Soup at Any Hour

IMG_1265-0

Today was “Let’s Use Up the Leftovers Day” in my house.  That probably doesn’t explain why I had chicken and dumpling soup for breakfast considering that I ended  up having yogurt a few hours later, but moving on…  Breakfast was 10 Points Plus  I had a mini pita with hummus and a raspberry tea for […]

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 […]

Kung. Pao. Chicken.

After a couple of splurgey days I wanted to get back on track in terms of my Weight Watchers Points Plus plan today.   I had a day out with my family with some indulgent foods, but managed to stick to my points budget overall. I wasn’t hungry in the morning because of my huge […]

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 […]

Meat, Carbs, Salad, and Tea: a Saturday on Weight Watchers 

The truly cold fall weather is finally here, and Brooklyn is damp from yesterday’s heavy rain.  It’s the perfect type of day for hot drinks and meat encased in carbs. We skipped breakfast to have a big brunch, mini crescent dogs with arugula and an apple, 14 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   And an iced […]

No Cake

Well, I didn’t exercise today as I was trying to give my ankle a break. The good news is that it’s feeling better and I hope that after a day or two I’ll be back in the game. Breakfast today was a mini pita with extra hummus and an orange, 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus. […]

Proceeding with the Process

It was the last day of my family’s four day weekend and I had plans for some naughty food later in the day, so I started my morning with a breakfast of apples, for zero Weight Watchers Points Plus.   We were having a lazy tv day, so at lunch time we had some lazy […]
