Hump Day Happenings… ;)

Guess What???  I gave all of our Halloween Candy AWAY! I just couldn’t believe how much it bothered me not to be able to eat as much as I wanted. Rather than let that control my brain for the next few days, I just decided to get it all out of the house.  The boys didn’t even care… thank goodness!  I donated it to the church to be used for an upcoming activity. Yay!!  So glad I don’t have to think about that anymore!!

Managing your environment is one of the Healthy Habit Guides that Weight Watchers promotes.

Managing Your Environment means…
Really looking at your environment: your car, kitchen or desk and remembering the three R’s:

  • Recognizing the foods that will help you—and the ones that won’t.
  • Removing the items that you are sure will get in the way of your weight-loss efforts.
  • Replacing the foods you’ve removed with healthy ones like fruit and vegetables.

My Fire Bites:

Started my day with a whey protein fruit smoothie – 2 pts (Similar to THIS but with whey protein powder instead of greek yogurt)

Then headed up to the gym for some cardio…. Did about 15 minutes of this treadmill interval work out until I met up with Carman… We then did 30 mins on the bike and 30 mins on the elliptical…  Worked up a good sweat!

Had my all time favorite protein pancake… I know you see a lot of these on here, but they are sooo good!!!  5 pts (HERE is a link to some of my favorite ways to enjoy the pancakes)

Had this little 2 pt snack…

Yes, still working on the good stuff!  6 pts

Turkey chili with spinach and covered in pico… 5 pts (Click HERE for another way to make the Turkey Chili using spaghetti squash instead of spinach)

Egg with more pico… 2 pts

Pizza Quesadilla – ran out of spinach, so I added turkey pepperoni, red pepper strips, and fat free mozz cheese – 4 pts

Skittles – 4

Banana soft serve sprinkled with cinnamon – 0 pts (HERE is how I make this)

That’s all she wrote for tonight….. I’m out… Zzzzzzzzzzz!!!

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!
