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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Back on Track 

My primary dietary goal from 6 AM to 6 PM today was to make sure I had enough Weight Watchers Points Plus left over to have Taco Bell and cake this evening. So committed was I to this noble endeavor that I willingly consumed fat free dairy this morning.  Breakfast: fat free cherry greek yogurt […]

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 […]
