Winner Winner...Chicken Dinner!!

First things first, weigh-in results...5.6 pounds down! 5.6 pounds forever REMOVED!
At this week's WW meeting, we discussed MOVING MORE! In a nutshell, the leader stated that members must make exercise a priority and a good fit with our lifestyle. From my personal experience, I generally choose physical activity that I like AND also gets me excited, which in turn led to my self diagnosed condition of Physical Activity A.D.D. (P.A.A.D.D for short). I generally tend to purchase workout "stuff" and quickly lose interest.

As a sufferer of P.A.A.D.D., that means I own many many pieces of exercise equipment and products which I found alternate uses for: DVDs now serve as coasters for drinking glasses or as a writing surface, my Reebok Step doubles as a stepping stool to reach food I hide from myself way up high in the pantry, and let me not forget my weights that also make great doorstops. I gotta get my moneys worth!

At this week's meeting I learned something new and received some shocking news. Well, I learned that I must earn between 7-14 points a week in order to lose weight. I earn about 3 points a day with a 3 mile jog/walk. So, for the shocking new...after I reach my goal, I must earn at least 28 points a week to maintain my goal weight...28 points...good lawd!

At the end of the meeting, the leader challenged everyone to add 10 minutes to our workout routine, and for those who have yet to start moving, start out with 10 minutes of activity a day. Now I challenge you! Keep it moving y'all!

So, on to the winner of my first
giveaway...drum roll please! And the winner of the Progresso soup giveaway is...
Amy from Amy's Assorted Adventures!

The scientifical (not a real word) method of selecting a winner...
I decided to use to choose a random umber based on the number of comments received.

Number of comments...268

So into the number generator I plugged in the necessary information...


On to other news...
In keeping with my goal to try at least 3 new recipes a week, I concocted a couple of culinary creations last week. Feast your eyes on this:

Eggster Sliders

Well of course I used my Redi-Set-Go to make my eggsters. I think I cook just about everything in my investment my Mom EVER EVER!!!

I gave up turkey bacon a while back UNTIL...until found Butterball's Low Sodium Turkey Bacon for an amazing 1 pt. for two slices.

2 of these bad boys...4 points!!! Oh, my Mom found these mini buns at Wal-Mart. The only downside, Wal-Mart only sell them in wheat.

Next, I made my In-A-Hurry-Curry-Chicken Wrap...
I found these kid sized flat out wraps at H-E-B.

Well, of course I cooked the ingredients in my Redi Set Go! I used some left over rotisserie chicken my Mom made. I found these mixed peppers and onions in the freezer section at H-E-B.
