Tonight for dinner we cooked a perfect two person portion, according to the package, soba noodle stir fry. It came with the noodles and sauce, all low and null of fat, calories, chol., and sodium. I added in one tablespoon of soy sauce, firm tofu, steamed broccoli, steamed shatake mushrooms, and steamed peas/carrots. So, basically it was a basic tofu stir fry. It was light, a correct individual profortion, completely natural because we purchased everything at Ozark Natural Foods, filling, and healthy. I have to be honest, that was the first great meal we've had in terms of our new lifestyle and goals.
I have classes twice a week and Scott works five days a week. We've been helping one another keep up the workout. I had no idea how hard it really was to do actual workouts, because walking is so easy. Two weeks ago when I used the elliptical machine at a fast and steady pace I was tired within 15 minutes. I made sure regardless of how little time I was on, though, to get my heart rate up so that it was actually aerobic. I can now do 30 minutes, but I take a small break here and there. I can tell this is going to be a long and slow uphill battle, but I am in it completely. Scott and I will do this! My goal of 100 pounds seems unrealistic and far away to me right now; now that I see how difficult this will be. Doesn't matter, though. We are determined and ready and willing to take this road however long and hard it may be!
