I woke up this morning sore from yesterday's LBWO. But, I was determined, so I went ahead and did 20 minutes HIIT on the elliptical with 10 minutes moderate pace going backwards. I also did the ab bootcamp after that. Nevertheless, I am even more sore now. Hopefully, it'll be better tomorrow.

The bread machine experiment turned out great...big difference between my homemade whole wheat bread compared to the loafs bought in the supermarket. For one thing, the homemade bread is noticeably fresher, as well as overall better for you since it doesn't have additional preservatives. And it smells so good! One thing though is that I programmed it for medium crust, as the recipe suggested, but the outside turned out crustier that I would like. My co-worker who owns a bread machine says that this is usually the case with whole wheat breads since it is typically dense. So, she suggested programing it for light crust next time.

Oh yeah, I cut off the ends of the bread and I am currently making bread crumbs out of it since I can't find whole wheat bread crumbs anywhere. I just shredded them in small pieces and put them in the oven to dry. I'll put them in a ziploc bag, crush them, and store them in the freezer. We'll see how it goes.

I had the EFL beef stir fry that I made last night for lunch today. The only thing is some pieces of the brocolli slaw turned out kind of woody. I don't know if it's because I overcooked it or if I just got a bad batch.

I'm making the EFL tuna casserole right now for dinner. I've made this dish many times already and I love it. It actually tastes better the next day.
