Menu Plan Monday 6-18-12

Weight Watchers is going great for me! I've lost 5.4 pounds so far. Yeah!  I've been a little off track the last couple of days but I expect that is more birthday party-related than anything else and I'll be back on track in no time.  Especially since I'm over my weekly points already and my weeks start on Friday!

Anyway, here is the meal plan that will keep me on track this week:

Monday - Chicken quesadillas with creamy salsa
Tuesday - Baked fish sandwich with spiced mayo
Wednesday - Caprese chicken, salad
Thursday - Burgers, potato, veggies
Friday - ??

Lunches:  Fruity chicken salad sandwiches

Menu Planning 6-11-12

Good morning all!  We are rocking the Weight Watchers life these last few days.  Counting points, figuring out what is high and low points. Yesterday I went into my weekly points for the first time, due to a baby shower and swimming snacks.  I'm glad I am accountable for those though, because otherwise that would be my normal daily tactic - just go over calories and don't worry about it!

Here are some ideas for dinners this week:

Monday - Penne with peppers and sausage
Tuesday - Sloppy joe, potatoes
Wednesday - chicken nuggets, veggies
Thursday - Taco salads
Friday - TBD

Weight Watchers 2012.

Hi all.

Well, we did it. We joined weight watchers - both my husband and I.  I get 31 points a day. My husband gets 69.  I ask you, is that fair? ;-)

Anyway, I'll start posting more health-conscious recipes because if I'm paying for weight watchers, by God we are going to make the weight loss work!

Tonight we ate Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets (4 pts), baked potato, broccoli cauliflower salad

I figured out quickly that sugary cereal is a bad choice for breakfast and that fresh fruit is free.  So I will be stocking up on pears and grapes and cantaloupe and strawberries, and anything else I can get my hands on!

I earned 5 points through Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred (evil woman!) and ate a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. Surprisingly, pretty good!

For the rest of the week/weekend, I would like to try (new breakfasts for sure):

Ricotta cheese chocolate chip muffins
Ham & cheese omelet
Quinoa and Apple Breakfast Cereal
Sausage Breakfast Wrap with Apple Chutney
