New Motivation!

God I just love this new job more and more! I have new motivation coming my way as I'm joining our office's BIGGEST LOSER CHALLENGE!

I go in tomorrow to get weighed...yes, I know its no weigh may but I feel like this challenge will be good for me. I'll have a starting point and KICK BUTT! You put in 20 dollars and every week there's a winner, who gets a 10 dollar giftcard to a local grocery store to help offset some of the healthy food they're buying!! There's also free nutritionist counseling if I want it...and I'm going to sign up! I CAN'T WAIT!

I think this is just what I need to get my butt moving. I have been doing really well with eating the last few days. I have been eating hummus and veggies, turkey pepperoni and whole grain crackers for a lunch with a 90 calorie special K bar for a midmorning snack. I finished up all my veggies so tomorrow I'm having a sandwich on light bread with 1 tbsp hummus as a spread ( TRY this in place of mayo, I use Sabra Roasted Garlic hummus PACKED with protein and fiber and half the fat of mayo), and 2 slices of thin turkey breast and 1oz of popchips. I also have special K chocolatey pretzel bar for snack. And tonight I am making pork chops, thin cut from a sparkpeople recipe that I'll share later on if its good! I'm serving this with some sweet potato fries, yum yum!

I feel great and I feel like I'm back on track!


  1. That's awesome! Great motivation for you, good luck!!
    Kudos on the good eats, you are doing great <3

  2. I'd join that challenge, that sounds like fun! I can't do hummus... because I'll eat the whole tub. Bizarre, I know. But that roasted red pepper hummus? *drool*

  3. So glad you're enjoying your new job and good luck with the Challenge.
    I love hummus and another good thing to use in place of mayo is Tzadziki, it's made from Greek yogurt. It's right next to the hummus in my grocery store.
