It's not often I get to post about how AWESOME I'm doing so I'm soaking it up today girls and braggin myself up! This week has been so great! Unfortunately this week follows a weekend of splurges and massive over eating due to the Holiday so I'm really not expecting much on the scale this Friday but it doesn't really matter. Did you hear that ladies? It doesn't matter if I see a huge loss on the scale because I KNOW that I'm making the right decisions and I'm doing the right thing.
I lied a little. But just a little.
It matters. But not THAT much! I would like to see a loss. Even a really small one.
I feel great about the decisions I'm making this week.
1. I've gone to the gym twice so far this weekend and I'm going today after work.
2. I've been eating great meals and have been eating veggies and fruit like they are going out of style.
3. I'm eating more points for breakfast and lunch and having smaller suppers.
4. I'm bulking up my breakfast and having high fiber/high protein so I'm staying full WAY longer than I did with Special K.
5. I preplanned all my lunches and cooked them all on Monday so I'm not making rash unhealthy decisions.
Wanna know the best part? Hubby and I went out to dinner last night at Subway and I was tempted to order the Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap. I know it's 10.5 points but it's so yummy. I thought about and instead I ordered the turkey breast wrap with tons of veggies and sweet onion sauce and it was so good!!! I loved it! Only 6 points for the whole thing (with cheese!) The best part came after dinner when Scott started munching on those darn Ruffles Baked Sour Cream and Cheddar chips. They are my favorite but I made a quick decision before he even opened the bag that I wasn't going to have even one. He even offered me some but I said no thanks! SWEET! I think I found my zone ladies! I've also started planning out my entire weekend and flex points. We have a wedding to go to on Saturday and a date night on Friday night so the flex points will definitely come in handy.
Speaking of flex points... Do you ladies use all 35 points every weekend? I've been reading your blogs now for weeks and honestly, sometimes I feel like I am the only one using them! I know some of you save them up for one big splurge meal on the weekends but I'm just curious as to what you use them on? Lately my vice on the weekend has been chocolate. This week I'm planning on using my flex points on the following:
Friday night Date night includes:
Homemade pizza (Usually takes up about 10 bonus points) -10
1 Chocolate bar of choice for the movie - 6
1 bag of baked Doritos Nacho Flavor for the movie - 4
That's 20 bonus points in one night! But it's SOO worth it. I never use BP on Sunday so that still leaves me with 15 for Saturday night. We are going to a wedding so the standard dish is always chicken and veggies but I want to save some flex points for the dessert so I'll keep my 15 points for that I'm sure.
What are you guys using your flex points on?????
Today Recipe is from Cory... Maybe I'm the only one, but I've never ever tried green bean casserole! Don't forget to send in your recipes girlies! Also start e-mailing me your week #3 WI results for the Christmas Challenge!! Results will be posted on Monday, October 15 on my blog.
As for a recipe, I just love an ordinary green bean casserole.
1 can green beans
1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
Mix these together and put in a casserole dish.
Cover with crumbled bread or crackers.
Bake at 350 degrees until warm. Approximately 20 minutes?
You can make this with fat free soup and barely tell the difference!!!!
