    Foodie Friday :)

    Tonight I'm making one of my daughter's childhood faves. I'll be here only 3 more nights before heading back home to Québec, and we're eating

    MISHMASH
    I used to make this for my kids to get them to eat more vegetables. It's easiest with a food processor to grate all the veggies, but any method will do!

    Lentils (brown or green best) - cook a batch of the total amount you want (1-2 cups) depending on your family size. Just cook in water with no salt.

    Grate finely:
    1 onion - keep separate
    2-4 carrots
    1 large wedge of cabbage (or more!) - red or green
    1 small sweet potato

    Sauté the onion in 1 T. oil until liquid is mostly gone and the onion is sweet and translucent. I like to grate it really fine so it is almost just mush with no pieces, but any fineness will do.

    Add:
    Mild curry powder, or a mix of cumin, turmeric, ground coriander seed, cardamom - any curry spices you like. Make it hot if you want. Put in some salt, and sauté until the spices are aromatic and it is slightly browned. If you like the curry a bit more tomato-y, add some tomato puree or 1 fresh tomato finely diced, and sauté until most of the liquid is gone.

    Add:
    all the rest of the veggies

    Cover and simmer until the veggies are getting soft, then put in the cooked lentils. Stir it all up and cook until quite soft. Adjust salt to taste, and sweeten if your veggies have not done the job. Sometimes I put in a bit of ketchup, but now that the kids aren't kids anymore, I skip that! Serve over rice or with naan. Or just eat it with a spoon.

    Sounds yummy and healthy

    Happy Saturday everyone!

    Treebek Saturday Weigh In: 197.2

    Had kind of a crappy week on the scale and went back and forth between 197-198.8 all week 😢

    I stayed consistent with logging and did great with food choices but the scale was just not my friend this week. I did not work out all week either so that could be it. Started TOM today so hoping this coming week works out better!

    Self-care Saturday -

    Today I’m going to go to the gym and get a good work out and color my roots (they need it bad lol)

    Also great news for me yesterday, I have been stressing because last month I did some fasting BG checks at home and my readings came back high so I went to my doc and got my blood checked and my A1C is totally normal! Not only that, my fasting BG level was in the normal range. So I’m not pre-diabetic and he said I don’t have to take metformin any more! I am so happy about this 😁

    DAILY REFLECTIONS:

    Sorry team. I have struggled checking in this week. I've struggled with everything actually. My shoulder pain and issues have kept me down in the dumps all week and put me in a very self destructive mood. I have had no exersise since Monday, My intake has been blah but luckily I've stayed on top of my water intake. My shoulder is feeling much better now and i think the cortisone shot is doing its job. I hope next week will be better for me. This month will be very busy for me. Its my birthday month and we are planning a pretty big party. The party is 2 weeks from today. I have relatives coming in for it so we will have a full house for about 2 weeks. I will also be traveling to america after so will be absent quite a bit. I just hope i can manage to have small losses weekly or even to maintain for the month of March. Fingers crossed.

    This has been another good week, everyone - so far, with still a few weigh-ins to go, Team Waistaways has lost 29.1 pounds. Pick that up at the gym and you'll be really impressed! Do a few rows and deadlifts with it.

    Only 1 Saturday weigh-in still due ( @kittu125 ) and I'm still hoping for the other late people from earlier in the week:
    @LiLee2018
    @MoStacy
    @NikkiDT9211
    @Healthy67Chick

    Tomorrow is a new week, so let's get this one cleared up!

    Can we do a relay. We just did one I one of our Fitbit challenge. It’s simple stepping task or calorie burn tasks and whole team can do it.

    Like 6 tasks for stepping and each have its own bonus points.

    5 k -8k each day 10 points each day for each member that does it

    8k-15k - 20 points

    Something like that

    I've been away for the weekend and had no control over food. The food served was absolutely terrible: bread, friend chicken, lots of snacks, cakes and biscuits. I held on untill this afternoon but then seriously crashed. I was so hungry and there was all this junk, not a pretty sight....
    Now I feel terrible. I hope it hasn't ruined my week (it was going so well...)
