Weekly Update - 9/16

Hey guys -

Checking in! I had a big loss this week that I am very happy about. It brought me down into the 160's, which I haven't seen since high school. It was my final week of my BodyFX 60 Day Challenge. I will post final results and before and after photos later this week...but for now here is a teaser! So bittersweet that the challenge is over, but this is just the beginning for me! I am hosting my own challenge starting next Monday with a great group of people.

So I added a new snack to the rotation this week. Mainly because I was craving pumpkin and something sweet. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am obsessed with anything pumpkin. So I whipped up these bad boys during food prep this week. Ate two of them today, and let me just tell die for! They taste like pumpkin oatmeal cookie dough. No lie!

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Delish-Balls
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 packets Justins All Natural Peanut Butter
1 TBSP pumpkin pie spice
1/2 TBSP cinnamon
5-10 drops vanilla stevia
Mix all ingredients together, roll into balls, put on wax paper and stick in the fridge for about 15 minutes. I then took mine off the paper and put in a Tupperware then back into the fridge. So good!
This weeks meal prep & menu
I am pretty excited about this weeks menu! I picked up 3 new things at Sprouts that I have been wanting to try! Chia seeds, sprouted bread (has 5 grams of protein per slice) and spaghetti squash! I will be using the bread as a "treat" once a week, adding the chia seeds to my overnight oats this week and using the squash for spaghetti.
