I've been doing Core for a while, but I've switched back to the Flex plan starting today. I'm sure that a little bit of measuring and journaling will get me right back on track!
My exercise class also starts back up on Thursday, to that'll help, too.
2lbs in 2 weeks is not bad at all this time of year!! Good for you! I do the flex as well. I was going to try core, but absolutely none of the foods sounded even remotely good to me.
I need my junk and my chocolate every now and then so I'm better off measuring a tiny portion of chocolate then going nuts on somethin I don't really like.
I just discovered 2 recipes over the weekend that I am nuts for now. If you like junk food.
Baked tostitos (20 of them) and 1/4 Fat Free cheddar cheese. Melted over the chips in the micro for 1 minute. Nachos!!! and only a total of 3pts for the whole plate!
Also - cheese chips. Ever try these? My kids went nuts on them and ate them all on me.
1 cup part skim milk shredded mozerella cheese, 2TBSP parmasan cheese, 1TBSP flour. Mix and drop by the TBSP'fuls onto a baking sheet (sprayed with Pam). Bake 5-7 minutes. To die for!! 1 pt per chip. Which could be drastically reduced with the FF shredded cheddar. Havn't tried that yet.
I am a junk food junkie so anything I can make that resembles junk food and it low in points - I'm all over it!
Now.....my weigh-in is in 2 days.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me cause I'm 1.9lbs away from my 10% goal! That was my mini goal for the New Year.
