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!


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.
Red Meat
Artificial Sweetness
Here are yesterday’s eats…….


Pancakes topped with Warm Cinnamon Apples


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.




Quinoa Sweet Potato Burger with Smashed Avocado 

on Gluten Free Bread, Carrots


I grilled this sandwich in 1 tsp of Chipotle Infused Olive Oil!

Love this!




Chicken Thigh, Chicken Leg, Small Potato, Carrots





Smoothie – DEE….LISH!!

1 C. Almond Milk, 1 T. Almond Butter, 1 Frozen Banana




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.
