Week Two: Okay folks listen up - I weighed in on Saturday morning which was the end of week one and the first day of week two. I lost 5 pounds!!! So excited! That was exactly what I needed to have happen to keep me motivated.
Over the weekend I continued to stay exactly on track even though it was my daughter's 10th birthday. We went out to eat on Saturday night and I skipped the bread and the apps and ordered an 8 oz filet mignon and only ate half. I did eat the full side of green beans :)
I baked the Pumpkin Cranberry muffins over the weekend and I thought they were great! They do taste "healthy" but they are good. If you like things super sweet though you might not be impressed.
I tried the Creamy Cucumber Yogurt Salad. One problem - if you look at the photo the cucumbers are sliced but the receipe says to grate them. I chose to slice them and the salad did not turn out very well. There was way too much dressing for the amount of cucumber. I think if I had actually grated the cucumber it might have worked out better. Flavor was okay though.
Two thumbs up for the Calamari with Salsa Verde though - awesome!
