Writing and Rowing

Quick Business:  I have to apologize to my blog subscribers.  I accidentally published this post twice while it was partially done today.  Sorry for too many emails!  But on to the big news. It’s here!  This beautiful baby arrived a day early.  My husband built it for me last night and it has been devastating every muscle […]

Caught Without Candy

Apples and peanut butter for breakfast today, 11 Weight Watchers Points Plus.  Tall chai creme frappuccino with whipped cream and mashed yams for lunch, 14 Points Plus.  I snuck two Doritos somewhere along the way, 1 Point Plus. Heat and eat veggie lasagna for dinner, 13 Points Plus. I don’t celebrate Halloween but I don’t […]

Hummus Where My Heart Is

Today went very well. I stuck to my points and something very exciting happened. I ordered my WaterRower!  It should come between Wednesday of next week and the following Monday.  I can’t wait to start rowing. I’m very excited about having such a convenient way of getting a full body workout with almost no impact […]

Soup at Any Hour

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 […]

38/39

The new daily allowance of 39 Weight Watchers Points Plus has been manageable, but I can feel the difference! Today I had a big 8-ounce Noosa blueberry yogurt for breakfast, 7 Points Plus. An apple later in the morning, zero Points Plus. I went on a long walk with my daughter to the library, the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

My Corny Day on Weight Watchers 

Today was an awesome lazy Sunday, and the diet is on track. I had a turkey B.L.T. for brunch, 12 Weight Watchers Points Plus.   And I finally tried these candy corn m&m’s that I picked up at the drug store the other day. They were 6 Points Plus.  They’re filled with white chocolate and that […]
