I lost all the weight I gained last week, plus two additional ounces! The only thing different I have done this week is to eat cottage cheese for breakfast. I employ a fairly untraditional combination on advice from someone who, like me, doesn’t like sweet breakfasts OR cottage cheese. Are you ready? Cottage cheese with yellow mustard and fresh ground pepper.
Doesn’t that sound kind of gross?
Here’s the thing: I don’t like cottage cheese, I’m not a fan of mustard, and I HATE pepper. But, somehow, it all works out and I like it enough to have it almost daily for breakfast. I’ve tried it without pepper (because I really do not like pepper) and oddly enough, it doesn’t taste good without it!
I know most people mix fruit in their cottage cheese, but I have terrible reflux/heartburn, and I really can’t eat most fruits or bread products without paying dearly for the indiscretion. This, I know, will be a thing of the past once I lose weight. In the very near future I will be able to eat and drink all the fruit my vegetable eating self desires. Until then, bring on the mustard and pepper.
My intention for next week is to incorporate more exercise into my routine. I won’t do anything fancy–I’ll just stroll around my perfectly flat neighborhood and listen to my iPod. How is everyone else’s diet going?
