Healthy Habits for Life

Healthy Habits for Life - meeting #3 went well. I'm down 1.4 lbs! Had a not-so-good week...bad over the weekend but kept my exercise up so that was good. Gotta keep walking and I need to add weights to my routine. Need to look into newer, more up-beat music.

Last Week's Challenge: do MORE 3 x a week.
Weekly Challenge: Try a new recipe! That'll be a piece of cake...hehehe, no pun intended!

Weigh-in: 156.2 (7.28.09)

Healthy Habits for Life

Healthy Habits for Life - meeting #2 went well. I'm down 3.4 lbs! (mom is down 2.? lbs!) Gotta step up the walking a little bit...small steps = success. If I change things a little at a time I think that will help my progress.

Last Week's Challenge: No soft drinks
Weekly Challenge: do MORE 3 x a week.

Weigh-in: 157.6 (7.21.09)

Healthy Habits for Life

A personal journey for Jenny:

Healthy Habits For Life...our first meeting was this evening. We ended up with 70 members which is insane!! It was very encouraging... ready to make some changes... I hope I don't get too radical with this but I'm sure Dan will keep me in check. :)

Starting weight: 161 lbs. (7.14.09)

White Castle-like Sliders

1/2 cup dried onion flakes
2 pounds ground chuck- 80/20 ground beef
1/2 t. seasoned salt
6 slices cheddar cheese
24 dinner rolls
24 dill pickle slices

Evenly spread the onions on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Gently press the ground beef on top of the onion flakes. Press evenly making one giant pattie. Sprinkle with seasoned salt. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Using a paper towel, pat the excess grease from the top of the pattie. Top with cheddar cheese, return to oven for 2 more minutes. Remove
from oven, let set 5 minutes then cut into 24 patties. Slice open and separate each party roll. Place bottom of rolls on a large platter. Using a spatula lift pattie with onion layer onto each bun bottom. Top each slider with a pickle slice then the bun lid. Serve immediately. Makes 24 Sliders.
