We are finally back on track! We've gotten back into the exercise and healthy eating groove...sort of. The exercise thing is great -- we're back to getting our aerobic exercise at least 5 days per week (more when we have the time). We try to get in 45 minutes of aerobic exercise but on those busy days we make sure we get in at least 30 minutes. The 30 minutes of walking doesn't seem to help our weight loss which is why we go with 30-45 minutes of aerobic-- probably because we aren't as strict as we should be with our eating.
That's what the "sort of" comment is all about. There are times, like last night where we just don't have the time and energy to make dinner so we picked up some Pho (pronounced "fuh") from the Vietnamese restaurant down the street. The male half of the this couple had his broth with the noodles, chicken and veggies -- I had just the broth and veggies. Pretty close to Dukan but Pho is usually made with bone marrow. That's what dinner's in our household on busy nights.
This weekend we are planning to cook some different Dukan meals though. One will be a pasta using Nasoya Zero Pasta which is on sale right now at Safeway and the other will probably be another grilled salmon dish.
Flamidwyfe's mentioned the Paleo diet and we finally had some time to read up on it. Consolidation has been a success for her following both the Dukan and Paleo diets. This lead to some googling of our own and wow, a lot of the Paleo recipes out there are pretty close to Dukan recipes. We're hoping to Dukan and Paleo some of our future recipes!
We're familiar with Flamidwyfe's story as we've been following her blog for a while now, but reading it again is always an inspiration.
