Day 2 of 57

Still focused on eating well!

It sure helps to know I am reporting on my blog.

After going to see Jurassic World, we were hungry. After walking around the food court at the mall we left. We were uninspired as to what to get. On the way home,  John said "How about Waba Grill?"

I looked up their menu on my phone. I had all the ingredients for their teriyaki chicken bowls at home!

So we went home and while the brown rice was cooking, I cut up the carrots and broccoli to steam, thawed out a bag of frozen diced cooked chicken breast and whipped up the teriyaki sauce.  We had a great meal.
I did not have as much rice as John did. Here is my bowl. The 4 pills: 2 are the Cholestoff, and 2 are my CoQ10 Omega 3 pills. Oh...and I had some raspberries and yogurt for dessert...1/2 cup.

For breakfast I had raspberries, macadamia nuts, 5 prunes and lots of lemon water before that. Lunch was s salmon sandwich with a sliced tomato and some lettuce and Ranch dressing.

For a snack before the movie I made us chocolate shakes out of frozen bananas, cocoa and coconut milk.
I feel like I am on a roll here.  I am committed! I have resisted temptation the last 2 days! I laugh at temptation!  Even as I write I am a bit hungry but I do not care. Ha...I laugh at my so called hunger!

My big challenge will be to exercise. Exercise is great for lowering cholesterol, so I have heard.
Now, If I lived where there were great bike paths, I would have no problem riding my bike for hours every day...doing errand or just enjoying nature. But alas..where I live, there is no good place to ride a bike. I do have my stationery bike but it is so boring...even if I watch TV while using it.
I have not exercised the last 2 days, other than regular household tasks.


In a saucepan, heat up...

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon Ginger
1/4  teaspoon garlic powder
5 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1-2 Tablespoons honey (I used 1)

Separately mix 2 Tablespoon cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water and stir to make a slurry...pour into saucepan with the other hot ingredients and cook (stirring with whisk) until thick, adding more water if it is too thick.
