Weekly Weigh In

Well, here it is Saturday morning, so I just got on the scales and ……  I lost exactly 1 pound.  You would think I would be happy right!  I wished it had been a little more though!!!!!!!!  But as I said last week I will reach my goal by the end of the year with a pound a week, so I should be pleased right!!!!

Week One – Lost 1 pound – 24 more to go!

The week was really busy for me, I have been bringing work home with me.  We are working on our e-commerce website.  We have a retail store selling printer cartridges and an e-commerce site.  At home I have been adding product and linking to printer models.  Very exciting stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kept track of my eats (!) together with pictures.

So here goes the start of another week with 49 Weekly Points Plus.  I need to get some shopping done this morning before heading off to Calgary.  Bruce and I are going to see Les Miserables.

WEDNESDAY

Breakfast – Greek Yoghurt Parfait

Greek Yoghurt Parfrait

For my parfait I layered up Greek yoghurt, blueberries and Fibre one cereal – all 100% Simply Filling

Lunch – Ham “Thinwich”, Tomato, Watermelon/Kiwi Mix

I really like the “thins”, I filled mine with sliced ham, lettuce, tomatoes and a little mustard.  This together with my sides made for a 100% Simply Filling lunch.

Dinner – Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork, Tossed Salad, Low Calorie Dressing

While at work today I had some pork tenderloin cooking in the slow cooker to make Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork.    I cooked enough for a couple of evenings and some lunches too.  So the pork was Simply Filling + 1WPA and 2 Points Plus for the dressing.

Daily Total:  Simply Filling + 3 Weekly Points Allowance

THURSDAY

Breakfast – Individual Blueberry Oatmeal Cup

Breakfast 16th

I really enjoy these for breakfast.  Today was a hot morning, so I decided to just eat it cold and I still enjoyed the flavor.  These cups are Simply Filling + 1WPA.

Lunch – Pineapple Pork Wrap, Watermelon, Grapes

For lunch today I had some of the pork from last night and put it in a wrap with some lettuce, chopped tomatoes and grated carrot.  Very yummy.  I only had about a half portion of the meat, so it was 100% Simply Filling for my wrap.  The wraps I use are the Flatout wraps which are low calorie and so are part of the Weightwatchers Simply Filling Technique.  I had my wrap with some watermelon and grapes.  I have lots of watermelon cubed in the fridge ready to take and go!!

Dinner – Salmon Burger, Tossed Salad, Low Calorie Dressing

It is 28 degrees today, so we ate outside.  My fave thing to do!  I had a burger (grilled salmon in a thin ).  Topped with a little red pepper jelly and served up with salad and sliced watermelon.  ( Simply Filling + 3 WPA ) .  Also a nice easy one as I have my Zumba class on a Thursday at 8:30pm.

Daily Total – Simply Filling + 4 Weekly Points Allowance

 

FRIDAY

Breakfast – Individual Blueberry Oatmeal Cup

Breakfast 16th

Ate the last one this morning – maybe I will have to make some more this weekend!!  These cups are Simply Filling + 1WPA.

Lunch – Pineapple Pork Salad, Watermelon, Cherries

DSC00331

I told you there was plenty of the pork!!!  I had this salad with some of the those French’s Fried Onions, they are obviously not Simply Filling, so it was 1 WPA for those and my dressing was 2 WPA.  Finished off the last of the cherries that I bought this week.  I love cherries and these were really good.  Also took some more watermelon to work with me too!  I bought a watermelon last Saturday, so it has been my main fruit this week.  When there are only two at home a watermelon goes a long way!

Dinner – Pineapple Pork Salad, Watermelon

My husband had to pop out of town on a business trip today and I wasn’t sure what time to expect him back.  I got busy when I got home and then about 7, I decided I really should fix myself something to eat.  The salad I had at lunch time was delicious, so I just decided to repeat it – lettuce, shredded carrots, baby tomatoes, sliced grapes, sliced pork, French’s Onions and dressing, Simply Filling + 3 WPA for the extras.  Had some more watermelon too!!!!!!

Daily Total – Simply Filling + 7 Weekly Points Allowance

NEXT WEEK’S MENU

As you know these things can change but planned is:

Breakfast – Tomato Ricotta Pie and Blueberry Peach Oatmeal.

