Moving on now, we had a wonderful golf/camping trip at Pechanga Resort in Temecula, California this past weekend. It was our first time camping there and my husband and son LOVED the golf course. Challenging, but loved it. My hubby shot a 91/93 and my son, Justin shot a 97/98. (yeah I am trying to get this whole golf lingo down, I moved from a Dance Mom for 10 years to now a Golf Mom and you can't even cheer at a golf tournament, you have to BE QUIET. UM, this is going to be sooo hard)
I was really good with my food for the most part I had 2 protein shakes a day (meal replacement shakes). We did do 2 dinners out, which probably didn't help my weight loss, but I did walk at least 2 to 4 miles each day while we were camping. Fast walking and it felt GREAT. It was better then just sitting around like we usually do, it felt really good getting out and walk. My cousin, her husband and my aunt also came out to visit and since she is ready to pop, we just hung out with them at the casino and enjoyed lunch and an awesome dinner at the Italian restaurant inside Pechanga, I would highly recommend it (and FAR better then the buffet they serve there).
Here are some of my snacks and meals that I had for the rest of the week. I am getting pretty creative with eating vegetables and fruits more often and with drinking the protein shakes everyday, I have been meeting my protein levels more often too.

Photo 2: My cousin Jeff joined me on this Biggest Loser Challenge and he is a large boy (over 300 lbs), he likes to cook chicken breast at the beginning of the week and then he puts them in baggies and eats one everyday for lunch. This was such an awesome idea, I plan on doing this very soon too and getting in some more protein into my diet. I am happy to report my little cousin (yea, he is younger then me) lost 11 lbs this week. WAY TO GO JEFF!!!
Photo 3: Lunch Time cucumber, chicken, carrots and tomatoes. Simple, easy and yummy!
I also made an AWESOME recipe, that I was so proud of and it was both quick and delicious. I am not a good "healthy cook" and so for me to come across and make a delicious healthy recipe, made me very happy. Here is my new favorite veggie side dish Tomato and Avocado Salad. I have created a few more fun items that I plan on sharing with you all very soon.
TOTAL loss for this challenge < 3.4 > lbs
