Sorry it’s been so long in between posts. Right now, my life is so busy and full that I am lucky to be managing one post a month. Hopefully, that is about to change. Above is a photo of my new office “assistant” and with her “help” I hope to be able to eliminate distractions and get more done each day. I emphasize the word “hope.”
In other news, I weighed in two days ago, and discovered I have lost an additional 8 pounds since I began my journey to lose weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle earlier this year. This makes my total weight loss a whopping 25 pounds.
My clothes are definitely beginning to feel loser, and look baggy. An unexpected result of my new diet is that I am managing to reduce my food bill and I’m saving money while I shed pounds and calories.
One of the healthiest, and most frugal changes to my diet is that I am now eating a lot of homemade soup. Making soup allows me to use up leftovers, add in fresh vegetables, and, increase the number and type of vegetables I am consuming each day.
According to recommendations from the U.S. Food Guide Food Pyramid, adults need 4 to 5 servings of vegetables a day. That’s a task that’s pretty easy to accomplish when one of your main meals is soup.
In the coming days, I will be posting recipes of some of my favorite soup recipes made with items that are low cost and nutritious. Next month, if all goes well, I will also post updated photos to visually document my weight loss.
