I made this soup last week because I had a bad week, and was having a hard time staying warm. The weather hasn’t changed that drastically, but fall is in the air, and a good hot soup is always comforting in such weather. There aren’t a lot of ingredients in it, I would have added more vegetables, especially a few carrots, and celery, but my pot was already quite full so I decided to quit while I was ahead.
As expected I had a slower week than last week, but still a successful one. Part of that is my own laziness, because I was not very active last week, but even so, I lost .9 pounds for a total of 54.1 pounds! I have to say that it feels great to put on a freshly laundered t-shirt and not have to pull and stretch it until it feels comfortable. Not to mention, I can wear jeans and actually relax in them, and not feel like I’m squeezed into them. And now on to the good stuff!
I was on vacation for last week and attended a conference for several days, so I was not cooking at home which made this week a great way for me to test my resolve to make better choices, no matter what the situation. I am attempting to make a lifestyle change here, and I know that I can’t always be in complete control of everything, all I can do is make the best choices possible, from what is available to me.
I’m late again. I’ve been considering moving this post to Tuesdays because I don’t weigh in until Monday, and I don’t always have time to write, and/or update the post on Monday morning. I’ll see how it goes for the next couple of weeks before I decide for sure.
I took a vacation day on Monday, but since I wasn’t feeling great I spent my day crafting instead of doing housework and blogging, so I’m a day late posting my progress. I did weigh in first thing in the morning yesterday though
