A Full Full Saturday

January 23, 2017

I didn’t make it to my own Friday WW meeting, so I ventured out and went to a meeting that I have never been to before. I got out of bed at 6:00 am so I could go watch my friend, Antonia, lead a meeting at 7:00 am.

She did a great job and I was so glad that I crawled out of bed at the crack of dawn to go. Really, I was.

When the meeting was first getting started, Antonia asked a question and I was all happy to put my two cents in. No surprises there, right?

After I answered, the very sweet lady beside me looked at me, tapped my shoulder, and said, “I know you! You’re The Weight of my Weight! You’re Julie. I know all about you. You have a daughter named Tess. You’re a new WW Leader. I know you!”

Hi Mary Ann!! You are the sweetest!

I often wish that I could meet my readers in person, so It was nice to be able to do just that! We chatted after the meeting for a bit. She said that she really liked my food pictures and that I gave her ideas for what to eat. That is one of the biggest things that I hope to do for my readers. Give them ideas for tasty meals that are easy to make and that are point friendly. Mary Ann, you made my day! For so many reasonings, I am glad that I got out of bed early and made it to that meeting. 

Great Job Antonia! You can read all about Antonia in this blog post, My Bad Ass Friend.

In the afternoon, I went to a baby shower for our fifth grand baby!


My mom went with me!


Jordan is glowing and got all sorts of great gifts!

The shower was perfect.

When I got home, Mike and I decided that we needed a date night. I swear that we hadn’t done anything date-like since New Years Eve!

We went to church, then to dinner (at a bar, where I drank hot tea and gallons of water), then to a movie. 

We saw Hidden Figures. Such. A. Good. Movie.

Great date night!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 9 SP

I cooked my veggies in Cooking Spray. I weighed out 20 g of cooked pork sausage. I weighed out 30 g of cooked Sweet Potato, I added 1 Smartpoint for the maple syrup in the sausage recipe and the rest is pretty clear if you are a WW member counting points. 

Veggie hash with just a few crumbles of Breakfast Pork Sausage tossed in there and a little Sweet Potato, all topped with a soft Boiled Egg. I added a side of Fruit and tried to add in a variety and topped that with 1 T. of Almond Butter.


Lunch – 8 SP

Leftover Baked Chicken Fingers, leftover Whipped Cauliflower, Apple rings with Cinnamon, Cocoa nibs and a honey drizzle.


Snack – 8 SP

Two of these amazing Dates. I’ll tell you more about these in my next post.


Dinner – 13 SP

Salmon Caesar Salad, Hot Tea and Water

I forgot to say no cheese and no croutons, but I did get the dressing on the side.

I took all of the croutons off and ate the cheese. It was DELISH!! I used about 1 T. of dressing. The salmon was great, so I was satisfied and ready to go to the show!

    You two did have a fancy-schmancy date weekend! I love it! That car show!! Holy cow…I think Mike watched as much of it as he could. There are some great cars that go across that stage! What did you two buy? lol

    I’m glad you liked The Crown. I thought she a great job in that roll. Loved it all.

    My scale is not reflecting my blue dots like I had planned!! Not giving up though.

    Hugs to you friend!

  2. Oh, here again, Our parallel lives ๐Ÿ˜ … my husband and I had a date weekend! It’s been a long LONG time since it’s been just him and I ! After grand babies and kids moving far away – all our free time goes to visiting them or doing things with them. This weekend was nice. We spent the weekend in a fancy- schmacy hotel and it feels so good to say that after 34 years we still enjoy each other’s company ๐Ÿ˜Š AND also comfortable enough with each other that half of that time he was in one room watching more of the auto auction on tv (after us spending all day there !!) and I was in the adjoining room, propped up on that fluffy bed with a jillion feather pillows binge watching “The Crown” (loved it) ๐Ÿ˜œ …. guess that’s what helps us get along!!!! LOL. Oh and we ate lots of yummy food – now back yo the blue dots!
