Cozy Saturday

January 15, 2017 — Leave a comment

I took full advantage of being home all day yesterday. I relaxed all morning drinking coffee by the fire, I did a treadmill YouTube video, a Yoga YouTube Video, I took a long bath, did a little house cleaning, I played in the kitchen a little and we finished up watching Homeland last night. I’d say it was a great and cozy Saturday at home.

Have you watched Homeland? It is intense and oh so good!!

I know I need to up my activity a bit, so I searched on YouTube for a treadmill video and the perfect one popped up right away. 5 minute warm up, walk 1 minute, run/jog 4 minutes and a 5 minute cool down for a total of a 30 minute workout. Perfect, and I ran each 4 minute section. I hadn’t done any running or jogging in forever (and I think I have plantar fasciitis??) so I wasn’t sure if I would want to stop or not, but I competed it. I followed that up with a 30 minute Yoga video. I was feeling pretty good about the activity points that I earned yesterday, and it always feel good to take advantage of some of the space in this empty nester house! 🙂

 

What’s a great thing to do on a cold Saturday afternoon? Take a hot bath. My Yoga instructor gave me a couple of samples of Epsom Salt a few months ago and they have been sitting on my tub waiting for a long soak day. That day came yesterday. I just might have to do that again today. 

 

I decided to play with a Butternut Squash and see if I could make some crispy chips?? Nope. Couldn’t get them crispy without burning them, so I sliced these “chips” up and used them on our salad for lunch.

 

Plantains are new to me in the past year and a half or so. I roasted them one time to make chips, but they didn’t turn out awesome, so I buy them already roasted. I love the Trader Joe’s brand the most. I really don’t know much about plantains, but I do know that it is common to eat them prepared as a dessert dish. Before ever tasting them, I assumed that they tasted like Banana’s. They do not. They do not taste like Banana’s at all!

I saw a recipe for Taco Meat over Mashed Plantains, and I was curious.

Cut the plantain into chunks, boil for 10-15 minutes, drain, add ghee or butter, salt and mash. I only made one plantain, and we ate a small bowl with our dinner, but we did like it so I’ll try that again to serve with something! 

This is just a small bowl topped with Taco Meat and Cilantro.

 

It really was a cozy day. I might get antsy today and have to venture out. We’ll see what the roads are like. We are watching the Chiefs game tonight at a neighbors house, so I might try to make up a yummy and SmartPoint friendly snack.

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Pre-Breakfast – 1 SP

Un-Pictured Banana and Coffee with 1 tsp Coconut Milk

Breakfast – 7 SP

This was a weird breakfast choice, I know, but it was the last of the Egg Roll Stir Fry and it just sounded good.

 

Lunch – 9 SP

Salad greens topped with lots of yumminess. Chicken, Apples, Apple Juice Sweetened Cranberries, Raw Pecans, Butternut Squash, homemade dressing.

 

Snack – 2 SP

I had just a little chicken and butternut squash still in the fridge so  I snacked on it while I assembled our dinner salads.

 

Dinner – 11 SP

A small bowl of Mashed Plantain with Taco Meat, Pico and Cilantro and a Turkey Taco Salad with lots of veggies and store bought Roasted Plantains.

My Snow Day

January 14, 2017 — 2 Comments

Most of the schools cancelled class yesterday and we had no precipitation all day long. When I let the dogs out before going to bed last night, the deck was a sheet of ice. Mishka would barely step outside at all and Tucker went down two steps, then turned around and looked at me and wouldn’t move. I had to go pick him up, leash him and takes the dogs to the front yard. Those kids.

I’m glad I made it to the grocery store with all of the other crazies yesterday, but I will admit that I was surprised to see that there were no banana’s, no zucchini (I found some organic zucchini, and I really wanted to pull that organic sticker off!!!), very few potatoes and no chicken stock!! The canned tomato and bean isle was bare!! I guess everyone is having chili, potatoes and banana’s this weekend??

Zero banana’s…..

Zero Chicken Stock and a few random cartons and cans of beef stock.

I filled up my cart with meat, veggies and some pricey zucchini. I made a big skillet of Taco Meat when I got home. The meatballs were pretty yummy last week, so I might be making those again. I have plenty of food, with a few ideas in mind for the next few days.

I met a few friends for Happy Hour at a neighbors where we all had coffee or tea. We’re doing a great job of supporting each other in taking a break from the adult beverages!

