Hi everyone! Somehow I managed to lose two pounds last week! I am less than half a pound away from Weight Watchers first goal for me and less than 15 from my first goal. I was a bit surprised that I lost weight, especially two pounds but I’m not complaining. I’m just hoping the last two football weekends don’t catch up with me when I weigh on Saturday. Over the past 14 weeks, I’ve been training for a 10K using the 10K for Pink App. Well, yesterday, I completed the program. I managed to run 6.21 straight miles without stopping. It was a slow process but I did it and I am so proud of myself. I don’t think I’d want to do runs like that all the time because it took every ounce of remaining energy from my body and I’m all achy. It just seems crazy to me because a few years ago, I probably couldn’t have run more than 10 feet without passing out. It’s amazing what dedication can do. I just wish I could get the calorie intake that strict. I’d be in business.
So, on the new Weight Watchers program, it’s much more difficult to fit potatoes into your diet. They aren’t too keen on them because of all the carbohydrates. Well, I found these imitation potatoes from Betty Crocker. I know this is a processed food and it’s certainly not in fashion to eat something like this but you get a big pile of mashed potatoes for four points. I’ve also been adding this Greek Yogurt based French Onion Dip that I found which makes a great substitute for sour cream. I served those potatoes last week with chicken sausage. I know it’s not the prettiest plate ever but I was full for seven points and I think that’s pretty valuable.
Alabama rolled over Arkansas like crazy on Saturday. I will be missing these less exciting games in the next few weeks as Bama prepares to play Tennessee, Auburn and LSU. I always love the Alabama-Tennessee game. It’s a heated rivalry and those are the best. It’s coming up this weekend. Roll Tide.
That’s all for today.
