Day 7

Disappointed today as there is no Zumba class tonight.  Our instructor had to cancel it.  So I will definitely have to do something this evening at home.  There are numerous things on YouTube that I have found that I like.  I think it is probably even possible to share the link on here ….  Let’s see if I can figure that out!

This evening we are having Chicken Caesar Wraps.  The original recipe calls for using 12″ Flour Tortillas.  Instead I use Flatout Bread.  The ones I have in the freezer right now are Flatout Multi-Grain with Flax.  These are not available in Canada but whenever we take a trip to the States I buy some.  This particular one has 100 calories per bread and 8g Fibre.  This makes quite a difference to the recipe because a standard 12″ flour tortilla has 270 calories and only 1g Fibre.

Flatout Bread

My morning started off with some of the Protein Pancakes which I love.  They are so filling, and keep my tummy satisfied all morning!  Today I had them with a sliced banana and a little of the E D Smith No Sugar Syrup. (5 Points+)

Nothing much to report for lunch time, repeat day again for me.  2 Taco Egg Muffins, tossed salad, baby carrots and some roasted garlic hummus (6 Points+)

I stayed at work a little later today, so when I got in I was able to quickly fix the Chicken Caesar Wraps and some soup.  I usually try to avoid a lot of ready prepared food, but these soups are pretty good.  I bought them in Costco in a case of 10 soups – 5 Creamy Tomato Bisque and 5 Hearty Minestrone with Penne.  The hubby had tomato and I had the Minestrone.  I just went to look on their website for some info.  On the can it says “new” and they are obviously so new they haven’t even got anything about them yet.  Anyway they work out to 5 Points+ for the can, there are nice big pieces of penne, chunky vegetables and kidney beans.  The soup and the wrap was a nice little meal.

With no zumba I decided I ought to do something physical.  So I did 30 mins of Zumba.  The trouble with exercising at home, is that I never normally keep it up for as long as I do when I attend a class.  My class is usually 60 minutes, but at least I did something!

For a nice creamy lower calorie option, I like to use Renee’s 1/2 Fat Caesar Dressing.  I like it because you buy it in the chilled section, which somehow seems healthier!!!!!!
