New favorite salad

Pre-mix baby greens
Litehouse Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette
Feta cheese - crumbled
Thin sliced red onion
Walnut pieces

Toss greens with dressing, top with cheese, onion, and walnuts.

After a week in Orlando and the week after, I ballooned back up to 205. Did South Beach last week and again this week to get caught up. Though this salad dressing is a bit high in sugar(4 g versus the recommended 3 g), I'm willing to take it in exchange for the flavor. Will return to regularly scheduled "lifestyle change" in two pounds.

Currently busting my rear at the gym. My latest favorite weight machines are the inner and outer thigh. Will look great in jeans in no time. Also, doing plenty of hanging leg lifts with the four pound ball - I'm up to 5 sets of 10. Have been mixing up my cardio as well - adding in 20 minutes of the Precor EFX in addition to whatever I do on the elliptical or treadmill. That, my friends is one nasty machine. Cardio, weights, more cardio - all four times a week - I'll be back on track in no time...

That dressing is awesome! They have another fruit one...I think huckleberry that is pretty good, too.

i'm starting to hate you. realized this morning that the pants i bought in september that fit perfectly are starting to get snug. realized long before this morning that i am a binge eater, have no desire to eat anything food network wouldn't dedicate a week to, and consider sitting on the couch sucking down soco and cigarettes while watching "scrubs" reruns my "workout."

please help me.

Right there with you on the "needing to get back on the bandwagon" thing. Noticed yesterday that 2 pounds have crept back on so it's a good thing that I finally can get back on the treadmill (although no running quite yet). Also cutting back on portions, trying to make better choices too.

T Marzetti makes a really good low-cal balsamic vinagrette too that I adore. I used to make myself mixed green salads with Granny Smith apples, raisins, and some of that. Maybe a little rotisserie chicken thrown on for protein. YUM.
