A Quiet Day

October 6, 2015

Yesterday was a quiet day. The weekend was busy enough, I was due for a quiet day. I worked helping prep food for the food truck for the lunches that are scheduled for the week. After that, I really wanted to cook something creative and tasty for dinner, but for some reason my dinner creativity just isn’t there lately, so I didn’t cook. I didn’t do any exercise. Except for getting out of bed first thing, my back did feel better yesterday from my little weekend tweak, but then all of a sudden STAB!! I’d feel a huge pain in the back, and that was super fun. The weather was cloudy and cold, which for some reason makes me want to wear cozy socks, sit by a fire, listen to music and sip on red wine. It also makes me want to take a bubble bath, listen to music and drink hot tea or coffee, so I did that instead. A fireplace by my bathtub would be awesome! 

I’ve done a really bad job this week of eating, then tracking everything at night from my pictures, so I’ll think I’m in good shape and making good choices, then I realize I’ve eaten more food than I should have for the day. Now, I’ve eaten all of my 49 points for the week. I’ve been eating out a lot these last few days, so I am guesstimating on my points on several of my meals, so it’s very possible that I am OVER on my points. I’ve done a crap job on drinking the amount of water that I usually drink.

Today, i won’t eat anything until I track it first, I’ll do a much better job of getting my water in, I will cook dinner and eat at home tonight, AND I’ll at least get in a walk.

Now for cuteness……

Each night, Mike and I and both dogs usually all end up on the couch together. Before going to bed, Mike turns off the TV and I say…”It’s bedtime. Let’s go outside and potty” and eventually both dogs go outside. Neither had a desire to get down. Look at the sibling love.


Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 6 PPV

It’s a Happy Bowl of Oatmeal guys.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal and a Frothy Coffee



Lunch – 6 PPV

I put some chicken breast in the crockpot on Sunday with a few vegetables. It cooked all day so the chicken automatically fell apart and I put some seasoning on it, and it tasted…..very boring.



Snack – 4 PPV

Un-Pictured 1/4 C. Mixed Raw Nuts while prepping food.

Snack – 2 PPV

Yogurt. I usually like to mix my own yogurt snack, but this did make a great little sweet treat.



Dinner – 14 PPV

Another dinner out. Chicken Tortilla Soup with Sour Cream and 1/2 Grilled Chicken Sandwich


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

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 a few weekends this year.)

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

    Yep, this eating out as often as I have been has got to come to a hault! Egads…..

  2. Fall Break for me so what am I doing–going out to lunch each day.
    Next week will be really fresh food for me.
    At least you’re trying to stay in the ballpark–I’m just a little out side the fence.
