just sayin’ … I’m still here and on track

Sunday, July 07, 2019

I haven’t been blogging but I’m right on track … I am doing it!!!

The scale is inching down … and I am keeping Elvira my evil twin in check.

I am trying a more … gentler kinder approach to RE-losing the weight. I’ve beaten myself up. Chastised myself. Screamed and yelled. Cried. But now I am doing my best to … trust myself. Enjoying the journey.

Monday I will increase my walking time to 40 minutes 5x a week.

I’m ensuring that allll the foods that contribute to losing weight are in the house.

I'm looking for salad dressing ideas???

I tried my hand at making pickled spicy asparagus. Not a winner. Any thoughts???

I would love some guidance on purchasing produce keepers … berries turn to mush way too quickly.

We took Saturday and Sunday off to rest our bodies. Monday starts the beginning of taking the old texture off our bedroom walls. I am soooo proud of Hubby. We have stuck to our home improvement goals.

I’m committed to sticking to my … self-improvement goals as well.

How's things going for you???

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

    WATERMELLON does pretty much what I do w/berries. Good advice. Strawberries are my 'thing'. I clean those as I eat them, and if I have them longer than 3 days, I hull and freeze them.

    Good for you sticking to your personal and home improvement goals!

    Here's to more success.

    Way to keep at it! emoticon

    I'm not much of a salad dressing fan or of salads for that matter. I tend to simply use EVOO and balsamic vinegar or lemon juice on salads when I do have them. I also add olives to them like OKM.

    I am continuing the DNRS work to rewire the neural pathways. Seeing indications of improvement in regard to the food sensitivities that have developed in the last 4 years.

    I buy bags of frozen mixed berries (I like the mix with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries -- no strawberries which I don't think freeze well).

    If I buy fresh raspberries I need to eat those soon . . . they don't keep.

    Blueberries do . . .

    I like a salad dressing made with maple syrup, grainy Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and walnut oil . . . but that's for special occasions!! Mostly I do just buy salad dressings: Paul Newman Thai is a fave and I also like President's Choice jalapeno avocado!!

    I make an Italian Ranch dressing... 2 parts avocado oil, 1 part apple cider (or any other) vinegar, Italian spices, dollop of mayo and Dijon... shake it!

    I pretty much use frozen, organic berries -- mostly blueberries & mangoes for morning smoothies.

    Pickled & spicy foods don't agree with my GI tract but I used to buy pickled, spicy asparagus at a local grocery (HEB) for lady who was like my second mom. She said they were better than the homemade ones she remembered.

    Keep up your momentum.

    Flavored white balsamic vinegar works for me. I like white better than regular.
    Try pickle juice, I've used it.
    Also OKMs' comment= dry spices.

    Someone told me to keep berries at room temp and not in the fridge. I haven't tried it but makes sense.

    I just make a simple vinaigrette, using more delicious vinegar and/or lemon juice than the recipe calls preference.
    I make a cup or so and it lasts for a week or so in the fridge.
    Good job on sticking to it, my friend.

    Things are going well here in the heartland. I don't care much for salad dressings, BUT... I use what amounts to "dry" dressing, with fresh ground black pepper, and oragano leaves, and seven small olives to provide the oil. Tastes wonderful, and doesn't have the vinegary thing that turns me off.

    Making your own to suit your own tastes is the deal.
