5 Week Challenge…Day 22 & 23

June 19, 2015

Due to limited time, due to computer issues, due to me not knowing much about computers, due to my lack of patience in learning, I’m keeping this post short. 🙂

I registered for 5K number three for the year. My goal is to do 6. Yay me. Whoo Whoo!



I’m getting my miles in AND….I went to Jazzercise on Thursday night.


I had a great day on Wednesday, but my food plan did not go as planned. This cutie, Nina, is leaving the food truck to go to Norway for a year, maybe longer, and this was her last day working with us, so we had a little Sangria fun after work.



Here are Wednesday’s eats…..

Pre-Breakfast – 1 PPV

Frothy Coffee



Breakfast – 4 PPV 

2 oz Cooked and Smashed Sweet Potato, one egg, fruit



Lunch – 3 PPV

Fruit and 8 oz Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt



Drinks – 14 PPV

Sangria and a beer! What the ????????



Dinner – 5 PPV

Two Corn Tortilla’s with one Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge, Shredded Carrots and chopped avocado. Not too shabby.



Breakfast = 5

Lunch = 3

Drinks = 14

Dinner = 5

Total = 27


Here are Thursday’s eats…

Breakfast – 2 PPV

6 oz Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt, Peaches. That’s all the yogurt I had left. Loving this stuff.



Lunch – 5 PPV

Scrambled Egg Whites, 2 oz. Potato, 1/4 Smashed Avocado, Salsa



Snack – 5 PPV

Leftover Shredded Chicken with 1 T Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt mixed in to make it creamy, with a few shredded carrots mixed in, topped with 1 T yogurt and all tstuffed into a bell pepper. Carrots on the side.



Dinner – 13 PPV

More fun from my SkinnyTaste Cookbook. I made the Spicy Black Bean Burger and Sweet Potato Fries. Deeelish, as always from her cookbook.



Breakfast = 2

Lunch = 5

Snack = 5

Dinner = 13

Total = 25


Exercise = Walked 8.5 miles the last two days and 1 Jazzercise Class

Activity Points Earned for the Day’s = 15

Activity Points Earned This Week = 35

Activity Points Remaining This Week = 31

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 100 each day

Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 0

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. Two down, four to go!


Sorry for the short and boring post!

Have a great weekend!

    Those are tough weeks when you’re not sure exactly where you’re at on your points. I’ve done that many times. I guessed on a lot of things yesterday for Father’s Day. I think the best thing to do is plan for the rest of your WW week to eat your minimum daily points and drink lots of water. That’s my plan for Monday thru Thursday this week. Egads….easier said than done though.


    Have a great week and thank you for taking the time to comment!


  2. Your posts are not boring at all! I really also look forward to your daily thoughts and menu! I’m doing WW and am mad at myself – had a new batch of 49 points and went to a wedding and am so clueless about how many to say I used, I may just better say I used them all!grrr

    When you said, “You pack a lot of life into each day”, that really made me smile.

    Thanks, Nancy, for always taking the time to comment. I look forward to reading what you have to say, and you’re always so sweet!

    Ha ha. Thanks! It’s amazing what you can put together when either… a) You only have a few points left for the day, or b) You REALLY need to grocery shop!

  5. I love your fillings for the corn tortilla. It never occurred to me to put shredded carrots in one. My stomach just lurches at the thought of eating any more lettuce! How quick and easy. Thanks for posting your meals. It sure does give the rest of us different menu options!

  6. Congrats: you pack a lot of life into each day.
    Good picture of the three of you–sorry to hear you will miss your buddy but what an incredible adventure she is on–hope everything goes well for her.
