Chelsea, I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. That sounds really strange. Let us know how you're doing.
Lifeguard, that's such an awesome loss! Good for you.
I got a new workout in the mail today to cycle in with my 30 Day Shred, and it was actually harder and more fun, so I may put off the Shred for a little bit, because it's boringish. I also got my new scale, and I haven't really lost any weight (about 2 lbs) in this whole month! Ah, well, I'm in much better shape.
Thinking about food, I've been making a huge effort to do more veggies and fruit. I used to just eat them at dinner (and a lot of them!) When I cook for myself I do stuff like substitute pasta with sloooow cooked cut green beans with sauce mixed in. This is yummy. I just use thawed green beans, so it's easy. My husband thinks of this as a side dish, which it can also be. I also use frozen green peas to replace rice and other grains for many things. Just thawed they are great, with salt and olive oil they are yummy, and the best is to sautee some garlic in olive oil (a good amount) and before the garlic browns at all, toss the peas in and stir, then let them cook stirring once or twice for 5 minutes. This is delicious. Add salt to taste during cooking. I rely on frozen veggies a lot because they are just as healthy if not more so at this time of year.
