Happy Sunday all! This morning started off with a quick weigh in at my Weekly Weight Watchers meeting. I usually do not get to stay for the meeting on the days we head to the antique fair because we go so early. I know I could skip it, but, there is just something with how that scale and being accountable works for me.
I guess I can’t be an inspiration to you all each week as much as I want to. I am choosing to NOT focus on the scale this week because I do not think it showed my effort. Instead I am focusing on what I did that was GOOD this week.
GOOD THINGS THIS WEEK:
* I worked out 5 times!
* I made HEALTHY choices and ate sensible portions every time I went out to eat this week (although I probably could’ve done it less).
* I drank my water and met almost every single healthy guideline each day!
* I tracked every single bite……
And, you know what….the scale showed me up .6 of a lb. I am OK with it because I think I already had a successful week based on all the GOOD things I did.
I have no doubt NEXT WEEK the scale is going to show my hard work because I plan to just Keep on Keeping On and working the program like I know how to.
Since I wasn’t hungry at all this morning, I never even brought breakfast with me. I did somehow manage to brew some coffee and get a Grande Dirty Latte with a banana (4 points+)
We spent the morning strolling through the Sacramento Antique Fair. I am pretty excited that I scored 9 magazines (all current issues ~ think Martha Stewart Living, Everyday Food, etc.) for $2.25 and an old Weight Watchers Cookbook for Pizza for $4!
I let The Husband pick lunch since I ALWAYS pick Jack’s Urban Eats. He was craving a BLTA so we headed over to The Joy of Eating.
I started with a simple side salad with Italian Dressing on the side (2 points+).
BACON ~ LETTUCE ~ TOMATO ~ AVOCADO ~ on Homemade Sweet Bread (10 points+)
I still wasn’t hungry much all afternoon ~ I WISH I KNEW what made me have days like this because I would definitely repeat them No worries, I am sure by tomorrow I will be back to my HUNGRY SELF.
Dinner tonight was awesome because it was GRILLED, involved 4 dishes and 2 AWESOME ingredients.
Remember this Smoky Apricot BBQ Sauce from last week?!
Plus my FAVORITE Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon. I STILL LOVE TJ’s even if they changed their stats and their bacon. The one by me is ONLY selling the thick cut peppered turkey bacon now so it’s 1 points+ a slice versus 2
Bring back the THIN slices since they are 0 points+ a slice
It’s still not 100% perfect since my packet has 10 slices, but, that’s ok, I consider it the bonus plan – more for less LOL.
Are you all ready??? We BUILT BBQ BACON CHEESEBURGERS!
Toasted sesame buns with a little BBQ sauce.
Grilled TJ’s 96% Beef Burgers topped with BBQ sauce and 1 oz LF Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
All the “fixin’s” ~ lettuce, onion, tomato.
BBQ, BACON, CHEESEBURGER ~ 10 points+
