Getting Healthy

This page is devoted to tracking my weight, posting recipes I like, and other health/diet related stuff.

1/25 – 2/15 = +1 pound (current weight 233.8). Yeah, haven’t really been to great about tracking…

1/18/2015 – 1/24/2015 = -3 pounds (current weight 232.8)

1/25/2015 – I’ve now been on WeightWatchers for 3 weeks and have lost 5.2 pounds.  This past week I made some changes to my eating routine and lost 3 pounds, which I’m pretty happy with.

We made this Parika Chicken with Sour Cream Gravy (Low Carb and Gluten Free) recipe from http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2014/01/easy-chicken-paprika-w-sour-cream-gravy-low-carb-gluten-free.html.  This site has some awesome recipes, you should check it out.

I do substitute chicken breast for the chicken thighs and use whatever Paprika is available, but it’s been great each time.  And I’m not a great cook, I only go for recipes that are simple (not too many ingredients) and easy to follow.  This recipe really suits me.  The only points come from the chicken (3 ounces = 3 points) and the sour cream (3 points if you eat ALL the gravy yourself).

Another staple in my diet is the fruit smoothie (3 points) that I have for breakfast every morning along with a high-fiber blueberry muffin (2 points) from Trader Joe’s.  The smoothie is super easy and fast to make and gets me 3 of my daily fruits along with a dairy.

One serving:

1/2 cup Kefir (Trader Joe’s)

1/2 cup Goat’s Milk Yogurt (I like this because it’s milder than other yogurts.  Found at Trader Joe’s.)

1 cup frozen cherries

1/2 a banana

1/8 cup skim milk
