I really love the Livestrong food app for my iphone. It’s been easier to keep track of my calories and my exercise while using it, I think every single thing I’ve eaten (good or not…including a box of Mike n’ Ike’s in a weak moment) has been searchable on it. Even if it isn’t, you can manually key it in.
Two weeks since the diet started, I’ve dropped enough pounds to get me motivated to get back to my pre-bakery weight. (that means 7lbs to go. Then that 7 extra that was hanging on from the babies…)
I’m trying SO HARD to be good, so I’m still eating well (enough) and trying to stay interested. Exercise wise my sciatica is killing me in both of my legs again. Every time I start to work out again, that stupid pain comes back, radiating from my ass through my legs. Brutal.
But back to food, my real nemesis…This dinner was so easy it’s embarrassing that I didn’t think to do it more before. I took a plain pork tenderloin, salt/pepper/a little olive oil and threw it on the grill. I chopped up a head of cabbage, a bag of baby carrots, and a red onion and threw it on a cookie sheet on 400 for 20-25 minutes. In a half an hour we had a kick butt low carb dinner. Stupid easy, and that’s exactly what I need right now. I need it to be so easy, and so filling, I don’t feel deprived. I just hope 2 weeks from now I’m STILL feeling this way.
