Challenge Day 4 — Holiday Party Oops

Challenge Day 4 — Holiday Party Oops

It’s Day 4 of my 5 day Challenge week — where I’m taking photos of everything I eat throughout the day. Today, I made quick work of lots of leftovers but also had to attend a holiday function that was described as a Pizza + Dessert Holiday Party.   Breakfast I started my day with more egg cups and PB toast — I’m all about eating things up before shopping again.  I enjoyed these 0 SP egg cups with a…

Weigh in Wednesday — 12/6/17

This week’s Weigh in — 189.0!    AHH! I had stepped on the scale the other day and was still reeling from that 195 flashing on the scale.  Last Saturday I was 192.6 (up from 189.4 just a few weeks ago).   What went well this week? This week, we stuck mostly to the meal plan and I used the new Weight Watchers Flex/Freestyle! Packing my lunches for work was a really good idea — and the Big Ass Salads for…

Meal Plan Monday #1 — Week of 11/26 -12/2

Today makes week #1 of me trying the newest Weight Watchers Plan for 2018 — either Flex or Freestyle depending on where you live.  Technically, I weigh in on Saturdays so my weeks should start then, but it’s easier for me to plan from Sunday to Sunday — so that’s sort of what I’ve sketched out. I have 15 weeks until my competition — and my eating needs to be dialed in and on point until then.  Having a deadline really…
