Rank #1: Episode XXIII: Shout-outs and The Sous Vide Experiment

Aug 14 2018
Podcast cover

Greetings! This week we share some insight on where to look for support outside of Connect or your meeting rooms. There’s a whole big community out there if you look for it! We also give a recap of the Stan’s Donut 5K race that we ran over the weekend. What a fun themed race this was! We recorded a little video, and will be posting that soon. For the Weigh In, Greg shares how he’s doing. Tab still hasn’t had her monthly Lifetime weigh in, yet, but seems to be holding pretty steady. In the Freestyle, we talk about “Cool Moves” and how to keep active in the hot summer months. Also: don’t hate on sweating! It’s awesome! In the Recipe Corner, we have a double header. First up, our review of the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker. We cooked a flank steak first, adding about 1/4 cup Trader Joes Cold Pressed Green Goddess Salad Dressing, salt, pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp dried onions. From frozen, we cooked it at 131 degrees for 2 hours, then seared it 2 minutes per side in a cast iron skillet. It. Was. Perfection. Next we cooked 4 eggs at 146 degrees for 45 minutes. Most recipes suggest simmering the finished product for an additional couple of minutes, since the outer part of the egg white stays pretty loose still after the sous vide poach. We have to agree that this would be a good idea. Alternately, we’ll try poaching in sous vide for a minute longer and/or turning the eggs out onto paper towel before placing the finished product on toast. The yolk of these eggs was magical. And our other recipe – Greg’s Buffalo Chicken Salad It’s super simple. We use pre-prepped chicken strips from Costco and bagged kale salad. * 3 – 4 oz Chicken strips * I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter Spray * Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (to taste) * Bagged Cruciferous Crunch or other kale/brussels salad. * Low-fat Blue Cheese Salad Dressing Warm up the chicken, spray it with butter spray and toss it in hot sauce. Toss salad greens with blue cheese dressing. Top the greens with the warm chicken, toss, and serve. That’s it. Simple! We also share a few new-to-us treats that we’ve been enjoying. The winner of our “Yes, Italian!” cookbook giveaway was @katrinashree_ww – congratulations!! Our last giveaway will be up soon, and the prize is a 9-in-1 kitchen tool kit from Weight Watchers! Don’t forget – we have an “Ask Us Anything” episode coming up soon, so get your questions ready. What segments do you like? What do you want to hear more of? And our 1 year Weight Watchers anniversary is coming up – we’d love your suggestions for what to do to celebrate! Don’t forget to follow us on all the sosh meeds: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Rank #2: Episode XXII: Simply Filling & Sprengel Plan Review (plus another Giveaway!)

Aug 01 2018
Podcast cover

Hello friends! We start this episode with a recap of our Rock’n’Roll 1/2 marathon recap – how did we do? Did we meet our goals? We definitely had a great time, and recommend the races to folks who want to try running at any distance from 5K to full marathon. In the Weigh In, Greg continues to battle his way back to goal. Find out what’s been up on that front, and what new challenges he’s facing. In our Freestyle discussion, we tackle “Boost Self Esteem”. How can your self esteem affect your weight loss journey, and what can you do about it. Well, be your own BFF for one! We share another recipe from “Yes, Italian!” for our Recipe Corner. Get ready to enjoy the Porchetta Spiced Chicken with Broccolini! You can also find it on the Weight Watchers website and app if you don’t have the book. Here’s the link to the recipe! We also share our thoughts now that we’ve been following slightly different versions of the Weight Watchers plans. Greg has been adapting his Freestyle points to the Sprengel23 Plan and Tab has been following Simply Filling. We share our thoughts on the pros and cons of what we’re doing and whether or not we’ll keep following these plans. (For the record, it can be tricky to find a lot of information about Simply Filling on the WW websites, so do some digging, ask around on Connect, and use the Help feature on your app. When in doubt, you can always ask your leader for information.) We have a winner for the Weight Watchers Food Chopper – congratulations to Rosella Parretta of Canada! We’ll be shipping your prize off soon! Our next prize is the one and only “Yes, Italian!” Cookbook! We’ll be using Instagram to give this one away, so look for the post announcing the giveaway shortly. Looking ahead a couple of episodes, we’ll be doing another “Ask Us Anything” episode, so get your questions ready. If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!

