Thanks for the update on the potatoes. yes, I love sweet potatoes. It's the cost of things. Seems it's harder eating healthier.. Truly! I try to buy what I can and make things stretch, so somethings I simply can't afford. I am curious about the blues so I'm going to check for seeds or plants...
Helene, thanks for the info about the radishes.. I just can't fathom eating cooked radishes though.. hmmm... but, one never knows, so I guess I'll have to try it.
LOL.. Kim you crack me up Update though.. I stopped by the Dr. office today and weighed in... I've lost 6 more pounds muahahahaha... so it's working!!! Even with the stress this week and all the ups and downs *sighs*
Hmmm... beet chunks with turkey O.o I love pickled beets though. What's this blue potatoe? I haven't seen any here and my carbs are ridiculous. Most everything is within limits and in range but my carbs I can't seem to control. I don't even have bread as I did once ( I'm down to a 2 slices every other day.. Not everyday)!! Hummus, veggies and oatmeal with some meat for dinner. I don't know what else to cut for these carb issues..
Remember we are using muscles and ligaments we haven't used in a longtime, so our bodies are toning up as well. We may not see weight "loss" but over time we will see changes I believe, we can feel them. Adjust your exercises to a routine you can live with everyday, so thereby being able to maintain it's effectiveness.
As so many have said, it's a lifestyle change, so we do what we can to enrich our lives through nutrition and exercise... which I wish I had done years ago rather than wait for my new knees to do this But, I'm working on it now!! Hang in there and find what you enjoy and can incorporate into your daily life
This past week has been stressful and I haven't been doing them as my routine was set up. After this weekend I need to get back on track though. After doing those for several days, my body hurt in places I'd forgotten about. I moved about a bit slower to be sure!! I even stood through some of the exercises and finished them off that way. They worked great, and I can can adjust them to my mobility. Yes.. the arms definitely felt the need to get them toned Sticking with it though! In a year I hope to be a changed woman..
Peanut butter for me is definitely a trigger food. I've been doing fine without it, finding different fruits and veggies to add to dishes is a plus side of not having my peanut butter so it's all good. Given time, I hope to master the urge to overindulge with it.
