Husband was away on business. Kids were normal but blood pressure raising kids. The house was a mess. I'm still feeling sluggish. This is the sad list of reasons I let the reigns go on my diet. I totally half assed it this week. I snacked more and stop tracking my calories before the day was over. My only saving grace is I did my workouts.
I did gain again this week. I didn't think I deserved a gain last week, but this week I earned it for sure. There is good news this week. After one month on this program, I checked my measurements again. Jillian suggests that you measure your bust, chest, waist, hips, each thigh, and each arm in Making the Cut. I was surprised to see that I've lost 10 inches between all those measurements. I've only lost 3 lbs but I know I'm stronger and looking better.
Next week I vow to myself to start eating healthy again. No more half ass-ing it. No more eating like my parents are out of town. I am the parent. If I make my kids eat healthy, now I need to do it too.
Here is one good thing from this week, I have discovered a great onion ring recipe from Hungry Girl by Lisa Lillien. These things are delicious.
1 Large Onion
1/2 cup fiber one bran cereal
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
Dash of salt
Optional: additional salt, black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, etc.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the onion into 1/2 rings.
Use a blender or food proscessor, to grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb like consistency. Dip the onion rings into the egg substitute and then coat with breadcrumbs (add any additional spices to the bread crumbs before dipping.)
Place on a baking tray and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping rings halfway through.
