Happy Biggest Loser day all!!! Today was such an insanely busy day, but, all was made right when I saw Curtis Stone on Biggest Loser tonight I LOVED the Pop Cooking Challenge and of course, The Girls comments about his HOTNESS! He is soooo my celebrity crush ~ seriously!
Speaking of Biggest Loser ~ I had 2 insanely good Taco Egg Muffins with “banana chips” for breakfast (5 points+).
Mid-Morning I was starving and my stomach was pretty much going to eat itself. I really think it was from all the moving (I packed up my and my co-workers offices today!)
I decided I NEEDED a snack so I had a nectarine and a Sargento LF Colby Jack Cheese Square (2 points+).
Work actually bought us lunch today but I was really proud I passed up the sandwiches and opted for another Chinese Chicken Salad (7 points). I did take a couple of bites to try out the salads they offered up with the sandwiches, but, in the end…..nothing could beat how good this salad is.
I DID have one of their cookies for dessert….it was buttery, sugary, crispy good! 3 points+
Even though I probably earned enough activity points moving all day long, I hopped on the treadmill when I got home! I repeated the Couch to 5K 1.1 for 30 minutes followed up with about 10 minutes of yoga stretching.
I was STARVING once again and decided to snack on half a personal watermelon while dinner cooked. I LOVE watermelon ~ it makes me want summer to be here already!
Awhile back the folks at Schwan’s asked if I wanted to take a vacation from the kitchen and have them do the cooking for me. Ummmm, yes, please ~ who doesn’t want to have dinner made for them.?!
The Husband gets excited for dinners like this too because he can say he “cooked” for us and I am all about encouraging that
Schwan’s sent us the complete VEGETARIAN meal that included Baked Ziti, Five Cheese Garlic French Bread, MicrosSteam Baby Broccoli Florets and Chocolate Ice Cream.
Baked Ziti ~ 8 Points+ for 1/3 of the entire pan and a decent ingredient list.
MMMMM ~ I LOVED the looks of the hot melted cheese when it finished baking.
Not just any garlic bread, but, CHEESY GARLIC BREAD!
I LOVE how they come in individually wrapped packages so you only have to use what you actually need.
Keep in mind their stats are for an entire loaf ~ 9 points+
I sliced each loaf into 3 pieces each, making each slice more reasonable at 3 Points+ each.
The serving looks small, but, it was quite filling. It actually wasn’t too bad…the cheesy top was my favorite part.
Garlic bread goodness!
All together with a side of steamed broccoli topped with garlic salt, black pepper, a little butter and freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 point+)
I couldn’t wait to dig into dessert! I will take the REAL DEAL ice cream any day over a lower fat or sugar free version.
I was glad to see the stats were not bad ~ 4 points+ for a 1/2 cup serving.
Their ice cream is so soft, smooth and creamy, I used my 1/2 cup measuring scoop to easily measure it out. I almost ALWAYS add fruit to ice cream because it makes it FEEL like more.
1 banana+ 1/2 c chocolate ice cream + 1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips = LOVE for 6 points+!
Workout ~ check! Water ~ 92 ounces! Eat less ~ better, but, working on it still!
