Workout Tracking, Cook Your Lettuce

I’ve been on a long quest to lose weight the past few years. I’m glad to say that I’m back to the weight I was when Nathan and I fist started dating. I recently found a website called Traineo.com. You can log in your workouts, your diet, and weight and the site graphs it so you can see your progress. It also calculates your calories burned during your workout, and it tells you how far to your goal and how long you have to get there. You can also add “motivators”… these are people who can see your progress and leave you messages and comments to keep you motivated and hold you accountable. I don’t have any motivators yet… anyone want to volunteer? 🙂

I tried a new thing tonight… stir-fried iceberg lettuce. I made a stir-fry with summer squash, broccoli, onions, garlic, mushrooms, and iceberg lettuce. I added some Asian Vinagrette, salt and pepper to it while it was cooking. The lettuce acts just like other greens… doesn’t really add any flavor, just soaks up the flavor of the sauce. It turned out pretty good. Apparently, cooking lettuce is a popular thing to do in some Chinese dishes.
