I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of my dinner last night for Sarah's Challenge. It was amazing, low in points and I swear when I was done, I felt like I had just eaten greasy pub food without the heavy bloaty feeling that comes afterwards. I should have taken the picture but by the time I was all finished cooking, I was famished and the thought of spending an extra 10 seconds to go get the camera seemed absurd to me at the time.
I took a few recipes from Hungry Girl and one from Roni's site and we had a "Pub Grub" night last night. If you haven't found either of these sites yet, oh baby, you're about to hit a goldmine of amazing recipes and tips for WWers. First on the menu was Chicken Strips found on the Hungry Girl Website and let me tell you, if you haven't tried these...do it NOW! They are amazing. Honestly it is hard to tell that they aren't deep fried and with a little low fat BBQ sauce, honestly it feels like you are cheating! They are great with a honey mustard sauce too or even some low fat ranch dressing. To die for!!
Next we had battered Onion Rings. These rival the chicken strips and seriously there is no way to tell that these little numbers are WAY less fat and calories than their deep fried counterparts. It's amazing. These may have been my favorite but everything was so good, it's hard to tell.
Last but certainly not least we tried Roni's Zucchini Pizza bites. Mmmm Scott absolutely fell in love with these. They were pretty good actually and the topping was yummy. We used low fat cheddar instead of mozzarella but we got more cheese for less points and I don't think we sacrificed any of the taste. If your in the mood for some pub food, check these ones out. They are fantastic!
On other news, I tried out my mini trampoline yesterday. I wanted to start off slow so I was only on it for about 30 mins while I was watching TV but it was nice to get in some cardio and I can see how it could be a great workout. I'll let you know how it goes from here. It feels great on the legs and butt and you can really feel them working hard.
Scott and I have been thinking about joining the YMCA for the winter months. They have some great aerobics classes and I would love to have the option of using the machines right after work. I wish my work had a gym. We are going to go for a trial week next week and see how we like it. Anyone have any tips??
That's it for me today :)