Lunch – These are generally leftover based from the night before.

TUESDAY

BREAKFAST – Simply Filling + 1WPA

After a wonderful long weekend, it was tough getting ready to head off to work.  Thankfully I had one of those Blueberry Oatmeal Cups ( Simply Filling + 1WPA or 5 Points Plus) that I love all ready to go in the fridge.  Quick zap in the microwave and there was breakfast.  By 9:30 this morning it was already 26 degrees, so I enjoyed my oatmeal cup on the deck enjoying the warmth before heading off to work.

LUNCH – 100% Simply Filling

We took a picnic to the beach yesterday and I still had some of the delicious salad left.

I made a Black Bean & Corn Salad.

Lunch July 2

So for lunch I had some of that salad, a small green salad, cherries, grapes and a kiwi fruit.  Everything was 100% Simply Filling.

DINNER – 100% Simply Filling

For dinner this evening I made Turkey Mushroom Burgers.  All ingredients are Simply Filling if you make your own breadcrumbs using a low calorie bread.

Took a bite before I remembered the picture I needed to take!!

I have Zumba on a Tuesday evening at 7pm, so I came home from work a little early to get things going, so I was able to eat before class.  In my haste I took a bite before I remembered that I hadn’t taken a picture!!

The temperature when I left the house to go to Zumba was 36 degrees.  Even though there is air conditioning, I was dripping by the end of my class.  I absolutely love Zumba.  It is definitely my kind of exercise.  I really don’t feel like it is hard work at all.  It is so much fun.

 

 

HAPPY SUNDAY ALL

Headed out yesterday to get some fresh produce etc and realized that this is a long weekend.  July 1st on Monday – Happy Canada Day.

I had written out a detailed menu plan for the week – breakfasts, lunches and dinners.  But I know that the weekend isn’t going to go exactly to plan!

To be honest yesterday wasn’t too bad.

I decided to put together some of the Blueberry Oatmeal Cups that I love.  They are Simply Filling plus 1 WPA.  So I popped these in the oven while I was getting ready to head out to do some grocery shopping.   The recipes makes 3, so there is breakfast all sorted out for another couple of mornings during the coming week.

Blueberry Oat Cups

Saturday is the start of a new week, so I have 49 Weekly Points Plus to spend.  For anyone new to Simply Filling, any Simply Filling foods are not counted, you only count points for other items.

At lunch time I tried out a new recipe – Tortilla Espanola.  It was 100% Simply Filling, but to be honest for the amount of time it took to put it together, I don’t think it is something I will make again.  I am not even adding it to my recipe collection here.  Usually I like to put my recipes into a category and then link to them from my daily entry, that way I can find them again too!!

Tortilla Espanola – Serves 3 – 100% Simply Filling – 5 Points Plus

  • 2 medium potatoes, sliced into very thin rounds
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 Tbsp diced red pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the potatoes and cook for 4-5 mins until just tender.  Drain under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat with olive oil.  Add the onion and red pepper and cook for 3 mins.  Add the potatoes and cook until beginning to crisp, about 5 mins.  Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Whisk together egg, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the eggs into the skillet,  cook for about 5 mins or until it sets on the side.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 mins until cooked completely

I had a slice of this Tortilla Espanola with a bunch of grapes for a 100% Simply Filling lunch.

So far so good, but then things changed.  I had planned to make Turkey Mushroom Burgers but ended out going out for a bite to eat instead.

I went to Café Verde and had a salad.  The salad is placed inside a large freshly made tortilla, this I did not eat.  So my salad was:

cafe rio salad

Fat Carb Fibre Protein Points Plus
12″ Flour   Tortilla 14 62 2 8 11
Black Beans 2 21 7 8 3 SF
Rice 2.5 24 0 3 4 SF
Steak 6 0 0 14 3 SF
Cilantro Lime   Dressing 14 11 0 0 5
Lettuce 0 0 0 0 0 SF
Pico de Gallo 0 0 0 0 0 SF
Sour Cream 5 1 0 1 1
Guacamole 4 2 2 0 1
28

So if I had devoured the whole thing it was a whopping Simply Filling + 18 Points Plus – Ouch!  I didn’t eat the tortilla so that was Simply Filling + 7 Weekly Points Plus.

  • Lunch – 100% Simply Filling
