Tuesday’s Treats — and an early morning!

Tuesday’s Treats — and an early morning!

This week is Thanksgiving week!!! So the food based treats are flowing!   Breakfast at a greasy spoon Even though my break has technically begun, hubby’s hasn’t — but we had to get his car in for a estimate before the holidays kicked off for real.  That meant we had to wake up early and go one morning and today was that day.  We woke up super early and drove in for an estimate — only to be early and…

First Monday after a crazy eating spell!

First Monday after a crazy eating spell!

What the heck happened? I’ve been doing weight watchers Points Plus for the past 7 weeks — and I’ve noticed a startling trend.  Here’s what I saw: Not a single week was “perfect” or on plan!  NOT ONE! Mind you, my weight has still been trending downward — but each week I battled the binge!   I tracked everything I ate in both MyFitnessPal AND in my Bullet Journal (as a food log), and MFP shows that “on plan” is…

Weigh in Wednesday — 11/1

Happy November everyone! I’m happy to report that even though yesterday was Halloween, not a single piece of candy passed through my lips! WOO! It really helped that we decided to not pass out any candy — which meant that we didn’t buy any.  No candy in the house means no candy in my mouth! Candy is one of my trigger foods — once I eat a single piece (of junky candy) I just want more and more (I’m talking…

Why do things never go as planned?

Why do things never go as planned?

No brunch Our favorite brunch place was closed for renovations!?!?   How could this be?  We checked their website and social media accounts THAT MORNING as well as the night before and there was NO indication that any closing of any kind would be experienced.   Instead we tried a new place — and it was overpriced and not very good.  Later in the day I experienced some tummy troubles that could only be caused by that meal 🙁  …

My weight this week: I was so pleased when I stepped on the scale this week and weighed in at 190.4.   That means its working!   What are we eating? We are still eating mainly from out Family Foods List — we’re just going to keep on going.   We haven’t been perfect — but it’s super encouraging that hubby is coming up with ideas for heathier versions of whatever he’s craving.   Meals this week: A few of…

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It’s Weigh in Time!   I have to admit, when I stepped on the scale today I was a bit disappointed — I weighted 194.8 when last week I weighted 194.4.  To me, this is like a gain of 0.4… but then I remembered I use Happy Scale for this very reason.  I had really low numbers most days last week, but after camping and feeling poopy my weight shot up.   My moving average is 193.5…

Tuesday’s treats — 10/3/17

How is it already October? Does anyone else feel ambushed by Fall? I just know that as soon as I start writing “10” for the month, I’ll look up and Christmas will be here.  Going to VOW to make the most of my October and this whole Fall season before it’s too late!  As much as I love winter and all the family fun that holidays bring, I just don’t want to rush it. This week’s treats are geared totally…

Weekly Recap Like all my weeks, this one was busy! I’ve noticed that when I plan and start to prep, things come together a bit easier.  It also helps when hubby is on my same team.  Otherwise, it’s like playing soccer while he’s playing tennis.  Not even the same court/field. Accountability time! Check in time!   This week I’ll track calories and then the grams of Protein/Fat/Carbs… starting with my target. Target– 1700 — 134/60/178 Mon —  1555 — 117/53/158…

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Pumpkins, Pumpkins– everywhere! This week’s treats are somewhat pumpkin themed, but not intentionally.  I’m trying to embrace fall even though the temperature outside says it’s still very much summer.  Can’t let 90 degree weather stop me from enjoying all things pumpkin spice! First treat is for my house — a new tablecloth. It’s a small investment (this was a $3 Walmart special!), but it certainly does the job of bringing the “fall feel” into my kitchen.   Pumpkin Muffins! Once…

What a week! There was a combination of factors that I believe led me to a crazy roller coaster of a week. First, my period was this week — and it hit me like a sack of potatoes.  Second, there was lots of panic about Hurricane Irma coming and I was totally freaking out by mid-week… which caused a bit of stress eating.  Third, the weather really was crappy at the start of the week.  We had some minor street…
