Lost something

Well, I am happy to say that this week I have lost another 1.4lbs. Doesn't sound like much I know but after being unable to workout and gaining so much weight I am happy with any result that is going in the other direction!

I was able to work out 5 day this week and did all the workouts to Leslie Sansone's walking at home DVD's I managed 4 of the 5 days to do 4 mile walks and the other day a 3 mile walk. Now these walks are not just walking, they include all muscles in the body and you do a bit of jogging etc. I sweat a ton so it's not like walking around the neighborhood, that's for sure!

Yesterday was my day off ( I take two days off a week) but I am unable to workout again today because yesterday I woke up feeling... sick! Darn! I am on a role and hate taking the time off but it must be done as I am just not up to it!

As a reward for my now 3.4 lbs of weight loss in two weeks I ordered in Swiss Chalet today! So what were my choices you might ask! Well, I had 1/2 a Greek salad with no dressing and instead used my calorie wise dressing of sundried tomato and oregano... plus I picked off the feta cheese! I don't miss it really so no loss there. I had about 3/4 of a breast with no skin, mashed potato which is less than the baked potato in points plus and 1/4 of a bun. They have changed their buns or I would have had the whole thing but I don't like them anymore... too dense for me. I also enjoyed a tsp of healthy margarine from home. I ended the day with a glass of milk and a Weight Watchers brownie!

I did go over in my points by 9 points but these last two weeks I have struggled to use all my points each day and have not delved into my extra points allowance at all so I think I deserve to use some of my extra points this week! Hopefully that will be all I use this week though and hopefully I will be back on my workouts soon and feeling much better.

For those of you who have the new Weight Watchers binder of recipes the Smokey Turkey Chili is fabulous! We made that last week and it was fantastic! Definitely worth a try if you like Chili!

I have tried a ton of recipes from this new booklet and they are all fabulous so far!

I found this adaptation of the chili on PrepAhead & Dine In blog if you don't have the book this is pretty close to what the Weight Watchers recipe is.

Be back soon with more ... wish me luck. I'm off to bed to rest this sick little body of mine!