Rank #3: Episode XXI: The Big Sugar Controversy! (and new Archer Farms Ice Cream flavors)

Jul 21 2018
Podcast cover

Hello friends! We hope you had a great week! We’re back with Episode 21 – or XXI if you’re Roman. This episode we share about an activity we participated in – an Historic Fun Run about the Great Chicago Fire hosted by Fleet Feet Chicago. We learned a lot about the fire, and Chicago while burning a lot of Activity Points – win/win!       Would you believe we actually went to WEIGH IN this week? We share how it went. The Freestyle Weekly topic was “Be Sugar Savvy”. It was very controversial in our meeting room – was that the case in your meeting room as well? We dig a little deeper and try and figure out why – bear in mind we are not doctors, we’re just trying to understand the topic. Weigh in with your own opinions. In Recipe Corner, we share a “scandalous” recipe for Pasta Puttanesca. We don’t have the rights to reprint it, but we share the details on our podcast, so have a listen. It’s honestly just “throw a bunch of salty stuff in a pan and add cooked spaghetti”, but slightly more refined. You can also find it in the “Yes, Italian” cookbook from Weight Watchers, or by clicking this link directly to the recipe on the Weight Watchers website. And did you know that Archer Farms (of Target Fame) has it’s own low-sugar, high-protein ice cream now? Well, we tried 4 of the flavors and we break them down for you. (Spoiler: they’re GOOD) We also found two new flavors of Quest Protein Bars that are great. Peanut Butter Brownie Smash and Maple Waffle Protein Bar. Check them out! Finally: We announce the winner of our first raffle! The winner of the Weight Watchers tote, Weight Watchers colored pencils and Weight Watchers note book is….. Samantha Martin of Kentucky. Congratulations!! Your prize will be on it’s way shortly! And we have a new raffle starting NOW!

Hello Friends! This week we bring you up to date on our return to Chicago and the fun we had at the #WWGood event in Lincoln Park. We had a blast! If the event is coming to your town, be sure to go! Then we focus on how Greg did with his dad visiting. Maybe you’ll recognize the decisions he made, or the struggle of “how do I stay on plan without being a party-pooper”. Can you? No weigh in this week so we did another Double Freestyle talk. We cover “Boost your Body Image” and what that means to each of us, as well as “Bring on the BBQ” – always a good reminder on how to manage those food-focused celebrations.

Rank #6: Episode 19: Dim Sum Race and then Some

Jul 11 2018
Podcast cover

We’re still tucked tightly into our way-back machine, getting caught up on our very busy June events. This episode, we’ll tell you all about the very cute “Dim Sum and then Some 5K” we ran in our neighborhood, and how it landed Tab in the ER. We also talk about how 5K races (or longer!) can be very motivational and inspirational as well as very affirming. We really encourage folks to try it out if they’re even a little bit curious. There was also a trip to Toronto to talk about – we ventured north for the weekend to attend Greg’s mom’s memorial event, and so that leads to a discussion about family events where you don’t control the food, and now we navigated this potentially emotional event,. How did we manage? In Freestyle talk, we doubled up, visiting the “Plan your Summer” topic and “Zero Point Foods”. Do we have plans for the summer? Do we eat anything *other* than zero point foods? Tune in! There’s lots of very real talk in this episode, so we hope you’re ready. And finally, in our Sneak Peek – Greg’s dad visited – did they eat anything *other* than ice cream while he was here? Are you planning to register for any of the races at runDisney’s Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World in January? Oh, and we’re hosting a bunch of GIVEAWAYS for the next few weeks!

If you’re a lover of all things Walt Disney World, then this episode is for you! We spent some time exploring the parks (and beyond) at Walt Disney World, and we share that experience in this episode. We include our recommendations for point-friendly snacks and meals, to help you realize that a trip to the theme parks doesn’t necessarily have to put the kibosh on your healthy food choices. The episode wraps up with some Top 5 lists, including Top 5 Resorts, Snacks, Rides, Characters and Extras – and as always, we’d love your feedback on those. What are your favorites?

Hello friends! We are finally back with Episode 17 where we start to fill you in on what’s been up with us for the last month. We hop in the WayBack Machine to fill in the blanks. This episode focuses on family visit in Florida, did we manage to stay on track while we were traveling? We also talk about the weekly Freestyle topic – “be here now” all about embracing mindfulness. Greg’s all in. Tab’s not sure. There’s a Recipe Recap, based on a delightful Salmon Panzanella salad we had when visiting family, but we don’t have the recipe. We’ll update as soon as we can. And finally – for our Sneak Peek – we’re going to DISNEYWORLD. Our next episode will be all about our favorite Disney things, including how we manage it while on plan with Weight Watchers.