I love pretty much all coffee’s and tea’s but this is one of my favorites right now.

I’ve been working hard since December 30th to get those holiday pounds off and I gotta tell ya, it’s a S L O W go. I’ve been active, but I wouldn’t say that I’ve had a good workout in a while. I’ve been on the treadmill at home, walked outside and I’ve been doing Yoga at home. My Yoga class is much more intense than anything that I would do at home and I haven’t been in a while. I would imagine that is making some difference in what the scale is and is not doing. 

I’m doing great at tracking my food and staying within my points for the day. I haven’t had any adult beverages since New Years Eve. I’m not doing a great job of getting in 100 ounces of water a day. It’s more like 60-80? Need to work on that. That’s an easy one.

No matter what the scale says, I feel so much better than I did on December 29th!

If you have bad weather where you are, I hope you are able to stay in today where it’s warm and safe.

I’m planning an uneventful and quiet day at home.

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 9 SP

Sweet Potato and Veggie Hash topped with an Egg, Bacon, Berries

 

Lunch – 12 SP

Loving leftovers for lunch

Grilled Chicken Breast with Vinaigrette for extra flavor, Green Beans with almonds, Butternut Squash, Berries with Almond Butter

 

Snack – 8 SP

Un-Pictured Raw Walnuts and Dried Cranberries

Dinner – 7 SP

Taco Meat Wraps?? A few Plantains on the side.

Snow/Ice Day??

January 13, 2017 — 4 Comments

The School Districts went into some sort of panic mode here last night and cancelled school today due to the forecast. We may or may not have some ice this afternoon? It’s still unclear to me. Well, after hearing that on the news last night, I changed my whole day around because the media is always right. (insert major eye roll here) I don’t have my car this morning anyhow, (That is going to be a small fortune to pick up later today!) so I needed to change things around a bit anyhow. I did have my Christmas present massage scheduled this afternoon. I’ll just look forward to that next week and spend today in the kitchen. Sounds like a nice way to spend a cold afternoon anyhow.

I met a few friends around 5:00 last night at a Mexican restaurant for a birthday celebration, and while they were enjoying $2.50 Margaritas, chips and salsa and dinner, I had coffee and water. It’s weird how easy it is to do some things once you have truly made up your mind. It really does make you aware of how in control you are. Nobody questioned my beverage choices and we had some great chit chat.

I ate dinner when I came home.

Has anyone heard of Egg Roll Stir Fry? Well, I hadn’t, but my friend found the recipe on Pinterest and really liked it, so I was curious. Dinner last night was so good!

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Breakfast – 9 SP

I left the house early to get my car into the shop. I knew there was a First Watch close by, so I set up there for the morning. Turns out, they needed my car over night, but breakfast was delicious.

To keep my meal just a tad lower in points, I tried to eat only half of the potatoes.

 

Lunch – 6 SP

Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps

 

Snack – 6 SP

Hot Tea and two Fruit and Nut Balls. These are so good, but so high in points! A friend of mine brought these over for me to taste. I’m so glad I don’t have a bunch in the pantry. Total trigger food for me. Delish.

It’s All Relative

January 12, 2017 — Leave a comment

I like rules and guidelines. I have a clearer vision of what I need to do when I have them.

Since discovering the Blue Dots on the Weight Watcher App, I’m shooting to eat between 27-37 SmartPoints each day since that is what Weight Watcher’s recommends that I eat based on my gender, age, height and weight.

Yesterday, I ate a low point, but very filling breakfast and lunch. Come dinner time, I knew we were eating Chicken Breast, and that’s all that I really had planned. After a little more planning, I still wasn’t going to be even close to eating all of my daily points. I added a little extra Olive Oil to the green beans and added almonds to increase my points for the day.

After dinner, with several points still left for the day, I debated making up some trail mix to snack on for the evening so I could eat all of my points. I was full. It seemed silly to eat if I really wasn’t hungry. Not snacking is one of the bad habits that I let sneak back in over the holidays. I’d like to be at a place where I am only snacking if I am truly hungry.

I decided that it was silly to eat if I wasn’t hungry.

I didn’t earn a Blue Dot yesterday, but I ate a really healthy variety of foods and at the end of the day I was completely satiated. Learning what my body does and does not need is such an important part of the journey, I decided that it was okay if I didn’t follow all of the rules and guidelines yesterday.

