Today was the official Weight Watchers Walk It 5K Challenge. I LOVE this challenge ~ it has been all about getting everyone moving starting out with just 10 minutes of walking a day. Weight Watchers provided everyone with a 6 week training schedule, you earned little stars along the way for the Walk It Challenge with the ultimate goal to be able to walk a 5K.
The 5K could be anywhere ~ you could go alone, join an official race or go as part of a group. My location put together a group walk that turned out to be a 5K+ (we did 4 miles).
It was so fun to walk along encouraging and chatting with different people who share the same goals as I do, but, even better, The Husband went with me 😀 In all the races I’ve done over the past 10 years, he has only walked one with me. He did AWESOME 😀
Isn’t it funny how when you decide to NOT take your camera, you see a ton of things that make you want to take pictures….on our walk we saw:
* Beautiful rolling hills
* FANTASTIC peeps walking along a main street in our own walk-it challenge!
* Someone brought their baby in the little red wagon but their dog was pulling him like a horse a carriage – so funny!
* A BIG family of cows!
* All of us touching a red sign at the turn around point to symbolize the half way mark!
Good times and I’d totally do it all over again 😀
Before our walk, I snacked on 2 slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread topped with Nut Barn Crunchy Almond Butter and Pomengranate Jelly (4.5 pts).
So, I told The Husband he earned his Starbuck’s today and we refueled post race with Venti Iced FF, Decaf Lattes with a caramel drizzle (3 pts).
I am actually surprised at how well all this held me over. We did the walk a 8am and didn’t sit down for lunch until 2 pm.
1/2 cup Harvest Grain Salad (4 pts)
1 1/3 cups Melon (1 pt)
Cool, crisp Asian Slaw (Organic Broccoli Slaw + TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette) (1 pt)
Yesterday I whipped up a batch of Homemade Spicy Bean Dip. Have you all ever tried making your own? It’s SO EASY ~ simply put it all in your food processor and give it a whirl.
12 TJ;’s Organic Tortilla chips x’s 2 because I went back for more plus 1/2 c dip (7 pts) That’s why I don’t have really good chips around LOL.
Dinner wasn’t fancy at all but it completely hit the spot. Can you ever go wrong with pasta plus TJ’s Arrabiata Sauce and freshly shaved parmesan?!
1 c Barilla Plus Angel Hair Pasta (4 pts)
1/3 c Pasta Sauce (1 pt)
1 Tbsp shaved parmesan (1 pt)
Dessert ~ 1 cup cherries (1 pt)
I have to confess ~ I got all caught up on The Bachelorette today! I was going to boycott the season because I didn’t really like her drama….but, then, I heard all the places they are travelling and I totally want to see the countries they visit. I guess like some of the guys, I am not in it for Ali LOL 😀 Oh and all the scandals sound fun too! I can’t wait for the show tomorrow now!
