Week 12: 11/27 thru 12/02

After 12 Weeks On the Diet…

I feel the healthiest I’ve ever felt, my whole life.  I’m healthier now than I was when I was 16.  Seriously, it’s unbelievable.

The only thing I’m a little bummed about is that I lost a pound- meaning, I need to eat more now that I’ve been ramping up my workouts.  And to be clear, I’m not really doing that much cardio- mostly yoga, with light strength training.  Going to try to get in at least 1600 cals this point forward, but it’s really hard when the food I’m eating / making is not processed and home-cooked.  Fills me up fast, and anything over 1500 has me full to the point where I’m uncomfortable.  This is something I’m going to have to work on.

I’ll approach the weight issue with caution and raise a red flag if I lose more.  But as of now, I’m tapering off the prednisone quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

    Hi, Jo…I’m on the diet too and am curious to know what kinds of spices you’ve been using that seem to work well for you. I’m ready to add some more flavor, but don’t want to branch out too far! Thanks for the great blog – keep up the good work!

    Hey Sharon! I just use whatever I can to check the ingredients and make sure there’s no artificial sugars in there. Also, I Avoid chili powder, chili pepper, red crushed pepper, and white pepper- pretty much, anything that has too much of a “spicy” kick. That being said, I DO use plenty of spices on my fewd, mainly, garlic salt & powder, onion powder, regular salt, LIGHT black better, lemon, oregano, parsley, and garlic.
