How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one! I know they are never long enough.
Mine was spent vehicle shopping. We have a budget, and so we are going to stick with that and be picky about what we buy. We were looking at the Jeep Liberty model and were finally able to test drive one. LOVED it. Just perfect. It’s amazing how long it takes to shop for a car. The car salesmen make it a long, drawn out process. But, that’s ok. We will continue to look for what we want. I just wish the car salesmen would be more straightforward and say, look—this is what I’ll sell it to you for and nothing less. But you never know where they stand. I’m a first time car shopper—hubby has done it a couple of times. Any tips?
For breakfast, I ate scrambled eggs with turkey sausage, PB/Banana toast, and a glass of milk for 8 points.
Once again, hubby lost this week’s weight loss contest. He lost 4.1 lbs.!! I’m very proud of him! Guess I better start planning his special meal.. I know that he is probably going to beat me in every contest, but I keep thinking that one of these weeks I WILL beat him. Any ideas for our challenge this week?
After hubby left for work, I jumped on the stationary bike for 7 miles in 30 minutes. I had the idea to download the Netflix app on my iPad and try watching something as I worked out. It really made the time go fast!!
And I watched Heavy, which I’ve had in the queue for a while. It’s motivating to see that. I wasn’t sure if watching something would be too distracting when I should be thinking about working out, but I burned 191 calories—so I think I did alright, and will probably do it again. Do you watch something while working out? Do you work out harder when you do/don’t?
And then it was time for work. I sipped on coffee with FF creamer for 1 point.
On my first break, I was hungry and knew I had a later lunch, so I ate popcorn for 4 points to fill me up.
For lunch, I ate leftover lasagna and green beans for 7 points.
Yummy! I also had a No Pudge! brownie for 3 points.
We had guests for supper tonight. I fixed creamy chicken enchiladas (using all low calorie ingredients):
Lettuce salad with tomatoes and avocado, that I topped with salsa and a little Greek yogurt.
HG corn muffins.
And tortilla chips with guacamole.
And for dessert, I made, basically, a sugar free dessert. Here is a quick picture of the leftovers. A pretty nasty looking picture…lol. But I wasn’t able to take pictures when I served it up all pretty. Maybe next time. But that’s a crust, a ricotta cheese mixture, bananas, and chocolate pudding. The final topping is Cool Whip. It was average.
It was a good supper, and I just listened to my body and stopped when I was satisfied. Not 100% sure what the points would be for everything, but that’s ok for tonight.
