The Wednesday Weigh-ins begin again. I succumbed to my fitness enemy (sleep) yet again and gained even more weight due to holiday goodies. And start this year out at 169.5 lbs.

But, a congratulations to those who stuck to their fitness goals during the delicious holidays. My sister Nellie and both of my parents! My parents have each lost 16 pounds in the past few months. HOLY COW! That is amazing!

I mentioned the myfitnesspal app that my family uses previously but I would now like to invite you all to download it or join online (FREE). If you want to add me to your support group then comment and I will contact you!

Now for an awesome recipe courtesy of Mr. Sam.

Rissoto Wraps

1 lb Ground Chicken
Fajita Mix Packet
1 Cup Rissoto
4 Cups Turkey/Chicken Stock
1 small onion
1/2 Cup chopped peppers (I buy a bunch on sale, chop them and keep in the freezer for quick adds to recipes)
2 Tbs oil
Romaine Leaves
*Opt, Water Chestnuts for extra crunch

1- Brown chicken in fajita mix packet in frying pan. Depending on how spicy you want it, do 1/2 - 3/4 of the packet. the whole packet is too powerful. 
2- In separate pot, sauté onion and peppers in oil.
3- Add risotto to vegetables and coat with remaining oil.
4- Cook risotto according to directions (add liquid as you go)
5-Combine, mix well.
6- Wash and dry Romaine.
7- Enjoy!!!

It will make about 20 wraps. And each lettuce leaf worth is about 103 calories! Yeah for low cal, delish food!
 ***We did this as a Chopped adventure. Mr. Sam did it all himself. And I am ADDICTED!
