A Perfect 22

8 Aug

Today is my second day at 22 points; weekends are either really hard to not mess up my points on or really easy…never just run of the mill. shrug. I think it’s cause I sleep in and just eat whenever I want not when it fits into my work schedule. When left to my own devices I go to extremes, I either eat everything in sight or nothing at all. Since following weight watchers I can’t do that; I have to eat the same amount on the weekends as I do on the weekdays…I still find it hard but losing weight is worth the effort. 🙂 I noticed today that on weekends I am still for the most part eating my food in big sessions instead of small meals throughout the day like all the experts say I am s’posed to do but hey, least I am still eating my points. lol.

I had these really amazing grilled veggies with my dinner today; I got them from M&m’s Meat Shop – the same place I got those salmon steaks from. I wanted to get them earlier in the summer when they first came out but when I noticed them it was right before I was going on vacation so there didn’t seem to be any point in getting them then. Turns out it was a good thing I didn’t get them then cause when I went in to the store yesterday they were on sale cause it’s now end of summer and they are getting new things to replace the grilled veggies. Works for me! There are a mixture of veggies in the package; you just put some on a baking tray, drizzle them with a bit of vegetable oil and stick them in a pre-heated oven for 18 mins…yum! I burned them a little but they were still good. 🙂 I like how they are frozen so I don’t have to rush eating them; I had some today and I am sure I will eat more of them this coming week but if I decide I don’t want to eat any of them for a while it doesn’t matter cause they’ll just sit in my freezer waiting for me. Yah for frozen food! lol

There are two conflicting arguments about veggies; some people say don’t buy frozen cause they lose nutritional value in the freezing process, others say eating frozen is better because they are flash frozen and the nutritional value is retained while the “fresh” veggies we buy at the grocery store have been travelling for who knows how long and everyday they are away from the day they were picked they lose nutrients. I am not a food scientist, I try to research what I hear and wonder about so I can know the facts about what I am doing and make lifestyle changes accordingly but this one I just don’t know. shrug. I keep coming up with conflicting information so I am going to leave the figuring out of this problem to the scientists and continue to eat a combination of fresh and frozen veggies. Seems like a safe bet to me! 🙂

Today I ate:

1/2 cup Heinz Maple Baked Beans = 2 points

1 fried egg = 2 points

2 pcs toast = 2 points

2 tsp margarine = 2 points

1 tblsp Kraft Raspberry Jam = 1 point

1 piece frozen battered fish = 4 points

grilled veggies = 0 points

1/2 cup Sidekicks Cheddar Broccoli rice = 3 points

1 medium slush = 2 points

1 cup 1% milk = 2 points

1 pckg Weight Watchers Cheese Twists = 2 points

Total points used is 22. 😀

the weight watchers version of Thinsation Cheetos

The weight watchers cheese twists are the ww version of Thinsations Cheetos (which are really good!)…these are pretty good, they have a slightly off flavour that I can’t pin down but that’s alright. I guess weight watchers figured if people were gonna go crazy over all the Thinsation snacks out there they might as well get there own version and rake in more money that way. lol. Can’t really blame them. I think the next time I will probably buy the Thinsation Cheetos over the weight watcher cheese twists because (1) the cheetos have a slightly better flavour and (2) the thinsations are cheaper. Nothing against weight watchers food, shrug, but I have to look out for my bank account balance here. lol.

It will be interesting to see how I do with my 22 points when it’s a work day; this weekend was easy. The weather was rainy and blah so I stayed in for most of the 2 days just reading and watching movies, relaxing. Aaaah, so nice! Because I was so inactive and slept so much tho my appetite was less then what it is on a more active day, not like at work I am crazy active but I am awake for longer on work days and just from normal daily activities am more active. I have gotten ready some raw veggies for me to have as a snack that way if I want to eat more then what my 22 points will let me I can eat those and not use any points. Hopefully this plan works! 🙂
