Back on the Wagon

Thursday, February 6, 2014

Well, I'm back on Weight Watchers. This is week two. I was on a roll of working out and eating well and feeling good about a year ago... and then one of my best friends moved across the country. My healthy habits took a nose dive (she was my gym buddy!), and I neither watched what I ate or exercised for about a year.  Fifteen pounds later, I finally decided to do something about it. So it's back to the gym & back to mindful eating for me!

Wes makes a delicious butternut squash soup -- something I would've never thought I'd like -- and I was delighted tonight to find out that it's only 3 points for a whole cup! Yum! [He does only use 1 Tbsp EVOO instead of two -- that makes a difference.] Couple with 1/2 an apple and a slice of italian bread with butter & it's a fantastic 6-point meal. Here's the recipe if you're curious:

For the record, I went to Zumba tonight, too. It was hard! I'm happy to be home on the couch with my hubs & pooch. Now to decide if I'm willing to spend an extra 3 points on dessert....

You can do it! It is hard when friends move (or in my case, its really cold). Motivation sometimes goes right out the window. But, you'll fee better!

Say something...