I still want those Blue Dots because it is just one more tool that guides me to stay on track, but I also know that listening to my body was a huge success.

It’s all relative, right?

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 2 SP

Scrambled Egg Whites topped with Tomatoes, Fruit with 1 tsp Almond Butter

 

Lunch – 6 SP

Tuna Salad made with Paleo Mayo, Mustard, Salt and Pepper and bulked up with Celery, Onions and Shredded Carrots. Berries and Veggies on the side.

 

Dinner – 11 SP

Chicken Breast, Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Beans with Almonds.

A Fruit and Nut Day

January 11, 2017 — 5 Comments

Just as I posted a blog stating that I needed to put my RXBar’s outta sight for a few days, I was running a bit behind and grabbed one of them and an apple to eat for breakfast in the car.

I was gone from 8:00 to 4:00 yesterday with no meal plan for while I was gone.

I stayed within my SmartPoints range and I still got in a full day of whole foods, it just wasn’t the best balanced day.

Oh, and I made this White Chicken Chili the other day in the crockpot. Here is the picture from the Website. Looks amazing, right?

Here is a picture of my my crockpot. It doesn’t look nearly as good, but it did have good flavor. It did call for Almond Milk, and I left that out. Maybe I’ll try this again using all of the ingredients and see what I think.

I got in a 2 mile walk outside with a friend, then took the pooches for a 1/2 mile stroll. It was a tad chilly. Do you burn more calories when you walk outside and its cold?? I feel like it’s a good possibility! I’ll tell myself “Yes”!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

Pumpkin Spice RXBar. Nuts…in a bar. 

Snack – 0 SP

Apple

Snack – 0 SP

I ran in Target between the meetings that I was working and I bought these to sit in the car and eat.

Black Coffee, Banana and Carrots. More fruit for the day.

 

Lunch – 7 SP

At 4:00, I was now home and I was starving. I decided to not let this Crockpot White Chili go to waste.

White Chicken Chili with Avocado and a few un-pictured Raw Almonds. Again, with the nuts!

 

Dinner – 14 SP

It was kind of late when I started cooking dinner, so I decided that I would just make Bee Burgers in the skillet and roast some Brussels Sprouts. Easy. I decided a slice of prosciutto might taste good on the burger, then it was calling for some Smashed Avocado. It still needed something, and i had plenty of points left for the day, so I topped it with an Egg.

Burger, Prosciutto, Avocado, Egg and Brussels Sprouts.

More Balls

January 10, 2017 — 2 Comments

You guys, it’s hard to come up with a blog post title every…single…day. I’m not that clever. Sometimes, I just gotta call it what it is.

After posting my blog yesterday, Bird Balls, I received a reminder text from my doctor’s office that I had an appointment at 10:40 a.m. Thank goodness for all of the things that we can do with our cell phones! I had completely forgotten about it, so my 9:00 a.m. Hot Yoga class didn’t happen, but I did get in a 3 mile walk outside in the afternoon.

I had planned to pick up some paint color samples to bring home. Yeah, that didn’t happen either. Here’s what did happen. After my appointment (just an annual thing), I went through the car wash, drove 1/2 mile when a gazillion (I am not exaggerating) birds flew over and about 10 of them pooped on my clean car! At least the sun roof wasn’t open. 

I drove home in my poopy car. I spent a large part of the afternoon on the phone. I attempted to finalize an insurance disaster, I scheduled a mammogram, I made an appointment to take my car to the shop, I made a hair appointment and I scheduled a massage that Mike bought me for Christmas. The next several days are booked! After my walk, I cranked up the tunes and played in the kitchen with another new Chicken recipe. 

I found a recipe for Chicken Veggie Poppers, or…Chicken Veggie Balls, the other day and it looked like something I thought we should try.

These are packed full of Zucchini and Carrots. Each one is only one SmartPoint. These have dill in them and I’m not a huge dill fan, but Mike is and he really liked these. These could make a great party snack! 

What new recipes are you trying?

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 6 SP

Two Eggs, Banana and 2 tsp Almond Butter.

Pretty simple. Cook eggs in pepper rings in skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat with lid on pan. These were crispy on the bottom with a runny yolk.

