Tonight's Dinner and Workout

Kirkwood Buffalo Style 
Chicken Breast Chunks

purchased at Aldi for $4.99. 

I found these in a the freezer section. I believe they come in a bbq flavor as well.

The chicken and the sauce packets are packaged separately, so you can add as much or as little sauce as you like.   

Since I'm a major hot wing lover these work for me.  NO, its not the same thing but I get the flavor and that's good enough for me, especially for 340 calories vs well over 100 for an order of my favorite Mattingly's Hot Wings.

1 serving equals 3 oz
170 calories
13 carbs
15 grams of protein

The sauce is 60 calories per 2 tbsp.  I only used 2 tbsp to coat 2 servings of chicken (6oz - pictured)  It is the mild version, so if you want it muy caliente, add some Tabasco. 

Tonight's work out was a 2.5 mile run, followed by 20 minutes on the elliptical for my cardio.  I ended it with a strong 30 minutes of arms/back/shoulders for 766 calories burned.


  1. Jac- I LOVE HOT WINGS! Do you have a BWW near you? I buy the sauce (usually 3 for $10) and bake chicken breast chunks or steam and bake wings and then coat them in the sauce. It is a good subsitute!

  2. YES!! We have BWW here. Love it!!

    The reason I like these little nuggets so much is because they're breaded. I often make "buffalo" things at home too!! Thanks for the tip on the sauce. I'll have to check it out!

  3. i hope you get this one this time ,im confused how to post, but im SO PROUD OF YOU. LOVE MOM

  4. Got it Mom. :). Thank you for always being there to support me. Love u

  5. Your mom is sofa king cute.

  6. My mother is CRAZYtown ridic!!! And that's why I heart her face. :)

    I love Aldi too!!

  7. 2.5 mile run?! i'm jealous! i wish i could do that! i usually have to run 2 min, walk 1 min, run 2 min, etc. i've never been a good runner though, even when i was in high school in the best shape of my life i still had to do that!

  8. Cori - that's how I used to be too. You have to "train" yourself. Start at a slower pace and work your way up. Don't try to run @ 5.0 right at the beginning. Start walking at 3.5 for 2 or 3 minutes, then gradually increase your speed. Go up 4.2 for 2 or 3 minutes. If that's comfortable stay there. Focus on the distance first THEN the speed. I ran my first mile at 4.5. Now I fluctuate between 4.5 and 5.3. Depends on my energy level that day. Also - control your breathing. Instead of trying to achieve the distance, get the breathing down first. For me, running is mind over matter. :)

  9. Thanks for the tip! I'll try it Wednesday when I go!
