I am feeling better physically and emotionally. I can tell that I do a lot more around the house.
I've been having fun making new recipes this week. I made lemon chicken for the first time which is good, not wonderful, but something good and different. Another new recipe was some kind of chicken and mushrooms...almost like a stroganoff only with chicken.
I also discovered roasted vegetables, mostly squash, in the oven! Mike and I both love those and they are so low in calories. The first night I used olive oil on them and they were yummy, but a little greasy for me. The next night I used a no calorie olive oil spray and they were still yummy, but not the same as with the real olive oil. I have found if I use the no calorie spray on the pan and then just a little drizzle of oil oil over the top of the vegetables it is very very yummy and just right.
Oh, and last, but not least, I found an apple crisp recipe that we both love. It is about 300 calories a serving, but well worth it!
I have a place on LiveStrong.com that I can put a recipe into the website and it tells me how many calories it is per serving! Pretty cool! Now I feel like I can make things and know exactly how much I'm eating! :)
Off to exercise this morning again! I'm actually enjoying it! I just have to get it in my head that it's not an option to do anything else but go workout and I'm fine! :)