Rank #9: Episode 16: The Simply Filling Experiment

May 24 2018
Podcast cover

Hey folks! Are you ready to hear about Greg & Tab’s experience at the Night Nation Run in Chicago? Well, buckle up and get ready to laugh along, because they have opinions about it! So many opinions. After that, slide on over to the Weigh In, and hear how Greg and Tab are faring on Lifetime. Some might say that Lifetime is harder than the weight loss journey. We won’t say that. We don’t want to scare you. Just listen. We check in with Tab; who, now that she’s Lifetime, apparently feels it necessary to fix what isn’t broken… She’s spending some time experimenting with Weight Watcher’s Simply Filling program to see if that is a good fit. Hear how it’s been going so far. (hint: pretty good) There’s also a wee Recipe Corner easter egg in there if you want to listen for it. The recipe for Sautéed Beef and Tomatoes can be found on Weight Watcher’s site, and it’s really, really yummy. Finally, our Sneak Peek has us looking forward to our show (tonight! at iO’s Jason Chin Harold Cabaret) and our trip to Florida to visit family and a few well-deserved days at Walt Disney World. Be sure to be following us on the sosh-meeds to get all the lowdown on how we’re staying on plan while we travel. Don’t forget to follow us on all the sosh meeds: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Rank #10: Episode 15: Wifetime Lifetime?

May 17 2018
Podcast cover

This week, we hear how Tab’s last minute race – the Cinco de Miler turned out. Spoiler: it was a lot of fun, and there were tacos and epic race photos – which for some reason we can’t upload here. We’ll post them on Insta. Greg and Tab also share how their first BBQ of the season went. Were they successful at keeping points-friendly? You be the judge. Moving on to the Weigh In: this is Tab’s final week of Maintenance. Does she make Lifetime? (If you follow Tab on Connect, you already know!) In the Freestyle section, we go over the idea of what to do “Instead of Eating”. This is always a challenging topic, so we’d love your feedback. We also give you the low-down on our first Instagram Poll – Nutter Butter Bites? Are they worth it? In Recipe Corner, we revisit the cookbook: Run Fast, Eat Slow and share their easily adaptable Fish Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa. We cut the olive oil, and used an Ole Wrap instead of corn tortillas, but this was a quick and easy meal that was packed with flavor. If you want to purchase a copy of Run Fast Eat Slow, please consider purchasing it via our “Tools” page (which contains affiliate links). Any proceeds will help us cover the costs of running our podcast! We will continue to add helpful products we actually use and recommend. In our Sneak Peek: We have a show coming up! At 10:30pm on May 23, we’ll be going bonkers at the Jason Chin Harold Cabaret in the iO Theater, Chicago. Tickets are $10 and available online or at the door. It’s sketch, songs and a little bit of improv, so if you’re in town and like comedy, come check us out! We’re also headed to Florida to visit family and spend a few days at Walt Disney World. Do you have any questions about doing Disney on Weight Watchers? Do you have any hot tips? What would you like to know? We’ll report live as much as we can!

Hello Friends! This week we bring you up to date on our return to Chicago and the fun we had at the #WWGood event in Lincoln Park. We had a blast! If the event is coming to your town, be sure to go! Then we focus on how Greg did with his dad visiting. Maybe you’ll recognize the decisions he made, or the struggle of “how do I stay on plan without being a party-pooper”. Can you? No weigh in this week so we did another Double Freestyle talk. We cover “Boost your Body Image” and what that means to each of us, as well as “Bring on the BBQ” – always a good reminder on how to manage those food-focused celebrations.

Rank #6: Episode 19: Dim Sum Race and then Some

Jul 11 2018
Podcast cover

We’re still tucked tightly into our way-back machine, getting caught up on our very busy June events. This episode, we’ll tell you all about the very cute “Dim Sum and then Some 5K” we ran in our neighborhood, and how it landed Tab in the ER. We also talk about how 5K races (or longer!) can be very motivational and inspirational as well as very affirming. We really encourage folks to try it out if they’re even a little bit curious. There was also a trip to Toronto to talk about – we ventured north for the weekend to attend Greg’s mom’s memorial event, and so that leads to a discussion about family events where you don’t control the food, and now we navigated this potentially emotional event,. How did we manage? In Freestyle talk, we doubled up, visiting the “Plan your Summer” topic and “Zero Point Foods”. Do we have plans for the summer? Do we eat anything *other* than zero point foods? Tune in! There’s lots of very real talk in this episode, so we hope you’re ready. And finally, in our Sneak Peek – Greg’s dad visited – did they eat anything *other* than ice cream while he was here? Are you planning to register for any of the races at runDisney’s Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World in January? Oh, and we’re hosting a bunch of GIVEAWAYS for the next few weeks!

