I've been pretty good at eating my breakfast all week! I live with my boyfriend, and he has a close friend who stays over a few nights a week because of how close our apartment is to their college. On Wednesday morning I got up and made them bacon, eggs, and 'potato pancakes' (frozen things from Mccain) and didn't eat any of it! I ate a delicious plate of avocado, cottage cheese, and grapes.
I've been eating alot of fruit and vegetables and staying away from fried foods and bad snacks even when they're right in front of me.

Yesterday I put together a quick soup because I had the morning off of work and it's delicious! It was carrot and squash with coriander and cumin, finished off with skim milk instead of cream. It's tasty and healthy!

So glad to hear we're all doing well!  Cheesy

Soooo at the beginning of the week I had my goal I wanted to work on (5 fruits and veggies a day) but then I also decided to count calories and be under a certain number and work out and blah blah it was a bit overwhelming and I ended up doing none of it for a couple days! Yesterday I went back to focusing on just the fruits and veggies and I'm already eating better. I think I need to incorporate a few new healthy habits slowly and not overwhelm myself with everything I want to change at once.

Still trying to figure out dinner, I'm low on veggies and out of bread and not sure if I want to venture out to the store.

Today I made mashed garlic cauliflower.


would love a few tips on how you made that..my current goal is low/no carbs during the week, although I do have some quinoa and kidney beans at lunchtime, i will allow myself one serve of carbs on weekend days. I had lost about 50lbs on the HCG diet, but ate really badly for most of the autumn/christmas and gained about 16 of that back...but the no carb thing since Monday has dropped 3.74lbs, which is good. it was recently gained so it will fall away fast. And a good reminder not to sabotage my recent losses!!

so I have two goals for the next few weeks. no bread, pasta, etc during the week. And I don't take the elevator at work until the end of january (we are only a three story building, but it is verboten to me!!)


I made it this way:

unfroze frozen garlic flavored califlower florets (2 bags) in the microwave (steamed). You can use milk, butter/margarine, cream cheese, whatever you use to make mashed spuds. You mash it (or use a blender/food processor) as with spuds. I think you could add any spices you want too. Very easy. Texture is not exactly the same but very nice on it's own merits.

I'm making these salmon patties for dinner! I added some lemon zest and cayenne pepper as well as cooked minced red onion with minced celery to add in (and reduced the fat a bit). I desperately need to get veggies from the store, but I'm making baked onion rings from here on Craftster as well as a bit of salad and some sad looking broccoli I would like to use up.

I've been getting vegetables in every day. And I cooked quinoa the other day and have been eating that. Great substitute for rice. Tonight I had vegetables with some shrimp and quinoa with just a little sweet and sour sauce.

I need to pick up other types of vegetables next time I'm out.

I'm going to hop on board to try and make my eating habits healthier.

I don't think I completely take away all bad foods but make them a treat once a week for now and see now that goes.

Two things I definitely need to work on this year is:

- Eating Breakfast and Lunch more often. Ever since I stopped going to university last year, I barely eat a lunch and only have breakfast twice a week, if I have change to get something for breakfast at all.
- Eating more fruit and vegetables. My main source for these right now is canned soups and some microwavable dinners (excluding home cooked dinners as some had veg some didn't).

I'm a bit late to say what my goal of the week is though hehe.

Hey, my son came home with a nutrition assignment yesterday, how timely! It's funny that the school is trying to teach him nutrition, lol, I've been studying it for nearly 20 years and that silly food pyramid is beyond ridiculous.
So I entered his daily diet (vegetarian, no dairy) into the nutritiondata site to get a read out of everything and he's gotten more than enough protein including the essential amino acids that are generally thought to be available in sufficient quantities only in meat, way enough calcium, all the vits and minerals, calories, TONS of fiber etc. All I can do is laugh when people insist you can't be healthy without meat and dairy, LOL.
Now I just have to put everything I know into practice for myself ALL the time instead of sporadically.

I have done really well this week.  I have been counting my calories and have worked out everyday for the past 9 days.  Last night we were very overwhelmed and had to hit a drive-thru but I got the chicken fajita pita from Jack in the Box, no fries! 

I know that tomorrow is going to be a major cheat day cause it's my son's b-day party.  I feel really good though so I don't want to blow it too much!

I haven't lost a pound yet but my pants are feeling a little less snug....

Alright! I'm ready to set my goals (yes, it's Friday night, I am aware...)

My goals for this week are simple! Eat breakfast at home every day, and bring my lunch to work every day. I'm going grocery shopping tonight, and will probably pick up some "healthy" cereal and almond milk for breakfast, as well as smoothie stuff. I'll make a green salad for lunch for maybe 3 days, and then maybe a grain salad of some sort, or a soup! Oh, and KALE CHIPS! So yummy, so yummy.

Well, I'm pretty pleased with my first week. I've written down everything that's gone into my mouth and just from being a little bit aware of that I've lost 2 lbs. So my next goal is to start walking which for me is a chore. (there! I've said it). Also bought some cauliflower that I need to find a recipe for that DH will eat also. (I can't eat garlic. Well, I can it's just that the consequences aren't very pleasant and I love garlic.)
