5 Week Challenge…Day 29

June 26, 2015

It was a super busy Wednesday with a little Food Truck fun, followed by a jazzercise class, then an evening with my Bookclub girls poolside. I had a really great evening sitting around the pool with the girls, but I ate and drank way more than I should have. The girls made a yummy drink with White Wine, Limoncello and Sprite Zero, and it was going down really well. There were two delicious dips, and my mistake was not eating dinner before I went, and then standing around the food instead of making a small plate and walking away. 


Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 7 PPV

Blueberry Pancakes, 1/2 Banana with 1 T. Almond Butter, Frothy Coffee




Lunch – 7 PPV

Tuna mixed with 1 T. Dill Pickle Relish, 1 T Mustard, 1/4 C shredded carrots, 1/2 chopped Apple in Lettuce Leaves, Carrots with Hummus and Feta. Apple Slices. I ate the entire large can of tuna, but it was a lot of protein and only 5 PointsPlus for the tuna. This was a really yummy lunch!



Dinner – 32? Guessing is better than not knowing at all.

I found this little palm tree idea on Pinterest, and thought it was super cute. I could NOT get the green pepper to stay on top of the carrot, so I super glued it! 🙂 I wanted to take something fun to bookclub. No women were harmed by the super glue.

While there, I drank a yummy drink made with White Wine, Limoncello and diet Sprite. I also had Fruit, too many Crackers and too much Dip, and a handful of Peanut M&M’s. I felt like crap when I woke up Thursday morning. My ankles were puffy and I was bloated.


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 ate and drank too much, and I stayed up too late…..but I really had a great evening!

    I hate the swelling, but have had it all of my life.



  2. Super glue that is so funny but the picture is wonderful and so worth the glue.
    You had the extra points and that is what they’re there for.
    As for the swelling–my legs do that in the evening when I sit in one place for a long time.
