January Challenge, Day 14

January 15, 2015

I’m not gonna sugar coat this and I’m not gonna lie. I kicked ass yesterday in the healthy living department.

I ate some really great food. I drank a lot of water and decaf hot tea. I walked 3.4 miles outside and then I went to Jazzercise and had an awesome workout!

Now I am off to Dallas! I’ll be blogging, counting points, exercising, drinking water, NOT DRINKING alcohol, cooking good stuff with my kiddo, and spending some quality time together!

Okay….food.

I cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot yesterday using this recipe. So easy. Who knew? After the chicken cooked, I added a little chicken broth and a few potatoes and carrots. Dinner is served!!

I bought a bunch of these….

I feel like I cut into a lot of avocado’s that are not good! These have very few ingredients and they are 3 PointsPlus for one container. 1/3 of a container is plenty for me when I’m wanting to top a dish with smashed avocado’s. I’ll still plan on eating my avocado’s, but these are great to keep in the fridge for when I’m disappointed with a bad avocado, or when I just don’t have any around.
 
 
For the month of January, I am not eating the following items.
Gluten
Dairy
Red Meat
Soy 
Corn
Sugar
Artificial Sweetness
Alcohol
 
Here are yesterday’s eats…….
 

Breakfast

Pancakes topped with Warm Cinnamon Apples

4 PPV

I usually make several small pancakes with this batter, but yesterday I made one big one. Then I had to divide it into four in order to flip it, so make small pancakes. It’s just easier. Sometimes, I’m dumb.

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.

I have an allowance of 49 extra points that I can dip into throughout the week if I choose.

I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

My Weight Watcher Week Begins on Friday’s

 

Breakfast = Pancakes (4)

Lunch = Quinoa Burger, Carrots (7)

Dinner = Chicken, Potato, Carrots (9)

Snack = Smoothie (4)

Total = 24

Exercise = walked 3.4 miles, 60 minute Jazzercise

Activity Points Earned for the Day = 12…Maybe more…my app was very generous with the Jazzercise Points, so I took a few off.

Activity Points Earned This Week = 23

Activity Points Remaining This Week = 23

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 72

Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 42

 

This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

  1. I will choose one occasion per month for Social Drinking
  2. I will go no more than two days in a row without some sort of exercise. (unless I’m sick)
  3. I will track every single day for the entire year. No matter what. I’ll track if I eat 26 points, I’ll track if I eat 76 points.
  4. I will RUN in a minimum of six 5K’s

    That was super sweet! You just made my day!

    Thanks Nancy!

  2. I clicked on your Apple wrap recipe and oh I’m making that one.
    BUT I’m so glad I did you have a treasure of recipes and daily sayings.
    SO I’m going to go through your past postings to see what I have missed.
    I keep little photo books and write down on index cards those inspirational sayings to keep me motivated–I’ll have a lot of cards to fill in now.
    Hope so many more find their way to your blog.
