Fitness on Friday #2

Well its time for Fitness on Friday hosted by Natalie at Bye Bye Fat Mom! This past week at my Weight Watchers Meeting, I was one of the few with a loss! I lost 3.6 pounds and got my first 5 point star! I have lost a total of 34.6 pounds now, 8.2 of that since joining Weight Watchers. This week was the first week that I really started to exercise again after having been sick for over 2 weeks and it felt good. I usually do Leslie Sansone walking DVD's and I really like those. My favorite one is the Walk and Kick DVD, it is 30 minutes and earns me 3 activity points! My goal is 18 activity points for this week and so far so good! Easter was not as hard for me as I thought it would be. I ate a Easter dinner of ham, mashed potatoes, corn, and green beans. I also ate about 5 deviled eggs. I love those but had to pay a lot of points for them. Most of my kids Easter candy is gone, but I really was not into the candy anyways. I ate a bite of a rabbit and that got me over my craving for it. Tonight dh and I are going on a date to Applebee's. The have Weight Watcher meals and I want to try them. I am also going to get dessert and it will only be 11 points for dinner! I like to leave you with recipes. I love to cook so here are some links to some recipes I posted this week and here I will leave the recipe we had for dinner! Enjoy!
Better than Spring Lemon Cake-points depends on cake mix 3-4 points?
I also have a Diet Cola Cake recipe there, so enjoy!
Last night, we had Mom's Pizza. I found this recipe here, but i have changed it a bit since I last posted it, so here is how I make it. This is so yummy and only 4 points per serving, depending on how you cut your pizza.

Mom's Pizza Adam's Family Style
Cheese Pizza
1 (13.8-oz) tube of refrigerated Pillsbury classic pizza crust*
1 small 6-oz can tomato paste (Use the flavor of your choice.)
1 packet Italian Spaghetti Sauce Mix (Any brand is fine - I use Great Value Walmart brand)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (Or you can use a five-cheese blend like the one from Kraft which includes low-moisture, part-skim mozzarella, provolone, Romano, Asiaso, and Parmesan cheese)
* Alternately, you can use 1 box Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix, 1 package of refrigerated pizza dough, or any other ready-made pizza crust. These are all roughly the same points value, but please note that the Nutritional Info below is based on the refrigerated 13.8-oz tube Pillsbury pizza crust.
Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Spray or grease cookie sheet or pizza pan. Unroll dough on greased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Press to desired size, shape and thickness. Set aside.
Place tomato paste, 12-oz of water (use the paste can twice to measure), and sauce mix in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring every few minutes with a whisk.
Top dough with pizza sauce, cheese, and desired toppings(add points for those toppings if necessary.) Bake 10-15 minutes.
Here is what I do differently, to me this pizza sauce is way too thick and tasted much better when I added 12 ounces of water instead of 6 ounces as in the original recipe. this is enough sauce for two pizza's which in my house I have to have two. Just add more cheese and other toppings. This is super easy and fast!
Yields: 8 slices
Nutritional Info:
(1/8 of pizza) 202.5 calories, 4.8 g. fat, 0.6 g. fiber (4 points per slice)
(1/6 of pizza) 270 calories, 6.4 g. fat, 0.8 g. fiber (6 points per slice)
