Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful week.
For me, this week was all about getting back on track. And it actually felt great. I'm down a pound and a half. Finally out of the 220's. Yea!!
I always weigh myself three times. I know...it's one of my weird things. Twice I weighed 218 and the third time I weighed 218.5. So we will go with that. I probably need to get a better scale. One that will show more than a .0 or .5....but this one has served me well thus far. And...lezz be honest...like I need those extra decimals to obsess over. :)
I was able to work out 4 times this past week and I've set a goal for myself to do that again. I never in a million years thought I would be the type of person who actually looked forward to a workout, but it's actually happening. What's also happening is that my arms are getting toned and muscular. I actually can feel defined triceps. What the what??? It's pretty amazing.
My eating was pretty repetitive this week, but I didn't mind one bit. I'm still loving the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit cups for breakfast. I've played around with the recipe a bit and I've gotten the calories even lower. Monday night I made a Sloppy Joe Casserole and ate that for three nights in a row. But Thursday's dinner...it's my favorite new thing of all.
Not sure what to call this exactly, but it's a Mission tostada shell with a schmear of nonfat refried beans, and a little bit of 2% shredded cheddar. I broil it for a few seconds until everything is nice and melty and then top it with a scrambled egg, avocado slices, and some hot sauce. Although I've been eating it for dinner, it would probably make a great weekend breakfast.
Just delicious. I am going to try a different version this week with some shredded chicken or maybe pork carnitas in place of the egg. The tostada shells are only 55 calories each. ¡Qué magnífico!
I hope everyone has a great week! Thanks for reading!
