My Typical Weight Watchers Day


I am a creature of habit. Once I find a recipe that I enjoy and love to eat… I stick with it for a long time… haha, you may have noticed.

I have narrowed down 2 or 3 things I like to rotate around for each meal… breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It makes it easier for me to keep within my daily points allowance, and because I love the foods I’m eating… I don’t feel restricted. I don’t always eat them in the same order, but I have a running list of things to choose from based on my mood. Sometimes I decide what to eat depending on how much time I have to prepare the meal.

A very typical day for me: 

5 pts – Protein Pancake w/ fruit (bananas, raspberries, pears, or strawberries) or 5 pts – Cheesy Eggs W/ Pico

3 pts – Greek Yogurt Fruit Smoothie or 2 pts – Whey Protein Fruit Smoothie

4 pts – Swiss Turkey Melt or 4 pts – Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

3 pts – Pop Chips

5 pts – Zone Bar

5 pts – Turkey Chili over Spaghetti Squash or 4 pts – Easy Tortilla Pizza

1 pts – Dove Dark Chocolate Square

I keep my water bottle filled up so it’s readily available for drinking throughout the day.

*If you work out, count your activity points and eat those extra points that day!*

More ideas:

3 pts – Dreyer’s Half the fat ice cream (I love French Silk) 1/2 cup

2 pts – Fiber One Brownie

0 pts – Roasted Veggies

3 pts – Banana Peanut Butter Soft Serve

4 pts – Pizza Quesadilla

0 pts – Butternut Squash Fries

Click on each recipe for the directions and amounts…. These are just things that I like to eat and it works for me…. you will have to experiment to find the things you like to eat….

If I’m running errands and stop to eat, I usually only go to Subway for a 6 inch turkey sub with all the veggies  and sweet onion sauce (no cheese) OR Chickfila for the chargrilled and fruit salad with fat free honey mustard.

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!

    Have you tried the Baked Oatmeal with blueberries and bananas for breakfast…or even for dessert? It is on the SkinnyTaste site. I usually make 1/2 a recipe as Rick doesn’t eat oatmeal. It is 6 pts for a nice sized serving and you can freeze the leftovers.

    Great post Lexy! I too am a creature of habit. Much easier than always trying to make decisions about what to make. Love that you shared your grocery list. Very helpful. This blog is #1 on my daily blog checks. Thank you all for great information & continued motivation.
