French Un-Fried Potatoes!

First things first, weigh-in.

163lbs, -1 lb loss this week.

I will take it! At this point in my journey every pound feels like a huge victory. I've been stuck in the 163-168 yo-yo for months. I'm going to break out of it this time. I am 4lbs away from a true 50lb loss. I am going to make it there. Before my 30th birthday which is March 31st. You heard it here first folks. That's my goal.

Last night I didn't feel like Chinese Chicken. So I opted for a Boca Bruschetta Veggie Patty and some home made fries. Everyone has their own recipe for home fries, here is mine:

1 large baking potato cut into strips
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
1 Tbsp of Seasoning, whatever you like, I used Mrs.Dash Garlic and Herb tonight

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, lay fries in a single layer, spray with cooking spray, sprinkle with seasoning cook for 35-40 minutes until crisp, shaking tray every 10 minutes to make sure all sides brown. Easy, healthy, oven crisp fries.

Meals for next week!

Meatless Monday (on Monday!) - Roasted Bell Pepper Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese
Tuesday - Slow Cooked Pinto Chicken with Corn & Quinoa
Wednesday - Italian Sausage and Pepper Pasta
Thursday - Chicken Souvlaki Pitas
Friday - Greek Lemon Fish with Quinoa

As always, I may or may not follow the recipes exactly and I will share my favorite ones of the week!

I don't have any weekend plans to speak of. I'm looking forward to some relaxing. Tomorrow is my "Rest" day from training and I have another 4 mile training run on Sunday and I'm actually looking forward to it. I was nervous about my last 4 mile run, but now that I know I can do it, I hope to just run and enjoy this one.

As always, I probably won't be around much during the weekend unless I have something I just can't wait until Monday to share!

Are you guys doing anything fun this weekend? What are your plans? Happy Friday!
