I cannot believe that the year is half over and tomorrow marks the start of my July Simply Filling Month New Year’s Resolution! I am actually looking forward to challenging myself to get Simply Creative with Simply Filling this year. I think this week will also mark the Grand Finale of my deadlines and life should go back to normal (fingers crossed!)
For all those wondering, here is a recap I did last year for how I work the Simply Filling Technique and the “rules” I’ll be following this month. I do post my tracker to show both methods since I have followers who use both programs. For those counting Daily Points+, I show it as # Points+ for each meal. For those following Simply Filling, I will show SF + # WPA if there are any WPA used for non-simply filling foods.
All that being said, I am ready for some good, clean, healthy eats and getting back into the kitchen cooking. I finally braved the scale this morning heading back to my Weight Watcher’s meetings and I am proud to say that my gain was not as big as my head made it think. I am up 2.4 lbs. but in all honesty, I’ve earned it with our Vegas Vacation and pretty much taking the month off from my usual eating and workout routine. I feel mentally ready to get back into my groove.
Since The Husband is waiting for me to watch Grown Up’s with him, tonight’s post is going to be quick ~ a couple of weekend highlights & this week’s menu.
One highlight from this weekend ~ This super cute Fruit Salad my sister made for my other nieces baby shower – Love it!
