Well, this will be short and sweet and then I will more than make up for it next week!
I am prepping for The Greatest Spectacle in Tasting and I am feeling a tad nervous - OK a lot. Come on out and see us perform, y'all! It is at 6:00 tonight and I promise you won't be disappointed...because there's lots of wine and food to sample! ;) (shameless plug)
This week was hard for me. I was up late several nights in a row and I felt like I was eating on the fly a lot more than normal. My tracking wasn't as "perfect" as I would have liked it to be, but hey, that's reality and I need to learn how to manage in the real world. I was pretty convinced this was going to be a bad week, but to my surprise...I lost 4 pounds! :) That brings my total to 36 pounds. This is week 13 for me. My goal was to lose 30 by the Greatest Spectacle performance, and I did that, and then my next goal was to lose 40 by the first of June. Think I can do it? We shall see!
Big changes this week? I have been testing out some meat-free products from Amy's and Morningstar Farms. I have been pleasantly surprised - really - I'm not going to lie! I tried both Amy's California Burger and Quarter Pounder and they were great...I can't say they tasted like a beef burger...but I wouldn't expect them to! I also tried MS Farms Chick Patties - better than normal chicken patties, and MS Farms Riblets which WAY exceeded my expectations! In fact I made a "Mc.Riblet" Sandwich that was pretty dang good. I just put the riblet on an Arnold's Sandwich Thin, added pickles and onion , and voila! The only product I tried that I DIDN'T like was MS Farms' sausage style patties...they weren't bad, but they also weren't that great either.
I have a couple of recipes to pass on next week - breakfasty stuff! One muffin recipe (that tastes more like a cupcake than a muffin) and the best pancakes ever courtesy of Jamie Oliver!
Hope to see you all tonight for some wining and dining and MUSIC! RESPECT! When you come home...
