First, thanks for the support. It is easier when you feel like you have people who are cheering you on! So thanks!. I took the weekend off from posting, mostly cause I don't get to my computer often during the weekend. So this weekend was really good. I ate more calories but this was good cause I haven't been reaching my calories. I went to my niece and nephew's 2nd Birthday party and felt I did so well at not eating and came away feeling good with myself.
Yesterday I made my first batch of Quinoa and I think it turned out well. I cooked it with corn, broccoli, onion, parsley, garlic, and some lemon and lime juice. It tastes good and I am happy with it. I figured out for two cups of it I will get about 288 calories! Not bad if I say so myself!
Yesterday was a really good day, I went to church and the speakers spoke on having hope for our lives. It was what I needed to hear. We don't always see the path Heavenly Father has us on but he does and at a fireside with Barbara Thompson last night she told us that he does know our path, he has a plan and he will make it work. I have to continue to have faith and hope that I am on his path and he will lead me in the direction I need to grow and become what I need to in order to return to live with him. I love to be spiritually fed and I was ready to be yesterday.
So the news you are all waiting to hear is how did I do? How did my first week pan out? Well I lost my first.... 7 pounds! yeah!! I am so excited! Here is to another good week.
