I'm going to fat camp!

Yay! I wonder if it will be a camp like Salute Your Shorts?

Probably not, since I'm not going to an actual camp. What I am doing, along with The Good Husband, is participating in a 90 day weight loss challenge sponsored by TGH's work. We have been assigned a group and the group that loses the most weight at the end of the challenge will win $50 each.

I bet I will spend more than $100 in the next three months on healthy food. ::sigh:: Eyes on the prize, fatty and enjoy any weight you lose.

The challenge officially starts tomorrow but I have been warming TGH up all week by making smaller and healthier meals, packing his lunch and making him eat breakfast. We plan on following Weight Watchers, walking when the weather permits and doing P90X (yes, because we are crazy).

So far the menu has been:
Breakfast - one whole wheat english muffin, 2 oz reduced fat cream cheese, 1 medium banana and 1 8 oz glass of milk

Snack - granola bar

Lunch - Sliced turkey sandwich with onion, 1/4 avocado, lettuce, light mayo on whole wheat bread, 2 celery stalks with peanut butter, 3/2 cup grapes, 1/2 baby carrots and 1 gram cracker

Snack - 8 oz V8

Dinner - 4 oz salmon fillet, 4 peel and eat shrimp, 1 cup brown rice and broccoli

I haven't totaled the WW points on all this because, frankly, I am not stressing out too much about it at this point. I will save all the point counting for the next 90 days. At the end of the 90 days, I get to go dress shopping so I can watch my BBF from high school marry her boyfriend of the last 5 years. Hopefully I won't have to shop in the Woman section for that.

Wish me luck.

Since I know you love a good recipe...this site has lots of WW ones. I've tried a few and have found success so far :)
