It's Saturday!!

I am pumped that it's Saturday! Yay. A clean slate. My favorite day of the week..
I didnt check in at Weight Watchers today since I went on Tuesday. I will weigh in officially again a week from now because the tuesday meeting kinda threw me off. I want to go to meetings twice a week if I can, but keep my weigh ins on saturdays.

Yesterday I went to the supermarket and picked up a few things. When I was making the shopping list, I almost didn't know where to start. I had to look back at my August entries to get an idea of what I was eating when weightloss seemed so simple. lol. While doing that I realized a few things:
  • Back in L.A., I tended not to spend more than 5 pts on breakfast.
  • I did better with incorporating fruits and veggies
  • It's a hell of a lot easier to lose weight when all the food in the house is geared towards healthy eating
So this week the challenge to myself is to watch out on the breakfast points, really work with my fruits and vegetables, and ignore all the food in the house that isn't 'for me'

3 egg whites
2 slices bacon
sandwich thin
4 pts
Yea, I know the egg whites look a little crazy. At first I was going to make an omlet, but remembered that I was supposed to be cheap with my breakfast points so I just folded it up without the cheese.

I forgot breakfast

Hey everyone!!

Here I am - as promised.
I went to a meeting today. I know my usual day is Saturday, but I have been not counting for so long that I really needed the meeting to make sure that I tracked today.

I was so greedy today at breakfast time that I forgot to snap a picture.

FiberOne buttermilk pancakes
1/4 cup sugar free syrup
2 slices of turkey bacon
1 tsp olive oil
(not pictured)
7 pts

So for lunch I decided to try something new.....well not actually NEW new, since I made it a couple of days ago - I made HOMEMADE pasta!!!

With whole wheat flour, eggwhites, salt and basil! My sister randomly gave me this italian recipe book and I decided to follow their recipe for fresh pasta (i just made a few tweaks). It was honestly not the fastest process, but it was fun anyway. I hope someone buys me a pasta maker for Christmas.

3/4 cup whole wheat pasta
1 tsp olive oil
2 egg whites
sauteed squash and green pepper
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
7.5 pts
I LOVE IT! Ofcourse, a big part of it is due to the fact that I made it by myself from scratch.

kettle korn
1 pt

whiting fish fillet
1 cup brown rice
1/4 cup black beans
1 tsp olive oil
cucumber and tomato
8 pts

My time away from blogging and counting points has really made me realize something about myself - I don't like to NOT be eating when other people are eating.
Big deal right? No but seriously, I have noticed that even when I am "satisfied" the sight of other people eating makes me feel like "hey...i wanna eat more food too!" Its a really sad/annoying problem to have. I had to talk to the boyfriend about it. See, he is 6'4. Used to play football. So he pretty much eats whatever he likes. And when I am around him I tend to eat like I am a 6'4 man. Its my fault. I mean, I don't expect him to change his eating habits for my sake. But I dunno, it does something to me mentally when he goes for seconds and I "can't"......ugh. i am working on it.

On a brighter note, he has been encouraging me with my running thing. I hate running outside, but for some reason running with him isn't so bad. (see what stupid love will do to you?!?)
Okay that's all for now! Look out for me tomorrow!!

Total for the day: 23.5 pts

(waves timidly)


It's been over a month and I feel like it is prime time to get my ass back in gear. Please stay tuned for updates because I am determined to post again - and that means the good stuff as well as the bad and the ugly. Believe me there has been plenty of bad and ugly in the past month. In the time that I have been "away" I have managed to attract a couple of new followers.


Thanks for coming by and clicking that button. It means a lot to me and I promise to try and make it interesting....or at least get off my ass and post with a bit more consistency. :)
