Confessions & Non-Scale Victories
On to the good stuff, I finally did something with the big yam that's been staring at me from my countertop for over a week. SOUP! When the temperature dips, like it did here drastically this week, I love soup. Nice, thick, filling soups. It was quick and easy. One big yam, a few carrots, chicken broth, garlic, pinch of cayenne, bit of salt, simmered for 20 minutes and then blended it all up. I've got a big container in the freezer and another one in the fridge. That's a little dollop of light sour cream in the picture. Helps to add the creaminess without adding actual cream.
My next non-scale victory is a bit of a two-parter. I haven't been to the gym yet this week. I know, it's Thursday. Shame! My friend Stephanie emailed me this afternoon and asked if I want to go to the gym tonight. Everything in me was screaming no but what I responded with was "yes, argh!" I went, I did week three in C25K, and I feel good for having done it. After all, how the heck am I supposed to say no to Fit Mom?? The second part of this non-scale victory is that I have been desperate for ice cream for the last few days. Pretty sure it's pms. I wanted to go to Dairy Queen to get a blizzard right after the gym. And I didn't!!! Oh I could taste it, I was ready to turn around, and I didn't. Although the picture I just added with this is killing me. I'd better publish this post immediately so I can stop looking at it!!
Oh, and I'm excited! On Friday, Fit Mom and I are making a run for the border. We are driving to Grand Forks, ND for the day. It's about 2 hours and totally worth the trip to hit Target and take advantage of all the fantastic stuff we don't have in Canada. And cheap cheese!! I think I've mentioned it before but I LOVE CHEESE! Super Target here I come!
