It’s weird but when I go to WW on Sunday and come back home, I am never hungry. Which is weird because usually I need to eat within 1/2 an hour of waking up.
So when Tony and I ran an errand yesterday, we stopped at Subway. Tony is a fan of the footlong BMT – he eats half one day and the other half the next day – total deal for $5. I got the egg white sammie on whole grain oat bread. So this was my breakfast and lunch – I haven’t looked up the points yet, but my guess is 8.
*Note to self – remember to change back the white balance setting!
I am joining Lori’s Heart Healthy Challenge next week. My goal is to run 5 miles in 55 minutes.
Helen is the running guru – she once told me to do hills on the treadmill to prepare myself for running outside. I decided to do the hill climb until I ran a 5k. I walked the first 5 minutes to warm up. Wow, was it hard – the last incline was at 11%! But I told Hannah when the treadmill was at 0% incline, it felt like I was running so fast!
I plan on running the 5 miles at 0% incline though! Yep Skippy, my cheeks are rosy!
I made another pot of the best beef stew - you guys really have to make this – the cinnamon brown sugar mixture that you toss the meat in before searing makes this dish. The only thing I did differently was to use Miller High Life instead of Sam Adam’s. For some reason my sauce wasn’t as thick this time either, but still delicious!
With a side of toasty bread, dinner comes in at around 12 points.
So Tony and I are on a tight budget, the only room I have control over is the groceries. I usually spend about $100 a week. This week?
What’s on the menu?
- egg, cheese and spinach wonton cups
- zucchini pancakes with buffalo chicken sausage egg whites
- breakfast parfait with blueberry sauce and granola
- bacon spinach egg white omelet with sauteed apples
- pecan maple scones
- bbq shredded pork with vinegar coleslaw and apples
- mexican stuffed red peppers
- taco salad
- shrimp stirfry with broccoli
- Indian spiced mini meatball soup
- beef stew
- whole roasted rosemary lemon chicken
- chicken and biscuits
- pork chop milanese with baked potatoes
- short rib ragu pasta
So not too bad for $83 bucks!
Tony watched America’s Test Kitchen and saw a recipe for cranberry muffins – that’s on my list of things to make today, along with the Indian spiced soup.
What are you cooking up this week? Enjoy your Sunday!
