Weigh In Wednesday

I am still at 205 lbs. I have not been working out or watching my food intake like I should. I am not going to beat myself up. It was a lot easier to make time for myself when The Man was working the day shift. Right now he is on the night shift and it makes for some tough days. I believe he is supposed to go back on days sometime in July so I will once again make some time for myself.

Weigh In Wednesday

Today I weighed in at 205 lbs. 1 pound up from last week. Yes it is all my fault because I did not do a great job choosing my food and only made time for exercise once. Hope to have better news next week.

Market and Canning

Summer is almost here and the price of produce is going down. I love many fruits but have been trying to figure out more ways to eat them rater than just eating them plain. I have a harder time with vegetables as I like a few and have not tasted many. The Man and I have decided that we are going to try some new things this summer as we see them at the market or the store. This week's mystery food is fennel. It is still in the fridge because we have not figured out what to do with it yet. Need to get this taken care of soon.

We went to the Bury St. Edmunds market Saturday and bought tons of fruit and a few vegetables. The Man and I took on the challenge of cleaning a good portion of our fruit and turning it into some interesting canned items to eat later. We made monkey butter, rhubarb grapefruit preserves (mine doesn't look as pretty as hers but tastes really good), maple walnut syrup, strawberry syrup, and plum cherry vanilla jam. It took about 3-4 hours to can all of that but it was fun and so nice to see the good food that we preserved ourselves. Nice thing is that none of this food has HFCS in it.

It has been almost a week since we went to the market. I think we will just pick up a few random fruit and vegetables at the local store this week and plan to make another market trip the following weekend. I love how much we can get for the money. I will also be happy when our garden starts producing and reducing our food budget even more.

Weigh In Wednesday.... on Thursday

So apparently with a long weekend and not feeling well I lost track of my days. I thought yesterday was Tuesday all day until about 7p.m. So naturally I forgot to do my weigh in. I weighed in this morning at 204. I feel good about this as I only made it to the gym twice in the past week. I started with an ear infection and now I am either having allergy issues or a head cold. Whichever it is my head feels like it is ready to explode. I am hoping to feel better soon because I would love to make it to the gym a bit more often.
