December 30th

December 31, 2016

I’ve been eating an abundance of sugar since before Thanksgiving, when all of the sugary treats started challenging me. 

I’ve now lead some Weight Watcher meetings and admitted to the group, that along with some of them, I fight the sugar demon and likely always will.

I un-decorated yesterday and cleaned out the fridge and pantry. I decided that I was ready for the New Year a couple of days early. I hated to wait two more days and give myself an excuse to over indulge.

I spent the day at home yesterday organizing and never did make it to the grocery store. I made a big thing of Tuna Salad, and that was my meal prep. We still had a few fresh veggies to add to our meals.

We started the Netflix series The Crown, and I have a feeling we are both going to be stuck to the couch for a few nights.

I’m back to tracking every bite and shooting for three meals and one snack daily.

Here are yesterday’s eats..

Breakfast – 4 SP

Egg White and Veggie Omelet topped with Smashed Avocado, Berries and 1 tsp Almond Butter



Lunch – 6 SP

Tuna Salad made with Mayo and Mustard, Cucumbers and Celery. Tomatoes and Carrots.



Snack – 7 SP

RX Blueberry Bar



Dinner – 11 SP

The rest of the Tuna Salad, Tomatoes, Grapes, Plantains


Total – 28 SP

Please be safe tonight and a very Happy New Year to you all!

    yay! Good for you for getting rid of it. I know it helps me to just not have it in the house. I am getting better about walking by the temptations in the store without as much difficulty as I used to have. It is not easier for me when I have it in front of me, but I do find it getting easier to not actually buy it.

    I am so glad you are watching the Crown. So interesting and I think all of the actors are doing a great job!

    Happy watching!

  2. Yes got rid of all of it!! It had to go!! One day at a time for sure! I wish I could say it gets easier but it really doesn’t… i just love your positive attitude! It’s just so appropriate that you’re a WW leader! Oh and I just watched the first episode of the Crown and I love it! Thanks so much for the recommendation!

    Sugar. Damn sugar! Why Why Why??? Do you do better if it is not in the house? I do SO much better if I don’t have to see it. I am so with you on the all or nothing thing too.

    So happy you are back on track. We’ve got this. One day at a time.

    Really enjoying The Crown. We are going to watch episode 7 tonight! Hope you love it too!

    Happy New Year to you Kendra!

    I love cleaning out the fridge! Did it feel so good? Were you able to throw food out guilt free?? It took me a long time to be able to do that, but now it may come too easy!

    I too love soup, especially if it is easy and cooks in the crockpot all day making the house smell yummy!

    Now all I can think about is soup!

    Thank you very much!

  6. Hi Julie, Happy New Year! This post is so timely for me as I have really been down on myself because I seem to have lost my willpower when it comes to sugar over the past few weeks… the sugar addiction struggle is oh so real. I applaud you for addressing it in your weight watcher meeting. Every year this happens to me and it seems to be an all or nothing thing. I can’t have one cookie, I have to have ten… so frustrating, it looks like you are back on track and so am I. All of the triggers have been removed from the house… I really am wondering if hypnosis would work as I truly believe it is an addiction. So glad to get back into the routine this week, that should help. I need to stop beating myself up over it and just move on. The damage is done.

    I’m thinking about starting to watch The Crown. I just read the preview and it looks really good. Only 10 episodes which is doable. What expisode are you on?

    Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2017!

  7. Ok you just guilted me into cleaning out the so called good stuff today instead of my planned cleaning tomorrow (school starts back on Tuesday). I guess it will be soup instead of the leftovers. I just saw a soup recipe for sweet potato and barley–I wonder if I can find it again.
    I really love soup–I just need to take the time to make it. Your egg plates always look so good–i might do an egg dish. I guess I’ll make a run to Krogers.
    Happy New Year!!

  8. Very nice! Enjoyed this so much. Inspiring!
