A Competition is Launched!

My friend Cindy in Mesquite, Nevada, has challenged me to a month-long weight loss contest. She's a wonderful budding chef who finds these great, healthy recipes. I've been lucky enough to indulge in her cooking a few times, but I didn't get to try this one: a BLT wrap with colorful coleslaw. (That looks like turkey bacon, by the way.) Our challenge started today. Whoever loses the competition has to take the winner out for dinner. Better save up your money, Cindy!!

Today was a good day for me, although at 7 pm I realized I'd only had about 850 calories. Oops. That's because I'd forgotten to eat as soon as I got home home from . I broke the don't-eat-after-7 pm rule and made my yummy salmon salad, but I'd still had too few calories so I made a smoothie, using low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of the protein powder. (Today was not a workout day, but I will be in the gym tomorrow).

It's amazing that so much food only comes to 1600 calories. Makes me wonder if I'm eating enough to lose weight although I did lose 5 lbs. last week. Good luck in your competition. With your determination I'm sure you'll win.(BTW, my blog is blocked because their system mistakenly took it for a "spam blog." I emailed them and I'm waiting for it to be reinstated. Sheesh!)
