Planning for a Successful Saturday

April 25, 2015

I worked at the food truck yesterday. I did NOT eat my breakfast late in the morning so I wouldn’t be as hungry when I got to the food truck, as I suggested to myself in yesterday’s post.  I was hungry as soon as I started smelling the burgers cooking. I did NOT wake up early enough to get any exercise in before working, and not only did I eat a little pork that I didn’t take a picture of, I also ate a little chicken salad and a bag of chips.

To top it off, we are babysitting the grandkids for the weekend and I have none of the food planned.

On a good note, my WW week starts on Friday and yesterday wasn’t the end of the world. My granddaughter took a mile walk with me and the dogs last night. I have a fridge full of plenty of healthy options, I just need to take the time today to prepare something for myself. I need to portion out whatever I do eat so that I’m not doing any mindless eating while hanging out with the kids, which is sometimes what I do when they are here.

Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts.

Looking forward to a fun day today with the kiddos!


Okay, here are yesterday’s eats.



Sweet Potatoes, Eggs, Canadian Bacon


Frothy Coffee





Chicken Salad, Chips

Un-pictured Pork

17 PPV




Salmon Caesar Salad




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 = Sweet Potatoes, Eggs, Canadian Bacon, Fruit, Frothy Coffee (9)

Lunch = Chicken Salad, Chips (13)

Dinner = Salmon Caesar (9)

Total = 35


Exercise = 1 Mile walk

Activity Points Earned for the Day = 1

Activity Points Earned This Week = 1

Activity Points Remaining This Week = 1

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 60

This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

I will choose one occasion per month for Social Drinking (um…this is a work in progress)
I will go no more than two days in a row without exercise.
I will track every single day for the entire year. No matter what.
I will RUN in a minimum of six 5K’s. One down, 5 to go!
