First Friday Weigh In

I know, it's only been two days but we have to start sometime. So, if you're's first weigh in day. If you're not ready, then weigh in next week.

Good news for me. I've already lost 3.5 pounds. My husband is down 1.4kg - yes, he weighs himself in kilos, just to be annoying.

He also ran the whole 5km run for the first time in a long, long time. He's been working up to it and today he DID IT. Hooray!

I took our little guy to a cooking class today where we learned how to make homemade ketchup and then we used our ketchup to make cupcakes. Weird...yes...deffinately. It was a lot like a spice cake or a carrot cake and had a really nice cream cheese icing.

If anybody's interested, the recipe for homemade ketchup is:
1 small can of tomato paste
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup water
1 pinch ground cloves
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 pinch allspice
Combine in a bowl, mix well. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

I took a chance at dinner tonight and prepared mussels for the very first time. We're not sick yet, so I'm going to chalk it up as a success. They were a little bland compared to the mussels we usually get in restaurants, but they weren't bad. We even got the three-year-old to eat a few.

So how'd you do? Did you weigh yourself this Friday or are you waiting until next week?


  1. I started my diet sunday and i am down 4lbs this week. sucess. I have had a bad day today cheating but if I keep up for the rest of the week I don't think it will be too devastating to me. I have no desire to eat this much again. I have also been able to work out every single day this week somedays twice even when I really really didn't want to so I am proud for that. I've also lost about 1" off of every part of me that I measure.

  2. I started on Sept 1st and I'm down .8 of a pound...better than nothing! I went to bed hungry last night :( No nighttime snacking!

  3. I am down 2lbs, not sure how I did that must have been retaining water. The only thing I have changed is drinking my 8 cups of water a day and have been watching what I eat. I will start working out on tuesday.
