Is it Monday already?

Well last week was good. I benefited so much from all the food I had prepared for the week. We ate every last bit of food I had prepared and even had some to freeze in individual containers quick meal options. I'm just impressed by all the salad I ate. Making up individual salads really does make it easier to eat. Normally I would have had wilted romaine hanging out in the fridge until I took pity on it and threw it away.

The scale reflects my week of healhty eating. Yesterday morning it read 144.6lbs! And that's after a night of cookie eating (with my flexies ofcourse).

So, I went to the grocery and did it all again last night. Bought fresh veggies, fruits and grains to make another week of meals. Last night I made 2 Tomato-Basil Quiches and one big batch of Wild Rice with celery, onion, red pepper and mushrooms (1 cup=1 pt!). I cut up all the fruit, salads, etc and put them in easy grab individual containers. Today I'm making Creamed Broccoli Soup, Pasta with Feta and Roasted Veggies and a side dish of marinated Yellow Squash with Shallots. I can freeze the soup and we'll eat the Pasta today.

I have my Heat (aka Hell) in 2 hours. *deep breaths*

*****Update*******

Went to my Heat class. Killed me of course, but in a good way. Had another day of cooking! I even had time to whip up some Cranberry-Peanut Butter Cookies. 1 pt a cookie! Unfortunately I had 5 of them.

Here's my tracker:

mocha: 3 pts
muffin: 3 pts
grapes: 1pts
Cauliflower risotto, wild rice, roll: 7 pts
Heat class: + 4 pts
mocha: 3 pts ( I know, another)
5 cookies: 5 pts
broccoli soup:2 pts
roll: 1 pt
pasta/roasted veggies: 4 pt

= -5 pts (used 5 Flex)

I'm finding that if I get the kids outside during that 4-6pm window, I do much better on the eating front. That's my stress time and I stress eat if we're trapped inside. I took them to a park and we ran around and played. :)

That's awesome, Jen. You've inspired me once again with all your quick meal portions. I love fresh salads and have yet to find the trick to keeping them fresh for a few days. Did yours keep fresh in the smaller containers? I'm going to have to try that.
I'm amazed at how quickly you can lose weight, girl! It takes me like a month to drop 2 pounds.
I'm doing good, though! 141 for the past week or so!
