on to week two

Well, this past week I managed to exercise 5 out of 7 days...which is quite an accomplishment in it's self. Brent even joined me two nights--which is a lot considering his crazy schedule.

My "weeks" officially end on Mondays, but I thought I'd get a head start on planning for next week.

Here's what we'll be eating this coming week:

Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin (6 points/serving; 6 servings)

I've made this before--it's delicious. We will make sandwiches from the left overs a couple of times and maybe even make a "fancy" quesadilla.

No need to alter the recipe any...pair with veggies of your choice!

La Scala's Chopped Salad--Made Skinny (7 points/serving; 4 main course servings)

I've never made this...but it looks really good (and EASY). I don't like garbanzo beans or I won't be putting those in mine!

I'll also probably half this recipe as there is no such thing as a good leftover salad....

Pineapple Chicken Salad Pitas (8 points/serving for chicken salad only or 10 points with pita; 4 servings)

I will be subbing pecans for almonds...which is how I calculated the points. I hope this is as good as I imagine it to be. 

Today I'll be starting "Week 2" of the Beginner's Running Plan

Good luck this week!


  1. I want to try of these! Good for you! We must have similar taste. Maybe that's why we are both on WW. Hmmm. I'm making some chocolate cookies this week that are really yummy and the main ingredient is avocado. It's surprising! I'm not sure about the Points+ b/c I'm not "officially" on WW anymore, but if you're interested, I can send you the recipe and you can put it in. Let me know!

  2. I made the Pork Tenderloin tonight and it was a huge hit! I'm going to make the potato soup later this week!

  3. Looks great! I really want to try that pineapple pita thing!!
