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…

Today’s Fire Bites!

Turkey Swiss Melt – 4pts

After the awesome WW mtg… Chickfila – 7 pts  (Got my hair cut and highlighted today!!)

Sample! -2pts

As soon as I got home, I was ready to start reading through my materials! Frozen Yogurt W/ Blueberries – 3pts

Turkey Chili W/ Spaghetti Squash and Spinach – 5 pts

And since I haven’t been to the gym since Monday… I met up with Carman tonight for a spin class… +10pts  Yay for an awesome work out!

(Plus 75 burpees when I got home to make up for yesterday and today! When will the burpee challenge end???)

Ran by the grocery store on the way home and drank Muscle Milk Light while I picked up a few things – 4pts

The biggest accomplishment of the day is that I DIDN’T EAT ANY COOKIES!!!  Woohoo!

What do you think of the new Weight Watchers 2012 materials!!?? Are you excited or annoyed???

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!
