Y'all, mark this date down in history.. there are TWO vegetables on my plate! I know this has never happened before! And I cooked an actual meal tonight - it was so good! And my whole plate was only 6sp! I tried a new-to-me recipe - @drizzlemeskinny Garlic Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Chicken - though I subbed non-fat Greek yogurt for cream cheese - which made it 6sp instead of 8! I made some #delicatasquash seasoned with garlic pepper this time and not over cooked - and it was incredible - I'm officially obsessed. And of course I added my signature green beans. Super satisfied right now and super proud of myself for making this dinner (I'm not much of an actual cook). @weightwatchers is changing me!
I kicked butt today! I hit the gym, meal prepped, then got to work ripping up carpet and staples! I worked for several hours and got a whole boatload of steps in! Feeling good about my activity today! 👣👷🏼♀️💪
