I’ve been doing Weight Watchers Online for two weeks now. On weekdays, I do very well keeping up with my points.
Weekends . . . are tough.
The first weekend, I just didn’t really bother and . . . gained back two of the four pounds I had lost during the week. I was determined to do better this weekend.
Buuuutttt this weekend included a wedding, 18 hours of driving, and eating at places along the way where we could most cheaply feed our family of five. Ideally, and in a perfect world, I would have thought ahead and packed nutritious travel-friendly food, all weight watchers points would have been calculated ahead of time . . . and individual portions would have been measured in advance.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda. I don’t live in a perfect world.
So again, I didn’t really bother with point-counting for the weekend. And I feel it. I feel gross and bloated and the thought of burritos and burgers makes my top lip curl up.
I’m using that icky feeling to motivate myself to get back on track and not let things go . . . next weekend.
Meanwhile, the best bet I have for controlling how well I do this week is to make a menu plan.
Thanks to Kristen’s comment on my menu plan post last week, I found Skinny Taste, where all the recipes have Weight Watchers’ points. Woo hoo! And since I’m writing this while driving and am trying to use Hubby’s iphone data plan as little as possible, both of the new recipes I’m attempting are from that one site.
Monday – Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Mozzarella served with pasta. (New recipe!)
Tuesday – Chicken Fried Rice
Wednesday – Taco Soup
Thursday – Chicken and Mushrooms in a Garlic White Wine Sauce (New Recipe!)
Friday – Out to Eat
Saturday – Bagel Pizzas
I’m excited to try a few new recipes!
