But not too relaxed to be successful! I lost 4 lbs in the 2 weeks I was gone! I have NEVER lost weight on vacation before. I wasn't hungry at all. And I ate delicious food. My mom joined me for part of my vacation and she ate healthy with me the whole time and didn't complain once. She is a woman who lives mostly on chocolate, prime rib, and pastries - if she can do it anyone can.
Here is a link to a wonderful Veggie Lasagna that I've made twice now. I used whole wheat noodles and added a light sprinkling of pine nuts to the top. It was so so good! A little salty - but you know how I feel about salt - yum! I got this recipe from the FatFree Vegan Blog one of my favorite sources for recipe ideas. Check her out.
Also - big news on the running front:
I ran 2 miles on Saturday!Ack! I have never run 2 miles in my life! I'm pretty sure I ran/walked 1 mile in high school - but never 2 miles! I can't believe I did it!
