Fit Tuesday #2

Welcome to another Fit Tuesday!!  I have to say that just when I start getting rolling, the hubs comes home with 2 large bags of plain M& that man, but, dang it, what are ya doin to me???  So, I admit that I opened them and had about 10 and then closed those suckers back up again!  The other bag is unopened. So, once in a while, I may get an M&M since it's almost impossible to survive without can google it, hehe!

This week I thought I would share a recipe that I am lovin for lunch these days!

Homemade Healthy Chicken Salad


1 rotisserie chicken, cut up and chopped/shredded {no skin}
1/3-2/3 cups light mayonnaise {to taste}
1 stalk celery, chopped
20 seedless grapes
1/8 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 onion {optional}
a couple hits of Texas Pete {optional, but oh so good!!}
salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together.....really, that's all there is to it!  I bought these great squishy rolls from the bakery section and they were sooo good!!  The hubs isn't a big fan of "salads" but my girlies LOVED these sandwiches!!  Dayna is my foodie daughter, and she ate 1 1/2 sandwiches :o)  It's very filling and packed with protein.

Serves 8

Chicken Salad {without bread} points value: 6 per serving using 1/3 cup light mayo

This week's stats:

Pounds lost this week:  3
Total pounds lost: 5
Pounds to go: 95

What about you??  How have you been doing this week? I love reading about everyone's plans for getting fit, and small successes are STILL success!!


  1. Great recipe idea. Congrats on the loss!

  2. It's a rough journey! I'm excited to follow along with you. I have been struggling with some bazaar health problems in the last year. I had to go on this diet for 6 weeks (Eat to Live) that was really challenging. But it was supposed to bring down inflammation, balance out hormones and shed excess weight. It was very hard for me but it was only 6 weeks. Sometimes I cheated with a little chocolate (I mean do I really need to explain that? hee hee) But, my goodness, I lost more than I thought I would. After the initial 6 weeks you eat the lifestyle 60% of the time. Totally do-able! And I'm still losing slowly and steadily. I wish you the best of luck! Stay strong and a little chocolate never hurt anyone :-)

  3. Hi! So nice to meet you! I have been looking for a lovely Chicken Salad recipe for a while now! I am looking forward to trying yours! However, I don't have any idea what the Texas Pete is and I'm all the way over in the Middle East! I get to come home this summer and well, I'm just happy to find your site. I look forward to reading it!
