Day 66 - 183.5

Yay, the scale is moving down. Another pound today, and closer to a new "decade."

I ran 13 minutes straight yesterday @ 5.0 mph. I pushed through that extra minute after I'd finished a mile. Today I'll walk only, planning on 45 minutes @ 4.0 mph with a 1.0 incline.

Had Brussels sprouts yesterday for dinner, with a tsp of butter. Oh. My. Gosh. I have never cooked these at home, and have only had them once at a family dinner. In my effort to try new foods and get out of a food rut, I thought I'd try them. They were so very tasty, especially with the butter, which is totally allowed on my plan. I'll be making those little tasties again, for sure.

This morning I had a pork chop for breakfast. First time I've had pork on my plan. They were okay. I'm not a real fan of pork unless it's smothered in BBQ attached to a rib, or in the form of crispy bacon. But I had something new, and I'm sure it will contribute to the scale going down some more.

Do you have Gordon's there? We do here. In the freezer section they have LOTS of flash frozen veggies - which means they are not frozen together - you can scoop out how many you want - 1 serving at a time. My mother and I both use these - and all the fruit. I went today and stocked both of us up on fruit and veggies - blueberries, tart cherries, raspberries, green beans, peas, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli, and several mixed medleys.
