Chicken of the Sea

Have you heard of the Weight Watchers Walk-It Challenge?  If you haven’t, it’s a 5k that is held on May 22 throughout the US.   Weight Watchers is challenging everyone to walk or run a 5k that day.  Since I didn’t run that 5k on my birthday, I am going to try and train for this one.  They have training guides for walkers or runners on their website.  Luckily for me they have a 5k scheduled here in Greenville!  I hope that you join me in this challenge and train for the walk or run on May 22nd!  I have my first training run planned for tomorrow after work.  I will be back tomorrow night to let you know how it goes.

 

I haven’t shared many recipes with you lately because I haven’t been cooking anything blog worthy.  Last week when I wasn’t feeling well I wanted something warm and comforting.  I came up with my own version of Tuna Noodle Casserole.  I tried to make it as light as possible.  It came in at 7 Points which is perfect for a dinner!  I hope you enjoy it!
