I am so happy to write this post!!!
That’s my happy face ;). We have 20 lovely ladies signed up for Fabulous Fall 2010! Between those 20 ladies 175 pounds have been pledged….TO LOSE!!!! That’s awesome!!! And if we make this year’s Challenge as successful as last year we can DOUBLE that loss number! Can you imagine 350 pounds GONE?! I know we can do this ladies!!!
So here’s how we will start!
I have received all of your Pledges/Info and logged down your name and your pounds. I will be sending out weekly email blitzes to keep you motivated and remind you to keep your end of the Challenge by checking in with me according to your Pledge.
Your next steps:
1) Go grab a really pretty notebook! It can be any size, it can be blank, lined, calendar/memo style….just get something that you WANT to write in DAILY!
2) On Monday 9/6/10 I want you to weigh in and write that EXACT number down in that notebook. Do NOT alter that number, it’s just for you-should you want to share it that’s fine. After weighing and logging please visit http://www.freebmicalculator.net/ and find out where you stand. Please log that number in as well. (NOTE- I will be doing everything along with you!)
3) At some point in the day I want you to write a little journal entry to yourself. Write down how you’re feeling about yourself, why you want to lose weight/get healthy, and I want you to end your entry with: “I AM WORTH IT! I DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY!”
4) Take the weekend to plan out your meals for the coming week, also find a water bottle that you think is fun and holds at least 32 oz and start using it! Water is KEY!
We will start there with more tips/recipies/work out fun to come during the week!!!
Now I have a couple of quick and easy dinners for you!
Balsamic Chicken Pita “Pizza”
1 package boneless skinless chicken cutlets-diced
1/2 white onion sliced thin
2 tablespoons minced garlic (I used the pre-minced in the jar)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
2 cups fresh baby spinach
pinch sea salt
2 wedges Laughing Cow cheese
3 whole wheat pitas
In a large skillet coated with EVOO saute onion and garlic until soft and aromatic, add in chicken pieces and allow to cook together. Once chicken is cooked through- drizzle Balsamic thoroughly coating everything. Add in spinach and mix well, allow spinach to wilt down. Set aside an allow to cool.
Place pitas on work surface and spread cheese onto pitas, splitting the wedges so each pita has the same amount. Spoon chicken mixture on top of pita and place in pre heated oven that’s set to broil. Place pitas directly on rack and allow them to crisp. Serve warm!
large can (28 oz) of sugar free tomato puree (once can is open stir in 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning)
1 bag frozen chopped spinach
1 box no boil lasagna noodles
Begin by coating the bottom of casserole dish with tomato puree, then place noodles on top of sauce, followed by frozen spinach, top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, and repeat entire process until your layers reach the top! Your top layer should be noodles-then sauce-with a sprinkling of cheese. Bake in pre-heated 375 oven, covered with foil for 60 minutes, uncover and cook for additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow lasagna to set, serve warm!
I hope you all have a wonderful LONG WEEKEND!!
Healthy Wishes, T
