A Peek Into My World & My Journey To Find Healthy Success

Last Day of Freedom!

Well, yesterday evening was the day that I recommitted to Weight Watchers and this time I believe that it is going to stick.  I am the happiest about the new program because all fruit and most of the veggies are now FREE.  That use to be the downside of the old program.  I would always choose something else instead of a fruit because why use 2 points for a banana when you can have something like a 100 calorie pack of cookies for the same amount of points.  It never really made sense to me at all but now this new program seems to make more sense and I am just excited to see what happens on the scale next Monday evening.

To start it off today I had a yummy bowl of oatmeal and strawberries…

and I finally had a Clementine after passing them up about 10 times in the grocery store.  I will never pass you up again.  I haven’t had one it probably more than 10 years and totally forgot what they tasted like.  They are so sweet and juicy and I just fell in love with them all over again.  I will definitely be sad when they go out of season and they are not in the grocery store anymore.

Anyway, if you are all wondering why this post is called last day of freedom it is because this is the last day of my Christmas break and I start my next semester at school tomorrow.  I don’t know if I am ready or not but I am sure about one thing, that I don’t have to drive an hour to school this semester.  I took all online classes this semester because last semester I look one class on campus and the drive there was horrible.  So this semester I don’t have to drive at all and then fall semester I will most likely be living on campus so I am so excited to see what they year holds for me!  Well, I have to do some cleaning (because I didn’t get very much done yesterday) and then I have to get some work done.  Later everyone!

So tired today…

I didn’t even set my alarm today like I usually do. I just wanted to get as much sleep as possible because I was so exhausted from being in the sun all day and everything. I slept until like 11am and I am still tired but I got out of bed anyway and I will just have to go to bed early tonight so I can catch up on my sleep and feel rested for tomorrow. Anyway, for breakfast I made…

waffles with some yummy banana, raspberries, blueberries and sugar free syrup on them. Oh, so yummy! I love waffles. Then, after I was done eating I worked on some posts and before I knew it, it was time for lunch because I was hungry again. I had some…

pasta salad (leftovers from last night), with some tuna, and fat free mayo. On the side I had a fuji apple. I didn’t think I was going to like the tuna and mayo in the pasta but it was really good. I think I might have to try it with shredded chicken next time thought. I think I would like it even more with that.

Well, I am off. I will be back a little later.

Ugh! Monday..

The weekend went by way to fast this week. Before I knew it it was over 😦 But there is always another weekend coming up so I guess it will be okay.. Since I went to bed last night I thought it would be a good idea to sleep in and they to get at least 7 hours of sleep. If I didn’t do that I think I would have been a little cranky… haha. Finally when I woke up I had breakfast…

a filling bowl of multi-grain cheerios with banana, raspberries, blueberries, and Silk brand almond milk poured over it. Yes, there are cheerios underneath all that fruit.. haha. When I looked at the bowl it only looked like fruit with almond milk. So yummy and filling. I have noticed that I get hungry really quick after eating breakfast most of the time. So I thought I would try and bulk it up a little bit and see what it would do. It definitely helped hold me over until lunch time and I didn’t have to have a snack in between. For lunch I made…

a regular it seems like because it is so quick and easy to whip up. a Morningstar Farms Chik’n Patty with, onion and pickles. On the side my homemade yummy fries 🙂 Well, now I am off to do a little work that I have been meaning to do but have been majorly procrastinating on. I will be back in a little while. Have a wonderful day!!!

Spent the day with…

My Dad! Of course 😀 We decided to stay in and just make something at home for lunch. We couldn’t think of anything that we wanted at the time. So I made…

a shredded chicken wrap with some mayo, grapes, onion, slivered almonds, and some black pepper. On the side i have a juicy peach and half of a Fuji apple. I was so filling and so good. Around 7pm we went to my grandma’s house because my dad wanted to go see her new puppy. The puppy was a lot more spunky then she was when I was over there last week. We stayed there for a couple hours and on the way home we were trying to figure out something to getting for dinner. Everything we thought of was already closed because everything closes so early on Sundays. I suggested that we just run in the grocery store and get some things to make at home and then we can watch one of the movies that we rented. So we went to the store and brought home…

a tuscan style chicken flatbread pizza. My mom and I shared it and it was rather filling and not horrible in calories. While we ate we watched Shutter Island. It was kind of creepy in some parts, and definitely twisty. Well, I’m off to bed. Night!!

Well today was weigh in…

It went okay but not the greatest. I lost 0.3 pounds which isn’t bad because I still lost but I wish it would have been more. It could be getting to be that TOM so that could be the reason I didn’t lose that much. Oh well, it happens just move on and continue doing what I am doing 🙂

After I weighed myself I was starving so I had…

a bowl of multi-grain and chocolate cheerios, Silk almond milk, and some yummy raspberries. I love the raspberries in this cereal, so good! Now I am watching the Tigers baseball game with my dad and we’re trying to think of something to have for lunch. I will be back a little later with more. Have a wonderful Sunday, and Happy Father’s Day Daddy! I love you!!! 😀
