I never really knew what that expression, "There aren't enough hours in the day!" meant until now. I can't believe the week is over - it's been crazy-busy on my end.
I did weigh in last Saturday, and my loss held steady! I think that the doctor's scale was very generous, and while I'd like to think that I lost a couple of extra pounds, I'll save it for a rainy day when I have a tiny loss and to add a little a somethin' somethin' to it.;-)
Food has been great - I've been trying all sorts of new recipes, like:
- lentil barley stew
- a new scrambled tofu recipe
- spaghetti squash*
Next week, I'm going to try a black-bean burrito recipe that a friend gave me. I'm really enjoying experimenting with new recipes - I'd forgotten how much I love cooking. I've also taken a steady interest in this, because the baby will soon be eating what I eat - and I want it to be very healthy.
I still stink at exercise, and finding time to do it. I have every good intention of getting it - but by the end of the day, I'm just too exhausted. So, in a valiant effort to change this, I thought I'd go in the morning today. I packed all my stuff last night, made the baby's bottle in advance, and went to bed at a reasonable hour. Well, doesn't hubby forget to set the alarm? Grrrrr.
So, my goal for this week is to shake my booty doing something three times. It could be an hour-long walk. Or running up and down the stairs of my apartment building, for all I care. Three times is totally reasonable, and I should be able to do it.
Besides my new perspective on health and life, the one thing that's really motivating me? My saggy-pregnant-belly-sack. It is SO yucky. One can only hide it with clothes for so long. I want to be tone, trim, and strong.:-)
*I had a bad experience with the spaghetti squash. It was my first time. I cut it in half (length-wise), and covered it tin foil. I also punctured a few (like maybe five or six) holes through the skin, and baked for about 80-minutes. When I ran the fork through it to release the "strands", they were still crunchy. I'm guessing that means it was undercooked - but what did I do wrong?
