P90X- Week 1 Day 6


Kenpo X is a form of kickboxing and that was yesterdays workout. I’ve always liked kickboxing, a few years back I use to take a class at night and it really worked you out hard.

Yesterday hubby and I took our kids to a indoor swimming pool and swan and splashed around for 2 hours then it was dinner time and I had nothing prepared.   We rarely do take out but on the off chance we try and make it healthy in some ways.  We tried  something new.  There’s this new grocery store that just opened up and they have this great food counter and they even make pizza.  Everyone picked what they wanted, hubby and son had pizza, daughter had sushi and potato salad but didn’t like it.
I had roasted chicken breast, chicken fillet, roasted peppers and rapini.

I have to say my dinner was the best out of them all.
I’m so happy with my food choices, I did really good today.

Family Take-Out Dinner


Roasted Chicken & Veggies

Thai Chicken Salad


Thai Chicken Ingredients



Cooked Sliced Chicken

Thai Chicken Salad


Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts, cooked, sliced
2 green onions, chopped
1 bag coleslaw
1/2 bag bean sprouts
1-2 tsp sesame oil
4 Tbsp sweet chili sauce


Preparation:

I boiled the chicken and then sliced it once it cooled. You could buy a rotisserie chicken and remove the chicken for a really quick meal on the go.
Combine chicken with sweet chili sauce and refrigerate for one hour.
In a large bowl combine all the ingredients with the chicken and serve.

It’s a perfect meal on a hot summer day

My Weekly Low Carb Menu~April 12, 2010


This is the template that I print out and write out my menu for the week.  It’s up on my fridge as we speak.  It’s a huge relief waking up knowing that my dinner is planned ahead of time.  Then comes the task of preparing it.

I’ve been asked what I have for breakfast and lunch so here’s just a few ideas.

Breakfast:
I usually have 1 of my homemade low carb muffins & coffee
1 pc Brancrisp bread with almond butter and sugar free jam
Ricotta and blueberries

    Lunch:
    I always have a protein (beef patty, chicken breast) & a salad on the side.

    Happy Low Carbing!!
