Month 3 Weigh In

WEIGH IN...I haven't blogged in about a week, but I have awesome news...During March I lost a total 14 lbs.!!! That's a total 32 lbs. since January!!! Made me feel awesome!!! A lot of people have been complementing me on my weight loss, I notice it sometimes, but most of the time I can't really tell much...I'm sure it's just because I see myself every day :/

Starting weights a couple of weeks ago has been tough, I had to ask the owner of the gym to help me out. The biggest problem I have is with abs...he showed me some really great work outs on the equipment that I am excited to use...I want to do more than crunches. Yoga is getting easier each week, I find myself not struggling as much :D


Tonight I experimented in the kitchen :O and it was delicious to say the least...below is a pic and the recipe:

4 3oz. pieces salmon
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 medium onion
2 cups of brown rice
Low fat balsamic vinaigrette dressing

1. I chopped all my vegetables up and first put the onion in the skillet and let them begin to cook on medium (about 3 mins) 2. I added the rest of the vegetables and let them cook while I started my rice 3. Next I added the salmon to the skillet with the vegetables and cook on high for about 4-6 mins (turning over half away), or until the salmon is almost fully cooked 4. Add as much dressing as you want to the skillet (I did about 2 tbs.) and let everything cook for about 2-3 more mins covered on medium/high heat 5. Finally I put a spoon full and a half of rice on the plate, placing the salmon and vegetables on top, IT WAS SOO GOOD!
