My Body Doesn’t Want to Lose Weight

At least it sure feels like that most of the time. Here I am at 163.4(ish). I have been here for months. In fact I have been here for years. This is where my body has stalled over and over and over again for the past 3 years.

I am trying to just get past it, so far it isn’t going well but I am trying hard not to give up. I started swimming at the beginning of the month. I have been trying to go 2-3 times a week. I went on Tuesday and swam laps for 90 minutes; sometimes I do a aquasize class or two while I am there. I hope this change of exercise will get my body moving again.

I still struggle with the weekends. I am working hard at planning them ahead of the time. Tonight I am looking at making Light Chicken Francese. Tomorrow night I am thinking Petite Turkey Meatloaves with the garlic mashed potatoes she has linked in that post. I have made the meatloaf and potatoes before and they were fantastic.

On Saturday I think I am going to try to make something I have never made before. Like Enchiladas or Cabbage Rolls – healthy versions of course! Maybe homemade perogies with the Cabbage Rolls? Bad. Bad. I know. I find if I can plan, yummy but healthy recipes to make over the weekend it helps me to stay on track – especially if I buy all the stuff I need before hand; can’t let it go bad!

Sunday morning I want to make Oat Cakes… those are not so good for you. But we all need a little treat once and while. I will probably also make some different things to keep in the fridge to take for lunches and snack on during the week. I really do enjoy cooking!

Especially now with my “new kitchen” – okay new appliances. But it really feels like a whole new kitchen! No more dish washer falling on the floor and an oven with a light in it (that works!). But man, keeping a flat top stove and stainless steel appliances clean… it is an endless battle.

This past weekend I was in beautiful Vancouver British Columbia taking in some 2010 Winter Olympic Games! I got to spend lots of time walking in the mass crowds in downtown and as well I enjoyed three men’s hockey games – back to back – games 15, 16 and 17. A weekend in Vancouver equals not eating very well, but it is over now. Little sad because it was so busy I didn’t get to enjoy any of the things they have set up over there. We stood in one 45 min line up only to get in and find another huge line up. We gave up. Standing in lines for stuff isn’t fun. At least we were there though and we got to see the flame – that is the most important; right?

I am going to try and keep this updated over the weekend with my cooking adventures and pictures. Keeps it interesting and more fun if I share it.

Enjoy your Thursday and…
