90-day challenge

I’m doing this 90-day challenge with my friend Jessica.  It’s the ViSalus meal replacement protein shakes (if interested: http://rainnnaturelover.myvi.net/).  You do 2 a day and then eat a healthy meal for dinner, maybe even a healthy snack or two as well.  Anyway, I’ve got to start getting serious about it.  But that goes with resisting my binge eating urges.  If I can get a handle on those urges 85% of the time, I’ll be doing great.

There are over 100 recipes to make with the shake mix to make all sorts of smoothies and shakes and coolers.  Today I went to the store and bought a whole bunch of stuff for this purpose and I can’t wait to start trying them!  The recipes I’ve tried so far have all been really good.  So I’m excited to start trying some of these other recipes.  I bought a good assortment of frozen fruits (peaches, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, pineapple, and mango) and juices and even Sprite Zero to make a spritzer cooler with the mix.

Last night after work I baked some zucchini bread.  It came out a little dry and heavy because I over substituted with the whole wheat flour.  I think I did like a ¾ or more substitution when it shouldn’t have been more than a ½ substitution.  It still tastes good; it’s just a little dry and heavy.  I know better for next time.  But, now I’m all in the mood to cook and bake things.  So, I’m thinking early next week I’ll make me an enchilada casserole, family recipe.  That’s one of my favorites.
