Holy Moly Weigh in Wednesday!!!

Well as we all know...I kind of had a bad weigh in last week. And I was kind of upset about it...but the one thing that I said to myself is that I am not going to let a few potholes in the road ruin my trip. :D

So I was pretty good this week. I ate on plan 95% of the time except that one wierd Sunday where I ended up making some pretty bad choices. Probably because my period is back again...yes, again. I had it for a solid 2 months, then it went away...and now it's back with a venegence. I feel like utter crap...and I really should go to the doctor...but as many of you know, nurses are the worst patients in the world. I already know what's wrong with me...why do I need to pay an expensive copay for them to tell me the same thing? Bleh. If it stays this bad, I will go. Otherwise, I'll live. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger???

So... now the results of my weigh in...

I LOST 4.2 POUNDS!!! That brings me to 283 even! WOW! Down a total of 27 pounds...and I feel fantastic (other than the cramps and bloating and general PMS). I'm very happy and excited!

In other news, the new food came into Jenny Craig today and I am a sucker for trying new things. This morning I had the apple cinnoman waffles and sausage! It was VERY good! I decided though it needs more cinnamon, so when I make it next time (I ordered 3) I am going to add some myself. The apples are very tender and delicious, the sausage actually tasted really good to me too! Like I said, I am a total sucker for all things Fall. Apples, pumpkins, the crisp smell of leaves, WAHOO!

So for today's recipe I decided to share my delicious low fat/calorie version of one of my favorite fall treats!

Apple Crisp
Makes: 8 Servings


    3 medium granny smith apples (or other tart, firm apple)
    1 tsp cinnamon
    2 Tbsp Splenda for Baking
    2 Tbsp all purpose flour

    1 cup quick cooking oats
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
    2 Tbsp unsalted butter


1. Preheat oven to 325. Combine apples, cinnamon, splenda and all purpose flour. Spread mixture into a 9x9 baking dish.

2. In a small bowl mix topping ingredients, mixing with a fork until crumbly. It is okay if there are bits of butter left visible, that's okay, they will melt!

3. Bake approximately 25-30 minutes until top is browned and apples are soft.
