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 […]

Defeat of the Feet (and Knees, and Hips)

I’m disappointed to say that this is me (kind of) signing off with C25k (for now).  I may have been pushing it to try another walk/run today. I had planned to wait another day, but the pain was pretty much gone, so I decided I’d just try it today, but take it a bit easy. […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Public Service Announcement: Midnight Snacks Count for the Next Day. Do With This Information What You Will.

I had a midnight snack last night that I didn’t photograph: peaches canned in juice, drained, and pineapple canned in juice, with the juice for 2 Points Plus. But when I went to enter it into the Weight Watchers app, the whole day was blank. I was confused for a moment, but then I realized […]

  The day I Actually Ate “Breakfast Food” For Breakfast

Pineapple in juice, plain full fat Greek yogurt, and a granola bar. 11 Points Plus.   No Wii Fit this morning because I knew I’d be going out walking later in the day, but I did earn one activity point for my 30 day thigh, butt, and arm challenges.  Lunch was cottage cheese on garlic bread […]

The Day I Willingly Did Several Types of Squats

Today I am proud of myself, because today is the day that I accepted the fact that half a giant bagel is really quite enough for breakfast, and that since there’s no chance of the bagel vanishing into thin air, it truly is not a problem to put the other half away for later. Breakfast: 10 Points […]
