I'm back on track!! This week I'm down 2.6 lbs. I'm very excited!! I'm also excited because today I'm wearing a pair of capri's that I bought on vacation that are a size 4. I need to measure myself. I haven't done that since April. I'll be back at Yogalates today. I didn't go yesterday because I had a Dr's appt. I found a lump thingy under my chin so I went & had it checked out. He said it was a swollen lymph node from being so sick the last month. It should be gone in a week.
I went & had my nails done yesterday. I had the Shellac polish put on my fake nails last time I went. I meant to take a picture of what they looked like yesterday but I forgot. It had been 3 weeks since I had them done & they were just starting to show signs of wear. They'd grown out quite a bit so I needed a refill. I did Shellac again but I got the French Manicure.
Last night I actually cooked something. Well, some people won't consider it cooking but I used the oven so it's cooking to me. My friend Allison's aunt told us about how she's been making these little individual size pizzas out of pitas. Depending on what you put on them they can be really low cal. I used a whole wheat pita which was 150 calories. I bought the Great Value brand pizza sauce. It was something like 30 calories for 2 tbsp. My favorite pizzas are full of veggies so I used mushrooms, red onions, black olives & red & yellow bell peppers. Of course as usual when I'm cooking I messed up. It wasn't anything major. I forgot to put the cheese on so I had to add it on top of all the veggies. I used mozzarella. It was really good. I think it would've been better though if you put sauce, then cheese, then veggies. Anyway, before you put anything on the pitas you need to put them in the oven for a few minutes at 400 & flip them until they get firm but not hard. Then put all your stuff on the pita & put it back in the oven until the cheese melts. This is the finished product.
I've tried a zillion brands & a zillion flavors. Everytime I say "I'm done" because I HATE it but then I read about how great it is for you & I buy more. I love the one above. I absolutely cannot stand the Honey & I don't like Plain BUT Vanilla & Strawberry are sooooo good!!!
I mentioned that I'm going to attempt my first 5K in November. Well, in the first step towards that goal, I downloaded the C25K app on my phone. I was happy to see that the program is just 30 mins., 3 times a week for 9 weeks. I think I can do it. Of course it would be nice if the 110 degree heat index days would leave us. My plan is to start the training on August 13th (I have to work myself up to this). That will give me the 9 weeks I need to complete the program & 2 weeks to practice running the full 3 miles. We'll see what happens.
