Very veggie pasta sauce!!

I’m participating in a 5-a-day challenge on blog to lose to try to eat all your veggies and fruits per day. So far, its going great. I’ve been eating fruits and veggies as snacks and sneaking them in my smoothies, and tonight I snuck a ton in my pasta sauce! Since its getting towards the…

Savory Spicy Oats

I’ve seen a lot of bloggers, including my sister make these for breakfast and I have to say, I was always skeptical. Well, that all changed today, when I decided to take the plunge and see what happened. I wasn’t quite sure what people put into their spicy oats, so I just googled it and…

Quick dinner

When I got home from work, I had already made the announcement I was working out before dinner. It was so nice outside, I decided to talk a brisk 30 minute walk. Once I told my kids, I was going walking and would be back soon, all three of them chimed in if they could…

Oh how I love stir fry!

This is something I can have virtually every day and never get tired of it! It’s a lot of chopping, but I just chopped all the veggies: celery, carrot, garlic, red onion, cauliflower, pea pods, broccoli slaw, water chestnuts and sauteed them in a pan until they were crisp tender. Then I emptied the skillet…

Dutch Baby!

Weekend breakfasts are my favorite because I usually sleep in and have a late breakfast, so that usually turns into breakfast and lunch, so I can have something with a little more points. Searching bed and breakfast recipes again, I came across a recipe for a dutch baby. If you don’t know what a dutch…

Crustless Pumpkin Pie + Weigh-in Friday!!

Since starting back counting points these last few weeks, I always go through all the things I did the first time I lost 60 pounds using Weight Watchers. I’ve kept all my food journals, recipes, tips from my success to try to help me out this time. I found this recipe which brought back great…

Jumbo Blueberry Muffins

Thanks to Jen @ a2eatwrite@blogspot.com for inspiring me to make these muffins. I visited her site yesterday and saw her blueberry muffin recipe. We exchanged a few e-mails, and I was excited to make them last night. Of course, when I got home, I didn’t have all of the ingredients I needed, so this is…

30 day shred+ yummy dinner

I’m trying to stick to a program where I work out as soon as I get home from work. I only work about 5 minutes from my house, so I am home by 5:05 and by 5:15 I am ready to go to work out until 6:00 and its still not too late to start…

mac n cheese and blueberries!!!

Yesterday was a great day! It was one of those days that I got everything done that I wanted, I stayed within my points, I EXERCISED, and made a great dinner! First of all, one of the best things that happened yesterday was this: My friend Kathy brought me back blueberries from her summer cottage…

Happy Monday!

I had a great weekend, I used some of my flex points, but all in all I did great keeping track of my points!! I think the biggest thing for me is to plan so I don’t have to go out for lunch at work, or be tempted by a huge bakery muffin on my…
