When Danica sent me an email, asking if I could do a guest post for her…I was…well…really honored! My next thought was…”what on earth will I write about?” My blog is pretty much a cut and dry recipe/ ecookbook kind of deal. That just didn’t seem to fit into the format she uses, and I thought it might just be too boring for you to read. So I decided I would do a “daily” post…just like she does. Let me tell you….wayyyyy more work than posting about one stinking recipe! lol So hats off to all of you beautiful bloggers that invite us into your daily lives ( and take pictures of everything that happens) !
Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Renee, and I have a blog called MyKitchenAdventures. I have been a WW member now for over a year. I have not reached my goal yet, but I have lost over 25 pounds and have the key chain and the charm to prove it! I have had a few set backs with surgery and other life changing events…but I have never thrown in the towel. I am on no particular time table. I feel slow and steady is what wins the race. I enjoy cooking and baking and finding and creating low calorie, healthier foods that TASTE GOOD! I believe food that is good for you, should also taste good…it should stimulate your senses, and leave you feeling satisfied; not only in your body, but also in your soul. Living the WW way of life is a lifestyle choice and one that I am proud to say I have made for the rest of my life!
And now on to a day in the life of a 40-something WW…..
My day started with a cup of coffee…..nothing fancy…in one of my favorite mugs. Yes, I AM a proud mom of a Kent State University student! 🙂 I take it with just 2 TBS of fat free half and half. And yes, I still measure it out!
I was hungry when I got home…so I snacked on some shrimp and sauce while I prepared dinner ( 4 points+)
Dinner came together quickly. We had the burgers with fixin’s and while the boys had their burgers on buns, I chose to have mine on a bed of lettuce to save on points+. ( Costco also has the BEST shrimp cocktail platter!)
I also topped the burger with some tzatzki I bought from Costco ( 2 points+ for 2 TBS) and a few slices of avocado ( 3 points+) making this entire meal with the grilled zucchini come in at 9 points+.
And that was my day. I relaxed in the evening with my kids and hubby and dog and cat and had a WW string cheese for a snack later on….thus bringing my grand total for the day to 29 points+. I will admit, some days are harder than other to hit that magical number…that is for sure!
I hope you enjoyed “seeing” into my day and if you see those chicken burgers, pick them up…they are awesome!
Thanks Renee! I LOVE that you tackled posting a daily versus a recipe….it’s always fun to see how others work the program.
How about you? Have you discovered any healthier convenience foods lately?
