#fivemonthsandcounting

sorry a day late but i thought i would check in with my progress. i have lost two pounds since last monday bringing me down to 146lbs. i am not really noticing any huge difference inch wise, but it is early in the game so no worries. big news though: i get my wedding dress friday! i ordered it blind off an online wholesale company saving me TONS of money on the designer dress of my dreams. it was made to my measurements (i have to send them like 50) so i want to be careful not to lose or gain to much to avoid some major alterations. so stay tuned for news on that!
i couldn't bring myself to do any p90x dvd's today-i was tired and grouchy. then to top it off i totally tried to cover up my crappy day with a candy bar. which made me feel more crappy. fail.
we have been having a lot of fun clean eating. of course we haven't been perfect at it with two lower calorie visits to red robin this weekend and road trip junk food when we went on a day trip to camano island.
i finished of week one doing p90x with higher endurance, more flexibility, and the desire to keep going! for this first week i just alternated through the cardio, kempo, plyomentrics, and ab ripper dvd's in no real order. saturday morning tim and i even did one together<--that was fun!
one of my favorite recipes this week was something the f.hubs whipped up. it was so so yummy! you are going to start to learn that we really like fresh lemon in our foods!


INGREDIENTS:

1 pound fresh asparagus
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large lemon, zest and juice only
Pinch salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 pint red grape tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise

PREPARATION:

In a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, blanch the asparagus until just tender, 1 to 2 minutes for very thin spears, 4 to 5 minutes for thick spears. Drain and place in an ice water bath until completely chilled. Drain well. Cut the asparagus into 1-inch pieces. 

Combine the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper. Toss the asparagus with the oil dressing and the tomatoes and serve.
this week we also tried: 
baked brown rice
bacon-y bok choy

and tonight some steak tacos! that i am going to miss since i will be at the planning meeting for bloggers for babies (march of dimes) headed up by mandy from harper's happening! feel free to click on the first link and donate for an amazing cause-even $1 helps!

Ahhh I do that with candy too. Eat when I feel bad, but then feel bad about eating it. It's a vicious cycle!

Nice work! Two pounds is awesome!
I'm proud of you for keeping up with the clean eating (even if you have cheat days, that's ok too!) because it is hard work!
