doing good

So Grumpy and I decided a couple of weeks ago after I found a vegetarian version of the South Beach Diet to give it our best. We both could stand to lose a few pounds and our life style needs a bit of improving. Coincidently Cherry launched the The Bloggest loser Launch which we went and joined. So we have been pretty good the past view days. Like today I made cauliflower mash potatoes and green beans for dinner and I went to the community center which has a olympic size pool to get a punch card. I went ahead and tested the water, I did 24 laps (25yards as they had the pool converted) in a little under 20 min so that wasn't to terrible since I am out of shape and the swimsuit was to big. I'll go back tomorrow now that I dug out my speedo swimsuit. Being at the restaurant last night was pretty hard. It was dead and that garlic bread looked and smelled sooooo good. I didn't give it in but it was hard. I snacked on some cucumbers. As it got time to close I went to ask the cooks if I could have a veggie soup. They had made pasta but went ahead and made me some soup, unfortunately the owner was in a pissy mood and I got chewed out for getting something extra made. Well one more week and 4 days to go with no carbs then we get to reintroduce them in small amounts. Even thou I have to say the cauliflower mash potatoes where really really good.

"cauliflower mash potatoes and green beans" ... mein Gott, dass ist doch kein Leben so! Was du brauchst ist ne grosse Pizza mit Salami und extra Mozzarella!

Katy said...

Pour a little whiskey and roasted garlic into the mashed potatoes, really picks 'em up.

Soup is good, I like minestrone, may make some this weekend and put the recipe up.

How many carbs in a Leberkäse sandwich? I could kill for one of those. Making beef rouladens this weekend. Just trying to help you with the diet thing.

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your note. Yup, I realize you wrote it on my blog over a month ago, but it's been a while since I had computer access. Africa, and all that. Besides, it's the thought that counts, right?
