Eat More, Lose Weight??

I had a really good night’s sleep… was relieved to wake up with no headache! :)

I powered up with a huge protein breakfast of lean turkey sausage, roasted veggies, and egg beaters for 4 pts…

**I headed up to the gym and walked 30 minutes of inclines followed by a 1 hour Body Pump class**

Picked up a few things at the grocery store while drinking Honey Milk Light – 4 pts

Hungry Girl was on Dr. Oz on Monday… it was a great episode where she talked about eating more to lose weight.  One of her tips is to bulk up your meals with extra veggies for a more satisfying meal…  (that was my goal for breakfast and it worked) Her claim to fame is her ability to “bridge the gap between the average junk-food diet and the idealistic way of eating perfectly healthy at all times.” She provides the happy medium.

I was re-motivated to try some new things. I used to eat Boca Burgers all of the time, but kind of forgot about them over time. I was reminded of them and decided that would make a good/different lunch – 5 pts

I also picked up a box of VitaTops for a fun 3 pt snack…

Late afternoon protein waffle with strawberries – 5 pts

Butternut squash fries prepared like THIS – 0 pts

I experimented with another Hungry Girl idea…. Taco Bell style mexican pizza – 6

I volunteer on Wednesday nights at the church in the youth program… there were cookies tonight and it was hard not to eat one… so I had a bite – 1 pt

Came home and made frozen banana soft serve like THIS – 0 pts

The weather here was awesome today!! I hope you all had a great Wednesday! :)

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
