I'm still working on the exercise thing. Curves 3 days a week is going well. It's pushing myself to do the other 3 days that I'm finding hard.
How do you find motivation to exercise?
I've also decided to embark on a "diet" if you will. I am cutting soy and sugar from my diet. Though I am having a hard time finding peanut butter that doesn't have sugar in it! Seriously! Does all peanut butter have sugar in it? I did settle on one yesterday with natural cane sugar and when I got home (after already opening it) and compared the nutritional facts with the regular peanut butter we had at home . . . there's hardly ANY difference. I'm severely annoyed!
I'm going to eat it anyway. Hrghmph! But after that I may have to go grind my own peanuts for peanut butter . . . I really don't want to do that. (Read: I'm lazy. I want it supplied)
Do you know of a peanut butter that doesn't have sugar in it?
I am going to start making my own bread again. I've JUST gotten on a bread and peanut butter kick. Right before I decided to kick out sugar and soy . . . officially.
I've just decided since Friday to do this. Since then, I've been craving salty foods like mad. Right now a huge bag of lay's chips would TOTALLY hit the spot. And yes, I would eat most, if not the whole, bag. Mmmm . . . Good thing I'm not going to the grocery store right now.
Last night for dinner I had steamed asparagus with balsamic vinegar splashed on top (I haven't checked the balsamic vinegar for sugar or soy yet, when I run out of it, I'll replace it with sugar-less, soy-less balsamic vinegar . . . if this isn't already.) And green beans sauteed in butter (real butter) and garlic. I don't think either were cooked long enough. Next time I'm going to steam the asparagus longer and steam the green beans before I sautee them. Otherwise it was a very yummy dinner. Lot of crunch and chewing.
Tonight we're having steak (I'm craving steak as well) with wild rice and asparagus. (I have about a pound and half of asparagus in the fridge right now.) YUM!! I may toss a nuked/baked potato in there as well. I haven't decided yet.
EEEK!!! It's 5:30! My Italian wants to eat at 6. I'd better get off of my batookis and start dinner! Ooops!
What's for dinner at your house?
