Breakfast: package of reduced sugar brown sugar oatmeal (2pts) and coffee (0 pts)
Keeping to schedule we started school at 9am and worked until 10:30. Then it was off to the YMCA for Charlie's PE class. Rachel prefers to work out with me than go to the teen class. So she hit the bike and the treadmill while I did weights.
The Y has a cool little gadget on all of the machines that tells you where your seat/leg position should be for each exercise and how much weight you set for each one. I haven't used this for quite a while (so long has it been that I had to ask them to reactivate my account). I just used the same weights I was using when I was working out before. Ummm, I'm not as strong as I was then. The worst were the arm exercises. My biceps and triceps are killing me. I worked out for 40 minutes (I'd say actual workout time was only 30 minutes since I had to set up machines and reactivate account, etc) so I earned 2 activity points.
Lunch: wrap with buffalo chicken, Dijonaise, spinach, and a little shredded mozzarella cheese (4 pts) and 2 clementines (1 pt)
After lunch it was time for more school and then to the grocery store. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I hate going to the grocery store!
Dinner: Tender Chicken in Gravy (5 pts) over brown rice (4 pts) and sugar snap peas with some spray butter (1 pt)
Just follow the link for the recipe then scroll down. This is a terrific family dinner and pretty quick to make. It sure doesn't taste low in points!
Dessert: Here it is. 1/4th of a crustless pumpkin pie for 1 pt
Did you watch the Biggest Loser Finale? OMG, the transformations were just amazing! I didn't even recognize one guy. I didn't follow this season like I usually do. I love the way my whole family, myself included, gets so motivated when watching the show. My daughter starts eating healthier food and exercising more. Chuck gets motivated to exercise. And I always have a renewed sense of determination.
With that determination, I'll hit my goal and drag my family along to a better lifestyle.
