Who Eats Out of a Measuring Cup?
Saturday, October 19, 2019
This week in the 5% Challenge we are doing portion control where you read/know the portion size then measure/weigh all your food and drinks. This afternoon I was having a yogurt snack, so I looked at the container, serving size 1/3 cup 35 calories. OK I fill the 1/3 measuring cup, get the mini spoon and start eating. I have been eating out of measuring cups for years - salad, soup, cereal, nuts, cottage cheese and more. Why mess up a bowl?
My new puppy Rebel is my exercise coach. Thanks to her I am getting frequent movement, lots of steps and bend and stretch, but less sleep as she wakes me during the night for potty breaks. Puppies have small bladders so when she is awake she needs to go out every 30 minutes.
Last night she had a sleepover at my daughter's so her 3 cats could initiate Rebel's polite behavior around cats. At 9 weeks old, she is smaller than the cats and hopefully, this works. The cats ignored her (just a little hiss). Today friends have stopped by to meet the puppy and cuddle her. She likes attention and is quick to offer a lick.
Tonight we are going to a friend's dinner party, so Slimfast for breakfast and a light lunch. I want that scale going down for my next TOPS weigh in!
