I’m down 8 pounds in the last three weeks with Weight Watchers. I have fallen off the track a few times but I quickly jumped right back on. I know many people have a hard time following any type of food plan. I really feel that planning is what helps keep me on track. On Thursday nights while watching Big Brother, I’ve been planning my menu for the upcoming week. Normally I grab a cookbook off from my shelf and plan my meals from the book. Then the next week I’ll grab another one, etc. Trying new recipes helps keep your diet switched up so it doesn’t get boring.
Here’s this week’s menu:
Here’s a little from last week’s menu:

Southwest Chicken Salad
Bruschette Pizza (6 SP)
Macaroni Chicken Salad (7 SP) with a side salad (3 SP)
I’m not a big one on exercise. I have tried many exercise programs but find I really dislike exercising. A week ago, my 21 year old son started heading out the door in the evening to meet up with some friends. He’s normally a home-body and it peaked my interest to find out why he was leaving the house more often than usual. That’s when I was introduced to a game called Pokemon Go. My 24 year old daughter is also playing the game. I decided to download the app to see what it was all about. Guess what happened? I started playing it! Two nights last week, both of my kids and myself went for walks around a few local parks to catch Pokemon. It’s exercising without knowing it. I get to burn some calories all while gaining experience by hatching eggs and catching Pokemon. I’m hoping this is a trend for video game companies. Let’s get off the couch!
Anyone else playing Pokemon Go?
