Low carb steak fried “rice”

As always, I’m trying to figure out what the best diet is for me to help me lose weight.  I’ve always had a pretty good work out ethic, until recent years, so my new obsession with Orange Theory Fitness is really going well.  I have gone 3 – 6 times a week since I started in late October.  I have to do better with food though!! I think a low carb diet is probably going to work the best for me. I’ve been interested in the Keto diet, but I haven’t been able to get low enough in carbs each day.  I’ve kind of decided that my diet will be lower in carbs with the majority of the carbs happening with my breakfast shake, (which has a banana in it).

One of my go-to staples in this diet is the cauliflower fried “rice” plate.  It’s super easy to make, especially if you buy the cauliflower fried rice package in the vegetable section.  Here is my recipe:

2 bags of cauliflower fried rice packages
5 scrambled eggs
1 carton of sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 pound of stew meat or cubed steak (or chicken)
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
soy sauce to taste

1st step:  Scramble an egg then put it to the side.

Step 2: In another pan or wok, put sesame oil then add two packages of Cauliflower Crumbles “Fried Rice” Blend.  (If you want to add mushrooms, I’d put the mushrooms in before you put the cauliflower crumbles.) img_4043

3rd step:  Stir in soy sauce to taste and cook until semi-translucent.  

4th step:  Stir in the scrambled eggs and the stew or steak meat.  Add more soy sauce if you like it.  

This is seriously the best low carb meal I make.  I highly recommend it to everyone doing any kind of diet.  You can substitute chicken instead of meat if you like.  Or you can add no meat at all and use as a side dish.  There are a lot of options with this deliciousness!! This makes anywhere from 6 – 8 servings.

I work out!!!!

I’ve been trying to mix up my workouts each week so I don’t get stagnant with exercise, but my motivation has not been very good lately. The proof of my laziness is the lbs. on the scale and the way my clothes are fitting me. I know exercise isn’t the way that you lose weight, but it has what keeps me successful keeping off the weight. I ordered a new series of kettle bell workouts from Amazon this week and it showed up today!!! Kettleworx was a good way to get started with kettle bells, but after six weeks, I am tired of all the bad editing and repetitive work outs. I can’t wait to get started on Kettlebody by Brook, but I think I will be one of those people that starts things on Monday because I’m off to the Katy Trail to get my six miles in today!! Happy exercising!!

Kettleworx

My friend over at Definitely Leopard has really gotten in to the Kettleworx work out plan. You use kettle bells to do different work outs. I did some research on the internet and found that most people that have done this plan really seem to like it. You only do 20 minutes of exercises and it is supposed to pay off like crazy. So today I went up to Target and bought my own program. I only bought the 5 lb. kettle bell package because I don’t want to start doing it and think it is too hard and quit. (It also came in a 10 lb. kettle bell package.) A bonus to buying the smaller weight is that the 10 lb. one was $61.99 and the 5 lb. one was $49.99. The whole program is much more expensive if you buy it online, so I recommend Target. If I keep it up, I totally realize I’m going to have to buy a 7 lb. kettle bell and then work my way up, but the bells really aren’t as expensive without all the videos. I’m really looking forward to trying to do the cardio weights video. I hear it is the hardest and most fun!!

I plan to do Kettleworx on my walk days since I’m already pretty far along with the Couch 2 5K plan that I’ve been doing. BTW, I’m almost done with Couch 2 5k and I can run 30 minutes straight right now.  By the end of the week, I’ll be at 3 miles and maybe a full 5k.
