Happy Biggest Loser Day all! I am SO SO GLAD it is back on!!! Now I can finally have closure since they left it as to be continued….I NEED closure. My post has to be FAST since I wanna enjoy the show 😀
Since I was starving ALL day yesterday, I figured I better start some day off with protein. I don’t know why but my body is more satisfied with protein than it is with just a carb breakfast. If I pair the two, then, it’s the perfect satisfying combo that last for hours.
I learned something new when I whipped up my egg scramble this morning ~ Did you know that it’s only ONE point for a 1/2 cup of Egg Beaters ( I am so not capping it at 1/4 or 1/3 when I can get more for the same!
1 zucchini, quartered
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
1/2 c egg beaters
Handful of cherry tomatoes halved
Sprinkle of green onions
Sea Salt, Pepper, Hot sauce
I added a pair on the side for some healthy carbs and a TWO POINT BREAKFAST!
Mid morning I snacked on 4 Kashi Bruschetta crackers with a Low Fat Sargento Colby Cheese for 3 points.
I was STILL hungry *sigh*, maybe I should’ve brought some veggies to go with my cheese & crackers next time. Since I didn’t have any veggies, I had some Pop Chips for 2 pts.
I was STUCK in the office ALL day since it was pouring out…just when I gave up hope, the rain stopped, but, I had already had lunch ~ bummer.
Lunch was a repeat of yesterday ~ spiced up. I started off with some Low-Fat Peanut Broccoli Slaw (TJ’s Organic Broccoli Slaw plus TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Dressing), topped wtih Sriracha for extra kick (1 pt).
Plus a 7 point serving of Spicy Chicken Fried Rice with Peanuts. I think this is even better the next day.
My FAVORITE 0 point Sobe Life Water ~ Acai Tropical Fruit ~ it’s just like the blue box Hawaiian Tropical Punch.
I may or may not have caved this afternoon to a little chocolate and a few mini cookies that somehow went unpictured. (3 pts)
I was antsy all day long to get out and run so when I got home I hopped on the Treadmill for a quick 30 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) run. I did level 5 of the weight loss program which has you run/sprint up hills ~ every 30 seconds the grade and speed increase as you run through rolling hills. It was intense and I totally felt FAST!
With my run, I added 25 push ups and 2 minutes of crunches before stretching.
Dinner was LEFTOVER SLOW COOKER TURKEY & BEAN BURRITO BAKE!
It totally is even better the next day as all the flavors blend together and it turns into a dense enchilada casserole….8 points!
