Fitness Challenge Day 33 – Sunday Weigh In: The 420s!

Last Sunday I did my “official” morning weigh in and came in at 434.6 pounds. I weighed in yesterday morning at 428.2, so I lost 6.4 pounds over the past week and am down 21.8 pounds since I began my journey on April 1.

Weight loss chart for the past 30 days – now at 428.2

Park and walk — furthest parking space from the church

The first Sunday of every month is Fast Sunday for church, so we fasted this morning as we went to church.  I have decided to always park far away and walk, about 100 yards.  I did so again yesterday.

I love the nice cool spring mornings.  It was still in the 50s so it made for a nice walk, even though it was only about 100 yards away.

Of course, after church meant walking back to the car.

The small victories!!



After church we went home and made a wonderful “Bountiful Baskets” lunch including grilled potatoes, baked carrots (the multicolored kind!), broccoli and corn on the cob with avocado instead of butter.  It was a great lunch…definitely PlantPure Nation style!!

While Julianne was preparing lunch, I was busy grilling poblano and anaheim peppers.  Julianne was busily making a wonderful green salsa and we were prepping to go to our daughters’ house to make tamales.  Bountiful Baskets had a tamale pack last week which included the premixed masa and also corn husks.  Chelsea has made tamales a number of times, so Julianne went over to learn the ropes

Green chile tamales made from Bountiful Baskets goodies

The tamales turned out great!  We made straight green chile tamales…no meat.  Once again, completely Bountiful Baskets fare.

Of course, good masa requires lard and we believe that there was lard in our masa, so not completely “plant-based,” but we did the best we could.

They came out amazing and it is exciting to a few leftovers, which we may have for dinner tonight.

There is nothing like these yummy tamales slathered in homemade green salsa.

Knees were still painful so I rested them again.  I will definitely be walking on Monday evening.
