Monday Monday

Well I did ok this weekend. Yesterday was a pretty lazy day. We did go out to look at a few houses and went shopping for a bit but the rest of the day was dedicated to scrap booking and "The Hills" on TV. (I'm addicted to both) I stayed within my points but did eat a little too late last night and was craving junk all day. I had planned on getting some exercise in but just wasn't up to it. Tonight I am going right after work to get in a lower body weight training session.
It is raining SOOO hard out today that in my office at work, that's all you can hear. I was ready to back out of my lunchtime walk but Sarah came through for me and we drove up the the pedway and power walked through the mall for about 35 mins. I am hoping to get in at least 4 lunchtime walks this week.
Ok so last night Scott and I decided to have a little appetizer platter for supper...WW style. It was soooooo GREAT!!!!! We cut up chicken breast into strips and dipped them in egg and rolled them around in ground up Fiber One (with a little garlic powder, salt and pepper added in) then we threw them on the George Foreman. We also did the same with onions and made onions rings but we baked these in the oven. It was sooo good!!!! Try it if you haven't already. It's like eating pub food without all the grease and weight gain! I was thinking it would be great if you added some spices like oregano etc to give them a little kick, or even some chili powder. I can't wait to have these again!
I also tried the Quaker Chocolate Crunch Rice Cakes and they are great!! I really liked them. I'd even say they rival the caramel chocolate chip rice cakes (My Favorite!!). Give them a try if you can. I only found them in the States though.
Thwe last few days I am having a hard time. I just don't have the motivation. I am dragging big time and need a kick in the butt. I just feel so blah and fat. I hate days like this. Tomorrow is going to be different though. (hopefully!)

  1. I am sorry you feel "not on track"! That is a bummer! Perhaps you need to take a break?!? NO... not go off program and no exercising! but just lighten up a bit? (I know, that is scary.. You feel if you lighten up even a teeny have blown it!!!) Your great buddy, Sarah, is leaving this week? Perhaps that is why you are having a hard time? and your frustration in not finding "yours & Scotts" THE PERFECT HOUSE!! Please do not be so hard on yourself, sweetheart....You are doing great! Sometimes life interfers with all great plans! Sit back and enjoy it!

  2. And you are not FAT!! Get that out of your head right now! YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!

  3. When you've been following this plan for awhile it's normal to get a case of the blahs. I've been going through that myself, the trick is to shake things up- try new food or new exercise. Find something to get you excited again.

    I love The Hills, I got hooked on this stuff after catching a marathon of Laguna Beach. It's fluff but entertaining.

  4. KICK!!! That was me putting your butt back into gear, I hate those weeks too! I blame it on the weather, but today is another day right and we are all here for ya :)
    I have never watched the hills, is it any good, what's it about? I am a tv junkie and I love to scrapbook but haven't in so long, I have to get back into it :) have a great day
