What I Ate and Weigh In Wednesday

Happy Wednesday friends!  We have made it halfway through the week.  Thank goodness.  I do look forward to my weekends.

This is my first time participating in What I Ate Wednesday!  Let's get right to recapping the eats with breakfast; egg whites, low fat cottage cheese, and watermelon.

3 weight watchers points plus

I made a shake to take with me to work for a morning snack, but I only got to drink half of it.

1 WW points plus

This is a super simple shake: 5 ice cubes, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup of unsweetened chocolate almond milk...blend. Yum.

Lunch was a bit of a challenge.  It was one of those ordered in work lunches, which can always be trouble.  Luckily I got to pick what they ordered for me, so I chose a Caesar salad with grilled chicken - dressing on the side.

20 WW points plus

Okay, let's talk about a win, there were chips in the box as well that I did not eat.  There was also a cookie...a chocolate chip one.  It was delicious.  Another win?  I recorded it.

My afternoon snack was a small V8 and some Terra chips.

5 WW points plus

It was grocery store night at our house, so dinner was kind of random.  I had light egg salad (made with nonfat Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard) and left over roasted broccoli.

8 WW points plus

It was an interesting combination, but it was tasty and got the job done.  I finished the day on plan with my weight watchers points.  Happy dance.

Now for my weigh in.  I gained .3 this week.


I did a little ranting yesterday about water and bloating, if you care to hear about it.  In short it is that time of the month for me and I usually run from the scale at this time.  I am trying to stay positive about the .3 gain and look forward to possibly hitting the 10 lb mark next week.

The non-scale victory?  I squeezed in a workout before the grocery store last night, despite feeling lazy and unmotivated.  Go me.  Today I feel much better!

I hope you have a great day!!

  1. You were on point with your meals yesterday! Fantastic! AND all of your meals looked yummy. That's important too.hehe ;)
    I'm like you, I tend to run for the hills when it comes to TOM and the scale. I bloat up like nobody's business. A .3lb gain is great! I usually gain even up 3lbs during that time. Congrats on squeezing in that workout before store. That's how winners do!

  3. I wouldn't worry about 0.3lb. My weight can fluctate a pound or two between days, depending on what I ate the night before, how my tummy is feeling, ToTM. I'm sure you'll see a great loss next week.

    1. I keep telling myself not to worry...but I was so close to 10 lbs and so excited to see it on the scale. There is always next week! I need to try and celebrate non-scale victories more. :)
