It’s nice to see you, Friday!

August 14, 2015

This was a “fail” week in my Weight Watcher world. I didn’t track over a long weekend, and my workout schedule this week really sucked, except for the 6 miles and 700 stairs on Monday. (I swear I won’t mention it again.)

My WW week begins on Friday, and I’ve not been this happy to start a new week in a while. I will say, it can be so easy on day 7 of a bad week to just say screw it, but I kept within my points yesterday and talked myself out of going to buy myself a big bowl of frozen yogurt filled with little bites of candy bars and cookie dough, which I was really wanting for some reason.

Here are yesterday’s eats……

Pre-Breakfast – 1 PPV

Un-Pictured Frothy Coffee

Breakfast – 5 PPV

Oatmeal with 2 T. PB2, topped with Banana Slices and Blueberries. My smiley face looks more creepy face!



Lunch – 6 PPV

Leftover Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boat.



I put this in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, and it heated up great in it’s natural bowl.



Snack – 0 PPV

I wanted frozen yogurt, but I talked myself out of it and came home and made this.

One Frozen Banana and a splash of skim milk in the food processor until creamy. Then I added a few fresh strawberries and one packet of raw stevia.

Snack before and with dinner – 1 PPV

Caprese on a stick? So simple. So Fresh. Mozzarella Pearls, Fresh Basil, Cherry Tomatoes, Olive Oil drizzle and a Balsamic Glaze drizzle, finished with Cracked Black Pepper. 5 of these for 1 PointsPlus.

Dinner – 13 PPV

Blackened Tilapia, Grilled Zucchini with Parmesan, Caprese on a stick, shrimp, red wine.




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 = 6

Snack = 0

Dinner = 14

Total = 26


Exercise = nuthin’…again

Activity Points Earned for the Day = 0

Activity Points Earned This Week = 14

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 70


This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

I will choose one occasion per month for Social Drinking (um..this is a work in progress)

I will go no more than two days in a row without exercise. (I’ve done “two a day’s” to make up)

I will track every single day of the entire year. (I’ve only NOT tracked one weekend this year.)

I will run in a minimum of six 5K’s. Three down, three to go!

I will do better!

    Sorry about the sideways photo’s. I think I know how to fix that. Stupid computer….and a little user error. 🙂

    I’d eat avocado’s and guacamole on just about anything.

    Substitute raw veggies for chips and eat your guac as a dip. I like it on carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers…..

    I will always love it on omelets.

    Scrambled Egg Whites with Black Beans, a little cheese, all topped with guac. Yum.

    Sweet Potato, topped with Turkey Chili, topped with Avocado. More yum.

    Have you tried it on toast, then dipped it in a runny egg? Geeezzzz….now I’m hungry.

    Quinoa, Taco Meat, Chopped raw veggies of your choice all in a big bowl topped with Salsa and Guac. Seriously….I’m starving now.

    Hope this helps some.

    I’ll work some in this week and try something new for you?

    Happy and Healthy Weekend to you!

    Thanks so much! The blog has definitely helped me to get back into the game when I find myself wandering.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. The comments always mean a lot to me.


    Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!


  6. Man o man, you really did overwork those calf muscles, didn’t you. Glad they’re easing up. Next week will be a great week! Question for you, I’ve never really cooked with or eaten avocado but bought some individual cups of guacamole today from Costco. How would you use these? Thanks in advance – Pam
    Ps. Your photos are sometimes sideways on my screen lately.

  7. Here’s to the weekend–I hope yours is good.
    I love Saturday.
    Good saying today.
