Today's nosh :)

pumpkin protein smoothie, whole wheat cranberry blueberry muffin

veggies, cheese, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries

Beef tenderloin, broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce, oven baked fries, olive oil, glass of wine, unpictured is the banana I had for dessert!
This is why I love Weight Watchers I can plan an awesome dinner like this and still be within my points!

I'm so glad I went on a walk!!

The wind died down, there was surprisingly no mud and here's why I'm so glad :)

A few things that work for me lately...

1. Only weighing in once a week! The one time I peaked a couple of days early my weight was up and I wanted to give up but by my weigh in day 2 days later I'd lost :)

2. Veggies and fruits! I love them. I will eat cherry tomatoes like candy

3. Movement of all sorts. Going out of my way to walk a few extra steps! Putting extra effort into my walking

4. For quite a while now I have not eaten after dinner and it works for me. Not for everyone but after dinner I know the kitchen is closed.

5. Organizing my kitchen so that I know what I have and where it is when I want it.

6. Lots and lots of water! Helps to keep me feeling full between meals.

7. Blogging I have my mojo back :)

8. Twitter going for my #30daychip has really helped me to stay strong and motivated.

9. Variety in food and exercise really helps to keep me happy.

10. Journaling everything I eat. I find this really helps me to plan my food and stay on my plan.

11. My weekly challenges :)

What's working for you lately?? Would love hear any new ideas or old ones that I've forgotten.

Lunch was some green beans, laughing cow cheese,  tofu and 2 clementines

I took a protein drink, cranberry blueberry whole wheat muffin, and some veggies

After work I'm going to enjoy a glass of wine! Stayed within my weight watcher points :)

Question day once again!!

Have fun with these!

1. Do you plan your exercise for the week? If so how many days do you normally exercise??

2. What is your favourite seasoning??

3. What is your favourite flavour of coffee or tea?

4. What was the last movie you watched?

5. Have you tried any new foods lately? Did you like them? Care to share?

Hope your having a great day

Last day of work for this week :)

Happy Easter everyone!

And I have to admit I'm ready to have a day off! After today I get two days off then I work a day then I get another day off :)

I started today with some oats, banana, cocoa granola, and peanut butter. Oh and I added an egg white at the end as usual. Gives me more protein and I stay a lot less hungry.

For lunch I had Mary's crackers! Low fat cheese and grapefruit. Someone asked about Mary's crackers, they're very crunch and made from seeds. They are wheat free and gluten free and have no added oils or fats.

I'm packing some chicken strips, salad and dressing and some yoghurt, granola and mango butter :)
Hope your having a good day!
