I paired a few of those egg cups with a slice of toast (2 SP) and 5g of Peanut Butter (1 SP).     Snack — 3SP Baked these amazing 2…

Meal Plan Monday & A Challenge for this week!

Meal Plan Monday & A Challenge for this week!

It’s Monday!   It really doesn’t feel like it because starting today, I’m working from home — for the holidays! Final exams are given and scored.  Averages have been tabulated.  Final Grades have been issued.  It’s time for this prof to recline and relax. I’ll enjoy being a total sloth-hermit hybrid for the next few days… and then I’ll start prepping for our holiday travels! Meal Plan this week: Challenge — Photograph my meals! My plan is to double down the…

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…

Weigh in Wednesday — 11/29/2017

Oh boy did the holidays come down on me! Too Many Treats! AHH! I stepped on the scale the other day and was SHOCKED how much I gained in just a few short days.  Saturday I was 192.6 (up from 189.4 just a few weeks ago).  Yesterday, the scale said 195!!! WHAT??!?!?!   Too many treats — not enough fiber, not enough water, and not enough protein!       This Girls’ got Goals! My long term plan is to use…

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…

This week’s weight was exactly the same as last week’s weight.   +0.0    but also  – 0.0   Am I surprised?  No — this week was full of weird meals, dinners out, parties, and indulgences. Am I mad?  No!  Reflecting back on all the crazy eating we did, and the added stress of furniture shopping, I’m THANKFUL that I didn’t gain!   Re-evaluating and Adjusting This last week has made me want to do all sorts of cheating!  I don’t…

Tuesday’s Treats — Tiramisu!

Tuesday’s Treats — Tiramisu!

This week’s treat is homemade Tiramisu from the Abs Diet Cookbook! Here’s the recipe: All I did was follow the instructions — omitting the raw egg yolk (because I didn’t want to die of Salmonella) and the raw egg whites (instead I used whipped cream! YUM!)   It was AMAZING tasting! Much better after a night or two — the longer it set, the yummier it became!   Other food type treats this week include: Dove Dark Chocolate with Almond…

Weigh in Wednesday — 11/1

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…
