I did about 15 minutes worth of abs exercises (including planks) Friday and I'm still sore! Crazy, I tell you. Under my protective layer of fat I'm going to have a killer six pack! I had to get out the yoga mat for the planks because last time I got carpet burns. Ouch. My kitteh decided to try some yoga moves too. I think she did it wrong.
Check out this cute idea for tracking weight loss. I'm a visual person so this is right up my alley. Though I'm not crafty at all. Would it be wrong to fill these with M&Ms? Just wondering. Or chocolate covered almonds? Think I'll stick with marbles. Hey! If I lose weight does it mean I've lost my marbles?!
HERE. So very clever, don't ya think? Instructions HERE.
Saw this shirt at Target and almost got it but I could see my hand when I held it under the shirt. Don't want to walk around giving peep shows all day. Why can't white cotton shirts be thicker?! But cute shirt nontheless.
Sunday the family got in Vincent Van Go (the miniature van) and headed to Beaumont area to see my parents. My mom's birthday was last week so I brought her some goodies.
The birthday cake was this low carb Pecan Pie Cheesecake. Delicious! And only 2.6 grams net carbs per slice!
Just look at it! Mmmm.....so good. Everybody loved it.
The recipe is by Kent Altena and can be found in Low Carbing Among Friends cookbook.

I also made up a batch of these peanut butter bars. They remind me a lot of Reese's. Yum! I think it's 1.9 grams net carbs each.
These are from another recipe by Mr. Altena. Everything I've made from his blog has been great. As a matter of fact, the family was cravin his Garlic Parmesan wings again Saturday so Chuck and I made up a big batch. I'm thinking of trying them with chicken strips instead of wings next time.
All in all a very good weekend. It's a Monday which means it's time for me to go for a run! See ya tomorrow. :)
