I had an urge to eat some Ice Cream last night after  I blogged… but I stopped myself from doing so. And this morning, when I woke up I felt great. Infact, I got up early and went to the gym for a pilates workout. A workout that was very rigorous.. I moved and worked muscles that had been laying dormant.

Then I came home to Mike making a Vegetarian Lazagna. We bought some Whole Wheat Lazagna Pasta yesterday, so he had to use them along with some cut up Eggplants he froze a couple of weeks ago.

He entrusted me with the task of looking after the Lazagna and I managed to burn the bottom of it. Mike set up the Lazagna in the Coleman Grill outside, and when I went to check on it, I was not sure how he thought the top would get cooked. So when I went to check on the food again, the bottom was burnt and the top still needed to be done. So I took it off the grill and brought it inside so Mike could take care of it when he returned. 😦

Even though the Vegetable Lazagna was burnt on one side…and didn’t look much like a Lazagna… it still was good.

Maybe my ticket was called, when I indulged in some Sherbet Friday night at the movies.?? Or did it start earlier than that, when I was dipping into the Whipped Topping with my Fresh Fruit Desserts???

Anyway you cut it, I’m laid up with back pain making getting around slower than usual.:( And it also means, I’m not hitting the Pilates Gym (since Thursday) getting my usual cardio workout and physical exercise. So eating has somewhat fallen by the wayside.:(

Mike and I have been making some hearty soups to eat, to help beat the colder temperatures and I’ve been tossing my Green Salads. We’re using all the Vegetables and goodies we’re buying at the Costco and Giants Grocery Store, but it’s the extras that are getting me down.

Monday night, I indulged in a bowl of Strawberry Ice Cream.
Sunday afternoon, I indulged in a block of Hershey’s Chocolate with Nuts and a spoonful of Peanut Butter. This was a repeated snack from Saturday Night. I just had the urge for chocolate (and there’s a reason why!)
In addition to all these indulgences I’ve also been over doing it on the Whole Wheat Bread and taking extra servings of all these great soups.

Mike’s Minestrone (Vegetable) Soup:
He called it Minestrone Soup with out the noodles. I didn’t make either, so I’m just going to list the ingredients.
Yellow Onions
Tomato Paste
Diced Tomatoes

Mike’s Barley & Carrot Soup:
He actually told me he got the idea to make this soup after he read my Raw Recipe Cook Book. After reading the Lentils & Barley Soup Recipe and the Carrot Soup Recipe he made this version.
White Beans
