Half Way

Well…halfway to the weekend! Yay!

Last night for dinner I made whole wheat waffles. I have used the waffle recipe out of the original Betty Crocker cookbook for my entire life (my mom uses it too.) Recently I started switching in 1/2 whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, and lo-and behold….hubby likes them BETTER than the original. So, back to dinner last night. I made the waffles, but for some reason they were flat and soggy. I rechecked the ingredients list and I did not leave anything out. The only thing I came up with is that this is my first time making these in our “new” house which does not have air conditioning. It was very very warm and HUMID last night. Would that make a big difference? Here’s the real kicker….hubby was on his third (yes third!) waffle when he stops with his fork half way up and says, “Honey, these are the best waffles you’ve ever made.” I don’t know that I will be able to make soggy, flat waffles all the time just to make him happy!

On to today:

Breakfast: Oatmeal+raisins+brown sugar


Snack: Quaker Oatmeal Squares


Lunch: GIANT salad (lots of veggies to use up before they went bad!)
Spring mix lettuce
Romaine lettuce
1/2 green pepper
Fresh (although cooked) green beans
Dried cranberries
Flax Seed
Fat free feta cheese
Hard boiled egg
Reduced fat Catalina dressing





Peanut butter filled pretzels


Snack: White chocolate macadamia nut Clif Bar


Dinner: I forgot to get meat out, so it might be homemade pizza

Going for a run tonight…..Hoping to run 2 ENTIRE miles with no walking. My legs are still stiff from Monday, but running seems to loosen them up. That first 1/4 mile or sore is just a little painful!


Great news! I just found out that my BEST FRIEND from college is coming to visit me 2 weeks from today! She lives about three hours away and I haven’t seen her since my WEDDING on 09-08-07! She will be staying with me for 3 days, so that means a 5 day weekend for me! Can’t wait! (I’m sure there will be some bad food choices, but I need to not obsess about it, just be smart and not overindulge!)

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
