First, I didn't weigh this weekend because I'm still fighting TMI issues. I've felt yucky for most of January, but finally got some relief yesterday. Hopped on the scale this morning, and I'm a little over 1 lb down. I've talked about adding a supplement for a while, but just hate taking pills if it's not necessary. Since extra fiber and tons of water aren't doing it, I'm asking for suggestions!! What helps you??
On another yucky note, I finally got around to exercising this week.. sorta. Mr. D and I did a lot of walking around Saturday, and it hurt to put any weight on the heel of my right foot by that evening. I've had pain there before on and off, but dude. First, I thought it was just from walking around- but it was just one foot? Odd. It's been sore in that same spot since, though nowhere near as bad. Enter me trying to exercise.. apparently, the treadmill hates my foot. As did the elliptical. Pain just 5 minutes in (not the work through it kind!). Today, I learned all about plantar fasciitis. F me. I'm planning to get new shoes (my faves are all flats, which is a no-no), including new sneakers. And then the stretches. Fun times with Jillian in my future.. not facing the treadmill again until I have the new shoes!
And for the weekly menu (yes, I know it's half over, LOL)
Sunday: Bruschetta Stuffed Chicken with salad
Monday: Lasagna with salad
Tuesday: Pecan-Crusted Chicken with broccoli
Wednesday: Cola Chicken over rice with carrots
Thursday: Hamburger Noodle Casserole with peas
Friday: Steak with Blue Cheese Crust and salad
Breakfasts are boring at our house during the week (Greek yogurt, fruit, eggs, oatmeal) and lunches are leftovers, salads, or wraps with fruits and veggies. Dinner is where we try to add variety.. we try not to repeat meals during the month (any repeats you see are usually due to changes we made last minute), which is easy when we try so many new recipes. It keeps me from getting bored with my diet, for sure! So you can imagine how excited I was when my 5 new cookbooks were delivered Monday!!! Like a kid on Christmas, dude!! Can't wait to share some of the new recipes we'll be trying! ;)