 

Snack – 3 SP

Un-Pictured Tall Latte with Coconut Milk

I’m staying away from sugar for the month. Like NO SUGAR. No artificial sweeteners, nothing. Reading all labels. No sugar. After ordering this drink, I thought about the fact that I didn’t really know what the ingredients were in the Starbucks coconut milk. I Googled “Starbucks Coconut Milk Nutritional Information and Ingredients”. Cane Sugar. Ooops.

 

Lunch – 6 SP

Leftover Bird Balls and Marinara over Spaghetti Squash

 

Snack – 7 SP

Un-Pictured Blueberry RXBar

Okay, I’ve been doing good not over indulging in these, but I might need to put them out of sight for a few days.

 

Dinner – 15 SP

Chicken Veggie Poppers, un-pictured Dill Mayo for dipping, White Sweet Potato Wedges (plus a few more), Salad

Bird Balls

January 9, 2017 — 8 Comments

A quiet day here on Sunday. It was nice.

I watched a little Netflix while Mike replaced all of the under cabinet lights in the kitchen. He was having a blast. I could tell.

After I had new lights, I went in the kitchen and played with a Chicken and Turkey Meatball recipe that I found on Instagram. These are called Bird Balls. You knew that title was all about a recipe, right? These meatballs are made with ground chicken and ground turkey.

This recipe is floating around Instagram and I think the credit goes to mudhustler_official. Pretty simple.

These huge meatballs are only TWO SmartPoints each.

Lunch was yummy. I made beef burgers with 85/15 meat and they were really really good, so I ate 1/2 of one while I was cooking these potato wedges. For the wedges, I took a cooked White Sweet Potato and sliced it into wedges. I then cooked them in a bit of oil in the skillet. Basically, we had fries, but just a few. Delish.

1/2 Un-Pictured Beef Burger, then one Beef Burger topped with Smashed Avocado, Sweet Potato Wedges, Raw Veggies

 

Dinner – 6 SP

Since I had so many points for lunch, I knew that dinner needed to be a low point option.

Blue Dot Week

January 8, 2017 — 4 Comments

I am utilizing as many tools as I can in January to get back those healthy habits that went to the way side over the holidays. It obviously feels good physically to eat healthy, but it is also great for my mentality when I’m making healthy food choices, then tracking my success. Visualizing success can be great for the mindset.

After discovering the Blue Dots on the WW App (a way to chart days in a healthy eating zone), I’ve challenged myself to earn a Blue Dot every day for the month of January.

It’s been a great first week!

I worked early at a couple of WW meeting yesterday morning. When I say early morning, that is no joke. I left my house at 5:45! You would have thought that would have sent me to bed early on Friday, right? Nope. I stayed up way too late watching TV and playing on Instagram. Needless to say, it was hard to get out of bed and I didn’t leave myself enough time to make breakfast. I’m not sure I would have wanted anything that early anyhow.

I grabbed an RXBar for later.

I worked two meetings, then went to my mom’s house for coffee. I had earned a FREE pastry on my Panera card, and I knew my mom would appreciate it, so I stopped and grabbed her a cinnamon roll. While there, I bought a banana and an apple for myself, along with a black coffee. I do love their Hazelnut coffee.

Mom had this beautiful cinnamon roll (each bite dipped in her coffee!!), and I had my fruit and coffee.

I spent about an hour and a half in my exercise room at home doing Yoga, arm weights and some time on treadmill. I don’t work out as hard at home as I do in a class room, but it felt good to play around in there and take advantage of the space.

Happy Sunday!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

I don’t want to get into a habit of eating these daily, but they really do come in handy for an easy meal on the road!

Pumpkin Spice RXBar

 

Snack – 0 SP

Banana, Apple and Black Coffee

 

Lunch – 9 SP

Whole Foods Salad Bar. Chicken, Greens, lots of Zero Point veggies, a few root veggies, pico and guac.

 

Dinner – 18 SP

A friend of mine sent me  a salmon recipe via one of these videos floating around on Facebook.

I made two pieces in case Mike wanted to try it. Salmon isn’t really his thing. He wasn’t interested. It was so good, I ate the second piece too. Don’t worry, he had a great big bowl of Fall Chopped Salad that we both love.

Salmon, Fall Chopped Salad and White Sweet Potato Rounds, and an additional un-pictured piece of salmon.

What Why and How

January 7, 2017 — 4 Comments

It was a successful week in my Weight Watcher world that included attending my personal Weight Watcher meeting yesterday morning. I have not made attending my own meeting a priority and it felt good to be there yesterday.

