4 down....lots to go

Goals.....I did ok this week. exercise and recipes I rocked! The other two....well, lets just say better luck next week.

Mileage: I completed above and beyond my 60 mile mark for this week. (just above...but I did it). I'm still behind by 35 miles or so....but I'm on a roll and I'm going to make that up soon!

Strength training: Nada

Recipes: I tried three new recipes.
** Sweet and Spicy Wings which turned out quite tasty!
**Baked Mozzarella sticks.....I've missed cheese sticks as an appetizer, so I was super excited about these!
** Cake balls. Not at all fact, step away from the computer...they are delicious, but highly fattening!

Weigh: Well when my official weigh in day came, my home scales showed a loss...the weight watcher meeting (not my normal) that I attended showed a gain. Go figure.

Last weeks goals:
Water consumption- I did ok, except for one day
Healthy foods-I struggled with some of my choices this week. After the first two days of my weight watchers week I looked at my counter and realized that I only have 8 flex points left for the week. YIKES! I ate that much extra food in TWO days!
Exercise-I made my 60 miles...with about 3 miles to spare! So I didn't cut deeply into the deficit, but I didn't go in the hole any further!

So for this week. Basically more of the same
1. water consumption
2. Healthy foods
3. Eradicate the mileage deficit that I have!!!

The chicken wings sounds delicious. As for the cake balls, one would lead to another and another.

Maryfran, You're doing good...keep it up girl!! I went to school at Conestoga Valley, I lived off of the Old Phila. Pike, but lots of my friends are from LEOLA!! Now I live in Lititz, and yes, Lancaster is picturesque. Small world!!
thanks for commenting on my blog!

Great job on the mileage! That is truly impressive. I hate when scales differ. That is so frustrating. Go with the home scale :) Have a super weekend.

Will definitely try the wings and the motz sticks! Keep up the great work!

I AM SO TRYING THOSE CHEESE STICKS!! One of my co-workers sold cake balls week after week after week after week for the holidays. If I never see another cake ball again it will be too soon. I ate one when they were free and when she started selling the cake balls I was like...not thanks!

Sounds like your working your plan. Keep your eyses on the prize. I only weigh in at my WW meetings. I don't even keep a scale at home. Well good luck and keep it moving!

Goals are good and you are choosing a small, manageable number of goals.

I tried a new recipe this week that you might like-Chicken Fajita Pizza. I used a whole wheat crust and very little cheese. Even my picky husband liked it. E-mail me if you want the recipe.
