Starting weight: 184.5
Total lost: 14.5
My weight didn’t change this morning but I am perfectly fine with that. Hope when you stepped on the scale you saw marked improvement.
Did you get a chance to watch this morning’s installment of “No Excuses” on emotional eating? If you missed it, our web master will post a link today.
Last week, I met for a second time with Dietician Linda Steakley. She suggested I add in at least 1 good carb to my diet. I chose oatmeal. I love that stuff! So here is what I had for breakfast with calories.
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal 150 calories
1/3 cup nonfat/skim milk 28 calories
1 banana 105 calories
2 individual packages of Splenda 7 calories
1/3 cup fresh strawberries 15 calories
That’s 305 calories to start my day.
I bring my oatmeal to a boil, stir in the milk and fruit and cook it for 5 minutes. It is hot and delicious. It fills me up too. The oatmeal is good for people who suffer with high cholesterol. So eat up! Here is good health 😉
I’ve got an awesome new drink for you to try. My friend Dawn is a health goddess! She works for the county sheriff’s department and does personal fitness/training. She doesn’t even know she motivates me. She is a very positive person with an incredibly good attitude. She is a fantastic role model when it comes to fitness and I have a lot of respect for the healthy lifestyle she leads.
While I was sick, Dawn recommended I drink Powerade Zero. It has no calories, no fat, no carbs. It has 150 mg of sodium and 35 mg of potassium (this helps me with leg cramps that I sometimes get when I am dieting). It also has Vitamin B3, B12, and B6. Let me tell you I’m addicted. Kroger has it on sale this week 10/$10.00 It really helps with hydration and it tastes delicious. I recommend you pick up a bottle. I like strawberry and grape but they also make a mixed berry.
Southwest Crockpot Breakfast
1 lb. breakfast sausage (I recommend low-sodium turkey sausage)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4-oz can chopped green chilies (or jalapeno peppers) drained
2-1/2 cups grated fat-free Mozzerela Cheese (or fat free of your choice)
18 eggs (I used 1 large carton of egg beaters-equal to 13 eggs and 5 whole eggs)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, if desired
salt and pepper to taste
Spray inside of crockpot with non-stick spray. Starting with sausage, layer meat, onions, peppers, chilies, and cheese, repeating the layering process until all ingredients are used.
Pour Egg Beaters over mixture in crockpot. In mixer bow, beat remaining eggs with wire whisk until combined, pour in crockpot. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours. Note: If you have a newer, hotter cooking crockpot cook at 5 hours. The eggs should reach 165 degrees.
Hope you all have a terrific Monday.
