And all before 1pm

Here's what I've been up to far
Right after breakfast I baked the chocolate cupcakes.

Then while the spaghetti squash was roasting I made the sauce. In this pan I have one can of organic diced tomatoes, grated garlic. diced onion, diced red pepper and diced leak. I'm just using the juice from the can of tomatoes no added oil. I did add a little salt, pepper and basil. In another pan I had the mild italian turkey sausage cooking.

This is the final result of my Spaghetti Squash a la moi. It's now broken down into individual servings and in the freezer. My calculations make it roughly 4-5 pts per serving. It's 4 but I'm adding some of the residual of the olive oil from the roasted squash to make it 5 pts.

Then I started the making the lasagna sauce. This is ground turkey, organic roasted garlic spaghetti sauce, grated broccoflower, diced onion and diced mushrooms with a little chipotle chili power, pepper and a little salt.


This is the end result I work this out to be 7pts per serving.

Then I finished off the cupcakes with a vanilla butter cream that I tinted with a wee bit of blue so they look light green in person. Hey Crave makes their Vanilla Buttercream blue I'd thought I'd give mine a little something. Now they're tucked into their carrier and ready to go to work tomorrow. All done by just past 12:30pm.

While this was all going on I also did my laundry and washed all the dishes that the above caused.
Still to come is a walk, not sure if it will be mega or maybe just a 5K but it's supposed to be +14 so I'm definitely going outide.

I did my Garmin/ Nike + test yesterday and it looks like my Nike + is off by .3K.
This was the result from yesterday.

Garmin: 444 calories , Time 1:13, Distance 7.3K , Pace 10:04-5:33 (average and best)
Nike +: 463 calories,  Time 1:13, Distance 7.67K, Pace  9:35 (average)

Interesting huh, I'll be recalibrating the Nike + and then in the next few days I'll do another test.

I also realized I got my dates mixed up. My hormone fueled snakapalooza week isn't this week it's next week so I still have one weigh in before that hits. I'd love to finish of my current 3 month journal being down 15lbs. Right now I'm averaging 1lb a week, not terrible but not as good as it could be.

Alright that's all I got for today, now I'm going to have some of that spaghetti squash and have a wee rest before I head out.

Hope your Sunday is fabulous.

Considering the Nike + sensor is pretty much a fancy pedometer, I think it's pretty accurate compared the Garmin. I've noticed if I am doing alot of hills that it is more "off" than just flats.
