Back on the Wagon

Today was day two back in the gym! Yesterday I walked 1.9 miles and ran 0.1 miles. Today I did weight training. I love weight training. I'm good at it. My lungs don't feel like they are about to collapse and my heart doesn't feel like it's beating out of my chest when I lift weights. Occasionally my limbs feel like they may fall off, but the feeling is short lived.

I'm eating fairly well... I've been trying to steer clear of HFCS and CS. I am sure they sneak in ways I don't think of, but I know I am eating drastically less of them. July is feeling like a really long month because I have not had any Mexican food. August 1st I think I may have to go to Los Compadres! I definitely have been eating a new age breakfast. I have 1/2 sprouted grain English  muffin with 1 ounce of raw cheese toasted. If you have never tried sprouted grain bread I highly recommend it.

In fact these English muffins are going to be the first of my Friday Favorites.
You'll find it in the freezer section. I like the Food for Life brand personally. These pictures are from the Food for Life website. There is no flour in these! It's all sprouted grains. You can microwave them but I found them a little chewy when warmed up that way. They are much better toasted. You can try it like I do, with some raw cheese, try peanut butter, or top it with an egg! (I'll talk about raw cheese next week.)

Today's question: Have you eaten sprouted grain breads before? Yes? What did you think? Any tasty suggestions?



  1. I am not sure if I have ever eaten sprouted grain breads! If I did, I did not realize it. I will have to be on the lookout for it though to try! Laurie

    1. Congratulations for getting back on track!! They say at Weight Watchers that it is not important if we slip up once in a while but it is important what we do after the slip-up!
      Your breakfast is my favorite, too. I use Against the Grain Gluten free rolls, that have nooks and crannies like E. muffins...a poached egg and WW cheese...a half tablespoon of butter. It holds me all morning and sometimes past lunch! Sprouted grain E. muffins aren't gluten free are they? Keep on keeping on! :-)
