Yay me! That averages out to be 2.2 a week, which is still awesome. Still not really sure what was up with last week’s .2, but there ya go. Our regular leader was back this week. She’s a little scary. She’s totally into what she’s doing and supportive and stuff, but still….a little scary. And loud.
Let’s see, this past week, I only exercised for 3 days. But we went longer at least on the last day, so that’s good. I missed a day because I had to take Em to school. This week, I hope to get 5 in. In fact, after I write this, I’m going to do a short exercise video, I think.
For the other healthy stuff, I’m doing pretty well. I got all my water in all but one day. I got the dairy in ever day. Fruits and Veg I got in 4 days. The other three, I didn’t do abysmally or anything, I just didn’t get it all in. I remembered the vitamin every day too. Oh, and the healthy oils. I got them all in 4 days, half in for 2 days, and none the other day. So for this week, I want to try to make it the full 7 for all of those.
I still feel like I’m eating way too much. It’s way easier to get those healthy checks in when it’s only the dairy and oil I have to “pay” for with points and since I seem to have so many points, it’s not been all that challenging. I did start feeling munchy this week and really just wanted to eat doughnuts. Or cookies. Or cake. Pick a sweet and I’d have gobbled it down. But somehow I resisted. I did make the mistake of having Chinese yesterday which is never a good idea right before a weigh in, but it turned out okay. Hopefully any retained water from that will show on next week’s weigh in! 🙂 Oh, and while I asked for brown rice, they gave me fried and instead of getting them to fix it, I just ate it. So that’s 10 of those weekly points right there! I ate lighter for the rest of the day and still totally stayed on plan, but using 20 points for mediocre fried rice was a very bad decision on my part.
Hmm, what else? Oh, I bought two cookbooks at the WW meeting this morning. They were half off and this was the last week of the sale. So I succumbed. I’ve had pretty good luck with WW cookbooks in the past, so I’m hoping these will be the same. I’ll be sure and share any recipes I find that are particularly good. For now, I’ll share my super simple staple chili recipe with you:
- 1 pound ground turkey, browned
- 1/2 pound ground beef, extra lean, browned
- 1 cup onion, chopped*
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons Splenda
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cans kidney beans, undrained
- 2 cups stewed tomatoes, Mexican-style, undrained**
