So far, so good. ;-)

So far things are going well with our diet. We have been using recipes from The Hungry Girl. We checked out the following two cookbooks from the library:


I have to say the first couple of days were very difficult, but the food had nothing to do with it. Let's just say that when your body (digestive tract) is not "normal" due to a horrible diet, and you suddenly change to a high fiber diet, but you are also dehydrated, because you do not drink enough water; this causes a severe stomach ache.

The stomach ache/problem is still here, but not as bad. I am trying to rectify the problem, and it is getting better. Just takes time. :-)

We have changed the time we go to gym, so we can be more consistent. This morning we were in the pool at 6:30 am. :-) I think this will work better for us. :-)

"Little Mark" has really liked the recipes we have used so far, and is even looking through the books to pick out others to try. Let me share one of the recipes we tried this week.

Kickin' Chicken Pot Pie

8 oz of boneless, skinless chicken (baked or boiled.) I used 98% fat free, canned white meat chicken.
98% fat free Cream of Celery Soup
3 C of frozen mixed vegetables
Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls

Combine chicken, soup and veggies in a 9 inch round dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Stir. Remove 3 crescent rolls from the package. Form into a small dough ball and roll into a thin circle. Lay on top of mixture and replace in oven for 15-20 minutes, until top is golden brown. Serves 4. Enjoy! :-)

It was quick, inexpensive, and tasted wonderful. We served it with a spinach salad. :-)
