I often start living a healthy lifestyle and within weeks I'm back to my old habits. I refuse to go through another summer where I don't feel good about myself in a swim suit. More importantly, I want to feel good. I don't want to damage my body eating food that is not beneficial in anyway. Excited for the future and the help of the SP family.

Hi there...I saw your post in what's for dinner tonight in the Spark cafe.

Do you own a crockpot? I have a few...and I love them!

Anyway, if you do have a crockpot, you should try 3 envelope chicken.

What you'll need:

***1 pound chicken (skinless, boneless breasts/thighs/tenders - whatever you prefer)
***1 packet dry chicken gravy
***1 packet dry alfredo sauce
***1 packet either dry ranch dressing or dry italian dressing (I use the dry ranch)
***1 cup water

Add everything to the crockpot in the morning, cook on low all day (for at least 8 hours). I also add little potatoes at the beginning so they cook in the juices and get nice and tender. But you can serve over rice if you prefer. I also sometimes will add frozen brocolli towards the end (about an hour before you're ready to eat).

I haven't done the nutritional break down, but I don't think it's that high in calories or fat and it's very yummy and doesn't take much effort. =]

I have quite a few crockpot (and regular) recipes if you ever want any more ideas...

Congrats on your (more than) 10lb weight loss so far! My current weight/starting number is the same as yours was, and we have the same goal. Hopefully I can stick up to my goals and meet you at the end ! :)

I LOVE LOVED LOVED Kettle Bells. I felt like my whole body was worked. I used the lightest weights so I could get the movements down but today I am very sore. I think I will continue with this because it is like a fun way to lift, and I am awful at lifting continuously. Tell me how you like it if you try it, I definitely think it depends on how good your instructor is too.
