Today's weigh-in: 145.5
Comparing that to last Friday's weigh-in, which was that consistent 147, that's a 1.5 pound drop, also coming off a bad weekend. Not bad I'd say. I'm seriously considering doing the fast again on Thursday-Friday, maybe starting a little earlier in the day on Thursday (which apparently seems to be tomorrow already...). We'll see. Daughter now has strep throat on top of the Influenza B, so perhaps I should be making sure I'm just getting as much nutrition as possible, eh?
I do believe I must have had a culinary success last weekend with the Asian stir-fry (or sorry-two weekends ago), because my hubby made a variant of it on Sunday and again today. Not too bad, either. See? He's not a lost cause... (and just so I don't confuse anyone, he's home this week b/c daughter is sick)
2 portions spaghetti noodles (approx 1 cup)
3/4 pound pork loin, sliced/cubed
vegetables- he used sugar snap peas, corn, and peas
1-2 tbsp chili olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
chili powder, black pepper, and Cavendar's Greek seasoning, to taste
Boil water and prepare spaghetti noodles. While that is cooking, cook pork loin until just browned through. Add chili olive oil and vegetables to pan, add soy sauce, season, and cook until veggies are just done. Serve over noodles!
Some thoughts today on the post-fasting: I really did feel today like I was going into things with a new mindset. I noticed that I had been becoming a little obsessive about food, almost to addiction, partly because my schedule has been busy and interesting, and at times I've had to rush to get any food in at all during the day. There was no obsessing today. I ate when I needed to, and only as much as I needed to be satisfied. No fear that there wasn't going to be enough food. So, perhaps it was good for me (I say that very grudgingly, as I know that Brad Pilon is going to be going, "See? I told you so." *grin*).
