Italian BBQ Chicken and Squash Bowls

BBQ sauce and Italian dressing make a tangy sauce that is baked into chicken breasts, then placed into a bowl meal with a squash medley of zucchini, yellow squash and butternut squash.

So I’m pretty excited to say that I reached the 10 pound weightloss mark! Now, I have a long ways to go in this journey. Right now my focus is on losing weight, then I’ll switch my focus to getting stronger, but I have to say it was great to step on the scale and see double digits!

Roasted butternut squash and chicken bowl meals with garlic mushrooms in a white wine sauce

To be honest, if I don’t have an appetite then you know that I am really down for the count. A little cold and congestion generally won’t stop me from eating.
