Week 2 is officially over, and I nailed it again! Tracked all the food, got all the exercise, beat the bad habit, embraced the new, and completed my weekly challenge!
This week's challenge was to remake a recipe so that it's healthier or fits your preferred diet. I opted to remake buffalo chicken dip. I loooooove everything buffalo chicken, particularly the dips that are loaded with cream cheese and shredded cheese and all that good stuff. But it's not exactly low calorie. My go-to buffalo chicken dip is just buffalo sauce, chicken, and a block of cream cheese. It's not terrible, but I decided to swap the cream cheese with plain Greek yogurt. You really can't tell the difference! (Unless you're my mom, who swears she can taste everything.) It's about 60 calories for 1/4 cup. If you swap chips for carrots, celery, red pepper, or whatever you like, you're even healthier!
I did struggle with eating this week; I think it was the week before my period (I have an IUD, so no menstruation and thus I'm not really sure if it was or not). I just wanted junk food. I still made pretty good choices, except last night, where I ate donuts for dinner because I'm not perfect and I'm also lazy. Ha! We're back in the saddle this week though.
Exercise was good. Lots of walking on Saturday for the monthly Pokemon Go Community Day, and we went to the zoo on Sunday. Thursday was going to be my rest day, but I ended up taking a walk around the neighborhood with my son and his school friend, so I took Friday off instead. For kindergarten graduation, we got him a bicycle (with pedals, oh my!), so I foresee a lot of biking in my future.
Until next time!
