5 Week Challenge…Day 27

June 23, 2015

In the exercise department, I had a great day yesterday. I got a few miles in yesterday morning and I went to a Jazzercise class in the afternoon.


My morning started off so well. Before my walk, I ate an early and light breakfast. Maybe too early and maybe too light.

Sometime after I ate my lunch, I was thinking about the lasagne in the refrigerator that I made late on Sunday night. Mike and I had shared a piece and I knew it was delicious. I wished that I had just had some of that for lunch instead of the omelet that I ate. While I was thinking about the lasagne, and trying not to eat it, I ate part of a leftover biscuit from Father’s Day with a little honey on it. Then I ate a few raw almonds. Then I ate a few Chocolate covered almonds and put the rest of those down the garbage disposal. Then I ate a piece of lasagna. I had decided that I wouldn’t have any for dinner. Then I had it for dinner anyhow.

Ug. I’m still actually in a pretty good place as far as my points go, but that was not at all what I had planned for the day!



Here are yesterday’s eats…….

Breakfast – 2 PPV

Banana and Blueberries with 2 tsp of melted Almond Butter drizzled on top, Black Coffee. 



Early Lunch (11:00 ish)  – 4 PPV

5 Egg White Omelet, 1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge, 1/8 Smashed Avocado, Salsa



Snacks – 17 PPV

Un-Pictured  biscuit and honey, raw almonds, Chocolate Covered Almonds, lasagne.


Dinner – 9 PPV

No Noodle, Zucchini Lasagna from SkinnyTaste and a Salad. The only thing that I do NOT like about this lasagne, it’s hard to only eat one serving. This was sooooo good! The recipe makes 8 servings. One serving = 7 PointsPlus.


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’m sorry you had to have surgery. Sitting when you want to be up and active is so so hard! I hope you heal quickly!

    Those social activities can be such a challenge, but I try to remind myself that there will always be something going on, and that’s a part of life. And….having a full social calendar is a REALLY good thing!

    I like the “go out and have fun” idea! We all need to have a little fun!


  3. I did the same thing Sunday and Monday night but didn’t go over my points. For me it’s too much summer time–eating instead of doing the things I need to do–ugh. I should just go out somewhere and have fun.
    Maybe this helps us focus back on our goal.
    I hope you make your 125 miles!!

  4. Thank you for making me feel better – I went overboard yesterday yesterday and feel bummed this morning
    There’s always some social activity that I can’t be good at. At least you have major activity points – you are covered! I love love love to walk and workout but had foot surgery a few weeks ago and aren’t allowed to even walk very much yet.
