Let’s Get Ready for Summer – 21 day Plan – Day 8

Got home from work yesterday, fixed dinner and then went out for a 30 minute walk, when I got back my husband and I needed to work on a little business at home.  (We own our own business and try to no bring work home with us but sometimes ………………………..By the time we had finished it was too late to blog, so here it is in the morning now.

Anyway my daughter, daughter-in-law and I all weighed at the end of Week 1 of our commitment and between us we lost 10.1 pounds!!!!!  My portion of that being 2.4 pounds.  As I have said before the older I get I have found the weight does not come off as easily.  Normally on a weekly weight watchers weigh-in I am looking at less than a pound per week.

Wednesday (yesterday) was all planned out for me, I knew what I was going to have to eat for the day and then a friend called into the store and invited me for lunch!!!!!!!

So, let’s start at the very beginning ….

Wednesday morning is weigh day – please let me know your loss (no matter how big or small) I want to share our cumulative loss on my blog!!

Breakfast

A pretty ordinary breakfast I had 1oz Branflakes with Fat Free milk together with an orange.

Mid Morning

Banana  

Lunch

So as I said my friend Deanna stopped by the store and asked me out to lunch.  She eats gluten free and had noticed that one of the local burger (!) places had gluten free buns.

Anyway I noticed that they did Veggie Burgers.  I always find a Veggie Burger is very hit and miss, sometimes they are good and sometimes they are awful!!!!!  This one was very good.  It was very moist and you could actually see REAL chunks of vegetable in it.  I am trying very hard now to make this choice sound healthy!!!!!!!  Obviously by the time you add all the “fixings” that does change somewhat!  All their burgers come with lettuce, tomato, mustard, onion, relish and pickles.  I had a California Veggie Burger, that also has guacamole, fried egg and swiss cheese.  Is your mouth watering??  It was really good.  I was actually a very good girl though because I had no fries!!!!!!!!

I went “on-line” and their Veggieburger is 510 calories!!!

Dinner

Day 7 Dinner

For dinner I made up Indonesian Turkey with Rice, mine was made with chicken.  This is 100% Simply Filling.  I really enjoyed this.

Exercise

After dinner I headed out the door for a 30 minute walk – I knew if I sat down to relax for a little I would not get up and go!!
