The Working Woman……

September 1, 2016

You guys…..I’m just being silly, however….I did enjoy a full day yesterday that involved blogging in the morning, working at the Food Truck yesterday afternoon, then working at a Weight Watcher meeting last night. I have loved being able to blog and work at the food truck over these last few years, but being able to add Weight Watcher Leader to my week, somehow makes me feel complete. I feel very fortunate to have the jobs that I have. Each one brings a different happiness and excitement to my week.

I love my blog because it has become such a part of my routine and it helps to keep me accountable.

I LOVE working at the Food Truck. Being at that order window chatting away with the customers and handing out tasty food, makes me happy. I have a great time with my co-workers, and I never thought that a job would be so darned much fun!

Finally being in training to become a Weight Watcher Leader has so much meaning behind it for me, I’m not sure I can find the words to express how I feel about it. Fulfilled is at the top of the list.

I need to change up the blog just a little bit due to schedule and time allotment. (I’m a Working Woman!) I’ll explain more tomorrow the small blog changes that I am making. You probably won’t even notice the difference, but I feel the need to explain myself…..on pretty much everything. lol

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Breakfast – 7 SP

Oatmeal had become somewhat of a trigger food for me with all of the things that i was adding to it. I am trying to bring it back into my diet once a week or so, and only use smashed banana (or other fruit) to sweeten it with. It is my hope that staying away from sugar and artificial sweeteners on a regular basis will help me to continue to not have cravings, but still enjoy some oatmeal once in a while. I am also going to try just a half of a serving, and add in some protein instead of just having a big bowl of oatmeal.

Half serving of Oatmeal mixed with one smashed Banana, topped with warm Blueberries and Almond Butter. 5 Scrambled Egg Whites for protein with a little Avocado.

Half of a serving satisfied my tastebuds just fine!



Lunch – 12 SP

Un-pictured bites at the Food Truck and this Chicken Sausage that I brought from home inside a flour tortilla with mustard, and an Apple.



Dinner – 9 SP

More Skillet! Love this stuff! (Bonus…If you have everything prepared in advance, the only dishes to wash are the skillet and plates!!)


These are my 2016 Goals

Make time each week to Meal Plan
Drink 100 ounces of water each day
Exercise 5 days a week
Three Meals and One Snack, Daily



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

    Hi Kendra!

    I am so glad that you made the skillet…AND that the hubs loved it! It’s a total man dish. Don’t ya think??

    I promise to continue to blog as often as I do now. I really can not imagine my life without this little corner of my world. It has become such a part of my routine. The last few days have been busy, and it drives me crazy when I can’t blog daily. I will keep it up, and hopefully just as often.

    Nashville is so much fun! I hope that you are able to fit it in! There really are many other things to do there besides bar hop, drink and listen to music. Ha ha. Great museums too! The music listening and beer drinking while doing so, just seems to be our favorite part!!

    I am SO ready for Fall. Cooler temps, Football, Firepits, Wine, Jeans and Boots and I LOVE Pumpkin everything!!!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I loved reading this.

    Happy Weekend to you and your family!

    Thank you so much Ronda!!! And congrats to you on reaching Lifetime!

    I can wait to get my own meeting! Wish you were here!!

  3. Hi Julie! It sounds like you have been very busy! I just made a version of your skillet and my hubs loved it! I love cutting up vegetables and having them in the fridge. But like you, I’m a working woman too and time is so limited during the week. That’s what I love about these long weekends, as you have time to do these kind of things. I’m worried that with your new schedule you are going to tell us that you are going to have to cut back on the blog. Oh no! I so look forward to it! Your trip to Nashville looked like so much fun! You have convinced me to book a trip there! I would love to fit it in this year if we can. Hope you are looking forward to Fall as much as I am. It was so nice to wake up this morning (we live in upstate NY) and walk outside with my dog Lucy and it be 50 degrees out… so refreshing! The only downside is that now all the pumpkin flavor stuff is out! Yummy! there is nothing better than a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte! But the points are unforgiving! Lol! Hope you have a great Sunday! Can’t wait to hear what’s on tap for the blog!

  4. I am so happy for you meeting this long-time goal of WW Leader. I just know your meeting room will be packed.

    Awe. Thank you Nancy. You have been one of my most faithful readers for sure. I always look forward to your comments and appreciate the time that you take to send them to me.

    You have a great Holiday Weekend too! We’ve been so busy lately that I think we will just take this weekend easy. The house could use a little attention and someone needs to do some laundry! ha ha

    I’ve never heard of schools being opened on Labor Day? Three day weekend for everyone here!

    Enjoy yourself!

    Thank you so much Annamay! I am so looking forward to finishing training and getting started!

    Happy Friday to you.

  7. Look at all the incredible things that have happened since you started this blog. I can only imagine with Weight Watcher leader added to the list–that we will be even be more fortunate for having found it.
    What ever the changes might be I’m sure you are right that we won’t even notice them.
    Have a great holiday weekend.
    In the Cincinnati area Labor Day is a big deal but I’ve heard that in some areas of the country schools don’t even close on Monday???

  8. Congrats on the WW Leader gig! You have wanted it so bad, good luck! I know you’ll be an inspiring leader!
