Weighing in: Week 5
I started working specifically on incorporating more salads/fresh veggies into my diet. My friend Elisha shared a comment that one of her favorite lunches is a tortilla wrap with hummus and raw veggies. That sounded really yummy to me, so I tried it! I am not a big fan of chick peas, but hummus has always sounded interesting, so I made some using this recipe. I'll admit, the first day I wasn't crazy about it--I didn't hate it, just wasn't sure how I liked it. But I think it definitely improves with time. I used store bought tortillas the first couple times I tried this, then today I made some wheat ones using this recipe. Let me tell you, the wheat ones really make a difference--YUM!! They're a bit more work, but cheaper and really delicious. I added lettuce, green & red pepper, and tomato to mine. I also added a little shredded mozzarella a few times, and these were delicious either way. Thanks, Elisha, for the great tip!!
So this week I want to continue using lots of veggies, do my workout DVD at least 4-5 times, and drink more water. I slacked off on that a bit last week, but am back on track today. How are the rest of you guys doing? Let's encourage each other!!
