So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff, some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.
As always my Weight Watchers Points into the fold.
When did I become the girl that craves shredded mini wheats? Guess that means I’m growing up. My breakfast was 6 points.
My Veggie Straw addiction is real, and it’s strong I’ve purchased two bags from Costco in 3 days, my mother is even eating (and liking them). My snack was 3 points . If previous WIAW I was giving veggie straws a point value of 4 points, not sure how that happened, but it’s been corrected.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a ham sandwich, and since I’m in no mood to cook, I added a little bit of mustard and a wedge of laughing cow cheese and I was good to go…. oh and some more Veggie Straws! My lunch was 8 points
My cousin made chicken noodle soup and brought be some, so I portioned it out into 1 cup servings and stuck them in the freezer, perfect for those cold days when you don’t want to cook. Added some fruit and yogurt to round out the meal. My dinner was 6 points
So not only did nothing I eat today require me to turn on an oven/stove (I’m not counting the microwave) but I used the same bowl throughout the day. WIN!
My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,067 calories ! . I used a total of 23 Weight Watcher Points Plus, and had 10 left over. I’ve gone back to using all of my allotted points since the Marathon of Food (Holiday Season) is over.
The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, but with it being colder outside and me try to ramp of the workouts I should be getting more water in.
Until Next Time…
