I was a little surprised by any loss this week because I have been slacking on my workouts (okay on calories though). My back has been out this week ever since I bent wrong earlier in the week. I only went to the gym twice and didn't do much cardio this week. Mostly due to that and also due to the fact that my bike has been in the shop for fine tuning. My back feels better now though and I got my bike back from the shop yesterday. Which mean I finally was able to ride it to work again! I have really grown to love my bike commute to work. Greenlake is really nice to ride by (especially on a sunny day).
1st goal accomplished...now for goal #2
My next goal is to be in the middle range BMI for my height which is about 140lbs. Who knows I might actually use my free personal trainer sessions at the YMCA.
Last nights feast
|Vegan old fashioned chocolate pudding pie with soy whipped cream.|
|Chickpea cutlet, garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and steamed brussel sprouts.|
I was really in the mood for chocolate last night so I made some old fashioned chocolate pudding pie from the cookbook Vegan Pie in the Sky .I made the mixture on the stove top and poured it into a ready made Keebler graham cracker crust. It turned out so good! The hard part is letting it chill for 3 hours before serving. It's really refreshing on a hot summer day. For dinner I had some homemade chickpea cutlets, mashed potatoes, gravy, and buttery steamed brussel sprouts. I haven't had brussel sprouts since I was little. I just remember hating them but now I love them. I'm gonna have them on the dinner menu more often.
