A Lotta Chores, a Lotta Snackin!

July 28, 2015

After a morning Hot Yoga Class and a trip to the grocery store, I spent the rest of the day at home completing a long list of chores and fighting the snacking bug. As I write this, I remember that I didn’t get in all of my water, and I should have been drinking water instead of sticking my hand in the cereal box!

I am NOT doing a great job of only eating 10 of my Extra 49 Weekly Points. I have not eaten all 49, and I will earn a lot of activity points by the end of the week, but I really would like to get through one week of only eating 10 of those points and exercising a lot and see what the scale does. Dang it!

Here are yesterday’s eats……

Breakfast – 4 PPV

8 oz Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt with Vanilla Stevia Drops and Cinnamon, topped with Blueberries, Strawberries, 1/2 of a Peach and 1 T of Vanilla Granola. This was YUMMY!



Lunch – 4 PPV

I had the TV show The Chew on in the background while doing my chores, and they cooked an egg in half of an avocado in the skillet. It sounded and looked delicious. I decided to see if I could make it, but a little more point friendly.

I cooked one egg in a slice  (20 g) of avocado. You can see the avocado shape under the egg. You add a little water to the pan and put a lid on it to speed up the cooking of the egg, and avoid burning the avocado.

I also had half a peach and a banana with 1 tsp of Almond Butter and a sprinkle of Chia Seeds.



This was really really good. It just needed some toast for dipping!



Snack – 3 PPV

Tuna Salad made with Light Mayo, Mustard, Pickle Relish, S&P, Chopped Apple and Shredded Carrots, in lettuce leaves.

I like to bulk up my tuna salad with zero points shredded carrots and a chopped apple. I love the crunch and the sweet. Water chestnuts and onions are always great options too!

This was a great afternoon snack because not only does it have protein in it, all that crunching makes it take a little while to eat.



Snack – 0 PPV

Fat and Juicy Grapes



Snack – 2 PPV

Raw Walnuts and Raisins



Snack’s – 5 PPV

I kept dipping into this box in the pantry. Such a no no! I should have measured out what I was eating. I hope I only ate a cup of it.



Dinner – 11 PPV

BBQ Pork Sandwich with Jack Cheese on a Light Hamburger Bun with Zucchini Fries and Watermelon.

I bought one of those packaged and seasoned Pork Tenderloins. I have never made one of those and liked it so I’m not sure why I keep trying. They taste dry to me. In order to make it taste a little better, I added BBQ sauce and cheese and put it on a bun. I ate half of it. It was blahhhh. The Zucchini Fries were yummy and the watermelon juicy and sweet!

Even though I didn’t eat it all, I’m calling this dinner 11 Points just in case I ate more cereal than I think that I did. ๐Ÿ™‚



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.

    Ha Ha. Yeah, probably not a lot of activity points in scissor work, but at least you are busy and not snacking!!!


  2. The only thing that is keeping me from snacking is that I have a million things to cut out for school and you can’t do that with dirty fingers
    (pretzel sticks are the only thing I’ve found.)
    Think about all those calories you are burning with all that work–I on the other hand will not be burning up calories with my scissors–ugh–lol.
