Hello everyone and Happy Sunday!!! I was planning to blog yesterday evening for the day but we got home from my folks late. My hubby is helping his uncle by fixing his van so he can sell it, so he was gone most of the morning. While he was gone I relaxed and drank coffee and caught up on my favorite shows on hulu. Then I did zumba's cardio party...when I first started some of the moves hurt my knee ( I broke my knee cap a year ago and had to have it surgically fixed) but I think it is really helping me to get strength back in my knee and hip.
We went to my folks for dinner and to do laundry. For dinner we had asparagus, chard, au gratin potatoes, and ham..the ham we had was from some friends who raise pigs and it was very lean and super tasty. For dessert I made lemon bars from Lauren's healthy indulgences blog...yum! Although they were a little sweet so next time I think I will use less xyiltol and more lemon. My hubby loves all things lemon so it was great to find him a healthy alternative. If you look up the recipe they are the raspberry swirll lemon bars, but I omitted the raspberries cuz hubby didn't want them.
Yesterday was the last day of my anitibiotics yay! My face has cleared up and I am so thankful. I know I am losing weight because my clothes fit much better, but the scale isn't going down. I've been 138 for a while now. I am hoping I am losing fat and gaining muscle, because I didn't consistently exercise before I started the bfc. I showed my Mom my tummy yesterday and she said "wow" so I guess I shouldn't worry about the stupid scale.
Breakfast: Orowheat healthful 10 grain english muffin with 31g carb, 2g sugar and 7g fiber...with almond butter and black coffee
Lunch: spinach chicken salad with cucumber, heirloom tomato, basil, blue cheese, walnuts, newman's Caesar dressing...I sam adams beer
