Food, Food and Drink

Friday is my Weight Watchers weigh-in day.

This morning I stepped on the scale and I knew I would not be going to my Weight Watchers meeting to weigh in today. Last week I had finally hit 9 lbs lost and today I saw I would be getting a gain. Mentally I just wasn't in it this week. It was a very off week for me - I had commuting delays with my train and the teen's both had Dr's appointments and my mini me had soccer practice. I didn't meal prep this week, I didn't get the workouts in that I had planned - it was pretty much a train wreck of a week for me.

The thing I liked about the old Weight Watchers plan is that I didn't feel like I had to deprive myself of my favorite foods. I could eat them in moderation and still work them into my "points". I have been struggling with this new plan. I don't feel like I am "allowed" to eat the foods that I enjoy, even in moderation. I haven't tracked consistently in ages because I will inevitably end up eating one of the foods I used to be able to enjoy and end up using all of my points in one day and then I feel like I have somehow failed!

So during my non-tracking couple of weeks here's a look at some of the "good" and "bad" choices I made: 


Chipotle chicken burrito bowl
Chips & salsa

Buffalo Wild Wings

Sooooo good!

Smoothies with my mini-me

Uno's deep dish pizza with my hubby on a date

His and hers drinks on our date

Just a little bit fro-yo

Snacking in the car

Yucky 0 point cosmo mix

Korean bbq meatballs from Noodles & Company

Chocolate swirl loaf from Starbucks

Humongous turkey Ruben from a sandwich shop near work

More fro-yo with the kids

More Chipotle with the kids

Hubby putting his zebra cake in my fruit bowl (I ate the banana - not the Zebra cake)

Edible Arrangement at work

His and her snack chocolate pretzel snack bars - guess which one is mine

Chicken quinoa chili from Protein Bar

Sunday morning breakfast scramble

Yogurt parfait in the making

Weekend breakfast at home

A trip to Olive Garden

Sooooo yummmmm!


Trader Joe's Steel Cut Oatmeal

Expensive salad I bought for lunch

More coffee

Joe's Crab Shack!

Banana and a breakfast bar on the way to work

More coffee!

Co-worker made banana bread!

This week I'm going to attempt to log everything I eat and drink into my Weight Watchers app. I feel with a little discipline this week I can hit the 10 pounds lost mark at next week's weigh-in!
