Mon Jan 12th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: oatmeal, cream, milk, raisins, almonds, cinnamon, honey. half a piece of string cheese. water and pills.

Snack: black cherry berry tea

Lunch: leftover chicken stir-fry with brown rice. water.

Dinner: meatloaf, brussels sprouts with gouda cheese, sourdough bread with butter and honey. water.

before bed - water and pills - I finally got my Metformin

Analysis: today was pretty good - I didn't snack enough but I didn't really feel hungry. I absolutely loved this new brussels sprouts recipe I tried - I think even those who don't like them would be pleasantly surprised - they were very mild and delicious with the cheese. I know you are all thinking, hey, sourdough bread is white flour! Well, yes, its true, but its a little bit of an exception because its fermented so the carbs are broken down quite a lot in the dough and its allowed occasionally. I only had one very thin slice from an all natural loaf from Whole Foods, and I'm not planning on eating any more of it - hubby will use it for sandwiches...

I did pilates again today. Yay, its already getting easier! It feels so good to be doing a little bit of exercise!


  1. You're right I kept thinking about why you could have sourdough bread. I have been staying on my plan and when I'm hungry I snack on vegetables and healthier things. I went on the treadmill 35 min before bed last night. I will try to go at least 5 min longer every day until I work up to an hour again. I am feeling better already. It is amazing what just a little exercise can do!
    Love, Mom

  2. Holly, I'm so proud of you. Even though your diet is not what you would hope yet, it's still so much healthier. Keep up the good work, you keep me thinking about healthy eating.
