Today was fan-stinking-tastic!!!
This morning I woke up and had me some coffee with FF half and half and splenda while getting ready for work.
Then at work I had a protein shake. My last one actually, and I probably wont buy these again. They taste good but I dont think they aided in helping me very much and they are expensive.
It kept me pretty full though.
At lunch I had a sandwich with chicken deli meat, baked 100 cal cheetos, a cheese stick and a tangerine.
349 calories plus a bit of mustard
I think peeling the tangerine and eating it cold ensures I actually consume it. :)
Then I got a bit hungry and had a 100 cal pretzel pack later.
And finally I was sooo tired I went to the gas station and got a coffee with french vanilla creamer (no idea how many cals, prob like 40) and drank about half of it.
I also got a little junior mint on the side 43 cals
Then I went to the gym and ran! Also did the elliptical some.
My bestie got me a Bic Band for Christmas and I freaking love it!!!
The thing DOES NOT MOVE.
The thing DOES NOT MOVE.
LOVE I TELL YOU LOVE!!!!!
Plus its pretty and sparkly.
Then I came home and made a recipe I havent had in a while but I LOVE it!
Ashley's Vegetable Beef soup
Ashley is my cousin and a great friend of mine, I am so proud of her, I think she has almost lost 30 lbs as well!! She and I have been on a weight loss journey and she really inspires me and we always keep each other up to date on the goodies we have found or made!
She told me I can share this recipe with you! Now...I tweaked it a bit and I will explain the changes.
It makes a TON of soup. 18 servings at 98 calories (her way) and 107 calories (my way).
1/2 lb of lean ground beef
3 cans green beans
2 cans carrots ( i used 2 extra cans mixed vegs)
2 cans of corn
2 cans of mixed veggies
Cayenne pepper (I used about a half cup of franks red hot bc i didnt have cayenne)
salt n peppa
one jug tomato juice
All you do is brown the beef, add in onions and garlic (I used 2 tsp garlic) in a big pot.
Then you basically drain all the canned veggies and throw everything in the pot, including the seasonings.
I let mine come to a boil and then put a lid on it and let it simmer. Watch the pot though as you bring it to a boil because you dont want it to spill over.
Hubs put cheese on top of his!
We had grilled cheeses on the side with this AMAZING cheese we got from costco.
I put brummel and brown on both sides of the bread and a slice of cheddar with like about a half a slice of monterrey jack.
It was sooo melty good!!
I had three servings of soup yall!!! So filling!!
Also I forgot to count cals for the brummel and brown but it was about 45 cals for a tbsp.
I still had calories left and a bit of a sweet tooth so sitting down to blog I had four of these babies...
It was a seriously great day yall :)
SO happy to report something good to yall!!!
Have a great night loves!!
