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…

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

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…

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…

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 🙁  …

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

For whatever reason, I could not settle my brain last night.  My thoughts kept leaping from one thing to the next without giving me a break to calm down and fall asleep.  I tried reading, watching brainless tv, sitting in the dark, counting sheep, and even some warm milk.   By 3 am I had tried everything — and even a grilled cheese sandwich snack — and was finally able to catch a few z’s.  Sadly, I was wide awake…
