I hope everyone is having a nice Easter with family and friends. I wish I was closer to the family because it does get lonely here with only my husband and a few friends. I am looking forward to the trip home at the end of May. Then, I can see the grandchildren. my children, sister, parent, etc for many months. I just have to see today as another day and not think of this day as a special event. I had my bean soup and two tacos for lunch with a bit of humus, and that hit the spot. I am going to look over Lisa’s recipes and try one of her recipes with quinoa and some vegetables or supper. I have a lot of vegetables left and they have to be eaten.
I am taking my juicer back to Costco because I really do prefer smoothies and having the pulp in my drink. I am deciding between a Vitamix and the Blendtec blender. I think blending will be a great way to get more vegetables and greens. I can also use it for making butters and those dates squares, etc. So, I am looking forward to that purchase.
I have to say that I was disappointed by not losing any weight this week. I guess it was because I am eating so much in fruit, vegetables and rice. So, I have to cut down on the volume of food. I really don’t care if I didn’t loose because I am so happy with the way I feel. Having no pain in the knees and feeling like I have so much energy is much better than my issues with weight at the moment. I have one more week to go and then we will talk about our next steps on this blog.
