Another good day of eating.  I have to say I made the best dinner tonight.  I made a pot of pinto beans and then I roasted broccoli, yellow squash and ears of corn in the oven.  I will never again boil any of these vegetables and I could have totally went without the meatloaf and not even missed it.  I meant to take a picture of my plate of food before I started to eat but before I knew it I had scarved it all down.

I just finished walking 2.1 miles in 30 minutes.

Now for my goals that I set for the week:
1. Water- 85 oz
2. Sugar- not a problem today
3. Fruit- 2 servings today
4. Vegetables- at dinner
5. Carbs- stayed within limits
6. Exercise- 2.1 mil/ 30 min.
7. Soda- none
8. Fast food- none


  1. Good job! I am going to try that vegetable roast dish. Sound yummo!


  2. All I did was clean the corn, cut up the broccoli and squash and toss in alittle olive oil and sprinkle on whatever kind of spices you have. I had an all purpose seasoning that had salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in it I believe. Then I roasted at 350 until tender.

  3. I LOVE any kind of squash. Wonder food. :-)

  4. Very cool! It's so great that you are experimenting and finding things that you love that are also good for you.

    How did you like the plum?

  5. I actually liked the plum. I don't think it was quite ripe enough but it kind of tasted like a grape. I will definitely being eating them in the future.
