Yesterday went well. I had my raisin bran muffin with my pills for breakfast:
1,000 mg Vitamin C (haven't had a cold in 2 yrs.), I never did get the flu.
kelp (thyroid support) - the doctor couldn't feel my goiter last visit.
CoQ10 - heart/energy - I take this hoping it will help the blood pressure.
fish oil - it's a good thing
glucosamine/chondroitin - the old bone/joints need some lubrication these days
my blood pressure pill
I had some beef roast left over so I stir fried some veggies in a little butter/salt/rosemary and added the meat. I will get two meals out of that. I had some 90% cacao dark chocolate for dessert. That was lunch. I have been grabbing a handful of almonds, eating a food bar, having some trail mix, or eating a banana or something mid-morning but didn't yesterday. I think that's one of the reasons I have been stalled (in fact, I'm sure of it).
No mid-afternoon snack either (another reason for stalling). Supper was a sweet potato which I mashed and put just a little butter on it with some stevia and some cinnamon. I steamed a vegetable mixture and seasoned them with a little butter and salt/pepper/garlic powder mixture I have. Dessert was a stick of gum.
I know it sounds like a lot of butter but I just get some butter between the tines of a fork and kind of baste around over the hot vegetables and let it melt on them.
My first 32 oz. of water had my honey/ACV/garlic tonic in it (about 1 T.) and some senna tea and a scoop of L-arginine (blood pressure) in it. My second 32 oz. was just water. I also had some vanilla spiced chai tea. I also drink decaf coffee (blood pressure again).
TBTW has a crack slaw recipe I am going to try. I had TBTW and Amtrak mixed up in my earlier post.
I did a session of No. 1 Fat Burning exercises. I am up to 12 now. I use 10 lb. weights and on the overhead press part I do 5 rather than 1. I do Sun Salutes as a stretch before and also again as a stretch after. They really do keep me from getting sore. I am going to try to do them faster and work up to 15 sets.
That was yesterday. Today I have step aerobics. My eating doesn't change much. I will have the bran muffin w/pills before step aerobics. I will finish off the beef stir fry for lunch. I may hard boil some eggs today and make a tuna salad for supper. Don't know yet. I will make a big bowl of salad today. Love my salad spinner. If you don't have one, get one!
Hope all of you have a great day!