We talked about our Weight Watcher What, Why and How. When asked What our WW goal was, many of us, including myself, said “Health”. Then we were asked what that means. It was a different answer for many of us that answered Health. For some it meant taking less medication or no medications at all. For some it meant physically being able to do more. For some it meant better numbers from the Doctor’s office. For me it meant having more energy and feeling happy in my body. When asked How we would accomplish our goals, we were reminded that that had to happen in our minds. We all had to make the decision in our heads to accomplish our goals, then act on it. For me the How is all about planning and tracking.

I walked out of yesterday’s meeting feeling really good about this last week, and looking forward to next week.

Last night I went to a friends house for Happy Hour. We’ve made it a fairly regular ritual on Friday nights over the years. Last night we drank coffee and water and had zero snacks. We had the same great conversation that we typically have with our wine, but it was a calorie free evening and I came home feeling great.

Here are yesterday’s eats…

This was one of my strangest food days ever! Healthy, just strange.

Breakfast – 0 SP

An Apple immediately after my WW meeting. Nothing strange here, except for the fuzz in my apple from my glove.

 

Lunch – 2 SP

Okay, here’s where it gets strange. I met my dad at Panera. I almost didn’t order anything because I am trying to eat most of my meals at home and I really wasn’t very hungry. It was cold and I decided that soup sounded good. I ordered the Chicken Soup.

I’m trying to eat mostly protein, fruits, vegetables and raw nuts and skip on some of the other food groups until I get my holiday weight off. I’m used to making soup without the noodles, and honestly forgot that it was Chicken Noodle Soup until I picked it up at the counter.

I ate everything but the noodles. I know, I’m weird. I’m in the Zone, people.

 

Snack – 4 SP

After a few errands, I was now starving and headed home. I found this Mini Larabar in my purse! It’s all whole foods. Yay for healthy snacks!

 

Snack – 10 SP

When I got home, I heated up a bowl of Butternut Squash soup, and ate the whole thing with a side of Plantains.

 

Dinner – 12 SP

After Coffee Happy Hour, I came home and heated up a plate of food from random things that I found in the fridge. With points still leftover, I had an RXBar and hot tea.

A Good Winter Day

January 6, 2017 — 6 Comments

I love to watch the snow fall, preferably from my house while sitting by the fire while sipping on coffee. Yesterday I watched it snow as I drove down the interstate in rush hour traffic. I’m a working girl now ya know.

I worked at an early morning WW meeting and it was a great training opportunity. The new year brings in new Weight Watcher members, and knowing what to do with a new member when they walk in the door is kind of important. I was happy to have the opportunity to train and to meet so many nice people, but also happy to be back home in my warm house by noon.

After a few hours at home, I thought it might be fun to bundle up and take a walk on the trail in the snow.

 

This girl will go for a walk with me just about anytime I ask. It was a tad chilly!

 

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 8 SP

I was running out the door, so I made a cup of coffee to go, and grabbed a couple of bites of chicken.

I know it sounds like a strange thing to eat first thing in the morning, but I’ve learned that you don’t have to eat certain foods based on the time of day. 

 

I also grabbed this Apple Cinnamon RXBar to have in the car with my coffee. These bars are made with whole ingredients, and I knew that the protein would keep me full.

I really do like these RXBar’s and I’ve been surprisingly good at saving them to eat as a meal and not eat as a snack. Success! #NSV (You guys, that’s a Non Scale Victory!)

 

Lunch – 6 SP

For lunch, I had a Breakfast Bowl. Chicken for breakfast, Eggs for lunch.

Scrambled Egg Whites, White Sweet Potatoes and Veggies topped with Avocado.

 

Snack – 6 SP

The last few bites of Chicken Salad with a few Plantains.

 

Dinner – 9 SP

Roasted Cauliflower, Asparagus, Chicken Breast and Butternut Squash Soup.

I really wanted soup after a chilly walk outside. The Weight Watcher Butternut Squash Soup is so easy and has just a few ingredients. Butternut Squash, Apple, Onion, Vegetable Broth and a few seasonings.

I added one cup of diced Sweet Potato to the recipe and I loved the way this tasted. I poured it over chicken and topped it with Bacon Crumbles and Avocado. Mike really liked it too!
