So I feel like I'm starting to "get" this...which is a good thing! I think I can keep this up too. I don't feel like I'm missing out or being restricted to eating only vegetable sticks and soy beans for the rest of my life.
The biggest part of this week was the butt-kicking which ensued after starting Jillian Michael's Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism. I have never had a workout in which I actually grunted...yes, I made guttural noises....more than once....because my body sucked at an exercise so much. I did the dvd on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday I rested=)
You can check it out here and buy your own copy of kill-me-now workouts. Be sure you have a friend or family member near by in case there is a need for resuscitation.
Here are this weeks stats:
Workout: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Weight Loss: .6
Abs: 60 crunches per day, 5 out of 7 days
Another cool stat: I used exercise as an incentive to get homework done. Can you believe it!?!?!? I wasn't allowed to workout until I finished my reading lesson! CRAZY!
This Week's Recipe:
Now, before you click the back button, fear not.......this actually tastes good. I know, I know. I didn't want to try it either. But then I did and I fell in love.
The best thing about this recipe is that you can make it a couple days in advance. Personally, I think it tastes better the older it gets. It's as if the broccoli soaks up the flavors of the other ingredients.
The next best thing is that it has bacon it in. Yup, I totally said bacon. Bacon.
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
1/4 c Low Fat Mayo
1/4 c Low Fat Sour Cream
2 t Cider Vinegar
1 t Sugar
4 c Broccoli Crowns, Chopped
3 Slices Cooked Bacon, Chopped
1/4 c Dried Cranberries
1. Whisk garlic, mayo, sour cream, vinegar, and sugar in a large bowl. Add broccoli, bacon, and cranberries. Stir to coat the dressing. Add pepper to taste.
Try this as your next vegetable side dish or take it to your neighborhood picnic. It will be gone in all of 2 minutes. Promise=)
