Steak and Chicken Kabobs

The night that I signed up for Weight Watchers I was hanging out at a friend’s house. She was making steak and chicken kabobs for dinner and man they were one of the best meals I had had in a while. She always cooks good food though. And she definitely eats healthier than I do. So it was no surprise that when I entered the recipe in the Weight Watchers app the point value was low.

You know what that means? I stole her dish and made it for myself! lol

WW Week 5 Cont’d

I don’t know how people come up with menus for families each and every week. It’s just me. I typically just need to prepare two meals a week. I eat one for lunch and have the other for dinner. And yet sometimes it is so difficult to figure out what I want to eat. More so when you are trying to make those meals healthy. Whereas families need to come up with 5+ meals and sometimes have to feed picky eaters. I just don’t know how they do it.

WW Week 5

Week 5. I have been doing Weight Watchers for 4 full weeks now. In this time I have lost a total of 8 lbs. Yes, two weeks ago I had a fantastic week and was down 3.2 lbs, last week not so fantastic…down 1 lb. It appears I have a good week then a not so good week then a good week again. If the pattern continues I will have a great week this week again. Only time will tell.

WW Week 3 – Week 4 Recap

So sorry for not posting for a little while. Two weeks ago I came down with a cold, the flu, who knows. All I know is I was sick for 5 days. I just didn’t feel like doing much. Unfortunately it was a busy period at work and I didn’t feel I could take the time off. I did end up missing one day but I attempted to go in. My head was just so foggy that I left almost immediately. I slept most of that day after returning home. Slept or watched tv. It was the only day I allowed myself to do nothing.

WW Week 2 Recap

Last week I was starting to feel less bloated and I loved it! This week I am not experiencing that feeling as much as I expected too. I was hoping that the bloating was gone for good and that I was beyond that feeling forever. Ha! It was only one week. One week doesn’t change forever. You have to continue making good decisions every day, every week. In my case this week, I’m sure it has a large part to do with the choice of food that I ate – pasta for lunch everyday. But I did stay within my points so I’m hoping that this will not reflect on the scale. We’ll see soon.

Food Scale

When I used to count calories I would measure everything I ate with my measuring cups and spoons. But I didn’t have a food scale to measure ounces. Since I’ve decided to start paying attention to what I’m eating again (this time by counting points) I broke down and bought a food scale.

Penne w/ Pea and Spinach Pesto and Asparagus

I’ve been trying to make this meal for a couple weeks now. I started to purchase the ingredients the day my sister convinced me to not finish my grocery shopping and join her and our Mom for dinner. I’m glad that I met them, the steak was fabulous!, but it messed with my dinner plans for the week. The following week I got back on track and purchased everything that was needed. But then I never prepared the dish.
