Too Many Points…Too Little Points

July 29, 2015

Yesterday I was out of the house and busy. By the end of the day, I really had to work at dinner to get my points in, where as the day before I was at home all day and I ate more points than I needed to eat. It’s funny how the brain can work sometimes. One day, practically all that I am thinking  about is food and eating, and the next day, food and eating (or should I say overeating) is not on the brain at all.

I had a great breakfast yesterday and I headed off to work (doing food prep for the Food Truck this week) without a plan for lunch. 

We worked from 10-3 and I never really thought about eating anything, except for a taste of cheese. It was about 4:00 pm. by the time I made lunch at home. Obviously, I did not plan well for my day, food wise.

We didn’t have dinner until about 8:00, and I added cheese and extra bread to my dinner, trying to get in my points for the day. Not complaining here, because my dinner was a great big bowl of comfort food, but I do think it’s better to spread the points out throughout the day, and not eat almost half of them at 8:00 pm.

Anywho……I ate 25 Points yesterday, and everything I ate was really good!

Here’s a peek at my dinner!



Here are yesterday’s eats……

Pre-Breakfast – 1 PPV

Frothy Coffee made with Cinnamon flavored coffee, Cinnamon Stevia drops and sprinkled with cinnamon on top!



Breakfast – 4 PPV

Blueberry Pancakes with Banana Slices and 1 tsp Almond Butter. Yes, just as good as it looks.



Snack – 4 PPV

Iced Coffee with Cream. As I was leaving Food Prep day, some super sweet person made this for me just before I walked out into the heat.



Lunch – 5 PPV

2/3 C (150 g) Plain Greek Nonfat Yogurt with vanilla stevia drops and cinnamon with 1 Cup Blueberries and Tuna Salad.



Dinner – 11 PPV

Turkey Spaghetti over Spaghetti Squash with Parmesan Cheese and Alexia Garlic Baguette, which is sold in the freezer section and is amazing. Since I had points left, I had three slices instead of my usual 2 slices.



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 should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

    Yep. Being in school is probably helpful in keeping you busy. We accept our “not so great days” and we move on.

    Here’s to a great and healthy day for the both of us!!


  2. I had the opposite day I went out with a friend for lunch and then walked around the square.
    I ate pizza for lunch and every bite of it.
    Went next door to Grater’s ice cream and had a scoop.
    We did walk but not for long because it was in the 90’s.
    I used all 49 points.
    I do much better when I’m back in school.
