My food goal today was to listen to my body, and not to eat unless I was hungry. It worked okay, but not great.

Exercise: 35 minutes on the elliptical this morning and the intermediate Pilates DVD tonight.

I must tire myself out by working out every day. Yesterday, I let Chocolate Cloud Bread stand in the way of my morning workout. Later, ironically, I watched The Biggest Loser instead of trying to fit something in for the evening. But my elliptical workout this morning, though brief, was fantastic. I was able to crank up the resistance more than ever before, and my usual resistance levels seemed too easy. I'm not sure what to do with this information. Studies show that people who lose a large amount of weight and keep it off usually exercise at least 60 minutes a day, so I don't want to intentionally cut back.


  1. I take it you like the cloud bread? Do you make it according to the recipe that's been floating around online, or have you made modifications? We are going camping in a few months, and I am thinking it might be a nice thing to have on hand for that. I wonder if it'd make a decent PB&J?

  2. Yes, I really like it. For PBJ, I would probably add a little more Splenda than the recipe calls for because the bread can be a little sour, and I'm not sure how that would taste with PBJ. I follow this recipe, using fat-free cream cheese and a little extra Splenda:

    PBJ would be EXCELLENT on chocolate cloud bread! I follow the recipe above, except I add 2 tbsp. cocoa powder and 1 cup of Splenda. I also cook it to be less brown than the regular Cloud Bread - it's important not to over-bake it because it will dry out and get tough. Chocolate cloud bread also has a slightly sour flavor that would play very well with the PBJ.
