February Challenge

All right, so here's the lowdown on February. I'm in the FAT coalition challenge again to keep me accountable, so here's the weight I'll be posting and what I plan to do. Since I'll be researching/writing most of this month pretty hard-core, I don't want to count calories or write down my food, but I will definitely be planning out my menus on Sunday and following them during the week. I wrote out part of this week's yesterday. Also, here's today's weigh-in: 147. Same as it was. I am going to have to cut down on what I eat, because there is no way I can workout more. sigh. I kinda really rely on Berardi's G-flux theory...and maintain really well...

However. I'm going to keep workouts to Turbulence Training recommendations. 45 min on Mon, Wed, and Fri and 30 min on Tue Thur. I'm going to love the veggies, and I'm well on track to trying one new one per week this month (I already tried, cabbage, raw pumpkin seeds, and flax in anything I can get it into, and that was just this past weekend!). However, I'm still getting the munchies pretty bad so I'm going to have to figure out a way around those (and no, gum does not work).

So, here's to February! It's National Heart Month, so give your heart some love this month and exercise it ;)

I do this really simple Chicken No-noodle soup that is pretty decent. You just cook up a chicken breast, and while it is cooking cut up some cabbage and any other veggies you want to put in it.

Then boil up some chicken broth and throw it all in there. The cabbage makes a great replacement for the noodles if you are watching your carbs.

Thanks for the recipe, Justin- I'll have to try it! Also, have you tried spaghetti squash in it? That's a great substitute for noodles in tomato-based pasta.

I'm not allowed to eat spaghetti squash. It is a rule that my wife set before we got married because of an "incident" she had eating it and getting sick. I've always wanted to try it though. :)
