Everyday Life

June 16th, 2015

Wow!! It's been almost 2 months since my last post and all I have to report is that I have only lost 9 lbs. I have developed a horrible pain on my butt and legs guess from running (not as young as I use to be).  I will be seeing a doctor as soon as I get back home if the pain continues.  I can blame the weekends for the slow weight lost as they are truly my menace, I have to figure something out.  Leaving on a 7 day cruise and when I get back I'm getting this done.  Although I can report that my cholesterol are back in point and my liver enzymes are normal so even though I have not lost a lot of weight, my body appreciates all this healthy eating.  Have a great one.

Have not been able to update my blog.
So far I have lost 2 lbs (only because this weekend was horrible) but I lost 2" from my wait 1 1/2" from my hips and chest and 3/4" from my thighs.  I'm a happy camper! this week will be great because I planned a full menu for all 7 days, much easier.  Stan is bitching and moaning so much but still lost 5lbs and he really is not doing it 100%.  I will update you next monday.

Today's healthy recipe.

Picadillo

1 lbs ground Turkey
1 small can of diced tomatoes (plain)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped  peppers
4 garlic cloves.
dash salt (sorry I need some salt)
pepper to taste.
hot sauce (to taste)
1/4 cup wine/water

brown the turkey, add the onions, peppers and garlic cook about 2 minutes, add the tomatoes and wine salt, pepper and hot sauce.  Cook for about 30 minutes.
Serve with Brown Jasmine rice.

Day 3 of the 21 day fix diet, so far all is well.  Well, almost all; we just can't seem to be able to eat all that food.  It's a lot of eating.  But we are doing are 30 minutes of exercise a day and I'm re-inventing delicious foods and making them healthy.

Vegetable broth:  ( I did not measure I just put the all in a big Pot and simmer for about 2 hours)

3 to 4 carrots
2 Celery Sticks (don't like celery too much)
2 medium onions
3-4 garlic cloves
1 green pepper
1 -2 parsnip
1 med bag green beens
water
sea salt, black pepper and to give it a kick some red pepper flakes (I like it spicy).

Now you can put these in the freezer and use them to cook quinoa, brown rice etc.

By the way, put the vegetables in a food processor add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and some quinoa and make veggie patties.  YUM!!!

Enjoy!!

Today Stan and I start the 21 day fix diet.  Both he and I are very overweight and he takes way too many medicines and if I don't get my ass in gear I will soon be on the Prescription medicine shit and that is something I DO NOT ever want to be in.  So, today I am starting to blog our progress every day, our meals and our exercise.

Breakfast today was:  2 hard boiled eggs, fruit salad and coffee with a little bit of milk - NO sugar.

Morning Snack is:  Popcorn mix with raisins, almonds and Dried Fruits.
3 1/2 cups of air-popped popcorn
1/4 cup raisins
2 Tbsp. Whole raw almonds
2 Tbsp. Chopped dried fruits
1/2 tsp. Sea salt (optional)

Combine popcorn, raisins, almonds, dried fruit and salt and mix well.

Lunch:  Salad of Spring Lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers with grilled Chicken.
and a fruit salad.

Mid day Snack:  Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Morsels and Toasted Pecans.
and a cup of green tea.

Dinner,: Roasted Turkey Breast (Stan does not eat chicken, so I have to make Turkey) Stir Fry vegetables (green beans, broccoli, carrots, onions and peppers).

Night time snack: (because we have to eat 6 times a day) a berry smoothie.

I'll let y'all know how today went.
