Thank you so much, ladies, for your comments. I thought I was ready to lose my mind over the weekend.
I weighed in this morning, and I seem to have lost 4.5lbs of that weird weight - even though I didn't really try over the weekend. Must have been a weird bloat thing, who knows? I don't get it, but whatever.
So, I've effectively gained 0.5lbs over last week. Which still sucks, but I can live with it. You're all absolutely correct - I'm doing the right things, working hard, etc. The weight will come off when it feels like it. I just hope that it leave soon, I've had the eviction notices up for a little while.;-)
Hubby and I booked a weekend trip to NYC in late May! Sans toddler! I'm very excited for the break. I know that I shouldn't start calculating numbers, but I would really like to be 15lbs lighter by that time. I can do it, if I keep all of this fat-busting activity up.
I spent all day yesterday in the kitchen, cooking healthy meals for the week:
- stuffed peppers (brown rice, organic pinto and black beans, and fresh diced tomatoes) with steamed asparagus
- Lentil and brown rice patties
- Dhal and Mixed Vegetables
- Coucous with grilled veggies and chickpeas (for the toddler)
And here's the funny part. My hubby has been hinting at how good the Vanilla Pound Cake was, that I made a few weeks ago, from Veganomicon (the!best!cookbook!in!the!world!). Anyway, he's starting a new job today, and I thought I'd bake it for him last night (even though I was wiped from all the cooking). I figured it would be a nice treat for the week.
I was a bit nervous, because I didn't want any pieces to wind up in my tummy. By accident, of course.
Anyway, I prepared the dough (lots of blending of various things involved), and was about to pour it into the cake pan. I thought I'd try the batter (I loooove cake batter). I almost died from the hideous taste in my mouth.
Guess what? Turns out that the container of sugar in my cupboard? Was replaced by sea-salt when a certain husband of mine was putting groceries away.
I threw out all the cake batter! I'm laughing about it now, and it probably is for the best. I'll make it for hubby when I re-stock my ingredients. I made him label the salt after the whole incident.
Lunch time! Leftover stuffed peppers from yesterday - yum!
