idea that one would use the same amount. I also didn't know it was that much better for us. You are so smart. I am curious to try it now. I usually bake a cake in heart shaped cake pans for the children on Valentine's Day. I'll try it then. Cool!

sounds great you guys. i need to work on my upper body as well. i'm planning on making an indian dish call alloo goobi (i think that's how you spell it). if i recall, it a vegitarian curry dish with cauliflower, potatos, and onions. if i have the time to try a second one i might try to make something medditerranian (very healthy foods). i'll let you all know how it goes and share the recipies after i've tried them out.

this week i want to focus on nutrition and strength training.

for the nutrition aspect, i'm challenging everyone to try out a new healthy recipe and share with the class. emoticon i'd love to hear what people come up with and how they and anyone they share it with liked it.

for strength training, pick a body part that you need extra work on and focus on that for two days (with a break in between). we all know how important strength training is, so don't skip out on it!

good luck and i hope to see lots of posts on sunday. remember, the more people who participate, the better our discussions will be and the more fit everyone will become.
