15 week challenge!

So, I joined a 15 week challenge from Amy's blog, and I'm really excited about it! I'm sure I won't win, because it is all about who loses the biggest percentage of weight, but I'm going to have fun doing it! She has challenges each week that you can do to earn more points. This week I am supposed to make a recipe, healthier and lower points, by switching some stuff around. I haven't figured out what I'm going to do yet, but it will be fun!

Yesterday went well! Here is how it looked!

Breakfast - Jumbo Rice Krispies - 2 points
Snack - Smartfood Popcorn Clusters - 1 point
Lunch - Healthy Choice Chicken Alfredo - 5 points
Dessert - 100 calorie pack Grasshopper cookies - 2 points
WORKOUT - 30 minutes
Snack - Strawberry jello dessert - 2 points
Snack - Vitabrownie - 1 point
Dinner - Flatout Pizza - 6 points
Dessert - Weight Watchers Ice cream bar - 2 points

So my friend and I are thinking about walking a 10k on Saturday. I've never done one, but I figured if we power walked it, it would be some good exercise, especially on July 4th, when we may be eating more than usual! I don't know if it is too late to sign up...so I have to look into it! Should be fun! Have a great day!

Well, honestly, I was pretty happy about last night. I was only up .6 of a pound. Not too bad for not going in 3 weeks. I have 9 pounds till goal weight...and it is really killing me! I've been right around the same 5 pounds for months now! I'm really trying to crank down again though...I want to be at goal before fall...and also cause we would like to have another baby next summer or so, so I want to be a Lifetime member before I get pregnant!

I just want to push the "Pizza" I posted about a couple days ago. I seriously am addicted to it. It is so amazingly good, and I think I may even eat it instead of real pizza. I'll give the exact recipe that I use, in case you want to try it!

"Flat Out Pizza"

1 Light Flat Out Wrap ( I use the Italian flavored )
Light Ragu Sauce ( or any sauce that has 40-50 calories per 1/2 cup )
2% milk OR Weight Watchers Mozzarella cheese
Turkey Pepperoni

Put the wrap on a cookie sheet and spread some sauce on it. Top with as much cheese as you like! ( I'm a big cheese lover, so I normally put 1/2 cup on....4 points worth! ) Put 6 pepperonis on top! ( LOL....I count 1 point for the sauce and the pepperoni, because both of them by themselves are 0 points, but I'm sure if you added up the calories together, it would be 1 point! )

Cook at 400 for 8-10 minutes...until the edges are a little crispy. Slice into 6 slices...and DEVOUR! I love spinach, so when I have some in my fridge, I would probably even forgo the pepperoni and put lots of spinach on instead! You will feel like you are eating an entire thin crust pizza. This ROCKS. Enough said! :-) GO TRY IT and let me know what you think!

June 22nd, 2009

I had a good day today, although I didn't end up getting to do my elliptical like I wanted to. I planned on doing it after the kids went to bed, but I had such a migraine headache, that there was NO way I could do it! Here is my day....

Breakfast - 1/2 cup oatmeal with 1 TBSP Splenda brown sugar - 4 points

Lunch - Healthy Choice Meal - 7 points - I gotta say, this meal is GREAT! It doesn't taste like a frozen meal at all! All three parts of it are awesome...it's one of my very favorite fast meals!

Snack - Yogurt - 2 points

Crystal Light Popsicle - 0 points ( sorry no pic! )

Dinner - Flat Out pizza - 6 points - You could easily make this for less points...but I am a cheese loving girl...so I had 4 points of cheese on there!! It was DELICIOUS!
Snack at my husband's softball game - 1 bag popcorn and an apple - 2 points

Dessert - Vitabrownie with frosting - 2 points

There you have it! We need to go grocery shopping really bad, so I need to be a little more creative today I think! I'm off to work, and then softball later tonight! Ciao! ( not literally...like "goodbye"....it's less points to do it that way! :-)

Things have been CRAZY

I'm so sorry...I have barely had time to take a shower lately! I've been working, then coming home and working on pricing tons of stuff for my garage sale this weekend! It has been insane around here! I'm literally non-stop busy running until Monday, the 22nd when we come back from Massachusetts! I feel horrible, cause I want to be posting, but honestly, there are about 3 million other things I should be doing this next week! I will TRY to post, if I can, but if I can't, be sure to check back on the 22nd, and I will then be back to my daily posting! Have a great week!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009


I'm back from the first part of my crazy week! I didn't do HORRIBLE...but I didn't do good either. Oh well...I had a great time away with my husband without the kids, and that's what counts! I will be posting daily Wednesday and Thursday, then I will be gone again and not posting until Monday. I have to run now...not literally...but that would be a good idea! :-) Have a great night and I'll see ya tomorrow!
