Blendergrl's Weight Loss Tracker

Monday, March 23, 2009


So I had a really great week of vacation. In total I earned 42 activity points. I did lots of classes at the gym, plus cario and weight training. I did some yoga, swimming and a 5 hour mountain hike on Friday with my DH and SIL. My eating was totally OP. I made healthy meals and did not eat out at all. So are you ready for the great WI results??? I GAINED 5 POUNDS!!! WTF!!!

I must be retaining some serious water, because there is no way I could have realy gained five pounds. So weird. Anyway, I know the hard work will catch up in the next week or so and I am going to stay on track. My body does this sometimes, and then one morning I will wake up 7 pounds lighter than when I went to sleep. Sigh, at this rate I will never get to onederland! I think after my WI on Wednesday I will do the Wendie Plan for a week. I think the triple activity this past week may have freaked my body out - I need to shake up my eating plan.

Ok, I have one recipe to share and this is one that I made up so we will call it Zucchini ala Blendergirl. It was so delicious that I made it two nights in a row, and my weekend dinner guests loved it.

Take 2 zucchinis and slice down the middle. I scooped out the insides with a melon baller. Put the hollowed out zucs in a pan and roast in a 350 oven for about 10 minutes (while you prepare the filling).


1/2 cup finely diced red onion

1 cup finely diced crimini mushrooms

zucchini flesh finely chopped

1 clove minced garlic

sautee all of this in a pan with a little olive oil until cooked and most of the liquid is gone. Remove from heat and mix in 1/2 cup grated light cheese, one beaten egg, salt and pepper. Fill the zucchinis with the mixture (will be very gooey - but firms up when cooked).


1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup grated parmesan (powder)

1-2 tbsp melted butter

Mix together and spread evenly on stuffed zucchini. I covered in foil and continued cooking for 15 minutes. Remove foil and cook 5 min (until topping is brown). Enjoy!!!

WTF?? That sucks. Your body will catch up with your hard work. Give it time!

I love the recipe. I have zuchini right now waiting to be cooked I was looking all over for some tried and true zuch recipe. Thanks!

Do you eat your AP's? I was told by 2 different leaders if your hungry eat some but most people at the meetings ( who are now lifetimers) said as they were in weight loss mode they did not eat AP's but now use some in their maintenance mode. Just curious. I eat all of my daily adn weeklies but no AP's although Im not a super big cardio person to earn a whopping 40 something like you! lol
Maybe ask your leader about this? Seems like you would have seen a loss after all of that exercise.
Keep up the good work!!! :)

I leaned forward to get a better look at my screen, looking for the period in front of the 5, you know, thinking that must be 1/2 a pound, not 5 lbs!

Yeah, a crazy gain like that has got to be fluid retention. It will come right off.
