I Didn’t Eat the Pie

December 15, 2016

Yesterday started off with coffee at a friends house with a few girlfriends. I walked in the house to the smell of coffee and this…..


I LOVE Pumpkin Pie. Are you kidding me right now?

I just had coffee.

After some good girl chat, I was home to prepare for a Weight Watcher meeting. We have to lead two meetings after training that we are critiqued on, then we’re good to go Lead meetings! For some reason, I was a nervous wreck about leading yesterdays meeting. I just didn’t feel as prepared as I did last week when I did my first meeting. I was overthinking everything.

I went to the meeting. It was an At Work meeting. Here is the funny part. The meeting was at an office park where we take the food truck once a month throughout the year. I knew the people!

“Hello, I’m Julie. I’ll be your WW Leader today. Yes, I also serve you Burgers at the Food Truck that are approximately 35 SmartPoints. Maybe order the Taco’s without the tortilla.”


Only four people were able to stay for the meeting due to schedules and holiday deadlines, but they were super nice, we had a great connection and the 30 minute meeting flew by quick! I felt like it was a good meeting and they walked away prepared to manage their week and future Food Truck visits. lol

I can now sub for other Leaders and I will hopefully get my own meeting soon!

I’m ready!


Later in the afternoon, I finished up some Christmas things on my “to do” list.

I made these little treat bags for stocking stuffers. Aren’t they cute? I bought the bags at the Dollar Tree and I filled them with Trina’s Pumpkin Spice Granola!

At around 6:00, I changed clothes and headed out to a Hot Yoga Class. With it being so cold here, Hot Yoga felt great!

After Yoga, I heated up some leftovers for dinner and snacked on a few carrots.

I can’t even right now.



I kept myself busy right up until about 11:00 pm, then headed to the ariport to pick up Tess and Manuel. We got home at 1:00 am, and I don’t think I was asleep until about 2:00 am.

Today is actually going to be fairly chill. No schedule. No place to be at any certain time. Just enjoy the kids and the Holiday Season today.

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Breakfast – 2 SP

Un-Pictured Banana at home and Coffee at a friends with Creamer

Lunch – 9 SP

Salad with Mixed Greens, Rotisserie Chicken, Egg, Apple, Pecans and homemade dressing.



Snack – 5 SP

Larabar Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate

Dinner – 10 SP

Turkey Burger topped with Smashed Avocado, leftover Sweet Potato Fries and leftover Roasted Brussels Sprouts tossed in the skillet with some Red Onion and Olive Oil and a Berry Bowl.


Make it a great day!

Right now…..I need me some coffee!

    You are right Nancy. So many food challenges coming up! I’m ready!

    My carrot. Cracking up.

    I did put it into the Weight Watcher Recipe Builder and 40 servings (approximately 1/4 Cup) is 5 SmartPoints. It is so good! I made this for a Family Fall get together and everyone loved it!

    Because it is a bit high in Smartpoints, I think it is best when added to something else in an even smaller serving size.

    Topping for pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt or even mixed in with my Warm Cinnamon Apples?

    I know if you make it, you will love it! And it makes the house smell so good while it is baking!

  3. That’s a really good picture of yourself.
    Good for you not eating the pie–there will be so much more food in the next two weeks.
    The picture of the carrot made me think –but the only thing I’ll say here is that it’s one weird carrot–lol.

  4. Hi Julie, The granola recipe sounds really good. Got any idea what the smart points value and the servicing size would be?
