Last weekend I confess to going off plan a little bit.
Well, maybe more than a little bit, but it was a lot of fun : )
I was up against the double whammy of Taber's birthday and Easter. I cooked a TON for both events and we had company over for both so yeah, lots of food and treats and desserts. I will be happy if I don't gain weight this week, but you never know, between nursing and upping my exercise I might come out even. : )
Exercise summary for last week:
Tuesday: ran 2.25 miles 9:55 pace
Wednesday: ran 2 miles 9:42 pace
Friday: ran 2.25 miles 9:47 pace
Saturday: ran 5 miles 10:13 pace
I'm happy that I'm getting a little faster and that running is getting easier. I'm right on track for my 5K training plan but I really want to start incorporating more strength training to tone my body up. I have this post pregnancy boot camp DVD that I want to try out. It looks hard though so I keep putting it off. haha!
And instead of a recipe today I thought I'd share some of my must have items for the refrigerator.
-The greek yogurt is probably of my favorite snacks of all time. It's so rich and filling and has tons of protein too! I like it in the afternoon as a snack or I'll add fresh fruit to it in the morning and have it for breakfast. It also tastes amazing in smoothies.
-I buy 3 dozen eggs at a time because I like to make omelets with one egg and 3 egg whites. add some ham, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and low fat cheese and you get a HUGE omelet for only 6 points plus!
-Almond milk is amazing in smoothies and a great way to sweeten oatmeal or cereal.
-Carrots are my go to snack when I just need to crunch on something. If I'm really hungry then I dip them in hummus. I buy the hummus in individual serving packets from Costco so I don't eat too much of it. That stuff is good!
-Spinach is great for salads and to stuff in sandwiches, wraps, omelets or even pasta.
-Romaine, great for salads
-Grapes, sweet late night treat.
-Oranges, my new favorite 0 point treat. I buy huge boxes of them at Costco and go through them so fast.
So those are my favorite fridge items. Do you have any must-haves that you stock up on? Fill free to share. Next time I'll do my freezer, lots of little gems in there too : )
