5 Week Challenge…Day’s 25 & 26

June 22, 2015

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I got in lots of activity and enjoyed the weekend with family and friends.

Saturday morning…7:00 am, walked the dogs for 1 mile, followed with Hot Yoga at 8:00 am. I mowed and trimmed the lawn and trimmed a few bushes by 10:30. I used my App while mowing and determined I actually walk just over 1 mile while mowing, so I’m including that in my Walking Challenge. I walked another 3 miles after mowing. bringing my total for the day to 5 miles. It felt great to get all of that activity in before noon. It was a great day earning lots of activity points.



Sunday morning at 7:00 am, was a walk/run with Tucker and Mike. The three of us made a really good team getting in lots of spurts of running along the way. I am loving having these two go with me!



Here are Saturday’s eats……

Breakfast – 4 PPV

Toast with 1/8th Smashed Avocado, Egg, Fruit, Black Coffee



Lunch – 8 PPV

Leftover Spicy Black Bean Burger and Salad



Snack – 7 PPV

Un-Pictured Two Light Beers at a friends house.

Dinner – 4 PPV

We ordered Chinese Take out, and mine tasted disgusting. I decided I really wasn’t hungry anyhow so I drank a beer at a friends while we watched the last two innings of the Royals game. Nice, huh?  🙂

I had my dad and stepmom over for Father’s Day Brunch, and I made a big Skillet with Turkey Sausage, Eggs, Potatoes and Cheese. My dad’s only request was biscuits and Orange Marmalade. He’s a simple guy. I made Yogurt Parfait’s too, (with my Plain Greek Nonfat Yogurt and Vanila Stevia drops and Cinnamon) and everyone loved them!



Lunch – 21 PPV

We went to my In-Laws for lunch, and she makes the best brisket and pies! Brisket, Potato Salad, Fruit, Salad and……….



…..a Sliver each of Apple Pie and Banana Cream Pie with Cool Whip, Coffee



Dinner – 11 PPV

I wasn’t even going to cook, but I’ve had the ingredients for this Zucchini Noodle Lasagna for over 4 days. I really wanted to make it and I was in the mood to cook. I opened a bottle of wine, and got busy in the kitchen. Mike was watching golf and napping on the couch, and I was cooking and having wine. I was in heaven. There were several steps and it wasn’t ready to eat until about 8:30. We really weren’t hungry, so we had a little wine together on the deck and shared a slice of this awesome No Pasta, Zucchini Lasagna from my SkinnyTaste cookbook.

Guess what’s for dinner tonight???

    You had an awesome week! Congrats! That’s a nice loss.

    I LOVED the lasagna! It was a little more work than I thought it was going to be, but I was in the mood to cook, so it all worked out.

    I’ve made several things out of that cookbook and have loved them all.

    Keep it up girl! Nice job!

  2. A big weekend done in good taste and lots of movement–bravo.
    Oh I have the Skinnytaste cookbook how was the lasagna?
    WW Saturday was down 2.2 so here goes week 3 no wheat.
    I find myself not craving food all the time–I hope this last!
