It's only been 3 days, but I do want to get back in the habit of a weekly weigh-in like I used to do. There's not a lot to report, but I am going to keep my original goals for the coming week: no gluten, lower sugar, and exercise. So far (3 days) I have done better with this stuff. I rode my exercise bike once (23 minutes) and walked once (a mile). The only gluten I had was a slice of birthday cake (and of course that was the sugar too). I have been eating too much salty stuff, however, and my hands are puffy so I am guessing water retention is the pound I gained (246 today) and it will leave with better hydration. I ate a lot of salted kale chips, and ham and bean soup. The soup has been so good, but salty.
I made this using my old standby Ham Bone Soup recipe with the addition of more carrots. I used a bag of 15-bean soup mix (just the beans, not the "flavoring packet") for the beans. It's delicious!
I think I'll make a big pot of soup every week to have something warm and filling to eat for lunches. I really like soup and can fill it with lots of vegetables. I'll make something less salty this week, starting with the leftover bones and meat from our New Years Day Prime Rib.
I'll be sure to get out for a walk today and drink plenty of water. Hope you enjoy your week!
