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. […]

Eid Al-Adha at Home, on Weight Watchers 

Eid mubarak to those who are celebrating today.   Today we had a tiny Eid celebration with just my husband, myself, and my daughter. The big family gathering is tomorrow at a restaurant, then back here for cake and tea. Luckily my husband recently started Weight Watchers as well, so he didn’t mind that I […]

Just the Foods, Ma’am

Today’s breakfast was a turkey BLT with a raspberry tea, 15 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   2 caramels for a mid morning snack, 4 Points Plus.  And for lunch, 3 inches of leftover tuna sub, plus an apple, 6 Points Plus.    In the afternoon I did my arm, butt, and thigh challenges and got […]

Caramel, Maple, Meat

Ok, I’m not sure what is happening this week, but I keep getting startled every time I catch a side view of myself in the mirror. There has been a really sudden belly reduction! It’s in the region between the waist and hips, so not a place I measure, but who needs a measuring tape […]

The Day I Broke Up With an Old Comfort Food / C25k Day 4

Today’s breakfast was a turkey B.L.T. from the deli, 12 Points Plus.   With a side of important info: Lunch was a can of Annie’s cheesy ravioli with one cookie. O-n-e, one, 11 Points Plus. Just kidding, I had a second one. 2 Points Plus   I’ve been worrying about how I’m going to fit C25k in […]

It fit!

I was extra hungry at breakfast. Two mini pitas with tons of hummus, 12 Points Plus.    I’ve had some Honest teas in the house staring me down since before I started Weight Watchers.  I’ve been avoiding them because they’re sweetened with sugar but today I found out that a raspberry one is only 3 […]

C25k Day One…and I Enjoyed It?

Something huge and strange happened today. I did Couch to 5k day one, and I actually enjoyed it. This is the third time I’ve attempted C25k in years gone by and the other times were a huge struggle, I hated that voice that told me to start running, and my ankles and calves were swollen to […]

Operation Earn My Funnel Cake Is a Success

Well, I actually did it! After two days of hard work and careful eating, I have earned enough activity points to cover the funnel cake and rice and kebab platter I want to have at the amusement park tomorrow.  Then I did a lot of lazing about on the couch, in order to hopefully be fully recovered […]

The Day I Totally Binged Out in a Completely Unnecessary Manner

I’m not lying, and I’m not hiding.  Today was a dietary disaster. I have no idea why I let this happen. The good news is that this is all covered by weekly points.  The bad news is that I used 46/49 of those points on this, the first day of my diet week. The worse […]

I’ll have to exercise in a non-video game format? Gulp.

I was craving protein in the morning, so for breakfast I had some leftover chicken cutlet with 4 Tbsp. hummus on top, for 8 Points Plus. Then I got on the Wii to get some exercise in for the day, when I got a very bad error message. A bit of googling reveals that this […]
