Week Nine Weigh In and My Favorites

I was down this week by 0.6 lbs. So I am sitting at 189.8lbs. WOOO HOOO the 180's!

Not much of a loss but I am happy with it because I have pumped up my exercise the last two weeks and I am sure I have built muscle as a result.

I even did a Walk/ Run yesterday outside. It was a 2.8km circuit in which I ran from one hydro pole to the next and then walk one I did this rotation for the entire time. I think I might like running! The outside of my left knee hurts today though...any suggestions from you runners as to why this may be???

Here is the favorites part...I thought I would share my favorite meals and snacks with you.


*Steel Cut Oats and 1 tbsp. Flax Seed topped with either berries or a chopped apple. A sprinkle of cinnamon and then to sweeten I use either brown sugar, maple syrup or agave nectar depending on my mood that day.

*Granola, berries and yogurt.

*Pancake with flax, wheat germ and oatmeal mixed in the batter. Topped with berries, organic peanut butter and real maple syrup.

*Smoothie either peanut butter, banana and milk or just lots of berries and milk. If I have Silk Soy Milk I will use it over regular milk.

*For a quick breakfast I like a cup of Kaishi Go Lean Crunch with 1% milk.


*2 egg Vegetable Omelet (sometimes Cheese) and a slice of Organic bread (plain)

*Vegan Chili with Corn Bread or on top of brown rice

*2 hard boiled eggs and Organic bread

*Lentil or Split Pea soup (both homemade) and homemade Tea Biscuit

*Vegetarian Pizza made on a Whole Wheat Pita with 2 oz. mozzarella cheese and a big salad

*Whole Wheat tortilla wrap with peanut butter, banana and honey.


*Sliced apple with cinnamon sprinkled

*A full bag of Smart Pop Popcorn

*Celery Stalk with tbsp. peanut butter


*Any piece of fruit or a bowl of cut up fruit

I would love to hear what your favorites are too!!!
