Yogurt came out great!

Taking advantage of the last week before work officially starts to do my workouts in the morning. My legs are feeling it! I won't be able to do the long alt cardio starting Monday so I may be forced to do some ridiculous air jumping as I still cannot do the jumprope with proper form. If only I had access to a place with a big mirror so I can see myself.

The yogurt I made came out great!! I got a tip about using powdered milk to help it set and it seems to have done the trick. 12 hours in the little machine and a good 6 hours in the fridge = same as store bought skim yogurt. Now I just have to get into the habit of making it every couple of days.

Had a bit of a diet fail as I misread the base protein points at lunch and was giving myself a little extra but that is fixed now. Not doing full veggie, it is just nice to have the option. The hunger pangs are gradually subsiding and I am happy to report nothing outside my grams have passed my lips. We have catered lunch on Monday and Tuesday and I will be bringing my lunch to avoid temptation.

Ah, you also have hunger pangs! Mine come and go, but mostly arrive if feeding time for me is not almost exactly at the right time.

So the yogurt looks definitely thinner than greek yogurt. How is the taste? Tangy? Tart? Probably not sweet. I had one of those when I was in college...I made it a couple of times, but never really got on to it. Time does change one’s taste acceptance though...I will have to give it a try.

Yes, the legs seem to be getting the focus, especially on the barre days. I still wonder what run-of-the-mill-non-Kenzai-barre-classes are like...

Keep up the good work!

    That’s a good tip on the yoghurt. I’ve made my own kefir before but didn’t love it- might try the yoghurt and see if it’s a bit more palatable.
    Great discipline with the diet, Kim- hope those hunger pangs settle down.

      The yogurt looks lovely. It will be fun to explore and develop variations as you go. My biggest challenge would be adding one more thing to the weekly needs (the reason my bread making comes in fits and starts). Good luck on Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully your lunch will be as tempting as what they cater.

        @Kathleen, I make sourdough as well. Finally got into some kind of routine on that, mostly because the most easily available bread here is the fluffy, white, pillow kind so it was out of desperation. The yogurt maker produces yogurt at 1/3 of the cost of the supermarket so that is pretty motivating, too.

          Sounding like you are in a good place Kim. Good luck with the transition back to school and work.

            Congratulations on the yogurt success! That has to be very satisfying as well as tasty. Impressive! Good luck this week.

              Yogurt looks good. Will have to hear more about it. Definitely frustrating to pay $60ish for a liter of yogurt when a liter of milk is $22ish. And the supply is inconsistent!

                Yum!!! And so cleverly diy of you, nothing better than growing or making your own soul food.

                  Wow you are very disciplined on the diet... "nothing outside my grams have passed my lips". I can't say the same |0| but will try this week!!!!

                    I too took my own lunch when catered for on the first couple days, great Kenzai minds think alike. I hope you're having a good week.
