Unfortunately, since my last weigh-in post, I missed two weekly Weight Watcher weigh-ins due to my Pigeon Forge vacation and Labor Day. Also, this week, because of Hurricane Florence, my workouts have been non-existent. Instead, I’ve been shopping, running errands, and cleaning house to ensure we are as storm-ready as possible. I had hoped to visit the pool in the evenings, but thunderstorms have prevented me from doing that as well. I am hopeful that next week I can get back on track with my workouts. I did manage to prep dinner meals last week, and still have 4 left for this week. My lunches for this upcoming week will be simple 1-point meals.

After this week’s weigh-in, I am down 3.4 lbs. from the last weigh-in on August 20th. My total weight loss so far is 10.2 lbs!

Here are my meal plans for this coming week:

  • Oatmeal (¼ cup with Stevia) – 2 SP
  • Bananas – 0 SP

Fajitas with Corn and Lima Beans – 1 SP

(I make these using Ole’ Xtreme Wellness tortillas, frozen chicken breast strips, and refried beans. I will also have corn and lima beans as my side- and yes, the whole meal only counts for 1 SP!)

  • Bananas – 0 SP
  • Cheese Sticks – 1 SP
  • Weight Watchers Popped BBQ Potato Crisps – 2 SP
  • Weight Watchers Chocolate Supreme Mug Cake – 3 SP
  • Breyers No Sugar Added Vanilla Ice Cream – 4 SP
  • Great Value Orange Sherbet Tubes – 4 SP
  • Great Value Turkey Sausage Sticks (1 stick) – 1 SP
  • Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs – 11 SP
  • Corn & Sausage Chili – 3 SP
  • Inside Out Chicken Cordon Bleu – 5 SP
  • Slow Cooked Cajun Red Beans – 4 SP

Lately, dinners have been lasting my husband and me two nights. I use 5 Dinners 1 Hour for my weekly dinner meal prep and I love it! I prep five meals on Sunday and they last us two weeks – sometimes longer. For my lunches, I try to plan something I don’t mind eating all week so I don’t grow tired of it and stray from my meal plan. I generally eat out once a week for lunch, but this is planned and I make sure I have enough Smart Points for it and the rest of my meals for the day.

Planning ahead has really helped me stay on track as it allows me to plan my points and stay within my daily allotment. Next week I plan to get more movement into my days either at the gym or at the pool.

What methods do you use to stay on track with your health goals?
