Party Day!

February 5, 2015

I’m limited on time, so I’ll spare you all of the details of all of the thoughts of food and drink that I had in my head all day long yesterday!

I was hosting a jewelry party, and I had healthy snacks planned, and I was stocked up on Beer and Wine.

I started my day with a 30 minute Core Yoga class, followed by a 60 minute (standard) Yoga class, followed by a 75 minutes Stretch Yoga class.


I drank lots of water throughout the day.

If you read my blog regularly, then you know that I gave up alcohol for the month of January in an extra effort to get the scale going in the downward direction. It’s working for me..

At 6:00 pm yesterday, I could no longer stand the thought of the unopened bottles of wine on my counter top, so I opened a bottle. I poured a 6 ounce glass. I swirled it and I put my nose in the glass and inhaled. It was a beautiful thing. I took a sip. I took another sip. And then I simply sipped on that one glass of wine for the rest of the night. I filled up my water bottle several times throughout the rest of the evening.

It felt like a huge accomplishment.

I did snack all night long on too many almonds, and likely too many baked chips and guac. I am giving myself a good guess on just how many points I ate. The scale is cooperating with me this week, and I really don’t want to mess it up.

I won’t be able to go to my meeting on Friday morning, but I will be going on Saturday, and I’m hoping for at least a one pound loss, but more would be great!

Here are yesterday’s eats, with a guess as best as I can for the evening.



Peanut Butter Oatmeal

 Frothy Coffee





93% Lean Ground Turkey cooked with Garlic and Onion.

I then added Bell Peppers, Zucchini, 1 can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes.

Topped with Parmesan Cheese






1 C. Almond Milk, 1 C Frozen Blueberries

1/2 Frozen Banana, 1 packet Raw Stevia

Topped with a little Homemade Granola




Party Food


Too Many…..Raw Almonds, Veggies, Hummus, Baked Chips, Guacamole

Chunky Monkey Cookies

Red Wine 

25 PPV



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.
