Yeah, I know, we eat a lot of chicken, especially when we are trying to cut back a little.

We have been eating oats with bits of almonds in the mornings, sweetened with NutraSweet®, along with a cup of coffee.

We also have been trying to ride our Lifecycle® Exercise Bike at least 20 minutes per day. Let me tell you, when you are 61 years old and out of shape, it takes a while to build up to that. I can’t imagine sitting there for an hour straight, but I would love to get to that point. For now, about 10 minutes at a time is all I can hold out, and it not just that my knees give out, it’s the pressure the stupid seat puts on my prostate area! Laugh, but it you’ve tried it; you know exactly what I’m talking about!

At lunch we are trying to hold ourselves to an apple, or maybe half and apple and half a banana, with some walnuts or pecans.

For supper (that’s southern for dinner) we eat small portions of whatever we want. Tonight it was some spicy chicken tossed with some vegetables.

I always begin by frying 6 to 8 pieces of Tyson® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Tenderloins in EVOO sprinkled with garlic bits and hot sauce. Once they have cooked…they get a toasty light brown when done…I take them out and cut them into little chunks and put them aside.

Into the same EVOO with the browned garlic bits I dump either fresh or frozen vegetables like different colors of bell pepper, cauliflower, onion, and broccoli. Tonight I dumped a small can of diced pineapple and water chestnuts into the mix and it was wonderful. Judy and I devoured about half the skillet’s contents and put the rest up for lunch tomorrow.

It’s good folks and not that many calories or carbohydrates.

Of course, the food looks wonderful, and I commend your efforts at shapin' up and gettin' healthy.

You ever try a recumbent bike. They have nicer seats and are much more comfortable to be in for long periods. They have 'em at the sporting goods place in Temple for a few hundred bucks.

Nope...and I doubt I ever invest in any type. I should have started long ago.
