It is Weight Watchers Wednesday Week 7, and I have lost 1.6 lbs. for a running total of 17.4 lbs. to date, and yes those oz. matter when you are trying this hard!
It was a pretty good week and I have been enjoying my progress in the exercise arena. I have stopped working out with Lon at night, it makes me too wired to sleep well. Instead I have been exercising during the day, which is a little more challenging. When I am in the floor doing exercises, Connor wants to ride on my back and says "bronco ride" over and over. Walker enjoys watching and tells me I am dancing. If I miss a step or don't get up or down fast enough, Walker a.k.a "Coach" is sure to tell me. I can tell a big difference in my energy level and I hope that continues. The one change I should make is I need to start pressing myself a little harder. Without Lon to keep up with, I tend to fall into my comfort zone and I don't sweat nearly as much. I'm gonna work on that this week.
For this week's recipe, I am gonna give you a little spread I have been using.
Cream Cheese Chicken Spread:
8 oz. fat free cream cheese
1 cup shredded chicken
1/2 tsp. garlic salt (to taste, some people like more and some less)
1/2 tsp. onion powder (to taste)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
Mix all ingredients. Makes 4 servings at 2 pts. each. You can use the canned shredded chicken, but I just made my own. If you use the canned chicken you may need to recalculate the points because I don't have one handy.
I was gonna add other diced veggies, but carrots was all I had. Sometimes I only eat 1/2 of a serving because that will be enough to fill 1 celery stick. When you eat it that way, it is only 1 pt., including the celery, and is very filling. It was delish. I also spread it on a whole wheat low carb tortilla (2 pts.) for lunch one day. Add some Baked Lay's, and fruit on the side and you have a feast for one. YUM!
One last thing. As I have shared time and time again, I have a SERIOUS SWEET TOOTH! When I am in the mood for chocolate or cake, daily, this is my "go to" dessert. I have tried every lowfat cupcake/ muffin/cookie on the market, and this one is hands down the best. They taste like the real deal and are only 1 pt. for a pack of 3. Yes I said 1 pt.! They are moist and satisfying. I would probably be 17.4 lbs. heavier without them.How did all my WWW's buddies do this week?
