Last week's weight: 180.2 lbs.
This week's weight: 178.6 lbs.
I lost 1.6 lbs this week! What?! Happy Kelly.
I've been working my ass off lately, and I'm glad my hard work is paying off. It is very gratifying to see this.
I've been wanting to make kale chips for the longest time. I keep hearing how great they are from Twitter, Facebook & at my WW meetings. Finally, I decided to bite the bullet and make some.
Trader Joe's sells bags of triple washed, chopped fresh kale. I laid some out on a Bounty paper towel to make absolutely sure they were dry first. That's another I kept hearing - before you roast kale, it has to be bone dry first. Then I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper, laid out the kale, sprinkled with a little olive oil, salt & pepper. I roasted the kale in my oven for about 12 minutes at 350 degrees. And viola.
My verdict? Good, not great. They were very light & crispy. Not quite like potato chips (I guess I was kinda foolishly expecting that they would be), but the texture and the consistency did remind me of Baked Lays. I finished my serving, and I think I'll be making some more tomorrow.
It certainly doesn't hurt to get in an extra dark green, leafy vegetable. So I think this is something I would be making on the weekends. Or as a quick snack right after work.
Today was my Bikram day with the sexy instructor. Unfortunately, when I got there, Tommy was no where to be seen. Apparently, he wasn't feeling well, so he asked another instructor to fill in for him. Bummer. I mean, without nice eye candy, what the heck was the point in going, right? LOL.
I'm kidding. I wasn't going to waste a trip out there. So I stayed, sweated like a pig, and really enjoyed the session, sans hot, sexy instructor.
I'm glad I went, because I needed to sweat out some bad things I ate. I overdid it on the carbs at lunch today. Thanks, baked ziti. I made sure to chug a ton of water all day (I drink about a gallon of water as it is daily.)
I tracked everything, got in all of my requirements, and went over my points. I decided to keep dinner light by having just my Green Monster smoothie with 2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil mixed in. Better tomorrow.
I went shopping today and scored some cute shoes from Steve Madden. I was looking for some knee high boots that I've had my eye on for a while now, but they didn't have my size in the store. I found them on Amazon instead, and hopefully they will be here this week.
I need to post a new full body pic. I think I'll do that tomorrow.
Anywho, wrapping up now. Good choices, people!
Miss April, please come back soon! I miss you! :-)
