So far, I've made the following:
- my own doctored lowfat no noodles or rice version of chicken paprikash (I substitute noodles with green beans; I use boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of a whole fatty chicken, and it only takes one hour to make)
- a delicious western scrambled egg thing for breakfast this morning
- stir fry for dinner tonight that smells fabulous and which I will be eating momentarily
In other news, I've stuck to my resolution to drink 48 oz. of water a day, and let me tell you, my skin looks amazing, as does my hair. I think I've been dehydrated my whole life.
I have no idea whether I'm actually losing weight - I'm not allowing myself back on the scale (ooh, that was a rude awakening on New Year's morning) until next Sunday. But I did go to the gym today (didn't start with that as quickly as I'd planned to do because I was sick) and I have plans to go throughout this week, thus getting myself into the routine before I'm back in session with school. Whatever the case, I think that the new year is getting off to a good start in terms of the fitness goals.
So that's all the news from here. Other than that, there's been a lot of quality time with the Man-Kitty and a lot of recording what I watch on TV for the Neilsen People (and, incidentally, I am learning that I watch less tv than I thought I did. Interesting.)
