Things are going well for me right now. I'm so close to my first goal that I can taste it. I was hoping to get there by the end of January but I didn't quite make it. But here are the stats.
January Weight Loss: 8.6 lbs. Holla!
cashew tofu (celery, snap peas, baby corn, mushroom, bell pepper, and carrot) w/ steamed white rice
2 Irish breakfast teas w/ sugar and lite coconut milk
roast (yukon golds, carrots, shallots,celery, and chickpeas)
40 oz water
The roast I made on Saturday was ridiculously good and so fricking simple. I took 4 small carrots, 2 yukon golds, 2 celery stalks, 3 shallots, and a 15 oz can of chickpeas (drained) and threw them in a bowl (after chunking the veggies, of course). I added a pinch of thyme and rubbed sage, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste then mixed it together. Put it in a pan and covered the whole thing with 1.5 cups of veggie broth. I put foil over the pan and placed in a 375ish oven for 35-40 mins. Then took off the foil and cooked another 10 minutes. The vegetables were like buttah. Seriously melt-in-your-mouth good.
2 dark chocolate mint thins
1 sm pear w/ white choc peanut butter
2 chocolate mint thins
plain unsweetened soy yogurt w/ raisins, cinnamon, agave, and walnuts
60 oz. water
EXERCISE: 30 min pilates
spoonful white choc peanut butter, small pear 1/2 cup plain unsweetened soy yogurt
4 dark chocolate mint thins
rice cereal w/ dried cherries, cinnamon, pecans, and lite coconut milk
2 veggie sushi rolls w/ soy sauce, wasabi, pickled ginger and edamame
2 cups of unsweetened green tea
60 oz water
My latest discovery is that a local store (Fresh and Easy) sells these awesome dark chocolate mint thins. So good. If you love junior mints or peppermint patties, these things rule! I thought this was an awesome find, but somebody told me Trader Joe's has them and I saw the same thing in World Market today. Not the same brand but the same thing.
I could live in World Market. They always have really awesome finds. From the incredibly good chocolate to a ton of vegan Indian food. And they sell a ginormous thing of capers. Digressing.
Tomorrow begins Operation: Sweetie Pots. I'll be sure to keep y'all updated on my adventures.
