Chile, thanks so much for your suggestions! I did pick up some Success brown rice and also some frozen potatoes at the store yesterday. For now I still prefer to prepare fresh meals (enjoying the farmer's markets right now!) but I do love the idea of throwing together a meal in 10 minutes - Jeff Novick style!
Stopped in at the farmer's market yesterday for their strawberries. Wow, they are so good! Enjoying some in my oatmeal this morning.
While I was there I also picked up a bunch of plants for the yard. I got a few planted last night and hope to get the rest done today and tomorrow. So, another project to keep me busy.
No actual exercise so far this week...just painting and planting. But I'd rather have things like that to do than some boring work out video! I don't get my heart rate up as much, but considering I am doing them for several hours at a time instead of just 20-30 min I think it's probably even better.
Today was weigh in day! I've joined in the MWL challenge group so I'll post here every week as well. I'm pleased to report that I am down 3 pounds this week! I weighed myself a few days ago and my weight was still the same so I got a little worried that I was doing something wrong. So this really put my mind at ease today! I really love this simple way of eating and knowing that I'm not clogging up my body with all the junk that I used to eat.
