My version of Chicken Parmesan

This was my impromptu dinner idea. I cooked Whole Wheat angel hair pasta, I had a jar of Barilla garlic flavored tomato sauce, I had some chicken tenders in the freezer. I cooked the pasta, and set it aside. In a skillet I sprayed Pam cooking spray and turned the skillet on medium to heat…

Muffin of the Week

I love muffins! The only problem is that I would go by my local bakery every morning for an enormous muffin. I’m pretty sure they were in the 800 calorie range, not to mention baked with butter which has tons of fat. This led me on my quest to find muffin recipes that would satisfy…

Great Memorial Day Weekend so far !

This was my breakfast this morning. I made Whole Grain Pancakes from a recipe I got from www.weightwatchen.com The only bad thing is once I started, I realized I didn’t have any eggs! But, I thought maybe it will work without an egg?? I adapted the recipe just a bit. 1/2 cup of quick oats…

Great Thursday!

I have a bunch to share today! Today I had a totally deluxe lunch. These are Ball Park Turkey Bun length hot dogs. Each hot dog is only 45 calories. So this weekend, when you are either having a bbq for Memorial Day weekend, or going to one, bring a package of these and you…

Weigh in Wednesday!

Every Wednesday is my Weight Watchers meeting, and I am happy to say I am down another pound, making my grand total 9 pounds so far!  My goal for the coming week is to cut down (or out) the snacking over the weekend.  I love chips of all varieties!  If I hadn’t indulged in that…

Updated lunches and dinners

Please check on the “pages” at the top for updates on my lunches and dinners. I have added a few more ideas!

My new favorite cereal/snack

Fiber One cereal  found this at the store yesterday. I LOVE Golden Grahams cereal, and this tastes just like that except healthier! For a 1 CUP serving its only 180 calories, 3 fat and 9 grams of fiber. I brought it for my breakfast, I didn’t have milk with it, but I kind of crushed…

Weigh-in Wednesday!!

I lost 3 pounds this week!   I have been on a journey with Weight Watchers.  I started in July of 1999 at an all time high of 199.6!  By April of 2000, I was at 130!  I never in a million years would have thought I could get back to that weight.  I stayed at…

My lunch dilemma!

We’ve all been there. You make a commitment to yourself that you are going to eat healthier, exercise more and really take control and try to lose weight. Then, life steps in and you are in a serious dilemma. This is exactly what happened to me at work. I did what I was supposed to,…

Southwest Bowl

I almost always bring my lunch to work.  Or I should say food to work, because not only do I usually bring breakfast, but my snacks too.  This morning, I didn’t really know what to make, so I just kind of threw things together that I thought might taste good, and I was pleasantly surpised!…
