Soup Day – Tuesday

There’s a shot of the soup I was working on for most of the morning. There’s an other picture over at 5ColourParachute where I try to explain how this particular pot full was concocted.   One of my challenges with calorie counting is that I so seldom make the same thing the same way twice.  I just know what’s in it – in this case quinoa, adzuki beans and lots and lots of vegetables.

On the plus side of my day:  A great breakfast, including a nicely poached egg before the gym, a good workout because I had time for it, freshly baked muffins, and lots of vegetables in my soup and salad.

On the minus side: The last of the holiday snacking, putting away the Christmas ornaments, and Canada losing to the Russians tonight.

What do you do when the score is 6-1 against you?  Do you throw in the towel? Grasp at any crazy straw that presents itself?  Or do you just keep doing what you know you should do?

I hope that tomorrow there won’t be anything on the minus side!

Have a good day.



About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
