BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 7

Recommended Posts

I am not doing too bad so far!! I have been eating good but I am not getting enough water and I havent been able to make it to the gym. FI and I just got a new puppy about 2 weeks ago, and now FI is gone to AHL hockey camp so I am taking care fo her on my own (shes a miniature pinscher, almost 12 weeks).

Jacilyn I can't wait for the recipes!!

 

Anyone know good ways (other than adding crystal light or lemon to it) to get in the right amount of water per day?

Ok so I'm sitting here trying to decide what to make tonight and looking at recipes so I thought I'd throw a few out for you! I bought this healthy cooking cookbook and picked out meals for dinner and put them on a calendar then we picked lunch and breakfast. We set a budget for cals and eat day made sure we didn't go over. So here are a few recipes

 

The first night I made this AMAZING steak we had it again 2 night later. SO delish!

3. Heat olive oil in large nonstick skill over medium-high heat. Add steaks; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove steaks from pan; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 4 to 5 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

4. While steaks bake, combine beer and brown sugar in a medium bowl; add to skillet, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 6 minutes or until mixture is slightly syrupy and reduced to about 1/4 cup. Serve steaks w/ reduced sauce; sprinkle evenly w/ cheese. yields 4 servings

I will give you some more at another time! If you're interested I bought the book at Barnes & Noble called Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast. It has 300 recipes of soups, salads, sandwiches, meatless main dishes, fish & shellfish, meat, and poultry. It all looks so good and its healthy. There are also some desserts listed throughout. But we've been picking a main and mixing and matching w/ different sides and I love it has calories listed cause its really helped Joe and I keep on track. The food is so good and I'm done w/ 30 minutes!

 

Enjoy ladies!

I don't eat red meat but I will definitely give these a shot for FI! The sides intrigue me though, I wonder if the pork one could be adapted for chicken?

 

How was everyone's Friday? Making out ok?

Ladies, I wanted to post our first daily challenge earlier today, but totally lost track of time. So, here's a WEEKEND CHALLENGE:

 

At some point this weekend do 50 crunches and 25 push-ups (yes the girly way counts lol)

 

I figured since its the weekend it'll be good to start with a work out challenge and start off slow. Let us all know how you do!

Of course! :)

So, yesterday I walked/ jogged for 45 minutes outside and then came in and did my 50 crunches and 25 push-ups. I have to admit, the push-ups were killer and I almost stopped after just 6. I'm weak. lol Its raining today, but if it stops I'd like to head out for a walk.
