Happy Hump Day all! Seriously ~ how good was Biggest Loser last night?! I absolutely LOVED it and I have to say I was completely shocked by WHO GAINED the 2 lbs! I LOVE it when they run the Marathon….I really think it just further reinforces the fact that you can do ANYTHING YOU WANT TO TO IF YOU JUST PUT YOUR MIND TO IT!!! I also think Daris made a really good point that it’s HARD to lose weight while training for a Marathon even if Jillian and Bob made him feel bad for saying it…IT’s TRUE!!! You may shrink in size since muscle takes up less space that fat, but, 1 lb is 1 lb whether it is fat or muscle it weighs the same! Ok….soap box done!
I can’t wait for the SEASON FINALE and Biggest Loser Giveaway I have for you all next week!!! 😀
Did you all see this BEFORE & AFTER PICTURE ARTICLE of the BL Contestants yet????
One day I will remember to take another picture before I down my Homemade Misto ( 1 c decaf french vanilla, 1 c FF milk, Caramel Drizzle, ice) ~ 2 points!
Nothing really sounded good to me this morning…but, CHEESE always sounds good 😀
1 slice TJ’s Cracked Wheat Sour Dough Bread
1 Laughing Cow Lite Wedge
1 Tbsp Organic Apricot Preserves
Crunchy, chewy, creamy, sweet……delicious (4 pts)!
Mid morning I planned on snacking on this beautiful nectarine but it was SO SOUR! I tossed it and had my cabot with 2 Ak Mak Sesame Crackers not pictured (2 pts).
Today’s lunch had 3 LEVELS of spice and GREAT chewing power!
Spice #1 ~ Spicy, Juicy, Chicken Taco Meat (I promise this is the last day!)
Spice #2 ~ Blazin’ Jalapeno CRUNCH ~ you choke breathing these in!
THE BREAK DOWN:
2 types of Organic Greens
Organic Broccoli Slaw
1/2 c Spicy Chicken
1/2 oz Finely Shredded Low Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Creamy, cooling AVOCADO!
5 crushed Blazin’ Jalapeno Doritos
Sweet Mini peppers to make it look HOT…..
Then, my co-worker recommended Spice #3 ~ TJ’’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette!
WOW! I really am starting to think that this whole Mexican Asian Fusion needs to be a new type of cuisine ~ this 6 point salad was AMAZING!
I seriously would’ve LICKED MY PLATE if my co-workers were not around ;P
You know you ALWAYS have to have something sweet after something spicy because it KILLS the heat 😀 Enter…..FROYO from Over The Top Yogurt Shop!!!
FF Vanilla, Chocolate & PINEAPPLE topped with sprinkles, yogurt chips and a little Heath Bar Crunch (5 pts)
I couldn’t decide what to make for dinner tonight….I was first thinking of this Homemade Pizza Margharita until I saw the Dinner Tonight Chicken, Cashew & Red Pepper Stir Fry.
NOBODY was around for me to ask…so, I showed the cashier at Trader Joe’s the pictures and asked him which one he wanted 😀
The hardest part of tonight’s dinner was chopping the veggies.
I LOVE any recipe that lets me use my Italian Grater
and my All-Clad Stir Fry Pan!
I followed the recipe for the most part, but, I added broccoli, a little Oyster sauce and used more Sriracha ~ a 1/2 tsp isn’t enough HEAT! 😉
Now if you can manage to eat 1/4 of this HUGE dish ~ it’s only 7 points a serving!
I steamed up some Bok Choy of the side and sprinkle it with a little sea salt.
PLUS: Super Fancy TJ’s Organic Frozen Brown Rice that looks like I spent hours instead of 3 minutes cooking it 😀 LOL
I had 1/2 a serving and it still seemed HUGE (4 pts). We both really liked the flavor ~ it’s sweet, spicy and a little tangy. The chicken actually reminded me a bit of Sate Chicken.
1/2 c TJ’s Brown Rice (2 pts)
GET READY FOR A SHOPPORTUNISTIC GIVEAWAY COMING UP TOMORROW!!!
Have a great night all!!!
