Positive Numbers....

Are not always good, ya know.  Today's weigh in proved that!  I'm up .6#, and that's after that awful case of food poisoning. So see, positive numbers suck!!  I can pin point the very second those pounds started adhering to my butt, too.  It was when I snuck an extra wrap from the tailgate leftovers.  Then just one more for the road.  Damn me!!  Those nasty snacks, plus a total lack of commitment to exercise after the food poisoning brought me to this point.

However, today is another chance to recommit, so I am.  I did my nifty breakfast thing this morning, using some of the Biggest Winner Breakfast Sausage I made yesterday.  Had a mini sausage pizza made on a whole grain English muffin.  Quite tasty.  So the day's off to a good start.  Better yet, I'm playing golf today, so there is part of the exercise I've been missing.  Still good stuff.  Dinner is going to be a pork tenderloin on the grill.  Style and flavor still to be determined. 

Ok, so now that I read some of the recipes for the Tofu noodles, I'm going to have to pick up a few more ingredients, one being another pack of noodles.  I WILL be cooking them for a dinner item one of these nights very soon.  You all will be the first to know if I have been successful in pulling one over on Mr. Picky Eater, a.k.a. Hubby Dearest.  I think I'm going to do the Lo Mein, so I need a few more of the fresh Asian veggies first.  Stay tuned for the verdict.....I hope I don't get kicked off the island!!! :)

Last night, using the "200 under 200" cookbook, I made a butternut squash "souffle".  It was delicious.  Even Hubby Dearest, not a huge squash fan, commented that we could do this again anytime.  He really liked it, AND it was only 103 calories for 1/4 of the recipe.  It was a wonderful change from my usual butternut squash w/olive oil misted on it and salt & pepper.

Just getting ready to try a few new recipes this week has me ready to go.  I think it will be just the push I need to get back into the "spring" of things. 


  1. Let me know how the 200 under 200 books recipes are, I thought about buying one myself.

  2. I have to buy this book! I think that trying some new things for summer will help me get out of my food rut! Keep us posted on the noodles. I'm going to try them with my husband soon!

  3. Oooh, that souffle sounds great!

    Keep on keeping on, your body is just getting over the tummy bug onslaught and it will come off properly soon.

  4. Wish i could buy those noodles here :( And yes finding new things does help! I'm trying one in the morning.

  5. Now see, If I would have "cheated" like that, I would have 6 pounds, not.6 pounds!!

    It sounds like you are a very good cook! I love to cook, but I still have not mastered many meat options. We were mostly vegetarian for so long, that I just don't have much experience with it, but I am learning. Wishing you negative numbers in the weeks to come!
