Snow again

Nothing new. Work craziness. Car is still making noises. And it snowed again this morning. I don't mind these little dusting of snow. As long as we don't a big boat load I'm okay with it. Did I mention I hate shoveling? LOL.

BFL, both eating and workouts, are going well so far this week. I just hope I didn't jinx myself by saying that. ;)

I planned well this weekend in terms of my meals - cooked my meals this Sunday so I am set. I made EFL Beef Stew, Turkey Tacos, and EFL Pumpkin Cheesecake! All so yummy!

The Turkey Tacos was really simple. I just sauteed some red onions, browned some ground turkey, added taco mix according to the package directions, and that's it! I portioned it into individual containers, added some LF cheese on top, and it's ready to take to work for lunch. I eat it with some lettuce (already sliced and pre-washed) and 2 taco shells. I microwave the meat a little bit before eating, of course. The only thing is I can't find taco shells without the trans fat! However according to the package, one serving is 3 shells and has only 2.5 g trans fat and a total of 150 calories. Since I only eat 2 at a time, it's not so bad. I wish the taco shell manufacturers would get with the program and start making the 0 g trans fat version, LOL.

Okay, here's my workout for today:

AM: Treadmill (~3.3 miles running @ 5.8-6.2 mph w/ 1% incline (~33 min) + 7 min walking), Abs (3 x 1 min planks), Leg Strengthening Exercises


Katiefeldmom - To answer your question on yesterday's HIIT, I did it at the following levels: 5, 5, (6, 7, 8, 9) seven times, 10, 5. Total 32 minutes. So it's sort of an extended version of the traditional 20 min BFL HIIT. I wanted to do 30 minutes HIIT at least and the BFL pattern just worked out this way. It was sort of punishment for slacking off this weekend. :o)

Hope that answers your question...

I want some snow. All we keep getting here in Missouri is ice.:( Glad to hear that BFL is going great for you. I've been making tacos with ground turkey, but I use the whole wheat soft shells. I like the hard ones better, but like you I can't find any good ones. Keep going strong!!

We've been getting some snow here as well. Not tons, but enough to slow you down just a little. It's supposed to be in the 20's today.

Great job on the workouts and the eating. You're doing terrific!

You can have ALL of our snow...although I think today and tomorrow with the warmer temps, it is going to melt most of it.

To answer your question on my blog. You have to go to www.danecook.com and see some of his videos, or search him on www.youtube.com He's so funny, and not so bad to look at either. :)

Doesn't shoveling count as UBW? ;)
