#31days Challenge with Lean Cuisine and Skinny Cow: Day 27

lean cuisine
This is my new favorite, hands down, well, besides the spring rolls that is. I finally got around to trying the Market Creations versions of Lean Cuisine and I bought the Shanghai Style Shrimp and there was only one problem with it, there wasn't enough.

I have joined, as you may already know, with 10 other women to try to make our lives a better place to be in #31days, with the help of Lean Cuisine and Skinny Cow. Unfortunately I have been sick for better part of it. Just when I think I'm getting better one day, the next day I feel bad again. I am (I think) getting better though and even though I have, up to date, lost 7 pounds, I can only wonder how much better the weight loss would be if I was actually doing some kind of physical activity. Today, I am going to go for a walk though. It is going to be almost 70F here today so I'm going to get out of the house and go for a walk. It might be a slower than usual walk, but it will still be a walk. Something is better than nothing, right?

My son asked me the other day if, when this challenge is complete, will I still buy the Lean Cuisine dinners and the Skinny Cow desserts. You bet I will. The Skinny Cow ice creams are other word does it justice. As far as the Lean Cuisine meals go, there are so many different kinds and styles of meals that it's impossible to get bored with what you're eating. So yes, I will be purchasing both of the brands when this challenge is over.

My boys got P90X a few days ago and my son, who is 19, is convinced I need to try it. Yes, he is trying to send me to an early grave. He comes out totally soaked and 'spent' after he does it and he's in great shape, so can you imagine if I attempted it? Oh my goodness, I'm not sure I'm ready for that. Someday maybe.

** I have been compensated by Collective Bias for this post but all the words and opinions are completely my own.


  1. I had considered getting the P90X but I couldn't afford it right now. If you do use it please let me know if it is worth the money for those of us that may be out of shape and not already fit. I know it seems to work really great for those already in shape. I plan on continuing after this challenge as well, my challenge is much longer as I have at least 75 pounds I want to lose and many inches. ;)

  2. @Homemom3: I might try P90X. The thing that gets to me is the eating plan. So much protein! I would be using my own eating plan though and not what they suggest. I just can't afford that.

    I have more weight than you that I would like to lose to so this will be ongoing, for sure.

  3. I have had trouble with the exercise portion also. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I know that is the key I need and will make me feel great. The P90X would be awesome... I have heard it is really hard.

  4. @Lisa I had wondered about their diet plan I saw a lot of people taking those protein shakes. I don't have that type of money either but I do see those workouts are really tough. Can't wait to read your progress and watch you shed those pounds. ;) I just got the Wii over the weekend and plan on using it a lot. ;)
