10/29 Check In

Not sure where it went, but I lost 2 pounds. I'm at 118. I did eat some of my weekly flex points the past two weeks, where before on maintenance I stuck to my daily 22 and rarely even ate my APs. (I know that's greek for some of you.) So basically I think my body needs more fuel. Maybe?

So things to work on this week-

continue exercising
play with points, maybe eat more food
need new recipes

10/22 Check In, Wow

OK, I know it can take up to 10 days for your body to show a binge.... so maybe next week's weigh in won't be a maintain. But. Today was!!! Woot! Still 120!

I did get up today and got back on my exercise schedule (I hope). Jillian made me cry for my Mommy. *giggle* Yesterday either my alarm never went off or I just plain shut it off and never woke up. So tomorrow it's back to running. I'm going to redo week 8 since I only did 2 days of it last week before my mini-vacation.

10/15 Quick Check-in

Has to be quick, I'm late for a meeting. Still 120 maintaining well. This weekend should be fun! No counting for me, but I do plan on not over indulging too much. I know my stomache would revolt if I did. I'd rather not spend my vacation with friends in the bathroom.

Sunday Football Food 10/12


Made the same Zero point soup, it's currently cooling in it's pot on the stovetop.

In dip crockpot, I have a dip warming... not sure if it's going to be good though. I'm not sure how I did it, but I screwed up. For some reason I swore the dip was a roasted red pepper dip.... turns out it was supposed to be sun dried tomato. Ooops.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

8oz reduced fat cream cheese
1 jar of roasted red peppers- chopped

Place cream cheese in little dipper and top with the chopped peppers, stir after awhile to mix.

*shrug* We'll see if it's tasty. Update! During the 4th quarter of the latest Lions loss, we tried the dip. It's very yummy! P didn't like the pretzel chips I had to go with it, so he ate his on crackers but he really liked it.

For dinner we're having shrimp alfredo, I'm finally going to try the laughing cow alfredo sauce.

Laughing Cow Alfredo

3 wedges garlic and herb laughing cow cheese
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 TBS reduced fat parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder

That is for a single serving, so I'll be timesing it by 3 to make a 3 servings sauce and adding shrimp to it.

10/8 Check-in

Still 120! Wooohoooo, Doing very well at maintaining.

Also doing well with exercising, I'm starting to feel the difference. *makes muscle*

I made chili and soup last weekend. The soup is soooooo good. I love it.

I'm stuck in a rut with the Bento thing, I just always have a sammich and a little thing of carrots and a little thing of grapes. *yawn* Boring! Maybe Bentos are better for summer lunches?
