Day 15 and Weigh in Day

Here it is Friday, weigh in day. I am finally back on track I think, Easter threw me for a loop, but now the easter candy is gone and my healthy eating habits are slowly kicking back in.

WEIGH IN: Last week 306 This week.......304.5 that means I lost 1.5 lbs this week. YES!!! I hope all of your weigh ins go as well, and just remember, don't get to discouraged. What we are doing is very hard and there will always be set backs, but as long as we get back on track everytime we will all be OK.


Breakfast: Oatmeal, and coffee ;) Of course

Lunch: 6 inch sub from subway,(veggie sub) with baked lays chips,and a drink for only $5

Dinner: Tuna Casserole and salad

Yesterday was a very busy day for me, so I didn't eat as much plus the lunch and dinner filled me up

I don't know about you but I love banana bread, it makes a great dessert, snack or breakfast( this may not be the most frugal recipe, but sometimes you have to splurge a little)

Makes about 16 slices

What you need:
2 eggs
¾ cup sugar
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon table salt

Preheat the oven to 325F.

Mix the eggs and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer for 5 minutes, then mix in the bananas, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.

(Caution: Incoming unorthodox shortcut.) Dump the dry ingredients onto the batter without mixing in. With a spoon, lightly combine them right on top but still without incorporating into the wet batter. Now use the mixer to combine the dry ingredients and wet batter but just until barely combined. (Too much mixing will create small holes in the bread when it bakes.)

Turn the batter into a well-greased bread pan and bake for 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then turn onto a rack to finish cooling. Slice and serve!

  1. Congrats on the weigh loss. I weighed in this morning and lost 6 lbs. That is for 2 weeks since I didn't go last week. I wasn't going to stay for the meeting because I am still feeling under the weather but the ladies convinced me since I was getting my 10% key chain. I am so happy I stayed.
    I love banana bread and I think I will make this for the family.
