Weekly Weigh In & Good Eats

Weekly Weigh In
 As you may remember from my previous post, I decided to do a reset on my weight tracker at Weight Watchers. I truly believe that was the mental shift I needed to get myself back on track. In fact, I was down 4.4 pounds this week at my weekly weigh in. w00t!!

It feels so awesome to be making forward progress and working toward my goals. Part of that obviously includes healthy eating and I’ve definitely be doing that! Here are just some samples of the things I’ve been eating over the past couple of weeks.

I discovered a couple of new flavors of Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt. (Side note: a little birdie told me on Twitter that there would be more new flavors coming soon!) They were both really yummy, but the Boston Cream Pie was definitely my favorite of the two. 2 PointsPlus

I made a plan of attack for Memorial Day to make sure I didn’t go off track. The plan began with hitting the grocery store and stocking up on lots of healthy food.

I got the recipe for the coleslaw last year from my friend Tracy. It’s awesome! If anyone is interested in the recipe, you can find it here posted on my Facebook page.

Of course, now that summer is upon us, you know what that means … watermelon season! My favorite time of the year when it comes to fruit. )

Of course, there’s more to weight loss than just healthy eating. There has to be some activity involved as well, right?! My activity levels have definitely been down since getting home from vacation because I’ve been dealing with a case of bronchitis. I didn’t let that stop me though, I just slowed things down a bit and listened to my body. Part of my recent activity has included a couple of virtual events with Jost Running. I walked the Brave New World 5k and, since I wasn’t up to walking a progressive half marathon, I opted to put in my miles on the stationary bike instead.

So, that’s the recap of how things have been going for me lately. I know some other folks left comments here and on my Facebook page saying they thought they would pull a reset as well. If so, how are things going for you? Hit me up in the comments below.

Until next time …

    I have been searching for The Priairie Schooler Christmas Trees #82 and saw on your blog on December 19, 2006(!!!!) that you were able to purchase it. I am desperately seeking this and inquiring if you would be willing to sell it, or loan me the copy. I have contacted Prairie Schooler and they are unable to assist.
    I realise this is a huge request, but just goes to show how much I would like to do these beautiful Christmas trees.
    Many thanks, Margaret (Australia)

      Thanks for your comment, Margaret. Unfortunately, I’m not interested in selling the chart and I’m afraid I don’t loan my charts any longer as I’ve been burned on more than one occasion by never receiving them back. I was able to buy the copy I have off eBay, so you might check there. I hope you’re able to find it as the designs in that chart are lovely!