If you’re a lover of all things Walt Disney World, then this episode is for you! We spent some time exploring the parks (and beyond) at Walt Disney World, and we share that experience in this episode. We include our recommendations for point-friendly snacks and meals, to help you realize that a trip to the theme parks doesn’t necessarily have to put the kibosh on your healthy food choices. The episode wraps up with some Top 5 lists, including Top 5 Resorts, Snacks, Rides, Characters and Extras – and as always, we’d love your feedback on those. What are your favorites?

Hello friends! We are finally back with Episode 17 where we start to fill you in on what’s been up with us for the last month. We hop in the WayBack Machine to fill in the blanks. This episode focuses on family visit in Florida, did we manage to stay on track while we were traveling? We also talk about the weekly Freestyle topic – “be here now” all about embracing mindfulness. Greg’s all in. Tab’s not sure. There’s a Recipe Recap, based on a delightful Salmon Panzanella salad we had when visiting family, but we don’t have the recipe. We’ll update as soon as we can. And finally – for our Sneak Peek – we’re going to DISNEYWORLD. Our next episode will be all about our favorite Disney things, including how we manage it while on plan with Weight Watchers.

Rank #9: Episode 16: The Simply Filling Experiment

May 24 2018
Podcast cover

Hey folks! Are you ready to hear about Greg & Tab’s experience at the Night Nation Run in Chicago? Well, buckle up and get ready to laugh along, because they have opinions about it! So many opinions. After that, slide on over to the Weigh In, and hear how Greg and Tab are faring on Lifetime. Some might say that Lifetime is harder than the weight loss journey. We won’t say that. We don’t want to scare you. Just listen. We check in with Tab; who, now that she’s Lifetime, apparently feels it necessary to fix what isn’t broken… She’s spending some time experimenting with Weight Watcher’s Simply Filling program to see if that is a good fit. Hear how it’s been going so far. (hint: pretty good) There’s also a wee Recipe Corner easter egg in there if you want to listen for it. The recipe for Sautéed Beef and Tomatoes can be found on Weight Watcher’s site, and it’s really, really yummy. Finally, our Sneak Peek has us looking forward to our show (tonight! at iO’s Jason Chin Harold Cabaret) and our trip to Florida to visit family and a few well-deserved days at Walt Disney World. Be sure to be following us on the sosh-meeds to get all the lowdown on how we’re staying on plan while we travel. Don’t forget to follow us on all the sosh meeds: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Rank #10: Episode 15: Wifetime Lifetime?

May 17 2018
Podcast cover

This week, we hear how Tab’s last minute race – the Cinco de Miler turned out. Spoiler: it was a lot of fun, and there were tacos and epic race photos – which for some reason we can’t upload here. We’ll post them on Insta. Greg and Tab also share how their first BBQ of the season went. Were they successful at keeping points-friendly? You be the judge. Moving on to the Weigh In: this is Tab’s final week of Maintenance. Does she make Lifetime? (If you follow Tab on Connect, you already know!) In the Freestyle section, we go over the idea of what to do “Instead of Eating”. This is always a challenging topic, so we’d love your feedback. We also give you the low-down on our first Instagram Poll – Nutter Butter Bites? Are they worth it? In Recipe Corner, we revisit the cookbook: Run Fast, Eat Slow and share their easily adaptable Fish Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa. We cut the olive oil, and used an Ole Wrap instead of corn tortillas, but this was a quick and easy meal that was packed with flavor. If you want to purchase a copy of Run Fast Eat Slow, please consider purchasing it via our “Tools” page (which contains affiliate links). Any proceeds will help us cover the costs of running our podcast! We will continue to add helpful products we actually use and recommend. In our Sneak Peek: We have a show coming up! At 10:30pm on May 23, we’ll be going bonkers at the Jason Chin Harold Cabaret in the iO Theater, Chicago. Tickets are $10 and available online or at the door. It’s sketch, songs and a little bit of improv, so if you’re in town and like comedy, come check us out! We’re also headed to Florida to visit family and spend a few days at Walt Disney World. Do you have any questions about doing Disney on Weight Watchers? Do you have any hot tips? What would you like to know? We’ll report live as much as we can!
