Half a pound gone. It’s a start. I still haven’t gotten intense with dieting. Just watching what I eat, trying to make healthy choices and jogging in the pool for twenty minutes a day.
Last night’s dinner was really good. I marinated thick slices of pork tenderloin in orange juice, lime juice, a little oregano and cumin, olive oil, salt and a bit of Splenda. Then I seared it, added half the marinade, put a lid on it and let it simmer until the pork was done and the marinade was reduced to nothing. Then I removed the pork and threw some sliced yellow peppers, onions, and zucchini in the pan, gave them a quick saute, added the rest of the marinade and served the veggies over the pork. I topped it all with a few slices of fresh mango. Man, talk about delicious! I wrote it in here so I can remember what I did. It was definitely a keeper.
Got a full day of work today and tomorrow. All day inservice from 8:30 to 3:30. Since it’s 7:30 now, I guess I should start moving. Also have dinner with the girls tonight. That’ll be fun!
Oh, BTW, DH actually walked in the pool yesterday without me nagging. At least, he said he did and the grandkids backed him up. DS and I had to go to Little Sister’s and help her set up an above-ground pool she got on clearance and he says he did laps while I was gone. Come to think of it, that was one heck of a workout. Shoveling and leveling that daggone pool in 96 degrees. Should have burned off a few calories.
