I've been working out at Curves for a little over a month, and had my monthly weigh and measure today. It's my "time of the month" so I probably should have put it off until next (I usually gain a few pounds of water weight during my period), but I was already a week late getting it done, so I didn't want to put it off any longer. Only one pound lost, but I took off 4 inches!
Here are my Curves start stats (not too far off from the ones I did myself when I started the blog!)
Body fat- 40.90 (GAH!!!)
And today 04/27/11
Body Fat- 40.80

For dinner tonight we had pan seared salmon and asparagus with maple-mustard sauce. The mustard sauce is so easy to make. It's out of my Betty Crocker cook book, but TF friendly.
For 2lbs of asparagus (cooked however you like it- for 1lb, half the recipe, of course)
2 TBSP real maple syrup
2 TBSP dijon mustard
2 TBSP olive oil
Whisk together in a small bowl and drizzle over the cooked asparagus. Yummy!

|Indonesian Coconut Steak w/broccoli and kimchi|
One change from the book I have been able to do a pretty good job of sticking with is carb reduction. Used to be we ate a pretty typical meat/carb or starch/veggie at dinner, and I've found it very easy to do 2 veggies (usually one fermented) and a sald (plus a good sized portion of meat, of course) instead! As a total carb addict, that's a pretty big step for me! In the picture above I've got Indonesian Coconut Steak from the EFLF book (the book has you mix the coconut in, but then it gets like gray and icky looking- I find it more appealing garnished on top), some lightly cooked broccoli with a little pastured butter and salt, and some delicious fermented kimchi. I also had a big salad with the Asian style dressing out of EFLF. When I first started doing the curries and stir fries out of the book, I thought that I would really miss the rice that I would typically serve it on top of, but adding in the extra veggies and salads really fills us up!
