Quick & Delicious Meals With Lean Cuisine

Remember how I told you a couple weeks back that I was getting fit with Lean Cuisine and the Couch-To-5K program? Well I’m back with an update! It’s been fun and most of all easy to make healthy choices with this program.

First, lets start with the one thing I typically despise- exercise! Following the Couch-To-5K program started me off slow which is the way I need to start. Check out the first day:

I hate running. Hate it. But running for 60 seconds? Yeah I can do that! Here’s me after one of my workouts {please don’t mind my post-workout look}:

I also had fun on one of the days working out on the soccer field at the parents vs. kids game on Jacob’s last day of soccer. These are the kind of workouts I like because it doesn’t feel like exercise {but those parents that have ever played a sport with a young child know you do a lot of running to get stray balls!}

I enjoyed the food I ate during the past couple weeks as well. Thought I was eating healthy meals with low calories I didn’t feel like I was on a “diet”. I’ve been really busy so some meals I ended up eating at my computer.

Some Lean Cuisine meals I ate with a side dish. I chose fresh vegetables for most of my sides.

With the addition of these sides I was full afterwards which was a great feeling since I’ve found I tend to be hungry after eating other frozen meals.

Out of the three flavors I ate in the past couple weeks, my favorite Lean Cuisine frozen meal was the Sesame Chicken. With these meals there is no reason for me to skip lunch or dinner anymore. In less than 5 minutes I can create a healthy, delicious meal for myself.

Tammilee, my blogging partner in this challenge, enjoyed this challenge as well. I love the tip she gave for making sure workouts stay on her mind by putting her shoes right next to the couch so she sees them everyday. That’s a tip I’m going to steal! {You can read about her journey in today’s update post.}

If you want to try the Asian flavors Lean Cuisine meals you can find 6 packs of them at Sam’s Club in the freezers.
