Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

Well, i'd say i'm doing pretty damn good this week! i've been getting my treadmill in and my sit ups every morning... i've been doing REALLY well with the food and haven't used any flex points... on top of that i haven't given in to any sweet cravings and had any chocolate or anything! in fact, a girl brought me a mini chocolate bar today at work (left over halloween candy i suspect, just those little 2 bite things)... and i secretly gave it to another girl at work while i was feeling strong and before i'd feel weak and cave and eat it... the girls in my office know i'm doing weight watchers... so i asked the one girl to take the chocolate from me before i decided "what the heck" and ate it - and she kindly did so for me! what great coworkers i have!!

so, yesterday i did my 500 sit ups in the morning and went on the treadmill for 35min before work... and today i did my abs in the morning and went on the treadmill tonight! yay me!!!

could someone please figure out a way for me to REMEMBER how GREAT it feels when i get off the treadmill? because there are times at night (especially now that it's dark when i get home from work) when i just feel too tired and lazy to go on the darn thing... but when i get off, i feel so proud of myself and happy... how to remember how great it feels? i've got to invent a 'feeling' machine or something!!

so i bought the all bran guardian cereal.... LOVE IT!!! it's so sweet and yummy... i can't believe it's BRAN!!! 6g of fibre in 1 cup!! go all bran!!!

so, here's today's menu:
*1 cup all bran (2)
*1/2 cup skim milk (1)
*1 tbsp PB light (2)
*2 slices ww toast (1)

*salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber), with chick peas (1), and turkey breast (1)
*2tbsp FF red wine vinegar drsg (1)
*clover leaf flavoured tuna, garlic and hot pepper (2)
*2 tangerines (1)
*4 strawberries (0)

Snack after work:
*1 tsp PB light (1)

*salmon fillet (4)
*1 cup soup (1)

Snack tonight (planned):
*1 cup all bran guardian (2
*1/2 cup skim milk (1)

after much consideration with the flavoured tunas I have decided i have 2 favourites - TOMATO and ONION (tastes good and is only 2 points), and SPICY THAI CHILLI (which is 4 points, but a good treat now and again). the rest are okay... except the sun dried tomato... i do NOT like that one!!!

Tomorrow's grocery List

i did some grocery shopping yesterday... but i have a few more things i have to pick up. one thing i'm DYING to try now is the all bran guardian cereal. it looks and sounds delicious!

I also have to pick up some fat free cottage cheese
so there you have it... the 2 things i'm craving and need to go buy tomorrow! as well as some chick peas and some low fat cheese from reid's dairy. also i think i'd like to buy some of the smart ones frozen dinners again.

okay, enough from me - my bed is calling! goodnight!!

Soup for Me!

so, i'm LOVING the soup recipe i posted a while ago... the brocolli and cauliflower soup. I made it this weekend and alex enjoyed it too.... i'm finding it's super filling without using up points. i realized this weekend how much i can eat without taking up too many points. here's today's menu:

*1c. cheerios (2)
*1/2 c. milk (1)
*2 tangerines (1)

*blue menu wrap (3)
*Sol Veggie pattie (2)
*cheese slice (1)
*1c. soup (1)

*popcorn (3 - YIKES! had the munchies while watching tv!)

*chicken breast (cooked in honey garlic sauce that it had been marinating in all day - YUMMY!)
*soup (1)
*lettuce, tomato, cucumber (0)
*egg white (0)
*1 tbsp ff red wine vinegar drsg (0)
*1 container almond flavoured tofu (2)

*pomegranate (2)

so... there was my totally filling dinner for a grand total of 6 points... seriously, i could hardly move after dinner... in fact, the tofu dessert was more like an hour after i ate dinner.

i've been working on doing 500 sit ups on the exercise ball every day... didn't do it yesterday but did it a couple of days last week (well, decided wed i'd do this morning routine and didn't do it friday or saturday) and did it today. tomorrow will be abs in the morning as well as the treadmill... gotta get this butt whipped in to shape for CHRISTMAS!!!

happy weekend everyone!
