I know I’ve gushed about my Weight Watchers meeting before, but I just cannot express how much the meetings help me. It makes every week a fresh start, but it’s more than that. It’s an opportunity to vent my frustrations, to share motivation and to celebrate little accomplishments that add up to big success.
This week, I tracked my food and exercised, and I showed a 3.2 pound loss, and I’m determined to show another good loss next week.
Wednesday night, I felt like snacking so I tried something new – roasted spinach chips. And it was fantastic! Here’s what I did…
I placed 5 cups of spinach in a zip-loc bag with a teaspoon of olive oil and a little dash of salt and shook it up. After the spinach was coated, I placed it on a cookie sheet and baked it on 300 degrees for about 15 minutes. The spinach seemed soggy as I used the spatula to remove it from the pan, but it got crispy pretty quickly. And it was delicious so I made it again last night. Next time, I’ll make it without salt.
I forgot to take pictures the first time I made them, and now I can’t find my card reader so I borrowed a photo from cooking-books.blogspot.com though I didn’t use that recipe. And honestly, this picture is prettier than mine anyway. =) Now i’m excited to roast kale and baby bok choy and other leafy greens too!
My workout schedule has been crazy this week so I plan to exercise much earlier today. There were a couple of days in this week in which I didn’t exercise until midnight. And while I’m glad that I got it done, I know that I need to get it done earlier so I can rest better when I sleep.
How’s your week going? Are you working out? Eating well? Do you need encouragement? What’s new?
