Weight Watchers - Week One

Monday, April 22, 2013

Started Weight Watchers this past week
Sunday was 1 week
Down 5.2 pounds
I think I'm off to a good start

It's not even like a diet
just a healthy way of eating

Below is some of the dishes I made this week
I'm posting on instagram if you want to follow along
sherislowey is my instagram name

I've been walking and bike riding as well
Crunches and leg lifts daily

I'm posting here to hold my self accountable
wish me luck! 

 Fruit Smoothie
Strawberries, peaches, 1/2 cup orange juice, fresh squeezed lime
I counted it 5 points
would have used light lemonade to make it less points but I didn't have any

 This is a mixture of honey and Cinnamon that I made
actually taste like tea
drink hot 
it's really good for you 
*see earlier post on blog

 Egg whites with veggies 
Pour the egg white in a muffin tin (with liners)
add any veggies you want
So yummy and ZERO points

 Roasted veggies
Arrange on baking pan
Add your favorite veggies
Spray lightly with light olive oil
Added salt, pepper and garlic
roasted until crisp!  
Seriously could eat these every meal

 Baked fish with seasoning and lemon
Lemon makes everything taste better
I'm not a big fish eater

 Chicken with fresh thyme and rosemary
light dressing to keep it juicy

More roasted veggies
eating these daily

That's a wrap of my first week!

Cinnamon and Honey

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I joined Weight Watchers this week
I'm turning the BIG 5 - 0 next month!
I have been reading, researching and trying to get in shape
get healthy!

I have been reading about the benefits of honey and cinnamon.
The first thing I discovered is that it aids in weight loss and then I found the following

I have checked with a friend who is totally into this stuff and 
she confirmed it to be true.
Thanks Stacy! 

I just had my first cup tonight and it's not bad at all.

I also read today that you can mix the honey and cinnamon and use it as a spread on toast 
Going to try that tomorrow morning

I'll keep you posted!

Weight Watchers Beef Tacos

Taco Tuesday Continues 

While I made traditional tacos this week for my family,
I made a weight watchers version for myself

large lettuce leaves
lean ground beef with taco seasoning
(scrambled in pan)
chopped up:
jalapeno peppers 
added about 2 table spoons of white rice (cooked)
the large lettuce leaves served as my taco shell
added some salsa on top

6 points for two large lettuce leaf tacos!

UNF - Another college visit!

Sunday, April 14, 2013

this weekend we visited another college
University of North Florida
Jacksonville, FL
3 1/2 hours from home
beautiful campus
a little far :(
but home to a close family friend :)

Jake, Josh and Sav upon arrival.
(Josh in the middle attends UNF)

Up bright and early the next day for the school tour! 

Walking the beautiful campus. 

Sav's favorite place on earth
This could be a deal closer as the ones in our area have closed!

Another view around the campus

Josh's dorm - not real girlie but we did get to visit a
 friend of his that was definitely a girl room :)

These little guys were all over campus - are they not the cutest?
