"Hungry Girl"

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I'm going to try these this weekend ... has any of my Spark friends made them before?

"HG Lord of the Onion rings"


1 large onion

1/4 cup original Egg Beaters**

1/2 cup crushed Fiber One

Black Pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut edges off onion, and remove outer layer. Cut onion into 1/2 inch wide slices, and separate into rings. Next, fill a small bowl (just large enough for onion rings to fit in) with Egg Beaters. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Pour crumbs onto a small dish. One by one, coat each ring in egg and then crumbs (give each ring a shake after the egg bath). Place on an oven-safe baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Cook for 20-25 minutes, flipping rings over about halfway through. Serves one!

"HG Hot boneless buffalo wings"

# 8 ounces raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 10 nuggets
# 1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
# 1 ounce Pringles Light Fat Free Barbeque Potato Crisps (or another fat-free BBQ-flavored potato chip), about 14 crisps
# 3 tablespoons Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
# Dash onion powder
# Dash garlic powder
# Dash cayenne pepper
# Dash black pepper
# Dash salt
Cooking Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a bread crumb-like consistency.

Crush potato crisps completely. In a small dish, mix crushed crisps with cereal crumbs. Add onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, black pepper, and salt, and mix well.

Place chicken pieces in a separate dish. Cover with Frank's RedHot and toss to coat.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Give each chicken piece a shake so it's not dripping with sauce, and then coat evenly with crumb mixture. Lay crumb-covered nuggets on the baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

Flip nuggets over and bake for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked throughout.

    The Onion Rings sound great -- what do you guys think of dipping them in low carb ketchup? It SO tastes like the real thing and I was shocked at how low the calories are!

    Fast food onion rings are usually sprinkled with seasoning salt (Lawry's). These recipes sound great!

    That sounds yummy...especially the onion rings! I might try those too! Do you eat them plain or dip them? I'm used to dipping them in Ranch....that would not be good for the waistline though, and I hate the fat free kind. Maybe I could eat them plain.

All or nothing

Thursday, February 10, 2011

So I tracked my food today, I completed my exercise and I'm on track to get in my 20 glasses ... While tracking my food I was really wanting a Corn Dog today ..I had the calories for it however It put me over on my sodium .. since I'm an all or nothing girl I decided that would not be a good thing for the arguing that goes on in my head!!! Instead I ate a waffle with 1T of peanut butter and now all my ranges are perfect. I feel good about my decision emoticon

  Great choices. I too eat a lot of peanut butter as substitutes for more fun choices. Keep up the good work.

    So although I should have been cleaning my house I was searching the web for good recipes when I came across a "Hungry Girl" recipe for Onion rings and Boneless hot wings.. .I think I'm going to try those this weekend! She has a bunch of Alcohol beverage on there too but, I'm just not to keen on Splenda and I don't like Soda and that is what most of them call for. I really need to find a lo Cal Cocktail!!!

"Why does it take 6 Weeks to lose 5 pounds, but only 1 day to gain it all back?"

Thursday, February 10, 2011

So here it is...I am an all or nothing girl. Either I'm doing it all ... all the time or I'm not doing any of it ... I know doing part is better then nothing maybe for maintaining but, if I want to lose 100 pounds this year I'm going to have to Exercise 6 days a week .. drink 20 glasses of water everyday and stay under 1500 calories THE END!

    You can do it Kristi. We are both all or nothing girls. We did this before and we can do it again! You are doing so fantastic with your exercise. I am envious of that. I have been very sporadic with mine, but my eating and tracking has been consistent. It will all come together for both of us and we'll be on a roll!

Both of us should figure out a way to cope with situations where we don't do 100%. We have to keep ourselves from giving up and giving in to splurges when we don't meet our goals. We should talk this weekend!

Ridiculous way of thinking

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I know what I'm about to say is silly but, it's the sugar and the pasta talking so keep that in mind emoticon For the last 3 weeks I have been doing my workouts 5 days a week and this week I added 20 glasses of water... I have been averaging about .2lbs a day so yesterday I decided to track food expecting to lose at least .3 this morning and again the scale said .2 emoticon. The problem with that is now when the pasta and sugar are calling my name it makes it harder to say NO! Deep down I know I have to be consistent for more weight to come off but, can I convince the voice's in my head? emoticon

    Think of it this way. You tracked and you still lost .2 lbs in a day. Sometimes results from the previous day don't show up on the scale so quickly. It might show the next day, or at the end of the week. It's cumulative, remember? You cannot blow it with pasta and sugar. You just can't! Hang in there Kristi, you have proven that you can get past this. Heck, you have that dang treadmill in your house. If you ever want to have pasta or sugar, tell yourself you have to do 10 minutes or 20 minutes on the treadmill before you can eat it. Or, call me! I will talk you out of it or at least distract you long enough to avoid it and get it off your mind.

Give the tracking a little more time to take effect. I think you will get excellent results if you do.

    Yep thats right emoticon and that's why I am "FAT"

    So let me get this straight. You are thinking that because you tracked your food and you did not see a bigger loss on the scale this morning, that you might as well eat pasta and sugar?

    Yes, that stuff can add up. It's good to track because it reminds you of stuff like that. It's all healthy stuff, but even too much healthy stuff can add calories and slow down your progress! Sounds like a very good, fiber filled lunch with healthy fats, etc. Yum! It's time for me to eat lunch now.

    Way to go Kristi! It's all coming together and I think you will see great results on Saturday when you weigh in! Give the food tracking a chance. Maybe once you get used to it a little more, you won't think of it so much. I only think about it when I'm hungry these days. As soon as I feel hungry, I start trying to remember what I planned for and what I could eat next. The rest of the time, I don't really think about it too much. Hang in there and give it a chance. You made it work for you before...I know you can do it again!

    Since I seem to have a few extra minutes today I think I am going to try logging all my food for the day! emoticon and see how that effects my weight in the morning. It was 2 weeks ago that I decided to eat that bowl of past and then binge the next day ... and it has taken me until today to get back to where I was so note to self NO PASTA!
