Hike to Poo Poo

We hiked to Poo Poo point from the high school. This was a tough hike. I was huffing, puffing and sweating the whole way up -- total time was about 2.5 hours. But look at the results! I lost the 3 pounds I had gained over the last couple weeks, so now I'm back at my lowest in 3 months. And my blood sugar was 84 today! Whoo hoo.

In 3 months, I've lost a total of 2 inches off my waist and hips.

This time of year, you can't help but think of pumpkin pie. I made this custard as practice yesterday. It tastes so good and sweet! I will take this to my brother's house for Thanksgiving since there will be some borderline diabetics as well as sugar-sensitive kids there.

1 29-ounce can pumpkin puree
sweetner to taste - I used 20 packets or so of Splenda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt
4 eggs
1 - 13oz can Coconut milk

Mix and pour into 6 large muffin tins greased with butter. Preheat oven to 425 then turn to 350 and bake for 45 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean. I froze the individual portions.

That custard sounds wonderful -- do you have the carb count/calories on it? If not, I'll figure them out for myself.

I envy your hikes in pretty country. I need to start a walking program, as i will be going to London and Holland in May and doing lots of walking.

I finally got off my plateau again today and I am determined to stay off of it and lose 20 more pounds by Christmas!

Best wishes!carbattack

Thanks for the recipe - sounds wonderful. I have a recipe for Impossible pumpkin pie, and I use Carb Quik for the base. I'll try to make that this year for our family. Keep up the wonderful hikes!!! Wish I could join you. I have a big Rabbit show in Cleveland this
