If you’d like me to post how to make the zucchini spaghetti and meat sauce, please let me know. It is so easy and really delicious. I just don’t know what you hotties want to see or not, so I’m open.
It’s Day 3! Typically Day 2 is the killer, but I keep myself pretty busy and I am so driven to do this I am not about to screw this up.
Are you getting ready for this weekend? If you live in the US, it’s Labor Day Weekend, a huge holiday for last-hurrah type outdoor cooking, since fall will be autumning pretty soon. Whether you live in the US or not, there are so many options for cooking out!
I have included 20 recipes that are 5 net or less (desserts 6 net or less) that are perfect for backyard barbecues and picnics and anywhere you share with others (or yourself). I hope you’ll give some a try, take a walk after dinner, and enjoy your long weekend.
While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to provide some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on and help you hold your pants on when your drawers try to drop due to weight loss.

Wednesday, August 28
I ate this:
Breakfast: Blackberries (4), 10 slices pepperoni, 1 slice American cheese, Diet Coke
Lunch: Zucchini pasta with Just the Beef Chili, a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese + Diet Hansen’s Root Beer
Snack: Hormel Pepperoni Stick + Diet Coke
Dinner: Baked Potato Salad and Coleslaw
Notes: I’ve had so much energy the last two days that I have been on cooking overdrive. I love the energy I have!
I had an upset tummy so I watched Top Chef and went to bed. Boo! Boo silly tummy!
Little steps make better habits.
Starting out on an eating plan after taking some time off means sometimes undoing some bad habits. I began a diet soda habit I had given up for awhile. Still, I’m not going to sweat it. I am going to make small, healthy changes.
1. I am keeping soda intake to 4 or less per day, maximum, and for meals.
2. I am drinking water in between meals, and always keep a chilled glass of water with me. I also try to drink at least 16 ounces of water after working out.
Two little changes from “all soda all the time.” Eventually I won’t need the fizzy anymore, or it will become a more rare occasion. For now, though, I am enjoying what soda gives me in terms of the fizzies, and I know that by keeping cold water on hand at all times, I am slowly making the change to less sweeteners and a sweeter life.
What one little change are you making to improve your health?
