But I actually lost .6 and am down to 334.8. I'm very happy with that considering I didn't think I was going to lose anything! It's not quite the 1 lb I was hoping for, but that happens.
I did exceptionally well all week, staying in my points and exercising for at least 11 minutes a day...
Yes, 11 minutes.
The first week, I promised myself I would do 10 minutes a day and this past week, I added a minute. Guess what? This week, I'm adding another minute, bringing it to a total of 12 minutes a day. And I'll keep doing that everyday until I'm up to 30 minutes. That's my goal for now (and I should reach that sometime this fall, I do believe). After I hit 30, I'll adjust my goal accordingly. I think my aim will be anywhere from 30-45 minutes daily.
Lastly, I have a quick and easy salad recipe to share.
I've been doing a lot of indoor grilling lately and marinating boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a homemade southwest marinade. After marinating for a few hours (or overnight), I throw those puppies on the stove top grill.
Chop the chicken up, throw it on a bed of lettuce with some tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, and a little light sour cream and you've got dinner. You could also add some cheese in there too, but I chose to forego it.
Southwest Marinated Chicken
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 cloves crushed garlic
2 tbsp lime juice (lemon would work as well)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp dried minced onion
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp corriander
salt & pepper to taste
I throw this marinade together with the chicken in a big zip lock bag. The last time I made it, in fact, I used frozen chicken and just allowed it to thaw in the marinade on the counter during the day and it was perfect.
Thanks for stopping by!
