Looking at a Plan for the Week….

April 11, 2015

I went to my WW meeting yesterday morning in Jeans! I rarely do that, especially when I’m really looking for a loss at the scale. I weighed at home with my jeans on and off, and they weigh at least a pound. I usually weigh in wearing a pair of ancient and super thin, yoga pants, but I had plans for the day, and besides…. it’s fun to let the WW members know that I own some actual clothes. 🙂 I still had a loss at the scale! I was happy with how my weigh in went, jeans and all. I had a good week tracking and getting back into a bit of an exercise groove.

I know that sticking to those 26 points a day, and getting in activity, will eventually get me back into the 160’s. I dipped into the 49 Weekly Points a points a little bit, but not too bad.

Yesterday, day one of a new week, I went to lunch with some girlfriends for a birthday celebration. We met at the restaurant at 12:45, and left at 6:30!! Yep, that’s right….we were there ALL day long just chatting away and becoming BFF’s with out waitress, Julie! I did go over on my points for the day before I left the restaurant, and then I ate dinner too!

What does that mean for this week? It really wasn’t a great week for me to do that. I have a few plans this week that involve a social drink here and there and food prepared by others, so it’s going to be a challenge to not use up all those extra 49 points. What’s my plan? Exercise.

I went to my first official Yoga class this morning and it felt great! I thought I was going to a Yoga Level 1 Class, but it ended up being a mixed level Hot Yoga class. It pushed me, but I kept up and at the end of class, I felt great!

I plan to get in a variety of Yoga, Jazzercise and walking this week, get in lots of water, and just make the best choices that I can in the situation when it comes to the food.

I hope you all have a Happy and Healthy Week, and that you treat your bodies good!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

It’s the wine that did it for me………SIX hours is a long lunch!

 

Breakfast

6 Egg Whites, Salsa

2 PPV

See how smart I was here? I was planning for my afternoon……

Lunch

Carrots, Cucumbers, Hummus and Pita Bread

Red Wine….Lots of water

28 PPV

 I did order all veggies, and no pita bread with my hummus, but someone else at the table ordered all pita bread and no veggies, so I ate a few bites of his pita bread, then a few bites of someone else’s pretzel…..dipped in cheese! I have no idea how many glasses water I drank, maybe 5?

Dinner

Pork Bahn Mi Salad

11 PPV

The Food Truck that I work at decided to set up for some Friday night fun, so Mike and I went out to say “hi” to a few friends and have dinner. Totally forgot to take a picture, so I stole this from Beauty and the Bistro’s Facebook Page!

Pork, Pickled Carrots, Cilantro, Yummy Sauces and Jalepeno’s on a bed of cucumber’s!

    I know! Jeans? Happy it went well. 🙂

    I’m going to look for those dried apples. I’ve found a couple that I really like, but my favorite is the Bare brand. The only ingredient is apples, so a part of me feels like they should be zero points, but apparently WW wants them counted as points because they are a packaged processed food. Hmmmmm. When I open a bag, I eat them all. One bag is two servings and is 6 points. Maybe I need to look up the nutritional information on an apple and compare??

    I’ve not bought the Classico, but I would imagine they are similar and super point friendly.

    Okay, I’ll spend today on Pinterest looking for “Spiraled Veggie Recipes”.

    Happy Weekend Pam!

  2. Very brave wearing jeans…I usually wear Capri length worn out yoga pants ( and take off every thing possible!). Would love a veggetti post! I remember you added zoodles to pasta to make it bigger, I think. I hadn’t thought of Alfredo sauce on them but that sounds yummy. I like the Classico lite, 1 pt for 1/4 cup. My Friday weigh-in we talked about the Snapz crunch dried Apple crisps 0 pts and the skinny pop popcorn individual bags 3 pts. Have a good week–you are in the zone!
