when this was taken....
So I went to WW today. And....DOWN 2.6! Yay! Such an encouragement. Considering I enjoyed the super bowl party I went too, I was kind of worried about weighing. But I did take a ton of the food to the party we went too. Including pigs in blanket- made with turkey pigs and reduced fat blanket...So that helps! It's amazing how much exercise helps with a loss. Those few weeks I was barely exercising, I was having such a hard time losing. But with my running and such, I think losing will only be easier. I ran with my girls yesterday. Totally forgot how hard it is to run pushing a double stroller! You need your arms more than you realize! But I did it and it felt so good. We are planning to go again today since it's going to be pretty! I LOVE the small touches of spring we get. So so lovely.
I like to cook on Sunday the food we are going to eat for dinner all week. It makes it so much easier when you can walk into the house at 5:45 and heat up dinner. Well, it is sometimes tough to make things that are healthy and good and that both Andrew and I enjoy. You see, Andrew eats like a child. I'm serious. When we asked him what food he would like to have at our wedding reception he said, "Chips and queso and chicken strips". So cooking has been difficult. But, I have found some easy, healthy and delicious recipes. One of which I am going to share with you-
-4 chicken breasts boiled until cooked through (about 15 minutes)
-after cooling cut up chicken breasts into small bites.
-In a large bowl mix together chicken bites, a large can of black beans, a can of green chilies, and 1 cup of non fat Greek yogurt, cumin to taste and cayenne pepper to taste. (the original recipe calls for fat free sour cream. I don't love how it cooks up, so I use Greek yogurt. So much better).
After mixing set aside.
-Pre heat over to 350 and spray a large Pyrex.
-take 6 corn tortillas and line the bottom of the baking dish
-Pour chicken mixture over tortillas
-top with 1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese
-bake for 30 minutes
serve with salsa
killer. to die for. so good. Its 8 servings and each serving is 7 points. Its filling. I load it up with jalapenos. I like super spicy!
