I’ve decided to post my weigh-ins every Monday to give me motivation to not gain a ton of weight during the upcoming holiday season. My goal is to be 155 by January 1. I think that is completely possible! Last week I weighed in at 166. Today. . .
I love this scale! After you stand on it for a few seconds, it blinks to let you know its locked in the weight. Then I can actually take a decent picture of the number! So I am down –2.6 for the week. 😀
For breakfast this morning I had a honeycrisp apple that I nuked in the microwave. I actually pushed the “fresh vegetable” setting and it was nice and tender. I put 1 ounce of 50% reduced fat Cabot cheese on top and broiled the cheese, then sprinkled with 1/2 ounce of granola. HOLY YUM! Loved the sweet/salty combo of the apple and cheese, and I liked the added crunch of the granola!
Since i had a lot of chicken leftover from our chicken tostadas last night, I decided to make a chicken quesadilla. My tortillas were low carb, only 50 calories each and a whopping 7 grams of fiber for each one!
I put 1 tablespoon of refried beans on each side, 3 ounces of chicken breast, 1 ounce of Cabot reduced fat cheese, then Pam fried it. After it was cooked I added the lettuce and red pepper. It was messy to eat but delicious!
Over the weekend I made low cal taco soup. Wondering why it looks orange? That’s because the peppers I put in the broth were too spicy, so I ended up adding 1/2 cup of fat free half and half to bring it down a notch. So while it doesn’t look too appealing, it tasted good!
I have to show my snowman bowl I have at my desk. It’s an all season bowl, and I always make sure the snowman in season is facing me – here is November . . . soon to be December!
I decided to try a pork chop recipe that called for a dijon mustard cream sauce. It was kind of a flop. While the flavor was there, the sauce never thickened properly and I overcooked the pork chops. My rosemary new potatoes were delicious though! it helps to start with fresh rosemary.
My plate: I ate 1/2 of this pork chop – it was 6 ounces total.
And like most nights, I usually spill something either on me, the floor, or the counter! I was staining straining the mustard sauce to a gravy boat, and didn’t even realize I had spilled while I was doing it!
After dinner I made pumpkin pancakes for my breakfast tomorrow! Here’s a sneak peak – you’ll have to come back tomorrow for the recipe! 😀
