This week’s lunch fare include my version of Joyce Goldstein’s Garofolato di Manzo alla Romana, beef stew scented with clove. She serves is with mashed potatoes, but I put it over a baked potato because that’s more Body for Life. So this week’s menu:
1/2 WW English muffin with 2 slices lean Canadian Bacon and a slice of low fat Havarti
1 oz beef jerkey
1 can Yoplait fat free
Beef stew on a baked potato with spaghetti squash -total calories on this 380
Apple and String cheese
WW tortilla with a chicken breast a little light cheese, fat free sour cream and fresh salsa
Ricotta and boysenberries.
I’ve kicked it up a notch in the gym and added 10 pounds to my max on the bench. I’m keeping it light on the deadlifts because my hip has been bothering me. Today I did sets at 195. My left shoulder has been a bit of a punk but I’ve been icing it, and we all know, ice is your friend.
This morning’s weigh in: 211 -a little disappointing.
And today my Clos Pegase shipment arrived. A bottle of the new Pegaso and a bottle of the new Cabernet Franc. My stomach is almost far enough over the flu to start thinking bad thoughts about the Pegaso.
