Avoiding Boredom

February 9, 2015

Being back in a sling is a such an icky memory of post Rotator Cuff surgery two years ago. It was actually 2 years ago this week!

Mike said…”Well, at least you had figured out how to do most things with your left hand!”

True Dat!!

To avoid boredom eating yesterday, I kept really busy and had a successful eating day!

I did a lot, I just did it slow.

It was gorgeous outside, so I spent a little time on the deck with my mutts and grilled up some chicken breast for the week!



He soooo wanted some chicken to drop!


Later, Mike and I went to see American Snipper and then out to dinner!

I’ll be keeping these post fairly short. Typing takes forever, but I don’t want to skip a post!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..


Peanut Butter Oatmeal, Egg Whites, Black Coffee





Apple Slices





Butternut Squash Chili with Chicken





Hot Tea – No Beers



Salmon Caesar

12 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.

My Weight Watcher Week Begins on Friday’s


Breakfast = Egg Whites, Peanut Butter Oatmeal, Coffee (6)

Snack = Apple Slices (0)

Lunch =  Butternut Squash Chili (6)

Dinner = Salmon Caesar  (12)

Total = 24

Exercise = none (If you’re new here, I got drunk and broke my collarbone on Thursday. Yep, for realzzz)

Activity Points Earned for the Day = 0

Activity Points Earned This Week = 0

Activity Points Remaining This Week = 0

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 64

Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 0


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

    Thank you Amy! I feel like my meals have been super boring lately, but I’m glad you might be getting some ideas. I know we all eat very differently and I love looking at other blogs for meal ideas.

    Thanks for reading and thank you for taking the time to comment!
