Feel Good, Be Positive

October 1, 2015

By not handling the unexpected very well on Tuesday, I sent myself into eating some of my activity points, which I wasn’t going to do this week.

Yesterday, I didn’t realize how little points I had eaten until I sat down to track my food last night. It seemed silly to eat something at 9:30 just to consume some calories, and I didn’t feel hungry, so hopefully the last two days will balance each other out nicely.

I didn’t get any exercise in on Tuesday, then yesterday I had time for a 5 Mile walk, and I mowed the yard.

I drank 100+ ounces of water yesterday, and while working at the food truck, I only had a taste of the Rueben sandwich that we tried out yesterday, then I ate the greek yogurt and fruit that I brought.

I think the week is ending great! I feel good, I feel positive.

Breakfast – 6 PPV

Blueberry Oatmeal topped with 1 tsp Almond Butter, Frothy Coffee



Lunch – 3 PPV

1 C Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt with Vanilla Stevia and Cinnamon, Strawberries



Snack – 4 PPV

Un-pictured Raw Almonds and Raisins

Snack – 0 PPV




Snack – 3 PPV

Banana with Un-Pictured 1 T. Almond Butter

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.

    Oh, I hope your weigh in makes you happy too Pam! I’m not able to make my meeting this morning, but according to my home scale (and it’s usually right on with the WW scale), I had a loss this week!

    Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!

  2. I’m hoping my Friday WW weigh- in makes me happy…I’ve had a healthy week, for me that’s a pretty big thing to say! Keep up the good work! — Pam

    I’ve decided that I would eat two of them for zero points, and if I ate any more than two, then I would count them. I’m going to start doing the same thing for banana’s. Maybe I will eat less banana’s now??


  4. I don’t know where you are on information on dates but Snack Girl did a blog today on one variety of fresh date.
    Glad you’re ending your week on a high note.
    I think it is easier to navigate the weekend when you start on a emotional high.
