If it isn’t obvious, or if I haven’t made it clear, Blogging and Babysitting is not NEAR as simple as I had thought! My “21 Day’s of Simple Weight Watcher Meal’s” took me about 30 days, due to day’s where I didn’t have time to get a blog in, or we ate out, or I didn’t plan well, or we had a celebration where dinner was included, and even if I kept within my points, it didn’t seem right to make “Party Food” a part of my 21 Day Plan, so I thought it’d be fun to drag it out as long as possible!!!
That was possibly the longest sentence that I have ever written!
I’m going to be taking a few day’s off (possibly 2 week’s) from the blog.
This is my last week to watch Charlotte, and next week we are taking a trip with some friends to Wine country! I am so looking forward to this trip!
When I come back home, I need to regroup. I need to refocus. Not just on weight loss, but on my life. I’ve been in a bit of a fog for a couple of month’s now and I just can’t seem to focus on much of anything. Sometime’s, the simplest decisions seem impossible and I often find myself staring into space with my thought’s. Life feel’s so big and overwhelming sometimes. For me, I know it’s time to take it all down a notch. I’ve been thinking about the best way to do this. So, I made a list. (I know….surprise!)
I put things on my list in my life in order of priorities. The list includes my health, my family, my friends, my dogs, my blog and several other things that fill up an average daily life. I’m going to take a break from the blog and all social media, and focus on getting myself back to where I need to be. I hate to take such a long break from the blog, but If I’m not at my best, the blog really isn’t doing me, or anyone else any good.
21 Day’s of Simple Weight Watcher Meal’s
I’ll put together a blog post that will include my “21 Day’s of Simple Weight Watcher Meal’s” so it is a simple reference to go to when looking for something fairly quick and simple for breakfast or dinner.
I also plan to make a Page on my blog, under recipes, called “Favorites”, where I will list my “Go To Meal’s” that I’ve come to love due to simplicity and flavor!
My lunch is usually leftover’s or a salad, so the 21 Day Plan was really about finding a variety of food’s (or a variety of way’s to eat foods) to eat for breakfast or dinner, while keeping between 26 and 30 Daily WW PointsPlus.
For the most part, these meal’s are made at home, but I did include a few day’s where one meal was at a restaurant. Weight Watcher’s totally work’s if you eat out, you just need to plan for it.
I hope that you were able to find a few simple and tasty “Meal Idea’s”!
I included THREE omelets during the 21 day’s, each with different fillings.
5 Egg White Veggie Omelet
with Onions, Mushroom, Bell Pepper’s
and 1 Slice Kraft 2% Cheese
1 Packet WW French Vanilla Smoothie Mix
2 T. PB2 Chocolate
1/2 Frozen Banana
1 Cup Cold Water, 1 Cup Ice
Leftover Quinoa Bowl with corn added
1 Beef Taco, 1 Chicken Taco
with 1 T. Guac and 1 T. Sour Cream
Weight Watcher’s Points Plus
I can eat 26 PPV a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.
