We got the privilege and honor to host a wonderful guest in our home this week - the stomach flu. Luckily, I did not personally partake in the fun, but got to watch everyone else enjoy the festivities. Oh and I got to work the graveyard shift several nights in a row as well as wash a few dozen extra towels and sheets. Blech! Next time this charming guest wants to visit I think I will screen my calls.
This week I was back up 0.4 pounds. Eh...I'll take it...6.2 last week is a lot. I can spare four-tenths of a pound I suppose. ;) For anyone keeping score that brings my total weight-loss to 72.8 pounds - 2.2 pounds away from another big milestone...75! I am determined to hit 75 this week. My buddy and I are hitting the gym this week with our leg warmers and sweat bands (OK, maybe not...more like yoga pants and baggy t-shirts) for some Zumba and Pilates. We're getting physical, people! If I hit 75 this week I will definitely be posting a vlog update. Anticipation...
In other news...here are some things I am "falling" madly in love with right now:
Gardein chick'n products - made from ancient and yummy grains like quinoa, amaranth, millet, and kamut - another great faux chicken option (thanks, Morgan, for encouraging me to try something new!). You know how much I love Quorn, but this is a really good option too...and Vegan!
Apples, apple cider, apple butter...do I even need to explain myself? Yum.
Pumpkin - So delicious. So packed full of nutrition. So fall.
Pumpkin seeds + dark chocolate - I think this should be the next candy bar. I would totally buy it. Right now I just mix the seeds with a few non-dairy, dark choc chips, but it would be so awesome to have it all in one cute little package. If you see anything of the sort - let me know. I have had a dark chocolate with flax seeds bar, so I know I'm not THAT crazy.
Chai - Once again, very "fall" of me to mention. I found a pre-made carton of black tea Chai made by Tazo at Sunspot. I bought it. I added unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I love. I love very much.
