So, I gained a pound. Not too too horrible in the whole scheme of things. The way I ate last week should have resulted in a much higher gain. I was kind of out of control. But this week I feel more in control, my determination is back, I feel like "I can do this!"
So here's to keeping on, slow and steady. :)
I have a good friend who is doing WW with me, and we're perfect partners. Neither of us takes it too seriously, but at the same time we don't excuse each other/ourselves from doing what we're supposed to.
Now, on to the helpful hints. :-D
*Wash out your coffee pot after every use. The oils from the coffee build up on the carafe and get bitter/rancid. Washing with soap and water gets rid of the residue.
*Sprinkle a little salt over your coffee grounds to make it more smooth and less bitter. I also add a little cinnamon to the grounds and it makes it really yummy.
*You can take any boxed cake mix and combine it with a 15oz can of pureed pumpkin and it makes great muffins or cakes. No oil, water or egg needed. Just the mix and the pumpkin. This week I took a Swiss Chocolate cake mix and combined it with fresh raspberry puree and made muffins that are pretty good.
*You can wash your hair with baking soda and vinegar, and it makes it kind of beach-wavy. It also strips any residue build up that your shampoo/conditioner may have left behind. True story.
