Weekly Weigh In

Whoo-hooo!

Down another 1.5 pounds.

Total lost-16 pounds.

Only one more pound to reach my Weight Watchers goal (may shoot for another 5 pounds, but I’m keeping this goal official to get my life time status).

This week, I tracked everything before I ate it.

Eye opening, one bottle of iced tea (which I was craving) was ELEVEN points-only had a few sips as I figured out the points and it quickly went down the drain.

I had my Shakeology this week, bulked up meals with vegetables from our local farm, only bought one ice cream at the farm that all four of us shared (honestly, it was just enough to have a taste of that rich ice cream) and exercised 5 out of 7 days.

Workouts:

Sunday: 21 DF Yoga

Monday: 21 DF Total Body Cardio

Wednesday: Beach Body Country Heat

Thursday: Beach Body Shift Shape Strength

Friday: Elliptical Rolling Hills program

I also treated myself to a new FitBit Flex 2 (my Fitbit was having problems charging and tracking properly).

Recipes:

I made one of my staples, SkinnyTastes Korean Beef (I don’t have Gochujang, so I’m not sure how it would taste with it, but I really like it made without).  Good with brown rice and veggies.

I made Mac & Cheese from this recipe.

Not sure why, but it just wasn’t cheesy, meaning nothing truly melted and melded together.

It made SO much mac & cheese, that I froze an uncooked casserole.

When I cook that portion, I’ll definitely mix much more during the cooking time.

I figured 13 ww points per serving for this recipe.

I plan on making the mac & cheese recipe from my WW cookbook, this one adds in cauliflower.

I am determined to hit goal next week, wish me luck.

Have a good week!

    Good luck!!! You can totally do it! Keep up with the workouts, that is the key to getting the weight off permanently! 🙂 How’s that for cheer-leading? 🙂 I’m so happy for you to have lost the weight. I remember how wonderful a feeling it was when I steadily lost pounds. I know many people who have been really successful on WW, is this something you’ll have to maintain, I mean, always be counting points even after you reached your goal? Just curious, does the exercise feel like a daily habit now? I find that I just don’t feel well if I don’t exercise every day. I don’t do as much as I used to, but I do weights twice a week, yoga/stretching daily and a long hike with the dogs in the woods at least 5 times a week. If I don’t do my workouts, I get so lazy and my digestion suffers.

      In the past, working out was very much a part of my daily life. I did feel sluggish if I didn’t do it and I didn’t sleep well. I have decided that any form of exercise is good for me, rather than being strict and saying it needs to be a hard weight work out, etc. Somedays, a nice 45 minute walk alone is both physically and mentally exactly what I need. I am trying to incorporate weights and once a week yoga though-I need to build my flexibility. This will be a lifestyle for me (as far as the WW points). However, it really does get you to realize portion sizes and eventually you know the point values of your go to foods.

      I have to say, I really like my meeting every Saturday! The people are nice and very supportive and its “my hour” each week.

      Thank you for your cheer-leading!! 🙂
