Yep, I made it to the gym yesterday and it felt so good. I hate all of the time and energy it takes to get myself and the kids around and the bags packed to go but once I am there I love it. It is so nice to have a little break and do something for myself.
The best part is that when I pick my girls up from the gym's child care they don't want to go home. My four year old says "Mommy, I don't want to go yet" and the baby doesn't even notice that I returned. Some parents may be saddened by this but to tell you the truth it makes me so happy to know that my girls are having fun when I am gone.
The end result:
50 minutes on the elliptical
Off to the gym again today!
Last night for dinner I didn't feel like cooking because my husband wasn't home so I found a frozen meal to eat. Let me first say that I don't usually keep individual meals in my freezer because of the price and I don't usually like them. But about two weeks ago I got a coupon for a free Kashi frozen entree. I picked it up at the grocery store last week and decided to eat it last night. The one I choose was Sweet and Sour Chicken. It had chicken breast with sweet and sour sauce, roasted green beans and yellow peppers with edamane and Kashi 7 whole grains and Sesame Pilaf.
To be honest when I was done microwaving I was grossed out. It looked like a plate full of weird looking grains. I figured I would at least taste it before I threw it in the garbage. I am so glad I did because it was wonderful. So don't let the look of it scare you away. I guess I am not used to eating lots of grains like that so it looked odd at first. The flavor was awesome! I am graving one right now.
I usually hate frozen meals because the chicken is usually chewy and they never fill me up. That is if I like the taste enough to finish it. Yeah, I'm kind of picky about my frozen meals. This one filled me up like no frozen meal has ever before. I ate it for dinner and I was full for the rest of the night. The nutrition info is 320 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 6 grams of fiber. That's a 6 Point dinner!
This meal is definitely something that I want to purchase again. I think they were on sale at my local store for $3.19 so I am going to check at Walmart to see how much they cost their. I don't think $3.19 is bad for a frozen dinner that I enjoy. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't eat it every night because the price could add up but I will definitely use it as a treat when I don't feel like cooking.
What's your favorite frozen meal?
