Laser Focus

So, leftover cookies for breakfast. Oh dear. 14 Weight Watchers Points Plus. (Don’t worry, I finished the day on plan!) But of course I was hungry by late morning because cookies don’t keep you satisfied. So I had a heaping bowl of lettuce with a mini pita and hummus, 5 Points Plus. Then I spent […]

I Added Meat

Today was a nice lazy day at home baking, slow cooking, and crafting. I had a turkey BLT for breakfast, 12 Points Plus. And a Kind bar in late morning, 6 Points Plus. I saw instructions for these cute cookies on the Pilsbury web site weeks ago and knew that I wanted to make them […]

Glitter, Chipotle, and Matt Damon

I grew up in the Midwestern suburbs.  While I love living in Brooklyn there are certain things I miss about the suburban life.  Every few months my husband plays hooky from work, we send my daughter off to her grandma for the day, and we head out to Long Island to partake of stores the […]

The Final Day of the Week of Nonsense

I started the day with -28 weekly points remaining after my frienemies Ben and Jerry whisked me off for some misadventures last night.  I’m feeling centered at last, and I did the best thing I could: I finished the last day of my Weight Watchers week within my daily Points Plus allowance.  The only unhelpful […]

Diet Fail

Ok, so I started the day with zero Weight Watchers weekly points remaining and two more days until weigh in.  I was determined to get through two days of hitting my daily point allotment right on target. I had cravings. I resisted. I planned and revised those plans. I had dinner early because I was […]

My Sick Habit

I was up late last night and got really hungry because of my weird meal timings yesterday, so I had a midnight snack of two mini pitas with extra hummus, 10 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   I had a zero point breakfast to make up for that. I had a banana, but I was still hungry […]

I Ate Like a Fat Person Today

So I woke up with a massive vegetable craving today. It’s true that my diet has been a little lacking in vegetables lately, but this one took me by surprise!  Breakfast was a giant bowl of arugula and a kind bar, 6 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   I made nachos with my daughter for lunch. I […]

Cheese Splurge

I splurged a little today diet-wise, but not too badly for a Saturday.  And I got in an hour of fast walking, so I’m pretty satisfied with my record for the day. For breakfast I had some hummus straight from the container while I waited for the rest of the family to wake up, 3 […]

I’m baaaack

It feels like a long time since I posted one of these visual food journals. In fact, it’s only been a few days.  Today was the start of a new Weight Watchers week for me, and I’m happy to say I’ve started off on the right foot. Brunch was a turkey BLT, 12 Weight Watchers […]
