I have a couple life updates to throw out there. First of all, this morning I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight! I gained 31 pounds while I was pregnant, lost all but 7 within the first week or two, and then the weight loss pretty much completely stalled.
A few weeks ago I decided to count calories for a few days just to monitor what I was eating (since being at home makes it way to easy to just graze on crap all day), and since then I’ve just been mindful about only eating when I’m actually hungry. I’m guessing all the running and Bikram I’ve been doing probably helped a little bit, too.
Second, I’m back at work and it’s AWESOME. The kids this year are so amazing. I had them write paragraphs explaining the difference between mass and weight, and was completely impressed with how well they write. Also, about a dozen students from last year (who are now in high school) stopped by one afternoon to visit and it totally made my day. I love this job!
Meals like this are perfect for those busy days (like yesterday, which involved work, a dentist appointment, and a trip to Costco to get stuff for our work party this weekend) that require something super fast and healthy. I served the noodles with a quick slaw made with red cabbage, mint, rice vinegar, and sesame oil.
