Keeping it Caramel

Breakfast today was 2 whole wheat mini pitas with hummus, 10 Points Plus.  An unconventional lunch/salve for my sweet tooth: Pops almond roca butter toffee popcorn, 14 Points Plus. Peaches canned in juice, drained, and seaweed in the afternoon, 0 Points Plus.  Dinner was delayed and I was getting too hungry so I had a […]

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 […]

Getting Ahead of Myself 

When I started Weight Watchers my daily Points Plus allowance was 43.  That number has decreased as I’ve lost weight.  Now my daily allowance is 39.  The decrease is gradual, at a rate of one point every few weeks.  The decrease to 39 has seemed harder than the others, but I think it’s mostly psychological. […]

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 […]

Warning: Pizza Inside 

Portion size is such a mind game. I guess we’re supposed to call these non-scale victories.  I wanted to have this for breakfast.  I was so close to doing it that I snapped a photo for the blog and everything.  I wanted to, but it would have been 16 Weight Watchers Points Plus and I wanted […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Big Victory 

Hi, guys!  I noticed that I mostly eat the same foods over and over, so I decided that I’m not going to post food journals every day, but just do it on days when I eat differently, because no one really needs to see another picture of a turkey BLT or hummus pitas!  On that […]
