Um, ouch.

August 12, 2015

The 700 stairs on Monday really did a number on my calves! I decided I would be worthless at Yoga or Jazzercise yesterday, so I skipped them both. I had decided to do no exercise at all when I got this text at about 5:00 pm.


Damn. I knew it was actually the best thing for my muscles. It wasn’t a long one, but I did go on a 2.5 mile walk, and it was good to stretch out those muscles. This morning however, I could barely walk down the stairs when I got out of bed. What a wuss!!

Here are yesterday’s eats……

Pre-Breakfast – 1 PPV

Frothy Coffee on the deck! No humidity and it was wonderful!



Breakfast – 5 PPV

Light English Muffin, toasted, with Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge and fresh berries, Egg Whites and Salsa.



I’ll be having this Light English Muffin combo again!



Lunch – 8 PPV

Salad while working at the Food Truck. I’m loving Blueberries on just about anything lately!



Snack’s – 6 PPV

Love this crunchy little snack.



Snack – 2 PPV

Smoothie made with 1/2 C Skim Milk, 2 T. PB2 Chocolate, 1 frozen banana



Dinner – 6 PPV

Leftover from dinner the night before. Oven Fried Chicken with Honey Mustard Glaze, side salad and asparagus.


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.

My Weight Watcher Week Begins on Friday’s


Breakfast = 6

Lunch = 8

Snack’s = 8

Dinner = 6

Total = 28


Exercise = Walked 2.5 miles

Activity Points Earned for the Day = 3

This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

I will choose one occasion per month for Social Drinking (umโ€ฆthis is a work in progress)
I will go no more than two days in a row without exercise. (I did “two a days” to make up)
I will track every single day for the entire year. No matter what. (I’ve only not tracked ONE weekend) 

I will RUN in a minimum of six 5Kโ€™s. Three down, three to go!


Today, I am feeling……….


“love the life you live, live the life you love”

    Hi Ashley. I’m glad you like the blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think a WW Leader would recommend always using the Recipe Builder to be accurate, especially if it is a food that you are eating a few times per week. An extra 2 points on an item consumed on a regular basis could really mess with your weight loss/maintenance efforts for the week.

    If I’m tracking items individually, and my weight loss/gain/maintenance is going as expected, then I continue to track individually.

    I hope that helps.

    Two Salad dressings that I am loving right now are Trader Joe’s Cranberry Walnut & Gorgonzola. 2 T. = 2 PointsPlus.

    Ken’s Steak House Greek Dressing. 2 T. = 3 PointsPlus, but I think 1 T. is plenty.

    That Chicken was delicious and nice and crispy!

    Have a great weekend.


  2. still loving your WW based food blog! So, I still don’t understand why in the recipe builder the points are more than if you were to just put each ingredient in your tracker individually. For example your PB2 smoothie in the recipe builder is 5 points and if I just put it in the food tracker its 2 points. What do you go by?? Also, what salad dressing did you use on your dinner salad? looks delicious!! Thinking about making that chicken recipe this weekend!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
