Then I got on Friday morning and I was up 3!!! How did that happen? Did I have too much salt at dinner the night before and was now retaining water? Was the scale on an uneven part of the floor in the bathroom? Either way, I wasn't upset, I just kept going. But when I got up on Saturday morning and found myself still up the three pounds I started to panic. Maybe the scale is broken. Either way, I haven't gotten on since. I'm going to keep up the momentum I started and reweigh myself Friday and see where I am. I'll let you know.
So, I hope your weight loss week was a little better (and more consistent) than mine. I thought I'd leave a recipe posted this week since none of us have left one yet. This is one of my favorite recipes because it is really good for you, full of veggies and kind of spicy.
I know this was posted in a magazine somewhere, but I cannot remember. So, if you know the recipe, let me know and I will give it the proper citation it needs.
- 2 pounds stew meat (you can sub chicken if you want)
- 2 teaspoons cooking oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3 medium carrots, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups water or broth
- 1 cup salsa (I usually use a whole 16 ounce jar)
- 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons beef bouilion
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained (14 1/2 ounce)
- 1 1/2 cup frozen cut green beans
- 1 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1 can green chillies (4 ounces)
- Hot sauce, optional
So, leave us a comment and let us know how your week went. Did you ever get surprised by the scale in a bad way? What did you tell yourself? What were your next steps?
