FRIDAY and its a HUNGRY GIRL DAY, EXACTLY WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH PB2 and my MUSHROOM OMELETTE

OKAY shortest book review EVER!!!!.. GET THE HUNGRY GIRL COOKBOOK you will love it!!!!! you can get it through Amazon at the best price..
IF there is one complaint not many pictures in the book but you can find all the pictures to the recipes on her website .. Simply a great investment with easy recipes and fun ideas for everyone in your family.. A lot of the recipes are single portion sizes so adjust accordingly... at the very least sign up for her weekday newsletter .. okay its a rinky dink review but this really is a great book and an easy read with uncomplicated recipes.. which I love.. Steve and I are going to build our own recipe book with favorite healthy recipes in it. We will opt for a big binder with plastic jacketed pages.. simple and cheap thats us LOL.. I am going to start collecting things we like and typing up things we have created. Will feature recipes in the blog of things we like ..
SO I guess you are wondering what the scale says ... here is the total for this week.. * remember I started the program on Monday so this is only after 4 days.. as opposed to a full week which next week will be..
STARTING WEIGHT: 190.4
CURRENT WEIGHT : 188
GOAL WEIGHT: 132
and a loss of 2.4 pounds. Thats okay.. I was hoping for a big loss but truth is .. prior to WW I was watching what I was eating.. so my calories were not that high minus the crazy eating weekend prior to starting.. so I will take the 2.4 pounds as a sign that I am on the right track! The reason it stings a bit is because just thinking of all the effort and work I put into this past week for 2.4 pounds you know.. and how quickly I can gain that weight.. with simply no effort at all.. hmmm I guess that which wish we work hard for is more valued when it is accomplished ..A loss is a loss no matter what the amount!
I also was really proud last night as well.. I took the hill all by myself.. I put my Ipod on.. walked up the small hill toward the BIG HILL walked the big hill came down went down the other street and back up then back down to where we live.. so I had a nice walk.. It is still in the liesurely phase no real speed to it yet.. but I will soon try and walk a little faster .. on the flatter areas and the down hill areas.. the up hill areas , the BIG hill for example takes me a little bit of time to get up.. but I DID IT!..
Food from Thursday..
Here is what I do with PB2 I mix it with a little water as you will see below.. and spread it on bread ( light wheat 1 pt for 2 slices ,bread) .. Also you will see the making of our dinner last night.. a Mushroom Omelette.. very easy to do..

GOOD for you on the walking, girlie. The ipod makes it doable for me. Although I haven't walked much lately!

THAT mushroom omelet looks scrumptious!!
