EXERCISE is the determining factor

Did I mention that in addition to dieting, the dietician stressed how important exercise is.  In fact, the two weeks that we reduced our exercise to a bare minimum, my husband and I gained three pounds.  We cannot afford that.  So just hoping to lose three pounds, and eating healthy is just not enough.   So, we are back to the gym, exercising 30-45 minutes at least five times a week.

Who can do this when they are working full time?

We saw the dietician on Thurs. On Fri…

We saw the dietician on Thurs. and with her voice and instructions really fresh in our brains, we went immediately to the gym and exercised.  Then we went directly to Whole Foods and shopped.  That is when I bought EVERY vegetable I recognized.

On Friday my granddaughter came to spend the day as she was off and everyone else had work.  It was pouring out.  What does a grandmother and granddaughter do together on a rainy day?  Of course, we baked!  We made – and here is an inadvertent plug for Simple Mills Chocolate Cake and Muffin Mix.   I am and have been gluten free these past five years.   Of course I sent my granddaughter home with cupcakes for everyone.  BUT…we kept four for ourselves.  (Best gluten free product I have found to date.)

Sh!!!!! Please don’t tell our dietician.  We did eat half a plate of cauliflower for dinner last night.  We did have small portions of red lentil spaghetti (the Whole Foods 365 brand is gluten free and tastes really good).  We did have baked salmon.

BUT, we DID have a chocolate muffin!!!!
