Did my weigh-in at work.  I lost 2 pounds this past week.  I’m happy.  That’s not a bad achievement considering we have dessert virtually every night.  But it also shows that if one takes the time to cook real food and not fill up on processed crap all day, you can have your cake and eat it, too.  It’s all about balance – and real calories that will do me some good versus crap calories that are nothing more than crap calories.

We’re fully into salad mode, now.  It’s cold and raining, but I grilled a couple of thin-sliced round steaks to add to salads, and I made a loaf of bread to go along with it.  Cheesy bread.

I cubed up some sharp provolone and mixed it in before forming the dough into a ball.

And if a couple of slices of provolone bread with roasted garlic butter wasn’t celebration enough for losing a couple more pounds, I’m making a yellow cake for dessert!  Real cake – not a mix.  It’s in the oven right now.

I’m thinking chocolate icing…..
