Day Three

I forgot and ate Chex for breakfast.  Ah well, shit happens.  The rest of the day I did fine.  I weighed in this a.m. at 162, down from my last weight of 164 eight days ago.  Of course, at one point last week I was back up to about I am totally happy with where I am now.

I made some super delicious banana muffins!  Too bad I never write stuff down so I don't even know exactly what I used.  I can try typing it out, but I can't promise yours would come out as good as mine.

2 sweet potatoes roasted
2 eggs
1 large over ripe banana
1 tsp cinnamon
about 3 tbsp honey
about 1 tsp molasses
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 generous tbsp coconut flour
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Peel the taters, and combine all of the 'wet' ingredients.  In a bowl combine the coconut flour, baking powder and salt. I use a stick blender to combine the wet ingredients until smooth.  Stir in dry ingredients, mix well.  Then add 1/2 cup chocolate chips.  Scoop into paper lined muffin tins, or drop by about a teaspoon onto a cookie sheet.  Bake about 0 minutes or until they feel done to the touch....not too squishy.  Enjoy!

I love that Caroleigh is really excited about taking her lunch to school.  Tomorrow she gets a preview of dinner with Asian cabbage rolls.  New recipe.  I hope she likes them.

Day 1 Thirty Day Challenge

I decided I needed a kick in the ass, so here it is day one...again.  I did okay today.  I decided to do this half way through the day, so we'll ignore the one Hershey Kiss I ate.  Other than that it was one square of dark chocolate as a treat. Everything else I ate was good.  One down 29 to go.  Hopefully it results in getting over this hump and fluctuating between 163 and 167.  I want to get solidly into the 150s again.  Good sleep and getting back to tabata and HIIT should help.  Back to the elliptical two times a week to get things burning.

I am now working out with a partner early mornings on Mon, Wed, Fri.  It will make getting it in easier and won't interfere with the kids' activities.  We are going to be busy this year.
