What's For Dinner? Lamb!

Today I did much better at breaking up my meals a bit, and not running into stomach cramping. I also improved the time I spent jogging vs walking during my treadmill workout - added another minute. Three minutes doesn't sound like a lot to some people, I'm sure, but it's still considerably more effort than walking, and I'm pushing myself hard to keep a steady increase in that time as I get back to exercise.

The incision isn't happy this afternoon after the work out, but I'm beyond caring at this point - surgery is Monday, and I'll lay off of it for a bit while that heals, but I really felt the reduced exercise was slowing my loss, and I seem to have been right - the scale was down 2 pounds this morning (yes, I owe you an 8 month update - I'll get the Man to take the photos tomorrow).

Dinner tonight was a repeat - the garlic rosemary-marinated lamb chops from about 2 weeks ago. I diced two red potatoes and made a quick "smash" out of them (leaving skins on) - primarily for the Man, and then steamed some green beans.

Will need an after dinner snack to get close to the protein goal, but I'm getting better at this.
