Back in Business


Okay, I’m done feeling sorry for myself.  With the help of good friends and a sweet and loving husband, I have bounced back.   I do realize there are an infinite number of things going on in the world that are far worse than gaining .2 lbs.  Also, I forgot to mention that the fries and the cupcake probably didn’t help last week either.  I’m just trying to figure out how to feel good, fit my ass into some 7 jeans and still have a little bit (make that a lot of fun).  Isn't that what life should be...fun? Not quite sure it’s possible.

After I was done pouting I went shopping at Bristol Farms, which is overpriced but everything just looks so damn good.  Plus, it's right next door to Weight Watchers.


This week’s shopping list (all items are organic):

Frozen berries
Lowfat vanilla yogut
Low fat chocolate soy milk
Coffee
Red fat  All natural peanut butter
2% milk
Medium ripe avocados
Seedless cucumbers
Bottled fat free salsa
Canola oil
Cilantro
Fat free egg substitute
Garlic cloves
Fresh ginger
1 lb. boneless sirloin steak
3 (12 inch) bamboo skewers
peaches
nectarines
tomato
basil
yellow cornmeal
5 5oz. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

I can't seem to get the math right, because I under-indulged and did not eat enough yesterday.  The numbers in parenthesis are the number of Weight Watchers Points. Here's what I did:

Workout: cardio tennis –one hour

Breakfast: Western egg white sandwich at Subway (4 pt. 229 calories), coffee (1)
Snack:  Melon (1)
Lunch:  Salad with Tuna tataki (3)
Dinner:  Made Weight Watchers Indonesian Satay (4) with salad, ¼ of a sweet potato (1) and broccoli (0)
Dessert- Made WW Cranberry raisin rice pudding (4)

Total: 18 points.  This is 8 points short of what I am supposed to eat.  I was uber-conscious of not eating too much.

Here are the Weight Watchers recipes.  Both came from the “In No Time” cookbook with recipes that take under 20 minutes.

INDONESIAN SATAY:
Serves 4, Prep: 5 min. Cook 5 min.
Ingredients:

¼ cup packed cilantro leaves (before using let leaves sit in bowl of water for 5 minutes to remove any sand)
2 garlic cloves quartered
2 tbls. Water
1 tbls. Minced peeled fresh ginger
2 tsp. Asian (dark) sesame oil
1 lb. boneless sirloin steak

  1. Place 4 (12 inch) bamboo skewers in a large glass of water and soak for 10 min. Spray broiler pan with nonstick spray and preheat broiler.
  1. Grind the cilantro, garlic, water, ginger and sesame oil in a mini food processor, a spice grinder or a blender until paste-like.  Working in a shallow bowl, rub the paste into the beef strips.
  1. Drain the skewers.  Thread the beef strips onto them, piercing each strip in at least two places so it will lie flat.
  1. Broil 5 inches from the heat, turning once until cooked through, about 6 min.  Serve warm or at room temp.
Per serving (1 skewer) 155 cals, 6 g fat, 2 g sat fat, 0 g. trans fat, 60 mg chol, 45 mg. Sod, 1 g. Carb, 0 g. Fib, 23 g. Prot, 9 mg Calc. WW POINTS-4


CRANBERRY RAISIN RICE PUDDING
Serves 6, Prep 10 min., cook 10 min.

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups cooked brown rice (I used leftover brown rice for the Chinese food we ordered)
1 ½ cups reduced fat (2%) milk
½ cup sugar
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ tsp almond extract
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Combine the rice, milk, sugar, raisins, and cranberries in a med. Saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil over high heat.  Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 min.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the almond extract and cinnamon.  Serve at once, let cool to room temp. or cover and refrigerate and serve cold.
Per serving (scant ½ cup)  202 cals, 2 g Fat, 1 g Sat Fat, 0 g. Trans Fat, 5 mg Chol, 213 mg Sod, 43 g Carb, 3g Fib, 4g Prot, 79 mg. Calc.  WW POINTS: 4
