Brat Soup

Week 5 5/7th of six weeks

Weight today: same

Total lost: 6 pounds in 5 5/7th week

Today's challenge: hydration staying on calorie

Planned fitness: 4-5 mile run, my abdominal routine

Note on 7th day of no-sweet-n-low: Yesterday I didn't feel my stomach be so upset like it was the day before. I seems like it did get queasy, though, after my morning coffee. In fact, I was thinking about skipping my afternoon coffee, but didn't. My stomach felt fine doing a double weight lifting work-out, but I didn't run yesterday.

Note on picture: My husband is the bomb! Forget Blue Bunny Bomb Pops. I came home from the gym last night to the smell of cooking soup. He made this "Brat Soup" for a "Soup-A-Thon" for work today. This recipe actually came from a church cook book that was given to me from the people I worked with in honor of our wedding engagement. This brat recipe was actually created by an older gentleman. I know because I had a few questions about the recipe and called him up, and his wife handed the phone to him. Suffice it to say, that I think this proof that brats are a guy thing. And a Wisconsin thing. This is 1/2 cup with a little cheese sprinkled on top. I estimated about 85 calories.

Added note: I will post the recipe today some time.


  1. When I saw the title, I thought you had embraced cannabalism and had made a little kid soup for Halloween, but then I realized there was another meaning for the word "brat" and got all disappointed...

  2. Brat soup sounds really interesting! I love soups, but stick mainly to bean and chicken.

  3. I showed this to Greg. He instantly said how do you make it? You Wisconsin folk!
