I had a long, busy day and didn't have time to blog until now... after 9 pm. But I did weigh in this morning, a day earlier than my usual Sunday weigh-in, because it's a new month. This morning I weighed 208 pounds. If that seems like a familiar number, it is; I weighed 208 on May 1 also. However, I weighed 211 last Sunday so that is a 3 pound loss this week! That's huge! I am very happy with that and am glad to be back at my lowest weight of this year.
Today my daughter and I went to the farmer's market. We picked up sweet spring onions, strawberries, sweet red cherries, snow peas, and fresh mint. I have never used fresh mint for anything before, so if you have any ideas for me please leave a comment! I have read that it is nice and refreshing to crush the leaves in a pitcher of ice water, so I will try that, but also would like to find ways to incorporate the mint leaves in my food as well.
I still have some greens, cabbage, broccoli and cucumbers in the fridge to eat, and I need to wash and prep the produce tomorrow morning. Today I ate lots of good stuff: fresh strawberries, nonfat Greek yogurt, steamed cabbage, and leftover pan fried fish over a salad. I also had a couple of Medifast shakes... one with Amazing Grass added.
My plantar fasciitis is almost unbearable lately. Today I forced myself to walk one of the dogs about 1/2 mile, thinking it might be good to loosen up the feet and legs a little after some stretching, but wow, I was limping from that. We also walked a little at the market and at the park in the afternoon, but I am sure my total walk time was under a mile today. I am in a lot of pain from that! I took Aleve but it didn't help at all.
Other than the foot pain, I feel pretty good! The weather is so nice and sunny. The food is fresh and tasty.
That's all for now.
