Remember how badly I ate yesterday? Way too many sweets and not enough fruits and veggies. I stayed on plan but it just wasn't healthy. So this morning I made sure that I had ALL of my fruits and veggies servings by 9am. Yep. :P
and post-blend....... Don't let that green color fool you. Years ago I used to make these every morning when I was doing the "raw food diet" and I gave my kids a blind taste test and they had no clue that it had veggies in it. Trust me.
1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
1 c. ice
2 c. fresh spinach leaves
1 T. flax seeds
1 orange, peeled
1 banana, peeled
1 kiwi (the fruit, not the bird), peeled
some sweetener (I use Stevia)
Blend and enjoy your 5 servings of fruits & veggies.
Mid morning snack: piece of lavender chocolate (1 pt)
For lunch I wanted to make something a little different. I had 1 Morningstar Italian Sausage left and there was some canned, refrigerated pizza dough in the fridge. Why not try to make calzone?!
Lunch: Pepperoni sausage calzone with pizza sauce and salad (5 pts) This pizza dough is 3 pts per 1/6th so I just cut it in six pieces, added some chopped turkey pepperoni, a chopped sausage link and 2/3 cup of WW mozzarella (total for all 6 pieces of dough). I also sprinkled some Italian seasoning in there. Fold over and seal edges then bake according to the pizza crust directions. Serve it with warm pizza sauce. Ohhhhhhhh......it was so good. Seriously mouth watering good. Everyone thought it was definitely 5 stars.
Got a little studying done. Guys, I am going to bomb this final. It's going to be bad.
Time for my run for the Walk-It Challenge. This time I make Rachel go with me because she has a 5k coming up on May 9th. She had a tough time with the run so I'm going to take her along with me from now on. She needs this as much as I do.
Walk 5 minutes; run 1 minute/walk 2 minutes; repeat 7 times; walk 5 minutes. We did a little bit longer because I mis-timed a run and went two minutes a couple of times. Total time: 34 minutes.
Got cleaned up and headed to Kroger for some Rock Star to help me with late night studying and some waffles for Charlie. Why am I having such a tough time finding the Sugar Free Rock Star? It's sold out everywhere I go. Kroger only had 1 4-pack so I bought it and all of the individual cans that they had.
Guess what I found while shopping. 100 calorie packs of Twix, M&Ms, Reese's sticks and 3 Musketeers! All of them are 2 points except the Reese's which is 3 pts.
These are so good that I am including a box of the 3 Musketeers in the "Sweet Success" giveaway.
Dinner: Creamy Baked Chicken, roll, broccoli with cheese sauce (7 pts) That chicken made the house smell heavenly. Very good.Creamy Baked Chicken (4 pts)
4 6-oz chicken breasts
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken
1/4 cup water
2 cups Stove Top stuffing mix
1 c. fat free chicken broth
4 oz. low fat (or fat free) swiss cheese
Cut chicken breasts in half so you have 8. Place in 9x13 pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix soup and water. Put Swiss cheese on chicken breasts. Pour soup over chicken. Sprinkle crushed stuffing mix over chicken. Drizzle chicken broth over. Bake for about 45 minutes or until done. Check it at 40 minutes because every one's oven is different.
4 pts per breast.
I did something kind of weird today. I saw that quite a few other people are doing it so I did too but it's not something that I would normally do and not sure how I feel about it. Maybe I'm over analyzing it. I nominated my blog for a blog award. You are welcome to vote for it but don't feel obligated. I just feel kind of bizarre putting myself out there like that. So I might eventually take it off. We'll see. The link is at the top of the blog. Hey, why not nominate YOUR blog?!
I did much better today with the eats and even got my run in even though it was over 80 degrees and extremely humid.
Tomorrow I'll be pretty much MIA as I get ready for the final from hell on Thursday. I'll be so glad when this is over.
Hope your day was terrific. Mine was ended on a bad note when RON on Biggest Loser made it to the final 4. That guy even lied to his trained and Bob knew it. Shows Ron's total lack of character. But I am very proud of Tara. I hope that girl wins. She is amazing.
I would like to give a big CONGRATULATIONS to my friend at The Thin Girl Within Me. She just foud out that she is preggers! Yeah! I look forward to following her journey to motherhood. :)
Good night all. :)
