5 Week Challenge…Day 8

June 4, 2015

We had one day of slightly blue skies, then right back to rain and thunderstorms. I have a treadmill, and I’m glad that I do for those snowy, winter days, but I would MUCH rather walk outside and soak up the fresh air! 

I sent my friend Becky a text to see if she was available to walk, and I’d say that 9 times out 10, she is! It makes this challenge so much easier knowing that I will usually have a walking buddy!

Just a few minutes into our walk, it started to sprinkle, then rain. We kept at it and decided that it actually felt kind of good! She’s pushing me to run a bit, so I’d say out of the six miles that we got in yesterday, at least of 2 of them were running! Yay!

I’m racking up some activity points this week!


Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 3 PPV

Trader Joe’s Bread, Toasted with 1/8 smashed Avocado, Egg Whites and Salsa, Orange, Black Coffee



Snack – 3 PPV

Leftover Red Onion, Zucchini, Sweet Potato. I ate it cold while working at the Food Truck. 🙂



Lunch – 5 PPV

This was the Skinnytaste.com stuffed chicken breast that I made Sunday night. It tasted great heated up with some crunchy carrots!




Snack – 2 PPV

Raisins and Almonds



Dinner – 10 PPV

Veggie Burger on a Chopped Salad, Spaghetti Squash with 1/4 C. Ragu Light Parmesan Alfredo and 1/3 C canned Peas.

I have been trying to eat very little processed foods and stick to the simply filling list, but I had a jar of Ragu in the pantry, and the combo sounded really good together! It was! 3 PointsPlus for the Alfredo, Peas and Spaghetti Squash. Mike liked it too!

I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.

    Thanks Chelsey! One of the things I like most about writing the blog is trying to come up with simple things to eat, that are low in points (or calories and fat), that I think other people might like too!

    When someone takes the time to comment, that makes writing the blog that much BETTER!! So thank you for that.

    I hope your journey to eating less processed foods is a tasty one!

    Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!


  3. Hi, I started following your blog about a month ago and I just want to say how much I enjoy it! I follow a lot of blogs, but I really look forward to reading yours. Thank you for your hard work! I don’t follow WW, but I try to eat the least amount of processed foods possible. Your pictures really help to keep me inspired on my own weight loss journey. Sometimes you just need different ideas on what to eat to keep going in the right direction. Thanks again, Chelsey
