And we’re off!!!

Well my “new start” is off to a great start!! 🙂  Wednesday went really well eating-wise and exercise-wise!  I can do this!!!

I am needing to use up the rest of the wheatberries I cooked this weekend so in my breakfast it went again!! 🙂  It’s not too much of a burden though – I love the chew and texture it gives to my oatmeal!  Today I decided to do 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup RF vanilla soy milk, 1/4 cup wheatberries, cinnamon, and one of those teeny cute little boxes of raisins!  I absolutely LOVE raisins in oatmeal!!!  Well, I love raisins in anything, but especially oatmeal!

Trust me, it tasted better than it looks!

Breakfast = 315 calories

Snack was simple and easy – a defrosted Vitamuffin.  I really love these things!  They’re so easy and healthy and filling!  This one was AppleBerry Bran – my favorite!!

Snack = 100 calories

This morning I had NO clue what to pack for lunch and didn’t have the time to sit and decide, so I made up my mind and decided to do a PB&J sandwich since I had some Homemade Strawberry Jam thawed out in the fridge at work.  I haven’t had a classic PB&J sandwich for a long time!  My picture looks kind of funny because I couldn’t decide if I wanted the sandwich on bread or toast, so I decided to do one piece of each! 🙂  Problem solved!

My day is going fairly fast – I love that!  It helps knowing that we have an extended weekend coming up with the holiday!!!  And, as of now they’re predicting great weather (70’s and sunny) so I am hoping it stays that way!

For a snack, I decided to finally make my “Apple Pie Enchilada”!!!  I will post the recipe sometime today!  But for now, here’s a sneak preview 🙂

After work it was time to hit the gym.  I was somewhat nervous because I haven’t been lifting weights as often lately – I’ve been doing more cardio with trips to the dog park because it’s been so nice outside and it gives Baylee the exercise she desperately needs 🙂  Since it was a gorgeous day outside, I decided to leave my car at work and WALK to the gym!!  It’s about a 15 minute walk so it was a great warm up to my workout!!  I got there and did about 30 minutes of weights, and then took a loooong way back to my car.  The total workout was about 75 minutes.

Workout = 310 calories burned

I was looking forward to supper ALL DAY LONG!  I knew what I was going to be making but have never done it before – Chicken Parmesan.  SO easy I don’t know why I haven’t!!

Basically, all I did was first bake some chicken breasts until they were cooked through.  I then placed them in a baking dish, and added a can (I used Hunt’s) of spaghetti sauce.  I baked that for another 10 minutes or so until the sauce was hot.  After it was hot, I added about 1/4 cup of LF Mozarella cheese on top of each chicken breast.  Meanwhile, I cooked some WW Angel Hair Pasta.  I took about 3/4 cup of pasta and placed a chicken breast on top.  Ta Da!  With it, I made some Joseph Champione (sp?) Light Garlic Bread and whipped up a salad with fresh blueberries and blackberries!  It was SO good!  Chad even commented like 4 times while we were eating how good it was!  That’s always a good sign 🙂

Supper = 425 calories

We then took Baylee for a walk together.
