I can tell we are in the Christmas season. We had a week filled with Christmas concerts. We saw 7 concerts in 5 days. It was lovely. We are preparing for Christmas and winding down the school year.
Adam made some kale and veggie soup. I made thai butternut squash soup (I may be addicted). I have been enjoying my lunchtime salad or leftovers from the night before. This week I was ready for some pasta. We used to have pasta at least once a week. I made a garlic alfredo with air fried tempeh and broccoli with whole wheat pasta. I usually make this with red lentil pasta and I love it, but I was out of that type of pasta this week.
I went to 4 Pilates classes this week. I also start Couch to 5k. I have been running with one of my dogs. She is loving it! Adam and I also took a long walk one day.
I have been skipping my normal green smoothie. I don’t like to drink it before I work out and it is so close to lunch when I get out, that I have just been continuing to fast. If I don’t eat my raw veggies at lunch, I usually don’t eat them at dinner. I feel better when I get all my nutrients in and this is my focus this week. I plan to weigh out 1 lb of veggies this week and eat them with some type of cashew based dressing. I just want to see how much it really is.
Adam has lost a total of 13 lbs. He has dropped a pant size. I have lost a total of 7 lbs. I wore some of my “back of the closet” pants this week. You know the ones I mean… I also have the same jeans in 2 sizes. This week I grabbed the smaller pair and they were perfect! Final Thoughts It is amazing how quickly small changes add up to big results. Just paying a little more attention has helped us both so much. Being consistent is so important.
