My Journey to a Healthier Me – Day 6

So yesterday I lost another 1.5 to make my total up until that point, 4.9# in 5 days. Woo Hoo! I love it! I didn’t get back on to blog my food for the rest of the day so I’ll do that now before I get to the beginning of Day 6.

Yesterday I started my morning with my chocolate vegan/vanilla Shakeology made with 20oz of water for 4SP.I love my Shakeology and if you’re interested in trying it visit Beach Body for more info. Then I had another yummy lunch yesterday made with the Fit & Active Flatbread multi-grain w/flax (I’m going to have to stock up on these, they’re so good!). These wraps are pretty big and only 2sp. I put 5 slices of Aldi’s turkey on it, mustard and lettuce and wrapped her up like a burrito. A healthy burrito! Topped it off with an apple, dill pickles and carrots and my entire lunch was only 4SP. Filled me up good until dinner time.

For dinner we had skinless, boneless chicken breasts seasoned, steamed broccoli and baked potatoes. I had 5oz of chicken, 1 cup of broccoli and a baked potato topped with 2tbsp of tostitos medium cheese sauce and 2tbsp of sour cream (total guilty pleasure right there!). My dinner was 10SP and boy was I full and satisfied! I never remember to take a picture of my dinner. I’ll work on that!

This left me with 12SP for the evening. I had to do a little grocery shopping so I took this time by myself to scan a ton of items to see if they were something I’d add into my meal plans. I’m pretty sure people thought I was goofy or something, but I didn’t really care. I care about my health so I’m going to scan items before I buy them. I ended up getting more fruits and even some Cooking Light Popcorn which I can eat 3-1/2 cups for 5SP.  I need a crunchy snack every now and again. Who doesn’t?

My snack last night was one of my favorites! Pizza! (If you’d like the recipe, click here). This time Mark and Luke both made their pizzas using the Fit & Active wraps as well, but they rolled theirs up instead of leaving them flat like mine. Mark liked his, Luke was a little on the fence, but said it was alright. He’s 18 and loves pizza so I wasn’t sure if he’d like it or not. I used one serving of the mozzarella cheese this time so my pizza was 9SP instead of 11SP like last time. This left me going to bed with 3SP left over and that’s still within my WW range. I need to be within 3SP, either under or over (using weekly SP if over).

This morning I weighed myself, not sure if I’d lose because of eating pizza at 9:30pm last night, but I weighed myself anyway. It keeps me on track to weigh myself every day. I’m that kind of person. Today, I’m down another 0.5# for a total of 5.4# in 6 days on Weight Watchers!! I’m so happy! I know every week isn’t going to be this way as I should only lose 1-2# per week on the norm, but starting out my body is adjusting to the change in food and amount of food I’m eating.

A light switched for me this morning after weighing myself. I realized that I used to eat a lot of food just because I was bored. Now I eat every couple hours, but I’m eating better foods so it’s not bloating me up with sugars and calories. Weight Watchers is a program that works if you work it. This is my second time on the program. The first time was back in 2003 and I lost 31# in 5 months time. Life happened and I gained the weight back but at 45 years old I’m making a life change this time around. This isn’t to say that I’m not going to eat regular pizza cause I sure am! Tonight in fact. Friday is pizza night in our home and if I need to dip into my weekly SP then I will. I have them for a reason. Plus eating healthy during my morning and afternoon will allot me high points for dinner.

I’m really enjoying blogging about my weight loss journey. It helps me stay on track. It helps hold me accountable. It helps me share what works for me and that may work for you if you’re looking to lose weight and get healthy too. I may ramble a bit but that’s ok.
