New Cook Books!

First Weight Watchers Meeting Of 2012

I went for a quick 30 minute run this morning +5

It was great to be back at our normal Weight Watchers meeting. Karen was on a roll this morning and really made the meeting fun! I have to say again that I love the tweaks to the new Points Plus program. One of the goals that I didn’t list in my new years resolutions… (but I have mentioned it before) is that I really want to get to 125 lbs! That would put me right in the middle of my ideal weight on the BMI chart. I’m hoping that the new changes to the program will help me get there!

Protein Bar at the meeting – 5

I lost .6 lbs since my last weigh in. It’s crazy to me that I have maintained pretty much the same weight for the last 7 months! I LOVE WW!

Tactio

I also purchased two new cookbooks! I got the new Power Foods Cookbook along with the Fruits and Veggies A to Z!

Protein waffle with raspberries and banana….. (third cup each of fat free cottage cheese, egg whites, and oatmeal…. 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon)

Found these at the store the other day…. Special K cracker chips… 30 chips = 3 pts

Cheesy eggs with pico – 5

Dreyer’s French Silk ice cream (half the fat) – 3

I posted over on dietSNAPS about Health Magazine!

Tortilla Pizza – made with turkey pepperoni, spinach, red peppers, and fat free mozzarella – 4

Whey protein fruit smoothie – 2 (Standard Process Whey Pro Complete 2 scoops, 1 cup frozen mixed fruit, 1 cup diet V-8 splash tropical blend)

Now off to do my 66 burpees for the day!

Points Plus 2012

Who’s Excited For WW 2012??? ;)

Today was awesome! I was really looking forward to going to my Weight Watchers meeting so I could get my new 2012 materials and hear about the “tweaks” to the Points Plus program. I had already read Danica’s Official Review and I was looking forward to getting that spark of motivation that I’ve been needing! I can’t believe it has been a year since Weight Watchers announce the new Points Plus program!  Little did I know HOW MUCH it would change my life!  Once again, I just want to say how much I love WW! I think lately I’ve gotten caught up in the holiday madness and I have just gotten out of the good habits I had developed over the past year! It’s ALL about moderation! You can still enjoy the holidays and eat healthy! You can still have sugar cookies….. you just have to account for them in your points! Today’s meeting definitely reminded me that I have the power to make good choices, control my environment, continue to exercise, experiment with new recipes, and keep striving to live a healthy life! It’s not always gonna be perfect, but it’s always better to keep trying!

Backing up to yesterday…….

Wednesday Fire Bites:

Cheesy Eggs W/ Pico – 5 pts

Zone Bar – 5 pts

I finally had a chance to go up to my husband’s office to get worked on. I was starving and lucky for me he had a bowl of butternut squash! One of my faves! (They had a meeting that morning and there was plenty of left overs from Whole Foods!)  -0 pts

He also gave me a new protein bar to try and I ate it on my way home…. :)  -5 pts  BioGenesis UltraLean Spice Bar

I ended up having breakfast for dinner. I feel like I have been running from thing to thing lately! I am helping out with the youth program at church on Wednesday nights now… so I wanted to make sure I ate something before I went… – 5 pts

…they ALWAYS have treats there and it’s so hard to resist!!! My youngest son ended up making graham cracker “gingerbread houses” covered in icing!……. Guess who had half the house???  Yep… ME!  I don’t know what it is with icing these days…. but I’m addicted!  Oh well…. it was good… moving on…
