Well the weather is much improved...it was in the low 70's yesterday! And by evening it was still downright balmy. Nice. Makes me look forward to Spring when the trees are blooming and I can ditch my boots. My allergies? Well, not so much. But I digress...
Seems this weekend has been all about movies for us. J and mom saw Underworld:Rise of the Lycans on Friday night. I wasn't up for a movie that night, so they went without me and saw something I would never get through. Then, yesterday mom and I saw He's Just Not That Into You. It was cute although the overall theme of women talking themselves into bad boyfriends (and husbands) made me sad. I will say, the Aniston-Affleck storyline reminded me somewhat of J and I, so I liked that...especially at the end.
Since I knew I was going to the movies I ate low-carb all day so I could have a small popcorn. I just cannot smell popcorn and not have it. So knowing that I planned ahead and am happy that I did. So far the new way of eating is going well, I was even inspired yesterday to make-up a new recipe. I took some ground turkey breast and browned it with fresh, chopped garlic, diced mushrooms and chopped, fresh, baby spinach. I seasoned it with some Ms. Dash (no salt) and a little cumin. Then, once it was done, I stuffed it into hollowed halves of fresh zucchini and baked it at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.
Of course, it would have been tastier with cheese melted on top, but I am off dairy, so it was good to me. I had a lot of the "turkey hash" left over so I tried some today scrambled into my egg whites and that was tasty too. Ya know? It's amazing what a little effort in the kitchen will yield. Tasty and healthy meals that are quick and easy to make. It feels good to put myself back on the top of my list and making this a priority. By doing so, I am never hungry, eat yummy foods and lose weight. It's a win-win! Today, the sun is shining so we're going to do 4 miles on the Riverside trail...I am sure the dogs will love it!
