BSS Journal - Week 0, Day 4

I got home and dinner was not quite ready so I snacked on two brown rice cakes with crunchy peanut butter. It was like having a dessert. So good.

Dinner was a grilled chicken breast w/ Mrs. Dash (awesome and juicy since Amy found a better technique for cooking it), roasted asparagus (done the same as the zucchini and squash), baked sweet potato (this time without butter and I didn't miss it) and unsweet decaf tea.

This was also an unusual night when neither of us had dessert for the second night in a row. I can't recall when we've done that (and that's a sad commentary in itself).

Weigh-in this morning: 1.6 pounds lost, 8.0 pounds total. WOOT!

Breakfast (6:00am): 2 baked eggs w/ 1 slice cheese, bowl of Shredded Wheat n Bran with ½ cup milk.
Today I decided to have two eggs and split one slice of cheese between them. The cheese made them even better.

2nd Breakfast (9:00am): handful of spicy peanuts
I really wish I'd brought my peanut butter to work so I could have a brown rice cake slathered in crunchy peanut butter.

Lunch (11:30am): remaining chicken breast (from Monday night), celery, pistachios (roasted/salted) and two very small peaches.

I forgot my hummus for lunch (as I ate in the Cafe downstairs with my coworkers) so it was a rather dry meal, but the peaches were PERFECT.

Looking forward to preparing dinner tonight (Amy has been doing a smashing job, but I don't want her to feel like she always has to fix dinner). So I plan on having a chicken stir-fry with black rice (heavy on the veggies, light on the rice). I need to find some recipes for Asian sauces that don't use sugar (most of them do... as well as Indian dishes).

  1. I'm glad you have been enjoying what I've been cooking so far. :) I do appreciate you taking the time to help fix meals. Tonight's dinner was delicious! That recipe is a keeper! I had a small gain this morning, but it may have been due to what I ate yesterday. I'm hoping tomorrow morning's weight shows an improvement. I tried to be better today. So far I feel strong in doing this new healthy eating plan.
