I weigh less than my husband
Down 3.6lbs from last week. :)
This is a major milestone for me, my friends! For the first time in better than 5 years, I now weigh less than my DH.
A few other milestones last week, too. I Zumba'd for the first time & it was a blast!!! A good friend of mine took me to her gym & I have to say I really liked it. The place was huge, open, bright, airy and it did not smell like a gym. I went back for a "Chisel" strength training class Sunday & I believe I'm going to join. who'da thunk it??
In fact, there is a whole list of things I did not have as a fat girl but I've been amassing since surgery: gym membership, scale and athletic shoes. Still no full length mirror but I think my hubs is working on something.....
A few notes from the cooking front..
I made this Curried Shrimp & Mango Soup last night. Hubs really liked it. I think I'll make a few tweaks next time...chop the shrimp into bite size pieces & (not a huge fan of mango) sub in some pineapple. Definitely a repeater.
Also, made this Slow-Roasted-Halibut-with-Shaved-Asparagus-and-Fennel-Salad. It was ok. Not my fav & probably not worthy of a spot in the recipe rotation.
Looking ahead, this week brings new challenges. I go back out on the road this week. I travelled a bunch last year & its one thing I'm quite concerned about is how to manage eating well & following the rules when I'm far from home. First test this week - I'll let you know how it goes.
