Weigh-In Wed…. +.8

I didn’t get a chance to go to my regular Weight Watchers meeting, but unofficially I gained .8 this week.  I’m not worried about it though.  I’ve had a loss for the last 10 weeks, and last week I still wrote everything down, and exercised 5x, so I still feel great and more motivated than…

Hemp Milk?

I never thought in a million years I would try Hemp milk!  I didn’t even know it existed until a few months ago.  What is Hemp milk?  It’s a non-dairy product that comes from the Hemp seed.  I started reading about it and it turns out that Hemp seeds is a super food, meaning it has a ton…

Vegan cooking/Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Muffin

I have been reading more and experimenting with Vegan cooking.  Not so much for the reasons most people are, but by the way you can cook without using margarine, oil, eggs etc…  For those of you who don’t know what being Vegan is, here is a definition from their site www.vegan.org.  what is a VEGAN? A…

Making the switch to Whole Wheat/Muffin of the week

I’ve finally made the switch to buying things that are whole grain/whole wheat.  For the longest time, I didn’t buy the whole wheat pasta, for example, because I thought it would taste bad.  The funny thing is it doesn’t taste any different to me than regular pasta, and with an average of 6 grams of…

Want power not Will power

I was thinking about this today.  I’ve been doing really well for the last 3 months on my healthy eating plan and I’ve noticed some subtle changes that I think are helping me stay on track.  Usually I will do good for a couple of weeks, write everything down, count my points, exercise etc… and…

Great dinner idea

Sometimes when I go to the store, I have a plan about what I am making every night.  Growing up, my Mom would do the weekly shopping, make a menu and post it on the refrigerator so if you asked her “What’s for dinner?”, she would say “Look on the fridge!”  I have tried to do that…

Eat this….not that

I have been reading about this book through Men’s Health on-line. (www.menshealth.com) and this book was written by the Editor in Chief of Men’s Health magazine.  Basically, his approach is a non-diet way of looking at food, and knowing what the right choices are when you are faced with a decision of two dishes that you…

Weigh-In Wednesday – down 1.4!!!

I went to Weight Watchers today and was elated to be down another 1.4 pounds!  I thought today as I was sitting in my meeting that I think this time its for real, this is going to be my year to make goal again.  The funny thing is that I am starting to notice the…

Diet coke chocolate muffins

I forgot how much I liked these muffins until I made them again last night.  For most Weight Watchers they are familiar with making muffins this way.  Basically you take any muffin mix (the one I used was 170 calories for 1 cupcake, mix only) and add 1 can of diet coke.  You don’t have…

Granola with blueberries and banana

I’ve had this breakfast the last 2 days:  2/3 cup granola, 1/2 cup of skim milk, 1 small banana and 1 cup of fresh blueberries and both days I was not hungry even when it was lunch time.  So, I am trying it out for a week.  I figure if it keeps me fuller longer,…
