Thursday Morning...

Good Morning!

My glucose came in @112 this morning

Getting close to the end of my Sprint week, and I'm feeling good but starting to feel kinda wiped out...one more day until my weigh-in and hopefully all of my hard work and mindful efforts will bring the elusive 100+ pounds lost for me since starting in Sept. 2009

So it's been a great week, extremely focused and determined and have really enjoyed this pace...and without adding any voodoo, I'm feeling pretty confident about weighing-in tomorrow!

Yesterday was technically a rest day...so not too much...but I did my 50 sit-ups/crunches and then I did an extra set of laps for cardio 20 minutes after dinner last night.

Annette turned us onto these really great flatbreads as an alternative to bread and a good source of protein with flaxseed in them too. So Cindy used them for me last night and made a really delicious tomato/basil bruschetta to go w/my blackened salmon + aspargus last night for dinner. As I was eating dinner, I was just shocked at not only how good everything tasted but that everything was absolutely healthy.

*The flat breads were called "Flatouts" flatbreads...100 calories per, 17 carbs, and 9 proteins...in case you wanted to find another option in your grocery story...I think they were like $4 or 5 bucks for a pack of ten or so.

Ok cool, heading into the end of March...making a real rally with my nutrition & fitness and as ever...trying to hammer it hard with work and close the month strong with sales!

I hope everyone has a really Super Thursday, Ryan

    Yum to the salmon and flatouts...the latter are a regular staple for me...love to toast 'em till they're brittle and break 'em up to scoop up salsa! Or even just eat plain...nice CRUNCH! And great for fiber! :-)

    Glad to see you're embracing all kinds of new foods that are better for you! I thought I'd pass along something even healthier. Those flatouts, while lower in calories, still are loaded with added oils, sugar, & preservatives. I'd recommend giving Sprouted Grain Breads a try. They're made just from grains, water, yeast & salt - just what bread is supposed to be. Sprouting the grains makes the bread more nutritious. It is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and natural fiber with no added fat. Its a little different from regular, processed breads in that it is nice & heavy & hearty. Kind of has a nutty flavor & is great toasted.

    Here's a blog about it from Coach Nicole: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_p

    You can find the Ezekiel brand at Whole Foods, Woodmans, & some other grocery stores around Madison. They'll be in the FREEZER section, often with the gluten free foods. A whole loaf is under $5.

    In addition to loaves of bread they make sprouted grain tortillas, english muffins, buns & pastas too! http://www.foodforlife.com/index.ht

    Flatouts make a great low cal pizza as well. We make a lot of pizzas on them from time to time. I like them as a wrap with salmon and cucumbers too. Keep up the good work.
