Weekend Recap

Well I haven't blogged in almost a week, I feel like I have nothing interesting to say! But I do want to make this a habit, so my goal is to blog 3 times during the week.  Even if no-one is reading it I think it is good for me.

As always I do great eating & exercising Monday through Friday but then the weekend comes and all hell breaks loose.  So of course that happened this weekend. 

I did make a yummy Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Chicken. I can't remember where I found the recipe, but this is what I followed. I'm sure this might be common sense to some, but I need a recipe for everything!

Ingredients:
3 oz. (about 1 cup) uncooked high-fiber rotini pasta
1/2 cup chopped zucchini
1/2 cup chopped red onion
4 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup roasted red peppers packed in water, drained and chopped
3 tbsp. reduced-fat feta cheese
2 tbsp. sliced black olives
1/4 cup fat-free Italian dressing

Directions:
Cook pasta in a medium pot per package instructions, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook zucchini and red onion until softened, about 6 minutes. Transfer to the large bowl with the pasta, and let cool.
Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour

Finished Product :)
 Well tomorrow is another weigh-in and I really don't want to let my team down, so hopefully the number is at least less then last week.  It is that TOM so I'm definitely not expecting miracles, but we shall see. 

My goals for this week are to do some form of exercise every day with one rest day & log.every.bite that goes in my mouth.

Have a good day :)
