After a full weekend of two year old fun stuff, I had a big list of Thirty-Something not so fun stuff to get done for the last two days. (Ya see what I did there? Ahhh…Fine. Whatever. 49 year old stuff. Geezzzz.)
All items are crossed off of my list and that always makes me really happy. I mean, I have a new list for today, but the Monday and Tuesday list are completed. My big list left little time for blogging.
The next few weeks are going to be busy, so I will blog as often as I can, but my post may just include what I’ve had to eat and the SmartPoints Value of my meals. Blogging what I eat helps keep me accountable. If I knew that I wasn’t going to blog for say……a month. I think it would feel like an open invitation to eat whatever I wanted. Of course, I’d regret it, but when I know I’m blogging the details of what I am eating, it helps me to eat smarter. That being said, over the next few weeks I may not have time to ramble on about all of the silly stuff that I tend to ramble on about. Sad, I know.
You guys motivate me to make good choices and I thank you for that!
As I move down the road into the role of a Weight Watcher Leader, I’d like to vamp up the blog a bit and make it a little more professional. I would like for it to be more user friendly, I’d like to have more recipes in a more organized and professional manner. I have a few other ideas that I have up my sleeve. I may have to bring in a blogging professional!! 🙂
For now, here is my usual and unprofessional, but tasty eats for the last two days. Actually, one dinner wasn’t tasty at all, but the rest were pretty good!
Breakfast – 6 SP
I haven’t been eating Oatmeal for several months. I knew that it was a trigger food for me. All of that stuff that I like to add in made it taste like a big cookie! I feel like I really have a grasp on my snacking and grazing now, so I thought I’d bring Oatmeal back into my diet and see if it causes me any cravings or the desire to snack. So far, so good!
This was a half of a serving (trying to keep the SmartPoints lower) with 1/2 Smashed Banana, Almond Butter and Warm Blueberries mixed in. I did not add any additional sweetener and it was perfect! I added scrambled egg whites for some protein so I would stay full, and hopefully not have any cravings or desire to eat before lunch. Success!
Lunch – 8 SP
Leftover Chicken, Leftover Steak, Cucumbers, Avocado, Tomatoes, Red Onion, New Potatoes, Olive Oil and BalsamicVinegar
Snack – 2 SP
Berries and 2 tsp Almond Butter
Dinner – 8 SP
Ground Turkey, Black Beans, Carrots, Broccoli Slaw, Tomato Sauce, Vegetable Broth, Seasonings. I just made a big skillet. It taste about as good as it looks. Not one of my better concoctions.
Breakfast – 6 SP
The Basics…for me anyhow.
Lunch – 9 SP
Tuna Salad, Plantains, Carrots and Celery with Almond Butter
Dinner – 9 SP
Chicken with Honey Mustard for dipping, Turkey Burger Sliders, Asparagus, Tomatoes
