5 Week Challenge…Day 6

June 2, 2015

On the 1st of April, I got a cortisone shot in my left shoulder. I have rotator cuff tendonitis and a partial tear in the rotator cuff. (I had rotator cuff surgery on the right shoulder 2 1/2 years ago.)

The shot gave me relief for about 5 weeks, then its slowly been wearing off. My last Yoga class was super uncomfortable. Today I went in for shot number two! I’m taking a break from Yoga and Jazzercise (again), but should be good to go by Thursday or Friday!

Finger’s crossed for no more surgeries, but I’m not feeling very optimistic about that!



I did however get in a good 5 Mile walk!



I got a few more Instagram followers yesterday that got me to 1000!! I feel this ridiculous pressure now to make something that looks super kick ass in a picture, is low in points, and taste amazing!! I feel like a teenage girl that just got a bunch of “likes” on a selfie! What a dork.



Have a great day!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Coffee – 1 PPV

Frothy Coffee



Breakfast – 4 PPV

Sweet Potato Quinoa Burger on Toast with 1/8th of an Avocado. 



Lunch – 12 PPV

This Miso Salmon topped with Pickled Cucumber slices, served over quinoa and veggies with a side of edamame at Houlihan’s was a delicious surprise!



Snack – 3 PPV

Banana with 1 T. Almond Butter. You can’t really take an appropriate picture of a banana. Maybe I’m just immature. Yep. Thats it.



Dinner – 6 PPV

Scrambled Egg Whites, 1/4 C Cooked Quinoa, 1/4 Black Beans, 2 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges, Salsa, 1/4 Smashed Avocado with Lime Juice and Salt (my favorite way to eat avocado’s!)


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.

    Ha ha. Yes. Take it easy when your body tells you to do so!

  2. After 40 it’s patch, patch, patch and getting old is not for wimps.
    In real life you hit a detour sign you find another path.
    You did today and your body thanks you for it!!
    Now if I can only listen to my own advice–ugh–lol.
