    P4 Month 4

    Woops. Spoke too soon. I am back up the .8 I was down yesterday. Dang. I think I need to lay off nuts for a while. I have already stopped adding cashews and macadamia nuts to my mix and lightened up on pecans so mostly just almonds but I just need to stop. Also, no more little bits of chocolate mixed in at all! I find myself picking those out by themselves... Not a lot, not even a tablespoon in an evening, but it is all I can find that I am doing that is at all hinky.

    I will stick to yogurt for a bit today, and go easy tonight.

    Rose, keep on it. You got this!

    Thank you, Jayk! I need that encouragement. I'll start going through dresses this weekend and see what still fits, what is still in style and what is still 'age appropriate.' It has only been five years but there is a big difference between 65 and looking 55 and 70 after Covid and looking 105. Mostly how sleeveless can I go? LOL.

    Leez, you must be using my recipe for breakfast: eggs, sausage, avocado, grape (or sliced Compari) tomatoes... Awesome. I also use that almond flour muffin recipe to make myself avocado toast, with a cheese slice, avocado smash and a slice of tomato. I only do that about once a week, but it is a treat.

    Onward.

    Thanks for that muffin recipe, Pearlie. I used it throughout P3 and really enjoyed having some kind of toast with my breakfasts

    PearlyMae, I was told recently to stop eating after 7 pm, supposedly the longer you go between evening eating and breakfast, the better your weight and blood sugar management. So I'm trying that: I have my little piece of chocolate shortly after dinner, instead of waiting until bedtime.

    Pearlie, please correct this if I got it wrong, but basically you make this in the microwave in a round dish.

    Almond flour english muffin:

    3T. fine almond flour
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp baking powder

    HIGH - up to 2 min. When cool, split and toast

    Note: I have successfully subbed 1 T. oat fiber for part of the almond flour. Its a little drier, but still holds together, and cuts the calories back a bit.

    This is exactly what I need to do as well. You could do a 8/16 fasting or a 10/14 if it's harder to maintain. Meaning have a 8 hour window of eating and 16 hours fasting, which includes sleep. Or first try a 10 window of eating, and 14 hour fast. The good thing is you can have bone broth during that fast and it doesn't count as food.

    Thanks for the reminder in wanting to do this.

    P
    Do you eat dark chocolate? They say that is best. I hope you have fun going through the dresses. I know I need to tone up my arms and legs as well. I keep thinking about it, but actually need to get doing it. I need to get my mindset back like I did at Christmas. Here is hoping I can get back on track with exercise and toning.

    Speaking of toning....I just found out there is a daily Essentrics Classical Stretch workout on one of our local PBS stations. Years ago, I went to a live essentrics class once and really loved it. I was fascinated that you could do a major workout with all kinds of unfamiliar and strenuous stretches and not get sore the next day. Its kind of like pilates only much more relaxed and balletic and is focused on working the fascia network that surrounds your muscles and joints for strength, balance and flexibility. It was developed by a Canadian ballet dancer. Even after the first session, I could tell a difference in the range of flexibility in my hips and back.

    This type of workout suits me perfectly. I dance and have some ballet training so there is a familiarity in some of the stretches. Stretching of any kind is my preferred workout out because it suits my personality and energy level. And I love feeling the beauty of fluid, graceful movement. I don't enjoy workouts that make me feel beat up afterward. In this system, there is a rule that you do not push past pain. You work just up to it but never beyond.

    Just posting this as an encouragement to find some kind of workout that you can enjoy doing. But it is important to move somehow, and move whatever still moves! As I age, I am more and more aware that an important component in feeling healthy and whole is being able to move freely without pain.

    P4 Month 4

    So, I am late reading and posting so I get three great ideas all at once!

    Gig, my Uncle, who just turned 90, decided 40 years ago not to eat after 8 p.m. He has stuck to it all these years and never had a weight problem and I was going to say he looks 70 instead of 90, but I'm 70 so let's not go there...

    Jayk, yes I need to get back to it too, and Leez, I will check my PBS listings. We have two on our systems. If I can find them, I will dvr them. I was swimming and doing aqua size and really could tell a difference very quickly. Then my schedule changed and I could not find a class that I could make and even had to stop swim lessons due to eye surgeries. Now I have taken on so many more work responsibilities... yikes. I count it a win if I get a shower, let alone leave the house for two hours to go swim! Maybe this summer will open up a little. Meanwhile, ,maybe PBS will save me.

    Yes, Rose and Leez, that's the right recipe. I think the original said zap for 1 1/2 minutes but my glass prep bowl I was using didn't get it done in that amount. So if it is too crumbly after you toast it, or two heavy before, try cutting back the time a bit.

    However, today I had to try tweaking it. I thought 'It's an English muffin because it is round and it is round because I make it in a round bowl, but what if I had something rectangular to use?'

    And, I make pancakes and waffles from a recipe adapted from Suzanne Somers Oopsy Rolls, which are just egg and cream cheese, with vanilla. She put 'Somersweet' in them, but I found they were great without any sweetener. ( 1 egg, 1 oz cream cheese, 1/2 tsp vanilla, stir until a batter and pour into small waffle maker or pancake griddle. I triple it to make about 4 toaster size waffles and 6 or 7 or (8? Haven't done it lately, so sorry on the number) pancakes. I freeze them and then toss into toaster and wrap around a sausage link going out the door.) No, I do not digress... much... this is where I got the idea to tweak.

    So, today, I found a slightly longer than a square plastic storage tub, and mixed melted butter and softened cream cheese (1 T butter 1 oz cream cheese) then mixed in the almond flour, baking powder and egg. It is, of course, wider than the round bowl, so it only filled it up less than an inch. I only zapped it for 1 1/2 minutes because it was so thin. But then I had a pretty big piece of 'bread." It was still pretty thin, so just cut it in two across instead of trying to slice it. No crumbles, more like bread in softness even toasted. Wow. Amazingly, it fit into my toaster. Who knew?

    Yes, I when I let myself add chocolate chips to the nut mix, it's dark chocolate ones. Not as dark as baking chocolate but at least darker than usual.

    Usually, when I am dying for chocolate, I satisfy with a cup of Swiss Miss Reduced Calorie hot chocolate.(5 carbs!) I add about 6 ounces of water to the mix and then add another couple of ounces of heavy whipping cream. Divine.

    However, I went to three stores today and nobody had it anymore. They have the No Sugar Added one that has SEVENTEEN carb grams, (not sure what they replaced sugar with, but it must be STARCHY!) and the regular that is 22, OR 27. I don't remember because I put it back on the shelf at the store like it bit me.

    However, I did find Nestle Zero that also has 5 carb grams, so maybe I will live. I tried it and I think I like Swiss Miss a bit better, but it will do. It has Splenda as a sweetener. I know it is okay for me, as I had it all the way through P3 probably once a week, and have even, when desperate, had it in P2 with no bad result. In P4, I've had it again at least once a week. It takes care of that I need a little something something feeling, where you feel Put Upon and want CHOCOLATE D@Mn it! It is NOT what raised me up a couple pounds this week, as I have been out of it for over a month. And missing it!

    Woops. WRote a novel. Sorry about that!

    I was down a whole POINT 2 today. Must keep going....

    The small piece I eat of 85% dark chocolate from Trader Joe's is 15 g, 81 cals, and 8.4g carbs. Intense enough flavor to be satisfying, yet low enough in carbs so I don't feel guilty. I do need to figure values for my Sam's 85%, though.
